    Exclamation White House Petition Asks Trump to Back 2-State Solution in South Africa

    Some 120,000 people have signed a petition on the White House website so far, asking U.S. President Donald Trump to condemn the racist and violent “collective punishment” being inflicted on minority communities across South Africa — much of it unleashed by the increasingly radical South African government. The petition, which is set to receive an official response after reaching the signature threshold, also asks the U.S. government to support a two-state solution for that troubled country. The proposed separation would see Western-minded Afrikaans speakers in the Western Cape area seceding from the Eastern region of what is today known as the Republic of South Africa. The goal: secure a future for increasingly marginalized minorities in Southern Africa.

    The petition, which was launched on October 12 and had passed the 100,000 number required for a response within just 10 days, has three primary requests for the U.S. government. The first: an official U.S. condemnation of the actions committed against minority communities in South Africa, including largely Christian Afrikaans speakers. As the world's top scholar on genocide, journalists around the world, The New American magazine, and many other sources have documented extensively, an organized hate campaign at least tacitly supported by government has resulted in widespread atrocities against embattled minorities. These crimes range from gruesome murders and torture to organized government-backed theft of property based on race. The situation has become dire — and it is getting worse.

    “As the leader of the free world, it would be of immense significance if the U.S. Government strongly condemns the racist actions directed against minorities by the South African government and radical groups,” reads the petition. In particular, the petition's authors and signatories ask Trump to speak out against “any and all calls for the killing, marginalization, persecution, victimization, racial profiling, dehumanization and targeting of any racial minority group in SA by any of its officials.” Also, the document asks the U.S. government to condemn any law that expropriates land without compensation or threatens private-property rights. The land-theft campaign, part of the “Radical Second Phase” of South Africa's ongoing communist revolution, has sparked concerns around the world as officials plot a massive heist of farms similar to what happened under genocidal Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe.

    In response to the White House petition, Transvaal Agricultural Union (TLU-SA) President Louis Meintjies, who represents South African farmers, explained just how serious and urgent the situation has become. “The ultimate result of what the government is currently introducing is the collapse of the economy and the redistribution of poverty which will affect all of us,” he warned. “The recent denial on an international television network, by President Ramaphosa, that no farm murders and no land grabs are taking place, is a clear indication that the government will not take responsibility for the disastrous consequences of their policies. Unless the international community intervene, we will see yet another humanitarian disaster that could have been avoided.”

    Finally, Trump was asked by petitioners to condemn the “brutal murder, torture and other attacks on minorities, and especially on white farmers in South Africa, and the subsequent denials by the South African Government and President Cyril Ramaphosa.” Of course, Trump did speak out on the issue using social media in August after seeing a segment done by Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers,” Trump wrote, drawing headlines worldwide and fresh interest in the growing crisis facing South African minorities.

    People haven't learned yet? The petition website was setup under Obama and is not used under Trump. Even under Obama there were many petitions that never received an official response.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.
