Those that gave Claudia_Meads all the "you go girl" thumbs up, on the article "De Klerk lambastes ANC policies"can you all be so kind enough so as to ask her what her best rule of governance would be for South Africa looking ahead? She has the habit of using ANC failures & incompetence,of which there are countless many,to appeal to ordinary and everyday people's sense of how ****ed up South Africa currently is and rightly so I must add,and yet she stops short of saying what Governance she'll have ruling over citizens of South Africa. Most of us would say anyone but the ANC and give damn good reasons for it.
However reading Claudia_Meads says and how she says things at times when quoting respectable institutions as her backup of her points in argument,you've got ask Claudia_Meads is she really genuinely concern for the welfare of all South Africans regardless of their race and skin colour. Then again should she be? As freedom of choice means that you can either like or dislike someone,there is no law against that and goodness for that.
Anyone that follows her line of thought will be now know how highly she always speaks of the old pre 1994 National Party and the "only working economy" in the whole of Africa,the "good" system South Africa had in place prior to 1994 and she at one time even called John Vorster a "decent individual" that did what was "best" for South Africa.
So again you 1200 plus thumbs up folks for Claudia_Meads go on and find out what is it that is really all about. Is she simply just pointing out the related inefficiencies & inadequateness of the ANC Government generally or is she using their misrule to talk up the previous racist previous Government of Apartheid? You've genuinely got to read between the lines carefully with people like Claudia_Meads as she has made it known that she don't give a **** about any black people at large.
Two days ago,under the article "SA population at 51.8 million", a white News 24 reader going by the name "gianni blayse" posted this comment about Claudia_Meads:"im white. I just want to say that claudia meads and alicia myburgh, two people that comment on this forum every day, both exemplify in their own way what is wrong with white south africa. one has a massive superiority complex which is only overshadowed by her brutal racism, and an incredibly skewed viewpoint on s.africa, present and past. her disdain for blacks is palpable, and her pseudointellectual rubbish and condescending tone just makes her seem like a spoilt white safa who has had servants her whole life. go live in the first world countries which you credit so much, and live as a middle class person, not as a little spoilt brat swimming in daddys money. alicia exemplifies white ignorance and a complete lack of understanding of the sociopolitical realities of s.a. if you are a poor white, NO ONE CARES. you still are educated, try being a native xhosa speaking, uneducated person from the townships with no hope. this is what a huge part of our population deals with and while you wander why they are 'lazy blacks', the reality is you have no understanding of what their lives are like and where they come from. p.s - zuma sucks
Extremists like Marine Le Pen in France,Csanad Szegedi in Hungary and Heinz Christian Strache in Austria all highlight important issues to do with mass immigration,islamophobia,anti-Semitism,Euro Bailouts,etc to get the masses of ordinary people to side with them on their "hidden" and self-serving ideas.
So yeah ask Claudia_Meads what Governance she would have in place in South Africa right now if it were in her power to do so.
Claudia_Meads also at time called the DA Party,the 2nd largest political party in South Africa, a joke when I asked her a while back if she'd ever consider wanting them to be in power in South Africa. She also claims to live in America I think she said in one of her comments,so the everyday realities of South African life don't involve her any one bit and yet she condemns a country she no longer lives in.
So yeah though of you who agreed with how Claudia_Meads comes across on the News24 comment sections should really question as to what Claudia_Meads motives could be. Is she genuinely disgusted with the ANC's Governance or is disgusted that black people rule the country and prefer the old system back as we've known it to be? Most of us wants the ANC out of power,but does Claudia_Meads want them out for the same reasons as ordinary hard working and tax paying South Africans do. Just a thought that's all!
