Of all the things you could have mentioned as wrong with Europe, what made you think of sodomy? Is that supposed to be an insult? Homosexuality
amongst the native Americans was well documented, and not everything they ate was appetizing by modern standards.
Quite interesting how homophobia comes into post-colonial arguments. The main problems with colonial Europe for me rather seem like religious
intolerance and persecution, as well as greed and massive inequality. But then I assume you were being tongue-in-cheek, and returning some tired
arguments to the source.
Just to add to some other posts. The "Boer leader" Eugene Terre'Blanche was known for getting drunk and falling off his horse, and his sexual
scandals with British journalist Jani Allen. He also served prison time for assaulting a black worker, and rumor has it that he was violated in
prison. The anti-Zionist arguments seem somewhat ironic, seeing that apartheid South Africa and Israel (both founded in 1948) were well connected,
particularly as far as exchanging arms technology went. But rightwingers discuss these arguments ad nauseam on their websites. Nevertheless,
Terre'Blanche deserves his dignity and say, and there is a good case for a "Volks-staat", considering the relative success of Orania.
