The stinking, disgusting mess that is South Africa

24 September 2012, 18:44

For the first time in my life - and that’s going back some - I’m embarrassed to call myself a South African or to acknowledge that it is the land of my birth, that I still call it home and that I carry its passport.

I have no more pride in a country where people of value are treated like vermin and the vermin are free to run around raping, killing and pillaging. I can have no faith in a country whose men rape old women - and babies – or in a country where barbarians murder people for their wallets and cell phones. I can have no more hope for a country where those responsible for maintaining law and order, and good governance, have no backbone and where those tasked with protecting the law-abiding are useless, and indeed often criminals themselves.

Such a country is only worthy of contempt and that is all I can today feel for South Africa – contempt. Total and complete contempt for a country where police chiefs stand accused of corruption and murder - but they are protected by the state and their defense is paid for by us - contempt for a government that blatantly steals from its citizens, contempt for business leaders who flaunt their wealth whilst their employees are starving and contempt for a system where the law-abiding citizenry must arm themselves because the police, and the justice system, are a joke.

South Africa has become a filthy, maggot-infested cesspool of degraded, hopeless, poverty-stricken people and inept, useless and corrupt leaders with mindless violence on the level of genocide all of which should be sickening and disgusting to anybody with an iota of compassion - anybody with any standards and values. It’s literally a pig sty, a place undeserving of being called a democratic state because it has become an ugly country filled with low-life, hate, self-loathing and self-serving people.

The ANC, thanks to their “policy” of appeasement to anybody and everybody – just to retain power and continue looting the treasury – coupled with their inability to govern, or manage the country, its people and its economy and with their utter lack of morals and values of any kind have managed to ruin a country where once lived law-abiding citizens who worked hard, played hard and in their spare time partook of some of the most glorious scenery in the world.

Today it’s a place where seemingly every person – from street vendors to business leaders to the thieving cadres who “manage” the day to day affairs of the state – is littering, stealing, robbing and displaying total contempt for their fellow man, their country and their Christian values.

We’ve become the new Sodom and Gomorrah and we are undeserving of any sympathy or empathy because we, as a people, have let it become so. We’ve allowed the filth, the litter and the garbage that we see all around us take us into its clutches and today we are drowning in it whilst we drive our fancy cars, live in our fortress-like homes and shop in our up-market malls. Yech!

So, whilst I sit today at work up here in Africa - where people don’t run around like savages killing one another for no reason other than that they can – I wish you South Africans a good Heritage Day, something you no longer have.

Enjoy it for tomorrow you must once more steal, defraud, maim, kill and pretend that you are civilized people living a good life in a decent country. Good luck with that.
