- EFF leader Julius Malema shared a video on social media that many say is inciting violence against white people
- The post got mixed reactions from South Africans
- Some people feel it is irresponsible of a political leader to post such videos while others agree with Malema
Julius Malema is probably one of the most outspoken and controversial politicians in South Africa.
The EFF leader has gotten into hot water over his comments countless times, and he is at it again.
On Sunday Malema shared a video on social media with a simple caption: "Amen."
The video is of Louis Farrakhan, an American activist, and discusses the need for violence for freedom. In the video, Farrakhan says that there cannot be freedom without violence.
There is no freedom without the shedding of blood; I’m sorry to say this, nonviolence is not going to bring the land back to us.
Apparently, these the words Malema agree with. Louis Farrakhan is a self-proclaimed black nationalist. He is the leader of the religious group Nation of Islam.
Farrakhan also says in the video that white people got what they have through violence and the only way to get freedom is by fighting against the white people.
Don’t let that white man tell you that violence is wrong; every damn thing he got, he got it by being violent.
The tweet got some very mixed responses from South Africans, and Briefly.co.za decided to share some of the tweets.
Some claimed to be born ready to fight for what they want, while others think Malema only wants to cause trouble.
The South African reported that many people see Malema as a treat for journalists, as he is regularly causing headlines letting out controversial comments.
