    Afrikaner Family Seeks Asylum In US

    Johannesburg - A white Afrikaner family is seeking refugee status in the United States, claiming they will be victims of racism if they return to South Africa, The Times newspaper reported on Wednesday. Their lawyer is trying to get academics in the US to give credence to their claim, according to the newspaper. They did not want to speak to the newspaper "because of privacy and safety concerns", said their lawyer Rehim Babaoglu.

    A University of Memphis scholar has rejected requests by the "white Afrikaner farmers" to help them in their court application. "I am not interested in assisting Afrikaners claiming discrimination in a non-racial, democratic, post-apartheid South Africa," said Professor Mark Behr, who is also a white Afrikaner. "In my scholarly opinion, there is absolutely no basis for their allegation, whatever evidence they may present." He told the newspaper that in his view no other academic would back their claims either.
    I wonder what the great professor Behr is doing in the USA then? It is easy for him to make a claim that we are living in "a non-racial, democratic, post-apartheid South Africa" from the safety and security of a first world country. Have he had family murdered over R500? Have he had family attacked on a farm? Did he ever get declined for a job because he was too white? Was he ever told by the police that he should not have resisted his black attackers? Have he ever been told that he must give all of his posessions to blacks who are too lazy to get off their butts to do a honest days work? I wonder when last he visited or read South African newspapers to witness and experience the blatant racism we have to endure almost on a daily basis.

    Every night you go to sleep you wonder would my family be safe from a home intrusion, murder and rape for even one more night. Would I still have a job tomorrow due to black economic empowerment, would my family's farm be stolen and handed to non-deserving blacks through the renewed land grab attempts? I'm going to to use words I want to reserve from using on a public forum (And Skadi especially) but I'm going to say it anyway: Fuck you prof Behr, do you have any idea what your "non-racial, democratic, post-apartheid South Africa" have become?!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Behr

    Undergoing a process of political radicalization himself, he later turned double agent and spied on the South African government on behalf of the African National Congress, one of the major anti-apartheid organizations (and, since the 1994 elections, the governing party of the new multiracial democracy). Having graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree with majors in English and Politics. Behr proceeded to read for an Honors degree in Politics. After a year with IDASA (the Institute for a Democratic Alternative for South Africa) Behr became a Research Fellow and lecturer at the International Peace Research Institute in Oslo, Norway, and began to travel between Europe, South Africa, and the United States. He enrolled at the University of Notre Dame in the United States where he studied with Joseph Buttigieg, the translator of Antonio Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks. Behr graduated from Notre Dame with Master’s degrees in International Peace Studies in 1993, Fiction Writing in 1998, and English Literature in 2000.
    Themes and Influences

    Identity construction through the impact of language, nationalism, gender, and militarization are consistent themes Behr's works. This is similar to other South African writers of his generation, like Damon Galgut and Marlene van Niekerk. Biographical experience and Behr’s identification as gay/queer appear to have strongly influenced the content and nature of his work. He has written of the early influence of The Color Purple' by Alice Walker. Traces of other influence may be found in the work of South African poets Breyten Breytenbach and Antjie Krog. Key theoretical influences in Behr's writing may come from selected texts of Antonio Gramsci, Judith Butler and Richard Rorty.
    Sounds like the SPLC/ADL/Obama Administration's natural go-to guy in rationalizing the torture and murder of Afrikaner children by negroid thugs.

    I truly do not understand how anyone could be such a blind turncoat backstabber in the service of those who murder such innocents as Willemien Potgeiter:

    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Ja nee, the prof. seems to have reserved his place in the good old JEW S of A by playing the "oh-so-sorry-for-Apartheid-card"... Whichever university endorsed his immigration probably saw the opportunity to scoop this self-loathing piece of baboon manure up so that he can dish his dribble out to white students in some "African studies" course (should be called "sympathy for monkeys 101" IMO).

    I suspect he might be a historian/sociologist of some kind if the family seeking asylum's lawyer approached him for academical backing. What is shocking is that when the impending race war in SA breaks out (WHICH IT WILL) and Afrikaners are massacred; this glorified turd will be going into a flat spin about how it’s all their own fault, from the safety of his office in America naturally...

    It makes my stomach turn to think how these ZOG-approved academics of the humanities/arts claim to be the authority on all social issues presently, whilst their work only feature sympathy and advancement of lackluster, uncivilized and destructive races within a historical timeframe of about 400 years. But yet they maintain there is no such thing as race, how is that for professional impartiality?

    This whole matter reminds me of my 3rd year urban geography lecturer, his work was acclaimed by other "scholars" throughout the world seeing as its nature was similar to which I described above. He's a homosexual coincidentally, which fits the profile of a self-loathing leftist excuse for a Germanic perfectly. I wonder what skeletons Mark Behr is hiding in his closet which caused him to hate himself and his own people?

    I found a website with more info on him, you can access it here: http://www.stellenboschwriters.com/behrm.html His picture gives the impression of him having a scared little boy complex, he also started his academic career at Stellenbosch; which is a hotbed for self-loathing Afrikaner “scholars”, similar to the German Frankfurter Schule.

    From the source mentioned above:

    Mark Behr was born on 19 Oktober 1963 at the farm Mbuyu in Tanzania, formerly Tanganyika. With the nationalisation of white-owned farms in East Africa, the Behr family emigrated to South Africa. Mark attended the Drakensberg Boy's Choir Music School and studied at the University of Stellenbosch. He continued his studies in Norway and the United States. He holds Masters degrees in English Literature, International Peace Studies and Fiction Writing from the university of Notre Dame, USA.
    The Smell of Apples, taught in universities around the world, has been translated and published in nine languages, including Hebrew, Chinese, German and Portuguese. Behr's work so far has been primarily concerned with issues of race, gender and militarization within contemporary authoritarian cultures.


    The plot thicken: his own family fled from savage negro violence to South Africa and the Drakensberg Boys Choir has a history of sexual abuse of young boys by choir masters. Hmmm...

    The way people express this anger is all about what culture happens to be in power at the time. If there were a strong positivity about one's own people prevalent in culture, weak-minded victim-types like Baer would not rush to the hate-whitey crowd.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    There are a family that applied for the same thing here in Ireland.
    I wish more people will just muster up the courage to buy a ticket (one way's not allowed to South Africans), and apply for refugee status in other countries.
    Refugees are well looked after and once you are here or there, you could start looking at possibilities. Sadly I think many of my brethren are just too scared to do this. The few that does will find reward, that is for sure.

    With other words not really a person that lawyer should have talked to in order to get academic sources for what is going in on in post-Apartheid South-Africa. But this shows the lawyer is also sloppy in expecting that a spy for the ANC would help support his clients case.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    said Professor Mark Behr, who is also a white Afrikaner.
    He is not an Afrikaner, He is an Anglo-African...
    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    The media24 articles on this are a bit misleading as they give the impression that Mark Behr alone made these outrageous statements. There was another academic by the name of Dennis Laumann
    'We want out of SA'


    NASHIRA DAVIDS | 22 February, 2012 00:31

    The Voortrekker Monument, in Pretoria, a national heritage site - some asylum applicants have said they are targeted in South Africa because they are Afrikaners Picture: ALON SKUY


    A South African family is desperate to remain in the US, its members claiming they cannot return home because, as Afrikaners, they will be subject to racial discrimination.

    The family's legal representative has been contacting US academics in a bid to get a scholarly opinion that would bolster the asylum application.
    The family, described by the law firm as "white Afrikaner farmers", is among dozens of South Africans who, over the past decade, have applied for asylum abroad for a range of reasons, including fear of persecution and violent crime. Some of the applications have been successful.
    When contacted for comment, the family's lawyer, Rehim Babaoglu, said the family was too afraid to be identified.
    "They were shocked to hear that a reporter was seeking information and they have no comment. They definitely don't want to participate because of privacy and safety concerns," said Babaoglu.
    But Professor Mark Behr, of Rhodes College, in Memphis, Tennessee, and Dr Dennis Laumann, of the University of Memphis, have rejected requests that they help the family.
    "I am not interested in assisting Afrikaners claiming discrimination in a non-racial, democratic, post-apartheid South Africa," wrote Laumann.
    "In my scholarly opinion, there is absolutely no basis for their allegation - whatever evidence they may present."
    Behr - who is an award-winning South African author - said he did not believe the law firm would find "any fair-minded scholar" to support the family.
    "If the people your firm seeks to represent are in any way victims of racism, it is, sadly, only a racism of their own making, in their own minds.
    "Let me add, too, that I speak as a white Afrikaner, from a family of farmers, people who themselves lost farms they owned in Africa, and with my own profound empathy for all people who live off the land in South Africa," replied Behr.
    But the family is not alone in attempting to flee post-apartheid South Africa:
    • According to latest statistics from the US Department of Homeland Security, about 129 South Africans were granted asylum between 2001 and 2010;
    • Immigration New Zealand's general manager for settlement, protection and attraction, Stephen Dunstan, said 48 South Africans had applied for refugee status since 2006. All were rejected; and
    • Germany's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees received nine applications for asylum between 2009 and 2011.
    Russell Kaplan, the lawyer for South African Brandon Huntley, who is still fighting for refugee status in Canada, said the trend was growing.
    "My office is involved in other South African claims - I prefer not to say how many - and I continue to speak to many white South Africans every month who report increasing fear for themselves and their families," Kaplan said.
    Gary Eisenberg, who specialises in immigration law, said that, though the topic was complex, he believed that many applicants had a valid case.
    "There exist, for instance, entry quotas for whites at universities, and BEE policies restricting the hiring of white candidates in the private sector," said Eisenberg.
    "If these measures could be interpreted to be state-sponsored or supported discrimination based on colour or race classification, for example, then a well-founded case of discrimination on those facts could be made in terms of the asylum rules of Western countries, such as the UK, Canada and the US."
    But Eisenberg said it would be difficult for someone to apply for asylum on the basis that he felt that the state supported or sponsored the high levels of crime in the country.
    Adriana Stuijt, a retired Dutch-born journalist who worked in South Africa, estimates that there are almost 800 South Africans living as refugees around the world.
    Stuijt has a blog that monitors the number of refugees and is a member of the Afrikaner Rescue Action Fund, which was started in the Netherlands to help poor Afrikaner communities.
    "The latest case, a South African Afrikaans-speaking man of German descent, is in north Germany. He applied three months ago. He fled because of many violent incidents and threats to his life," said Stuijt.
    "The latest group of asylum-seekers, from 2011 and 2012, I find are often Afrikaner individuals or families, most of them from farming regions.
    "Some are sponsored by US families and religious communities and are still in the asylum process in several states."
    AfriForum's deputy CEO, Ernst Roets, said that though the organisation did not encourage South Africans to leave the country, the crisis on the farms has left many with no alternative .
    Roets said San Pedro Sula, Honduras, has the highest murder rate in the world - 159 murders per 100000 inhabitants.
    "In South Africa, to be a farmer, the murder rate is more than 300 per 100000, according to criminologists," said Roets.
    "What encourages people to ask for refugee status is the fact that our government is not taking real steps to address the issue.''
    Just this week, a dairy farmer was killed and his wife badly injured in Buffelshoek, North West.
    Roets travelled to Geneva in December to address the UN Human Rights Council on the crisis on South African farms. He said the biggest concern was that a minority group was being targeted.
    His intention, he said, was to create awareness and put pressure on the government to "take this more seriously".
    But Lucy Holborn, research manager at the SA Institute of Race Relations, said statistics did not back up arguments that, by virtue of being a minority group, Afrikaners were more likely to be crime targets.
    "The majority of victims of crime in South Africa are black . I often argue that crime is the one thing that cuts across all race groups," said Holborn.
    She said there was not sufficient evidence to suggest that crime in farming communities was racially motivated.
    Dave Steward, executive director of the FW de Klerk Foundation, said South Africa, despite "some threats" to basic human rights, such as the Protection of State Information Bill, was a long way from being in a situation where people should be seeking asylum.
    "The situation on the farms [is] fairly critical but whether that is a result of government activity - often the requirement for political asylum - is another matter."
    Yesterday, Home Affairs spokesman Ronnie Mamoepa said it was impossible to say how many South Africans made asylum or refugee applications.

    Check it out, this Dennis Laumann is an open staunch Communist, which makes him more honest then most of his colleagues.
    "And God proclaims as a first principle to the rulers, and above all else, that there is nothing which they should so anxiously guard, or of which they are to be such good guardians, as of the purity of the race. They should observe what elements mingle in their offspring;..." Plato Politeia

    The would have better luck at gaining asylum if they were Kenyans.

    Just what kind of visa did Behr use to get into the US? We don't have a shortage of marxist-homosexual academics.

    http://www.stellenboschwriters.com/behrm.html

    I truly do not understand how anyone could be such a blind turncoat backstabber in the service of those who murder such innocents as Willemien Potgeiter:

    I actually attended and followed the trial of the murdered Potgieter family. The judge said when giving his verdict that it was one of the most brutal crimes that he has heard of. The facts and evidence that was given was shocking, the way they executed the little daughter and killed the parents.

    What bothers me the most is the fact that all the farm murders are done in a similar brutal way. I am a lawyer in the Free State in RSA and we deal with these type of cases on a monthly basis. I recommend that anyone who does not believe that these murders are racially based, attend one of these trials. Most of those people won't be able to sit through the whole trial!
