Why MSNBC Has a 'Joy' Problem

"I get to share with you joy Reid, this MSNBC anchor who was on her program quite distressed, of course, that Twitter is no longer going to be in the control of certain elitists that want to advance certain narratives. And so she said, and I quote that Elon Musk's companies have a history of open racism. You know, she said there's been this lawsuit against Tesla and he himself is a troll. So she says his idea of freedom means freedom to be a jerk and to be cruel and to have no one be able to stop you. And then she went on. She was not done. In fact, she was just kind of getting warmed up. She said that Twitter was really bad for quite some time. They attacked women, the misogyny was crazy on Twitter for a while. Gosh, I would argue, actually, it still is joy. If you're a member of the conservative class, you still deal with that on Twitter. Anyway, she goes on to say Elon Musk, I guess he misses the old South Africa in the 80s. He wants that back. Wow. I mean, that's some pretty aggressive language. Of course, you know what? I think Elon actually would be fine with it. I mean, you may not choose to watch her. He may not choose to listen to her. He may not choose to follow her on Twitter. He may even block her. But she can say it. I mean, as long as her employer is okay with it, I guess that becomes the issue, which is why I do think MSNBC has a joy problem, shall we say, and they've had a problem for a while. I mean, it's sort of amazing. The woman is still there at the institution given that she was criticized heavily for what were considered some very homophobic blogs, right? I guess and she said some pretty heinous stuff a while back in the early 2000s, and then she came out and said, oh, actually, that wasn't me. I think I got hacked. And then the turned out actually maybe it was her and she apologized. Who the heck knows other than we do know, she's somebody who's trying to get attention.

Joy Reid Resorts to Calling Elon Musk Racist

"Check out joy Reid. The thing is the only enjoyment they get out of being in this town square is being able to harass people, being able to attack people. There was a time when people had the double hashtags around their names because they were Jewish and right wingers were saying get in the oven anytime you made any benign comment on Twitter. They attacked women. The misogyny was crazy on Twitter for a while. Elon Musk, I guess he, you know, he misses the old South Africa in the 80s. He wants that back. Elon Musk misses the old South Africa from the 80s. He's pro apartheid right joy. He's a racist. That's all they got. It's all they got. And the irony of that bitter vicious, nasty, vitriolic woman. Claiming that conservatives want Twitter so we can attack people, she is the pit bulldog of MSNBC. She's the attack dog that's the junkyard dog that will take your arm off if you're a conservative and you get within ten feet of her.

Joy Reid Pins Elon Musk as Racist

"You shouldn't really take her that seriously, but I'm going to take what she says seriously here for a very important reason because the sentiment is now how they're going to smear your Elon Musk. So Elon Musk goes and buys billions of dollars of shares worth of Twitter, and then of course everyone has to go attack him automatically because that's what they do. Oh no, you're going to go buy shares of Twitter. I must hate you. Really? I thought you guys were all into kind of like the go to Mars like green energy stuff. Now, according to joy Reid, he's racist. Play cut 59. If you're not right wingers, another bro fascist is waiting in the wings to defend your right to spew by online in the name of free speech. And that is coming up next. He is building in Tesla, documented racist company that perhaps reminds him, gives him nostalgic memories of apartheid South Africa where he grew up. He's more than that and embodiment of what I would say is Twitter's biggest strategic problem, which is a hostile, cruel, dangerous online environment, especially for women, especially for people of color, women of color in particular.

Doc Who Discovered Omicron Was 'Pressured' Into Making It Sound Severe

"I'd like to talk about the ideology of COVID and specifically of the omicron variant. Now the omicron variant was discovered in South Africa. In November, it spread since then to 57 countries. It was discovered by a South African doctor. In fact, the head of the South African medical services. A woman named doctor coxy ZEE. Angelique Kochi. And she described the virus and the symptoms in South Africa and she said, look, this is a contagious variant, more contagious than delta or the earlier variants, but she says its symptoms are also from her experience mild. And she described the South African patients who had this variant, and she basically said, look, these are people who have coughs. They have exhaustion. They have sore throat, but not a whole bunch of them are even ending up in the hospital. Now, interestingly, doctor Cote has a recent interview in the London papers that think it was in the London telegraph originally, but it's now reported elsewhere. Where she says the moment she said that, she started getting pressure from other medical authorities, not in South Africa, but elsewhere in the world, notably from Europe, saying, don't say that, don't say it smile. Don't say it smile, and she goes, well, but it is mild, and she says, quote, she goes, they kept attacking me. They kept telling me I had no idea what I was talking about. Now, the truth of it is, she does have an idea what she's talking about. They have actually now been several studies of the omicron variant. And the study showed that the omicron variant is notably milder than the delta variant. This is not to say that people don't die of all Macron. It's not to say that some people don't end up in the hospital. But basically what she's saying is that even though the sort of the good news and the bad news and the bad news is that all Macron is more contagious, the good news is that it's not as severe on average. So she's actually telling the truth about it, but what I think is striking is the way in which she was a subjected to this kind of medical and ideological, bullying. She goes, they are accusing me of lying of downplaying or only crime. Quote, in their minds, it's impossible for a disease with more than 38 mutations to be

David Friedman's New Book 'Sledgehammer' Might Surprise You

"Willing. The book is sledgehammer. How breaking with the past brought peace to the Middle East? I want everybody to buy the book. It's been out now for two days. It is number one in its category on Amazon. Congratulations, mister ambassador. I want everybody to order it, but give us a little tease. Tell us about some of the things in the book that perhaps will surprise people or surprised you as you were the point person for the president in the Middle East. Well, what I tried to do consistent with the name of the book is to show some of the challenges that I faced. And I think the most important one was the challenges I had with the U.S. State Department. And I make a couple of points. There, for example, at one point, as I was helping to orchestrate president Trump's first visit to Israel and he was the first sitting president ever to visit the Western Wall, the only to this day, the only sitting president to visit the western world. And I was pushing hard on it, and I got a call from a senior member of the State Department who called me up out of the blue and said, you know what, mister ambassador, I have a word of advice for you. Don't be so Jewish. You know, what? And I said, you know what? I'm a big boy. I've been around all kinds of ethnic epithets in my life. And you're not offending me by what you're saying, but let me ask you a question. Why do the laws of political correctness apply to everyone other than Jews? I mean, why do you feel comfortable telling me that? You wouldn't go to any other ethnic group and tell them. I'm trying to imagine an African American ambassador who's been sent to South Africa or to Kenya as the American ambassador. I'm trying to imagine a State Department official getting away not being escorted out of the building, nanoseconds after saying to the president's envoy. Can you be a little less African, please?

Eric and Naomi Wolf Discuss Virtue Signalling, From Their Yale Years to Now

"To Naomi wolf. Naomi, I have to bring this up. You and I were in the same class at Yale, a class of 84, although you graduated at age 11. But I want to say that we were in the same class, didn't really know each other, but I say that because the first time I bumped into this kind of thing that we're talking about, I'm a working class kid from Danbury, Connecticut public school, suddenly among the cultural elites, and it was very clear to me if you were in the humanities, which is which I was. There's a certain way of thinking and that if you don't think this way, you'll be labeled a bigot or something. And I remember not knowing better kind of going along with it. And I remember at our graduation being told, oh, you've got to wear these two. I wrote wrote about this in my book fish out of water. That at our graduation, everybody who was somebody had to wear two ribbons, one signifying solidarity with the, I don't know, the Yale union workers who were being oppressed by the man. You know. And with solidarity with the idea of taking our class funds out of companies that were invested in South Africa. And it was that kind of virtue signaling was the first time I'd bumped into that, but it was really strong in the early 80s at Yale in certain circles. I know you were also in those circles. But it was the first time I saw that. And all of those people have gone on to be the leaders of the world. And I feel like they bought into this. And some of them like you were independent thinkers. I don't know how you have evolved. But it's interesting to me that you're willing to say these things now. I'm willing to say these things now. But a lot of people, there's still hanging back. They're afraid of something. Right. Well, oh, Eric. This is so painful. I mean, yes, there was a very kind of monolithic right on this. And that has only gotten worse and worse. Over the decades on the left, I will note respectfully that I think the right has its own form of virtue signaling. And I guess I'll also say that when it comes to things like publicly supporting decent wages for working people or publicly supporting investment in South Africa, ironically, exactly the kind of thing that is being constructed everywhere around us and discrimination society. I agree with it. I don't think that public support for a cause necessarily is the opposite of free thinking and classical liberal values from classical people. Right. Okay, sure. But I want to go on because we're getting into very deep waters that we need to get into. I am starting to look at I've been doing a lot of reading about how the Chinese Communist Party is influencing academics. And it clearly they've bought up along with World Economic Forum, any number of the policymakers that are implementing some of the most un American. Let's put it that way. Attitudes that you have to have now. Like cancel culture, totally un American, right? Very, very Chinese, Communist Party, right? So

Is There a Correlation Between a 'Leaky' Vaccine and Higher COVID Transmission?

Is There a Correlation Between a 'Leaky' Vaccine and Higher COVID Transmission?

"So I want to ask you a question here. United States, according to the news, reports more than 325,000 new COVID cases, the highest single day increase during the entire pandemic. We are also saying that we're the most vaccinated we've been. Do you think there's a correlation between a potential leaky vaccine and higher transmission or the virus kind of continuing to be spread? Is there a correlation between the two? Well, our our public health officials announced this summer that the vaccines were not stopping transmission of delta. So we had a paper by farron halt. We had one by then cut a Krishna and we had a wedding in Houston where they all vaccinated they spread it, a cruise bustle from the military and the UK they spread it. Now we have countless examples cruise ships, military vessels, locked down groups of people. And they spread COVID to one another fully vaccinated. I think everyone should know the vaccines don't stop people from spreading COVID-19. That should be obvious to everyone. So with that backdrop, we now have data from the United States from Denmark and from South Africa all showing with uma cron. The most recent variant over 70% are fully vaccinated. All of the crime and what we're seeing right now of those record numbers of cases, it must be driven by the fully vaccinated. We have 200 million Americans in the United States have taken the vaccine. The CDC says of October, that we have a 146 million Americans that have already had COVID. There's only 330 million Americans in the country. So there's nowhere to go. You can't say it's a problem of the unvaccinated anymore. It's clearly driven by the vaccinated.

"Lot of things I can't say today, which is why I want to encourage you to go to locals. I have just signed up on the locals platform and there's sort of an additional leg to this show if you would over there on locals Trish Regan dot local dot com do come and find me there, subscribe to that platform. I'd love to have you because there's a few more things I'd like to say. I'm gonna tell you a fair amount here, but it's gonna go even further. Shall we say on that platform? Because you actually have some freedom of speech. I want to get to Joe Manchin and the reality that we're just not going to get Bill back better through that is an important story as well that's continuing to circulate in terms of the Democrats being rather delusional thinking that maybe somehow some way he will come through at the end of the day. I do not believe that's the case, but first, let's go back to Anthony Fauci and his power grab here. It's a story that we reported on Trish Intel dot com, my own website. If you haven't been there, make sure you go every day. Watch the stories that we're looking at their attrition Intel dot com. Because you've got basically Anthony Fauci, really, again, doing what I would call a kind of overreach if you would. An overreach because somehow he thinks it is perfectly perfectly sane to effectively require if you want to go from one state to another, require that you show proof of vaccination. He said, this is something that we should be looking at because it might on the margin make a difference, people that aren't vaccinated right now. They'll get vaccinated because they want to travel. This is all about you see big government trying to make this decision for you. Forget the fact that Americans should have some say in all of this themselves. According to CDC data, I want to point out 72% of Americans are fully vaccinated against COVID, 64.5 million people have received their booster shot. So by the way, the numbers are actually pretty decent. And yet this administration is always looking for excuses, excuses as to why now everybody's getting this omnikron variant. You know, it's quite possible and this was said to me by a good friend a source and someone on the left. Yeah, you know, I talk to them too. Occasionally, someone on the left said to me, no, we had a thank. South Africa. We have a thank them because at least at least it's not that horrific a variant. And it's not causing the same kind of

The nicole somewhere i probably would have voted for and i thought he could represent a version of the season. He was the first one ceiling bosley. He's the chaos. He's food stealing. he's trying to make big moves like he represented it to me to a degree kind of like how. When tom one philippines. I thought that was the perfect ending. I in cardi b. perfect mirror. He was chaotic verte. Winning would be way to clean a neat for. I'm not saying that the coyote. I'm saying because because tom was the chaos of the season him bijon john at the end it was a section and i was struggling after the episode to be like. Okay well. how do we reconcile. That's like waiting. We reconcile the narrative of the season before even getting my thoughts on coal is player. And i think i've done that like you to that better than me. Well it's tough. Because i don't disagree with you from a narrative perspective because again i think with us survivor and especially australian survivor. We have been conditioned to feel like the like a through line with the narrative of the winner of survivor. It right like they are a main character. I think even if you were nicole woman superfan. She was not the main character of survivor. South africa immunity island. That is things. She was group season. I think nicole's brother karen. The the survey found him an idol one of the highlights of my chat with her by the way was like brother was crying on the way home. Terrible about it. But i think that what i appreciate about that is that again survivor. South africa one of my favorite things about it is against the sports. And all of it all right this idea of well listen we're not going to purposely pump anyone up or shoot anyone down to like satiate some sort of unrealistic narrator for the most part of something happened out there. We're going to show it. And i think say what you want to about nicole's game like she was not as offensively think involved in a lot of the big moves as a lot of those other people. No i guess we can look back and feel like she didn't necessarily need to. I think what i have more so settled with is that the narrative of the season was essentially the ending of hamlet. This idea how all union yes essentially all these big people take each other out where you have all these buna start dismantling this zomba's and then they turn on each other and it's interesting the final. It was six to zomba's six go in a row because they all go after each other. And then we end with the to zomba's it really is a hamlet and lehrer teas and claudius and gertrude. Just all off each other and here comes and bra at the end of it to be ready to get. It's my kingdom now. That is nicole in a manner of speaking. And it's interesting because the little in congress in that nicole had by far the least number of confessionals out of the final three let alone like i would say from the final eight maybe even ten onwards and that has nothing to impugn nicole about but more so that she wasn't necessarily involved in that main line narrative that one of the main reasons why discounted her is that it was tough to see it considering. Just how big. The stories of everyone else was now. That being said was this. Like a natalie white. Oh my god like. We didn't really see anything of her but she won because smashed lost stuff. No larue himself has said that. I think if you go back and rewatch the season. There's a lot of like subtle but steady pushing of the nicole narrative throughout. I think that's a good way to describe her. Germany throughout the show is subtle but steady. I think we were all understandably obfuscated a bit by a bigger edits and moves all the people around her that. We expected to your point the winner to represent that from a traditional narrative perspective. We did not get the traditional narrative here and so that was sort of the the disparity. I felt initially until i think sort of came to terms with the fact that in the moment we didn't realize it but i really do think in the aftereffects if you're asking me. What's the story of survivor. South africa immunity island. It's this idea of even from the beginning with jason right how to play yourself out of survivor how to make mistakes how to get messy and how to pay the ultimate price for that and how slow subtle consistency ends up winning this season over those big flashy moves. Yeah i think that's been the emerging narrative for someone like larue like. It's what we say about the final two. And the edit like this will make people angry disappointed underwhelming literally angry. I'm sure and i hope. And looking at those comments and being like different..

No that's i give her no shot of winning and i should've learned from the south africa. I've said many times home had no shot of winning and here we are saying in south africa that anyone has no sort of winning ever again lesson blood and we're going to talk about it all with my co-host as always for the final time of the season survivor south africa to my window. Blinds is it is a great mike. Bloom my thanks for being here to quote. Jeff probe shannon. I think this is what you consider a life lesson. We can learn to never count anyone out. Let's let's let's some crocheted. And i know you are a vegetarian but we gotta do it. A lot of the phantom has to as well admittedly but shocking. I love it. I love how shocking it was that i think a lot of us came in based on the edit based on the characterization of everyone else say all right well nicole's guaranteed second place and here we are. I mean. listen if you've already listened to the winner and interview. You already know what's happening so us. I guess spoiler alert already retroactively. If you for some reason clicked into this into your pocket and didn't know who want survivor south africa. Nicole wellman's is your survivor. South africa champion. Nicole has somehow become the most successful name for survivor south africa performance. In the franchise. History then sent me a pie emoji and then said he has some humble pie for meeting nicole last week. This is why he's one of the greatest players of all time is. He's able to come in and be like i think it's the call like verda. What are you telling you. What are you watching. Dude day per you eating at this point clearly something seeped into your brain but no. He was able to map out literally. Her path to winning beats. Chappie is in the challenge. I would say is one of the greatest moves she makes. The entire season comes into final. Tribal council is able to in my opinion really vocalized her game incredibly well on top of that likeability and the social skills that she has zip to parlay in not only a victory shannon but a decisive victory again. Very comparable to. Tom both only on. Don't get one vote but otherwise it is a clean sweep from someone who now i will say with tom. He was gaining momentum near the end of the game as the options. Were winding down nicole. I would not say as much again. Maybe that's more of an editing thing than anything. But i think it's a little comparable in that way. I think it truly does show especially in survivor south africa. I love saying this. Anyone can win. Due to the circumstances due to the people that you play with there are several different paths to winning the game depending on who you are depending on how the chips fall and so this is just yet. Another hallmark of that value soda went into the nali of seasons staying. There was a very good chance. Tom would win. I felt that competitive. If they were sitting at the end which felt like a high possibility two out of three that she had a worse at like she was sure to be like actively lazy. In a way that i thought was like this is the editor and homeless is being self. And that's where we got and that to me was came in last evening. Like she's going to win. Because i thought. I mean those are confessional. Was like cold crying about how the challenge could win. Could change your life. And i was like i feel. He.

Hey f- when you talk about lawlessness and when you talk about violence it-it's the political elite that keep on indoctrinating south africans with lawlessness. Because if you look at this all all these commissions that we are watching television. The crime that is committed by the politician. You can see that these are the people who are us to this hellhole. You know when you look at the violence that is being meted out by the state so the ordinary poor. You could see that.

It's possible that would have the same conversation dent ten years from now if really things don't change in a confident way it's important that our democracy returns to the people it returns to citizens it returns to communities because the problem is that we made mistake. I think so as south africa during the time with trump because we looked up to liberation movements as governments in weight which was completely wrong. Because as you can see in the whole of southern africa liberation movements as governments have disappoint african people in a big way the same political elites is talking about the day the how of the political establishment here in south africa.

"Sorry the allegations against jacob zuma are essentially that when he was in power he presided over rampant corruption and privatization on a massive scale particularly involving members of an indian-born dubai-based family with extensive business interests in south africa. The gupta's there are also allegations against him a fraud racketeering and money laundering linked to a three and a half billion arms deal. He did his deputy president in the ninety s and while he says zuma still evidently has some support in the community he also attracts a lot of opposition. I can't think to understand here by the way is that zuma's party. Nc that's the african national congress is still in power in south africa. In fact it's been in power since the end of apartheid in nineteen ninety-four led first by nelson mandela than tombo becky then zuma and now president sewer ramaphosa just over. Fifty percent of the ballots counted. There is now no doubt that south africa is in transition to black majority rule. Nelson mandela led his supporters in singing the new national anthem. God bless africa free at blah mandela. The former political prisoner had achieved a lifelong dream of a norm racial democratic nation state president. Fw declerk conceded defeat. And the end of white minority rule. I shall be surrendering power not to the majority of the moment but do the south africa so he more on this. We spoke to associate professor. Jeffrey hawkeye at macquarie university. He's the editor of the australasian review of african studies. And we asked him what it was about. The detention of jacob zuma in particular that was so inflammatory does summarize really it captures an individual and they co career and they live the disappointments about what has happened or what hasn't happened are think i mean zuma himself of course is a very very long standing activists in the i say in the last man standing in hawaii and he's he'll be eighty soon. He's being active in the eye and say for more than sixty years since his teens so he was part of that the vanguard of struggle for thirty years before nine hundred ninety four he's identified identifies himself with the struggle and all of those hopes carried forward and yet. The hopes haven't been realized now that you know that means that he's a symbol in hawaii. No the issues of corruption in his personal behavior and everything for sure but he's also occupied just about every position. You can think of the i n c before he kinda the presidency and then was addicted from that and he's predicted a populist image of standing for the old values modified things better and he was struggling to make them better and he would. If you could've the forces were against him and they've chucked him out and it's terribly unfair and he's misrepresented and and sign many people except that he if he had the power and the authority to do things differently things would be different and in his reporting suck any says he seemed these things playing out this kind of mix of nostalgia. Among black south africans jacob zuma and the anc and the promises about the future that may during that time and of frustration about the levels of corruption and poverty. Along racial lines in south. Africa today physically. The situation with the agencies now is quite a quite good. These seem to be an internal friction. There are in beverly with one another some hippie that the president is in prison and i must be opposing the whole hanes e is quite divided up august whole being so the impart to do with this infighting within the anc.

Okay great so maybe could start by explaining what what exactly has been happening in south africa. Recently what ignited this bout of unrest. And where where did it all start. Physically all started a few few weeks ago when the former president jacob zuma was actually Send us to fifteen months in prison. After he fades up a state commission where allegation of corruption into tips capture the courts found impunity and actually sentenced him to fifteen months on the seventh of july. The president himself for five days to hand him over to the who turned himself over to the police and then he did. Eventually under servant of july handed himself over. former president. jacob zuma has begun serving fifteen month prison sentence for contempt of court after having himself into police. He was given the sentence last week but had attempted to evade arrest. Pending legal appeals. In the early hours of thursday though a convoy of vehicles believed to be carrying the president left his compound shortly before a deadline to turn himself in expired is contempt of court charge was for failing to show up to a corruption inquiry and flew gain. That's when the chaos static so that's why we're here to support and we support jacob zuma because we informed by the news from when he was a deputy president when he was looked count so we are here and say no we take stand and say we see what do we have prepared by him. Progress to fight. He's supposed is basically states from present is actually not feeds or old He's seventy nine now to be increasing and also as a form. An evolutionary standard form factor also spent ten years in prison shooting the up at the time. No idea to send over to please. So what happened was fluent day. Andras started with He supports us. Touching embark on various blocking a national foods with trucks and everything block off several trucks and commercial properly set ablaze since friday in kwazulu. Not tell the home of former south african president jacob zuma who supporters have been on a fiery rampage and looting spree in protest of his imprisonment and on the ninth of four or allow. Who at the friday. That's when things go to worse with trucks about twenty-five trucks and then looting started in devon surely reside and also read it through join his as well in the past days looting has spread from stores to factories and warehouses ransacking and rioting in south africa's worst violence since a hard time or drink the looting. Yeah okay so just recapping. Jacob zuma the former president and a hero of the fight against apartheid who started the protests about two weeks ago so they were large rallies against zooms detention on those contempt of court and corruption charges with his supporters out. Arguing zimmer is too old and too much of a hero figure to be pursued on those issues right and as you said he says. Those protests turned violent within days. Trucks torched on national highways blockades. Were put up and then shops will looted mainly in durban in the province of kwazulu-natal and in south africa's largest city johannesburg and while plenty of the people doing the looting and rioting was zuma's supporters. Plenty more words or didn't care. They were motivated by other deep set. Grievances now we want to talk a little bit more about the detail of the of the looting of the unrest. But i think before we do that. Can we just ask some basic questions. About jacob zuma how significant is in the in the modern history of south africa zuma. He has a huge number of followers. We learned people. Stephen supporting this number allegation that have been made team to us the state culture and his education with the the families which i still accused.

"A few countries are already administering third covid nineteen vaccine doses to vulnerable populations and talk has turned to wider rollouts. We ask whether these booster shots are justifiable epidemiologically or morally given how few have had even one and there was plenty of enthusiasm for this week's exhibition games in america's major league baseball. The national pastime is clearly in decline. We examine why so few young people go to bat for it. And what's being done to bring them to the plate. First up though south africa can to experience its worst violence since the end of apartment. Motorways have been forced to close and ambulances and telecommunications towers have been attacked businesses have been widely looted and some of them aren't the ground engulfed in flames. My livelihood is bill. Take you know with me is. I was sitting cry. Helpless with the country's largest oil refinery shutdown and farming and commerce at a standstill. There are very real fears of shortages. At least seventy two people have been killed and more than a thousand arrested over the past few days and nights that'd be an ex so public violence of a kind in the history of our democracy in a public address this week. President cyril ramaphosa called for peace is no grievance any political course but can justify the violence and the destruction but we have seen in the sheer scale of the unrest makes it hard to pin down a single cause but it all began. After former president jacob zuma was imprisoned for failing to testify in an inquiry into dodgy dealings during his tenure the protests exposed divisions in south africa political ethnic economic. Mr amaafuza had been trying to heal. And now they threatened the power of the state. Violence is still ongoing in parts of south africa. John mcdermott is chief. Africa correspondent and is based in johannesburg in the province of kwazulu-natal. There are still reports of looting and vandalism and awesome going on and here in johannesburg while things are kwacha. There's still a lot of tension in the city. And what is it that kicked off the violence. When we last spoke jason a couple of weeks ago we talked about the sentence of former president. Jacob zuma by the country's constitutional court to fifteen months in prison and that was for his refusal to appear before a judge led enquiry into the vast corruption that took place during his reign from two thousand and nine two thousand eighteen on july seventh after a lot of legal wrangling and political obstruction. Mr zuma was finally taken into custody very shortly after mr took his place in his cell. You started to see the first incitement of violence by people close to the former president. His children for example have spreads provocative messages on social media and his official foundation has repeatedly called for his release in order to stop the violence. Mr ramaphosa hinted at this in a televised address on july twelfth. At the beginning of this undressed the may have been some people who sought to agitate for violence and disorder along ethnic lines. We it was a veiled reference that the president was suggesting that mr zuma he belongs to south africa's largest ethnic group zeros was using ethnic nationalism and his allies were using ethnic nationalism in order to prevent some of the violence in addition to this incitement. They're also credible reports. That people close the mrs zuma may also have been involved in the instigation of the violence itself. And so all of this then is it just comes down to mr zuma's supporters warning him released you have to remember the ruling. African national congress party is deeply corrupt and deeply divided. Under our mr zuma a lot of people made a lot of money through corrupt means and those people whether through fealty to their so called king or because they just see that faction as the way to get jobs in contracts don't like the reign of his successor so ramaphosa so there is an incentive for those close to the former president to undermine the rule of misa ramaphosa and frankly also the rule of law in the country however. I think it's also important not to overstate. The popular support for mr zuma while there may have seen people close to him involved in the incitement instigation of the violence. What we have seen amongst the thousands of people in the streets isn't necessarily a popular political uprising but but something has drawn them out in the streets in great numbers and in some cases with with great violence. What would exactly is driving that well in south africa. There's no shortage of dried can link with which starts conflagration. There is huge discontent in the country. South africa has the highest official unemployment rates in the world inequality both of income and wealth is gaping many parts of the country. Go regularly like power and water. The police are a mix of incompetence and cruelty and all of these factors have been worsened than the by the pandemic which if you believe the excess mortality figures has killed almost two hundred thousand people and what's being done to bring this week's violence under control on wednesday afternoon. Defense minister announced that up to twenty five thousand troops would be deployed to khotang and kwazulu-natal. This represents the biggest deployment of military force since the end of apartheid. That's the scale of the violence that we're talking about here. There are also some calls including from business groups for a state of emergency. This will be a big deal. Democratic south africa given how the apartheid state used states of emergency to impose rule and remove things like habeas corpus. It seems that the government's not going to do that. And it's going to see how these troops go but everything is still on the table but given this mix of motivations and then the fragmentation of the unrest. Do you think what the.

"And one thing. I think that's important to stay about. Cfa is that we are a charity but we are not here to walk into a community and to say to them. This is what we think you need within your in a way you live. It's more about them approaching us and we think that this would work and we will then hope you. It's not about giving you something we giving you a hand up not a hand out. I'll be going to listen to the community and and take what it is. They want to do and help them to implement it so when they arrived with this amazing idea we jumped at the opportunity and so we are currently working on green the community project whereby we once upon six hundred treats this year. The trees will go to in schools so we had to choose schools. Because what you don't realize it's lots of cows castle that run in these areas. That would eat the trees so we had to choose areas that have fences so that the cheese can be protected wasn't needed to choose areas that have access to water because cheese needs to be planted so basically what we are doing is culprits can adopt school and we will pertain trees into a certain school. So you adopt a school which actually is teen trees. And that's how we are going to move between the around the community to take on the browns space to greenspace and we really excited about this project that there's a lot more sort of behind the scenes other than just greening. The this is one of our very exciting projects. How long does it take to green communities these quick growing trees. And so we've chosen it will. It's not going to be quick but we starting with the trees we've chosen three trees pick boom which is called innocent food if indigenous tree based four south africa and provides a lot of oxygen. So it's really good at creating oxygen within have streets specifically for the schools so that Kitties have reached to eat. They can either eat it or they can use it as an exchange for something else you know you can trade controlled for its and then the third is a hardwoods and so these are fees provided shade. So i dare as well being in these schools. The kids have to sit underneath You know shade for the full them. So those are the three three so once. The trees are in place we will then stocked with food gardens and that is obviously much quicker. It's much it's much more rapid to see green. But we want you really start with visit. You know a ten year vision with the trees and then we will start with food gardens which will also be in the school and so they will then obviously able to grow their own veggies. Things would they grow. Yes sir. Three big staples made me and we actually. We have a partnership with someone who will help us. Basically the only need she need says by one meters that will create enough food per month for four people so it's really small really small areas that will allow them to to feed a family of four for a month and it's very very very cheap. Which is because it starts. Let's literally seedling. So it's it's an amazing amazing project that we not in that phase just to tell us about the funding that more so quite another.

We begin the show today in South Africa with an advertisement that has sparked real anger there. It's a hair care. Add that many people say is racist protests against a company behind have already forced some of its retail outlets to close the world's Halima Conde starts us off with that story. Even Fubu decided she was done chemically straightening her hair almost a decade ago but despite being a black woman in South Africa that wasn't an easy decision back then in your natural curly hair was pretty unpopular. Buffoon says thought she didn't have the money to street in her hair with a chemical relax her or get a we've or wig from people I thought I'd fallen on hard times and. couldn't afford is lexa anymore and you. Look people kept asking me when I do my head that Miss Cooper kept up with it. She started a now popular blog called natural sisters in her video. She gives instructions on creating intricate black hairstyles breeds locked in twists her videos now get thousands of views in soup out gets compliments on her beautiful hair. Now, with more your views, I, love to hear I love your hairstyle and even when you go out with Chunky please check you brave the more positive compliment than the negative ones that I was carrying. It's a sign of how much things have changed when it comes to natural. Hair in South Africa. This is why Mukuba was. So surprised to see an ad that seemed to demean it. The advertisement was hosted on the website of clicks a major retail train in South Africa. It pictured a black woman on one side with natural curly hair that was labeled dry damaged frizzy and Dole, and then a white woman with blonde straight hair labeled fine flat and normal mclucas. Food says the AD was hurtful overused sending a message that Caucasian? Hey, that is straight and Bouncy is normal, and then the other here that you said is damaged obviously is abnormal and in a country where. The. Blacks are the majority. The ad sparked an angry reaction on social media and in real life, a political party called the economic freedom fighters said, the ad was racist and called for a boycott of clicks stores Marshall to the meany is party leader. Who made all? Of. Dozens of stores on Monday were forced to close down by protesters.
