The ANC Propaganda Machine

2013-04-26 09:03
As a person who is very politically active I would like to voice my opinion regarding the pathetic attempt of the ANC to write and swear the DA out of the struggle. I am a very proud DA member and would like to clarify that I speak on behalf of myself and not the DA or anyone else for that matter.

I was privileged enough to see the “controversial” pamphlet with Helen Suzman and Nelson Mandela roughly 3 weeks before it was made public with the event that launched called “Know your DA”. When I saw it for the first time my initial response was that it was very brave of the DA to put a picture of a former ANC leader on the cover of a DA pamphlet. I then caught myself thinking that and realized that it was done to show how the DA also fought against Apartheid even from the early days of its existence under the Progressive Party.

I instantly knew why this pamphlet was needed and whole-heartedly agreed with it. The fact is that the ANC uses dirty tactics every chance they get to win voters over, when it’s election time you will hear the ramblings of old:

1. Your grant will be taken away if you vote against the ANC,
2. We will know who you vote for and come for you,
3. Mandela will get sick and die if you don’t vote for the ANC,
4. The Ancestors will be upset if you don’t vote ANC.

It is because of the ANC’s dirty and shameless tactics that it’s needed to state the obvious to the masses out there. Just this week a study was released that shows that 50% of the black youth believe that if the DA wins, Apartheid will come back.

Now please explain to me how a person that is a “born free” could think these things up. Surely someone, whether an ignorant parent, spiteful teacher or ANC official said that just shows the reason the DA have to make a pamphlet stating the obvious. The ANC is scared and will go to the extreme to keep these inconvenient truths, which are discussed in the pamphlets, away from the masses by claiming it to be false or using their top leaders to call “foul”. You see the only weapon the ANC has left is the one of fear, saying that if they are voted out then Apartheid will come back.

The masses are realizing that the ANC can’t deliver, they are slowly realizing that for the last 20 years the ANC has failed them and the country and the only way the ANC can keep their voters loyal is by doing what they are doing right now in response to the campaign by the DA, this of course would be lying, spreading fear, keeping the masses uneducated and playing the Apartheid card.

To all the ANC members commenting negatively on this campaign by the DA, please tell me exactly what is false in the pamphlet, instead of name calling or simply saying it’s false I challenge you to question your party for the first time instead of blindly following it off the moral cliff.
