This is the death blow for the Whites
Schumacher, Paul M. (Spiegel, 1985)
SPIEGEL interview with the radical Boer Eugene TerreBlanche on the apartheid Eugene Terreblanche, 41, leader of the African Weerstandbeweging (AWB), which was founded to defend the doctrine of racial purity. *
SPIEGEL: Mr. Terreblanche, the mixed-marriage ban and the indecencyparagraph, the physical love between people of different skin color are placed under penalty abolished. How about that?
Terreblanche: It’s the kiss of death for whites. The government now has no moral right longer to retain the other apartheid laws. When the mixture is allowed from the blood when they say it does not violate the law and the Scriptures, that children are born from such relationships, then one should not make the second-class citizens.
SPIEGEL: You said it yourself: apartheid, especially those pure apartheid who want to get, makes non-whites are second class.
Terreblanche: Apartheid is for me not oppression. It is a system between different races. People of different races are kept apart in peace. Nowhere in Africa, where the white man was in the minority, the blacks have him left alone.
SPIEGEL: The white “Afrikaners” live for over 300 years in Africa, yet they have such fear of the blacks?
Terreblanche: I’m realistic. There is no consensus among the whites in South Africa and the blacks in Africa. Where blacks have taken power, the White property and pensions were taken away. They were driven out of their factories, burned their property.
SPIEGEL: But in fact only when it came to war …
Terreblanche: I seek no war, but I’m not afraid. I’m not afraid to fight – not really. The government has now created conditions that make a white-black confrontation inevitable.
SPIEGEL: That’s why they call in your circles the President Pieter Botha a “traitor”?
Terreblanche: If you can think of another word, an equivalent, then please. He is the biggest sellouts of the Afrikaner nation.
SPIEGEL: He is the first South African head of state tried for almost forty years of apartheid, to be secured with hesitant to change the White survival. Is that so bad?
Terreblanche: The white man will go under if Botha continues his way.
SPIEGEL: Is it true that people like to call their dogs “Botha”?
Terreblanche: I do not think that someone who loves his pet, gives him such a name.
SPIEGEL: You want a white homeland …
Terreblanche: … a white people’s state.
Terreblanche: We used the “Zuidafrikaanse Republiek” and the Republic “Vrystaat Oranje” (the modern provinces of Transvaal and Orange Free State). They have stolen from us, the English after two thirds of our people were killed.
SPIEGEL: The Boers were forced to close after two lost wars in 1902 with the British peace. Do you want to return to the turn of the century, a third Anglo-Boer War, perhaps?
Terreblanche: We are looking forward to us before the next turn of the century is not seeking the Revolution. The Jews did not get back until after 2000 years of their country.
SPIEGEL: How do you achieve this?
Terreblanche: We have to get rid of Botha and his half-breeds on the Cape, if we win the next election. In the Transvaal and the Free State we have no hybrid problems, 85 percent of the races living in the Cape Province.
SPIEGEL: So-called racial missteps has it even when your people but also given time and again.
Terreblanche: Yes, there were exceptions, some weaklings. But remember, we went on the Great Trek from the Cape, when the British abolished the racial shame there.
SPIEGEL: The Boers have, however, scientific evidence shows an average of about seven percent “dark” blood.
Terreblanche: The Colonial yes, but not the Boers in the Transvaal and Free State. In 99 percent of the cases – which are then maybe it happened again – the white man went to the black woman. A white woman with a black man, has there been as good as ever. So when then children were born, grew to less than blacks. With such half-breeds, we have nothing to do.
SPIEGEL: Are you personally quite sure that you only have white ancestors?
Terreblanche: Of course.
SPIEGEL: Who is it white in your state, if it ever came so far, do the work?
Terreblanche: For many years there will be also many blacks. Because they can not simply _ (Paul M. Schumacher in Pretoria.)
charge and create jobs in their home countries. We need to make these areas are first viable.
SPIEGEL: You are farmers. Do you have black people?
Terreblanche: Only two, which I give to work.
SPIEGEL: It is said that you had Nazi sympathies?
Terreblanche: The left propaganda is lying when they claimed that I was a pure National Socialist. In fact, I’m Afrikaner nationalist. Paul Kruger is closer to me than Adolf Hitler. ”
SPIEGEL: When you see how to salute with outstretched arm and open hand at the end of a speech, you might think otherwise.
Terreblanche: If I represent with fire and love my job and some Jews will fear it, then must have the same fear. I am a son of this country.
SPIEGEL: You have the new South African Constitution, which since last September for the first time confers brown South Africans, political participation, given 18 months. For then you predict “the great bloody confrontation.” Where will you be?
Terreblanche: I will come with all their might, with my whole motion for order, justice and security. But if all falls right, then we will reclaim this land by force.
SPIEGEL: In less than twelve months it’s going to start?
Terreblanche: Well, the date is not important. But when the government capitulated – and I’m convinced – then we fight. We Boers have no other home than this country – or do you want us in Germany?
