Julius Malema, hate speech and Canada's Own

Julius Malema is the 28 year old leader of the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL), the youth wing of governing party. He is currently visiting Zimbabwe as a guest of Mugabe's Zanu-PF and raising a storm by singing the apartheid era resistance song "Kill the Boer", which he is now barred from uttering in South Africa under their hate speech laws.

Between the links above, and the video interview below, and I cannot help but think he must be the long lost Maximum Leader our own speech-nuts and Blogging Tories have been looking for (sorry Ezra and Stevie). Note his incoherent argument, inconsistent mix ideology and action, no grasp of said ideology, inflammatory eliminationist rhetoric that towers above what passes muster here, all seemingly motivated by a perpetual sense of victimhood and outrage, and make up your own minds.

ALSO, note below how Debora Patta sets the standard for interviewing shifty and imbecilic politicians from the ruling party. That we might dream of such journalism here...
