The “woke” South African leftists are disavowing the foundations of liberal democracy & freedom (free speech, civil liberties, and so on). A recent video by political-elite social commentator, Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh, provide a glimpse into the panic of our race-obsessed Left. Their ideas are losing favour with South Africans who are tuning out from trendy-lefty politicians, political-elites & mainstream media, in favour of more conservative, family-orientated, community-based, & pro-liberty ideas & movements. BDL unpacks this issue with Martin van Staden of Sakeliga & IRR Head of Campaigns, Gabriel Crouse.
