Afrikaner couple tortured with hot irons

Afrikaner couple tortured with hot irons

May 18 2013 – Beeld newspaper writes that Johan van Wyk’s in-laws, Bronkhorstspruit farmers Les and Gayle Adlam, 67 and 63, were attacked and tortured with hot irons. Van Wyk said that the five-year-old girl – their adopted daughter – grabbed a flashlight and ran away after she was beaten. “I found her wandering next to the road,” he said. The child also was beaten by the farm -attackers, said Van Wyk. “They demanded money.
They took R10 000, 3 firearms and ammunition. The men tortured the couple with hot irons and bashed them with an iron object.’ Mr Adlam has been admitted in very serious condition to hospital with a cracked skull. The Adlam couple’s daughter Claire van Wyk 32 wrote on her Facebook page: “Please pray for mom and dad. Assaulted in farm attack on Balmoral road. My dad’s condition is very bad.’
A few hours later she wrote: “My mom is very blued and sore but no fractures. My dad does not have bleeding on the brain, but about all his facial bones are cracked and he has not regained consciousness. The men went into the farm house, went to their bedroom, woke them up and tied them up. They demanded money, took R10,000, three firearms and ammunition and burnt them with hot irons and beat them with a metal object’.

Whites Murdered by Blacks

Whites Murdered by Blacks

Since 1994, more than 60000 (if not 60000, I apologize profusely and you can replace the number with 'a shitload' - these numbers come from various other sites - and they have increased since I wrote this article - Google 'muldersdrift') white South Africans have been murdered of which more than 4000 were commercial farmers. Exact figures are very hard to come by as the South African police fail to report most of the murders that take place. There is also no distinction between white and black victims in crime records.

The estimated number of whites sounds like a lot. But it's pretty much common knowledge around the world that there are 50+ murders PER DAY in SA. From 1994 to 2013, that's around 350 000 murders. So, why is it so hard to believe that 60 000 of those are black on white? It's about 17% of the total murders. But the numbers are not the main issue here. It's the NATURE of the crimes.

As the white population of South Africa was 4 434 697 according to the official state census in 1996, and more than 400 000 white South Africans have left the country, it could be estimated that nearly 2% of white South Africans have been murdered in the 18 years of democracy.

Compare that to the 7518 black people that were murdered by the Apartheid government, which comes to a percentage of 0.02% of the black population. (And no, you can't compare people killed by the security forces with people killed by civilians, but I'm sure that if you look up white on black civilian murders during Apartheid, it would still be very low indeed. I'm not in the business of statistics - I'm trying to highlight the fact that it is a lie that the Apartheid government killed millions of blacks)

So, if anybody ever asks you how many black people were killed by white people in South Africa, you can tell them that black people have murdered roughly 100 times more white people in the last 63 years.


White Farmers Murdered by Blacks

There were roughly 128 000 commercial farmers in South Africa in 1980. Today there are 40 000 commercial farmers left in South Africa.

Since 1994, more than 4000 farmers have been murdered and many more maimed, tortured, raped and assaulted.

Go to I guarantee that you will read about either a farm murder or an elderly couple that was murdered EVERY DAY.

The percentages are pretty alarming. Even though it's an inaccurate way of expressing murder rates, one could argue that almost 10% of white farmers in South Africa have been murdered.

The official data is that the murder rate of white South African Farmers (boers) is the highest in the world by profession. It is currently 310/100 000. In London, England, the probability of being murdered is 3/100 000.

It amazes me that white South Africans need to go through lengthy visa applications to enter English speaking nations - isn't it obvious that we should be able to claim asylum based on the fact that we have such a massive probability of being murdered in our own country?
