Just yesterday I said in an article that The student fee protests are not about student fees. It is a revolution
This morning The Afrikaans newspapers ran with a story titled
”#Fees must fall” now develops to “#ANC must Fall”
…And it is developing broader than just a student protest…But the ANC said it is not worried.
He said that the ANC will continue to be committed to supply free education to the students “but it depends on the availability of resources”…
Let me decode that Commie-Speak for you…It depends on whether there will be enough money left over after the ANC stole it from the taxpayers.
Security guards advised him to rather leave, which he hastily did.
Aubrey Matshiqi an independent political analyst said that the “Fees must Fall“ protest is not about fees, but because the youth were promised the world in 1994 and the ANC could not deliver. It is a new freedom struggle, born out of frustration, because the parliamentary processes did not bring about the change the people wanted.
No shit Sherlock!
Mcebo Dlamini the former chairman of the Wits student council said to students: “The revolution is not going to come to you. The ANC will never give you free education. We are going to have to take it!”
Prof. Max ¬Price Vice chancellor of UCT said his university fully supports the students. At the University of Pretoria a small group of academics joined the students with placards.
What you are seeing is the so called “Transfer of the allegiance of the Intellectuals” as described by Dr. Crane Brinton in “Anatomy of a revolution”.

This morning the students and academics are marching to the Union Buildings and breaking down the fence. Everybody should join them. Break down the entire Goddamn building. We built it. It is ours. Destroy it!
SA Student council says a Third Force, namely Cosatu is behind the protests. Cosatu denies it.
Let me explain to you why.
As you can see the revolution is in hand. What we have been talking about for so long is finally here...Marching to Parliament, marching to Luthuli House, marching to the Union Buildings are all happening right now.
What is shocking is that so many people are not recognising the revolution for what it is, because it is not going the way THEY wanted it to go. Some people (like on the Praag.co.za website) think that these naughty students are just hooligans and should just get their bottoms smacked. They have lost track of their priorities. GETTING RID OF THE ANC IS PRIORITY NUMBER ONE. I am sick of the ANC. I am sick of their misrule and corruption. Stuff waiting until 2016 for voting. The ANC must go NOW!!!
I don’t care how they go, but they must JUST GO!
Further. If this is a FAKE revolution (like some sceptics feel) set up by the ANC to fail to discourage further revolutionary attempts, then we SHOULD join in and hijack it so that it does not fail.
The ANC is not stupid. They have instructed the police to use minimum force but Close to a hundred students have been arrested country wide
If they don’t use minimal force, it will turn against them. They are faced with a dilemma.
I can tell you now what you can expect if the student protests carry on.
The ANC will give in. They will crack. The students will get their 0% increase, but by then the people would have seen the ANC’s weakness and will go for the jugular. The ANC will crack down with force and escalate the revolution. Then they will call out early elections to give them legitimacy to rule and crook the elections, but the people won’t accept the results and depose the ANC.
Blade Nzimande can laugh all he wants and joke all he wants about “StudentsMustFall”...If I was him and the ANC, I would pack all my stolen Rands in suitcases and start making plans to get me on a safe flight to some Caribbean Banana Republic as soon as possible, because if they don’t, they might just get the Mussolini treatment and be swung from a lamppost in Adderley street.
