African National Council’s Youth League Tweets “Keep Calm and Kill Jews”
This isn’t a surprising development. The ANC is a nasty party. The ANC Youth League is a horror show formerly headed by wannabe thug Julius Malema. And bigotry is the default mode.
A concert at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in South Africa featuring Israeli saxophonist Daniel Zamir turned ugly Wednesday night when members of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) group began to sing, “dubula e juda” (“shoot the Jew”) as concert attendees were entering the music hall
Our own BDSers would love to sing that, but they tend to be a little more restrained. And now there’s this...
The SA Jewish Board of Deputies wrote a letter to the African National Congress on Sunday to act against hate speech on a Twitter account that was believed to belong to the ANC Youth League.
“We were appalled to learn that earlier that day (Sunday) via a Twitter site presumably used by the ANCYL, namely @ANCYLVote2014, a message calling for the killing of Jews was tweeted,” the board said in its letter.
ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza said the party did not encourage hate speech and would look into who created the account, as it was not an official one.
The account was subsequently deleted from the social networking site.
The ANCYL called on its members and supporters to interact on social media with care and in a constitutionally accepted manner.
The last two paras are an obvious admission that their people were behind it. Meanwhile the ANCYL followed up its condemnation of the deviation from the line of the ANC (Yes that’s the language used. Commies can’t help sounding like Commies) with a demand that the government act to isolate “Apartheid Israel.”
That call contains a blatant warning, “Our government must listen to the tens of thousands of protestors who have gathered across South Africa to demand that our leaders deliver on these simple and clear demands; we do not need to test the patience of these masses.”
Yes, no need to test their patience when it comes to killing Jews.
