The real idea behind EFF's latest PR stunts

2018-01-20 22:45

You can just see the thoughts turning around in Malema's mind. 'We're getting too low a profile'. 'Too near the ANC in our ideology'. 'There's an election next year'. So we'd better get in the public eye again.

'What can we do?' Oh, there's a tasteless and stupid ad by H&M which stirs up deep-seated feelings in Black people; a concept that has been perpetuated over centuries. It's hurtful and very effective. So what can we do?

Protest? Nah - too low key.

I know. Let's get some of our members to go and trash H&M stores. That'll get in the news and on TV. Plus stir up racist feelings which have always served our enemy, the ANC, rather well. Of course, I, Malema, won't know anything about it. It'll be our members' idea. OK, go for it boys.

Never mind that we'll affect the salaries of workers in the stores. Or that some of our guys will help themselves to H&M stuff in the process. It'll get the EFF name right up front again on TV. And that's all that matters to us.

Next, what shall we do?

Ah, Overvaal! Now THERE'S a great opportunity to stir up some racial hatred and get EFF on TV again. All in a good cause of course. We don't really care about whether those 55 students are admitted into an Afrikaans-medium school or not, or the real merits of the case.

Because here we can stir up some REAL racial hatred - which strongly influences Black voters - by shouting 'Kill the Boer'.

Does it matter that we're now again helping to further divide South Africa which is painfully trying to recover from the oppressive apartheid years? Of course not. We'll get on TV again. That's all that matters - the extra votes we're gonna get.

Ah - PR. Great stuff! It's what we, the EFF desperately need to increase the miserable 8% share of the votes we got last elections. Are we capable of actually governing a country? That's not the point. All we want is the power and access to the taxpayers' money pot.

Now what else can we do to stir up some lovely, newsworthy racial hatred? Any ideas, boys?
