"The cause of communism is the greatest cause in the history of mankind!"
"At the end of the day … violence was the only weapon that would destroy apartheid."
~ Nelson Mandela, 1959 (he never renounced violence)
The globalist, progressive propaganda campaign deifying South Africa's Marxist revolutionary and former President Nelson Mandela should be galling and disgusting to all people of goodwill who love truth, real history and hate lies.
Here's the truth about Mandela: On Jan. 31, 1985, the state president of South Africa, P.W. Botha, speaking in parliament, offered Mandela his freedom on one condition: that he "unconditionally reject violence as a political weapon." This offer of freedom was repeatedly made to Mandela during his 27 years in prison at Robben Island where all of his co-conspirators rejected political violence and were eventually set free. Mandela, the so-called "man of peace," repeatedly rejected all offers of freedom. Why? Because unlike the phony, global adulation of this man, Mandela and the ANC were brutal murderers of children and innocent civilians. Just look at who attended his funeral celebration earlier this week – a veritable rogue's gallery of every tyrannical communist, Islamic and Marxist dictator on the planet, with the socialist Obama leading this pack of wolves. Indeed, birds of a feather do flock together.
According to the original 1963 and 1964 indictments of the Rivonia Trial: The State v. Nelson Mandela et al, Supreme Court of South Africa, Transvaal Provincial Division, Mandela was not charged for being a political dissident but for four acts of TERRORISM. Specifically, he was originally incarcerated for involvement in 23 different acts of sabotage, conspiracy to overthrow the government and treason. He and his fellow terrorist conspirators of the ANC and the South African Communist Party (SACP) were caught by the police while in the possession of 48,000 Soviet-made anti-personnel mines and 210,000 hand grenades! Mandela lied when he confessed that the ANC only adopted violence as a means of protest "when other forms of resistance were no longer open to us."
Mandela was inspired by Fidel Castro's 26th of July Movement in the Cuban Revolution. In 1961 Mandela co-founded Umkhonto we Sizwe ("Spear of the Nation", abbreviated MK) with Sisulu and Joe Slovo, a notorious communist. Mandela became chairman of the militant group while embracing ideas from communist literature on guerrilla warfare by Mao and Che Guevara. Soon after ANC leader Luthuli was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, MK publicly announced its existence with 57 bombings on Dingane's Day, Dec. 16, 1961, followed by further attacks on New Year's Eve.
Politically, Mandela was a democratic socialist and a Marxist who was openly opposed to capitalism, private land ownership and the power of big money. Influenced by Marxism, during the revolution Mandela advocated scientific socialism, although he denied being a communist during the treason trial. Historically, it has been proven Mandela had been a communist since the 1950s. Despite his Marxist politics, Mandela nationalized nothing during his presidency, fearing that this would scare away foreign investors. This decision was in part influenced by the fall of the socialist states in the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc during the early 1990s.
Had Mandela since changed his tune in any way since being freed from prison in Feb. 11, 1990? Absolutely not. Leaving Victor Verster Prison on Feb. 11, 1990, Mandela held wife Winnie's hand in front of amassed crowds and press; the event was broadcast live across the world. Driven to Cape Town's City Hall through crowds, he gave a speech declaring his commitment to peace and reconciliation with the white minority, but made it clear that the ANC's armed struggle was not over, and would continue as "a purely defensive action against the violence of apartheid."
Today it is hard for even the most fanatical Mandela apologist to ignore the increasingly definitive evidence of his key role in the international communist conspiracy which has been filtering out for decades. Thirty years ago stalwart, conservative leaders like President Ronald Reagan, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul II all spoke out against Mandela and his communist, terrorist tactics in fighting apartheid.
The New American recently reported evidence exposed by British historian Stephen Ellis revealing Mandela's repeated denials of Communist Party participation as a fraud, while using communist disinformation tactics to downplay the consequences of those evil associations. Ellis' current research, based on ANC Party minutes and more, established not only that the ANC leader was a member of the South African Communist Party (SACP), but also that he was indeed a senior official working with the party's Central Committee throughout his 27-year prison term.
Despite numerous articles by The New American, which has comprehensively documented over a period of decades Mandela's communist and terrorist atrocities against innocent civilians, Western governments and power brokers, together with the world's most cold-blooded communist dictators, all worked together in creating "Mandela the Man of Peace" myth, bringing him to power in May 1994. Yet, socialists cannot ignore the irrefutable truth exposed that Mandela was a socialist and Marxist, even as South Africa continues its 20-year descent into perpetual chaos, genocide and existential poverty – South African cities like Durban, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Johannesburg currently number as the murder, HIV/AIDS and child-rape capitals of the world.
Although Democratic Socialists love Machiavellian tactics, Machiavelli was dead wrong – the end does not, and will never, justify the means, despite the excessive adulation and crocodile tears communists and Mandela apologists may express. Mandela is neither remarkable nor unique. He is a classical Soviet-backed, Soviet-trained Marxist leader and an admitted terrorist in the mode of Cuba's Fidel Castro, Ghana's Kwame Nkrumah, Congo's Patrice Lumumba and Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, yet tragically Mandela's bombing campaigns against innocent civilians from the 1940-90s have faded from memory due to the existential Cult of Mandela.
Political science professor Dr. R.J. Rummel has written that in the 20th century alone communism (including Marxism, Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism, socialism) was responsible for the evil genocide (democide) of over 260 million people.
I, for one, will not join the world in this hypocritical, sycophantic mourning of the death of Mandela the Marxist. Instead shed a tear for some of Mandela's victims – who were principally South African blacks accused of being against the communist coup of South Africa. Don't shed a tear for Mandela, but shed a tear for hundreds of millions of victims of communism all over the world. They have been virtually forgotten from history, but everyone who loves the truth, justice and righteousness has a duty to promise that these victims are never forgotten, and that history does not repeat itself.
