UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 159 Mr Y I CARRIM: Well, it’s not an attack on me; it’s an attack on the IEC. These are their results, right? So, if the DA dreams about the free market, the EFF dreams about an all-powerful Father Christmas state that will deliver everything and anything to everybody overnight. [Applause.] And let me tell you: It’s not simple Mao suits of the 1960s they want for all; it’s Louis Vuitton red overalls. [Laughter.] [Applause.] “Nationalise,” they say. “Nationalise” and, hey presto, everything gets solved. This is idealism of the worst sort. The EFF claims to be Marxist. Where is the historical materialism? No assessment of the historical juncture, of the concrete economic and political terrain, of the domestic and global balance of forces, of the strength of the state, of the readiness of the working class and its allies for socialism. And where, exactly, is the EFF’s socialist-struggle working-class base? Where is their trade union movement? Where are the workers? Where in the world? When did Lenin and Marx say that the youth would be the revolutionary motive force for socialism? Not Lenin, not Marx and not the other great hero, the great Frantz Fanon, ever said that.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 160 So, why this youth fundamentalism? Everybody beyond Malema’s age is a reject, is a hack. Yet they admire China. What is the average age of members of the central committee or the government of China? [Interjections.] Mr N F SHIVAMBU: Point of order ... Mr Y I CARRIM: The EFF is voluntarism ... The EFF ... [Interjections.] The DEPUTY SPEAKER: What’s your point of order, hon member? Mr N F SHIVAMBU: Can you ask this demoted Member of Parliament to say “Hon Malema”? It is the law here in Parliament. He must respect us. The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Okay. Mr Y I CARRIM: Mr Malema is acceptable; “Mr Malema”. [Interjections.]

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 161 The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Okay. All right. Mr Y I CARRIM: The EFF is voluntarism, with no foundation in materialism. This idealism, this voluntarism is closely linked to its populism, and this populism is closely linked to its militaristic posture. [Interjections.] There is no armed struggle. We are a democracy. They are in Parliament. Why do they have, as their head, a “commander in chief”? [Laughter.] Where is their internal democracy? Who is he commanding ... towards what end? No clarity, right! [Interjections.] [Applause.] He thinks ... [Interjections.] The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order! Order, hon members! Mr Y I CARRIM: He was too young to be in the armed struggle, rightly, but I have no doubt he would have taken part. He thinks that if you fire a rifle in the air at an EFF rally that that makes you a soldier. [Laughter.] And the EFF, let me tell you, is all tactics and no strategy. Normally, your tactics, as we

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
