The ANCYL is Disgusting!!!

30 August 2012, 09:26

In the week that saw the bloodiest days since apartheid, while our nation mourned the senseless loss of life, one group hijacked the tragedy.

The Marikana mining massacre was horrific and a portion of blame can be laid at the feet of several parties - most noticeably the militant, trouble-making ANCYL.

Can you believe the sickening lows to which the dysfunctional and rebellious ANCYL will sink?  Have they no shame?

Families of the deceased have been traumatised by the tragic loss of life, the nation mourns, but the ANCYL stuck their noses into this disaster for the sole purpose of gaining cheap political points.

In this situation, they’re analogous to a war-mongering dictator, who incites violence among the masses, telling people to demand and take ‘without compensation’, then when the battle has been fought and bodies lie everywhere, the same absent dictator suddenly makes a guest appearance in a vain attempt to be seen as the peoples’ saviour.

The ANCYL is disgusting!!!

What has the ANCYL ever done for the people of South Africa?  What has the ANCYL ever done for anyone, except incite the masses and encourage public anarchy and violence against the state?

If the mother-body ANC has any resolute leadership left amongst its ranks, it will act decisively and do what the nation has been asking for – shut down the rebellious and dysfunctional ANCYL!

And what about future tragedies, where our nation grieves the dead?  Will this leaderless ANCYL suddenly make public appearances again in order to elevate themselves as self-appointed peacemakers and mediators?

South Africa doesn’t need this militant, trouble-making ANCYL.  They serve NO purposes to our greater good.  There are only in this to further their narrow-minded agenda, pursuing their money and power-hungry goals to greedy dictatorship.

It’s embarrassing and sickening to see the ANCYL turn a national tragedy into some cheap political campaigning.  They really are a disgrace.

The ANCYL is disgusting!!!
