What you’re watching is a session of our Parliament. Correction! Was our Parliament. It is no longer any such thing.
That hallowed institution ceased to exist when Jacob Zuma and his cronies usurped it. What it is now, is merely a deception to keep up appearances for the credulous masses that conspire to keep this rabble in power.
It never fails to at the same time, amuse and infuriate me when these leeches call each other honourable. I’d be pleasantly surprised if more than a handful of them actually looked up the word in a dictionary.
Notice how the sheep rise to applaud the Pres… er jackal when he takes up position to answer frustrate questions from the Opposition. How very diffident? And what about the Speaker? What a model of prejudice?
This my friends is a very devious form of apartheid. It is called ANC democracy.
While our cricketers were being humbled in the World Cup down under by New Zealand, our President was toying with the idea of becoming a dictator.
If you’re wondering how these two events are connected – they’re not. It’s just that both our President and our cricketers were a major disappointment yesterday, with the former being a permanent one.
While most will have people laughed off Jacob Zuma’s idiotic contemplation, some of us were a tad bit jittery, this being Africa, a continental clusterfuck of downright autocratic and pseudo-democratic governments. Talk here in South Africa of dictatorship by the ruling circus clown should never be taken too lightly.
Zuma may be a giggling, incompetent, lying, corrupt leader who somehow always comes off as likeable to the voting fodder, he harbours a dark side that very few people get to see. I caught a glimpse of it once on television when he was engulfed by a horde of reporters and cameramen, and I recognized it instantly. He is most certainly capable of transforming into a full-blown dictator.
But why would Zuma want to become a dictator, even if for one year as he facetiously “requested” in the South African Local Government Association summit in Midrand? He has everything going for him.
(a) He has this uncanny knack of fooling everyone into thinking they have a fully functioning democracy.
(b) The majority of the voting public being somewhat credulous, are tripping over each other to vote for him.
(c) He has twisted practically every arm of the law and judiciary to serve his every whim and folly.
(d) He can spout utter rubbish and the majority of the people lap it up unquestioningly.
So why? Is it possible that he senses that the tide is turning and that things will no longer be going his way. Are more and more of his former supporters and lap-dogs slowly but surely recognizing what a huge liability he is?
The President is well-known for gobbling up taxpayers money for his personal benefit, but a Sunday newspaper called him a chicken yesterday and for good reason too.
Jacob Zuma was labeled South Africa’s Number One Coward for refusing to answer questions in Parliament simply because it’s getting much tougher to defend the indefensible. Scandal seems to follow him around like a mosquito on steroids.
To make matters worse, his spokes-idiot Zizi Kodwa defended him by saying “The president can’t go to parliament when that parliament is a circus.” People have been calling the ANC-run parliament a circus for years, and it’s pretty darn hilarious that they agree.
If it was at all possible to take things from worse to rock bottom, you can count on Zuma to comply. At a Press luncheon over the weekend, Zuma asked if it was unfair for him to squander spend nearly a quarter of a billion rands on sprucing up personal residence at taxpayers expense when an airport was constructed nearby former apartheid era President P.W. Botha’s home for his apparent exclusive use.
Not only was the comparison disingenuous, the dufus failed to realise that defending his wastage by comparing it to another cretin’s wastage, was the worst possible thing to do. This self-serving clod, never misses an opportunity to remind the sheeple how terrible the apartheid era sins were, while never missing a chance to repeat them himself.
While credulous voters continue to abide this disgraceful specimen, it will be gobble, gobble, until the country is properly ruined.
