BBC reporter ejected from ANC news conference

From the Daily Telegraph

Jonah Fisher, who is based at the BBC's Johannesburg bureau, was called a "bloody agent" before being ejected by the firebrand Mr Malema.

Mr Malema, 29, called the media briefing to explain his findings on last week's visit to Zimbabwe where he was embraced by president Robert Mugabe and his ZanuPF party. While there he was widely criticised back in South Africa for continuing to sing an anti-apartheid song with the lyrics 'kill the Boer, kill the farmer' even after the killing of white supremacist Eugene Terreblanche at his home in Ventersdorp.

Opposition politicians claim the song stirred up racial hatred, a climate in which the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) leader was bludgeoned to death.

At the news conference in the ANC's Luthuli House in Johannesburg, Mr Malema had been criticizing Zimbabwe's opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Change, for cricitising him for visiting Zimbabwe from their offices in the upmarket suburb of Sandton.

Mr Fisher can be heard saying "you live in Sandton" causing Mr Malema to stutter before rounding on the broadcast journalist.

He first tells the reporter he was in a "revolutionary building" and that he knew nothing about the revolution - referring to the anti-apartheid struggle.

Mr Fisher then replied: "They (the MDC)are not welcome in Sandton, but you are", after which Mr Malema says "here you behave or else you jump". Mr Fisher replied that the proceedings were a "joke" after which Malema calls security to have him removed.

When Mr Fisher began to pack up his belongings, Mr Malema continued: "You don't come here with that tendency, don't come here with that white tendency. Not here, you can do it somewhere else, not here. If you've got a tendency of undermining blacks even where you work, you are in the wrong place. Here, you're in the wrong place."

After he left, Mr Malema is reported to have told the remaining media: "This is not a beer hall. This is not a drunk beer hall this. You can ask all, including political parties who try to undermine the house, what happened. When you are here, you are in a different terrain. You are in our space."

Mr Malema is a controversial figure in South Africa where some see him as an heir apparent to president Jacob Zuma. However he has become a growing embarrassment to some senior party figures.His singing of the 'kill the Boer' song which has caused the biggest controversy prompting the ANC's secretary general to effectively tell Mr Malema to shut up - something he said he will not do.

You can feel the white hatred peeling from him. He is repeating the same language old mad Bob used when he hounded the foreign journalists out of Zim - he also called them agents.

Over 30 000 at ET's funeral and the beeb tell us "ove 1000"!

I had a feeling this would not be reported on the Bullshit Baffles Corp.

Unfortunately, the Brits suffer from that dreaded disease Liberalism.

Quite sad really, as this would have really shown the world just what the ANC and it's goons are all about.

... unless it was "the World" who created the ANC! In which case they wouldn't have wanted anyone to see it!

Common Sense

If you have seen the clip, you will see the "waves of white hatred peeling" from him, as Lime put it. It actually makes you physically ill, gives you a knot in your stomach. Never thought a black man could hate another human so much. In a way it seems to be worse than those blacks who hacked a fellow human being to death (Terr'blanche) It's horrifying. But the duplicity takes on positively diabolical proportions when you realise that they get away with it

"Diabolical" is what those who created the ANC are all about!
They might appear to be regular multi-billionaires who own the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England, BUT they are in fact the Devil's People!

The ANC are not a self-sustaining organization.

This fact needs to be pondered deeply, for it has several interesting implications.

Foreign influence is one.

No prizes for guessing the other.

When will the western world realise that the sub saharan kaffir is of childlike intellect, and you therefore cannot argue, reason of debate with it. It is a tragedy playing out as we see it, and to expect these morons to govern in a democratic fashion is as naive as expecting a three year old to balace your cheque book.

This is a monster that the western world is primarily resoponsible for creating.

Because they are, for the time being, themselves safe from this, they will continue to hide the reality, then deny reality, then blame it on white South Africans, and then try to profit from the fall out.

With "kith and kin" like this, no wonder we are losing.
