This is what was said:
"We believe that this song, LIKE MANY OTHERS that were sung during the struggle days, is part of our history and OUR HERITAGE. It will be very unfortunate, if through our courts, that our history and our heritage were to be outlawed."
The Sunday Telegraph added:
"Demands that the President, Jacob Zuma, rein in his subordinate and force him to apologise went unheeded. Instead MR ZUMA CLAIMED THE CHANT 'KILL THE BOER' TO BE A HARMLESS 'STRUGGLE SONG'…So, a courageous High Court decides that Malema's use of the inciteful, ANC slogan, 'Kill the Boer' is contributing to the deaths of two or three white farmers every week. The ANC responds by claiming that such criticism of a demonstrably rabble-rousing and dangerous black anthem is 'meant to incite, instigate and mobilise some people to harm and even execute' Julius Malema, the politician who is, presently, utilising the genocidal phrase most often.
Certainly, he seems confident of the unqualified support of the President, WHO HAS TIPPED HIM AS A FUTURE LEADER OF THE COUNTRY...
Often depicted by newspaper cartoonists wearing nappies, Mr MALEMA IS A QUINTESSENTIAL EXAMPLE OF THE NEW ANC ELITE. Described as a 'tenderpreneur' by the local media, his lifestyle – HE HAS THREE HOMES AND A FLEET OF LUXURY VEHICLES - comes under regular scrutiny as do HIS ALLEGED FINANCIAL LINKS TO COMPANIES WHICH HAVE BEEN AWARDED LUCRATIVE GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS…
The controversial chant has now become a focus for a wide range of fears and resentments felt by the white population. In particular, relations between the black government and the minority Afrikaners, who number just three million out of a population of 50 million, are at their worst since the end of apartheid.
IT IS ALSO AN UNWANTED REMINDER OF THE PAST AS THE COUNTRY TRIES TO PORTRAY A SUCCESSFUL, MODERN IMAGE IN THE RUN-UP TO THIS YEAR'S WORLD CUP, held in Africa for the first time.
In much the same way, Mr Zuma's recent state visit to London attracted headlines about which of HIS FOUR WIVES the polygamous President would bring on the trip...
The Freedom Front Plus, a party protecting the rights of Afrikaners, said; 'Mr Malema was nine-years-old when Mandela was freed. HE WAS NEVER REALLY PART OF THE 'STRUGGLE’... If he sang the song today, it has to be judged in the context of 2010 and the fact that FARMERS ARE BEING KILLED WEEKLY.'
A few days later, the government admitted a degree of nervousness, claiming that the growing hostility towards the youth leader was becoming dangerous.
'As the ANC, WE DRAW THE CONCLUSION THAT IT IS MEANT TO INCITE, INSTIGATE AND MOBILISE SOME PEOPLE TO HARM AND EVEN LEAD TO THE EXECUTION OF THE ANC YL PRESIDENT,' an ANC statement said."
Well that's PC psychobabble for you. Mandela, his peers and his heirs were always unashamedly Commie. The Sunday Telegraph also told us this:
"IN SOUTH AFRICA, IT IS SAFER TO BE A MINER THAN A FARMER. AT LEAST TWO WHITE FARMERS OR FAMILY MEMBERS ARE MURDERED EVERY WEEK; LAST YEAR ALONE, 120 WERE KILLED. With a radical new policy on land expropriation being mooted by the ruling African National Congress (ANC), talk in rural areas frequently turns to South Africa becoming the next Zimbabwe.Check out the unspoken reality of life for many (outside of the fashionable spin and tail-wagging) in the new, happy-clappy South Africa, here: Nelson Mandela and the Rainbow Nation.
As one farmer said: 'Zimbabwe? About a dozen white farmers were killed in Zimbabwe in the last decade in an unlawful government land grab. WE LOST 10 TIMES THAT MANY JUST IN 2009 – AND WE ARE IN A COUNTRY WHERE FARMERS ARE ALLEGEDLY AT PEACE WITH THE GOVERNMENT. WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT OUR FUTURE'?"
