Did you get your free blue t-shirt at the DA march? Are you one of the mindless idiots who think that “democracy” means that everything is free, or that politicians are serious when they say that they have your well-being at heart?
At the time of the formation of COPE (with their free yellow T-shirts), I knew that they would amount to nothing – the simple reason being that COPE consisted of the same old incompetent, corrupt, greedy members that have broken away from the ANC. Their followers were the same fools who voted the corrupt, communist ANC-party into power. I based my prediction on an old saying by Confucius: “Once an incompetent greedy communist, always an incompetent greedy communist.” Or: “He who rides a tiger by the tail is sitting the wrong way around.”
The ever-growing numbers of mindless sheeple are blaming the government for all their woes. But is the current bunch of gravy train passengers really to blame? I think not. Let me tell you why.
No matter who governs a country – the manner in which it is done is a reflection of the mentality of its common citizens. Of which we have plenty. Common, that is. And some are even legally in this country.
If I were a politician (and thank God I’m not), I would state “categorically,” that the quality of the human material in this country is rotten. And treat them with the contempt they deserve. But, because I need their votes (in order to keep myself in a job) I would rather give them free T-shirts, organise marches, and tell them pie-in-the-sky lies of free houses, jobs, and democracy.
Are there still people out there who honestly think that the mindless masses have any idea of what “democracy” means?
Do yourself a favour: ask any of your “common” countrypersons what he/she understands under the concept of “democracy.” Ask twenty and you’ll get twenty different answers. Hell, ask a thousand, if you have the time!
The DA’s march on the headquarters of Cosatu is a brilliant example of how the sheeple will follow anyone who waves a free T-shirt – with the promise of a youth wage subsidy, and the creation of jobs, thrown in for good measure. Look closely at the faces of those wearing those blue T-shirts. Yes, you’re right! They are the same idiots who wore the red T-shirts last week! And the yellow T-shirts, four years ago! And the red T-shirts five years ago!
Makes you think: “Just how many T-shirts do these people have in their clothing cupboards?”
Now, ask yourself this question: If the sheeple in the blue T-shirts come into power, what makes you think that they will behave any differently from the fools in the red T-shirts? Or the clowns in the yellow T-shirts? Or the girl in the wet T-shirt? (Sorry, that last one snuck in by mistake.)
Napoleon said: “An army marches on its stomach.”
Today, he would have said: “The sheeple marches on free T-shirts.”
South Africa is being led by singing and dancing clowns, in takkies, who perform like trained monkeys to entertain the free T-shirt brigade. Nothing good will ever come from this.
That’s all I’m saying.
