The events inside and around parliament on February 9 — the violent ejecting of opposition Economic Freedom Fighters from the legislature, the pepper-spraying of guests in the public gallery, the repression of journalists, the deployment of the army on the streets of Cape Town, the thuggish behaviour of ANC MPs —  should not have surprised anyone. South Africa’s constitutional values and sense of democracy have been slowly eroded since President Jacob “Jiggaman” Zuma took power of the ANC in 2007. No one man can be wholly responsible for the democratic failings we see here, but Jigga has led by example and many have followed. The Con traces his sordid, sickening trail of democratic destruction, plus some “homie don’t play” moments, with this series of videos:

The logical conclusion at #Sona2017. Military deployed outside parliament, guests inside parliament are pepper-sprayed, opposition party members assaulted and removed, ANC MPs shout expletives and tell opposition MPs to “Fuck Off!” without censure from the Speaker…  #ZumaDon’tGiveAFuck #SAisFucked
