Spear painting - A crafty ANC ploy?

25 May 2012, 10:36

Was the whole spear painting saga that's still raging, an ANC tactic that is working so far and yet so good? The artist, Brett Murray, whether inadvertently or not might just have opened door and the way back into dissatisfied ANC voters hearts by making Zuma ,and the ANC party at that, look like the victim in all this and it looks like it all worked.

With 65.9% of the vote currently,nobody would bet against the ANC losing in any of the future general elections. And with the DA making massive inroads and gains at recent by-elections,it was really winning over support from former,but now disillusioned and dissatisfied ANC voters. However this painting The Spear, which could all be a crafty manoeuvring ploy by the ANC has made their ruler look like the only one being unfairly painted,just because they in power and in control of the country. As come News24 user had said:"If it was done at the outset towards the DA Party wonder the responses of the majority would have been on these pages have to be a penis painting or a vagina painting of a particular leader,but something at least as vulgar as the spear. Then what!

Yes Murray painted a picture perfect of what South Africa had become under lustful and corrupt Jacob Zuma and his true self,but has it actually added public opinion at polling time for the ANC come the next general election time. The ANC strongest spear is not Zuma branding his penis for all the world to see,but that a "white" man in Brett Murray or white people by a large extent chooses to use as their argument in politics: The humiliation of the man whose is an elected official and to get their message across instead of engaging in civilized debate perhaps on television for all to see.

The ANC were fairly happy I reckon that this vulgar painting of Jacob Zuma,did what it was meant to do and that is: Show up Zuma this sexmad (dick)tator first and foremost,then subsequently we'll use the outdated race card for good measure and leave at that and the public's reaction. And boy oh boy did the public responded. On this forum alone the multitude of happy go lucky seriously overjoyed readers commenting in seeing the biggest buffoon of them all humiliated like that, only to get crushed in the nuts when it don't show the same effect when it comes to voting by the masses at general election time. Will the ANC having the last laugh then? Wait and see!  

  Also with Zuma's lawyer breaking down in court all adds up to the whole charade. So many anti ANC News24 users on this forum basking in the thought that Zuma and his party had been humiliated when in actual fact it all could be a plan by the ANC that is working,albeit embarrassingly so and the sympathizers,which are the 65.9% of the voters for will surely increase because of this if nothing else.     For those of you that don't know,but Jacob Zuma,is a ruthlessly efficient and experienced master in the darker arts of political survival. With News24 stories of:

  • Zuma Spear 'an attack on African culture'
  • Zuma painting 'sadistic' - SACP
  • The Spear divides the nation
  • Lets see where this all goes when the court case et all resumes.
