Botha's Speech 1985

Pieter Willem Botha (January 12, 1916 – October 31, 2006), he was commonly known as "PW" and Die Groot Krokodil (Afrikaans for "The Big Crocodile"), was prime minister of South Africa from 1978 to 1984 and state president from 1984 to 1989. Botha was a long-time supporter of South Africa's National Party and a staunch advocate of racial segregation and the apartheid system; however, he engineered a loosening of some of the government's most stringent racial policies toward the end of his career.



Botha speech 1985:

THE FOLLOWING is a speech made by former South African President P.W.
Botha to his Cabinet.
"Pretoria has been made by the White mind for the White man. We are not obliged even the least to try to prove to anybody and to the Blacks that we are superior people. We have demonstrated that to the Blacks in a thousand and one ways. The Republic of South Africa that we know of today has not been created by wishful thinking. We have created it at the expense of intelligence, sweat and blood. Were they Afrikaners who tried to eliminate the Australian Aborigines? Are they Afrikaners who discriminate against Blacks and call them Nigge*rs in the States? Were they Afrikaners who started the slave trade? Where is the Black man appreciated? England discriminates against its Black and their "Sus" law is out to discipline the Blacks. Canada, France, Russia, and Japan all play their discrimination too. Why in the hell then is so much noise made about us? Why are they biased against us? I am simply trying to prove to you all that there is nothing unusual we are doing that the so called civilized worlds are not doing. We are simply an honest people who have come out aloud with a clear philosophy of how we want to live our own White life.

We do not pretend like other Whites that we like Blacks. The fact that, Blacks look like human beings and act like human beings do not necessarily make them sensible human beings. Hedgehogs are not porcupines and lizards are not crocodiles simply because they look alike. If God wanted us to be equal to the Blacks, he would have
created> us all of a uniform colour and intellect. But he created us
differently: Whites, Blacks, Yellow, Rulers and the ruled.
Intellectually, we are superior to the Blacks; that has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt over the years. I believe that the Afrikaner is an honest, God fearing person, who has demonstrated practically the right way of being. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that behind the scenes, Europe, America, Canada, Australia-and all others are behind us in spite of what they say. For diplomatic relations, we all know what language should be used and where. To prove my point, Comrades, does anyone of you know a White country without an investment or interest in South Africa? Who buys our gold? Who buys our diamonds? Who trades with us? Who is helping us develop other nuclear weapon? The very truth is that we are their people and they are our people. It's a big secret. The strength of our economy is backed by America, Britain, Germany. It is our strong conviction, therefore, that the Black is the raw material for the White man. So Brothers and Sisters, let us join hands together to fight against this Black devil. I appeal to all Afrikaners to come out with any creative means of fighting this war. Surely God cannot forsake his own people whom we are. By now every one of us has seen it practically that the Blacks cannot rule themselves. Give them guns and they will kill each other. They are good in nothing else but making noise, dancing, marrying many wives and indulging in sex. Let us all accept that the Black man is the symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness and emotional incompetence. Isn't it plausible? therefore that the White man is created to rule the Black man? Come to think of what would happen one day if you woke up and on the throne sat a Kaff*ir! Can you imagine what would happen to our women? Does anyone of you believe that the Blacks can rule this country?

Hence, we have good reasons to let them all-the Mandelas-rot in prison, and I think we should be commended for having kept them alive in spite of what we have at hand with which to finish them off. I wish to announce a number of new strategies that should be put to use to destroy this Black bug. We should now make use of the chemical weapon. Priority number one, we should not by all means allow any more increases of the Black population lest we be choked very soon. I have exciting news that our scientists have come with an efficient stuff. I am sending out more researchers to the field to identify as many venues as possible where the chemical weapons could be employed to combat any further population increases. The hospital is a very strategic opening, for example and should be fully utilized. The food supply channel should be used. We have eveloped excellent slow killing poisons and fertility destroyers.
Our only fear is in case such stuff came in! ! to their hands as they are bound to start using it against us if you care to think of the many Blacks working for us in our homes.

However, we are doing the best we can to make sure that the stuff remains strictly in our hands. Secondly, most Blacks are vulnerable to money inducements. I have set aside a special fund to exploit this venue. The old trick of divide and rule is still very valid today. Our experts should work day and night to set the Black man against his fellowman. His inferior sense of morals can be exploited beautifully.
And here is a creature that lacks foresight. There is a need for us to combat him in long term projections that he cannot suspect. The average Black does not plan his life beyond a year: that stance, for example,should be exploited. My special department is already working round the clock to come out with a long-term operation blueprint. I am also sending a special request to all Afrikaner mothers to double their birth rate. It may be necessary too to set up a population boom industry by putting up centres where we employ and support fully White young men and women to produce children for the nation.
We are also investigating the merit of uterus rentals as a possible means of speeding up the growth of our population through surrogate mothers.

For the time being, we should also engage a higher gear to make sure that Black men are separated from their women and fines imposed upon married wives who bear illegitimate children.

I have a committee working on finding better methods of inciting Blacks against each other and encouraging murders among themselves. Murder cases among Blacks should bear very little punishment in order to encourage them.

My scientists have come up with a drug that could be smuggled into their brews to effect slow poisoning results and fertility destruction.
Working through drinks and manufacturing of soft drinks geared to the Blacks, could promote the channels of reducing their population. Ours is not a war that we can use the atomic bomb to destroy the Blacks, so we must use our intelligence to effect this. The person-to-person encounter can be very effective.

As the records show that the Black man is dying to go to bed with the White woman, here is our unique opportunity. Our Sex Mercenary Squad should go out and camouflage with Apartheid Fighters while doing their operations quietly administering slow killing poison and fertility destroyers to those Blacks they thus befriend.
We are modifying the Sex Mercenary Squad by introducing White men who should go for the militant Black woman and any other vulnerable Black woman. We have received a new supply of prostitutes from Europe and America who are desperate and too keen to take up the appointments.

My latest appeal is that the maternity hospital operations should be intensified. We are not paying those people to help bring Black babies to this world but to eliminate them on the very delivery moment. If this department worked very efficiently, a great deal could be achieved.

My Government has set aside a special fund for erecting more covert hospitals and clinics to promote this programme. Money can do anything for you. So while we have it, we should make the best use of it. In the meantime my beloved White citizens, do not take to heart what the world says, and don't be ashamed of being called racists. I do not mind being called the architect and King of Apartheid. I shall not become a monkey simply because someone has called me a monkey. I will still remain your bright star...His Excellency B

He didn't do much to ease apartheid in South Africa, but what Botha did do was allow black trade unions.

Chim said...

I do not believe that this speech was really made by P.W. Botha. Why has it taken so long to be made public? While the contents of this "speech" are offensive, somehow they give us a picture of how other people think of us. We have not done enough to improve our countries. In other countries where the colonial governments left strong econony and beautiful infrasture things have gotten worse since power was give to the natives.

I do not believe that a black man is inferior, unfortunately we seem to accept this proposition in many ways. It's time we show the world that we are capable of doing things for ourselves.

Bhekuzulu Terence said...

If you dig around the net a little bit, you'll find that this is in fact a hoax.

As much as I was never a great fan of the man, the speech seemed way too volatile to have only surfaced now and in that respect I definitely agree with chim.

GODISLORD said...

Thank goodness that we exist because of our creator and not because of idiots in power. The people of color are beautiful and so many wish to destroy the hearts of these wonderful people. I understand that people with these visions have these only because they are inferior to a beautiful black man, or their strength that outshines all others. All of those words may just be said to scare us but as the bible teaches, "he is greater that's in me than he that is in the world." We fear no one but our creator and any tactics to kill us as a people only empowers us to live through whatever is put to destroy us and continue in our prosperity because we do not believe in defeat, we live to fight and fight hard. That is why the black man survived the horrors of their captors. And today black man is president. History has proven this to the world. YOU cannot kill black man because no weapons formed against us shall prosper.

Ouch, I really dont know y it took so long to be published, however it will be of stupidity to judge against this speech provided there is no enough subsidiary claim to suppose it true. For me as a black man, I cant be perturbed by this partial thruth, but will make sure that I prove my interligence to the world by doing something positive

nobuntu said...

if the speech is so called "untrue", then please answer me on "why the apartheid system existed & still exists in our country?" you have to be black and live(d) in South Africa to know that this speech is a fact! if Mandela & his comdrades didn't succeed, what do you think would have happened to all us blacks? millions would be dead, and the alive ones would all be maids & slaves- and we'd all be speaking Afrikaans and have forgotten about out ethnic cultures & our identity! its more like saying "Schindler's List" didn't happen. fact is it did- & 10million INNOCENT Jews died!

so please!!!!!!!!!! we know the truth about the Afrikaners! Thank God we can today enjoy walking in the streets in peace and without having the fear of being killed....JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE BLACK!& we have freedom to be who we WANT to be and the right TO EDUCATION!!

May he rest in peace! Im sure him & Terreblanch have hooked up underground!I hope they don't brainwash Lolly Jackson!

wouter said...

interesting that this version of his speech was made public incidentally only 2 days after he passed away - after waiting 21 years - why was it timed in this manner - 3 days earlier and himself could have confirmed its validity???

Allen Simms said...

OH MY GOD, is he speaking of the AIDs virus??

Grimm. said...

WHETHER IT'S TRUE OR NOT LET'S LEAVE THE PAST BECAUSE WE CANNOT CHANGE IT WE MUST FOCUS ON THE FUTURE AND LET'S FORGIVE EACH OTHER SO THAT WE CAN UNITE AS A NATION, WHITE OR BLACK WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS.

This is proof that the Hiv/Aids Virus was Made just to kill us black people.. Cause after 1994 they said "there is a Virus going around go to clinics/hospitals" so it could have happened that they injected the virus in people doing that time...

Lucas Mogapi said...

its very disturbing to read this speech bt my heart goes to da same brotheren who still need to wake up to make right choices the best medicine to end and prove other whites wrong is to make it no matter what we are no longer the prison of our past bt the piooners of our future.pastor lucas mogapi vinger
