Today, Julius [kill the whites!] Malema had a press conference. His comments to a BBC journalist, telling him that he’s a bastard and a bloody agent and telling him to get out – he even called security -- have taken the country by storm. The incident is also lighting up the blogs and Facebook sites.

Have a look at the Anti-Malema page below and see what people have been saying in the notes and also the wall. (hat tip Josh for links)
Of course, the media should have walked out on little Hitler.
Here's the report from news 24:
Johannesburg - A journalist at an ANC Youth League media briefing was called a "bastard" and an "agent" by its president Julius Malema on Thursday.
The media briefing was on the Youth League's visit to Zimbabwe.
Malema was criticising the Movement for Democratic Change for speaking out against the visit from its office in Sandton, when BBC journalist Jonah Fisher mentioned that the youth league leader lived in Sandton.
An angry Malema retorted: "Here you behave or else you jump. Don't come here with that white tendency, go out bastard, bloody agent."
Explaining the outburst later, Malema said the youth league and its leadership could not be undermined "in our own terrain".
"This is not a playground. This is not a beerhall. Don't abuse us in our own space, in our own house... this is my house," he said, referring to ANC headquarters, Chief Albert Luthuli House.
Land reform policy 'courageous'
Malema recently returned from a trip to Zimbabwe to study the effects of "nationalisation" in that country.
Malema hailed Zimbabwe's land reform policy as "courageous and militant".
Malema is famous for his song "kill the farmers." Atlas reader and South African Josh reports that Malema has said that he will not sing the “kill the boer farmer” part of the song inside the country – his followers have said the same. BUT he has said that he will sing the song in its entirety outside of the country’s borders. So in essence, he is blatantly ignoring the ruling party. It is pretty clear that the ANC (ruling party) is supporting him, because they’ve done nothing to silence him, except for “having a talk with him.” There is now confusion as to whether the ANC Secretary-General and the Jacob Zuma, the president, actually did talk with him. Reports are conflicting. People on sites have threatened assassination and I would not be surprised if there were a few attempts in the next few weeks.
