Julius Malema and my fears

So much has been going through my mind lately. One of the issues that keep surfacing is my increasing unease about Julius Malema. Todays paper wrote about his overseas trip to Venezuela.  One little line mentioned the reason-to learn more about Venezuela's nationalisation policies with President Hugo Chavez.

Upon reading that the hairs on the back of my head stood up. This man is serious about nationalisation. Its more than just rhetoric that he feeds to the mass of uneducated ( and some very educated) folk with peasant mindset who gobble up all he has to say.

The fact that we have such a huge peasant mindset in this country is a major advantage to Malema.  Nationalisation sound very good to those who believe they too will finally "  share the spoils of what the rich have".

I am very very concerned about this Man. He is a wolf in sheeps clothing.

I have just discovered you on my Followers thingie so have popped over to 'read you' -

Oh MAN! Malema!
What a hairgreying phenom he is.
The only thing that comforts me is that it looks as though he is going to shoot himself in the foot with his big mouth.

Also, to remember that there was a guy called Peter Makaba who was exactly like him (now deceased) - They gave him a government post (to everyone's horror) and he became like a tame lamb.

Reality check maybe?
