The “Scorched Earth” campaign to burn down White owned farms in South Africa
By Mike Smith
4th of September 2012
About a year ago I reported on the return of the scorched earth policy against Boer farmers.
The return of the Scorched-Earth policy against Boer farmers - http://mikesmithspoliticalcommentary.blogspot.de/2...
In there you can read about how two farmers caught arsonists red handed and when they tried to apprehend them, the two farmers were arrested and thrown in prison, whilst at the same time to black township went on a rampage and stoned the fire brigade.
The arsonists at the time had already destroyed 6000ha of agricultural land including stables and homesteads.
More than 300 white owned farms were deliberately set on fire by blacks in the North West area. Tens of thousands of livestock cattle burned to death. Some were unfortunate to survive the ordeal.
You can see the horrible results of this scorched earth policy against the farmers over here. The product of the black’s scorched earth policy against white farmers
The past weekend, heavy fires destroyed vast sections of land in the Bethlehem district in the Eastern Freestate. In the morning (04:00) of 1 September 2012 whilst trying to extinguish one of the fires, farmers caught an arsonist red handed. Police arrested the bastard.
In the South of the Freestate, in the Rouxville area, 10,500ha land has been destroyed by fires. The statistics for the past year shows 201,000ha of land destroyed by fires in the Freestate alone.

But it is not just animals dying in these fires. Yesterday, 3rd of September, News24 reported of three children aged between seven and thirteen in the Dealsville district who burned to death in their home in the early hours of the morning. The fire started shortly after midnight.

It is clear that arsonists are going onto farms in the middle of the night and start fires. It seems like an orchestrated campaign is being waged against the farmers to chase them off their land by burning down their farms.
