COSATU Official Guilty of Hate Speech


Johannesburg - The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has ruled that statements by a Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) official were hate speech, the South African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD) said on Friday.

The comments were made by Cosatu international officer Bongani Masuku at the University of Witwatersrand in March 2009.

"We applaud the SAHRC for sending out a clear message that the right to freedom of expression does not include a license to indulge in hate speech and incitement," said SAJBD national chairperson Zev Krengel.

In the ruling and a letter to Masuku, copies of which were provided to Sapa by the SAJBD, the SAHRC described his speech as "extreme" and asked Masuku to apologise to the SABJD or be referred to the Equality Court.

It seems that only the Khazars are above the law and what ever. Blacks and khazars are the only two groups that are not racist, no matter whatever they do.

It's quite amazing to see the SAHRC doing anything at all for a change and the decision is to be welcomed.

The Jews have their act together and don't let themselves be trampled on. We should take a leaf out of their book.

Dach, you are quite right. If only we, as whites, had the same moral higher ground. Unfortunately we have that huge albatros hanging around our necks: APARTHEID - We'll never be forgiven for that.

Whites are being marginalised and made to shut up to such an extent that they will never be able to make up for apartheid.

That's the ploy the ANC are using to make the masses believe they can never share a country peacefully with whites and that's how they justify an open season on whites.

It's a strategy designed to hide their own incompetencies.

The right wing are too stupid to see this strategy for what it is, preferring to play out the oppressed Afrikaner whine against anyone who remotely disagrees with them, thereby constantly feeding the mechanism that causes their own destruction.
