Our South African TV aired some fake news spouted by Fox News.
According to Fox our constitution has been amended and white owned farm expropriation similar to Zimbabwe has begun.
Donald Trump reacted to this as if it was the truth. As a world leader surely he should check his facts?

The truth is that there is a process underway to amend our constitution to allow for farm expropriation without compensation to the owner. In other words taking the land without paying for it. This is still some months away.

At the moment the noises are that this will happen only to unproductive land etc....but who knows???

I and others are grateful for America's reaction and we even support the fake news because we believe ultimately we will become like Zimbabwe.
However, if the correct statements are made by Fox news it will carry far more weight and credibility then the fake news.

In Soviet America they would just have the tax assessor seize the property, claiming you won't be able to pay the taxes. They don't, here, because banks want their interest and government wants taxes. If government owned all the land, those revenue streams would dry up and the banks would change the government.

Sounds like there are a few in power who understand they're better off talking about seizing farms and not actually doing it, if they want to have food to eat. Politicians need someone to blame and incite hatred for so their followers don't start hating them. 

There are farmers in the US who will help bring over South Africans for farm labor. There is an awful lot of land in the US that isn't used for anything, except maybe growing trees. Heads up!

Yeah good for Fox jumping the gun, maybe Trumps/America’s reaction will effect the proposed admendment in a positive way. Prays out to y’all in SA.

While the fake news may be off in some details, the REAL STORY is that the Government has started a campaign of discrimination against a race of people and is seizing there property. This has happened before in history and it didn't end well.

Best I can tell, the campaign started quite some time ago and landowners have been trying to dump their land and get the hell out for a little while now.

You are right that it will not end well.  This is a process that is eerily similar to what happened in the 1920s in Soviet Russia.

As far as money goes, South Africa is fundraising abroad and will eventually become a Chinese puppet state.

I understand that the ANC is going to review their bill and maybe fix it up a little after Trump putting them down on the Internet....
