South Africa Enters “Second Phase” of Communist Revolution

After another electoral victory in South Africa, the ruling African National Congress (ANC)-South African Communist Party (SACP) regime plans to pursue what it calls the “radical second phase” of its ongoing revolution.

Among other elements, the SACP announced in a statement that the plot involves confiscating private property and businesses as part of “the strategic transformation of the ownership and control function of key commanding heights of the economy.” Some analysts are now sounding the alarm, but it may be too little too late.

As The New American magazine and other sources have documented extensively, South Africa is literally on the verge of becoming a failed state under the rule of a full-blown Marxist-Leninist regime. If the ruling SACP-ANC alliance gets its way, analysts say the once-wealthy nation may end up looking like its wretched neighbor Zimbabwe, run into the ground by mass-murdering Marxist despot Robert Mugabe and his minions. The embattled European-descent South African minority, too, faces perilous times ahead as growing genocide warnings go unreported, unheeded, and ignored.

While the international and even domestic press has been virtually silent on the dangerous acceleration of “revolution” in South Africa, the Communist Party has been largely open about its scheming. In fact, earlier this month, the party’s Central Committee even published a statement entitled “How the radical Second Phase must be pursued.” The document outlined the communist agenda for South Africa and celebrated the party’s ongoing success in dismantling the remaining vestiges of South African liberty and markets.

“Long ignored as an irrelevant ‘scare story,’ the ‘Red danger’ (rooi gevvar) is not just back — it is in control. It never disappeared,” explained Frans Cronje, chief of the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR). ANC members of Parliament, Cronje continued in his analysis, are being given their instructions and point of view from the party headquarters at the Luthuli-house, where former SACP Secretary General Gwede Mantashe is in charge.

The communists “sit quietly behind the throne, with enormous influence on the line of thought in the ANC,” Cronje continued in his Rapport column following the South African election. “Such influence also makes sense from a historical point of view, because the communists have long been serving as the generator of ideas in the ANC. This last year shows how huge this influence has become.”

Numerous examples of the SACP role in policy were cited by the SAIRR chief. Among them: proposals for even more draconian race-driven affirmative action, proposed jail sentences for violations of “Black Economic Empowerment” schemes, the cancelling of investment agreements with 15 Western countries, a plot to allow government to seize any commercial property without compensation, a ploy to force farmers to surrender 50 percent of their land, the proposed expropriation of parts of the private-security sector, the introduction of legislation to expropriate certain oil and gas investments, and more.

“All this is aimed at government takeover and control,” Cronje noted.
