Strikers or terrorists?

19 November 2012, 11:05

When I read the stories about farmworkers threatening more rampages, and farmers having to hire private security to protect their farms from their own workers, I realised something.

What we call 'strikers' would much better be described as terrorists.

The definition of the word terrorist is someone or a group who use violence as a means of coercion. Essentially, they're people who kill, burn, loot and destroy in order to intimidate their victims into conceding to their demands.

When you look into terrorism in more detail, you discover that domestic terrorism is one of the more common forms of terrorism, and that it's rife mostly in countries that are not developed or democratic.

In any normal country, domestic terrorism would be a huge problem, and the government would do everything possible to stop it. South Africa, however, is not normal. It's a country where the government themselves are condoning or in some cases instigating terrorism against their own citizens.

It's the cold war, on a smaller scale, and it's the ANC themselves that is behind it all. They're stirring up their own supporters, either themselves or through their allies like Cosatu, to attack their own people.

It's very clear, when you look at what's happening in SA in that light, that our government is not what they preach to be. They're in it entirely for themselves, and if they can stir up terrorist activities to take the spotlight off their thievery and corruption, then they're happy to do so.

I can only hope that one day, they'll all be taken to task for this. Hopefully in front of the ICC.

Transformation or transgression

A much needed debate on the transformation/quota system is long overdue. This forced entailment to SA sport has ignored the fact that some sports are more mandatory to the system than others.  Read more...
