How did a significant Portuguese population come to live in South Africa?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I suspect they fled Angola and Mozambique. If they are largely people who opted not to return to Portugal in 1974 and went there instead it would explain why they are so far right wing.

I don't know, I think the beat-back that happened in the wake of the Inks-Deluge debacle (and the descent of Leip to address it) means that the Mods don't have the standing right now to pull off a ban of a big-name poster.  this place would absolutely erupt, at least for opebo.  jmf maybe a bit less so, but still an outcry.  doesn't mean it could not happen at a future point.

^^^^ this

The most of the Portuguese had a good relation to the native population in Angola and Mozambique and return to Portugal after the independence of the colonies. But the right-wing people go to South Africa, not all were fascists, but many. The South African government made ​​all the whites in Angola and Mozambique, the offer to go to South Africa. Some did, but most do not.
