ANC Govt Cracks Down On Bloggers

Related:


Boerevryheid VierkleurFTO also reported on the ANC crackdown during the last few days on people from a few websites and blogs that are critical of the ANC. Three of which have been released with no charges made against them.

It seems that in most cases the police confiscated computer equipment. It is clear that the South African government is cracking down on bloggers that are critical of the way they run the country and they want to censor the information these bloggers and websites give out.

The Right Perspective also reported on the ZASucks case where the blogger Uhuru Guru was arrested, spent the night in jail and was released with no charges. No word if he got his computer equipment back that was confiscated.

A lot of people claim that this is because South Africa wants the bad publicity to stop before the 2010 soccer world cup, but instead of dealing with the crime directly, they now try to intimidate these bloggers and website contributors.

Another blogger of Boer Freedom has been arrested, also this time no charges after spending some time in jail. Some claim this is because they blog about the "boer genocide" that is taking place in South Africa.

Whatever the reason, the government is kicking down doors and arresting people that are critical of them.

Fuck the ANC. How are they going to arrest or prevent the thousands of bloggers overseas? If anything, this is only adding fuel to the fire.

Is this now the SA version of freedom of speech as enshrined in our useless "constitution". You are free to make comments and say your say as long as you praise the anc. Freedom my arse!It likens communism in the old ussr where you buy a car and can choose the colour.....any shade of black! You can clearly see where the anc comes from!!

No wonder all the skilled labour is leaving the country, I can't stop worrying about my family and friends that are left there though. I can honestly see SA becoming the new Zim already.

The world is closely observing and taking note of the illegal actions of the evil ANC. We are spreading the word far and wide from the USA and soon, we will deal with the sorry ANC bastards. Being a top flight mercenary organization with extensive experience and connections, our group is taking action to remedy the situation. To HELL with the ANC!
