Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 27 May 2012. 07h00. I wrote a few ANC functionaries with ties to Oudtshoorn through politics and personal relationships with residents:
“Comment”, an OO commentator; André Gaum; Lynne Brown; Pierre Uys, Sipho Kroma, Cobus Grobler…
I am most completely appalled by the burning of City Press copies – old editions – at the Durban march.
The manner and intensity of the objections to the Brett Murray painting; the call to boycott a newspaper; the burning of copies of the paper…
Thugs acting like thugs.
And those I think are not thugs are silent. Tacit consent? Trepid reticence?
I fear the ANC as I had feared the Nats.
And what horrifies me most is the realisation that the ANC does not mind alienating people like me and those with whom I associate.
Thought I’d share my thoughts with you.
