Malema Needs To Stop Instigating Political and Racial Violence – Chelsea Lotz

Chelsea LotzOver the past few days Julius Malema and the EFF have been clearly instigating political violence as well as threatening the white minority. I would like to know why the leaders of the opposition are not holding Malema accountable for his deeply racist dialogue and dangerous calls of violence to his supporters, which endangers our Constitution. Malema has taken it upon himself to blame the ANC for Xenophobia (which is inaccurate), by saying “People of KwaZulu-Natal voted for ANC in KZN; then, if things go wrong, they must take their anger out on ANC and not on foreign nationals”. Such calls to violence should not be tolerated, and I fear that the EFF have the capacity to start a civil war if we do not stand against such destructive dialogue from “so called” EFF leaders.

On the 28th April, Mcebo Dlamini made a comment at Wits University about his admiration of Adolf Hitler, stating “He started killing people when he was already in power”. Dlamini also stated, “In every white person there is an element of Hitler” sending a contradictory and false message to EFF followers which could constitute as hate speech. The EFF endorsed his comment on the news the following night, saying they stand in support of what Dlamini said. During a time in which our country is recovering from Xenophobic violence, we should not accept any dialogue that marginalises any particular racial or religious group, as it goes against the spirit of reconciliation that Mandela fought so hard for. It is not justifiable in any way or measure to spur violence towards any group of minority, be it Xhosa, Jew, Coloured, White or Foreign.

Malema has been pulling wool over the eyes of the white minority, making them believe that he is in their favor, charming the masses with sweet songs of “Kiss the Boer”. Such lullabies are a direct contradiction to his dialogue, and I urge the minority groups to not be deceived. Recent comments from Malema exposes his deeply racist disposition, and proves that white people and other minority groups should not be supporting him.

Since 1994, the ANC has protected the white constituency as much as the black and coloured constituency. The ANC remains solidly on the foundation that all people are equal. Despite the crimes perpetrated by European ancestors during the time of apartheid, the ANC did not take revenge on the white constituency; instead Mandela promised a resolution of peace and equality, a legacy that Zuma has continued.

Malema exposed himself when he made the comment to white land owners, at the ‘EFF Freedom Day Rally’, saying “South Africa is in the hands of white males, their days are numbered” and then invited white land owners to “join the EFF” if they want “equal land ownership”. Is that a threat? Malema is obviously threatening white people with dialogue that says ‘join us or your days are numbered’. In all respect should anyone, irrespective of race, join a political party through being victim to threats and bullying?

The mere fact that EFF supporters turn up to rallies with plac cards reading “They killed us, now we must kill them” displays the severely racist and violent undertones of the EFF. I urge all minority groups to seriously re-consider any support they may have of the EFF. The ANC always has and always will protect the rainbow nation of South Africa. Do not hand over our freedom to those with mischievious and dangerous intentions, such as the EFF, who would gladly stage a sudden coup d’état.

    Funny how you talk of the rainbow nation when there is no black in that rainbow. You know the EFF has the capability to start anything and you talk of Zuma who is currently protecting white supremacy in a black country, the very same guy who you were saying misused your money ( so he’s good if you whites want him to be good). Best thing to do now would be to mobilize your own people and let Malema and Dlamini mobilize their’s. That’s the only thing you can do and know that as much as you choose your heroes, we also choose ours. Azania for Azanians!

  2. You’re an idiot Philani. For starters, this is South Africa, you Black Nationalists and kitchen Pan-Africanists should get that in your thick un-evolved skulls. Secondly, “rainbow nation” is a metaphor for diversity; this there existence of the colour Black in the rainbow is not a prerequisite for the determination of the validity of that metaphor. So, get a life, read a book, educate yourself and liberate your mind from the propaganda that fills it. The EFF is capable of starting nothing but chaos, and I must say, as much as its members are prepared to die wreaking havoc in this society, we are prepared to die defending this democracy; and defending each and every human being, citizen, and every African of whatever shade in this country. The attempts to sow divisions, to continue the narrative of an us and them, the assumption of a mentality of victim hood to justify counter racial discrimination and hatred, and the threat that you people pose to our democracy will not go without resistance. If you want a revolution, we will respond with a resistance, because we are sick and tired of hate by our people that is based on vengeance and their own history of violence. You guys are a threat not only to the White minority, but also to every Black who may dissent. You are a threat to Liberal thought, and thus a threat to democracy as a whole. This country will not go to the dogs over hate, jealousy and petty politics of “reactionism” and “knee-jerkism” that you people are leaning on. You will not break this society into pieces over opportunistic propaganda purported to be superior knowledge that every other man identified as “Black” must follow. Maybe some see ‘saviours’ in you people, but we see dangerous thugs, thugs we will fight tooth and nail defending this democracy. I am tired of being told to hate, as if hatred serves anyone well. I am sick and bloody tired of the Mcebos and Julius’s of this society.
