And now the Defenders of the Myth have cancelled Peter Dickens

There are a couple of Facebook Boer War groups where many who pretend to be interested in the Boer War hang out. I say ‘pretend’, as it would seem most do not actually want to learn about the Boer War at all, or discuss what really happened and why. The estimable Peter Dickens has just been banned from one group, for the heinous crime of daring to present historical facts – something which is, apparently, unpardonable in their echo chamber.

Here is the inconvenient research they were so desperate to ban:

The Defenders of the Myth are really backed into a corner now, and clearly realise they cannot refute a word that Mr Dickens says… so their only recourse is to ‘cancel’ him. Anything, it would seem, to keep their much-loved National Party version staggering on a little longer.

    Thank you Chris. You are right, this particular article earned me a banning from a Boer War Facebook group. It seems making the historical causal and ideological link between Krugerism and Nazism is just a step too far for the myopically minded and just too sensitive as it challenges an identity so carefully established over five decades of Apartheid. Somehow it was concluded that I “hate” Afrikaners – which is bound to surprise my Afrikaans wife of 30 years and family. I’m beginning to see why you lump these people as “defenders of the myths” and loath their echo chambers.

    Perhaps Peter would like to tell the readers where he got all these ideas about Hitler ?
    Hitler and his Spies ..
    Hitler and the Boers ..

    Perhaps lifted from MY postings here on this website ?

    Is plagiarism a word reserved for the … “True Believers” ?

      I’ve been researching and writing on this topic for the last 8 years. I am even grounding my masters on the Nazification of the Afrikaner right. So to try and accuse me of plagiarism is a little rich. I should ask you if you’ve been hiving my website

    Certainly not
    Perhaps we need to check dates ?

      I published Hitler and his Boer war along with an outline of the movie uncle Kruger on the 9th July 2023 – long before I had any interaction with you. Do you want to accuse me of something else now? Methinks you’ve yet another opportunist seeking recognition for something you have not done.

        I am happy to leave you to the tender mercies of the – Nazi Afrikaner “true-believers”
        May it go well with you …
