Under pressure from the Economic Freedom Fighters, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and the African National Congress approved an amendment to the nation’s constitution to allow the seizure of land without compensation.

On Tuesday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn played an audio clip of EFF leader Julius Malema declaring, “We are cutting the throat of whiteness!”
He compared the dangerous Marxist movement in South Africa to the socialist ideology of “redistributing wealth,” which is beginning to gain traction in the United States.
“This is a group of Marxist-Leninists who have now become the third-largest political party in the country,” Glenn said of the EFF. “Their leader [Malema] has brought the EFF into the spotlight by tapping into populism. He fingered the white man as the answer to all their problems, declaring at a rally back in January, ‘Go after a white man.'”
“The EFF’s numbers and popularity have grown so large now that they were actually able to force the African National Congress to begin seizing … land owned by white farmers and giving it to black South Africans. That policy has already begun,” Glenn added.
“It all began with a small group of Marxists that were able to capture the national spotlight by harnessing hatred,” he continued. “We don’t have land redistribution here — yet. But the rise of democratic socialism (in the U.S) and Marxism in South Africa should sound uncomfortably familiar. Look what the new left is doing and saying here in America. They’re categorizing each of us into groups and identities, and turning us, one against the other, social class against social class, race against race, gender against gender. Today’s ‘social justice’ is the undercover name for yesterday’s ‘bourgeoisie-proletariat workers revolution.’ It’s Marxism coming from the flank, rather than straight ahead.”
