Parallels to SJWS

The foldings are (similar as the American SJWs who vulgarized offset from Gender Studies and African American Studies and put as dogmas) from an academic fashion emerged, the Postcolonial Studies. The fact that they are even more radical claims as their American equivalents, is, among other things, at the close to movements such as the extremist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), the party and movement of the former ANC Youth Organization Chef Julius Malema (cf. ANC loses at local elections in Sudafrika).

Malema, a Pedi (North Sotho), was excluded from the ANC in 2012 after he asked to stream the government of the neighboring Tswana State Botswana, because they "Stool of imperialism" may be.

However, Botswana’s residents with economic growth of 5.2 percent and an inflation rate of 3.8 percent of African ratios is relatively good — unlike those in northutse-like Zimbabwe, whose head of state Robert Mugabe is worshiped by Malema because he masses wet Farmer expropriated without adding to the economic consequences (see. African prasident as "Racist of the year" Excellent and Zimbabwe exposes the validity of its preservation).

Therefore, because Malema said the Arab broadcaster Al-Jasira, he and his uniform red uniformed pears became the SudaRican government "Remove with the weapon in hand", If you do not disappear different.

In the mailGuardian, the most traditional left-liberal weekly newspaper Sudafrikas, warned Marius Oosthuizen therefore to take and believe the phenomenon foldings on the light shoulder:

Narrative, as easy as a TV drama

In his opinion, their narrative (which reproduces the functioning of the world, although not taking revaluities, but still spreading rapidly because they disassemble as simple solutions as a television drama) with one of the promises of apartheid-ended youth (the instead of a trickle instead of a trickle -Down effect only one "sprinkler system" Experienced, the contaminants on PartyGangwellelt) on such fertile ground that "New fascist nationalism" arise and ensured that there are universities instead of clashes with ideas with stones and bullets.
