Prez Julius and the joke of the decade!

12 March 2012, 08:32

In my view, people have made far too much of this whole business of Julius Malema up and until now. Most people are afraid of the thought of Julius Malema as president of South Africa. Some idiots even say the “next” president. The guy is 31 years old now!

In order for him to be elected in one of the following two elections he would have to be the youngest president in world history to achieve this feat!

So, no he won’t be the next president!

On to the next question then…will he ever be president?

Well, taking into account the path of the people, and in particular the type of voter you’d expect would support him, the chances are quite slim, if any, absolutely minimal.

You see, people are becoming more informed as time goes by, I mean, the average ANC Youth League supporter (with specific reference to those guys who chant Malema as the true Messias) is becoming more educated as time goes by, which means in about 25 to 30 years, if Mr Tender is still in politics, most of his previous supporters would have smartened up, or died in attempting to flee from the police (or the current ANC leadership for that matter).

My point is proven by the amount of people and factions within the ANC that want to see the backside of Malema. If you take these individuals and groups into account, you will notice a clear difference in education, and all round logic in relation to his current supporters (whom I firmly believe are paid for).

South Africa as a country and its people will not allow someone like Malema to become the Big Cheese purely because everyone is afraid of another potential autocratic government which will obviously, certainly not serve the interests of the people. The nullefication of everyones combined efforts to avert conflict will not go down well, if push comes to shove.

My arguments may sound a little flat and optimistic, but honestly, the potential for Malema to find himself in this position is exactly that…flat and optimistic.

Currently, the only purpose he serves is to make the ANC look better, when they give him a slap on the wrists every now and again (unfortunately this seems to have become a pet lion thats been in the house for too long, considering the ANC's position).

This restores a little confidence and creates the illusion that the world hasn’t gone mad…yet. Every time he says something silly, most whites tremble in their shoes at the thought he provokes as a potential future leader. However, the rest of the inhabitants of this country are laughing their backsides off at us for taking their intelligence for granted like that.

“Do they really think we want this guy as president?” They chuckle amongst themselves…and all he does is act like a scarecrow… for us pigskins…!

You really have to see the funny side in all of this; I mean who are the ones who really know better?

Maybe more importantly…who is the joke on actually?
