South Africa’s callous leaders put money before murder

Following on from my previous posts on the subject, here and here

Of all the comments that have followed the murder of Eugene Terreblanche, one stands out above all others for its utter ignorance and callousness.  It was made in a statement by the ANC government’s ruling partner, the South African Communist Party (SACP).  The SACP has chosen to use the killing to highlight problems faced by farm workers:

“If the allegation that Terre’Blanche’s murder arose out of a wage dispute is true, it calls upon all of us, especially government, to strengthen the effective regulation and the labour inspectorate on farms.”

So for the SACP, the most serious issue here is the need for regulation of farms, not the slaughter of South Africans.  This is not even moral equivalence.  It is obscene, cold blooded, calculated indifference to the atrocity that is the taking of human life.  How can any sane person choose to turn a blind eye to the campaign of racially motivated violence that has resulted in the deaths of over 3,000 people?

As the death toll continues to rise, South Africa’s ANC government and its government partners in the South African Communist Party continue to ignore racist violence because the victims are white.  Were this any other country the international outcry would be deafening.  However the only thing that is deafening is the silence.
