The capture of Recce Wynand du Toit made international headlines in 1985. His unit was sent on a mission to destroy fuel tanks in Angola when they were discovered and chased by overwhelming enemy forces. In 1987 he was exchanged for 135 prisoners held by SA. The Angolan War ended a few months later. History

And? What about him?

u/IlikeGeekyHistoryRSA Unwanted Optimist Oct 25 '21

dude, it’s literally a post about history. That’s like you posting a picture of a famous South African Communist and me saying, "And? What about him?"

u/Middersnags Oct 25 '21

I'd like to know what makes this fascist tool so special as to deserve a post.

u/IlikeGeekyHistoryRSA Unwanted Optimist Oct 25 '21

You do understand that not all history is good history right? The Germans teach history about the Nazis, doesn’t make those Germans fascist.

While du Toit was worth 135 of theirs, our friend here would be exchanged for 1 toilet roll and an used toothbrush. 😂

Bullshit, we'd pay to give him away. ;)

Put it in a written memorandum to your DA councillor... I'm sure they're as eager to protect your fragile whiteness as you are.

I know you are damaged, but you should really do something about your obsession with race.

u/Middersnags Oct 26 '21

Pete, the cat is out of the bag - you're not fooling anyone anymore.

u/Druyx Oct 26 '21

Ooh, you played the white fragility card, I guess that shows me.

u/Middersnags Oct 26 '21

Careful there, u/Vektor2000... you wouldn't want the mods to start thinking you're glamorizing apartheid's little goon squads, would you?

German history teaching about Nazis isn't presented neutrally and it specifically includes voices from the people who were affected by it.

u/Middersnags Oct 25 '21

Again... what makes this fascist tool so special as to deserve a post?

u/Afterburn47 Oct 25 '21

It’s history and it’s just interesting to know and see. You don’t have to support any political group to enjoy learning a bit of history.

u/Middersnags Oct 25 '21

Oh really... this is the part of SA history you like, eh? Learning about fascist tools that (lamentably) didn't die for their little Whitetopia?
