Carpet Bombing South Africa

Ian Von Memerty laments in the Daily Maverick, (here, High Speed Politics), about the onslaught on our senses of all the divisive and contentious issues that South Africa is being lambasted with. Hawks playing politics, SAA, Eskom, NPA, SABC, Guptas, SARS, issues that flood our media like a barrage of artillery designed to confuse and subdue, put one off balance and disable and dishearten one.

What is this, part of a sinister campaign intended to render South Africa’s opposition to the ANC impotent and shell shocked, preparatory to the 2019 general elections? It almost seems like it.

Put more simply, it is the response of a bunch of crooks who have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar, trying to discredit anyone and everyone who has the power and the integrity to stand up to them and do anything about it, the Scorpions, Glynnis Breytenbach, Nene, Gordhan and Madonsela, to name a few notables, and that response could well turn into an on-going barrage intended to soften up and weaken the opposition. The military have a term for it. Saturation or Carpet Bombing.

We dare not let this happen. We dare not let the ANC have another go at the cookie jar because when they have finished another round of thievery, there will be even less for all the ordinary folk of South Africa to survive on than at present, which is already hopelessly inadequate.

The DDF will take every issue and deal with it separately, and indicate, by contrasting with DDF policies, just how unacceptable these issues are, and how, this time around, integrity is going to win the day.

Sunny Skies SABC Censorship

What amounts to self-censorship by SA’s public broadcaster was reported in this article by the M & G on-line “SABC ‘censors’ Numsa-Zuma reporting“, banning reporting of Numsa’s rejection of the ANC.  

This is not the first time SABC management and, presumably, the ANC, have had a hand in SABC editorial content, having also banned reporting of the booing of president Zuma at the Mandela memorial.  In fact, political influence in SABC broadcast content goes way back to the days of the Nationalist Party’s control of the broadcaster, a tradition ably carried on by their successors, the ANC.  A brief look at the SABC’s history clearly shows the extent of this interference. 

As the primary communicator in SA the SABC needs protection from all political interference. The Direct Democracy Forum communications policy outline’s how the DDF will protect the public broadcaster by affording it the protection of Chapter 9 of the constitution.  See how DDF policies will help you.

Sunny South Africa – SABC Style

South Africa will be 70% cloudless with sunny skies regardless of the storms in our back yards, the hail, the snow, the storm-clouds on the horizon, the odd tsunami and hurricane and floods, droughts and assorted mayhem.  This according to acting chief operations officer at the SABC, Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

Where do the ANC get their puppets from?  Next they will be believing their own propaganda.

The Direct Democracy Forum promise a hands-off policy regarding its relations with the news industry.  The news and media industries will be expected to reflect the truth, not as the DDF hope for it but as it is, warts and all.  If we live in denial about our problems how will we ever fix them?

Look at DDF Communications Policies and DDF Security Policies to gauge or intentions.
