White, employed, overwhelmed

Recently, an obnoxious person shared this gem on Facebook:

I know he used to work in radio, not sure if he still does. Judging from the message in the picture, he has changed careers, and is probably working on a mine or in someone's garden. At least those are the professions correlating with the picture: manual labour. I doubt that a rational person would liken a four-hour-day studio job to hard labour, but then again, people often tell me not to stereotype. I guess I should focus less on the work, and more on the effect one's hard work can have on you. 

Because whether you talk kak on Radio for a living, sell hot dogs or dig holes in the ground, you have one enemy: The professional voter. The person who votes for a living is a selfish being, with only two objectives in life (judging from this meme). Objective one would be a free coca cola every election year, which is kind of stupid, because you can get that when you're employed as well. Then there is their desire to 'overwhelm'. See, it is these poor people's want for revenge that keeps them going, 5 year interval to 5 year interval without any security and stability. Because see, everytime this unemployed voter craves bread or shelter, he or she imagines an employed, white, middle aged guy in a studio feeling 'overwhelmed' for a split second. Some people find comfort in God, but in the case of professional voters it seems like they seek comfort in white exhaustion.  Because since every thought in South Africa should be spend on white people, one may occassionally want to imagine people of this race experiencing mild discomfort. 

 I'm totally quitting my job tomorrow and becoming a professional voter/homeless person just because the bored individuals sharing this meme say it's fun. Tomorrow I'll be overwhelming Jeremy Mansfield and all 300 fat heads who shared that meme. Joy.

Smaller parties, notably, took a beating. AGANG never made it to the start and COPE became a footnote. The IFP's support was halved, a prime reason being the NFP (IFP rebels), entering the KZN political arena.
