Hofmyer south African freedom fighter
#1 As an old school liberal, excited about the new SA, relieved to have a averted a civil war in 1990, I gave the New South Africa the benefit of the doubt. 15 years later it was undoubted: my yes vote was a dagger in the back of whites and Afrikaners. But worse. We had probably sacrificed more lives to this brutal mortality rate than a civil war would have.
I noticed in photos blacks out in protest..is there black Africans that feel whites are being done unjust?
#2 Ironically, very few Blacks arrive when we march against crime, rape and murder rates. They also don't protest mother tongue education. When I protest random name-changes, the opposition are mostly bussed in Blacks with slogans printed on government-issue A4 paper. Blacks have an almost 100 year tradition of marching for materialism disguised as liberty rights.
Genocide watch,has only the Boer on watch, I believe all White Africans should be on Genocide watch, why after 70,000 white deaths the media ignores?
#3 The Naspers (National Afrikaans Press) is doing what paralysed liberals do: they live in denial. Any admission to the problem is an admission to the failure of the sides they chose in the 90s. Unfortunately Afrikaners (as the 3rd most spoken language) only have ONE national newspaper and radio station. Compare this to the multitude of media outlets for English (the 5th most spoken language).
Many are confused upon the Boer and Afrikaner, I know the Boer is a minority in a minority, and some of the first trekkers , for westerners could you elaborate?
#4 Afrikaners came after Boers but I don't get befuddled. Predominantly, the Boers still spoke Dutch. Eugene Terre'blanche called us the 'Boervolk', a tribe with legit claims of sovereignty on the States of the Transvaal and Freestate.
Over the years of activism.
I noticed the Boer use much Jewish terminology in there Language,how did this come to be?
#5 Afrikaans is what you get when a Dutch-European landing at the Cape has not enough vocabulary to describe what he sees. We are richly endowed with other mother-tongues. The large Jewish influence on our language may originate from our avid reading of the Old Testament. But we are predominantly Protestant.
What is one of the biggest myths of apartheid? Can you elaborate on some of the worst crimes recently?
#6 The greatest myth about Apartheid is that the Whites did NOT have legitimate claims on the land (and that they therefor could not legislate segregated development). It must be said that ultimately, it was untenable. You can't pacify majorities forever. They will revolt.
Not only are you the leading Musician but becoming the leading activist, do you see yourself as a civil rights leader?
#7 Yes, I see myself as a civil rights activist. I was always one, even when agitating for the New SA. But the new narrative of unity blindfolds us to the plight of minorities. So, while SA problems greatly concern me, I am prioritising the survival of my tribe and its culture. I have similar concerns for the Indian and Coloured citizens who are outbussed by Black social engineering, then out-voted and elbowed from the workforce with vile skin-based policies of BEE,PP,AA,EE, quotas and 'representivity'.
How much do you think your art has helped spread the word of your peoples plight?
#8 As one of the top selling artists in South Africa I have a podium, 4 shows per week for 25 years gives me great access. My career in arts also cannot be regulated to death and I cannot be scripted on stage. I say what I want. Like you, I get plenty criticism, also from liberals in my own tribe, but my career is largely unscathed.
Last question do you see yourself hitting America and do you see a possible White Afrikaan rights tour here or in Africa?
#9 My tours are music tours, not activism. I do use 8 minutes of my 90 minutes on stage with a huge impact-moment solely for my cause. My belief is that I use my music to gain ears for my cultural campaign, not to do activism to sell CD's.
Other artist are on board can you name a few from your local and world wide?
Overall, artists are terrified to be seen making 'anti-transformational' noises with me. But Bok van Blerk, Adam Tas, Sunette Bridges have been known to be vocal. But then, causes are mostly voluntary. It would be great to meet up with Tattoo Billy in the US. Who performs on the night is a choice I leave to the client. They understand the market and venues and PA capacities of my rider. But I'll go to great pains to meet up with tattoo billy you guys!
