The DA is a party for privileged whites. Whites that have no idea about the realities of ordinary South Africans and their struggle to survive. It is still Constantia against Diepsloot or any informal settlement for that matter. Nothing more, nothing less.
Before you start frothing around the mouth, allow me to give you an unbiased opinion of the DA because I don’t vote for them or the corrupt ANC.
About a year ago Trevor Manuel said on television in a political discussion that they will get the Western Cape, by hook or by crook. Now look how easy it has been for the ANC to destabilise the Western Cape by sending in trade unions to cause the destruction we are currently witnessing in the Winelands. The ANC doesn’t care for the fact that they have destroyed export sales and have diminished much needed income flow from wine and fruit exports.
While Helen Zille thought she was untouchable in the Western Cape, she got a very unpleasant surprise this last week and a bit.
Why has this happened? Because the foundations of the DA house is built on sand and irrelevant issues in the diabolical political situation we find ourselves in. In essence it is still a political party with its foundations firmly in the Apartheid years when they opposed Afrikaners and saw themselves superior to the low life Afrikaners as was the case at the time. A snotty bunch sipping tea from Royal Albert china in the shade of the sumptuous verandas of Houghton and Constantia…..
One of the wise contributors on News24, namely PWS69 had the following to say and this must rank as of the wisest political words I have ever read. He said:
“It is a popularity contest. Tell the voters exactly what they want to hear, irrespective of whether you can, or will, do it or not. That is not relevant. What is relevant is getting into a position so that you can implement your policies. The best policy in the world is useless if you cannot implement it”
Please re-read PWS69’s words again before you read any further, and ponder for a moment on what he had said.
To simplify the South African political landscape for you the reader, let me base my theories loosely on statistics of the census. 50 Million people, 5 Million whites and 45 million blacks. So let us assume 22.5 Million of the black voters are female. I am specifically going to target the female voters because it is easier to corrupt a man than it is a woman. Women are far more practical than us men. No debate about that issue.
If you were to astutely work to get the votes of 22.5 million black female voters, how would you go about the issue? Bear in mind we are talking about 22.5 Million females living in dismal circumstances and we are not talking about rich bitches like the premiers of certain provinces or newly rich madams in Sandton driving around in Range Rovers.
Those 22.5 Million female voters are mentally conditioned to believe a MAN is the leader. I am not going to get into a discussion with women on the merits of my statement. A man must lead. We are talking to black female voters who don’t drive Range Rovers or have snotty private school accents acquired in white private schools.
Basically what I am saying is that this not the time and place to be pushing gender issues when our land is really burning now. We need to take a shortcut to save ourselves because the ANC has now proven over 18 years they are the fastest way to our demise possible.
So what would you do to get into power as a political party?
Have a white Madam politically abusing a sophisticated black girl with a snotty accent to convince 22.5 Million primitive black women to vote for you?
Wouldn’t you play dirty as the ANC is doing and get yourself a black boy with a normal South African accent to show the voters a way forward? There are lots of them around. Go look for yourself on our university campuses. The boys are getting clever now and please don’t confuse the 20 ANCYL members on our campuses as representative of all the black youth.
African tradition dictates that a MAN must lead. Live with it and stop fighting it.
A white Madam from Constantia isn’t the answer to an African problem. Good as she is, she won’t go any further.
If she was clever she would play dirty and do what PWS69 said in his wise comment, but that won’t happen. Not in our lifetime… and with that we have lost an opportunity to save our country.
