How to win Election 2014

05 February 2014, 17:15
Say now. If I was a militant political party...who needed a vote boost to get me a substantial standing in parliament :

1. Instigate as many public protests leading up to said Election. As many clinics, schools etc. to be burned down in a Protest-Blitz. It doesn't matter what you offer them. As long as you say it will be better than what they have now.
2. Sweep up public emotion so that they become unruly and dangerous. So that the Police have no other choice than to use lethal force. Then decry this inhumane treatment as being equal to that of Apartheid.
3. Use the killed protestors as martyrs. Make the public distrust and automatically reject any form of policing/army. That will ensure that the Election can not be cooked by the (now panicking) ruling party. If the state sends in the army/police to "protect" poling stations...the masses will burn them down = International News of a failed Election.
4. Use children in the frontlines of protests. Eventually one will be shot. By Police. The entire situation will explode. While the situation spirals out of control = Ruling Party cannot campaign for votes. They will spend their time and resources calming the masses. Instead of explaining their election manifesto.

And as this blitzkrieg s**t storm is intensified as soon as the Election date is announced. Sit back. And watch how the Ruling Party frantically and in crisis management mode...tries to find a way around the CONSTITUTIONAL RULE that an Election MUST take place by April 2014.

Then.   Walk into Parliament with the votes of the people behind you. You will walk around townships like a God. And the fading ruling party will be met with distrust and disdain.

Winnie Mandela was right. Julius Malema is the Nelson Mandela of this generation. This time we will be delivered not from Apartheid. But from the ANC.
