Previously in South Africa, Julius Malema used to head the ANC Youth League, but behaved so badly he got thrown out. He has now started a new party in direct opposition to the ANC called the Economic Freedom Fighters – EFF for short.
He says many things, which of course WE all take out of context, because after all he’s a ‘man of the people’.
When he belonged to the ANC he used to sing ‘Kill the Boer’ songs along with Zuma. They claimed that they weren’t encouraging violence against the whites, just singing their old struggle songs while remembering the past.
Julius, now after just a few short months of EFF – f-ing has already got thousands of followers who are dirt poor but are somehow still spending great globs of money on ‘killing banners’.
The EFF of course says that the banners don’t promote the killing of the whites but rather equality. ( It should be said that one of the banners read ‘Kill them like they killed us’, but the EFF said that wasn’t a sanctioned banner….)
Malema constantly screams about white owned business and land. He wants it taken from the whites and given back to the people. He also says denies advocating violence against the whites.
It’s all very confusing.
His followers however, don’t seem to be hazy on the message. To them it seems clear – kill the whites, grab the land. What they don’t realise of course is that if there is land re-distribution it will be bought by the wealthy black man, not handed out freely to the poor. The whites may be forced to sell at reduced prices but the poor people are still not going to get their hands on it.
The desperate masses are still going to do all the dirty work for unscrupulous politicians who promise them the world. They are still going to be cold and hungry when those same politicians shake the hands of the Black diamond businessmen who will eventually own everything in this little piece of Africa.
It’s truly EFF – ing sad and if it gets any worse it may be truly EFF – ing deadly……
