The Ghost of Ian Smith

Roland was a warrior
From the Land of the Midnight Sun
With a Thompson gun for hire
Fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark
On a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra
To join the bloody fray

Through sixty-six and seven
They fought the Congo war
With their fingers on their triggers
Knee-deep in gore
For days and nights they battled
The Bantu to their knees
They killed to earn their living
And to help out the Congolese

Roland the Thompson gunner
Roland the Thompson gunner

His comrades fought beside him
Van Owen and the rest
But of all the Thompson gunners
Roland was the best
So the CIA decided
They wanted Roland dead
That son-of-a-bitch Van Owen
Blew off Roland's head

Roland the headless Thompson gunner
(Time, time, time for another peaceful war)
Norway's bravest son
(But time stands still for Roland 'til he evens up the score)
They can still see his headless body
Stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun

Roland searched the continent
For the man who'd done him in
He found him in Mombasa
In a barroom drinking gin
Roland aimed his Thompson gun
He didn't say a word
But he blew Van Owen's body
From there to Johannesburg

Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Roland the headless Thompson gunner
(Talkin' about the man)
Roland the headless Thompson gunner

The eternal Thompson gunner
Still wandering through the night
Now it's ten years later
But he still keeps up the fight
In Ireland, in Lebanon
In Palestine and Berkeley
Patty Hearst heard the burst
Of Roland's Thompson gun and bought it

[Lyrics transcribed by The Ghost of Ian Smith in June of 2019]
A new version of the great song Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner by Warren Zevon and David Lindel
It is sung by Lauren O'Connell

The fictional character Roland is a Norwegian who becomes embroiled in the aftermath of the Nigerian Civil War and Congo Crisis of the 1960s—the lyrics mention the years 1966 and 1967, which correspond to the mercenary-led Kisangani Mutinies after the Congo Crisis. He earns a reputation as the greatest Thompson gunner, a reputation that attracts the attention of the CIA. Roland is betrayed and murdered by a fellow mercenary, Van Owen, who blows off his head. Roland becomes the phantom "headless Thompson gunner" and eventually has his revenge, when he catches Van Owen in a Mombasa bar and guns him down. Afterward, he continues "wandering through the night". Other violent conflicts of the succeeding decade are said to be haunted by Roland, including Ireland, Lebanon, Palestine, and Berkeley, California.

The video is of the Congo War. I believe it to be based on 'Mad' Mike Hoare.
In 1964–65 soldier for hire Mike Hoare and a handful of mercenaries defeated a horde of drug-addled communist Simba rebels—and Che Guevara—to reclaim the Congo
In war some cities fall in battle, others by starvation. But in early August 1964 Stanleyville—present-day Kisangani, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo—fell to black magic. From the windows of the U.S. Consulate on Avenue Eisenhower the few Americans who hadn’t evacuated were astounded to see their ostensible protectors in the Armée Nationale Congolaise (ANC) desert their posts and flee. Moments later a bare-chested witch doctor walked up the street, chanting and waving palm branches to sweep the city of government troops—and it worked. Some 1,500 soldiers threw down their rifles, machine guns and mortars and abandoned Stanleyville to a mere 300 warriors armed with little more than spears, bows and hoodoo.

Here's the story of Rhodesia
A land both fair and great
On the Eleventh of November
An Independent State
This was much against the wishes
Of certain governments,
Whose leaders tried to break us down
And make us all repent.

But we're all Rhodesians and we'll fight through thick and thin,
We'll keep our land a free land stop the enemy coming in,
We'll keep them north of the Zambesi, till that river's running dry,
And this mighty land will prosper for Rhodesians never die.

They can send their men to murder
They can shout their words of hate
But the cost of keeping this land free
Can never be too great
For our men and boys are fighting
For the things thay they hold dear
And this land and all its people
Will never disappear

Cause' we're all Rhodesians and we'll fight through thick and thin,
We'll keep our land a free land stop the enemy coming in,
We'll keep them north of the Zambesi, till that river's running dry,
And this mighty land will prosper for Rhodesians never die.

We'll preserve this little nation
For Our Children's children too.
Once you're a Rhodesian
No other land will do.
We will stand tall in the sunshine
With the truth upon our side
And if we have to go alone
We'll go alone with pride.

Cause' we're all Rhodesians and we'll fight through thick and thin,
We'll keep our land a free land stop the enemy coming in,
We'll keep them north of the Zambesi, till that river's running dry,
And this mighty land will prosper for Rhodesians never die.

Yes, we're all Rhodesians and we'll fight through thick and thin,
We'll keep our land a free land stop the enemy coming in,
We'll keep them north of the Zambesi, till that river's running dry,
And this mighty land will prosper for Rhodesians never die.

Because we're all Rhodesians and we'll fight through thick and thin,
We'll keep our land a free land stop the enemy coming in,
We'll keep them north of the Zambesi, till that river's running dry,
And this mighty land will prosper for Rhodesians never die.

If you attended a party in Rhodesia in the 60's you would have definitely heard this song.
"A Swingin' Safari" is an instrumental composed by Bert Kaempfert (using his alias, Bernd Bertie) in 1962. It was recorded by Kaempfert on Polydor Records and released in the United States on Decca Records, but failed to chart. That same year, Billy Vaughn recorded it, and his cover reached number 13 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number five on the Easy Listening chart that summer. On Cash Box, the song peaked at number 11.[1]

The song features a distinctive main theme played on the tin whistle and a trumpet solo by Manfred "Fred" Moch.

The song was the title track of an LP consisting of orchestrations of the South African kwela style of penny-whistle music popular in the 1950s

Dr Peter Hammond describes the dangerous foreign policies of Jimmy Carter and the effects it had on Rhodesia.
Eight countries became Communist while Jimmy Carter was the president of the US. Millions died due to his legacy. Many more were pushed into abject poverty.

This is the SAME Mike Westcott from Leprechaun fame.
He sang 'The Biltong Song'
and 'I'm Just a Shumba Drinker'
and most famously 'It’s a Long Way to Mukumbura '

Journey Into The Unknown (1998):
White South African farmers risk everything to start a new life in the Congo.

The Congo was once the 'bread basket of Africa', and now white South African farmers are selling their homes to build a new life in the DRC. But will this new colony of expats overcome their prejudice and find the land of opportunity they hoped for?

Bloodlands: The complex question of land rights and expropriation has long blighted South Africa. With attacks on white farmers on the rise, many believe the aim is to terrorize them off the land.

As always use your filter.

Much of the farmland of South Africa remains in the hands of the white population. This has been touted as one reason for chronic violence across the country. “There was a lot of blood lying on the floor here and I immediately realized that something is wrong”, says white farmer Jo-An Engelbrecht, recalling the discovery of his parents’ bodies. “Their throats were slit. They were tortured here”. However, some raise doubts whether these murders, and those of many more white farmers, are not simply a product of a wider issue. “We have a real problem with violence and it’s expressed in various different ways”, says Gareth Newham of the Institute of Security Studies, “And then suddenly there’s international attention on the murders of white farmers. It just sort of seems completely disproportionate”. On the other hand, radical politicians are not afraid to offer force as a solution for reclaiming these lands. “The white minority took our land by force”, declares Julius Malema, charismatic leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters. “You must say enough is enough. We are taking the future into our own hands”.

From Journeyman Films here:

Fatherland is a controversial coming-of-age documentary set in the remote South African bush. It follows a group of Afrikaner boys over 9 days at a military camp in the spirit of their fathers before them.

However, what starts out as basic training, fitness and camaraderie soon intensifies as the true nature of the camp is revealed and the boys are forced to question their place in the ‘New South Africa’.

These camps are designed to recreate a sense of Nationalism amongst the next generation of Afrikaaners, though as their training progresses ideological elements emerge revealing the stark realities of their training.

The film follows three particular boys and Col. Franz Jooste -an ex-SADF soldier that fought for his country pre 1994 – and focuses on the conflicting views developed by the boys. Under the strict leadership of their camp leader, they struggle to find their identity within their own communities and within their ‘rainbow’ nation at large. The children are forced to participate in a physically and mentally grueling process that tests their values, beliefs and identities on every level.

"However, we do urge you, brothers, to go on making even greater progress and to make a point of living quietly, attending to your own business and earning your living, just as we told you to, so that you may earn the respect of outsiders and not be dependent on anyone "
(1 Thessalonians 4:10-12)

"Some 27 years after the abolition of apartheid, there are still communities of white South Africans who refuse to mix with their black fellow citizens. It's the case in the town of Orania, where the only language spoken is Afrikaans, the tongue of the first Dutch settlers. In Orania's schools, students are taught an alternative version of history. "

This was one of Vincent James' first interviews on the now defunct Pewtube, when he was just starting Red Elephant.

He is interviewing a young South African living in the US who was helping a South African group go around the US and speak to people about the plight of the Boer.
Apparently recruiting young whites from the ALT-Right to come and fight in South Africa. The whole interview ends up in a bit of a weird place lol

This is an interview with RedElephant interviewing Vanessa Carlyle. Truly fascinating stuff.

In Episode 2 of Genocide South Africa, Vince sat down with Karin Smith to talk about the atrocities that are happening in South Africa with regards to the killing of the white farmers by the African National Congress and the intentional starving of white men, women and children by the African government.

Karin Smith shows a side we have never seen or heard before due to the media suppressing most of these stories. Not only the American media but the South African media as well. With South Africa being a communist country, most citizens fear for their lives to speak out about what is happening.

Fatherland: The "terrifying extremist" groups preparing for race war in South Africa

In rural South Africa the far-right Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB) is training thousands of white youth for a war between the races with military-style bootcamps where the Hunger Games meets Hitler Youth.

"God, our people, and Fatherland". This, according to the Bernard family, is what the AWB stands for. A deeply religious family, they form part of the small but determined minority of Afrikaner people who still wear their apartheid-era politics on their sleeve. Now for the first time their 15-year-old son Sparky will attend Kommando core, an AWB 'endurance' camp for white youngsters. By day, the young attendees are pushed to their physical limits, while by night they are subjected to lectures on white supremacy, sowing the seeds of old hatreds in a new generation. "Burn, bastard burn", they chant as they set alight the South African flag.

Malema denying White Genocide in South Africa

Eugene Terre'Blanche and betrayal in Bophuthatswana.
The 1994 Bophuthatswana coup d'état was a popular uprising against, and subsequent removal of, Lucas Mangope's regime in Bophuthatswana; a South African tribal homeland installed during apartheid. The coup d'état - which was formally completed by the South African Defence Force on March 12 - resulted from wildcat strikes, a wave of support for the African National Congress then sweeping the territory, mutiny in the armed services, and Mangope's refusal to participate in general elections. It has been remembered largely for the public shooting of three right-wing Afrikaners by a black officer of the Bophuthatswana Police. This proved to be a public relations disaster for the far right and demoralised Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging militants hoping to preserve white minority rule.

Controversial land reforms in South Africa are raising tensions as the nation's white minority arm themselves to defend their farms against government seizures. One America's Kristian Rouz has the story.

He never said he loved her
She never said she cared
He’s out on the ship somewhere
And she’s still running scared
She never thought to ask him
And he never thought to say
Now they’re both out somewhere looking for
The love that got away
She changed her name to Venus
He got a job in Spain
And she’s living alone in Denver
With a cat that has no name
And once he though he saw her
In a Spanish Cabaret
But it was just another stand-in for
The love that got away
And it’s no fun being alone
And she’d sell her soul for someone to call her own
He’s been waiting for a reason to head for home
And it’s no fun, with no one
It’s no fun being alone
He never Said he loved her
And she never said she cared
So they lived alone and never knew the life they might have shared
She never thought to ask him
And he never thought to say
Now they’d gladly trade their freedom for the love that got away
And it’s no fun being alone
And she’d sell her soul for someone to call her own
He’s been waiting for a reason to head for home
And it’s no fun, with no one
It’s no fun being alone

The body of Hannah Cornelius was discovered on Saturday morning just outside Stellenbosch. The 21-year-old was in the car with a friend when she was hijacked on Bird Street. Gang raped and then her head smashed in. Carjacked in broad day light off the street by four Blacks just to rape.

Biltong is a form of dried, cured meat that originated in Southern African countries.Various types of meat are used to produce it, ranging from beef and game meats to fillets of meat cut into strips following the grain of the muscle, or flat pieces sliced across the grain. It is related to beef jerky in that they are both spiced, dried meats; however, the typical ingredients, taste and production processes may differ.

The word biltong is from the Dutch bil ("buttock”") and tong ("strip" or "tongue").

When the dust of the day had parched your throat, nothing restored your faith in your fellow man faster than downing a few ice cold 'chiboolies'. Shumba Drinkers at the time were known to "drink a dozen a day.

Remember Rhodesia - Help me keep it alive ! I'm aiming to be your one-stop Rhodesia shop.

First Angola (the Portuguese were murdered en-masse, many cut in half vertically in saw mills) and then Mozambique went, then Zambia and Rhodesia and finally South Africa. It's the story of a colonial country that was built from dust into the bread basket of Africa, promised dominion (like New Zealand) by Britain if it federated (which it did) and then denied it - unless it gave the country one man one vote. The only problem was that 70% of the country was still in the neolithic-bronze age. They were denied Dominion by Britain and so like America, they declared their Independence. The Western Nations plunged them into total 100% Sanctions for claiming independence. Worse sanctions than Iraq ever had. Only South Africa, France and Portugal supported them. At the same time Russia and China trained and armed rebels in the countries around them and the rebels attacked.

They held on against incredible odds and were always victorious. The never lost one battle EVER. They acquiesced to one man one vote with ONE stipulation. NO Communist majority. Small concession right ? During their second election, the populace was terrorized to vote for the Communists and Robert Mugabe took over. That was 39 years ago. Mugabe was the Dictator for 37 years, until November 2017. Meanwhile he stole all the white farms and plunged the country into starvation after killing 10's of thousands of Blacks and printed so much money that a loaf of bread cost several quadrillion dollars. That obviously killed anyone's life savings.

Now South Africa. When will we learn to stick together ?
