The mainstream press is once again silent after the president of a socialist South African political party called for the deaths of white people.
“You kill one of us, we kill five white people,” shouted Andile Mngxitama at a Saturday rally where he called for revolution. “We kill their children, we kill their women, we kill their dogs, we kill their cats, we kill anything we find in our way.”
Mngxitama is the president of South Africa’s socialist Black First Land First Party (BFL).
The clip has been pulled from YouTube for violating the company’s terms of service, but British commentator KT Hopkins posted the clip to her Twitter account:
“For every 1 black person we kill 5 white people”

During the clip, Mngxitama also called for 50,000 “soldiers” to sign up and “join the “revolution.”
After facing intense public backlash, BFL and Mngxitama were forced to walk back the statement. According to Lindsay Maasdorp, spokesperson for the BFL, Mngxitama was talking about killing whites in self-defense.
In August, members of South Africa’s radical left Economic Freedom Fighter party were filmed chanting “white men must die.”
Mngxitama’s is another in a series of calls for the deaths of white people in South Africa, which is on the brink of a civil war, that has gone unreported by Western press. In fact, the media has clutched its pearls, claiming that calls for the genocide of whites in South Africa are a white supremacist dog-whistle perpetuated by President Donald J. Trump.
Big League Politics reported:
The mainstream press melted down and devolved into calling President Donald J. Trump a white supremacist after he Tweeted a factual statement about land being seized from white farmers in South Africa.
“I have asked Secretary of State [Mike Pompeo] to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers. ‘South African Government is now seizing land from white farmers,’” he said on Twitter.The reports of the government theft of land from white farmers in South Africa has been widely reported, and confirmed by South African farmers themselves, many of whom have been brutally murdered by blacks in the region.
