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.

Baghdad Bombings Could Give Biden Administration Excuse to Increase US Presence in Iraq
The first major Baghdad bombings in three years happen on Joe Biden’s first full day as president.
Two suicide bombings rocked a marketplace in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 32 people and wounding over 100. As of now no one has claimed responsibility, although Iraqi military leaders suspect the Islamic State, the paramilitary group often referred to as “ISIS” in years past.
Major General Tahsin al-Khafaji said that the first suicide bomber shouted in the marketplace that he was not feeling well, and when a group of people drew near him, he detonated an explosive belt he was wearing. Not long after that, a second suicide bomber then detonated his own belt several feet away.
This was Baghdad’s first major bombing in three years, and interestingly enough it came on the first full day of Joe Biden’s presidency. Even the Associated Press pointed out that “many questioned the timing of the attack.”
“The US-led coalition recently ceased combat activities and is gradually drawing down its troop presence in Iraq,” the article reads.
The Jerusalem Post also writes that the bombings provide Biden with “an early opportunity to show US support for Iraq.”
“Biden has said that the US is ‘back’ and the world can expect the US to care again about foreign policy and work multilaterally to solve problems,” said the Post.
All this leads many to believe that the Biden administration will once again increase the US presence in Iraq, thereby dragging us deeper into a situation that the Trump administration had been eager to get out of.
This is not the first time that a Middle Eastern tragedy has coincided with a change of power. In March of 2017, two months after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Assad government in Syria allegedly used chemical weapons against its own people, leading to international outcry and the Trump administration’s unilateral decision to launch an April 7 missile strike on the Syrian government’s Shayrat Airbase.
Bombings and attacks have also been known to happen shortly after the US announces commitments to scale back military operations.
Perhaps groups like the Islamic State feel emboldened by such announcements and power changes. In any case, the military-industrial complex often uses such attacks to justify never-ending involvement in the Middle East. As of now, however, it still remains to be seen what they will do as a result of Thursday’s bombings, if anything. Fingers crossed that it’s not much.
