Don't feed the media, Malema urges

2011-04-15 22:12

Johannesburg - The media is the ANC's main opposition, the party’s youth league president Julius Malema told hundreds of supporters outside the South Gauteng High Court on Friday.

"The main opposition of the ANC is the media... do not feed the opposition," Malema told the cheering crowd, repeating comments made by ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe on Tuesday.

He urged them not to give the media "negative material".

"You don't have to explain to anyone why you are here."

He told them the trial in which he faces hate speech charges was about "burning" the struggle song "shoot the boer" (awudubhule ibhunu) and was not just about an individual on trial.

Singing and machine guns

He thanked Deputy Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom for his testimony in court on Friday and told the crowd never to retreat.

"We are here to defend a revolutionary song," Malema said before singing "shoot to kill, kill our, shoot to kill, kill our... kiss the boer, the farmer, kiss the boer, the farmer".

He then mimicked the sound of a machine gun while making the sign of a gun with his hand and concluded with the word "attention", at which the crowd cheered.

He handed the microphone to ANC MP Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who said what hurt her the most was seeing young faces in the crowd, most of them born after 1976. It also hurt her to see the ANC on trial again.

"Your heritage is on trial," Madikizela-Mandela said.

"Tactics" were being used to derail what those in the struggle had fought for. She said this year she would be celebrating her 75th birthday, and was still talking to her grandchildren and great grandchildren about fighting for their rights.

"When I sleep forever we will realise what we have fought for."

AfriForum to lay more charges

Once Malema and Madikizela-Mandela had left a man in the crowd took the microphone and began singing "kill the boer, kill the farmer". ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu tapped him on the shoulder and asked him to stop.

On Thursday civil rights group AfriForum said it intended laying another hate speech charge against Malema, and one against Shivambu, for their singing of the song outside the court this week. Shivambu denied they had done this.

Malema is on trial in the Equality Court on a charge of hate speech brought by AfriForum over his singing a struggle song containing the lyrics "shoot the boer" or "awudubhule ibhunu".

The trial was adjourned to Monday at 10:00.

    "You don't have to explain to anyone why you are here."....Hmmmm...Malema, now you have really confused your support base

      Francois - 2011-04-15 23:14

      The media feeds on izinyesi, especially if it is Inyesi Malema. Cockroach Malema, you are the feedstock for the media, they love you, because you sell papers!

      tonykzn - 2011-04-16 00:15

      It's a pity "The Media" isn't contesting the upcoming elections: it sounds as if Malema thinks they might win.

      Jo - 2011-04-16 00:46

      Once again, a very revealing statement that shows us exactly what's going on. When will the ANCYL understand that the media simply reflect the actions, choices, statements and policies of the ANCYL? When the media approach them for clarification, they either say that it's no-one's business or make it worse. I can't figure out where this refusal to see anything from someone else's point of view comes from.

      malema - Le petit gendarme h t t p://w w w.theaugeanstables.com/2010/04/04/south-africas-second-coming-the-nongqawuse-syndrome/ The young blacks searching for guidance and guardianship since the legacy of racist ANC profligacy takes it's toll of the irresponsibility of the parents comes home to roost - and they are directionless, have no moral fibre and are spineless creatures led around by their black noses!

      OuWitBooi - 2011-04-16 09:03

      @Jo - indeed this is a revealing statement, but even more so than you have pointed out. Several of the top ANC cadres have recently made similar comments aimed against the media. It is obviously very high on their agenda. This is why the ANC has gone the route of trying to muzzle the media with their Information Protection Bill. Once that legislation is in place there will no longer be a watchdog to protect us. Then the ANC will be able to go after the opposition parties without fear of the truth being revealed. This is all part of the ANC's plan to move to a one party state (like every other African "liberation" movement). They are all Marxist/Leninist at heart and see a one party state as the answer, despite the fact that it has never worked anywhere outside China.

      When is the s.african parliament implementing the media "muzzle" bill. You would think they would have done it by now - the international community doesn't give a shyte what happens here - it would be easy as pie. I guesse its a matter of time

  • umlaut - 2011-04-15 22:30

    This guy is negative material.

  • Thandiwe83 - 2011-04-15 22:33

    Erm. Malema - a free press in a democracy always takes the government to task - deal with the task better and they take you to task less!!!

      Jungle - 2011-04-16 08:16

      Very very well said! This is true in every democratic country. The media have a field day with the ANC because the ANC make it easy for the media to find fault. Start doing a better job and the media might actually start focusing on our real achievements...

      MathysTheart - 2011-04-16 14:41

      Doesn't the ANC own SABC and a bunch of radio stations? "The main opposition of the ANC is the media... do not feed the opposition," The ANC is its own worst enemy.

  • CC - 2011-04-15 22:33

    Mr Malema, please practise what you preach! Per definition, your followers will "follow" you - so if you say something stupid, so will they - you all have more or less the same IQ - take it the way you like...

  • edvermaak - 2011-04-15 22:40

    This is the very same media that believed in the ANC and helped the peaceful transition to democracy(no more)and got these thiefs into power. Nothing like biting the hand... that feeds...

  • Macho Mike - 2011-04-15 22:45

    Eish Malema, you are the negative material the media feeds on.Carry on, the rest of SA and the world is watching, seeing you for what you really are - a scumbag.

  • za101 - 2011-04-15 22:52

    while malema lives in sandton, wears top clothes, eats top food, drives in top cars............his supporters can live in poverty. even if they take the mines away......they will become nothing more than some who win the jackport, only to become poor and sick later on

      Ozymandios - 2011-04-16 08:31

      Yes za101, but Malema wears, buys and owns all that Colonialism brought to this country and revels in the materialism it offers him. Yet he decrys it at every turn but shares none of it with his followers. So why then does the press not point this out to him? We know his followers can't work this out because their level of intelect borders on an IQ of 4 majored in supidity and full stops. But if Juliarse Dilema was constantly remineded in the press of this hypocracy then maybe just maybe he would go back to wearing his loin cloth and carrying knobkierrie around with him. Sorry a stick - one can't carry traditional weapons anymore. Sorry for that fau pax.

  • Blip - 2011-04-15 23:07

    Malema doesn't like competition when it comes to media-feeding negative things.

  • Gramsci - 2011-04-15 23:10

    The media are out only protection against corruption by the new elites. What Malema seems to have forgotten is that freedom of speech and information is a right of ALL South Africans; not just the press. By attacking the press, he is basically attacking the freedom of speech of every citizen. In fact, he opposes the very principle of CITIZENSHIP. Instead, people should be (in his view) passive voter fodder, drinking in every lie uttered by any politician too craven to get a proper job and actually earn a living like everyone else.

  • Rudi - 2011-04-15 23:14

    No no no!! He told them to shut up because they'll split on him by showing EXACTLY what they mean when they sing the damn song.

Gaddafi , Chavez ,Hamaz, Ping pong poo from North Korea..& they are all spoiling for a fight ...with the witch tokoloshe winnie mandela ...

      Jo - 2011-04-16 00:48

      There are even more millions of South Africans who find it all a bit expensive, hypocritical and wearisome - have a little faith in your neighbours, Gundaan.

      Roger - 2011-04-16 01:14

      this guy is a brilliant polotician. The more you deride him, the stronger his supporters and followers will defend him. He said the ANC is the government, which so many understand and believe to be true. If only more people undertood what goverment actually is. Voter education is the only way to slow this juggernaut down. Many quite literally believe that if they do not vote ANC, their social grants, and all other goverment help will cease.

      Together - 2011-04-16 15:34

      I don't agree, Roger - a brilliant politician would be fooling us into trusting him and brining value to his party/organisation. I think we're looking at classic narcissim here: A narcissist is not capable of putting the organization's needs before his or her own needs.Researchers have found that a narcissist reacts much more emotionally than a non-narcissist, sometimes with "narcissistic rage" when his (or her) ego is threatened. Social comparison information is especially salient as the narcissist processes social information in terms of its relevance to the self, that is, he reacts to negative feedback with more anger and aggression and lower self-esteem than a non-narcissist. In fact his mood and self-esteem fluctuations can usually be attributed to social comparison information. "Overall, individuals high in narcissism displayed amplified responses to social comparison information, experiencing greater positive affect from downward comparisons and greater hostile affect from upward comparisons."Ref For example, it has been recognized for some time that narcissists prize intellectual performance above almost everything else,Ref so a better qualified work colleague would likely evoke a hostile affect through upward comparison. Because of a propensity to internalize failure, the narcissist's emotional response to failure is to feel shame, as opposed to guilt felt by people without the disorder. So in order to avoid shame, which the narcissist feels must be avoided at all costs, he externalizes blame for negative events. As he feels someone must be guilty, he almost always attributes blame to others. Only when his self-esteem is particularly high, perhaps through some positive feedback he has engineered, does he accept blame, and only then if it can be seen as a magnanimous gesture. A narcissist is someone who is overtly or subtly arrogant, exhibitionistic, vain, manipulative, and greedy for admiration.Ref Narcissistic rage, character assassination and projection are some of the overt ways in which the narcissist expresses himself. For example, she may envy a work colleague's beauty, and project her feelings into her colleague by accusing her of being envious. Projection in teams is particularly prevalent. The denial of remorse and gratitude by the narcissist are two of the more subtle ways used to protect an internal sense of grandiosity.Ref An example of a narcissist's ability to be subtle might be when he arrives late for a meeting. Rather than offer a sincere apology, he may blame someone else for keeping him talking, thus externalizing the fault ("It's not my fault") and maintaining his sense of grandiosity.

You know, as a Christian, my instruction is to love you with all that i am and have(Mark chapter 12 verse 30), but i must confess, my heart is filled with intense dislike and intense disdain and I actually despise you. and stop playing the race card!! you do what you do for your own gain only and not for the poor and previously disenfranchised.

  • peace_piece - 2011-04-16 00:29

    "We are here to defend a revolutionary song," Malema said before singing "shoot to kill, kill our, shoot to kill, kill our... kiss the boer, the farmer, kiss the boer, the farmer". I can do one better: Shoot to kiss, kiss my koes, boer the farmer, kiss my cousin, shoot the hand that feeds you. I'm sure that would get an even bigger crowd response. He might not know much about woodwork, but sure knows how to make up lyrics on the fly, so to speak.

  • Daniel Jones - 2011-04-16 01:20

    The ONLY option for SA is for her to split into one for Black African's, and one for her minority groups who have been gradually pushed aside with the independence (or in SA's case democracy) of every Afr country. I know the idea sounds far fetched, but Pakistan and India had split for a similar reason, people just could not live together. As whites and other minorities (such as mixed race, and peoples from Indian decent, etc) we will have to agree that we are just minorities, so the majority of the land should go to the blacks, its fair, so the best option is for minorities to revert to historically non black lands (notably the WC). Some of the infrastructure is there, but issues of water and electricity will have to be dealt with. If the Isrealis can, then so can many millions of highly educated and entrepreneurial whites, mixed race and Indians). The main contentions will be two fold, what about those who do not identify themselves as black, nor mixed race, well they will have to have the option to remain or live in the WC, or move to black SA. And secondly, what about the black residents of the WC, well as was the case with the split of Pakistan and India, the preference would be for minorities in black SA to move to the WC, and for blacks to leave the WC. Harsh, and contentious, but its been done before. The alternative is a race war, where no-one would win (although some on this forum would have you believe blacks would win purely based on numbers. Not so!!

    The media has never been interested in things that are well run, things that work, things that do what they were designed for. The media has always thrived on the unusual, the cruel, the sad, the ridiculous. This is not a complaint. If I have a completely normal day where everything went according to plan, I don't really have much to talk about at the pub that night. We talk about the interesting things, the setbacks, ideas, solutions. This is all the press are doing. The DA runs things like they should be run, which to the media is boring. The ANC supplies disrespect, scandal, corruption, racism and sheer blind stupidity. Don't blame the media. Blame yourselves. If you can think that far.

      Black Sense - 2011-04-16 03:54

      You are right about the media's focus but are unfortuanately a politcal partisan which detracts from your posts potential. There are many good hardworking and competent people in the ANC yet you've tarred them with the same brush as the bad ones. No different to Malema standing up and saying "Boere" are bad. Generalisations and stereotypes are fertile ground for hate. A big frustration for many ANC people is they get no support in the media and none of the good they do is recongised either by the Media or by the likes of you. There are good people in every group including the ANC, DA and even the Freedom Front. Respect and acknowledge them all.

      peace_piece - 2011-04-16 04:14

      Black sense - you are right, there are good people as you say, but the julias is gaining political momentum based on racial hatred - that is just wrong. It is so wrong, it tarnishes the whole ANC movements image and all the heroes that built it.

      Simpiwe Cele - 2011-04-16 06:16

Do we reward this NEW ANC gaggle of non-starters with our votes ? for old times sake ? I think NOT

      OuWitBooi - 2011-04-16 08:52

      @Black Sense. You are correct. There are good people in the ANC. People like Trevor Manuel. It's just a pity that the 99% who are rotten corrupt greedy incompetents give the good 1% a bad name.

      Together - 2011-04-16 15:24

      I hear what you say, Black Sense, but all the good people in the ANC don't seem to have any power to deal with the few bad ones. This is where the rest of SA can help you - by having the freedom to call them out, expose them, tackle them. The rest of us would like nothing better than to have the ANC that supported the Freedom Charter back - we don't know what the current ANC even represents, other than a few loud personal interests and cover-ups.

  • vusi22 - 2011-04-16 07:38

      Are people singing the Stem? I can only imagine how frustrating this must be for anyone who is waiting for service delivery, or waiting to have some corrupt housing list sorted out, or losing their job because a yet another strike has broken the business that employed them. This song brings them no practical assistance, and I can only imagine how tired they are of all the words, words, words. I can only imagine how must anger parents to discover that their kids are standing outside courthouses instead of sitting in classrooms laying down a real ticket to the future. How are you able to expand your views over the noise? There are cults that use repetitive chanting and singing to keep their victims' minds captive - are you really free?

Thank you SABC for your part in the media that Julius hates, to show how violent the police were to that black man, killing him in the street, no matter how wrong he was or how right he was, he was beaten something else by a bunch of hooligans, looking for trouble. Thahnk God again, for the media. There is an opposition party who certainly does not want them around, and we can see why.....

  • Justathouht - 2011-04-16 08:30

    Is Malema implying that his followers behave only while the eyes of the media are on them? All is quiet now about the Protection of Information Bill, but methinks this issue will be legislated post haste after the municipal elections, effectively muzzling the media and leaving Malema and his followers to exercise their barbarism unhindered.

    While the ANC continue to rot from within there is another party that hovers in silence and surveys the corrupt doings of the ANC. This party is growing, consisting of all races, respecting the culture of all in our country. Just like the acid mine water that is slowly rising to the surface of our country and destroying our land, so Julius Malema and the pollution surrounding him rise to power to destroy our country. Note, that we refer only to Julius Malema, as the leader of the ANC, for he is the future of the ANC. It’s time that we clean up the toxic acid and make our country our home again. Join us. Viva IFP!

  • bothann - 2011-04-16 09:34

  • sceptic - 2011-04-16 09:59

    Ha Ha, says the man who has been doing nothing but feeding the media with negativity!! Great role model you are!!NOT!!

  • Thabo Matwabeng - 2011-04-16 10:26

    The only why in which the ANC will not feed the media any negative material is if they cease to exist completely; but then there is still the stockpile of crap they've done the last decade to last us a lifetime. Look up 'hypocrite' in the dictionary; it says "refer to ANC".

      thabo jy is dagga-befok

      Jo - 2011-04-16 15:03

      no, Thabo is just airing his opinion - which is a very basic part of freedom. Yo do remember that we are supposed to be free, right?

  • Thabo Matwabeng - 2011-04-16 10:32

    I don't have a tune to go with these lyrics yet: Kill the ANC, Kill the ANC that they should keep on governing is a national tragedy Instead of fixing problems they buy Johnny Walker Instead of building schools, they building business empires Weapons in the Arms Deal a smoke screen for enrichment Every North West town investigated for corruption 1,5 billion Rand they could have spent much better instead the police commissioner, he hangs out with mobsters Kill The ANC, Kill The ANC For us to have a better life Kill the ANC. Maybe it needs a bit more work.

      Thabo, Unfortunately, ANC is like the cANCer cells in a body. They grow and multiply a lot faster than the GOOD cells, while fooling the white blood cells (=ANC supporters) that they are not the enemy. This goes on until the whole body collapses and ALL the cells die. SAD but TRUE.

      Jo - 2011-04-16 15:06

      Not really, ActNow, just remember the 'empty barrels make the most noise' saying - many South Africans don't get to comment, but it doesn't mean that they can't tell right from wrong. They know who is doing what.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt. If only you could be silent Mr. Malema

  • Lang Henning - 2011-04-16 11:56

    It's all so bloody futile. So they kill the boer, what next? Kill the Zulu? Kill the Xhosa? Kill the Sotho? Etcetera?

      MathysTheart - 2011-04-16 14:53

      Who will the ANC hate when the whites are all chased out? The Coulereds? After that it will be all out war between the xhosa's and the zulu's. Humans need someone to hate, it's in their nature.

    Bathathe JuJu bathathe, these white-controlled conservative media with some mentally defeated so-called black middle class journalists is known to us already, for their agenda remain and will always be to hunt down fault lines from our trying government against pressing challenges such as rampant crime & corruption that are not immune from a nation emerging from a deep-rooted socio-economic systematic oppression of the majority blacks by the minority minority whites for a period exceeding 300 years in our own land, we know them in newspapers like City Press, Sunday Times, Radio Shows such as 702 etc. - we no longer even bother to read their "news" or listen to their "analysis" of our current affairs. In actual fact they still think, as if under apartheid, we are not capable of exercising our conscious - we say to hell with them - we shall continue to sing our liberation song even louder until we gain our total economic liberation - in fact they need Mugabe these fools

      I can only imagine how frustrating this must be for anyone who is waiting for service delivery, or waiting to have some corrupt housing list sorted out, or losing their job because a yet another strike has broken the business that emplyed them. This song brings them no practical assistance, and I can only imagine how tired they are of all the words, words, words. I can only imagine how must anger parents to discover that their kids are standing outside courthouses instead of sitting in classrooms laying down a real ticket to the future. How are you able to expand your view over the noise? There are cults that use repetitive chanting and singing to keep their victims' minds captive - are you really free?

      capetonian - 2011-04-16 15:25

      That's why north of the Limpopo you don't find the indigenous populations enjoying a standard of living they should be getting after 50 years of independence from "white' colonial rule!! That's why we have so many immigrant "Africans" living and working in South Africa - so, who are you going to blame for that, hey? After 17 years of ANC rule the signs are already beginning to show here. Get an education and then maybe you will engage your brain before starting your mouth!!

      Charles Kane - 2011-04-18 16:56

      Ja little brother... You speak like a boy who has just returned from the shebeen.

  • 50something - 2011-04-16 14:07

    The media can be your best ally. They turn the enemy if you are your own enemy. If you do garbage, they'll print garbage. Do you see garbage being published about the DA?

  • insane1027 - 2011-04-17 13:06

    " He urged them not to give the media 'negative material'." The media does sometime make stories more juicy, but they are also there to report the news. If you are doing corrupt things the media has every right to give it to the public. The media is picking the ANC apart because it's full of holes. Fix your party and there will be no "negative" news to report on.

  • beicime - 2011-04-17 15:18

    Who needs to feed the media? Malema does it on his own. Not agreeing with the ANC is not anti-patriotic and the ANC does not have all the answers.

  • CPII - 2011-04-17 17:41

    Shoot the boer and shoot the farmer....cmon Malema.....why don't you and your brethren do that....and inherit the wasteland; you and the ANC want....no more WaBenzi, No more BMW, No more Johnny Blue, No more electricity; nothing....inherit the Wasteland!

  • CPII - 2011-04-17 17:51

    Winnie my dear....my dear old GOGO....people born in 76 are now 35..and those born in'94 now 17 he he he........

  • BigSpoon - 2011-04-17 18:38

    You feed the media the most you kak talker! the reason he is telling his followers to stop talking to the media is because, he himself is getting quite imbarrassed on how stupid the supporters sound when interviewed.
