June 2015 Edition.

SPRINGBOK CYBER NEWSLETTER

June 2015 edition

In 1973 an apocalyptic novel was published in France entitled The Camp of Saints, written by Jean Raspail. The basic synopsis of this novel centred upon a mass co-ordinated invasion of France, and indeed Europe as a whole, by millions of third world minions. This novel was widely criticized at the time as being unrealistic and unbelievable – but now, some forty years later, it is coming true, as masses of poverty-stricken Africans and Arabs attempt to cross the Mediterranean in order to encamp themselves in Europe!

Make no bones about it, these “boat people” are not refugees – they are invaders. Just because they don’t carry weapons doesn’t mean to say that their aim isn’t the same as that of previous Islamic invaders of Europe, such as the Moors and the Ottomans. Their aim is to conquer and supplant the indigenous population of Europe, and to impose their own repressive religion upon the continent.

Recently we read a most devastating article in a publication entitled Vanishing England (No.10 – 20.2.2015) which revealed that the current “boat people” migration across the Mediterranean was all part of a deliberate plan by the Islamic Caliphate not only to invade Europe, but more specifically to seize Rome. Ever since an earlier Caliphate seized Constantinople in 1453, the article went on to illustrate, it has been the aim of Muslims to capture that other leading Christian city of Europe – Rome. The current Caliph, Abu-Bakr Al-Baghdadi (the spiritual head of ISIS/ISIL in northern Syria and Iraq) is furthermore on record as stating on 13th November 2014 “The Jihadists will continue their advance until, by God’s will, they reach Rome” [English translation from original Arabic]. Now of course we know that most of our readers will not have much time for the theological position and global power of the Vatican, but it must be accepted that their hierarchy is basically European, and they are therefore infinitely preferable to any Arabic Muslim theocrats who aim to take their place.

Perhaps the most frightening aspect in the storyline of The Camp of Saints was the manner in which so many indigenous Europeans not only passively accepted the third world invasion of their homelands, but in many cases even positively welcomed them! Again we see sickening parallels taking place in real-life today. Instead of immediately transporting all the “boat people” rescued from the Mediterranean back to the countries from which they embarked (Libya, and to a lesser extent Syria), the Italian and other EU authorities incredibly transport them on to the lands which they intended to reach, and unbelievably allow them to stay there! But the extent of assistance given to the Islamic invasion by the liberal/leftist forces in Europe actually goes even further than this. The demonstrations organized by the liberal/leftist “rent-a-mobs” against Western interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya have intimidated Western leaders into withdrawing from Iraq and Afghanistan far too early, not taking any necessary military action in Syria, and not putting any “boots on the ground” in Libya following the overthrow of an earlier would-be Caliph – Gadaffi. Had Western leaders not bowed to the self-hating demands of the liberal/left protestors then it follows that, with Western forces in control, there would not have been any power-vacuum in Iraq, Syria and Libya, and thereby no opportunity for the “boat people” to launch their invasion ventures from these countries.

Alas however it is not only the overt liberals and leftists who have been guilty of complicity with the invasion. Many self-styled right-wing and/or patriotic leaders – most notably Mr. Nigel Farage, the current leader of UKIP (as we pointed out in the May edition of the SCN) - have openly sided with the “rent-a-mob” pro-Islamic fellow-travellers by criticizing the limited Western intervention in Libya and opposing similar military action in Syria. Such incredible stances adopted by so-called anti-immigration leaders have been at best so na├»ve that the proponents forfeit all right to be taken seriously, or else they demonstrate a hypocrisy which is beyond belief. Needless to say, we view such hypocritical pseudo-patriots with even more contempt than we view the more obvious liberal/left!

But what needs to be done to stop the Islamic invasion and to defeat the Caliphate’s aim of conquering Europe? First defence spending in all Western countries must immediately be increased substantially, and then Western forces (and by Western we include Russia) must be swiftly and effectively deployed in the countries most implicated (Syria, Iraq and Libya) to seek out and destroy ISIS/ISIL, and then to occupy the coastal and border areas in order to prevent any further migration attempts into Europe. Once these military aims have been accomplished then a second wave of intervention from the great European nation-states must be enacted, but this time in the form of new colonial administrators who can re-establish order and good governance. Once this has been done then it should be relatively easy to repatriate all non-Europeans currently living on the European continent back to their lands of ethnic origin. Finance to accomplish these aims could come in part by abolishing all overseas aid budgets – after all eradicating the causes of poverty and establishing effective and non-corrupt administration is surely the best form of foreign aid which we can possibly give to the ordinary citizens of these third world countries!

SPRINGBOK CLUB NEWS

The Springbok Club proved that it was fully back on the road again after the difficulties of earlier this year by staging a successful and most enjoyable trip to Southend-on-Sea last month, where inter alia they were able to view an art exhibition being staged by Mr. Roger Alsop at the town’s central library.

----------------------------

The Springbok Club aims to give its full support to New Britain’s forthcoming Canada Day event (see New Britain News column) in order to show its commitment to Commonwealth solidarity. In July the Springbok Club will be holding its annual Rhodes and Founders celebration meeting which will feature a most interesting guest speaker, and in August the organization will be welcoming a highly respected visiting guest speaker from South Africa. In September the Springbok Club has again been invited to participate in the annual “Raising of the Flag” ceremony in Norfolk, and the Kent Branch of the organization is aiming to hold an informal braai later during the year.

------------------------------------------------------------------

SWINTON CIRCLE NEWS

The Swinton Circle’s Spring Buffet held last month proved a great success. It was good to see a number of old faces present again for the first time for several years, as well as the presence of several new supporters. The guest speaker, Mr. John Petley, gave a highly enthralling speech in which as well as recounting some of his experiences whilst working for three years at the EU Parliament in Brussels, also told something of his opinions about the current state of the Withdrawalist movement (a term which he prefers to EuroSceptic) in the UK today. In spite of all the problems currently engulfing UKIP he was optimistic about the eventual triumph of the Withdrawalist movement as a whole, but warned everyone about the potential problems which could be encountered during the forthcoming In/Out Referendum campaign, though he also explained how he thought these could be overcome. The new venue used for this function turned out to be first-class, and the standard of buffet snacks provided proved to be superlative.

----------------------------

In order to mark the forthcoming United Kingdom Day the Swinton Circle has decided to make its June meeting an early United Kingdom Day event – and the theme couldn’t be more appropriate! The details are as follows :-

Date : Thursday 18th June 2015

Time : 18.30 hrs for 19.00 hrs.

Venue : The MORPETH ARMS (the upstairs “Spying Room”), 58 Millbank, London SW1P 4RW. (Nearest tube station: Pimlico)

Guest Speaker : Mr. JAMES LOCKWOOD LL.B., A.K.C.

- who will be speaking about the life and career of Lord Carson (Sir Edward Carson).

James Lockwood was born at Pembury and raised at Tunbridge Wells in Kent. He read Law at King's College, London. After graduating he worked for almost a decade as a civilian investigator with Kent Police, and then for Kent County Council managing aspects of the road network. He is currently working in recruitment. He was initiated into the Orange Order in February 2004, the Royal Black Institution in 2006 and the Apprentice Boys of Derry in 2004. He is a member of the Royal Society of St George and of UKIP. He was a former council candidate for the Conservative Party, and a former chairman of the Young Conservatives in the Cities of London & Westminster Conservative Association. Currently he is London District Secretary for the Orange Order and South of England Deputy Master for the Royal Black Institution, and is also Kent Branch Club Secretary for the Apprentice Boys of Derry. His main interests are Badminton, Cricket, history, politics, genealogy, classical music and creative writing. Through the Orange Order he developed a keen interest in Lord Carson, regarded as the Father of Northern Ireland, and appeared on the BBC’s Mastermind quiz programme in 2013, with the life of Lord Carson being his specialist subject.

In his talk James Lockwood will tell something about the life and career of Lord Carson, looking at his personality, ancestry, and interesting points of his legal career, the Home Rule v Unionist struggle (particularly in the 1892-1914 period), the Ulster Crisis, the Constitutional Settlements proposed around 1919 (including one to federalise the whole UK), and the fate of the Stormont settlement. He will also be telling a little about his Mastermind experience!

WORLD CUP WILLIES REVISITED

In the run-up to the 2010 Soccer World Cup we ran a series of monthly items entitled “World Cup Willies”, which demonstrated why we thought that the “new” South Africa was totally unsuited to stage one of the world’s premier sporting tournaments. We reported on the incomplete infrastructure for this tournament, the labour strikes which were causing massive disruptions, the traffic chaos causing an escalating number of accidents, the fact that far fewer overseas supporters would be attending than were originally expected, the breakdown of law and order in other parts of he country as all Police manpower was concentrated in the cities where matches were to be played, and the assaults, robberies and murders – yes murders – which were experienced by visiting players, officials and supporters.

We thought that in view of all these appalling problems resulting from this ill-judged tournament which were apparent at the time that nothing even more damning could ever come to light – but we were wrong! The recent exposure of chronic corruption within FIFA at the highest levels has revealed that the South African FA (or certain officials therein) arranged for a bribe of US$10 Million to be paid to certain national FIFA representatives, particularly those from CONCACAF, to vote for South Africa to stage the 2010 World Cup. In other words South Africa only ever became host of the 2010 tournament through bribery and corruption.

In view of both the disasters surrounding the staging of the 2010 Soccer World Cup and the subsequent revelations about the bribery and corruption which ensured that it was held in the “new” South Africa, we trust that never again will a major global sporting event be staged in this totally unfit country – and that applies especially to the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

LATEST REPORT FROM THE ZIMBABWE CONSERVATION TASK FORCE

We have recently received the following important report from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force :-

“With regard to the baby elephants which have been captured in Hwange National Park for intended export to China, we would appeal to the Zimbabwean government to do the right thing and release these elephants into a rehabilitation sanctuary so that they can be released back into the wild. This would prove to the world that Zimbabwe is serious about conservation. We are asking this on behalf of thousands of animal lovers around the world.

“In addition to this, Zimbabwe would earn a lot of respect if the stock pile of 72 tons of elephant tusks and 5 tons of rhino horn were incinerated in a public area in front of conservationists and wildlife enthusiasts. This is what Malawi, Kenya and Ethiopia have done. All the wildlife ambassadors around the world should be invited to watch this and that will have a huge impact on Zimbabwe's reputation as true leaders in the conservation world.

“The local people living around the National Parks and wildlife areas would benefit from this. They could be employed by National Parks to run anti-poaching patrols and they could receive a percentage of the money earned by tourism. This would greatly help the unemployment problem in Zimbabwe. If these people are earning money by keeping the animals alive, they would not be so keen to kill them. There would be massive benefits for a number of industries. The local people could sell their beautiful art works and sculptures and they could even start safari businesses, allowing foreign visitors to see how they live. The hotels, restaurants, transport companies and airlines would also benefit from an influx of tourists.

“With regard to elephants destroying people's crops, there are ways of preventing that chilli plants could be planted around the perimeter of the crops and that would discourage elephants from going in and eating the crops.”

The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force relies solely on public donations. Any donation can help to preserve the wildlife in Zimbabwe. If you would like to assist please contact the ZCTF at: galorand@mweb.co.zw

LATEST NEWS CONCERNING CLIVE DERBY-LEWIS

We have recently heard the rumour that a South African court has ruled that Clive Derby-Lewis must be released on bail, but that the powers-that-be had been given until Friday 5th June to present arguments in opposition to this ruling. In spite of the fact that this date has now passed we have alas heard nothing further to confirm or refute that he has now actually been released. The latest report which we have received from his wife Gaye reads as follows however :-

“You have probably all heard that Clive’s application for Medical Parole was refused by the Minister of Correctional Services. Since he was convicted and sentenced to death in 1993, I’m afraid we’ve not won a single battle within this country’s so-called justice system.

“He was refused amnesty in the late nineties on the most spurious of grounds, while they gave amnesty to every Tom, Dick and Harry. I collected information on who they gave amnesty to, and it makes laughable reading! The chairman of Clive’s amnesty committee of five was a dyed in the wool communist, so impartiality was out of the question. In any event, after the 1993 Hani incident, more than 30 top ANC/SACP’s, liberals and a few NP’s including de Klerk declared publicly that Clive would ‘never get out’, and they have stuck to their guns. They are in power and they can use the system the way they want.

“To cut a long story short, Clive was eligible for parole, to be released in October 2008. The Parole Board recommended this parole, but the minister refused it. It was refused three times after that, each time the minister (either a communist or an ANC bigwig) used and manipulated the law to suit his political agenda. Anyone who really knows South Africa will know how easily this can be done – look at how Zuma gets away with not being tried for the 683 charges of fraud about which he’s supposed to appear in court. The National Prosecuting Authority is compromised, as we all know.

“Clive was stabbed twice in jail. Glass from one of the stabbings is still in his lung and it cannot be operated upon. As well, he nearly lost his leg with a gangrene that developed because there was no medical attention in jail. He was also diagnosed with cancer – lung cancer and prostate cancer - and heart failure, high blood pressure and hypertension .

“He is receiving chemo and radiation. He is bearing up well.

“The Medical Parole Advisory Board, a board setup by the Department of Correctional Services and consisting of seventeen independent doctors and specialists, recommended to the minister that Clive be released on medical parole. The minister completely ignored the advice of his own Medical Experts. He is not a medical doctor.

“The minister refused medical parole on three grounds which I won’t go into here. Let it be said they were all spurious. I can’t tell you in detail because it actually makes me physically ill to go through all of this again. But each reason was a reason thrown into the pot to give the minister an excuse to refuse and of course to keep Clive in jail longer. However laughable the reasons for refusal, the onus was thus upon us to take this ridiculous decision to court which takes thousands of Rands and a lot of time and effort.

We get the affidavit and annexures together with the guidance of our advocate and attorney. This documentation consists of thousands of pages, multiplied by eight to give copies to all the “interested parties” which include the SA Communist Party. We ask the court to review the minister’s decision. The minister’s mala fides, bias and vindictiveness were so bad that we had to ask the court to make the decision, not go back to the minister. I can’t possibly say in this email what I think of the whole bloody lot of them – suffice it to say they are a curse on this country, a plague which this country will never get rid of. We warned the people time and time again, but nobody was listening.

“I’m sending this to you with a heavy heart. I’m fed up with the whole mess and the weakness of the whites. Who would have thought they’d let go so easily?

“Anyway, I’ll keep you posted. We hope things will take a turn for the better when our urgent application comes before a judge. But then we ask: what judge? He’s been before the judges before!”

"P.K. VAN DER BYL - AFRICAN STATESMAN" by Hannes Wessels

ISBN: 978-1-920143-49-7 / paperback / illustrated
Retail price: R250.00, Web-site price: R200.00 + postage

The narrative gives the reader an overview of the history of the White man in southern Africa with detailed emphasis on the Rhodesian story through the life and times of PK van der Byl, one of the major players in a political drama that ended in the accession to power of Robert Mugabe under the auspices of the British government. By his very nature PK was controversial and confrontational. This account is likely to give offence to some because it portrays him as bluntly as he was in real life. Much can be contested about PK van der Byl but few will dispute he was an extremely colourful character with a devilish sense of humour. This memoir covers his life with a full flourish while doing nothing to detract from the seriousness of the international political and military conflict in which he was engaged. The reader will glean new information on a highly controversial subject and emerge with a more sympathetic understanding of what PK van der Byl and his colleagues did and strove for. The human tragedy that has followed the removal from power of Ian Smith and his Rhodesian Front party will almost certainly force the reader to deal with some uncomfortable conclusions, of value to anyone sincere about grappling with the volatile and deeply troubling challenges that confront all Africans today.

This book and others of interest can be purchased from 30 Degrees South via their web-site: www.30degreessouth.co.za

WHERE ARE THEY NOW ?

No.199 – Mr. RICKY ALLAN of Durban.

Ricky Allan was a stalwart of the Durban Branch of the Rangers F.C. Supporters Association, and the father of John Allan who played international Rugby Union as hooker both for Scotland and for South Africa. As was mentioned in the February 2014 edition of the SCN, however, he was also the grandfather of Tommaso Allan (the son of Ricky’s younger son William “Billy” Allan) who has recently played at fly-half for Italy. Although Ricky Allan lived in Durban during the 1980s he hailed from Glasgow, but as his son John subsequently played for Edinburgh Academicals and his son Billy has evidently settled in Italy, it would be very interesting to learn where Ricky himself is living now.

RECOMMENDED WEB-SITE OF THE MONTH

As mentioned in the Springbok Club section, the organization staged a trip to Southend-on-Sea last month, where members and supporters visited an art exhibition featuring some of the paintings of Roger Alsop. This proved a most enjoyable day out, and Roger Alsop’s pictures were very impressive. He has his own web-site where a number of his works are displayed, and this can be accessed at :-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

PUTTING IT IN BLACK AND WHITE

Sir,

Thanks for this insightful, well-written newsletter [the March edition of the SCN – Ed.].

I’d love to respond to quite a few points raised here, but will confine my response to one only. You postulated :-

“We honestly can’t make out why it is only these farm murders which receive so much attention, when quite clearly a far greater number of these genocidal atrocities take place in urban inner-city areas.”

Most farmers are Afrikaners, of which a significant minority are of White English ancestry especially in Natal. Most inner city victims are Whites of English or Afrikaner ethnicity. It seems in today’s twisted, contorted world of political correctness it’s permissible to call attention to the persecution of a particular ethnicity (Afrikaners) but absolutely verboten to point out that a member of the WHITE race is victim to Black genocidal racism.

The liberal leftist narrative one is strictly forbidden from deviating is thus: White = bad, Black = good. The mortal sins of racism and bigotry are the exclusive domain of Whites. Victimhood of the aforesaid is thus exclusively non-White. Ergo, Blacks cannot be guilty of racism and Whites cannot be victim to it. Should a White person dare to point out Black malfeasance, he is automatically guilty of racism as any attempt to do so is automatically “borne from a subconscious desire to make Blacks look bad”.

On the flipside, the United Nations have various sub-organisations which promote and protect the rights of ethnic minorities, as long as such ethnicities are identified through language, cultural heritage and geographical considerations. As such, you will find many veteran activists such as the Dutch-based Adriana Stuijt or local Dr Dan Roodt of PRAAG beating the ethnic drum but fearfully shying away from the racial one.

It’s abundantly clear that South African Whites of all ethnicities are being victimised especially due to their skin colour. The vast majority of Black on White crimes can be categorised as racist hate crimes, due to the excessive violence and extreme torture employed, the manner in which victims are identified and subsequently persecuted. In more than 90% of cases, Black perpetrators make no effort to hide their primary motives – they openly use racist hate speech and where entire families are murdered, will routinely daub anti-White slogans on walls using their victim’s blood.

Yours etc.,

“The Uhuru Guru”, Lancashire, U.K.

WE ARE THE SACRIFICE ……

Sir,

I know the Springbok Club is not only concerned with Southern Africa but has, thanks to you, given a right leaning viewpoint on other places of interest to us and those who think like us. I often point out the lack of gumption in White South Africans. At least the Rhodesians put up a valiant struggle, only to be betrayed by Conservative politicians - as was Ulster - and by their White South African cousins, particularly that creep John Vorster.

Yours etc.,

“Loyalist”, Glasgow, U.K..

FICTION WRITER

Sir,

I was angry to read the letter entitled “Angels and Demons” from a Mr. Dan Brown [May SCN – Ed.] which contained one misleading lie and another offensive implication concerning the actions of British forces during the Anglo-Boer War.

1) Kitchener did NOT establish “concentration camps” in South Africa. Concentration camps were established by the Nazis in Germany and eastern Europe prior to and during the Second World War in order exterminate Jews, Gypsies and other minorities. Kitchener established DETENTION camps in South Africa, and only AFTER the war was effectively over following the capture of Pretoria in June 1900. They were established in order to DETAIN the families of the Boer “bitter-enders” who refused to accept that they had lost the war and wished to prolong the pain and suffering on both sides by adopting “hit and run” guerilla tactics, retreating to their farmsteads after each isolated attack on British troops where their families provided food and protection for them. To compare the totally justifiable military tactic of establishing DETENTION camps in order to end hostilities as early as possible with the evil CONCENTRATION camps of the Nazis is a monstrous lie!

2) The implication that “28,000 Boers …perished” in the detention camps as deliberate acts of murder is an outrageous and unsubstantiated smear! Hygiene knowledge and standards at the end of the 19th century were nowhere near as advanced as they became even 50 years later. Diseases broke out in the camps and thousands (British troops as well as detainees!) died as a result of the lack of effective hygiene standards – NOT as deliberate acts of murder!

After the Treaty of Vereeniging of 1902 the vast majority of Afrikaners accepted the most generous peace terms which they were offered – particularly those great Afrikaner leaders Louis Botha and Jan Smuts. As a result the great success story which was the Union of South Africa came into being in 1910 which lasted for the next increasingly happy and prosperous 50 years, during which time Afrikaners and British-South Africans mainly lived side by side as brothers in a united land. It was only after the National Party government started to kow-tow to the ANC terrorists that the almost century-old and otherwise forgotten animosities were re-activated, mainly through the NP-controlled SABC and its joke AWB puppet organization. By trying to revive this animosity himself Mr. Brown is only playing the ANC’s game of further dividing White man from White man.

Yours etc.,

“South African Observer”, Durban, Natal, South Africa

[ This letter reflects the views of several other communications which we have received criticizing Mr.Dan Brown’s comments, and indeed criticizing us for publishing them. Mr.Brown himself remains an enigma to us however. He first made contact in November of last year stating that he wished to become involved with the Lancashire Branch of the Springbok Club and furthermore wished to make a donation (which significantly never materialized). After placing him on the SCN circulation list we received a most unexpected e-mail from him containing the controversial comments which have caused so much criticism, which we decided to publish in the interests of free speech. Almost immediately after publishing them, however, we received a further e-mail from him asking to “unsubscribe” from the SCN. His motivation and agenda remains a complete mystery to us therefore. Does anyone know any more about him? – Ed.]

------------------------------------------------------------------

ROGUES GALLERY

We have recently learnt from a reliable source that the notorious Arthur Kemp (see SCNs passim) has relocated to Montana in the United States. We note also that his blogspot now hasn’t been updated for 11 months, so it would seem therefore that his public and political life is at an end.

It is however not our intention to warn the people of Montana about the odious nature of the liar, traitor, devious double-agent, betrayer of friends and circulator of fake pornographic images, as we hope that he will never again return to either South Africa or the UK to cause any more trouble, but will simply end his miserable life in rural Rocky Mountain obscurity.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, if you would prefer to be deleted from our SCN circulation list then simply e-mail us with the word "unsubscribe". Alternatively, if you liked this SCN and think more of your friends would like to receive copies then please let us know their e-mail addresses!

See you again next month!
