ANC Youth League President leads black students in singing "shoot the Boers."


Malema, the Youth League President of South Africa’s ruling political party led a rally of thousands of black Johannesburg University students in chants of “shoot the Boer.” A Boer is a white South African of Dutch ancestry. Boer means “farmer” in Dutch.

The jubilant song has been heard at ANC rallies in the past. There are different versions, usually lines are switched based on current events. The main part goes “kill the Boer, the racists,” “kill the Boer, kill the farmer,” or as Malema’s chant went “shoot the Boer, the racists.”

A group of white people filed criminal charges with the South African Human Rights Commission for inciting racial violence. However the ANC is defending Malema and the chant.

ANC national spokesman Mthembu told newspapers that the “Kill the Boer” chant “is no different from the De la Rey” song.

De la Rey is a country song about the Boer Wars with Britain and the imprisonment of Dutch women and children in concentration camps.

Here is an old video of ANC supporters singing the kill the Boers song from the 80’s or 90’s.

Here is the De la Rey song and video. The ANC national spokesman said there is no difference between this song and the “kill the Boers” song.

The difference between the songs is as great as the difference between Western and African culture!

When the ANC chants “kill the Boer,” and “kill the farmer” its supporters take this DEAD SERIOUS. In a country that has the highest murder rate in the entire world, white farmers are four times more likely to be murdered than the general population.
