Democratic Alliance Councillor Dr Martin Young is going to sue 200 citizens, my subscribers, for R60-million. He said so in the comment section of my post advertising the petition for Helen Zille and Mmusi Maimane to investigate the Great Knysna Fire, and on his page.
SUE 200 CITIZENS FOR R60-MILLION
I don’t know how he arrived at that round figure of 200 people or that whopping R60-million but in his mind he’s serious. As serious is his attempt to politically intimidate people for liking or sharing my posts.
I’m frustrated by him forcing a post mainly about the fire’s victims into (another) round of politicians versus me. If the Democratic Alliance have nothing to hide, then why are they hiding? I’ve long asked for public meetings and debate but, instead, they activate propaganda campaigns against me, fail to attend Parliament hearings and repeatedly take me to court.
Young went on to threaten individuals via Inbox, stating his opinion as a doctor will carry weight in court and damage will be decided on what he could earn overseas (ha!).
COUNCILLOR YOUNG’S DIRTY EMAIL
Last night, after I banned him from my page, he sent me this email (which I should thank him for giving me permission to publish whilst laughing at his reinterpretation of it into his victory – no, Dr Martin Young, you are very much a loser):
You clearly cannot stand up to public scrutiny. I take this as an emphatic victory.
And yes, there are 200 people facing defamation charges on your account, due to your violations of libel law. Your supporters have become victims. And you are to blame.
Banning me has removed the opportunity for people to be warned.
I think your last remaining credibility and ‘popularity’ is going to vanish when people realize what cesspit you have dragged them into.
I have the law and the constitution on my side. You have nothing. Publish this – I welcome it!
I can’t even bring myself to sign this email off in an even vaguely respectful way, because in my view it would be inappropriate.
Passed the idiocy of placing a dirty email on record, passed the childishness of his last word, is a public representative choosing not to answer questions about our town’s biggest tragedy, instead opting to be an aggressor. How much more must we suffer?
This is only one of many attacks I’ve faced the past 6 years, my reward for exposing corruption which has flourished because no one will punish it. In 2016, Zille was well aware of the dirty actions by this man and his friends yet she allowed him to become councillor whereafter he’s continued to work underhandedly to the benefit of the cover-up of deeply embedded DA corruption.
Threatened citizens, share your story. I’ll help you. I’ll fight them with OUR Constitution and the Intimidation Act.
