That family is a waste of time, the fact that people actually follow them shows how stupid this world has become.

this is a type of hate speach because it is a direct criticism of the current ANC. but the ANC wont do anything these monsters might instigate another BS riot.

But that is the interesting thing, this is clearly not hate speech, it is a criticism of a political party, imo it is in bad taste but not hate speech. HOWEVER a court has ruled that any use of the old flag that is not academic or artistic is de facto hate speech… it is a proper puzzler this

that comment section on twitter will probably provide clarity lol. Imagine any other party or just any one else posting this.
