Record 45 million people in
Southern Africa face hunger: UN

Original Article

Johannesburg—The United Nations World Food Programme said on Thursday that a record 45 million people in the 16-nation Southern African Development Community faced growing hunger following repeated drought, widespread flooding and economic disarray. Southern Africa is in the grips of a severe drought, as climate change wreaks havoc in impoverished countries already struggling to cope with extreme natural disasters, such as Cyclone Idai which devastated Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi in 2019. Zimbabwe, once the breadbasket of southern Africa, is experiencing its worst economic crisis in a decade, marked by soaring inflation and shortages of food, fuel, medicines and electricity.

Comments:

A quintessentially African tale: black Marxist dictators murdered the white farmers, stole their land, and now the people are starving in "the breadbasket of the world" while the tyrants bask in luxury, funded by foreign aid money. Reuters and the UN blame Climate Change, which is caused by greedy Americans in their SUVs.

They changed the S African 'constitution' last year to allow farms to be seized 'legally'....didn't take long for them to go full Argentina. Also think Capetown ran out of water last year, that couldn't help things either.

Right, OP. Let's get real. The reason Southern Africa is starving is because the countries in the region who were best able to feed the southern part of the continent decided to either kill or run off most of the people who actually knew how to raise crops in quantities. The land was 'redistributed' to people who at best could grow a kitchen garden for their own use in good years, but knew nothing about land management, irrigation, fertilizing, crop rotation, marketing, storage etc. So now that they don't have white farmers to blame for their problems, it must be whites somewhere else who are to blame. ALWAYS.

"Economic disarray"might just as well describe Africa from its very beginning. I've wondered about how it is that if indeed all the human species supposedly originated from Africa why it is that since African inhabitants had hundreds if not thousands of years to advance prior to the development of, say, Europe, then why didn't Africans long ago fly to the moon, develop high tech nations that became first-world rather than third-world when it seemingly should have been just the opposite. Blaming climate for Africa's woes purposely ignores the actual reasons because the geography and climate conditions of Europe and N. America are arguably equal in their pluses and minuses for life and prosperity. So it has to be the humans that make the difference.

Sorry UN, but as long as you stand by silently while the genocide of whites (particularly farmers) is gearing up to go full blast in several of those nations, I cannot feel any kind of sympathy. The blacks of those nations are building this with their own tribal hatred of whites, and I don't believe it is our responsibility to ride to the rescue. These blacks who are building this need the condemnation of the world for this atrocity, not its sympathetic pats on the head.

Africa will forever be cursed with despots and tyrants who use food as a weapon. You could give any country trillions of dollars to buy food and it would instead end up in one brute's Swiss bank account with kickbacks to politicians, as needed.

The marxists need agitated people to tear down the existing social structure. But agitated minds can not work at something, for example farming, for the long period it takes to learn the skill. So unavoidably what follows a marxist tsunami is incompetent and/or malicious devastation.

I have a white friend who lives in Zimbabwe. He is selling his house and getting out. He tells me the new guy is no better. The country is completely corrupt with the big men at the top living in luxury and the rest of the population dirt poor and starving. The average IQ in sub-Sahara Africa is around 70.

This is because we have given them modern medicine and helped with the infrastructure that this many could live at all. Those areas typically, 300 years ago, couldn't support even 15% of that number of people, given their total lack of technology and any form of government beyond the local tribal leader - good for maybe 20,000 people at the very largest and one, MAYBE two, generations before they killed each other and fell back to their huts, goats, clay pots and digging sticks. This part of the world has been a total failure for more than 5,000 years. Nothing is going to change that except a complete replacement of all the original people, and the entire dysfunctional, destructive culture. The thin veneer of civilization brought by the Rhodesians and South Africans was at the highest level. I have a friend who is a retired medical doc in RSA, but his children have emmigrated to Australia. Soon enough the veneer will be gone, and things will crumble that much faster. How many remember Dr. Christiaan Barnard, trained at Univ. of Cape Town who did the first ever heart transplant in the world in 1967? They were literally leading edge in the 60s. It is sad how far the black tribal Marxists (doubly damned) have brought things already in RSA. They have almost entirely destroyed Rhodesia (calling it Zimbabwe now). RSA will head downward, probably permanently.

The Chinese have been making a big move into Africa, among other regions, for the minerals. They (from what I've read) build infrastructure ONLY for their purposes. There's nothing humanitarian about anything they do. Friends of ours volunteered on a hospital ship off the coast of West Africa and when they went on shore they were stunned by the level of poverty and disease. Here's the reason why we prefer nationalism over tribalism. And tribalism is the direction the Left in our Republic is trying to compel us. The primary motivation of Marxists is power. As Marxism is an end in itself, the natural course of things is brutish totalitarianism, nothing at all humanitarian. So the most brutal groups in power, and on the move to gain power, do not care if the people starve. In fact, a starving population is weaker, vulnerable, manipulable.

Berkeley—Just after 8 on a warm evening in September, Janae Bell was shooting the breeze with two friends at the Hearst Avenue railroad crossing, sharing some pastries and talking bikes.

Republicans — including Sens.
