Who said whites cannot stand together?
The Daily Maverick is reporting the Spur franchise is making record losses and has to offer rescue packages to the hardest hit franchisees who might have to lay off staff or close.
A Taste for Strife: How a right-wing boycott has lost Spur millions and counting
Of course I am referring to the incident in March 2017 at the Texamo Spur at the Glen Shopping Centre, east of Johannesburg, where a white child complained to her father that she was bullied by a black child which led to a heated argument between the man and the foster mother of the black child, Lebohang Mabuya.
I reported on it here and called for the Spur to be boycotted. Spur needs a taste of reality
Front Nasionaal called for a boycott on the 21st of March 2017
The reasons for my call to a boycott was that Spur supports racist policies such as BEE and Affirmative Action and got rid of their white waiters/waitresses. With this incident nobody intervened despite having four managers on the premises at the time. Their only concern was to prevent othor patrons from leaving.
Further…Afterwards Spur unilaterally decided who the aggressor was without having all the facts and evidence and outright banned the white man. They also issued a statement in which they vilified the white man, apologized one-sidedly to the black woman and offered her a free meal. Spur CEO Pierre van Tonder also said they planned to offer Mabuya and her family trauma counselling and any other support where possible. No councelling offered to the white child that was bullied.

They twisted the story and still refuse to release the full video to the public claiming that their version of the story is the correct one and people should simply trust them.
Eyewitnesses said that the woman swore at the man before the subsequent exchanges were captured on film and that the black child did indeed hit the white child in the face.
Of course the one-sided hypocritical media of South Africa played along and kept pushing the one-sided version of Spur and Lebohang Mabuya.
Funny enough, all Front Nasionaal is calling for is an apology and equal treatment of both parties. Spur, however refuses to admit that they were biased in their handling of the issue and stick to their original story.
To add insult to injury they created a straw man and lightning deflector of intolerance to violence against women and children. On top of it, Mark Farrelly, Chief Operating Officer of Spur, basically made the Spur boycotters off as rightwing, racist scum when he said the boycott is largely restricted to areas that “would previously have voted for the Conservative Party”.
Not sure what was wrong with the Conservative Party, seeing that it was a fully legitimate party and the official opposition against the NP for a while. Seems like when you have any other view than the Libtard view you are leprous yet they talk about rightwingers being “intollerant”.
Nevertheless, Farrelly further insulted the intelligence of Spur Boycotters and “believes that much of the anger from certain sectors of the white Afrikaner population is based on the circulation of fake news and misconceptions about the incident.”
Well, I can assure him that most of my readers who are Spur Boycotters are actually English speaking. They are hugely mistaken if they think only Afrikaners are rightwing.
Nevertheless on the 23rd of May The Herald newspaper from Port Elizabeth/Uitenhage reported that Spur is losing millions. Beef with Spur cuts diner’s appetite
However the idiots at Spur refuse to acknowledge the righteous anger of the white community who now feels vilified and alienated over their handling of the incident and they are downplaying the boycott.
Spur Boycott affecting a minority of our branches - COO in areas with "certain demographical characteristics".

Nevertheless...On Tuesday, CEO of trade union Solidarity Dirk Hermann wrote an excellent open letter to Farrelly that was published on Maroela Media: Dear Mark: 'I’ve lost my appetite for Spur'
Hermann said white people were tired of political correctness at their expense and of being bullied every time they voiced an opinion. He also mentions that Spur alienated their former loyal white clients who supported them for decades, because there is a new market now. A new black middle class who they are catering for and therefore they are not worried about the white clients they are losing. The message is that whites don’t count to them anymore.
So it seems as if Spur is doing a fantastic job of alienating more and more whites with their attitude. I just feel sorry for the other poor franchisees and their workers who had nothing to do with the original incident, but are now suffering because of the attitudes of their bosses at head office. Nevertheless, the Spur CEO and head office have nailed their colours to the mast and these franchisees stick to that brand. They shouldn’t then complain that whites are shunning their brand.

…And I hope Wimpy is paying attention, because they are next.
