Eusebius McKaiser: Should people with 'bile' views be ignored or entertained?

Following the comments made by Afriforum's CEO Kallie Kriel on Monday on the Eusebius Mckaiser Show, many people have been debating whether people with different views should be given airtime.

McKaiser engaged callers on the open line to find out whether people who hold "bile" views should be ignored or engaged in the hope of educating them.

I don't think they are worth our time. People like Kriel are given too much airtime, maybe it's because they have money they have resources. I think this platform is for shaping society.

Bring them on the show, let them expose themselves. These Afriforum people are biased. Let them expose how racist they are.

What Kallie Kriel expressed yesterday is a view that is held by Afriforum and now what I'm asking myself is; they have been saying Julius Malema is promoting hate speech. What Kallie said yesterday is tantamount to promoting hate speech. You have the likes of Gerrie Nel who are associated with Afriforum, somebody who has served in our justice system; who was held high by many people. I mean what does this tell us about people like him associating with organisations that hold that view.

MJ, caller

Another caller, Sizwe says if more people expressed their views it could help in dealing with the issue of racism in the country.

We live in a democratic state and we are governed by freedom of speech. I think we should have people of his calibre come out and be honest about how racist they are and how they need to be exposed and have the freedom to express their views. You start questioning people like Gerrie Nel this guy was a state prosecutor. You start to question his views on black people he sent to jail. Were they really really based on facts or on racial grounds.
