Let's talk nicely



Every once in a while I'm lambasted with people telling me to go and tell my stats to "insert victim of horrible crime here" and see what they think.


And yes...when I reflect on how they must feel when they read my site I can easily empathise and see what a horrible callous smug little arsehole I must seem like.


I recently responded on http://www.sarocks.co.za/ to one such accuser...


Mr Rooster,
Maybe you should go sell your statistics to the families of these:

people.

Dear Werner.


I could find you examples of murdered and grieving families in any country in the world. It's a tragedy and the perfect murder statistic would be zero and we should strive for that. I'm as anti violence as anyone and I can't imagine how terrible it must be to lose someone you care about or yourself to such a senseless disgusting act.


So here's my defence.


You know the most effective tool to fight violence ?


Giving people something to lose. And the best way to do that is socio-economically. The best way to stop violence is to improve living conditions and we won't do that unless we attract foriegn investment and tourism.

South Africa has less tourist murders a year than Australia and we have twice the amount of tourists. For a reference to this please click on my "archive page". So it's not irresponsible to do this. Tourist money potentially offers massive jobs and income. And the benefit of foriegn investment speaks for itself. And indeed the two go hand in hand. The gross majority of people who come to South Africa are amazed at hos distorted their view on africa is and they spread the good word back home and it snowballs.


Now everytime someone paints a gory sensationalistic picture of the crime in S.A it's doing exactly this : Chasing away foriegn investment and tourism and hurting the country. In effect this makes South Africa a more dangerous place and increases the chances of such a senseless crime happening again.


So I argue there is definately a place for calming everyone down to a dull roar and asking them to think and speak rationally about the country. Don't paint rosy pictures and if you were a victim of a violent crime by all mean I would never dare assume tell you how you ought to react.


And to those who weren't a victim. I know all the sensationalism the media feeds us because I experience it everyday. Hopefully this little site of mine serves as a mild counter balance to some of fearmonger going around. Don't let fear cloud your judgments. There's a great potential and lifestyle to be found here and god knows even the most cynical hateful of South Africans living abroad would never ever deny how painfully beautiful this country and people are. That's of course what really hurts....the feeling that someone forced you to leave this paradise.


So again. To those who've suffered trauma I urge you to understand that I'm not pissing in the face of your suffering. I'm just trying to fight for the 99 962 out of 100 000 South African who won't get murdered this year. Without foriegn investment this resource rich and brilliantly creative country simply can not suceed and overcome our issues. And at this junction with the world's eyes on us it's imperative someone makes a stand against the doomsdayers.


There's just too much at stake otherwise.
(ps : To the www.zasucks.com people ...if the positive thinking picture makes you sick, take sollace it was said by fellow anti zionist Henry Ford.)

I think I have been a bit harsh on you, Mr. Rooster! One of your comments on SAS did irate me a bit because I thought you sounded just like everyone else but when I started reading your blog I realized your attitude actually makes a lot of sense! Down with the doomsdayers!!! I'm all for positive thinking/attitude. I have a business proposal for you but I'll rather discuss it privately. I'll drop you an email.

I know it can be difficult to maintain a positive attitude with the current situation but I really admire your pro-active stance.
It is always nicer to get a pat on the back rather than to get stabbed in the back. One of my favorite ways to create positive energy is to bake cookies and bring them to work.
Positive thinking may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people at SAS to make it worth the effort....

you lied to me

The Rooster said...

I put the S.A.S link right in the bottom of my article. So why would you think you'd be achieving anything by linking to them (because that was your agenda).

Ps : How did I lie ?

+++++++++++++++
Who is fighting for the 38 that do? (assumeing you stat is correct - which I highly doubt - crime stats are not exactly transparent in South Africa as a government policy).

You are one of those that think this is great? Well it isn't. What is the ANC goverment doing for those 38 people? FUCK ALL. Have you walked into a police station recently? What a joke and it's been like that for years.

They just don't care about the farmers who are butchered by the dozen every year becuase they are simply following the command of their erstwhile YL president Peter Mokaba who has thankfully departed this world.

The point is not the 99whatever people that aren't murdered - it's about the 38 that are and not giving a toss about them.

-------------------


Don't give me that ! Given that of those 38 people only 1 will be white. (1 in 33 murders happen to white people) ... You people at www.sasucks.com are absolutely not in the slightest bit interested in fighting for these people.You celebrate and dance with joy at every black murder. And truth be told every horrible death in south africa excites you too. In your mind it validates your decision to lave the country, or helps validate your condisideration.

This is not some theory. I've lived abroad for many years too. I have heard the most insane stories about my own country from expat south africans to the point I would often say " I mean come on......you're joking right ? We lived in the same South Africa ?"

And yes , of course crime is something we must all be concerned and proactive about. It's simplisticed to see crime as a problem for the police to deal with. But in a country with such a disparity of ruch and poor that's never going to work. We need to heal racial rifts and uplift the cronically poor and then we'll be on our way. Shouting about ridiculous stories like "it's common to see dogs walking around with dead babies in teir mouths" are just going to make you look like a crackpot and will achieve sweet fuck all.

Jesus Christ Rooster???? What fucking planet are you living on? You are so dof that I feel embarrassed on your behalf.
Let us look at some of your ramblings…

You start off with:

“And yes , of course crime is something we must all be concerned and proactive about.”

All except you are proactive, Rooster. You deny that there is a crime problem. You pretend everything is rose coloured and happy...Stupid twat. You carry on...

“It's simplisticed (sic) to see crime as a problem for the police to deal with.”

What?? It is their fuckin’ job to deal with crime you moron. What do you suggest we do? Deal with it ourselves? Are you preaching vigilantism, Rooster? Maybe I actually agree with you on this one...but lets carry on...

“But in a country with such a disparity of ruch(sic) and poor that's never going to work.”

First of all you are speculating and second you are saying it is a crime to be rich. It is rich and hardworking people’s own fault that they are being killed, raped and robbed by black scum who do not want to study, who do not want to work and who just want to rob rape and kill. You are having dangerous Socialistic and even Communist views you piece of shit. What???? Whites should give everything they worked for...WORKED FOR...to Kaffirs who park off in the sun and drink beer the whole day?...Fine...Let’s start by you, you fucking idiot. Sell your computer and everything you got and give the money to the Blacks and see if it makes their lives better...and when you have done that we will follow suit. Promise...

But let’s carry on with your diatribe...

“We need to heal racial rifts and uplift the cronically poor and then we'll be on our way.”

First of all, it is not OUR (I think you mean Whites here) responsibility to uplift the “cronically” (sic) poor (I think you mean Blacks here). If Blacks are our equal and if they are so fucking good, why do they not uplift themselves? They certainly have enough money via the ANC. If they have billions to spend on arms and ships, then certainly they have money for upliftment. Come explain to us Rooster....what is holding Blacks back? Oh sorry I already know the answer, “The legacy of Apartheid and Colonialism”....Thank fuck for Apartheid otherwise Blacks would not have had anything to blame their failures on.
We carry on with your moronic verbal vomit....

“Shouting about ridiculous stories like "it's common to see dogs walking around with dead babies in teir (sic) mouths" are just going to make you look like a crackpot and will achieve sweet fuck all.”

No Rooster, you are the crackpot. What is ridiculous about that story? Prove it wrong if you are so convinced it is bullshit. No you can’t...thought so...Doos.

Some decent comments worthy of a response. I'm drinking whisky and watching soccer so I'll save my thoughts for later tonight.

I think there is a word for that - it's called embarrassment! Just following the fine example set by his beloved ANC - if you fuck up - cover up!

The Rooster said...

If getting drunk and loud and obnoxiously berating the failures of others in the context of sport is embaressing to you , then you should leave this country ! What's wrong with you people ? I took it down because it's not topical.

You would make an excellent ANC spin doctor.

Why did you put it up in the first place then?

I was drunk and celebrating. Don't project your anal retentive sensibilities on to me and I won't try force you to accept fun as part of your life either.

Wish they'd offer me the job !

he he...really though. I think I'm pretty free of spin except now and again when I find it necessary to counter other peoples spin.
