Australia Considers Emergency Visas for White South African Farmers
South Africa‚Äôs foreign ministry has fired back against an Australian proposal to grant emergency visas to white South African farmers, after a leading Australian politician said the group needed protection in a ‚Äúcivilized country.‚ÄĚ
White farmers ‚Äúdeserve special protection,‚ÄĚ Peter Dutton, Australia‚Äôs home affairs minister, who oversees immigration, said in an interview on Wednesday, amid a debate in South Africa over redistributing white-owned land to black citizens.
‚ÄúI think these people deserve special attention and we‚Äôre certainly applying that special attention now,‚ÄĚ said Mr. Dutton, who proposed offering white farmers expedited visas to resettle in Australia on humanitarian grounds....
Rabbit proof fence was a film produced by a rabid leftie who made the story out to be something it wasn't. At the first screening, one of the children shown in the movie was there (as an adult) and she said "thats not true, thats not what happened" so she was shuffled off and the lefties got their hit piece. I don't know how many people bothered to watch an obviously emotive lie of a film but it sure got promoted a LOT at great cost plus all the leftie tv and radio stations pushed it hard.
Theres no doubt that the left will fund things to push a narrative and then progress on from there as if the previous film/book was factual.
All that does is seperate us.
Sadly few Black African Christians ever get here because muslims throw them off the boats in open sea.

Australia has lots of Rhodesians and South Africans, as did New Zealand, and many have families back at their homeland who are trapped as they don't meet the criteria to get into Australia especially. I have heard shocking stories of what has happened to women who are supposedly safe in secure housing compounds and yet they still can't get out of the country. Terrible situation.
Australia is down under the Mason-Dixie line isn't it.
Will they go through the "Rabbit-Proof Fence", like the two mixed race Aboriginal girls had to do? Are their still Methodists there?

ABC AU News wrote: Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has caused a diplomatic row with South Africa after declaring white farmers in the country were facing "horrific circumstances" and needed protection from a "civilised country".
While the issue has hit the national headlines this week, West Australian Liberals have been agitating behind the scenes for months and last year passed a motion at the party's state council calling on the Federal Government to "resettle persecuted European minorities" in South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Probably slightly different look at the problem from an Australian view.
