David Scott, popularly known as The Kiffness, has drawn the ire of many a South African social media user after he tried to compare Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema with Adolf Hitler.
Scott made the comparison in a YouTube video, which was inspired by a similar sentiment shared by the DA in response to the EFF’s protest outside Brackenfell High School following a racist incident at the school.
“The Nazis had the brown shirts that went around terrorizing minorities, South Africa has the red shirts #BrackenfellHigh,” tweeted the DA.
“It’s actually quite scary how similar the parallels are… we can learn from history and make sure history isn’t repeated here in South Africa,” said Scott.
Scott, whose position on many an issue has been known to rub people the wrong way, received many reactions to this latest assertion.
White people are obsessed with being oppressed that they’re starting to draw parallel to huge terrible things they did. I don’t knoww how whites don’t see in most cases they’re the common denominator of kak.

Bruh for real all The Kiffness did was buy some musical equipment from Takealot Daily Deals, create some dog average parodies and target the Caucasian market. We’re now required to endure his idiocy as a result.

Basically using your platform to spread a biased, false statement which will ignite hatred amongst South Africans once more. Poor taste.

If you really knew what the Nazi did to Jews you wouldn’t be throwing such comparisons for the sake of sounding politically “clever”. You lot didn’t even have the guts to call-out the likes AWB who even copied the swastika for their badges. But wait, you are the AWB.

I don’t like Malema but this is taking things too far. Malema is NOT a sociopath murderer. It’s disrespectful actually.
