Post-Apartheid, there are now more opportunities for black South Africans, who can pursue them through higher education. They are learning what they need to know to get ahead in South Africa — that is, how to bring down society. “Protests” are making the old-fashioned kind of learning nearly impossible:
At Wits University, where students voted overwhelmingly in a poll to return to class, militant protesters plotted ways to continue the disruptions, including occupying certain campus buildings from midnight [Sunday] night, while a handful suggested openly taking up arms. …
At a meeting in the Solomon Mahlangu Hall at Wits [Sunday], it was suggested that protesting students “fight fire with fire” and carry firearms.
“We can get AK47s. Those who have connections can assist. Even if it’s just knives. We have to fight back when the system responds with violence,” one student said.
“Violence” against protesters usually consists of not complying instantly with even their most extravagant demands.
Students at the meeting have decided to form small, highly mobile groups to target “specific academic nerve centres” to disrupt and ensure a complete shutdown of the university. They said it was easy for the police and security guards to tackle large groups but that small groups would create difficulties for the security personnel.
What about students who do not aspire to be Marxist revolutionaries? They are out of luck:
In the poll at Wits on Thursday, 77% of the 21 000 students who responded, and 91% of the university’s academics, said they wanted to return to classes.
On Friday 3,000 students and staff at University of Cape Town held a silent protest demanding that the institution re-open tomorrow. A tiny group opposed them.
Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan University students said yesterday that their riots would continue “no matter what”.
The majority of students would rather learn something more productive than how to destroy everything and seize power over the ruins. But when The People rule, what most people want doesn’t matter.
EFF commander-in-chief Julius Malema told The Times yesterday that his party fully supported the protests…
When Malema’s fanatically anti–economic freedom Economic Freedom Fighters party takes power, South Africa will have gone full Zimbabwe. It openly calls for seizing the property of whites without compensation.
As the events following the takeover of the country by communist terrorist Nelson Mandela in 1994 continue to unfold, the day when white South Africans must leave what’s left of their country in anything that will float is pretty much at hand.
At least R600-million of damage has been caused to campus property across the country since the protests started a year ago.
That’s peanuts. The monetary cost of taking a First World country and reducing it to a starving Third World basket case in the name of moonbat politics is beyond computation.
