The recent outbursts by the President of the ANCYL are of great concern. What kind of democracy tolerates the threat of lethal force against a political opponent?
We’ve just come out of a system which did just that – kill political opponents. I note that Zuma sat in silence, effectively condoning the threats to his opponents and not even referring to it in his subsequent address. Zuma therefore supports the view.
These people are just politicians! They lie and kiss babies every couple of years to get the voter to give them a high-paying job. Its money and power they care about and nothing else. To be willing to kill for a personality displays a slave-like mindset, like that found in a cult.
Democracy means tolerance for other views, no matter your opinion on them, or your opinion of the person delivering it. But to threaten death and destruction like that leaves one chilled to the bone.
What would the ANCYL do if the populace voted them out? Start another struggle? Kill the people who have defeated them in the polls? Seems the truth is becoming clear that the ANC only accepts democracy when it wins.
This ANC is becoming the monster it fought so hard against. No wonder the hardest Nats found the coziest home in the ANC!
Ek, veral sê “ditto”!!
Wat sê julle?
