The Way I see it....

27 December 2012, 13:23

Nothing gets South Africans jumping around more than the race issue – point out the previous governments/DA’s faults, you’re a racist, point out the ANC’s faults, you’re a racist etc First they said I’m too soft on the ANC, now they say I’m too harsh on them, that I can’t stand to see a rich Black brother living in the laps of luxury (this despite the fact that I constantly cry out long and loud against the vast apartheid-created inequalities that sees a minority own and enjoy more than 80% of the country’s wealth & land by themselves).

 Assume I had 10 cars in the garage, 7 of them get stolen, then I send You to get them back from the thieves but instead you steal two of them yourself, when I complain, you feel offended because 7 of my cars had already been stolen by someone else and you were merely following suite. The people who stole the 7 cars also start complaining, asking why I can’t buy other cars, they ask why I look at the past when I should be focusing on the future and appreciating the 1 car they did not steal, they tell me it’s best that They kept the cars as I would not be able to look after them properly anyway - that’s the ANC & the rich minority/DA/NP in a nutshell.

Now they ask why a White woman is Miss South Africa – I say to hell with beauty contests, with so many beautiful women of all race groups in South Africa, you’re always bound to offend one group or the other - Beauty Contests are extremely outdated, and so are most peoples’ attitudes.

Meeting Tellinger was an absolute disappointment. He relies on charm and, where that fails, arrogance. He was unable to provide practical answers supporting the Ubuntu Party's manifesto. Read more...
