The Malema-Dilemma Façade

There’s no doubt in my mind that Malema’s little dilemma is being utilized to the max to mend the ANC’s flawed reputation. The media’s intense exposure of Malema’s suspension, and their excessive use of expressions, which imply that the man is now “guilty”, “finished” and “klaar”, has created the false perception in the minds of the sheeple, that the ANC has beaten their little freedumb fighter into the ground with a sledge hammer.

Although it may appear to some that the ANC are finally upholding democratic values, in reality the whole exercise is nothing but a precautionary measure to protect their backsides. In other words, it’s all a planned façade by the ANC, designed to generate the perception that they are not blameworthy of any crimes against humanity.

Okay, sure enough - Malema has already been found guilty of hate speech on 12 September 2011, after Afriforum brought a case of hate speech against him… However the crutch of the matter is that the South African legal system has, to date, refused to prosecute Malema for incitement to genocide, due partly to the inadequacies of the SA Police Farce to investigate such a crime, and partly due to the confusion created by the international liberal mob as how to define it.

Even the precise definition of "cultural genocide" remains unclear after the drafters of the 1948 Genocide Convention dropped it under strong opposition from western countries, especially the United Kingdom, who feared that too broad a definition of genocide could implicate its activity in its colonies.

Nevertheless, the International Criminal Court (ICC) can exercise its jurisdiction if national courts are unwilling or unable to investigate or prosecute genocide.  It was exactly this "court of last resort" that was approached (on more than one occasion) to investigate charges of genocide against Malema, who at the time was considered a fully-fledged supporter of the ruling party and also president of the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL).  The deputy-chairman of TAU SA, Mr. Henk van de Graaf, has apparently, according to this source, also recently lodged a formal genocide-complaint against the ANC-government at the ICC in The Hague.

Although the latest developments in the Malema saga has given Genocide Watch sufficient reason to return South Africa to stage 5 (polarization) on its ‘Countries at Risk Chart’, my argument is - what the hell is a democratic country like South Africa doing on that list in the first place!?!

For the record… The opening paragraph of the latest Genocide Watch report, dated 2 February 2012, states as follows:
After upgrading South Africa to stage 6 “preparation” in September 2011 due to the increasing power of Julius Malema, then the Marxist racist President of the African National Congress Youth League, two quite significant developments have occurred.  The first was a South African court’s ruling that Malema’s singing of the “Shoot the Boer” song constitutes “hate speech” in violation of South African law.  The court issued an injunction prohibiting Malema from singing the song.  The second development is the suspension of Julius Malema from the African National Congress (ANC) and his removal as President of the ANC Youth League. - Read the rest here.

Although I strongly doubt that Malema’s name will ever join the list of people indicted in the International Criminal Court, I still have a very bad feeling about the long-term outcome of the Malema dilemma. In fact, my sentiments were once expressed in a futuristic article, where I promoted this disgusting African to the military rank of  General, who was leading the ANC rebel forces in a fierce conflict between the West Arzanian Resistance Movement (WARM) and radical elements of a crushed ANC regime…
(Relax, it’s only a futuristic story. I’m not Siener van Rensburg!)

On a more realistic note… The future behaviour of madmen may be difficult to predict, but when these madmen have power, then all sorts of bizarre ‘accomplishments’ are possible. HIS-story books contain numerous examples. Let’s not forget that Forbes Magazine did after-all name this lunatic as one of the "10 Youngest Power Men In Africa", in September 2011 - (source).

Hallo TIA

The Malema-saga in my opinion actually exposed and highlighted a lot about SA.

Any sane person can see that Mr M's favourite song is hate speech. And this is where all reveals itself...AFRIFORUM gets attacked for prosecuting Mr M (highlighting the bias of many people), the ANC defends the song(highlighting their anti-whiteness). Crowds chant the song in reaction/protest to the song's banning (providing a glimpse into SA's polarized state). Malemas political radicalism showed the danger of the more under-the-surface polarization in SA alongside the black youth poverty perpetuated by the cr@p education system, overregulation of the labour market and less than full-potential economic growth.

Does anyone realize how many goals (of showing everyone the less rainbow-side of SA) Afriforum achieved? They were actually freakn brilliant!

Its a shame the Malema-saga happened, but the silver lining is it provided a good wake-up call to many people, especially overseas.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
