Qalakaliboli Dlamini, the Swaziland Times Sunday writer at the centre of a gay hate speech storm, has also attacked Jews in his articles.
Dlamini, who writes each week for the paper, has written in his column for the Times Sunday that the Jews organised to take over the banking system of America, ‘and they would determine the direction America took by making American presidents their puppets’.
He wrote that in the 1920s, ‘The [US] Federal bank was to be handed over as collateral or security for a loan the Jews were going to pump into the American economy.’
In the article, published by the Times Sunday on 11 September 2011, he wrote, ‘American children would be held accountable for all monies the mother nation owed to the Jewish bankers, who had given themselves the name New World Order (NWO)’.
The NWO is a discredited conspiracy theory propagated over the years by anti-Semites. In his article, Dlamini claimed that a particular Jewish family ‘the Bilderberg group’ leads the NWO and he quoted David Rockefeller saying, ‘It is an international government that put in place international media gurus to promote its propaganda.’
This was not the first time Dlamini attacked Jews. On 3 July 2011, he wrote that Jews ‘owned 50 percent of the US’.
He said, ‘The Jews lent money to the US government and the repayment security was the people of the US.’
He went on. ‘The Social Security Act of 1936 sought to ensure that every citizen of the US was bound to pay taxes to the Federal Reserve Bank that had been taken over by the Jewish bankers.’
He said, ‘the policies of the US government and the US president are controlled by the Bilderburgs.’
In the same article, he wrote, ‘I just write the truth and tell it as it is.’
Dlamini has been in the centre of a storm after he proclaimed himself to be ‘homophobic’ in the Times Sunday last week (13 May 2012). He wrote, ‘I hate homosexuality with every fibre of hair or flesh in my body.’ He said homosexuals performed ‘satanic deeds’ and were an ‘abomination’.
This led to criticism from readers, an official complaint to the Times of Swaziland newspaper group ombudsman, that Dlamini had broken the National Association of Journalists code of ethical conduct and a call from the Swaziland Coalition of Concerned Civic Organisations that action should be taken against Dlamini.
