SHOCK: South Africa Detained Me at Airport Because of My Journalism

It’s an uncomfortable subject that the mainstream media avoids because it’s contrary to the “official” narrative that only whites can be racist, especially in the country that once had Apartheid laws.
The story must be told.
But the South African government is trying to censor me.
On my way back home, South Africa’s border guards ordered that I be detained at the airport.
They obviously missed me coming into the country. But they “caught” me trying to leave.
They detained me under section 29(1)(d) of South Africa’s Immigration Act — which bans:
“A member of or adherent to an association or organisation advocating the practice of racial hatred or social violence.”
But I am a member of no such organization and I deplore both racism and violence. In fact, that’s what I was doing in South Africa: exposing the racial hatred and social violence being directed against white farmers.
In the end, the border police let me go — but it was a reminder that South Africa is losing its civil liberties, especially the ability to criticize the governing ANC party or its extremist cousin, the EFF.
South Africa won’t lift a finger to stop violence — but they’ll try to arrest a journalist who exposes it.
I’m free now. And I managed to smuggle my documentary film footage out of the country.

And when our major documentary is done, you’ll see exactly what the South African government didn’t want you to see.
P.S. This documentary, and my trip to South Africa, is 100 per cent independent — which means it has to be 100% crowdfunded. Please help us cover our costs: everything from our flights to our camera gear to our security. The government of South Africa will hate you for it, but I’d be grateful — and so will the farmers whose stories I’ll tell. Please click here to help.
P.P.S. The mainstream media are laughing at the fact that I was detained by South African police. Not only do they not want to cover this story, they want anyone who does to be punished. Isn’t that another reason why my documentary must be made? Please click here to help.
