Dear BLF, ANC, EFF and whatever other political parties that want White South African's to leave South Africa.

I will gladly with all my family leave this country if you could please do me the favor of paying for my tickets to go back home. You are welcomed to write to the Italian embassy on our behalf to ask the Italian government to set up facilities for people wanting to leave. The grass might not be greener on the other side but at least I don't have to deal with the constant threat of being killed on the basis of our skin color or economic stability. There's are a good portion of Italians that helped and still helping to Build South Africa but if our freedom and love to do so is being threatened then what's the point living here?

flags, statues, road names.. what else/next. monuments, languages, skin colours?

xenophobia is already rife and seemingly accepted, so the neighbour problem is sorted.

to hate something so much that you eventually turn into that very thing.

talking about nazis, the white people supporting all this nonsense with the idea they are being liberal and progressive kind of reminds me of the sonderkommando. aiding their own destruction.

meh
Ignorant, ahistorical rubbish.

Go read up on the Sonderkommando before you imply such disingenuous tripe.

Maybe you have them confused with Kapos?

The overwhelming number of journalists, tv and radio presenters praising censorship...is the irony lost on them?

"
While some would question the display of the flag in people's homes, the judgment suggests that there is hardly any space that is "private" to one race and to the exclusion of another, especially in a democratic South Africa.
It states that the display of the apartheid flag in private spaces, such as homes and schools, is therefore, equally unacceptable and offensive and "hurtful" because black people are invariably employed and exposed one way or another to the "private spaces".

Now my home isn't private anymore ? Tsek.
Luckily I do what I want in MY HOUSE. If I have a hundred flags I will put them up all over my yard seeing as its MY private property.

For me the drama and effort associated with the recreational outrage that would result is not worth the trouble. Plus it would be abused by the Leftists to further distract from actual burning issues, which is what's happening currently.

A flag collector displaying his collection would be a very interesting example. Somewhere along the line, every single flag in the World has some or other issue or association with something that someone will find offensive.
This ruling is just a pathetic attempt to placate a section of Society.
At least the judge saw fit to understand what he will trigger by banning the flag. So I suppose we should be grateful for small mercies.

Presumably, that is why the Confederate flag in the USA has never been banned or restricted?. It is a pity our Judiciary cannot rise above the petty BS that is so pervasive in our country at the moment.

Just because I happen to be "white" does not mean that I therefore automatically "owe" somebody something/anything.
Whoever comes to "expropriate without compensation" something from me that is rightfully mine had better be prepared to face some serious/fierce resistance.
I am not a violent/aggressive person, but will not hesitate to meet violence with violence.

Oh trust me, I don't like fighting, it's just when you're fighting the masses it becomes impossible to fight. It's like my family has been fighting ABSA for 12 years over millions of rands. Nobody cares until someone decides to blow up certain institutions that are supposed to protect people. (not going to blow up anything just using it as a figure of speech)

What does the old SA flag have to do with being white? There is a generation that grew up without this flag and could care less what would happen to it.
what? so the old sa flag does not have anything to do with white oppressing black? well then, thats what some people are saying, since if you know history, it was not adopted for representation of apartheid. if you would bother to comprehend what i was saying, you would realise that i referenced a few different things that have been labelled a problem for some people, its in the very first line of my post.

but i understand the word white always gets you triggered. its apparent in all your posts.

ah yes, the kapos, them too. probably more in line, but both were done under duress. one was just closer to their demise. i did say it kind of reminds me didnt i. today people do it willingly and think themselves heroes of some sort.


just because people wave this flag around, does not mean they all support apartheid or hatred of black people or what ever nastiness. but i understand if it is embarrassing that something like that is a reminder of how much of a failure things currently are, which is what a lot of people relate it to. other than their ancestral history etc.

Unless you have Miss Soweto 2018 and Miss Thembisa 2019 there - it's banned.
Nope. It would be however banned if it did:
President Cyril Ramaphosa has signed the Protection, Promotion, Development and Management of Indigenous Knowledge Bill into law.

The new act aims to prevent the unauthorised use and misappropriation of knowledge developed over time by the country’s indigenous communities.

It also promises to place these communities at the centre of the commercialisation process.

“Indigenous knowledge is a national asset and that it is therefore in the national interest to protect and promote indigenous knowledge through law, policy and both public and private sector programmes,” the act’s preamble states.

It further states that the act will “encourage the use of indigenous knowledge in the development of novel, socially and economically applicable products and services.”

I dont have a flag but will not let this government tell me what I can do in my house or how I should raise my children.

As long as your carry on as you please with the privacy of your property, without advertising it as part of some advocacy campaign, they wouldn't even know that you exist. The more they ban/censor things, the more popular is will become as underground movements.

Ironically, the ANC learned nothing from the mistakes of the National Party Government. In fact, they did exactly what "The White Apartheid Masters" would approve of.
