Remember Maria-Antoinette?

14 December 2012, 14:01

Shame, isn’t it interesting how history repeats itself. Every political organisation that reached its sell by date sings the same song. BLAME THE MEDIA! Jeremy Cronin is yet the latest in a long list of discredited political figures that are now blaming the media for his sorry state. “Don’t shoot the messengers, they are merely reporting what they observe!” Cronin must realise that the more they sing from this song sheet, the more obvious it becomes that the ANC and its “so-called” alliance doesn’t have any credibility or respect left.

The divisions in the ANC are obvious and massive. The current political miracle is how they manage to survive these chasms of distrust and even blatant hatred. It is simply remarkable that every ANC gathering doesn’t end in a bloodbath.  Decisions are forced down onto the basic membership, and the ANC is more an autocracy than a democracy. Those in power will do anything to hold onto their positions, disregarding the cost. In the process all semblances’ of decency, morality and democracy goes out the door. Never mind the National constitution, the ANC should rip up their own constitution, because the way things are done under Zuma is an insult to that document.

Besides, when will “red” Jeremy and his Communist buddies have enough balls to enter an election without sitting like a blood sucking leach on the back of others?

“On behalf of whom do you speak Cronin? Your party, the SACP, has never entered an election in South Africa, yet you claim the right to speak as if you are a leader of sorts! Shut-up till you have proved your support base! It is noticeable that you claim the media don’t understand the economic policy plan! There you have it wrong! Everyone in South Africa understands corruption, theft, nepotism, incompetence, lying, stealing, tender-preneurship and a complete moral bankruptcy! We get it, you don’t have to explain it, and the millions of desperately poor and hungry people in this country also get it! Shame on you Cronin, where is your basic human conscience? Did it drown somewhere in expensive French champagne or in single malt whisky, or did it simply suffocate under a pile of caviar and a heap of crayfish tails?”

Remember Maria-Antoinette? The ANC economic policy does so remind me about her complete lack of understanding the plight of the masses! Her credited statement of “Let them eat cake!” when told there are no more bread in Paris, fits in comfortably with the insane management style of the ANC and there alliance partners! And we all remember how her story ended?

Forget the media, the question should be, “How long will the hungry masses allow these bloodsucking thieves to enrich themselves and live the life of obscene opulence, while they simple are pushed deeper into poverty and hopelessness?”

Although appearing to embrace conservatism, today’s Russia seems to be a mass of contradictions especially with the emergence of a so-called Bolshevik party and its admiration of both Stalin and Tsarist Russia. Read more...
