25 cows to die for Zuma

These people need to leave the stone age. This barbarous act above all else symbolises the differences between the cultures. It's primitive and savage. Interestingly, they embrace this part of their 'roots' but not enough to forego the other white man trinkets like their BMWs and cellphones.

The SPCA will assist the organisers of President Jacob Zuma's party to slaughter 25 cows, the organisation said on Friday.

The Nxamalala clan in Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal will slaughter 25 cows on Friday afternoon to celebrate Zuma's ascendancy to the highest office. Zuma grew up in Nkandla and his homestead is in the area.

Del Jones of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said her organisation had sent two people to Nkandla to assist. "We spoke to the organisers and they allowed us to assist. Some cows will be slaughtered today (Friday) and some will be slaughtered on Saturday morning," she said.

Jones said SPCA staff would ensure that the animals did not suffer during the slaughtering and that there were no risks to people. The party, which has been dubbed "the mother of parties" by the organisers, would take place at Ntolwane Primary School near Zuma's homestead in Nkandla.

Zuma's party was initially supposed to take place immediately after Zuma's inauguration on May 9 but had to be delayed because of the president's tight schedule.

The leader of the Nxamalala clan and Zuma's relative, inkosi Bheki Zuma said prominent government leaders and senior African National Congress leaders were also expected to attend the party. - Sapa

Where is the pro-life dickhead now?

Doberman said...

I think the term "pro-life" is a misnomer. I'm particularly fond of living so would consider myself pro-life. I am pro-choice and the opposing lot are anti-abortion - these are the correct labels that should apply. Hey VI, arguing with these people is like trying to convince them that god isn't real. Oops, did I open another can of worms...?

Vanilla Ice said...

Ha ha. It may be a misnomer, but they very carefully remove religion from the equation, therefore life becomes focal. If life is the focus then it should encompass all life, which they also dance around.

FishEagle said...

Dobes, God is not real, He is spiritual.....if that is opening a can of worms.

I once met a large angry lady who described herself as "pro-abortion" !!

now there's a misnomer...

I'm trying hard to see the sense in this. Not the slaughtering of the cattle, but the attitude that says it's a stone age thing. People of the modern age slaughter cattle every day. And in fact the modern age does it in ways far more cruel--the cattle live in a chemicalized state, in unnatural enclosures ... surely you can't be serious.

Doberman said...

@ Robin, are YOU serious? Cattle in abattoirs die in a "chemicalized state"? Bullshit! They take a shot to the forehead which kills them instantly. That's the most humane method which even animal rights groups agree is the most civilised way to kill them.

On the other hand, being tied up, lots of noisy frightening sounds from dozens, hundreds of people around the animal and then slitting its throat, letting it bleed to death, sometimes carving it up while conscious is to YOU more acceptable?!!! Get fucking real!

It's barbaric, and has no place in a world where alternatives exist. If faced with the same choice, I'd like YOU to pick between a bullet between the eyes or getting your throat cut. You have a serious problem if you can't see the difference.

Robin said...

@ Doberman: The cattle spend their lives in unnatural conditions, and live with chemicals that have been force into them. The stun technique is some way towards compassion, but it seems to be the only thing. Humans, whether those in charge of the animals, or the people who'll finally eat them, care little for the animal itself. Indeed, humans care little for the plight of OTHER humans. And carving up an animal while it's still conscious? I have to ask now if THAT'S serious. Yet I *DO* know of certain Polynesian tribes that throw live animals into a pot to be cooked. Absolutely horrific, yes, but I've never known Black Africans to follow such customs.

Doberman said...

@ Robin, I have seen animals slaughtered in this fashion and it is horrific and inhumane. The death is slow and painful. The animal screams in agony. We don't need to be killing animals for consumption in this manner and using tradition as an excuse is not acceptable.

Western "traditions" have been forced through public pressure to evolve so the animal is spared as much suffering as possible. Not with so-called lesser cultures. There is simply no excuse in this day and age to be cutting the throats of animals.

As for your contention that all cattle live in unnatural conditions and are force-fed "chemicals", you know that is just not true everywhere.

Anyway, I don't want to make this about meat eating etc, I happen to enjoy steak as much as the next person but I do appreciate that in so doing I hope the animal is slaughtered as humanely as possible. It is time for black Africans and other retarded cultures to come into the 21st century and stop using the crutch of "traditions" as an excuse to kill animals inhumanely.

Vanilla Ice said...

@Robin. Just to help you along the way. Africans are renowned for slaughtering animals whilst they are conscious. You just need to view this video to get the message.

Personally, I abhor the slaughter of animals. That is why I buy my meat from Woolworths.

Robin said...

@Doberman: Forcing chickens to live in battery systems, and so much else in the raising and killing of animals in our civilisation is far more horrific than than a minute or two of pain, and then "freedom". I worked on a chicken raising farm--it's awful.
__But we'll put that aside for a while. The thing that disturbs me a great deal is your perception of Black Africans as "retarded". The dispossessed & powerless always appear to the rich as retarded or inferior in some other way. White people are rich from having stolen from these non-white "retarded" nations.
___More later, if necessary. --R

Robin you don’t live like these “retarded nations” so stop talking about things you know absolutely nothing about.

Joe King said...

@Robin, take it from a (financialy) poor white man, they are like children. Any adult that acts like a child continuosly and unabated, can be considered retarded. I live amongst the retards, oopss mentally challenged. Do you? There are amongst them an truly enlightened few, but they are only a few. But alas, the majority are retards.

Robin said...

@FishEagle: You'd be surprised just how much I *do* know, but thanks for your speaking your mind. While you know nothing about me, you (& others here) would expect someone living in the comfort of Australia not to be fully aware & awake to the reality of living a life trapped in a precarious 3rd World nation. Most Australians would be exactly as you say. But I am NOT "most Australians". I'm too alert to the fact of the freedoms and liberties that are being surreptitiously stolen from Australians and others in the "First World". I assure you, I don't write these things while sipping on a chocolate drink with marshmallows floating on the top. I hope you'll read my reply to "Joe King".

@Everybody: Please search for and watch a documentary called "Apartheid Did Not Die" by highly acclaimed journalist John Pilger. Many of you won't believe him, but watch his other documentaries; you may be surprised. I don't think he goes far enough. For example, only an exceptionally intelligent and insightful White South African who's lived in SA all his/her life could do real justice in presenting a true picture of South Africa today.

Robin said...

@Joe King: If what you say is true, then we would have to accept the truth and work by it. And yes, most people are too easy-going to see further than what their eyes scan in their day-to-day living. And I'm sure that many of your Black Folk do indeed appear as retarded, child-like etc. But if you ponder it: children THEMSELVES behave the way they do from a feeling of helplessness (i.e. powerlessness). And so it is POWERLESSNESS that dictates certain behaviours that manifest themselves as child-like. In South Africa, the native Africans have been without a vote, without a voice and without power for more than a century. So even if many had true power today (which they don't), entrenched behaviour would probably continue for a generation or more. The Romany Gypsies in Europe were even described in early 20th Century versions of the Encyclopaedia Britannica as having a mental age of a 10 year old. But the true reason for a child-like behaviour was that they were a weak and bullied part of society; (half a million reportedly murdered by the German Government of the 1930s & 40s). Yet in nations (like North America, Australia and your own South Africa where they were regarded as "White") they lived as "normal" human adults. *By the way, ex-President Bill Clinton's grandfather was Roma Gypsy, and his wife has spoken out against ongoing cruel treatment of them in former Communist countries. Other Romany Gypsies include actor Michael Caine and 70s pop-star David Essex, who I remember as suffering from a child-like shyness even as an adult. The late Elvis Presley could have been Roma Gypsy too, and plans are underway to find out for sure.

@Robin. Oh come on, you cannot seriously be trotting out the old theory that oppression must be to blame, simply because there is a correlation. There are exceptions you know, Haiti and Singapore. As for retarded, if we want to sweat the evidence, sub-Saharan Africans have a mean IQ of 67. That means that 50% are below 67, which in the first world would be defined as retarded.

FishEagle said...

@ Robin, you have continuously built the straw man argument that the people on this site like to see animals slaughtered.

Your snug claim to intelligence throughout your comments is VERY common amongst people that I’ve encountered from first world countries. You have not provided any new information in your viewpoint, which is held by the majority of whites in my world. The people that visit this site generally look for a different opinion. If you don’t want to waste your time any further why don’t you read about some of the issues brought up in this blog?

You used the analogy that blacks act like children, which is evident in their helplessness. This blog makes the point that you need to stop treating them like children and start holding them accountable for their actions like adults. You and I are equally racist but you are doing nothing about it.

“For example, only an exceptionally intelligent and insightful White South African who's lived in SA all his/her life could do real justice in presenting a true picture of South Africa today. “

I’ve lived in South Africa all my life and continue to do so. But you wouldn’t be interested in my opinion. I’m intelligent enough to realize that. Lol
