The creeping spectre of “white genocide”. The conspiracy theory that was once contained to South Africa is spreading worldwide.
Founded in 2016, and with more than 186,000 members, #Afriforum focuses on the preservation of #Afrikaner rights. Two of its leaders are currently on tour in the U.S. — first stop Texas — campaigning to raise awareness about what they describe as “racist theft” (otherwise known as land expropriation), and farm murders. Pieter Du Toit, the editor-in-chief for HuffPost South Africa, noted earlier this month that while the group has not made public the list of people or media outlets they are meeting with, the issues they are raising have recently been taken up by #Ann_Coulter and #Alex_Jones.
