A client told me something very interesting recently: having the ANC govern the country is like mixing sh!t with ice cream. It does very little for the sh!t, but the ice cream…?
And that’s where we, the white populace currently are.
On the one side we have Malema in his Armani overalls and on the other Zuma’s daughter who, at the ripe of age of twenty-five, with no qualifications in her field, is appointed head of communications. What, with drums?
I think by now it’s a fairly well-known fact that Africa, as a continent, has never produced any invention, not even something as humble as the bicycle. They have no numbering system of their own: they still use the filthy Eurocentric numbering system and drink the filthy Eurocentric Johnny Walker Blue Label.
The red overall brigade takes part in pro-Palestine marches without having the vaguest idea of what’s going on. Zuma would jump on the bandwagon, but he’s too fat to jump. In addition, they threaten to physically remove the Israeli Ambassodor.
Of course, you and I know that the conflict is not between Israel and Palestine, but between Israel and Hamas. And before that Hezbollah. And before that the PLO.
The day after he received his Nobel Peace Prize, Yasser Arafat was recorded as saying he would not rest while a Jew was left alive on the earth. Them’s words of peace, alright!
‘When the Arabs learn to love their children more than they hate the Jews, there would be a chance of a lasting peace.’ Golda Meir.
‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.’ Benjamin Netanyahu.
Now, you’ll notice that, without fail, Zuma and his pet monkey choose the populist, and wrong, side. According to them, Mugabe is a hero, and the country is failing because the world refuses to recognise his achievements, but instead imposes sanctions.
I read a piece of drivel this morning, here on News24, about Africans never having stolen land from the Khoi-San. Everybody, including the whites, have stolen land from the Khoi-San, but the ANC went one better. They took them out of the Kalahari and put them in the Koue Bokkeveld which, as its name implies, is one of the coldest places in South Africa.
There, they drink themselves senseless and put on shows for the tourists. ‘Aw, lookit them cute li’l Bushmen! Cain’t b’lieve them people kin still live this way in theseyere times.’
The Botswana Government gave in to De Beers and moved them off their traditional lands and put them in the harshest corner of Botswana, but they’re not forced to put on a show for tourists.
So yes, we white thieves stole land from them, no doubt about it, but the current Human Rights compelled Government not only stole their land, they made a display of them.
The early settlers (read thieves) moved into a largely unsettled land and cultivated it. Real history, not ANC history. The natives (slaps hand; BAD word!) made sporadic raids and were repelled, quite brutally.
In Zululand, King Shaka gave land to the settlers (acceptance of a gift does not imply theft). Dingaan later changed his mind and killed them. THAT is theft!
ESKOM is making record profits but still raising the price of electricity, while its infrastructure is crumbling. The ANC inherited a perfectly working system and, has been the case everywhere in Africa (Namibia excepted) ruined it; ran it into the ground; made sure it could never function properly again without complete rebuilding in many instances.
So I’ll close with this: having the ANC govern the country is like mixing sh!t with ice cream. It does very little for the sh!t, but the ice cream…?
Connect the dots.
