Boer Mason Traitors and Their Luxurious treatment in Concentration Camps 

Mason AA Cooper had the nerve to write in his book, ‘The Freemasons of South Africa,’ “The [concentration] camps were inspected by a Boer officer, Captain Malan, delegated for this purpose by General Ben Viljoen.  [Both were masons!]  Captain Malan declared himself entirely satisfied with the arrangements made for the women and children...  Nevertheless, the humane politics on this subject adopted by the English troops were misinterpreted, giving rise to slander.  Lord Kitchener has just informed [mason] General Louis Botha that all the women and children in the camps… will be sent to the general quarters of the Boers... [This special treatment was for mason families, not the families of non-masons, who died like flies in the camps!]  So the allegations that were made about the English saying that the [masonic] ‘noble and generous traditions have not been followed’ and that ‘methods of war which are no longer of our epoch’ constitute a serious, false exposé, which cannot in any way be proved by the existing facts.  His royal Highness guarantees the truth of the facts contained in this answer…” 

These unscrupulous lies expose the malicious, murderous spirit of ‘noble’ masonry and the clandestine forces, which plan political takeovers, wars and genocide without anyone knowing! 

The families of mason Afrikaners were treated “satisfactorily,” [read about Stockholm Syndrome among these holocaust survivors,] but the families of loyal Afrikaners and Africans suffered, starved, died, and the rest remained imprisoned in the death camps until after the war.

The ungodly temples of masonic lodges are made of money.  Their altars, mocking the God of the Bible, are cast in gold. Right through history, they wrote their masonic doctrines with golden, diamond-tipped pens, dipped in a river of innocent human and animal blood.

Mason Marthinus Wessel Pretorius, son of the Voortrekker leader, Andries Pretorius, (initiated at De Goede Hoop Lodge,) became President of the Republic of the Orange Free State in 1860.  Mason Sir Christoffel Brand, Speaker of the first Cape Legislative Assembly and editor of De Zuid-Afrikaan, was deputy Grand Master National of Lodge de Goede Hoop in 1847.  In 1861, he embarked on “missionary” travels through South Africa to encourage conversion to the masonic, Mary Worshipping, Dutch Reformed religion

Most of the gullible Afrikaner nation unknowingly accepted this blend of Calvinist Mary-worship masonry as Biblical doctrine.  Mason Jan Brand, Sir Christoffel’s son, (from Lodge Unie,) became President of the Republic of the Free State in 1865.  Voortrekker leader Piet Retief, so prominently represented in the Voortrekker Monument, was another passionate mason.  He frequently mentioned the “All-seeing, Higher Being,” the Lucifarian god in whom he trusted.  A wall fresco in the Voortrekker Monument clearly shows that Retief had a water bottle decorated with the most important symbols of masonry: the twin pillars of Solomon’s temple, the compass and square, the triangle, the all-seeing eye of Osiris, and the occult sun-and-moon sign. 

The mason FW Reitz became President of the Free State in 1889, while President TF Burgers of the Republic of Transvaal, (1872-1877,) was also ‘on the square’ – (a mason.)  To top Burgers’ audacity, he was also a theologian and a prominent minister of the masonic Dutch Reformed Church

Contrary to what brainwashed historians taught generations of unwitting Afrikaners, these Christian leaders were not heroically establishing the two Boer Republics, (the Orange Free State and Transvaal,) just to ‘free’ this young nation from the yoke of British imperialism.  Disguised as leaders ‘appointed by God,’ they were conspiring with English masons to establish yet another masonic kingdom for the goat-god Jahbulon or Baphomet

Deeply misled, but genuinely religious, sincerely patriotic Afrikaners believed that their leaders were referring to the God of the Bible when they solemnly swore in the ‘name of god,’ or spoke in the ‘name of christ,’ while most of them, (thank God, not all!) were actually referring to the masonic goat-god of masonry.  [AA Cooper, ‘The Freemasons of South Africa.’  Human & Rousseau, 1986.] 

While Dutch masonry expanded northwards in the 18th century, English masonry manifested itself in the Eastern Province and in Port Natal.  Masons set up lodges in Port Elizabeth, Zetland, Fort Beaufort, Grahamstown, King Williams Town, etc.  Among the first initiates of the Kimberley Lodge were David Harris, Tielman Johannes Roos, the Reverend Canon Gaul, and George Blackstone Williams.  Williams became the diamond city’s lodge master during 1893 and befriended the diamond magnate Cecil John Rhodes.  Lodges or masonic temples soon became part of every town in the Diamond Fields, with masons building their own Christian churches, financed by Rhodes, Barnato, and other masons and illuminists, who combined individual diamond claims in 1890 to establish one gigantic company, the De Beers Consolidated mines. 

Dr. AA Cooper explained the motive behind the accumulation of all this wealth and the British quest to unify the four colonies (the Cape, Natal, OFS and the old ZAR or Transvaal) into one country, “As Pro-Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England, Lord Carnarvon wrote in 1874, ‘Concerning the establishment of an independent Grand Lodge for all constitutions in the future South Africa, [to own the wealth of the entire country...] Perhaps a Grand Lodge of South Africa [a parliament of masons,] would be possible after South Africa becomes… British.’” 

Many main characters of the Second ‘Boer’ War were masons.  Among these, shine Captain De Witt Hamer. ‘Super’ scout Captain Danie Theron; Afrikaans writers Gustav Preller and CJ Langenhoven, and the Chief Justice of the Cape Colony, Sir Henry de Villiers were all masons.  Langenhoven wrote ‘Die Stem’ in 1918, the iconic anthem of South Africa, which only refer to ‘god’ in the last 2 verses.  We can be certain that Langenhoven was referring to the masonic god in this anthem, not the God of the Bible. 

Consider the fact that Afrikaners and their loyal African workers were farmers and not soldiers; their midst was permeated with masonic and other traitors; they were immensely outnumbered and outgunned by the British and their foreign forces, and it seems that only the fearless Generals De Wet and De la Rey were really on their side — if they were not secret masons or illuminists too.  It is indeed a great miracle that this overwhelming genocidal war did not completely annihilate the Afrikaner nation.  However, praise the God of the Bible, for while masons were crushing their livelihood, dignity, and humanity, He was there all the time, protecting those who called upon Him from a sincere heart.


How many Boers fought in the Second Boer War? 

The Burgers (meaning ‘able bodied male citizens,’ some as young as 12 years old and men above 60 years of age,) on horseback or commando, (both Republics combined,) numbered about 88,000. (Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia states that the Afrikaner forces numbered only 64,000.)  Even so, no more than 40,000 Burghers were in the field at any given time.  In September 1900, after the capital of the ZAR, Pretoria, fell to the British, half of the remaining Afrikaner force was captured and imprisoned in local ‘forts’ or prisons, and sent overseas as prisoners of war.  This loss cut the number of Afrikaners on commando in half. 


How could such a small force of Boers engage the British Empire and her Allies? 

In 1899, when the mighty British Empire attacked the two Afrikaner Republics, the Orange Free State and Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek had no formal Defense Force to speak of.  They had nearly no medical provisions or trained combat divisions, apart from the Mounted Police Corp that served civilian life, and the small ‘State Artillery.’  Mostly deployed for ceremonial purposes, the State Artillery wore ornate, full dress uniforms with decorative shoulder-straps, shoulder tabs, caps, and pants with colored cord on the side.   Ranks were indicated by six-pointed silver stars on the collar and officer’s swords.  Field uniforms were white-grey. 

When the mighty British army engaged the two small Republics on the battleground, the nearly insignificant State Artillery withstood them fiercely.  Wikipedia wrote, “During the Boer War, the ‘Staatsartillerie’ performed sterling service. They were the first modern artillery unit to use indirect fire, (Battle of Bergendal or Dalmanutha, 21–27 August 1900,) and the first to use their guns as fire support to the [commandos.]  Their outstanding service led Winston Churchill to comment, "These are the finest gunners in the world.... They can teach the Royal Artillery a lesson or two." 

Except for the State Artillery, Afrikaner farmers could not march and did not receive military training.  They knew little about war strategies and military maneuvers.  They did not wear uniforms.  They wore what they had; mostly grey or khaki farm clothes, a leather jacket, and a floppy leather hat — a ‘velhoed.’  Most farmers used their own rifles and horses.  Anglo Boer War.com reported, “The leaders of the Boer forces were not generals in the popular sense of the word. Almost without exception, they were men who had no technical knowledge of warfare; men who were utterly without military training of any nature, and who would have been unable to pass an examination for the rank of corporal in a European army. Among the entire list of generals who fought in the armies of the two Republics there were not more than three who had ever read military work.

Piet Cronje, [a mason, probably Illuminati,] was one, but was shunned by the other Generals for surrendering with 4,150 men of his commandos on 27 February 1900.]  Every one of the Boer generals was a farmer who, before the war, paid more attention to his crops and cattle than he did to warfare.   Joubert, Cronje, Ferreira, and Meyer were about the only men in the two Republics who would be called upon to lead their countrymen, for all had had experience in former wars; but men like Botha, De Wet, De la Rey, and Snyman, who occupied responsible positions afterward, had no such assurance. The men who became the Boer generals gained their military knowledge in the wilds and on the veldt of South Africa where they were able to develop their natural genius in the hunting of lions and the tracking of game...” 

In the beginning, all available farmers were divided into large groups, consisting of a few thousand horsemen, called commandos. 

The ranks among the Boers were Commander General (such as Cronje and Louis Botha had;) “General, Combat General, Commander, Field cornet, (Afrikaans: “Veldkornet,”) and “Assistant-Field cornet.”  Individual groups within a commando were under command of a ‘Veldkornet.’  A ‘Veldkornet’ was similar to a Justice of the Peace, a bookkeeper, or maybe an ordinary police officer.  As the war progressed, this title began to signify the rank of lieutenant.  From the onset of the war, the very young Afrikaner nation of untrained farmer/hunters proved to be a ‘natural’ civilian militia” – a formidable force of fearless fighters and sharpshooters, all extremely mobile and flexible on horseback.

The photo on the left shows the Boer ‘forces’ as they really were - men and boys of all ages fighting together in civilian clothes, not uniforms, using their own rifles.  Note the cartoon of General De Wet the ‘British Slayer’ – clothed in uniform and wearing a British moustache!  In 1900, when the British began to burn everything that the Afrikaners and their workers owned, the Boers took the boots and uniforms of captive British soldiers.  As the Afrikaners had no prisons, or prisoners of war camps, they then let their captives go free to join their regiments again. 


Why did the British not win the Boer war when they occupied the Republics?

In September 1900, after the British won and lost many battles in conventional warfare, the British finally advanced to Bloemfontein, the capital of the Republic of the OFS and to Pretoria, the capital of the ZAR.  Finally, the British were in control of the two Republics and had captured half of the Afrikaner forces.  Only an estimated 30,000 to 20,000 Burghers remained in the field.  The British believed that the war was over and that the Burghers in the veldt would presently surrender, but President Steyn of the OFS, under protection of General de Wet, eluded their grasp and continued to run the war from the field. 

This inaugurated the second phase of the war.  The war generals decided that President Kruger of the ZAR should retreat to Mozambique to avoid capture by the British, which would have ended the war.  Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, defying British occupation of the ports, sent a war ship to help the President make his escape to rally support for his country abroad. 

President Kruger was not a traitor, who escaped with the ‘Kruger millions’ as alleged.  His escape to the Netherlands was a calculated military move, planned and executed by his war generals.  It is  unlikely that the generals would have transported so much gold to Mozambique while escorting the President to safety; which would have slowed down his escape to a great degree.  It is more likely that the British got hold of the so-called “Kruger millions” when they annexed Pretoria in 1900. 

The Sabie, Mpumalanga, South Africa website states the following, “[When Pretoria fell,] Lord Alfred Milner [said] that gold to the value of R8 million in today’s terms had been removed from the Mint and National Bank between May 29 and June 4, 1900.  He confiscated gold to the value of £2.5 million and removed gold to the value of £1 294 000 from the South African Mint and National Bank.” 

It was Milner who circulated rumours that President Kruger had fled with the millions, which he himself could have stolen and transported to Britain; just as he had gleaned all the ZAR’s gold from the Mint and the National Bank. 

With President Kruger safely on his way to Europe, after deliberation with President Steyn and what was left of the ZAR government, the four Generals, Louis Botha, Jan Smuts, Christiaan de Wet and Koos de la Rey abandoned conventional warfare methods such as trench warfare, changing to guerrilla warfare.  Under command of the two brilliant war generals, Christiaan de Wet and Koos De la Rey, the large commandos were divided into smaller ones.  This meant that the commandos could operate more independently and move more rapidly.  When a commando was captured or defeated the rest could carry on the fight.  Thought up by General Christiaan De Wet, this hit-and-run guerrilla tactic proved an accomplished strategy.  Burning with the desire to retain their independence, the commandos submitted almost miraculously to their commanders. 

As horse-mounted guerrilla fighters, these hunter/farmers grew into a terrifying strike force, which moved too light and fast for English infantry to engage.  The smaller commandos were instructed to attack the British armies and their Allied Forces at their convenience and on their own terms.  Picking their battles strategically, they disrupted, destroyed, and worried the operation and onslaughts of the enemy; targeting British communication, transportation, reserves, troop carriers, and supplies.  Among the main ‘train catchers’ of the Boers ranked dynamite experts Lieutenant Slegtkamp and Captain Hindon, who constantly outwitted the British combat trains carrying troops and military supplies; catching or demolishing almost every cargo they targeted.  

The British and Allied Forces soon became demoralized.   

British commanders reacted by restructuring the infantry and deploying their many respected and highly trained cavalry regiments, especially those from Australia and New Zealand, which specialized in bush warfare.  However, caught between general De la Rey in Transvaal and general De Wet in the Free State, it soon became clear that the minority of Afrikaners outweighed the many Imperial Cavalries of Britain and her allies in maneuverability and in bush warfare.  The Boer commandos simply kept on mauling the thousands upon thousands of foreign forces by hitting them hardest when they least expected it. 


What type of weaponry did they use in the Boer War? 

British commanders even used hot air balloons to float over the battlefield, observing and directing artillery fire.  They armed British and Allied troops with Canadian .303 Lee Enfield or Lee Medford long-range shooting rifles, multi-barreled Gatling guns, and heavy artillery such as 12 lb. Armstrong field guns. 

The Boers used Danish, long-range shooting .317 Mauser rifles, converted Maxim machineguns called ‘Pom-Poms,’ and light artillery called ‘Long Toms,’ but in conventional warfare the Boers remained  extremely outnumbered and outgunned.  For instance, during the battle for Wynne Hill in February 1900, Afrikaners had only eight field guns against fifty of the British.  All the Boers really had were their faith in God, a few thousand of their African workers who mostly tended the horses; their incredibly agile and brave horses, and their Mauser rifles. 

“God and the Mauser!” became the Afrikaner creed.  “Hu-rah!  Here come the Boers!” 

With the onset of the war, the British bravely boasted that they would “handle the Boers during their afternoon tea break.”  However, the exaggerated number of British and allied forces, which they
