Tucker Carlson: A Warning From South Africa

Editor’s Note: This was circulating on White Nationalist websites like Stormfront 15 to 20 years ago. It took me a while to dig it up.

By Gemma Meyer

People used to say that South Africa was 20 years behind the rest of the Western world. Television, for example, came late to South Africa (but so did pornography and the gay rights movement).

Today, however, South Africa may be the grim model of the future Western world, for events in America reveal trends chillingly similar to those that destroyed our country.

America’s structures are Western. Your Congress, your lobbying groups, your free speech, and the way ordinary Americans either get involved or ignore politics are peculiarly Western, not the way most of the world operates. But the fact that only about a third of Americans deem it important to vote is horrifying in light of how close you are to losing your Western character.

Writing letters to the press, manning stands at county fairs, hosting fund-raising dinners, attending rallies, setting up conferences, writing your Congressmen – that is what you know, and what you are comfortable with. Those are the political methods you’ve created for yourselves to keep your country on track and to ensure political accountability.

But woe to you if – or more likely, when – the rules change. White Americans may soon find themselves unable or unwilling to stand up to challenge the new political methods that will be the inevitable result of the ethnic metamorphosis now taking place in America. Unable to cope with the new rules of the game – violence, mob riots, intimidation through accusations of racism, demands for proportionality based on racial numbers, and all the other social and political weapons used by the have-nots to bludgeon treasure and power from the haves – Americans, like others before them, will no doubt cave in. They will compromise away their independence and ultimately their way of life.

That is, exactly what happened in South Africa. I know, because I was there and I saw it happen.

Faced with revolution in the streets, strikes, civil unrest and the sheer terror and murder practiced by Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress (ANC), the white government simply capitulated in order to achieve peace.

Westerners need peace. They need order and stability. They are builders and planners. But what we got was the peace of the grave for our society.

The Third World is different – different peoples with different pasts and different cultures. Yet Westerners continue to mistake the psychology of the Third World and its peoples. Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe are perfect examples of those mistakes. Sierra Leone is in perpetual civil war, and Zimbabwe – once the thriving, stable Rhodesia – is looting the very people (the white men) who feed the country. Yet Westerners do not admit that the same kind of savagery could come to America when enough immigrants of the right type assert themselves. The fact is, Americans are sitting ducks for Third World exploitation of the Western conscience of compassion.

Those in the West who forced South Africa to surrender to the ANC and its leaders did not consider Africa to be the dangerous, corrupt, and savage place it is now in Zimbabwe and South Africa. Those Western politicians now have a similar problem looming on their own doorsteps: the demand for power and treasure from the non-Western peoples inside the realm.

It is already too late for South Africa, but not for Americans if enough people strengthen their spine and take on the race terrorists, the armies of the politically correct and, most dangerous of all, the craven politicians who believe compassionate conservatism will buy them a few more votes, a few more days of peace.

White South Africans, you should remember, have been in that part of Africa for the same amount of time whites have inhabited North America; yet ultimately South Africans voted for their very own suicide. We are not so very different from you.

We lost our country through skillful propaganda, pressure from abroad (not least from the U.S.A.) unrelenting charges of oppression and racism, and the shrewd assessment by African tyrants that the white man has many Achilles heels, the most significant of which are his compassion, his belief in the equality of man, and his love your neighbor philosophy – none of which are part of Third World’s history.

The mainline churches played a big role in the demise of Western influence throughout Africa, too; especially in South Africa. Today’s tyrants were yesterday’s mission-school proteges. Many dictators in Africa were men of the cloth. They knew their clerical collars would deflect criticism and obfuscate their real aims, which had nothing whatever to do with the brotherhood of man.

Other tyrants, like the infamous Idi Amin, were trained and schooled by the whites themselves, at Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard. After receiving the best from the West, they unleashed a resentful bloodlust against their benefactors.

From what I have seen and read thus far, I fear Americans will capitulate just as we did. Americans are, generally, a soft lot. They don’t want to quarrel or obstruct the claims of those who believe they were wronged. They like peace and quiet, and they want to compromise and be nice.

A television program that aired in South Africa showed a town meeting somewhere in Southern California where people met to complain about falling standards in the schools. Whites who politely spoke at the meeting clearly resented the influx of Mexican immigrants into their community. When a handful of Chicanos at the back hall shouted and waved their hands at them, the whites simply shrunk back into their seats rather than tell the noisemakers to shut up. They didn’t want to quarrel.

In America, the courts are still the final arbiters of society’s laws. But what will happen when your future majority refuses to abide by court rulings – as in Zimbabwe. What will happen when the new majority says the judges are racists, and that they refuse to acknowledge white man’s justice? What will happen when the courts are filled with their people, or their sympathizers? In California, Proposition 187 has already been overturned.

What will you do when the future non-white majority decides to change the names of streets and cities? What will you do when they no longer want to use money that carries the portraits of old, dead white “racists” and slave owners? Will you cave in, like you did on flying the Confederate flag? What about the national anthem? Your official language?

Don’t laugh. When the “majority” took over in South Africa the first targets were our national symbols.

In another generation, America may well face what Africa is now experiencing – invasions of private land by the “have-nots;” the decline in health care quality; roads and buildings in disrepair; the banishment of your history from the education of the young; the revolutionization of your justice system.

In South Africa today, only 9 percent of murderers end up in jail. Court dockets are regularly purchased and simply disappear. Magistrates can be bribed as can the prison authorities, making escapes commonplace. Vehicle and airplane licenses are regularly purchased, and forged school and university certificates are routine.

What would you think of the ritual slaughter of animals in your neighbor’s backyard? How do you clean up the blood and entrails that litter your suburban streets? How do you feel about the practice of witchcraft, in which the parts of your girls and boys are needed for “medicinal” purposes? Hoe do you react to the burning of witches?

Don’t laugh. All that is quite common in South Africa today.

Don’t imagine that government officials caught with their fingers in the till will be punished. Excuses – like the need to overcome generations of white racism – will be found to exonerate the guilty.

In fact, known criminals will be voted into office because of a racial solidarity among the majority that doesn’t exist among the whites. When Ian Smith of the old Rhodesia tried to stand up to the world, white South African politicians were among the Westerners pressuring him to surrender.

When Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe murders his political opponents, ignores unfavorable court decisions, terrorizes the population and siphons off millions from the state treasury for himself and his friends, South Africa’s new President Thabo Mbeki holds his hand and declares his support. That just happened a few weeks ago.

Your tax dollars will go to those who don’t earn and don’t pay. In South Africa, organizations that used to have access to state funds such as old age homes, the arts, and veteran’s services, are simply abandoned.

What will happen is that Western structures in America will be either destroyed from without, or transformed from within, used to suit the goals of the new rulers. And they will reign either through terror, as in Zimbabwe today, or exert other corrupt pressures to obtain, or buy votes. Once power is in the hands of aliens, don’t expect loyalty or devotion to principle from those whose jobs are at stake. One of the most surprising and tragic components of the disaster in South Africa is how many previously anti-ANC whites simply moved to the other side.

One you lose social, cultural, and political dominance, there is no getting it back again.

Unfortunately, your habits and values work against you. You cannot fight terror and street mobs with letters to your Congressmen. You cannot fight accusations of racism with prayer meetings. You cannot appeal to the goodness of your fellow man when the fellow man despises you for your weakness and hacks off the arms and legs of his political opponents.

To survive, Americans must never lose the power they now enjoy to people from alien cultures. Above all, don’t put yourselves to the test of fighting only when your backs are against the wall. You will probably fail.

Millions around the world want your good life. But make no mistake: They care not for the high-minded ideals of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, and your Constitution. What they want are your possessions, your power, and your status.

And they already know that their allies among you, the human rights activists, the skillful lawyers and the left-wing politicians will fight for them, and not for you. They will exploit your compassion’s and your Christian charity, and your good will.

They have studied you, Mr. and Mrs. America, and they know your weaknesses as well.

They know what to do.

Do you?

  1. Spot ON! We see all this happening before our eyes and the Federal Government is complicit in every way. Thanks for posting this, sharing far and wide…

  2. A sad but important telling of South Africa’s decline. It has always mesmerized me that the Whites of that nation, or at least the Afrikaners, did not serious attempt to secede from the South African union at the end of the apartheid era. At least, I never read anything suggesting that was being discussed at the time.

    An independent Afrikaner republic, an Orania writ large, should not have been so unthinkable. There had briefly been independent Boer republic of course at the end of the nineteenth century. And in Europe the multiethnic nation of Czechoslovakia was also peacefully separating. I suppose the Blacks were opposed to this because they did not want to lose control over the best parts of South Africa.

    • The bitter old joke about South Africa: A South African is a man who would rather be murdered in his bed than make it. It all comes down to money. It’s nice to think that people are motivated by principles but most are motivated by money and comfort. What’s worse is that they think only about short-term money and comfort, they’ll vote for their own destruction in the long term if it guarantees their comfort today. They won’t sacrifice today even if they know they’ll be exterminated tomorrow. And of course the rich people at the top who really call the shots and drive the destruction don’t give a damn about what happens to them or the country as long as their bottom line isn’t disturbed.

  3. Most Americans would not comprehend what Gemma Meyer has written, if they bothered to read it. There is no “voting” your way out of what is coming.

    • Nah. As long as the beer keeps flowing and sportsball games keep playing on the boob tube, the tards will keep feeling it will all work out in the end.

  4. The best scenario I see is the South, and heartland secedes from the liberal states, and after that things will improve. I don’t see this taking back America happening, because of demographics, and the upper middle class liberal Whites and jews will not allow it. So if you get fixated on trying to save the whole thing, you will end up with nothing. If the South does not seceede, then it is all over for America. The only up side of that failure is a brown majority USA will no longer be able to exert its toxic liberal influence on the rest of the world, and living anywhere else will be better.

    White shitlibs and jews are not doing this because they are well meaning. They are tearing down their world and ours, out of narcissm, and hatred. So I will not elevate these people by calling them well meaning. They are evil. And Whites that are neutral but don’t give a damn when we show them proof of what is happening, are self centered sociopaths. Think of your greedy chamber of commerce worshipping liberal Republican. The only noble Whites I see are the nationalists who tried to warn people, and it cost them dearly.

  5. I remember this quite well, and it’s just as right on now as it was then. There is a race war going on and whites won’t even acknowledge it, let alone fight it.

  6. The White S. Africans should be giving priority status to come to the US but they won’t because they’re White and they want to reduce the White population, not increase it. That’s been obvious for decades.

    There’s a parallel between what’s happening in S. Africa and the west on a smaller scale. If not corrected it will be full scale S. Africa.

    • France is there. This has always been about genociding whites. Allowing Jews to control our countries is basically the same as suicide. Thanks Boomers! It might have already been hopeless but you never even tried.

  7. That is the best Tucker Carlson segment i have ever seen. I am embarrassed to say I do not know the guest despite being familiar with South Africa and have a few dozen contacts. It is always disappointing to see them walk up to the line about race realism and speak more mutedly and ambiguous. The more intelligent of us understand it but your average normie programmed by decades of media close their guard

    • The way you do it is to comment under an assumed lefty voice and point out that the blacks will kill all the horrid awful racist wipepo. The shock is what they need. 200 confirmed dead in looting now. As bloody as Rourkes Drift!

      • “As bloody as Rourkes Drift!”

        Bear in mind that the Zulu wars, including the battles of Rorke’s Drift and Islandwana, were fought INSIDE Zulu Land, which is now the northeastern quarter of South Africa.

  8. @ good story, the Satanist/marxist/wokesters ,have strength in the metropolitan areas, why? Local elected officials, have failed their citizenry, law enforcement, has stood down, against the radical element, the Satanist, outside the metro area’s, are dead in the water, red state American, will shut them down, …….. The ” amish”, them selves, demonstrate the , the superiority of the sons of Adam, our adversaries bluff, fear not their darkness, they are the ones that are weak and afraid, if the selfhating whites of the west would leave the ” Afrikaans” alone, they will reconquer, their land, I pray they do so., They bring that war, too red state america, they will meet their end.

  9. A terrific, deadly-accurate piece. Everything she said would happen in ‘Murca has happened or is in the process of happening right now. As the soft White sheep stand just around befuddled & shepherdless.

  10. For decades here in Australia, our leaders could watch from a safe distance the American model unfolding on the nightly news. The civil rights era, shootings, muggings, riots and general division on the surface. The populace saw it as a case study of who NOT to invite in. But did our treacherous leaders learn anything from it? Nupp! They began letting Africans in about twenty years ago……. without asking the public. Sure enough, the same issues are developing here. They couldn’t improve or contribute to their own nation in any positive way………so why the fuck would they for Australia? Any talents they had should have been used to improve their own nations and communities. Instead, they run off to waycist Y man like the useless, gutless wretches they are. The first generation are thankful…….at first, but their Aussie born kids go on to do some useless thing like ‘represent’ us in basketball at the Olympics……..or become SJW’s……..and they’re the more normal ones.
    Our leaders have a history of deporting the manufacturing jobs, but importing the hordes. Not real sure how any of that benefits us.
    The really irritating thing is, the left is trying to prevent WHITE South Africans from arriving, despite their claims to be pro refugee.

    • @Goose Wasn’t it until about 1975, that Australia was “white only” immigration?

      Same deal with Europe. They only had to look at US cities, to see what bringing in Africans, etc., would do.

      • @Pilot,
        The white Australia policy began to be dismantled in the late 60’s I think, with Gough Whitlam dumping it officially in 1973 I think. As a result, huge numbers of Asians, Muslims and Indians began arriving. Africans were not encouraged to come until some twenty years or so later.

        • @Goose Our leaders did learn something. They learned if they bring nonwhites into our nations, they can destroy us.
          Every large to mid US city is full of nonwhites and is beyond dangerous. The cities are run by nonwhite police chiefs, city councils, mayors, and school boards. More and more money is diverted to them, and everything keeps going down.

  11. Using sarcasm is pointless with Yankees. My wife and family are from Illinois and will stare at you with a blank face when making a joke. The NIGGER question is alien to them due to no niggers in their schools. No bullies or beatings on the cheese wagon etc. I don’t know how to wake WHITE people up. BRAD please spread the magical fucking formula for waking European Americans up.

  12. How to save your people who been conquered by their enemies who then played “Absalom” politics to stir up the lowest class people in the region to charm them into becoming their local army to do their bidding and terrorize you and try to drive you off the face of the earth to please their new masters — your despotic degenerate godless eternal enemy.

    The best success story in recent history is the American (named after a slaver) South. The North conquered the South in a four year hot war and imposed strict Reconstruction on them and then sicced the freed Blacks on them to try keep them broken and beaten down while their insect like northern carpetbaggers tried to loot what weatlh they could get out of the South for personal gain. But the South fought back and won the first Reconstruction and had a time of peace (with a lot of poverty and a little prosperity) for about 100 years before our enemies started to attempt a second Reconstruction and now this third is to try to finally finish us off and replace us with 3rd worlders.

    There is only ONE way to deal with these anti-South anti-White invaders who hate our guts and who want to destroy us and take what they can get from us. We all know what that is. Our ancestors showed us the way. We do have a blueprint for success to be used at a coming appropriate time. There is no need to be clueless on what must be done. Enough said.

    Maybe a better title is the “Preservation of the American South”

    Birth of a Nation (1915)

  13. Armed invasion= frog jumps out of boiling water.
    Unarmed ‘peaceful’ gradual invasion= frog slowly boils to death.
    Whether the invasion is peaceful or armed, the end results will be the same.
    You can take a black out of Africa, but you can’t take Africa out of the black. Same applies for EVERY non European group.

  14. The lesson of South Africa is that Whites will not suddenly wake up and become more ethnocentric when they reach minority status. White south Africans are still pinning their hopes on GOP-style conservative grifters. There is no hope for then because they don’t actually want to take their country back.

  15. But muh Yorktown, muh Lexington muh Bunker Hill…all fekking dust in the mouth. 2020 was the Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

  16. Interesting remark from Roets about how Whites in South Africa have become wealthier on average due to starting their own businesses. I heard about a couple of recent examples of this from an old SA friend.

    “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.”
