Yawn, you still in primary school? Oh wait, anc supporter. That explains it.

Name calling is abusive or insulting language referred to a person or group, a verbal abuse. This phenomenon is studied by a variety of academic disciplines from anthropology, to child psychology, to politics. It is also studied by rhetoricians, and a variety of other disciplines that study propaganda techniques and their causes and effects. The technique is most frequently employed within political discourse and school systems, in an attempt to negatively impact their opponent.

As a cognitive bias in propaganda [edit]

Name calling is a cognitive bias and a technique to promote propaganda. Propagandists use the name-calling technique to incite fears or arouse positive prejudices with the intent that invoked fear (based on fearmongering tactics) or trust will encourage those that read, see or hear propaganda to construct a negative opinion, in respect to the former, or a positive opinion, with respect to the latter, about a person, group, or set of beliefs or ideas that the propagandist would wish the recipients to believe.

The method is intended to provoke conclusions and actions about a matter apart from an impartial examinations of the facts of the matter. When this tactic is used instead of an argument, name-calling is thus a substitute for rational, fact-based arguments against an idea or belief, based upon its own merits, and becomes an argumentum ad hominem.

Typical stan mentality, you think DA opposition equals ANC support. Most stans in this forum have come to accept that I'm anti-DA, I suggest you do the same that way my posts wont surprise you.

What has the ANC broken?

What a stupid question. Just look at everything around you. School system, Police system, Public works and services, Military, Corruption, Hospitals, Pension fund, I suppose when you have blinkers on then you are even less capable of applying your mind to reason? The only well working system is SARS for the obvious (read corruption) reasons like funding of all the corrupt schemes.

Why should the murder of this guy be dealt with any differently than any other victim in this country? The level of selective empathy is quite sickening.

You waffle/defend the anc, like any anc supporter would. So, who do you support? Who would you vote for and why?

DA is talking nonsense in the link you gave.

In your opinion. Which party then, is not talking nonsense and has your support?

Agreed.
Thousands of innocent citizens are murdered daily.
The ANC brought this on themselves

Just like white farmers bring it on themselves? :p Didn't we agree already that nobody "brings it on themselves", that crime is just disgusting?

What did he do?

Do you think it's random or infighting? It's been happening in KZN, is it spilling over to Gauteng?
