Do white lives matter? Roll call of June 2020 farm murders and attacks

Farm attacks and murders are not new at all in South Africa. It has been happening for 3 decades as the ANC and other black nationalist parties wage a racial war of attrition against the South African white minority. The facts and figures on this are clear and the statistics are being kept by organizations like Afriforum, ToekomsVonk and TLU SA. The government does not keep these statistics and the ANC and their volunteers like the liberal media and a certain social media group try their best to – through propagandist methods – make as if this is not happening because they simply don’t want the world to know.

These are the reported incidents for 1 June 2020 – 27 June 2020 ( we might have left a case or 2 out that we did not hear about). The fact that almost all the victims were white indicates that there is a specifically targeted group with these attacks.

And to think that President Cyril Ramaphosa, whilst on a visit to New York in 2018, told Bloomberg News that there are no farm murders in South Africa.
