Malema prosecution the right thing to do

canada goose outlet niagara falls AfriForum is and will canada goose remain convinced that the organisation’s decision to privately prosecute Julius cheap canada goose uk Malema if the corruption charges against him are not reinstated is the right thing to do and therefore continues with it at full steam. canada goose outlet niagara falls

canada goose jacket outlet The decision to ensure that Malema is prosecuted is a well considered decision that was taken well knowing that Max du Preez and a few of his co commentators who have one or another fixation on AfriForum, as well as the anti white brigade on social media would, as usual, react to it hysterically. For this reason, unfounded criticism such as in Du Preez’s article “The honourable thing for AfriForum to do” will not discourage AfriForum; on the contrary, AfriForum views this as an canada goose clearance sale indication that the organisation is on the right path. canada goose jacket outlet

canada goose outlet us Du Preez’s assumption, namely that reaction to AfriForum’s plans to prosecute Malema was “overwhelmingly negative”, is based on “reaction in the mainstream and on social media”. canada goose outlet us

canada goose outlet locations in toronto Regarding the negative comments canada goose store about AfriForum by a few commentators in the “mainstream media”, I think the following expression is apt: “Published opinion should not be confused with public opinion.” Du Preez himself is a canadian goose jacket good example. canada goose outlet locations in toronto

canada goose outlet paypal Just because some media are dishing up his and a few other anti AfriForum commentators’ opinions almost unceasingly Canada Goose Parka to listeners and readers week after week, does not mean that the viewpoints of Du Canada Goose Online Preez and his allies are now representative of the “public opinion”. The opposite is rather true. canada goose outlet paypal

canada goose outlet houston The same goes for Du Preez’s thoughtless assumption that goose outlet social media gives a good indication of the “negative” attitude towards AfriForum. If social media and especially the so called “black Twitter” are uk canada goose outlet used as measurement, one could think that most buy canada goose jacket cheap people in South Africa are anti white racists, vote EFF and view land expropriation and white racism as the country’s most significant focus points. This while we all know that the canada goose clearance EFF’s support is limited to about 8% of the population. canada goose outlet houston

canada goose outlet in new york Research by the Institute of Race Relations also shows that fewer than Canada Goose online 4% of people in the country view racism and land reform as the most significant focus points, and that the vast majority of white as well as black people maintain healthy human relations with each other. canada goose outlet in new york

canada goose outlet toronto location Julius Malema and his followers use social media to try and spread fear among those who differ from him. Max du Preez and others who have become so nervous about Malema and Co’s threats that they choose to rather lay low and keep quiet, canada goose uk outlet play right into Malema’s hand by strengthening the impression he already has that he is untouchable. canada goose outlet toronto location

canada goose outlet in chicago Regarding Julius Malema, AfriForum could have chosen to react in one of three ways: We could, for the sake of a false and unsustainable peace, also have decided to do nothing Canada Goose sale and lay low; Canada Goose Outlet or we could, as canada goose factory sale counter reaction to Malema, have turned to the same types of hate speech and threatening statements; or we Canada Goose Coats On Sale could have opposed Malema’s destructive actions in a calm and reasonable, yet firm and canada goose black friday sale peaceful manner. canada goose outlet in chicago

canada goose outlet hong kong But, different from Du Preez, AfriForum believes that laying low and not doing anything is no option. When someone like Malema acts as buy canada goose jacket if he is above the law and everyone is too scared to act against him, he will also see this as a sign of weakness and will act uk canada goose more and more destructively. canada goose outlet hong kong

canada goose outlet uk sale The second option, namely to turn to similar destructive actions as counter reaction to those of Malema, is also not an option for AfriForum. AfriForum strives towards promoting mutual recognition and respect between communities. To keep silent about Malema would not promote respect between canada goose uk black friday communities, as this would give Malema the green light to continue his polarising actions. Should the NPA decline to do so, Adv Gerrie Nel will start a process to prosecute Malema privately on behalf of AfriForum. canada goose outlet uk sale

canada goose premium outlet AfriForum’s strategy has already canada goose coats on sale been proven successful. The NPA, who refused to prosecute Duduzane Zuma for culpable homicide, has now turned around and decided to prosecute Zuma Jr after AfriForum had announced that the organisation would prosecute him privately on behalf of the Dube family if the NPA would not do its work. If AfriForum had not acted against Zuma Jr from fear of being imputed, there would not have been any justice for the Dube family. canada goose premium outlet

canada goose coats uk If AfriForum as Du Preez suggests decided not to prosecute Malema from fear of being imputed, there wouldn’t be justice for tax https://www.canadagooseoutlet4sale.com payers and recipients of state grants, because it is, in fact, these people who were disadvantaged by Malema’s plundering of the fiscus as a result of the tender cheap Canada Goose corruption that he committed. canada goose coats uk

canada goose outlet in canada The allegations canada goose coats that actions against Malema would strengthen his position are also a misconception. These same allegations were made in 2011 when AfriForum successfully charged Malema with hate speech. He then sat comfortably in the saddle as the ruling party’s canada goose uk shop youth leader. Canada Goose Jackets Although he initially attempted to make a short term profit from the case, it eventually caused him to be kicked out of the ANC and reduced to the leader of an 8% party. canada goose outlet in canada

canada goose outlet orlando Malema’s 8% means that he can only have a big impact on policy when the ruling party or the official opposition allows him to throw his weight around. canada goose outlet orlando

canada goose outlet germany Regarding the corruption case against Malema, he will once again try to gain a short term profit from it, but in the medium to long term a conviction in an independent court of law would clip his wings and send a clear message that no one is above the law. canada goose outlet germany
