White Farmers’ Land Will Be Seized in South Africa Without Compensation

What happened?

South Africa’s parliament voted last week to take land from white farmers and not pay them compensation.

“We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land,” Economic Freedom Fighters party leader Julius Malema said.

Because this has gone so well before …

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who took office in mid-February, has vowed to speed up the seizure of land from white owners.

“This original sin that was committed when our country was colonized must be resolved in a way that will take South Africa forward,” he said.

Ramaphosa has said the land must be be transferred in a way that doesn’t disrupt food production or encourage violence. In the past, redistributing land hasn’t gone so smoothly. Zimbabwe’s land transfers resulted in increased violence and neglected farms that didn’t produce food.

What else should I know?

There’s a petition circulating that asks President Donald Trump to bring white people evicted from their own land in South Africa to the U.S. That’ll go over well.

Glenn’s take:

Obviously, this is a bad idea that we’ve already seen played out in Zimbabwe. But Trump taking in the white farmers would only create more problems.

“It’s not good,” Glenn summed it up.

GLENN: Hey, have you heard what's happening in South Africa?

STU: No, I'm an American citizen, so no, I have not.

GLENN: Yeah, most people haven't heard. The new president has just said, the time for reconciliation is over.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: And we're going to confiscate all property from white people.

STU: Now, that's worked out well when it's been attempted in the past.

GLENN: Well, no. They it did in Zimbabwe, where they took all the white farmers -- and everybody starved to death.

STU: Yeah, that was an issue. A minor concern.

GLENN: But this time -- this time, the president of South Africa has said, we're going to do it without the food storage problem.

STU: Oh, that was the big problem with Zimbabwe. Because they came out right off the bat and were like, we want food storages because of the result of this.

GLENN: Right. Right.

STU: They're going to push the other way?

GLENN: No, they're going to push the other way. So that will be good.

STU: That's an interesting twist on the policy.

GLENN: And the time for reconciliation is over. Not talking about that. Nobody is even -- really? The most successful, stable country in all of Africa.

STU: Yeah. The continent all chases South Africa. If they start going that way --

GLENN: Yeah, it's not going to be good. It's not going to be good. It's not going to be good.

And there's now a petition for Donald Trump to let the Afrikaaners HEP into America because they're losing -- they have no place to go. They're losing all their property, all their wealth, everything.

It could be a full-fledged race war. And can you imagine? Donald Trump. Eh, no to Somalia, yes to the white guys in Africa. I mean, that's just not going to --

STU: Just to piss off Chris Cuomo, it may be worth doing. But can you imagine what CNN would do if that actually happened?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. It's not good. It's really not good. So we got that going for us.

Hey, I was thinking a lot about the whole, you know what the problem is, guns. I was thinking about that this weekend. And I'm reading a book on personal responsibility.

And it got me to thinking, maybe -- hear me out. Maybe guns are not the problem.

STU: It's time we do something, Glenn. This same old argument. This same old position.

GLENN: I certainly was remember. Could you just write -- I want you to literally write that down. We must do something. Because that's going to take on a whole new context in the next 15 minutes. And we'll go there next

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

The Journalist Who Schooled Brian Stelter on Woke Media | Batya Ungar-Sargon | Ep 125

Wokeness has taken over the American Left — or at least the elite — and the corporate media is leading the charge. But the Left's "Great Awokening" is actually fueling a great awakening of average liberals, this week's guest included. Newsweek deputy opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon joins Glenn after taking CNN's Brian Stelter to school about wokeness — on HIS OWN show. She reviews the biggest takeaways from her new book, "Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy," including how journalists have abandoned the working class, how she overcame Trump Derangement Syndrome, why the Left hates conservative media, and why there's much more that unites us than divides us.
