My Liewe Oom ET
Ag kom nou! ’n Man op jou ouderdom behoort mos nou te weet hoë om homself in die openbaar te gedra. Het jy nou alweer vergeet wat hulle jou in die tronk geleër het? Jy kan mos nie meer in hierdie land rondloop en die ape se standbeelde so blatant beledig nie, -- en nogal hier net voor Kersfees! Wil jy nou wragtig hê jou familie moet die tyd van die jaar vir jou kom kuier in die tronk?
AWB chief causes another stir
A COMPLAINT to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has been lodged against Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) leader Eugene Terre'blanche for a comment he allegedly made in Pretoria over the weekend.
Communications Department official Panyaza Lesufi lodged the formal complaint in his personal capacity with the support of musicians, actors, government officials and communication workers.
"The days of racists having a free reign to insult us and our leaders is over," Lesufi said.
City Press reported on Sunday that Terre'blanche had pointed at the statue of Chief Tshwane at the old Pretoria City Hall and referred to him as an "apie" (monkey).
"It's something we believe is disgusting, and we find it strange that he makes an openly racist statement like that and no one challenges it," Lesufi said. "As South Africans, it falls upon us to raise these things... we are long past that stage."
Lesufi asked the commission to probe the remark and ascertain if the 68-year-old AWB leader had violated his parole conditions.
He called on South Africans, particularly Afrikaners, to urge Terreblanche to apologise.
The SAHRC said the complaint was with its legal services department.
BTW --- It’s okay if old Paul Kruger’s statue in Church Square gets pissed on by blacks all the time, and foreign white tourists cannot get near the figure to take a decent picture, without their cameras getting stolen. Isn’t it strange how these stories never end up in our newspapers anymore?
POST UPDATE - 4 April 2010
Eugene Terre'Blanche was murdered by black savages on his farm just outside Ventersdorp around 17:00 on 3 April 2010.
Rest in peace Uncle Eugene - Rus in Vrede Oom Eugene!
