    Default The South African Far Right have not gone away....

    Federal Freedom Party (FFP) is a relatively new group or party that has been operating for some time in South Africa. Their prime aim is to have self determination for Afrikaaner whites in South Africa. Two members of the group were arrested in the last day or two along with two other roght wing extremists after planning to blow up a meeting of the main ANC party which is South Africas ruling party. The FFP released a statement to say that

    "We are a political party, not a military organisation," national secretary Francois Cloete said.

    "They are innocent until proven guilty, but our party doesn't stand for acts of terrorism."
    This is not the first time though that extremists have been arrested for plotting against the South African state.

    In July, a former university lecturer was found guilty of orchestrating a 2002 plot aimed at assassinating Mandela, overthrowing the ANC and driving South Africa's black majority out of the country.

    I suppose since the demise of "Careful with that Axe, Eugene" Terreblanche and the Afrikaaner Witbroederbond, there was a space for these people to inhabit.

    What's in a name?

    national secretary Francois Cloete said
    He really did pick his one. In Flemish, and Afrikaans, Cloete is a rather rude way of describing male genitals... (the Dutch would spell it with a K and "OO")

    You reminded me that there was two ideaologies at work. Both the boers and Irish Republicanism both fought British oppression but thankfully Irish Republicanism went down a path of being inclusive and Boer/Afrikaaner nationalism went down the path of isolation and the call for an Afrikaaner homeland to the exclusion of others . Republicanism would allow for a shared nation of everyone (Im critical of Shinners but at least they are inclusive of everyone from ethnic minorities to the gay community). Afrikaan nationalism seems to have manifested itself quite nastily and even after the fall of apartheid its still an issue.
