The article has some interesting comments by a leader in the movement, Julius Malema.
‘Malema also said "the time for reconciliation in South Africa "is over," News.com.au reported. "Now is the time for justice," he said, adding, "We must sensure (sic) that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land."’The next paragraph is even more revealing,
‘Malema has been a strong supporter of confiscating land from white farmers, saying in 2016 he was "not calling for the slaughter of white people–at least for now."’All that is disturbing enough but won’t do much to change my personal life. What got me in regard to recent attempts at censorship was at the end of the article. The petition referred to in the article was on something called Change.com. I know nothing about the site but I know Leftist (Progressive, Communist, Democrat, elitist, Rino) talk when I hear it. Here is what the site spokesman had to say,
‘A spokesperson for Change.org told Newsweek it would look into whether the petitions violate any company policies and whether the website plans to take any action. The website later added a note stating it had "received flags from some Change.org users that facts contained in this petition may be contested," adding: "You may consider researching this issue before signing or sharing."’In other words, we have a site that is seemly there for people to advocate change and start petitions. Being revealed as a leftist site it become clear that the desire for freedom of expression only extends to those on the left.
The battle of censorship is all around us.
