Oudtshoorn. 24 October 2012. 13h15. The neuro scientist, Sam Harris, speaks of concentric circles of diminishing reasonableness… with moderate supporters on the outer circle, and extremists at the centre.
And, argues Harris, the moderate dupes give cover to the extortionate rogues at the centre.
In other words: Aunty Meisie, of Dysselsdorp, having seen Gordon April grow up before her very eyes, and having suffered insult and harm under Apartheid, votes for April… and must of neccessity share in the blame of April’s mismanagement, such as there is, for protecting him by her vote.
Aunty Meisie, salt of the earth and all, would not take a cent wrongfully, aiding and abetting the doingses of April!?
By her vote, yes.
And this is the story of the ANC.
No organization where it is possible for someone like Jacob Zuma to rise to the top can be taken seriously. Period.
Such affront is only possible because of the moderates on the fringes protecting the crazies in the middle.
Not Zuma; not Gwede Mantashe; not Jessie Duarte; not Marius Fransman; not Putco Mapitiza, not any of the local lot are lifting a finger to remove April… let alone anybody moving seriously against Zuma protected by o so many Aunty Meisies.
If the ANC is to be diminished, it has to be from the outside circles in.
I, for one, have had it with the ANC. In deference to renowned University of Texas, Austin, cosmologist Steven Weinberg, on a particular ideology, the ANC to me may be like “a crazy old aunt” who tells lies and stirs up mischief. She was beautiful once. She’s been with us a long time. When she’s gone we may miss her.
Yet I am utterly fed up with the respect the Aunty Meisies have been brainwashed into bestowing upon the ANC.
Look at our land.
Look only at education. If all else were well, the depraved state of education in South Africa would still indicate that the future is bleak. The ANC fails right there. At the doorstep to the future. All else is a used band aid on a malignant wound.
Look at the ANC leaders – from Zuma in the Union Buildings; down to April at Verwoerd Sq.
The pantheons help us!
Not only did the ANC fail to fix South Africa’s terrible legacy, the ANC worsened the patient.
The ANC failed. The ANC is failing. The ANC continues to fail. And the ANC does not even have the presence of spirit to own up… it’s Apartheid’s fault, don’t you know.
Or the fault of colonialsm!
The ANC. A bunch of useless idiots.
And to those wailing cadres bemoaning the presence of Zuma and April: Act, or make way for someone who will.
I am sick and tired of ANC excuses for incompetence.
And I am nauseated by “well-meaning” Aunties Meisie abbetting the varments.
