Hey everyone, over the course of the weekend I decided to venture onto the Economic Freedom Fighters facebook page to try and get an insight into their policies. I was fully open to debate and gain further insight into what exactly they are fighting for and if they understand what they stand for.
A very pertinent issue the EFF stands for is Nationalization and land...so here was my question:
"Can someone please explain to me who gets land and why? There are over 35 million people who may be homeless (roughly) and farms are owned by banks per tax requisite.
Seriously now, how do you determine who gets land first above everyone else and why."
That was my very simple question,very straight forward and serious. None of the comments' grammar has been corrected or altered:
Tebogo Andries Sithole: our policies clearly state that the Land will be owened by the state on behalf of the people,then people will decide on how they wanna do with the land black and whites in order to limit the minority Race to dominate the majority,if a certain community applys for the land and they want to use it for Residential purposes,the Government must grant that request,concerning Agriculture not everyone is gonna go into farming,only those who are interested in farming will apply to use any land that is suitable for farming
Mkokeli M. Binza John,luk Chf,we(E.F.F)first nationalise the banks(strategic sectors),once th bnks belong to Th state,thn we go 4 land,wht we do we tyk all land,either ownf by bnk or whueva,redistribute it via application for use of it
(thanks for clearing nothing up)
Mkokeli M. Binza: Hw do we expropriate??we introduce a law wch wl force all those whu own land to produce a certificate of ownershp nd if one dznt hv it,we tyk it,lyk Zim did...
(That makes sense.)
Mpumi Balisani: U c john u r mistaking some things here, asking for our land is not racism, EFF gettng 9% doesnt mean we wll change our policies and 2019 election wll be won by EFF we have a vision for the future and a long term plan, u tlk of not being scared hell yeah u are scared what if u are not why infiltrate our page at first place, ya DA is never a threat and will never win nxt year ya ideology was a desperate poor survey u white racist
(by their logic because I'm curious i am a white racist)
Al CaSoul Soulfire Mature-lo: Ok John. here is your answer: the benefits are us having control of the economy and not be subject to the criminality of the western principles of governance we need no money to take our shit back, and ofcos the white institution will drag us to the so called international court..we knw that. Now answer me. How much money did whites pay for ownership of those mines. To whom did they pay that money? How does the current banking system benefit the black majority?selfish? Do u see any other suffering race except the black race..and who caused it. And don't tell me about hard working something plz.
MY ANSWER: So...by your logic if you control the economy you wont be subjected the criminal courts? if thats what i get cause i could barely understand your comment. please stop saying WHITE institutions its the ANC who is controlling the law and us whites have nothing to do with it, why dont you blame cANCer and get off our backs. how the bloody hell am i supposed to know the exact number of how much they paid for mines, and you automatically assume they were white? in normal instances they take out a subusidary loan from the bank which is re-enforced from the government in order to grant access to mine for resources...AKA...INVESTMENTS: local and international buddy.
"How does the current banking system benefit the black majority" WHY would it benefit you...you have no say in the company! you think just cause your a darker color you deserve the right to get shares in a company you have no affiiation with? are you stupid? "Do u see any other suffering race except the black race..and who caused it" well yeah, the jews actually suffered FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR worse than the blacks and you dont see us complaining, you guys are just really lazy and apathetic.
Al CaSoul Soulfire Mature-lo: John . Who way no country can flourish without foreign investment. ?? Who told u that.. We had so called investors since the ship jesus landed in africa. As for the cost nationalising mines, ask how much Zim spent. Pity we have a spineless government. Nationalising must not benefit the country, it must benefit black people. Let's talk Zulu and I bet you even an average 15 year old can explain it to you. U sound condescending, not saying u are but... All these white owned institutions are for whites and are criminals.
(Now their whole policy changes, Nationalisation must only benefit BLACK people and not the country... and all other institutions are owned by whites. LOGIC.)
MY ANSWER: "As for the cost nationalising mines, ask how much Zim spent." I don't want to know how much Zim spent on their mines, i want to know from you, how much money we would need to make it happen."
This is the thing with you people, you duck and dive questions and answer questions with totally seperate answers! and in saying this "Nationalising must not benefit the country, it must benefit black people" is EXTREMELY selfish, why black people only? so does free schooling and housing ONLY apply to black people? you bunch or so racist its actually laughable, no wonder no one can take you seriously. your argument has no substance and you STILL didnt answer my question! HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU NEED TO NATIONALIZE A MINE?! if you dont know the answer just say you dont know! jesus, what is wrong with you guys your so defensive and nasty.
Al CaSoul Soulfire Mature-lo: Why are you so keen to knw what we going to do with our shit ... Who said we need your approval? , and u come to a facebook page to seek those answers?!!!huh!!! how stupid are you?u knw y u came on Facebook for answers? Bcos u already knw the truth. And for a fact . White people are lied to more than any other race... For the few elite to get away with so much sh** they need ur dum asses by their side...shut the f*** , who u trying to convince..that's the sh** u discuss over potjiekos not here . I told u , u gonna die saying " proper document" doesn't mean sh** to a Criminal (white race) y shud we care?. The had proper document in Zim. .
Hate is a pale race that destroys evry wildlife , environment, continent , culture, family , nation that they come across in the name of stolen civilization ..that's hate my friend .death is pale my friend ....all because your paranoid!!!! White race represents death...ur time is up motherf*****....
Tk Mashianoke : I thought u wanted to know how are we gonna implement nationalisation but if u want 2 change our minds go to hell.
(I never asked that and instead i got a nasty answer)
Tk Mashianoke: this thing want us 2b their slaves forever cos we don,t hv money 2 compete with them on private sector to hell with his attitude.
MY ANSWER: OH...MY...FLIPPING...LORD. when did i ever say anything about slavery?? i am just asking you a VERY basic question !!
Unfortunately I can't past 100 different answers from the page...and not one person could give me that answer. I encourage you to go on the EFF page and see how nasty and racist the people representing this "movement" are and what they don't understand about their own policies, it is nothing short of laughable.
Thanks for reading guys give your thoughts.
