South African whites are easily hoodwinked. This of course is because the international media usually turn a blind eye to atrocities committed against whites by Africans, because it is not the “flavor of the month”. Even so-called political scholars will tell you in detail about the genocide of the Huti’s and Tutsi’s, but they are totally ignorant about a white refugee crisis a mere 40 years ago.
The flight of 500 000 Portuguese from Angola and 750 000 from Mozambique after vicious racial attacks is one of history’s “secrets”. It is now 40 years later – will the white flight from South Africa also become one of the world’s political “secrets” because it is politically incorrect even talking about it? It is, after all, again a racist, African scenario which the United Nations choose to ignore.
The Portuguese call it the greatest exodus in the history of Africa. Not even the Congo during Uhuru in the 1960’s where 90 000 whites had to flee for their lives between January and July, can compare with the human tragedy of the Portuguese in Angola and Mozambique in 1975.
South Africa, Brazil and Portugal at the time rushed to the aid of the more than one million Portuguese trapped in Angola and Mozambique. In July the Brazilian airline, Varig, however, ceased its flights through Luanda to Rio, which were already fully booked to mid-October.
For a long time the Portuguese government delayed any substantial help for the refugees. But with the launching of “Operation Air Bridge” it eventually recognised its responsibility to its citizens in Angola. By that time up to 200,000 had left Angola already; in June and early July more than 6,000 a week were taking scheduled commercial flights on the Portuguese airline, TAP, and another 3,500 were flown home on military aircraft.
Thousands of refugees flooded South West Africa (Namibia), fleeing for their lives just because they were whites. Trucks arrived at a rate of about 300 per week in SWA and from there to South Africa.
Mof those that fled Angola did not have passports with them when they crossed into South West Africa and therefore could not prove that they did in fact have Portuguese nationality. Unlike the Mozambicans who had close ties with both Rhodesia as well as South Africa (both countries absorbed about 120 000 Mozambicans after the September coup and October massacres of 1975) the Angolans did not have much contact with South Africa and while very few were unable to speak English, almost none could speak Afrikaans.
The racial attacks brought plunder, murder and mayhem. Women and children were sexually molested or raped at roadblocks set up by the various Mozambican and Angolan “liberation movements”, especially if there was nothing of value that could be bartered with to ensure that the women were not harassed. Stories of women being raped at all of the roadblocks they encountered are not uncommon.
Many Afrikaners, descendants of the 1928 Dorsland Trek, also took flight and had headed to South West Africa and just like the Portuguese men, Afrikaner men could also do little to protect their loved ones.
Today we can learn valuable lessons from the forgotten history:
• African atrocities committed against whites are easily forgotten and wiped from the records;
• The Angolans turned to the National Front for protection, but it was too late, and the NF was crushed as soon as the last white convoy departed;
• The Portuguese had been enticed by the Angolan and Mosambican governments to hand over their weapons for the sake of a “gun free country”.
• Never, ever believe the hollow reassurances of “there’s too many of us; it cannot happen here”. It happened in Angola, Mozambique and Rhodesia. 750 000 in Mozambique, 500 000 in Angola and 250 000 in Rhodesia were not “too many”.
You can choose to believe the reassurances of the ANC, DA, the media, the international community until you also become part of the “hidden history”.
At Front National we choose not to. But FN also cannot force the gullible of Save South Africa, pragmatist organisations and multicultural political parties.
