Comment Re:Misleading and false (Score 1) 104

It's a standard, procedurally-generated right-wing parroting point that executes in any discussion about $NEW_GREEN_TECH:

"$NEW_GREEN_TECH generates an incredible amount of toxic waste to produce, even more than $OLD_FOSSIL_TECH!"

Veracity is not a factor in the algorithm, the statement is simply generated and echoed. It's interesting how right-wingers suddenly become concerned (if fact-deprived) environmentalists AND income-egalitarians ("The CEO of $NEW_GREEN_TECH company is going to get rich off the backs of the working class!" they scream, as if tax code & labor policy problems are the fault of environmental policy) as soon as fossil energy is threatened.

I know I shouldn't feed trolls, but having someone yell insults from the short bus is irritating. I can understand that without the brainpower to metephorically turn on an LED, it might seem like South Africa is a failed socialist state, especially if you rabidly consume the alt-right dogma.
However, it might be that there is more to the story.
A history of colonialism, apartheid, restricted access to education and all the other shit that South Africa has dealt with... This makes for a poorly prepared electorate and tends to allow dysfunction and corruption.
But I guess that doesn't play as well to your base.
