Nelson Mandela: Man of Peace or Terrorist Commie?

Dec 08, 2013

"The minutes from the 1982 SACP meeting (South African Communist Party), said Prof Ellis, offered more reliable proof [that Nelson Mandela was a member]. 'This is written in a closed party meeting so nobody is trying to impress or mislead the public,'" he said."

"Worse yet, the ends in both cases (Mandela's and Obama's) are:  terror, slavery, and the brutality of state collectivism, and so the Marxist ends are just as bad as the terrorist means."

Johannesburg, South Africa -- While the world heaps praises and weeps for the recent passing of Nelson Mandela, former leader of the revolt against South African apartheid, reporters Colin Freeman and Jane Flanagan for the British newspaper The Telegraph, reveal that:

"...research by a British historian, Professor Stephen Ellis, has unearthed fresh evidence that during his early years as an activist, Mr. Mandela did hold senior rank in the South African Communist Party, or SACP.  He says Mr. Mandela joined the SACP to enlist the help of the Communist superpowers for the ANC's campaign of armed resistance to white rule.  His book also provides fresh detail on how the ANC's military wing had bomb-making lessons from the IRA, and intelligence training from the East German Stasi, which it used to carry out brutal interrogations of suspected "spies" at secret prison camps.  The former South African president, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, has always denied being a member of the South African branch of the movement, which mounted an armed campaign of guerrilla resistance along with the ANC.  As evidence of Mr. Mandela's Communist party membership, Prof Ellis cites minutes from a secret 1982 SACP meeting, discovered in a collection of private papers at the University of Cape Town, in which a veteran former party member, the late John Pule Motshabi, talks about how Mr. Mandela was a party member some two decades before.

"In the minutes, Mr. Motshabi, is quoted as saying: 'There was an accusation that we opposed allowing Nelson [Mandela] and Walter (Sisulu, a fellow activist) into the Family (a code word for the party) ... we were not informed because this was arising after the 1950 campaigns (a series of street protests). The recruitment of the two came after.'  While other SACP members have previously confirmed Mr. Mandela's party membership, many of their testimonies were given under duress in police interviews, where they might have sought to implicate him. However, the minutes from the 1982 SACP meeting, said Prof Ellis, offered more reliable proof. 'This is written in a closed party meeting so nobody is trying to impress or mislead the public,'" he said.

So how are we to judge Nelson Mandela: a man of peace or a terrorist commie?

He fought against racial segregation in South Africa but enlisted the aid of Soviet Communists and IRA bomb makers to kill innocent people.  He associated with the terrorist organization ANC, the African National Congress -- which was officially listed as a terrorist group by the US Government during the Cold War of the1950's and 60's.  Both white and black innocent citizens were bombed, interrogated and tortured to death by Nelson Mandela's communist party.

It is rather hypocritical to only look at Mr. Mandela's peaceful actions against apartheid and dismiss the truth of his communist and terrorist actions, including the killing of thousands of innocent people.  This is reminiscent of our own President Barack Obama's close association with the terrorist group The Weather Underground whose leaders Bill Ayres and his wife Bernardine Dohrn were convicted of blowing up an American police station, other sites and buildings, and killing several people during their terrorist spree in the 1960's and 1970's.

The Weathermen grew out of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). It took its name from the lyric "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows", from the Bob Dylan song "Subterranean Homesick Blues."  "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows" was the title of a position paper they distributed at an SDS convention in Chicago on June 18, 1969. This founding document called for a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other radical movements to achieve "the destruction of 'US imperialism' and achieve a classless world:  world communism."

Does anybody notice a social-political-economic trend here, by Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama?  Both men's moral philosophy leads to the horrors of state collectivism.

Nelson Mandela used the terrorism of his communist party against innocent people -- black and white -- to fight against racial segregation and implement Marxism.  For this, he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.  Barack Obama is using Marxist terrorism in the US today to fight for a one-world state collectivist government modeled after the teachings of Karl Marx.  For this, Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

Like Nelson Mandela, Barack's other close associations include state collectivist activists and terrorists such as Rev. Jeremiah Wright who screamed, "Not God Bless America... but God damn America," Louis Farrakhan of the fanatical Nation of Islam, and, more importantly for today, Obama's obvious supportive association with the Middle East's Muslim Brotherhood which includes Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other fanatical Muslim groups who are hell bent on a jihad against the "Great Satan," America, the "Little Satan," Israel, plus all Christians, Jews, Gays, Women, and everybody else they call "Infidels."

What is the Take Home Lesson of all of this?

What kind of moral philosophy allows one to play the role of a terrorist dictator either directly (Nelson Mandela) or indirectly (Barack Obama), be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, and pretend that their Marxist ends justify their terrorist means?  Answer:  State collectivism, whether it's fascism, socialism, or communism.

Worse yet, the ends in both cases (Mandela's and Obama's) are:  terror, slavery, and the brutality of state collectivism, and so the Marxist ends are just as bad as the terrorist means.

Contrast this with the actions of the American Founding Fathers who fought for independence from state collectivist Britain and dictator King George in 1776.  Unlike Mandela's and Barack Obama's wars against innocent citizens, the focus of the American Revolution for Independence in the 1700s was not bombing American colonists or blowing up people and buildings in London.  The goal of America's Founding Fathers was not to implement socialism in the Colonies.  Their goal was to implement the moral philosophy embedded in our Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Federalist Papers.  Namely, they were fighting for the moral philosophy of (1) individual freedom as an inherent right, (2) private property rights to one's own mind, body, and the fruits of their labor, and (3) freedoms which all individuals obtain from Nature or "God," not from a Marxist, socialist, or communist state.  The Founding Fathers did not consider the American people as a collective who they needed to terrorize, bomb and enslave by looting and then redistributing the fruits of their labor.  And they were not fighting for a Democratic Majority Rule form of government, which always turns out to be the "tyranny of the majority."  The Founding Fathers fought to create a limited republic with the government's sole function as protector of every individual's inherent rights, not as a Marxist redistribution broker to distribute the fruits of everybody's labors.  Unlike Mandela and Obama, the Founders understood that freedom does not mean a mandated Marxist welfare state; it means the freedom to voluntarily exchange in a free and open market with the government acting as protector of inherent rights via a police, military, and objective judicial system.  America was founded upon a moral philosophy of individual rights, which is exactly the opposite of the state collectivist immoral philosophy of both Mandela and Obama. 

The moral philosophy of both the means and ends by Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama are not inherent individual rights and freedoms but rather the slavery of state collectivism.  Witness Obamacare and the other destructive policies being perpetrated upon US citizens today through Obama's illegal Executive Orders and outright disdain for current legislation passed by Congress.  Mandela's legacy for today is that tens of thousands of innocent men, women, and children -- both black and white -- have died and are still dying -- in his ongoing war (even after his death) to implement Marxist socialism in South Africa.  The bankrupt moral philosophy of Mandela and Obama is cut from the same socialist cloth.

Remember this as you listen to the bankrupt moral philosophy of the majority news media today as they heap praise at the funeral of a man who was nothing but a criminal terrorist running his South African Communist Party from inside his jail cell and "signing off" on dozens of bombings of innocent men, women, and children throughout South Africa.

There was a reason why Britain's Margaret Thatcher and US President Ronald Reagan put Nelson Mandela and his communist ANC on the world wide terrorist list until George Bush de-listed Mandela's travel restrictions in 2008:  the guy was not a man of peace; he was just another terrorist commie.  And Barack Obama is well on his way to following in Nelson Mandela's footprints.
