This is from one of my favourite songs: Siret el-Hob by Om Kalthoum. So many memories. Incandescent. Gorgeous. #Egypt
The only reason I wish I was born earlier than I was, is to have experienced more of Om Kalthoum’s music as an adult who understood its depth, to be transformed like the woman in the audience at the end of this video of her transcendent live performances
I also love Lessa Faker- here are the opening 9mins of this magnificent song that is usually 45mins or so. I say usually, bec the audience often applauds to get Om Kalthoum to repeat a verse

(1) The anti-white sentiment in #SouthAfrica is an aspect of #tribalism.

Outsiders see it as racial, because they r not aware of the endemic internecine conflicts which occurred inter-tribally - long before the white Boers arrived in South Africa.

It's an economic power play
(2) which would unfold against any land-owners should the white #Boers not be there.

It manifests itself as racism, but in reality is an economically-motivated #tribalism (you have - we don't - we take) with #Marxist elements seeded into the movement to foment hate and violence
(3) Complicated #Marxist dynamics, fueled by #tribalism (which as an ethnic phenomenon can encapsulate racism) - but base motivations reside in economic differences versus color or tribe - despite what alternative state media in SA maintains

25 years after the genocide against the Tutsi, hate radio RTLM is back! This time, it is called "Radio Itahuka".

Radio Itahuka is the official network of the Rwanda National Congress (RNC) of Kayumba #Nyamwasa, who lives in #SouthAfrica.

(Thread)

This Radio, whose Director is @sergiondayi of RNC, broadcasts from Washington D.C., United States.

RNC is an armed group operating in eastern #DRC, which was pinned by the recent report of the UN Group of Experts.

Yesterday 4th January 2018, @jpturayishimye, Spokesperson of the RNC and one of the main hosts on Radio Itahuka, was receiving on his show Prof @charleskambanda, a law Professor at @StJohnsU. What this professor said very openly on air was chilling. Buckle up!

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:

PLS WATCH:

It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO

VS

#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

1/ Let me tell you about #SouthAfrica friends since it's topical and I've lived here for 30 years.
2/ The biggest divides between black and white are cultural and almost invisible but very very important.

Black people -> group culture.
White people -> individual culture.

#SouthAfrica
3/ In group cultures, people are loyal to the group in exchange for protection. Your identity is found in the group to which you belong. No person is 100% one or the other of course - we're all a mixture of both. However, by and large, black people are group culture, whites not.

Interesting on its own, this story about how Russian trolls pushed vaccine debates in the US includes several other key points that are worth examining. THREAD
www-m.cnn.com/2018/08/23/hea…
First of all, it's fascinating to me just from the standpoint of how even the most absurd propositions can draw wide audiences, when thinking people should be able to dismiss them out of hand. 2/
Second, the fact that we will argue ad inifinitum about subjects that don't deserve a second look is a serious indictment of something - either our inherently American contrariness or the ground-leveling effect social media has. 2/

I’m not surprised that an inclusive, race conscious (not colorblind) Black Conservative, like #TimScott could see right through what his “colorblind” Senate colleagues couldn’t! The judge’s writings sound eerily familiar, so familiar to alt right talking points on gender & race.
And if you look at the publication that the Judge wrote for “The Stanford Review”, whose founder is Peter Theil, it gets even weirder. Why? Because it’s been alleged that Peter Theil (a gay billionaire) has always had major problems with diversity — he even wrote a book on it.
Peter Theil wasn’t born in America; he was born In Germany, and then he later lived in South Africa 🇿🇦. In college one of Thiel’s African American doormats said “One day I heard a rumor that Peter defended #apartheid (which was then still the law of the land in #SouthAfrica)

President Obasanjo once called maintaining Nigeria Airways (NAL) irresponsible. Six years later, one of his successors, despite a petition from former NAL employees appealing for ₦45 billion in severance pay, is shopping the world for an investor for a proposed national carrier.
Between a ferocious fight over revenue sharing, and ignoring the obvious on Boko Haram, bad ideas seem to die slowly, such that it has almost obscured the recognition Nigeria’s music industry got from the world’s largest music label.
The latest #BokoHaram attacks don't suggest a resurgence of the group so much as they demonstrate its resilience, capacity for strategic hibernation and stealth.

They also indicate that the financing with which it procures weapons and its recruitment remain largely uninhibited.

. @BarackObama gave an historic speech in #SouthAfrica. Highlights:
Globalization sired, "an explosion in economic inequality. It’s meant that a few dozen individs control the same amt of wealth as the poorest 1/2 of humanity. That’s not an exaggeratn; that’s a statistic."

"In many middle-income & devel'ing countries, new wealth has just tracked the old bad deal that people got, bcuz it reinforced or even compounded existing patterns of inequality; the only diff is it created even greater opps for corruption on an epic scale."

[3] #Obama
"And for once solidly middle-class families in advanced economies like the US, these trends have meant >er economic insecurity, especially for those who don’t have specialized skills, people who were in manufacturing, working in factories, working on farms."

1/3 This week I attended the opening of the #Mandela centenary exhibition.

In a short speech, Lord Hain thanked one of the sponsors, Moti Group, twice.

According to @mailandguardian Lord Hain is
employed by them "in part to improve their poor reputation" mg.co.za/article/2018-0…
2/3 Moti Group is a mining & property
company that's been subject to some controversy. It allegedly has links to
Zimbabwean officials implicated in human rights violations & in 2017,
Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for the company's chair mg.co.za/article/2018-0…
3/5 Journalist @simonallison writes:

"There is no suggestion that the royals were aware of or intended to
endorse the Moti Group’s controversial business practises; or the group’s links
to senior Zimbabwean officials that have been implicated in serious human
rights violations."

Statistics on #FarmMurders and #FarmAttacks were released by the South African government for the first time since 2011, confirming an average of 510 attacks and 56 murders per year, that is more than one per week.
Farmers are being slaughtered in the most horrific, inhumane, sadistic, barbaric ways. They are tortured until they die, women raped for hours on end while their husband's are forced to watch, their heads are crushed and they are set alight.
#FarmMurders
>Tortured with electrical drills
>Finger nails pulled out
>Hands removed from bodies
>Drowned in boiling hot water
Torture which would have earned applause from Spanish Inquisition Torturers. ISIS style atrocities.

South Africa votes through motion to seize land from white farmers without compensation!

This is what the Democrats want in the US. They want Trump out so they can complete their plans.

Redistribution of land. The people who work hard for their land now have it stripped from them to give to the poor. Once everyone is poor, government has all the power. How can anyone not see this for what it is?
