I’m about to travel to a war zone:
I'm going there to report on the racial war waged by black extremists who are systematically murdering white farmers.
The mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about it. They only have one narrative for South Africa: that whites are the racists who enforced apartheid.
Apartheid ended more than 25 years ago, and that’s a good thing.
But today's anti-white racism and sadistic violence is just as evil.
What's behind it — is it just random violence, or is it part of a political agenda?
I want to talk to victims — and to the perpetrators, if I can.
So I’m going South Africa for nearly two weeks.
I'll file written columns, and daily video updates, at HopkinsWorld.com.
When we're finished, The Rebel will also produce a full-length documentary — the first of its kind on this subject.
There were nearly 20,000 murders in South Africa last year, and as many attempted murders. So we have to be careful.
My cameraman and I will be accompanied by a former police officer with extensive experience in hostile environments, as well as a local security expert.
That kind of security is expensive, so we’re saving money in other ways, by flying economy. Our plane tickets are just US$1,000 each.
Hotel rooms are about US$100 a night, for each of us. We’ll probably spend close to a thousand dollars in meals for two weeks. And we’re renting documentary-quality film equipment.
But, as I said, the biggest expense is security:
It comes to £16,000 — that’s over US$23,000.
Our total budget comes to more than US$30,000, or £21,000. That would be a rounding error for the BBC, or even the CBC. But for us? It's a lot of money.
Not one dollar is for me, by the way. It’s all to cover those costs. (Any extra you help us raise will finance future investigative reporting missions like this one.)
Let me be your eyes and ears in South Africa — and I’ll give you a daily report. Without the biased, mainstream media filter.
Thank you so much — and watch for my first report!
