South Africa: Malema pulls out race card again
This is classic from the ANC “Youth” league president,
Mini Amin Julius Malema. Seems that he’s upset because white people are obsessed about getting attacked or robbed! I mean, fancy that! Why on earth would we be obsessed about such minor issues – what with living in such a crime-free country? Oh, and by the way Mr Malema – we aren’t obsessed with that – we’re more obsessed about possibly being violated, assaulted and then hacked to pieces or shot for nothing. For the international readers out there – the drivel this youth leader spouts is a taste of the stupidity we have to deal with on a daily basis. Do you feel sorry for us yet? My comments in brackets – I just couldn’t keep quiet on this one.
Bloemfontein – Do not be afraid to confront issues of race, ANC Youth League president Julius Malema told Free State students on Friday.
“It is a most sensitive issue; while you speak against it you are declared a racist. If you are not strong, you will retreat,” he said in Bloemfontein.
Malema was speaking at the University of the Free State during the launch by the SA Students’ Congress of a “Right to Learn Campaign”.
He said “those who have oppressed us”, should be pressed to show remorse and accept that Africans are ruling the country.
“They have rejected” olive branches extended by former president Nelson Mandela and President Jacob Zuma. (Please give us examples of these olive branches – I think they’re still on the tree)
“They do not participate in anything that is of national importance, they do not observe national days, they do not support national initiatives,” Malema said. (No thanks – we don’t want to sit with 50 000 blacks in a stadium where your chances of being raped and murdered are 99.9% – we’d rather stay at home and count our blessings for surviving another day in the Rainbow nation)
“… They do not care about the development of this country, they are forever obsessed with whether they are going to be attacked or robbed.” (No comment necessary)
‘White males still control economy’
Malema said white people had been taught from an early age that a black person could never be trusted, that “a black person has a potential of being a criminal, a black person has a potential of being a murderer”. (Just about the only thing that makes sense here)
Malema said the ANC had fought for a non-racial society and was building a non-racial society. (HA HA HA – damn, now I’ve wet my pants)
However, he said this would not be reached if national questions such as race, gender or class were not addressed. (How many more times would you like to address this??)
Malema said South Africa’s freedom was useless while the country’s economic power was still in the hands of white males. (How about the economy that is in the black hands – don’t you have a couple of million in your bank account while your fellow blacks starve?)
“There is nothing transformed in the economy of South Africa and for as long as we don’t take a radical position to the transformation of the economy it will forever be dominated by white males.” (Ag shame – would you like a tissue?)
Malema said there were usually no problems with debates such as gender issues and about whether the working class should be the ruling class.
However, when the alliance wanted to fight the monopoly of white capital in society, it was branded racist. (Pssssst Jules – it’s the OTHER way around)
Malema told the students the government would never be able to supply free education only through collecting taxes. (Isn’t this what you promised your black masses years ago? Just what did happen to the white tax money??)
“We need extra income. Where is this? It is beneath the soil of South Africa – that is where we can get the money,” he said. (Yes, we the government and youth league have stolen all the tax money we could and now we need the money from the mines. We will target all the mines in
black racist white hands first)
Malema said the government would like to guarantee the ownership of the country’s minerals for the people of this country. (Pull the other one. Correct interpretation: we want it all for ourselves and screw the poor)
The government would be prepared to go into partnership with the private sector in the mining sector, but government must hold the majority share. (Yes, we want what Mugabe has – he is our hero)
The ANC youth leader said the working class should be able to indicate what they wanted government to do with the money made from mines. (Well, seeing as you don’t work or pay taxes, please stop making decisions for us!)
“That way we know there is public participation in the process,” Malema said.
“We do not pay tax, because we are government but Anglo Platinum must still pay tax after declaring dividends with us,” he said to huge cheers from the group. (I speak with fork tongue – please explain why you don’t pay tax?)
Turning to the event itself, Malema echoed local student leaders’ unhappiness that the meetings were held at the university’s Rag Farm, removed from the central part of the campus, blaming the university’s white Afrikaner management. (Give it a rest you tool – the University has a non-white Rector!)
“There is an evil spirit at the UFS. The evil spirit must be confronted, that evil spirit is deep-rooted at the university and that is racism,” he said. (Ok, now I give up. Whoooooo, evil spirit please take Mr Malema far away and please don’t let him come back until he’s grown up into a real man and his testicles have dropped)
