Great misunderstandings of our time

From South African daily, The Mail & Guardian (sounds like the merger to end all mergers, doesn't it?) :

"African National Congress Youth League leader Julius Malema has apologised for creating the impression that he was inciting violence with his "kill for Zuma" statements, a spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday"...."If we did sound like we're inciting violence, we are very sorry," Malema said".

How could anyone possibly think that "Let us make it clear now: we are prepared to die for Zuma. Not only that, we are prepared to take up arms and kill for Zuma" might suggest that Malema was committed to anything other than liberal democracy?

A little digging suggests that Malema is routinely as delightful.
