Treat everyone the same

2016-06-30 06:00

THE dictionary gives the following definitions to these words:

Treason (noun) - the crime of betraying one’s country.

Betray (verb) - to not be loyal to your country, often by doing something harmful.

Recently a group of “right wingers” were sentenced to lengthy jail terms for secretly conspiring to overthrow the government and for damaging state property.

Currently the “left wingers” are openly doing the same. Threats of prosecution for malicious damage to state and private property and hate speech come to nothing.

The betrayal of our country lies in the acts of war against the government and the public under the auspices of unrest, protests and affirmative action.

Popular propaganda wants us to accept that the killing of politicians and the billions of rands in damage caused by burning state property is just due to “unhappy” voters exercising their democratic right.

We must believe that the looting of state funds and the running down of the country’s infrastructure is just a temporary problem for the last 20-plus years. At every next election there are promises of change.

Treason is treason whether you are right, left or left of left.

Crime is crime no matter where and how it is conducted. People who do crime are criminals. People who take from the citizens without asking are thieves. People who kill for whatever reason are murderers. Lies are lies even if spoken by politicians.

We need a justice system that treats right wingers and left wingers the same. We need to have these actions treated as treason against the people (government is the servants of the people, not their masters)

As a South African, who believes that bad people are less than the good people, and for every bad deed there are thousands of good deeds, it is unfortunate that bad news runs around the Earth a few times before the good news can put on its running shoes.

We stink as a nation as a result of current politics. In the centre?
