Many say that the Second Boer War was the first of the modern era. They will site the use of magazine rifles, the machine gun and trenches. Unfortunately that is not quite true. The Spanish American War of 1898 precedes the events of the Boer War by more than a year. Trench warfare in some form has been around since man started beating each other with stones. The machine gun can be debated as far back as the American Civil War depending on your definition. Dr. Gatling was making a machine to make war so terrible we would stop (like that’s going to work!). One turn of the crank handle would send multiple rounds downrange from a number of the Gatling Gun’s multiple barrels. One can say it was a machine gun. However, the common definition requires a single pull of the trigger to send multiple rounds down range from…

On Tuesday, October 2, 2012, the Fox Valley Conservative Forum, which meets regularly for a luncheon on Tuesdays in Appleton, Wisconsin, hosted a talk by South African Sonia Hruska. Hruska, who now lives in the United States, discussed the ongoing genocide against white people in her country under the largely communist-controlled ANC government of Jacob Zuma.
Born in Victoria, South Africa, to a nontraditional Afrikaner family, with a right-wing father and a left-wing mother, Hruska would go on to work in politics as a consultant in the presidential administration of Nelson Mandela from 1994 to 2001. “I was the coordinator between the different spheres of government, civil society and state organizations, to actually implement the new government policies,” Hruska said.
As an early supporter of Mandela and the dream of a rainbow South Africa, Hruska truly believed in establishing a country where, regardless of the color of one’s skin or…

We (Genocide Watch) are encouraging governments like Australia and the US to adopt liberal asylum policies for South African whites so they can leave South Africa.
Breaking News: Greg Stanton of Genocide Watch urges Afrikaners to flee SA!
Email from Dr Gregory Stanton Oct 6 2012 to Afrikaans campaigner/singer Sunette Bridges warns Afrikaners to flee:
To: Sunette Bridges
From: Greg Stanton
“As you know, Genocide Watch has already raised the Genocide Stage level for South Africa to Stage 6 because we now have evidence that the murders of Afrikaaner farmers and other whites is organized by racist communists determined to drive whites out of South Africa, nationalize farms and mines, and bring on all the horrors of a communist state. Marxism-Leninism is not yet the official ideology of the ANC government, as it is in ZANU-PF in Zimbabwe, but ANC policy will take a further step in that direction at…

Looking around for traces of Afrikanerdom in Dutch society I stumbled upon an interesting trend in Dutch cities. Quite a number of them have a neighbourhood that carry Afrikaner street-names and are generally called Transvaalbuurt/Transvaalkwartier. It’s rather amusing to find a Paul Kruger Street in Amsterdam, and even a Spionkopstraat in Haarlem, but when you look at the history and support given to the Boere during the Second Boer War, it becomes more understandable.
After the annexing of the Cape Colony by the British, there were already some blistered feelings between the Dutch and British. This was also just after the rise of Napoleon, with the Netherlands under control of France. The general discontent with British rule in the Cape was felt by both the Dutch and the Afrikaner who, through a great exodus called the Groot Trek, eventually established the independent Afrikaner Republics of the Transvaal, the…

Wat is Asetrou / Heidenisme in elk geval? Is ‘n Heiden nie ‘n goddelose barbaar nie?
Heiden, beteken nie “goddeloos” soos was ons ou onderwysers altyd vir ons geleer het nie, en is afkomstig van die ou Engelse term hæðen – beteken “’n nie-Christelike/Joodse mens”. Histories was die term beïnvloed deur die Gotiese haiþi; “wonend op heinde en verre”. Dit word ook voorgestel dat die Gotiese haiþi nie total verwant is aan “heide” nie, maar eerder ‘n leenwoord is van die Armeense hethanos, self afkomstig uit die Griekse; ἔθνος (ethnos). Ongelukkig is die betekenis so verdraai en oorgedra om oor die algemeen ge-interpriteer te word as ‘n “goddelose barbaar”.
Asatru (letterlik “geloof in die gode”) of te wel; Asetrou is ‘n moderne herlewing van die geloof wat die Germaanse stamme van Noord-en Sentraal-Europa beoefen het. Die geloofstelsel wat hul beoefen het voordat hulle gedwonge tot die Christendom bekeer het.
Ons gebruik die woord “heiden” met die doel om ons te onderskei van meer hoofstroom “pagans” wat op die New Age trein gespring het. As heidene fokus ons meer op die historiese werklikheid as op ‘n moderne fantasie waaraan ander “pagan” gelowe vasklou. Die terme, Asatru / Odinisme/ Wotanisme / Forn Sidh / Germanische Heidentum – is almal intrinsiek verskillend, maar vir die doel van hierdie berug, deel hul genoeg ooreenkomste met mekaar om saam onder een dekmantel bespreek te word.
