The powerful global alliance known as the Socialist International held its 24th Congress calling for bigger and more centralized global governance as well as more handouts from productive economies. Meanwhile, the summit host, South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC), is facing mounting international pressure over the genocide of white farmers and its increasingly overt communist ambitions.
The meeting concluded by adopting various resolutions demanding more money from Western taxpayers, bigger and more powerful government at all levels, and, unsurprisingly, more socialism in the world. “The Socialist International is now stronger than ever before,” the group boasted on its website after the Congress, sometimes referring to its members as “comrades.”
Aside from the controversial resolutions, bragging about its growing influence, and platitudes about “democracy,” there was a lot going on at the summit as well. It featured representatives from over 100 socialist and communist-minded political parties all over the world ranging from the Sandinistas in Nicaragua and the Algerian National Liberation Front (FLN) to European social democrats and Latin American statist extremists.
Communist-backed ANC South African President Jacob Zuma, who hosted the Congress and now regularly sings illegal songs calling for genocide against white South Africans, was elected as “vice president” on the “Presidium” of the controversial socialist alliance. His Deputy President, Kgalema Motlanthe, told delegates there was a “global crisis of capitalism and imperialism.”
