The Ubuntu Party is stupid and dangerous and stupid and dangerous and stooopid! At their meeting in Knysna, South Africa, I felt like I was at the beginning of a cult. Hippies & conspiracy nuts sacrificed intelligence and the well-being of our town to their intergalactic leader, Michael Tellinger, who soaked in the blood of their worship.
Meeting Tellinger was an absolute disappointment. He relies on charm and, where that fails, arrogance. He was unable to provide practical answers supporting the Ubuntu Party’s manifesto.
THE ‘FREE ELECTRICITY’ ELECTION LIE
Running the election on a “Free Electricity” campaign that he can’t deliver is a dangerous falsehood. I fear for the life of any Ubuntu politician who gets elected in a poor area where they failed to deliver that promise. South Africa isn’t known for that kind of tolerance.
When Tellinger couldn’t provide facts, he’d use insults that were soft on the ears of his followers but loud on mine that was open. Telling me that I didn’t have a high enough consciousness and that I should have chosen to walk through the door as a human being does not, for example, practically explain how electricity will be generated and distributed.
I said that the system is so rotten that you can’t simply generate electricity for yourself. You’d have to sell it to Eskom who would then sell it back to you. Tellinger’s response was, “We’ll just unplug them and plug ourselves in.”
No, Dear Cult Leader, that is not how electricity distribution in a city works.
ONE VOTE, MUCH LAUGHTER
Tellinger’s claim that getting just one person elected in one small town would implement their policies is Pluto dust too. Their councillor would simply be outvoted with laughter… not because the other councillors don’t have a higher consciousness but because the Ubuntu Party don’t have a practical plan.
Do you think I’m cruel? There were people in that room whom I’ve known and liked for years. They will certainly think I am. But to accept that which damages both our minds and our town would be far crueler.
PLEASE DON’T VOTE FOR THE UBUNTU PARTY
I’m an activist fighting DA corruption. To shut me up, they repeatedly take me to court. They tried to discredit me with a propaganda campaign, ridiculous blaming me for the destruction of our town’s economy and associating me with vileness, even paedophilia. They have tried to discredit me, destroy my life.
To make you understand how stupid I consider the Ubuntu Party to be, how foolhardy your vote for them would be, I’d rather you vote for the DA.
