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

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."
