Hoewel die onderstaande brief vir nasionaliste op die oog af mag lyk asof die engelse begin lig sien, is daar tog duidelike tekens van waansin in die hooghartige teenstrydighede wat in die brief na vore kom.
Die rassisme waarvan die Afrikanervolk deur veral die engelse wêreld beskuldig word, slaan hier so duidelik deur in die enkele voorval van swart antagonisme waaraan die Engelse by Oxford blootgestel is, ( en dit is maar net die begin!), dat daar geen twyfel kan bestaan dat die aanklag teen die beleid van die Afrikanervolk ‘n blote versinsel was vir politieke doeleindes nie.
Brexit mag ook baie ander bykomende oorsake hê, wat egter soos ‘n paal bo water staan is dat die toestroming van volksvreemdes se effek, op presies dieselfde wyse ervaar word as wat die Afrikaner beleef het. Die politieke maatreel van afsonderlike ontwikkeling wat ons getref het om die inheemse volke se identiteit te beskerm, het egter die engelse se slaansak geword wat hulle nou begin blootlê.
Oxford : Rhodes must fall
This letter is a response from Oxford to Black Students attending as Rhodes Scholars to remove the statue of Oxford Benefactor, Cecil Rhodes.

Subject: OXFORD - THE FIGHTBACK HAS BEGUN
Interestingly, Chris Patten (Lord Patten of Barnes), The Chancellor of Oxford University, was on the Today Program on BBC Radio 4 yesterday on precisely the same topic. The Daily Telegraph headline yesterday was "Oxford will not rewrite history". Patten commented -" Education is not indoctrination." Our history is not a blank page, on which we can write our own version of what it should have been according to our contemporary views and prejudice
"³Dear Scrotty Students,
Cecil Rhodes¹s generous bequest has contributed greatly to the comfort and well being of many generations of Oxford students a good many of them, dare we say it, better, brighter and more deserving than you. This does not necessarily mean we approve of everything Rhodes did in his lifetime but then we don¹t have to. Cecil Rhodes died over a century ago. Autres temps, autres moeurs. If you don¹t understand what this means and it would not remotely surprise us, if that were the case then we really think you should ask yourself the question: ³Why am I at Oxford. let us remind you, is the world¹s second oldest extant university.
Scholars have been studying here since at least the 11th century. We¹ve played a major part in the invention of Western civilization, from the 12th century intellectual renaissance through the Enlightenment and beyond. Our alumni include William of Ockham, Roger Bacon, William Tyndale, John Donne, Sir Walter Raleigh, Erasmus, Sir Christopher Wren, William Penn, Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA), Samuel Johnson, Robert Hooke, William Morris, Oscar Wilde, Emily Davison, Cardinal Newman, Julie Cocks. We¹re a big deal. And most of the people privileged to come and study here are conscious of what a big deal we are. Oxford is their alma mater their dear mother and they respect and revere her accordingly.
And what were your ancestors doing in that period? Living in mud huts, mainly. Sure we¹ll concede you the short lived Southern African civilization of Great Zimbabwe. But let¹s be brutally honest here. The contribution of the Bantu tribes to modern civilization has been as near as damn it to zilch. You¹ll probably say that¹s ³racist². But it¹s what we here at Oxford prefer to call ³true.² Perhaps, the rules are different at other universities. In fact, we know things are different at other universities. We¹ve watched with horror at what has been happening across the pond from the University of Missouri to the University of Virginia and even to revered institutions like Harvard and Yale: the ³safe spaces²; the #blacklivesmatter; the creeping cultural relativism; the stifling political correctness; what Allan Bloom rightly called ³the closing of the American mind².
At Oxford however, we will always prefer facts and free, open debate to petty grievance-mongering, identity politics and empty sloganeering. The day we cease to do so is the day we lose the right to call ourselves the world¹s greatest university. Of course, you are perfectly within your rights to squander your time at Oxford on silly, vexatious, single-issue political campaigns. (Though it does make us wonder how stringent the vetting procedure is these days for Rhodes scholarships and even more so, for Mandela Rhodes scholarships).
We are well used to seeing undergraduates or, in your case postgraduates, making idiots of themselves. Just don¹t expect us to indulge your idiocy, let alone genuflect before it.
You may be black ³BME ( Black and Minority Ethnic)² as the grisly modern terminology has it but we are colour blind. We have been educating gifted undergraduates from our former colonies, our Empire, our Commonwealth and beyond for many generations. We do not discriminate over sex, race, colour or creed. We do, however, discriminate according to intellect.
That means, inter alia, that when our undergrads or postgrads come up with fatuous ideas, we don¹t pat them on the back, give them a red rosette and say: ³Ooh, you¹re black and you come from South Africa.
What a clever chap you are! No. We prefer to see the quality of those ideas tested in the crucible of public debate. That¹s another key part of the Oxford intellectual tradition you see; you can argue any damn thing you like; but you need to be able to justify it with facts and logic otherwise your idea is worthless. This ludicrous notion you have that a bronze statue of Cecil Rhodes should be removed from Oriel College, because it¹s symbolic of ³institutional racism² and ³white slavery². Well even if it is which we dispute so bloody what? Any undergraduate so feeble-minded that they can¹t pass a bronze statue without having their ³safe space² violated really does not deserve to be here. And besides, if we were to remove Rhodes¹s statue on the premise that his life wasn¹t blemish-free, where would we stop?
As one of our alumni Dan Hannan has pointed out, Oriel¹s other benefactors include two kings so awful Edward II and Charles I that their subjects had them killed. The college opposite Christ Church was built by a murderous, thieving bully, who bumped off two of his wives. Thomas Jefferson kept slaves: does that invalidate the US Constitution? Winston Churchill had unenlightened views about Muslims and India: was he then the wrong man to lead Britain in the war? Actually, we¹ll go further than that. Your Rhodes Must Fall campaign is not merely fatuous; but ugly, vandalistic and dangerous. We agree with Oxford historian R W Johnson that what you are trying to do here is no different from what ISIS and the Al-Qaeda have been doing to artifacts in places like Mali and Syria. You are murdering history.
And who are you, anyway, to be lecturing Oxford University on how it should order its affairs? Your #rhodesmustfall campaign, we understand, originates in South Africa and was initiated by a black activist, who told one of his lecturers ³whites have to be killed. One of you Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh is the privileged son of a rich politician and a member of a party, whose slogan is ³Kill the Boer; Kill the Farmer; another of you, Ntokozo Qwabe, who is only in Oxford as a beneficiary of a Rhodes scholarship, has boasted about the need for ³socially conscious black
students² to ³dominate white universities, and do so ruthlessly and decisively!" Great. That¹s just what Oxford University needs. Some cultural enrichment from the land of Winnie Mandela, burning tire necklaces, an AIDS epidemic almost entirely the result of government indifference and ignorance, one of the world¹s highest per capita murder rates, stitutionalized corruption, tribal politics, anti-white racism and a collapsing economy.
Please name which of the above items you think will enhance the lives of the 22,000 students studying here at Oxford. And then, please explain what it is that makes your attention grabbing campaign to remove a listed statue from an Oxford college more urgent, more deserving than the desire of probably at least 20,000 of those 22,000 students to enjoy their time here unencumbered by the irritation of spoiled, ungrateful little tossers on scholarships, which they clearly don¹t merit using racial politics and cheap guilt-tripping to ruin the life and
fabric of our beloved university.
Understand us and understand this clearly: you have everything to learn from us; we have nothing to learn from you.
Oriel College, Oxford
