Oh this is nice! It clearly illustrates the difference between a South African blog like ours, which is considered extreme right and the extreme left. As much as we like to insult the blacks and call them kaffirs when we get pissed off with them, you would be hard pressed to find anything on this blog that is as vile as the things mentioned in the following article that could lead to murder:

The PAC has come under fire after messages urging the killing of whites were posted on its Facebook site.
The party says it will not remove the offending posts.
The messages, which said an army of about 3 000 people was standing by, ready to kill white people within 24 hours if requested to do so, were still on the site after a Facebook user alerted the administrator to the messages.
Constitutional law expert Pierre de Vos yesterday said the messages were a "clear-cut" example of hate speech and that the Facebook posters, as well as the administrator of the site, could be taken to the equality court if they refused to remove the messages.
Independent media analyst and Facebook user Martin Slabbert said he had asked the posters and site administrator Anwar Adams, who is the PAC's provincial interim chairman, to remove the messages.
"I did a similar thing during the election campaign when a group was started named 'Let's assassinate (DA leader) Helen Zille', and the group was removed," Slabbert said.
Adams posted a message on the site yesterday thanking posters, but urged them not to stoop to the level of whites in their debate "for we are a better people".
"We are the soldiers that must prevent the previous (sic) advantaged individuals (whites - I hate calling them that for they are not white) from ever raping our dignity and land," he said in his post.
Adams told the Cape Argus today: "I don't know the people (who posted the comments) personally. But I'm not going to ban them.
"We believe that there's only one race, and that's the human race. We don't go according to colour. It's got nothing to do with your pigmentation. If you're born in Africa, then you're African."
But Adams said that even though the PAC disagreed with the comments along racial lines, he believed it was important to allow people to express their feelings.
"If we want to heal as a country, we need to understand what each other feel, and that requires that we hear each other's feelings" he said.
It was in this spirit that he refused to "ban" the comments.
The messages posted above a You Tube video clip showing Nelson Mandela with a group of people allegedly singing songs about "killing white people".
A Facebook poster called Ahmed El Saud said in his post:
"Kill the f***ing whites now!!! If you afraid of them, let's do it for you. In return, you can pay us after the job has been done... text us... we are not afraid for the whites like your own people... it's a disgrace ... he asked you and you don't want to... we will do it, Mandela!"In another posting he said: "Mandela asked so nice, start at home with food poison, gas leaks, cut the phone lines, kill the babies in the pool, be creative or if you have no nerve, call me and my team ... we have 3 000 on standby and can be ready with in 24 hours... think about it now or good luck."
