The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) is a national institution established to support constitutional democracy. In its mandate, the organisation claim to be committed to promoting respect for, observance of and protection of human rights for everyone without fear or favour.

After filing hundreds of complaints about hate speech, extortion, intimidation and terrorism the SAHRC has failed miserably to demonstrated that minorities in South Africa have any rights at all. Businesses may be extorted, trashed and petrol-bombed with impunity, children and schools may be intimidated by fascist political parties and hate speech towards minorities are quite acceptable – even by the President.

As long as the victims are part of a minority group, human rights violations are observed with folded arms.

The SAHRC speak out on law enforcement when thousands of armed EFF supporters descended on a school in Brackenfell busy writing exams. The protest by the EF was against the children for having arranged a private party attended by only white and mixed-race children. Notice how the spokesperson of the SAHRC has nothing to say about the safety and wellbeing of the children, parents, teachers or school. The SAHRC sent observers to the protest to ensure the rights of political parties to intimidate children is not impeded in any way.


We take a look at a recent report by Ernst Roets of Afriforum on hate speech.

AfriForum recently announced that it is now officially recognized by the UN as a non-governmental organization with special advisory status. This status offers AfriForum various opportunities and privileges to continue the organisation’s work on a larger scale in the facilities of the UN.

The breakthrough was made despite the fact that the South African government has been actively working for years to deprive AfriForum of these opportunities.

One of the privileges associated with special advisory status is that AfriForum can make written and even oral submissions on several of the UN’s forums on issues that concern the organization.

The least of the indictments against the SAHRC is their failure to curb hate speech. Consider this, to this day the SAHRC has not released a single press release or voiced any concerns about the persistent killing, rape and torture of minorities.

With over half a million people murdered under ANC rule the right to live is apparently a trivial issue.
