The gathering mob starts political voodooist chants to some dark terpsichorean muse

Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 24 April 2014. 06h15. The DA is steamrolling Peter Roberts – described by Theuns “Chuck Norris” Botha as “my best councillor in Oudtshoorn” a few weeks ago, and AFTER Roberts refused to sign the umpteenth s29 demand for a special council meeting – to an inevitable political auto da fe… only, apparently, for Roberts to phoenix out of the ashes to an expected independent candidature.
The conquistadors of the Marks Building will gather tomorrow to “decide” the fate of Botha’s favourite by imposing the come-what-may foregone conclusion: Peter Roberts must go because his continued presence in the Oudtshoorn caucus screams to the politically bloodied hands of his maculated colleagues who infamously failed to con ratepayers out of millions in a meretricious attempt to save poor Pierre Nel from financial ruin under the weight of that massive ego that drove the trusting man over the cliff of reason and into the rapids of self serving bias.
The DA’s “principles” are strewed across the political highway to May 7 like so much road kill in a truck lane.
In Eden alone – over a mere 60 kilometers – Roberts is to be burned at the political stake for indicating fraud and corruption and Wesie van der Westhuizen is to be excused for committing fraud and corruption… by the party hollering “ZERO TOLLERANCE” for fraud and corruption.
Ye gory gods and foul-mouthed faeries!
It is abundently clear: The DA considers you, and I, and all of us to be cardboard containers – dose, in plein Afrikaans.
What kind of message is this!?
The DA clearly does not know which policies it subscribes to and which not; which former ANC leaders it belatedly supports, or not; whom its presidential candidate should be or not; whether it will form coalitions or not; with whom it will form coalitions or not… And whether it opposes fraud and corruption, or supports it!
But vote for us, we can do it better!
Do what better!?
Ye goofy gods and fatuous faeries.
If you are a political schizophrene, vote DA… Welcome to Cloud Cuckoo Land.
O, wait, I’ve got it; I think… It’s only fraud and corruption if the ANC does it!
O, and Pierre… Godsk man, why not sue the varmint who played you like a false flute!?
