I've been obviously slack about the blog of late. I've been busy moving to a new possie amongst other things. So just a few observations around recent events to fill the time.
False flag bullshit.
My "Oupa" comes to me the other day with an sms he's received. Apparently pamphlets are being handed out around Pietermaritzburg telling black people to kill as many whites as they can on freedom day. He was quite concerned and freaked out by this terrible "news". My reaction ? Eye rolling.
And of course I was right. Freedom day came , no pamphlets were ever found, no one was killed. Tonight's results ? Afrikaaners panicking about the world coming to an end turning out to be based in reality = 0 ....It all turning out to be neurotic scaremongering drivel = 770 000.
Yup I'm so used to Afrikaaners far right winged propaganda by now that I'm absolutely numb towards it. It's the old story about the boy crying wolf. Scaremongering tactics like this which (to me anyway) are obviously instigated by the radical right wing trying to scare the neurotic whities into some kind of call to arms have become so over done in this country it has had quite the opposite effect.
It's because of these tactics I find it hard to even tolerate anyone rambling on about farm murders or white genocide. I classify them in the same category as the recent "Pietermaritzburg call to kill whites" or the "When Mandela dies they're going to murder us" Uhuru bollocks. You're not doing your cause any favours boys.
Ironically every time you frighten people and it turns out to be bullshit you're effectively carrying out what we in psychology call "exposure therapy". This is when a person with an irrational fear such as "lifts" or flying etc is forcibly exposed to the stimuli that sets off the fear. After experiencing the stimuli enough times the patient slowly becomes desensitised towards it and slowly the irrational fear disappears. In other words...the more a person learns to associate this type of scaremongering and the inevitable "nothing happened" aftermath, the more likely he is to get rid of what was the cause of his susceptibility in the first place : Irrational fear of black people.
So keep it up with your blowhard bullshit. You're helping the cause of us rational South Africans immensely.
Just over a month until the world cup.
....and can you believe it ? Motherfokkers are still thinking they're helping the country in some way by hoping it's a f-up ? Please someone explain to me how you make South Africa a better country to live in by actively hoping for it to fail ?
End of the day it's a sports tournament. Yet the amount of bad will some whites are projecting onto it goes beyond mildly psychotic at times. I just don't understand this psyche at all other than in simple terms : You're grumpy old men who given the choice of everyone in the world being happy or everyone being miserable would (and I honestly believe this) choose miserable. Sad.
People have really messed up perceptions about crime here.
My dad is a good bloke, but he's none too bright or informed. The other night we were having a debate with above mentioned "Oupa" (whose just a plain doos). Grumpy old doos was telling us after he recieved the sms how the blacks all want to kill us and this country has gone to shit etc. I just entered in with my usal bag of facts and stats and educated hom how in every single way the country is better off now than in 1994. DEspite him hating everything about blacks he has to admit the obvious things : Sure the country is fare wealthier , sure the education , health care , housing , social conditions etc are far better for almost everyone. And then finally...I put it...plus violent crime is down 44%.
Oooooh no ! I went too far ! "Bullshit !" "Crap !" "Oh fuck off and come back when you talking about."
I calmly gave them the numbers. You know ...that indeed there are 44% less violent crimes now....and even though we still have a violent crime rate probably in the top 50 of the world there's really nothing unique about it. And besides as whites our murder rate was less than most of Eastern Europe etc.
And that's when it came out. I didn't know what I was talking about. If only I knew the real truth. So they told me : 300 000 South Africans are murdered each year and most are white.
How do people get so brainwashed they would believe such obvious bullshit ? How entirely lacking of any critical thought can a person be before actively losing any ability to be rightfully called "a sentient being" ?
I think even the most cynical cocksucking far right winged doos would even admit "Ok, you're Oupa is a dumb crazy doos." But to me it is frightening that people like this exist in this country. I can only shake my head in pity, for it's testiment to a miserable way of life that you build the world in your own mind to be such an ugly place.
Oh well...enough spewing out the first thing that comes to my mind. I'll try put out some articles in which I put actual effort in the future now that life is sane again.
Peace and love
