Judge Leon Halgryn ruled that the singing of the “kill the boer” song is illegal. Just as illegal as saying other words that could offend certain races, people or groups, he used an example.
The ANCYL league will now be singing it illegally if they do continue singing the kill the boer song. Thousands of farmers and boers have been murdered since 1994 and for the ruling party of the country to go to court to keep on singing a song about murdering a minority in the country says a lot about those that rule or govern South Africa.
North Korea said there is a state of war in the Korean peninsula. This is according to South Korean media and the Korean National Peace Committee.
North Korea or specifically those that issued the statement, whether this is an official statement or not we cant say but they did say that the US and South Korea is using the military drills as front to invade North Korea.
If the Korean National Peace Committee have the authority to speak on behalf of North Korea then there is war.
In the United States many things are illegal and starting to be illegal. You cant take a photograph because then you are profiled, you cant disagree with government then you are a terrorist, you cant protect your head when police beat you with battons because then you are resisting arrest. Now to put the cherry on the cake of the police state S510 passes.
There is a lot of controversy and people argue on what can or cant be done under this bill but most people agree that you cant grow your own fruit or vegetable garden in your own backyard.
With only 220 files released of more than 250 000 a lot is still to be revealed. Thus far there was only one file about South Africa and hopefully there will be more history bits that no one has ever seen.
However, the top countries are Iraq, Turkey, Iran, Israel, China, Afghanistan.
Seeing that China is the 5th most filed country we can expect some diplomatic chaos, the most expected was off course Iraq.
Part of the Wikileaks release files released yesterday we see talk about "one man one vote" long before the end of apartheid. One of the issues Nelson Mandela had and wanted to define was the definition of one man one vote.
The famous words when Nelson Mandela came out of prison was just that and his plan all along had come to pass. The document also mentions a issue with the SACP but it does not elaborate to say what that issue was.
(edit: The issue was "white fears". White people feared the relationship between the SACP and the ANC as the document indicates.)
The massive wikileaks files was released last night but so far only 220 out of more than 250 000 files were released. What the holdup is no one knows but it sure is going to reveal some interesting things about history and maybe about South Africa.
One of the 220 files released speaks of Nelson Mandela being sure that he was going to be set free along with other prisoners.
At one part of the document it also says that Mandela told visitors “He has a good opinion of De Klerk as a sincere individual even though he regards him as still the leader of the national party and not more than that.”
The document also speaks of Essa Moosa that spoke with Mandela where Mandela talks about his release from prison, the unbanning of the ANC and the lifting of the state of emergency.
The Fighter is like one of those unfortunate trailers that makes you want to watch the movie in the first minute but the trailer just keep on showing more scenes giving away integral parts of the story. Trailers are there to entice people to watch a film not to show the whole film in three minutes. If you do not like to know the whole plot of a film before you watch the movie then do not watch this trailer.
The Fighter is a biography film about the life of a boxer ‘Irish’ Mickey Ward and his older brother Dickie Eklund. Mickey Ward(played by Mark Wahlberg) is a professional boxer who dreams of making it big. Everything he knows he was taught by his big brother Dickie Eklund(played by Christian Bale) who was a champion who lost his title and then lost his way. Mickey meets Charlene(played by Amy Adams) when he realises his brother is more a hindrance than help. His ever present determined family and Charlene fight over what is for the best for Mickey until they all realise the only way Mickey will ever be more than a small town boxer is if they work together.
Last week the US Department of Homeland Security ceased more than 76 domains because of “Copyright-infringment”. These were mostly torrent sites but it shows where things are heading.
The domains were ceased on the eve of a massive Wikileaks file release and that could mean that the US government is showing that they will cease domains without court orders or without the owners being found guilty of anything.
It is almost as if the DHS is getting ready to blame all sites that post or share the Wikileaks files and (or) label them as “infringing copyright” (or illegal). That is just speculation but one wont be too surprised if that is in fact going to happen.
ICANN is the people that watches over domain names and decides what happens. Unfortunately for the rest of the world ICANN is also in the US and under the power of the US.
The US government is on a mission to censor the internet, lock up law abiding citizens in concentration camps, invade countries that have oil and to strip their citizens of their rights.
The one most people in other countries should be worried about is the first point. This week the US government ceased and censored 76 domains. These domains were mostly torrent sites but it shows the direction the US is heading.
Does that mean the rest of the internet is in danger?
As usual the US is forcing their views upon the rest of the world.
Just like the “war on terror” started by taking the aim at real terrorists and then turned that war on law abiding US citizens the same will happen with the internet. They will first go for the so called copyright infringers to test the ground. Then they will change their game to take over any domain that is against the US and that disagrees with the policies of the US, like activists, political groups or anyone that can expose or take power from the government.
The internet is in danger because it depends on a fascist government to be free and uncensored.
