ANC asks Zille why she hates blacks

2012-05-11 10:38

Cape Town - Western Cape Premier Helen Zille was asked in the provincial legislature why she hated black people so much, Die Burger reported on Friday.

Speaker Richard Majola on Thursday banned ANC MPL Patrick McKenzie from asking Zille: "Premier, why do you hate black people so much?"

McKenzie asked why Zille often used derogatory language to refer to blacks, referring specifically to her "refugee" and "professional blacks" tweets, as well as a statement in 1999, in which she referred to several women in the National Assembly, saying: "They're taking up space there, earning a salary, eating a big lunch, packing padkos and driving away in a big C-class Mercedes Benz without making any contribution."

Zille defended her tweets, saying they were neither insulting to blacks, nor that her 1999 statement referred to black women specifically.

She said her words were being twisted, and that this was a clear example of how obsessed with race the ANC was.

"All they're doing is making sure that people continue to hate each other so that they can carry on winning elections," she said.

'Horrifically insulting question'

McKenzie then attempted to ask his question.

"That is a horrifically insulting question," Zille responded.

The ANC in the Western Cape later said in a statement that under Zille's leadership, the province was fast becoming one of racial hate, and it was dismayed by her attitude.

"The ANC expects better from this premier as she has to instead assist to break down racial conflict and build cohesion in government and the province. When one looks at her and her party's record, it seems to be anti-black as perceptions are growing that black people feel unwelcome in this province.

"The DA and Zille don't help to allay adverse views by making loose remarks that hurt other people, especially blacks. Zille's reactions in the legislature also don't help to change the opinion of blacks," said McKenzie.

    It's same as asking the ANC: Why are so many corrupt officials belonging to the ANC?

      mariuskowie - 2012-05-11 11:03

      @lmadikwe. Very true. It is the same as asking Zuma if he still hits his wive's.

      Peter - 2012-05-11 11:05

      "All they're doing is making sure that people continue to hate each other so that they can carry on winning elections," she said. @Imadikwe --- Exactly! So her above statement is SPOT on.

      Greg - 2012-05-11 11:15

      WTF, are they actually being serious...not one of those references by Zille has anything to do specifically with black people...it just reinforces what we all all ready know, the ANC is full of absolute retards!!

      John - 2012-05-11 11:16

      is there not any bigger pressing issues that should be discussed at this level

      Farmworker - 2012-05-11 11:20

      @Imadikwe thus a very good point, I guess it is instinct she and they can't give an answer to those questions. But I personally wish i could get to hear her answer as to why she is doing it

      eradingoana - 2012-05-11 11:26

      The ANC is trying to score political points on race which is embarassing.

      atholl.hay - 2012-05-11 11:34

      Ooo major chips on the shoulder here! I have no doubt that Helen Zille does not hate blacks (horrifically insulting accusation indeed!) but like me, I'm sure she hates politicians who were responsible for losing R20 billion, I repeat R20 BILLION, to corruption last year.

      Jacqui - 2012-05-11 11:42

      Farmworker, she told you why she was doing 'it'. Attention span not long enough?.

      Bob - 2012-05-11 12:41

      Alicia, you have hit the nail right on the head, I actually believe they, the ANC have gone too far with their corruption and racist policies, they are running scared believing they might just get voted out very soon, and if they do there isn't won't be enough space to build prisons once the true extent of the corruption is exposed.

      Fredster - 2012-05-11 12:49

      There is a difference in hating someone, and hate what they do

      thozi - 2012-05-11 13:10

      ... and blacks show their appreciation for the love they get from the ANC by violently demostrating against its Service Delivery throughout the country... how ungrateful.

      Christopher - 2012-05-11 13:21

      Zille." Well Patrick, I hate blacks because you black" any more questions Patrick? Sarcasm before everyone thinks I hate black people to. I don't. it would be my stupid answer to a stupid question.

      tshepo.ally - 2012-05-11 13:27

      @Thozi, what love are you talking bout? what does ANC know bout love? Service delivery? they don't know the meaning of that. @Imadikwe, you can ask that again.

      Nyiks11 - 2012-05-11 13:44

      @Lmadikwe " It's same as asking the ANC: Why are so many corrupt officials belonging to the ANC? " Because the ANC has the majority / most officials .Even during the reign of the NP most corrupt officials were from it and not from the labour party of Rev Allan Hendrickse. Corrupt officials always gravitate towards the majority party , that is politics for you .

      John - 2012-05-11 11:13

      seems the anc in western cape has an inferioity complex.

      Frank - 2012-05-11 11:15

      Patrick McKenzie is just another in a long line of gravy train ANC hangers-on desperate to keep his place at the trough. Zille would wipe the floor with this fool and the only reason he has to stir up controversy is because his youngest child is still at school and he has to toe the party line to get her through university. Spineless yobbo!!

      Mark - 2012-05-11 11:16

      She needs to say something along the lines of, 'Asking that question says more about you and your warped perspective of the world than any answer I could give you would say about me.' Seriously, why does she rise to this kindergarten grade bait? It's like a little schoolyard bully going up to the smart kid and asking, 'Hey Dummy.. Why are you so stupid Dummy Dummy?! Hahaha.. I just proved you're dumb because I asked you why you're so dumb hahah!' This mental midget McKenzie accomplished nothing with this stunt other than to reveal that he possesses the mind of a child.

      Patsy - 2012-05-11 13:27

      I believe the refugees are educational refugees going to the Western Cape for better education. Once that has been gained, the educated people will realise that voting ANC is NOT a good idea. They won't be so easily brainwashed by politicians who tell lies, make false promises etc.

    The ANC is determined to destabilise the Western Cape by trying to cause division amongst all of us who live here. ANC wake up! Stop insulting Helen Zille and try taking some notes instead. The Western Cape is the best run province in SA , and yes it is under the leadership of a white woman, so what? Every province the ANC run is in a mess, due to corrupt officials and a lack of basic knowledge. The only people always harping on and on about racism is the ANC. Get over yourselves, stop pointing fingers at everyone else to deflect attention from your own shortcomings. Get your act together and do something about the shocking state of crime, poverty and lack of education in this country!

THEY are the one at the moment taking up space and not contributing to the welfare of all people in the Western CApe. When they were in charge, they messed things up, and noe because life has slowly improved for mot of our inhabitants, they start throwing mud to try and show their followers what a lovely bunch of people they are, "earning" their wages in the W.C.

Can't comment on her 'professional black' tweet as I never saw or followed that. Believe her comment about refugees was taken out of context but that she should have apologized sooner rather than later for offending people. Wonder what he means by 'Zille's reactions in the legislature also don't help to change the opinion of blacks.' Whose opinion? Also, if the Speaker had banned the question from being asked in the provincial legislature, why the hell is it reported on News24?

It's about time everyone stands up against the ANC. Im so tired of their racist remarks against anyone who is not black... It is so obvious. We need a change of government now or SA is doomed. the ANC is a racist anti-white party preying on the uneducated for votes. That's why they don't put effort into education. It's definitely time for a change...

    Again? Everytime ANC looses the intelectual battle, they resort to stirring up emotions,and unfortunately it works on the feeble minded. If you mr. Makenzi are so worried about the blacks then why do you not speak out against the money being stolen? Which could be aimed at enriching the underprivaleged. Not one of you guys spoke out against 'shoot the boer' instead they celebrated it no matter how much it offended others. You are not concerned about anyone,you are realising that the D.A is making steady progress now you want to deceive people with this question.

  • attie.snyders - 2012-05-11 11:11

    Question to the ANC: Where does the biggest growth of the DA comes from? Why is this happening? It is because the people of SA is seeing through the ANC and that is that they don't care about them, and they feel welcome in the DA. So don't come with your stupid questions. Stop with this racial thing. Is that all you can talk about. You are ruling this country, start ruling. Zille is running the Western Cape and doing a good job of it. The people of WP is happy check the surveys that was done.

  • Theunis - 2012-05-11 11:11

    The anc, guys now is worrying because their fair peace and reconcilliation programme which they introduced without having a plan that will ensures, that there is no certain individual within that community will resist to accept us as human being and if it may happen they will do plan B has brought shame and anger within the black people.\r\nThese people their calling us with names, look the paliement programmes on tv you will see that questions asked by white coleague are intending to undermine and disgrace black people in each and everything black people are trying to do.\r\nI don't hear them trying to assist instead they are crying that the black people are in the government and now they can't enjoy what they have been enjoying as whites.\r\nBut however, the ANC is the only organisation that loves them and as a result it doesn't want any body to speak about freedom charter which threatned them of their wealth.\r\nGood-de klerk, good-zille

      The only thing the ANC love is your tax money and the power that they can abuse.

      "no certain individual within that community will resist to accept us as human" You are not a victim godammit...get over yourself. There was a time when the world sympathized with you (for a good reason). That party is over now - the world feels f'all for your sorry @$$ anymore. Get up and live life.

    WOW! a "as well as a statement in 1999" just goes to show you... the ANC dont want to forget!!

  • frederik - 2012-05-11 11:14

    That might be a good thing as I feel unwelcome in the other 8 provinces......

  • RoadSideBomer - 2012-05-11 11:14

    Since we all know who the media belongs to, Me thinks the ANC knows that they are not in demand every more, and are trying to sow diversity, because suddenly we are flooded with all these racist articles making black rallying behind them again, real communist tactics

  • trevor.roberts.148 - 2012-05-11 11:14

    This is a definite case of the ANC being racist.

    All the ANC wants to do is to create a one state party that will govern south africa forever, they (ANC) don't like the idea of south africa having a strong opposition party because they can't imagine life without being on the gravy train, that's why they can do all they can to play race game so that people will hate Helen zille and her party, that's all the farce is for, this is exactly what happens to our neighbouring Zimbabwe one state party now Zimbabwe is at the same league as Somalia,Rwanda and both south and North Sudan in terms of poverty and dysfunctional states.

    What a ridiculous question to be asked in the provincial legislature. There may well be a few black people that HZ dislikes. By the same token I would guess there are a few white people also.

  • Oistar - 2012-05-11 11:17

    There is no end to the ANC's murky behaviour. Glad I am not black, I would be so embarressed if the ANC represented me. Grow up ANC.

  • Tshiamo - 2012-05-11 11:17

    Convenient time to take racist cards out of the closet to divert attention from bread and butter issues affecting the "masses" it seems. How rich of the ANC!

  • John - 2012-05-11 11:17

    Dear ANC. White people do not hate Blacks in South Africa. If we hated Blacks then we could have eradicated the Blacks in South Africa from the face of the earth like the Australians did with the Aboriginal tribes. The Americans and the Canadians did with the Indian tribes in the North Americas. The Aboriginal tribes should have been now a population of 40 million the last count was 324 000. The Indians should have been a population of 280 million, last count 6 million. So please ANC if you stop with your corruption, spend money well on infrastructure and nobody not even Premier Zille hates you, you think people hate you because you feel the guilt all the time from stealing the peoples money. Look in these difficult economic times our President have 8 wife's, 35 children and more, who is paying for that party is it himself or the taxpayer? Look at the corruption on local government level the ANC is doing nothing. Govern the country well and everybody will vote for you even Premier Zille will fall in with your party. She was part of Black Sash to help to get you into power. Now she sees the corruption by the ANC she is trying to get you on the right track. The Eastern Cape made such a mess of everything by corruption now the people are becoming refugees in the Western Cape and the Western Cape do not have the funds to stand in for the corruption in the Eastern Cape. Stop partying and govern the country the party is over after 18 years, get it into your heads.

    Still applying the old principle of devide and conquer that has kept the anc in power since 1994 l see.. They just hate this woman for not being able to take the Western cape from her and for her dynamic leadership. Keep on fighting the good fight Zille!
