A secular saint has just died as his family fought a bitter public battle over his money and his graveyard. Nelson Mandela turned his toes skyward this week and went to his reward. No doubt the main stream media’s love affair with him will be accelerated now that he has assumed room temperature. Many will cringe at my caviler attitude about his death and while I would not actually rejoice in anyone’s death (since it is so permanent) I am grateful when nature does the human race a favor. Very few in the media are willing to tell the truth about this very soiled secular “saint.”
The gushing has already started from the non-thinking, non-principled international media who are very careless with the facts that are known by all informed South Africans. Mandela has been called, a “prisoner of conscience,” “miracle worker,” father of democracy,” “icon,” “one of the greatest men of the 20th century,” “statesman,” “regal,” and “freedom fighter.” Obama called him the “hero of the world” and compared him to George Washington! Of course, Obama is wrong more often than he is right. One journalist admitted Nelson’s “ordinary weaknesses” but concluded that those weaknesses made him “all the more remarkable”! Hand me a barf bag.
Almost all the articles I read about Mandela refer to him as a “political prisoner” or “prisoner of conscience” for 27 years in a quest for racial freedom. No informed, honest journalist would write such a farce. For the record, let me clearly declare that Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison because he was a saboteur (which he admitted at his trial) and espionage agent working against his government.
He was not imprisoned because he fought for freedom but because he was involved in 23 different acts of sabotage and conspiring to overthrow the government. He should have been executed, but a soft court went wobbly at his 1963 trial. It is said by his worshippers that he experienced “inhumane incarceration,” yet his Red buddies of the banned and Communist controlled African National Congress (ANC) and the South African Communist Party (SACP) were charged with 193 acts of sabotage! What should saboteurs expect? They were charged with the preparation and manufacture of explosives, according to evidence submitted, including 210,000 hand grenades, 48,000 anti-personnel mines, 1,500 time devices, 144 tons of ammonium nitrate, etc. It is telling that an official in the Carter administration called the ANC, “freedom fighters.” And that was said at a Congressional Hearing!
Mandela always denied being a member of the South Africa Communist Party (SACP) but now the kitty is out of the sack. But then, the kitty was out of the sack when Mandela was arrested with a document in his possession titled, “How to be a Good Communist” written in his own handwriting! It said, in part, “The people of South Africa led by the South African Communist Party will destroy capitalist society and build in its place socialism.” He even characterized himself as a “well-disciplined member of the Communist Party.”
On Dec. 12, 2012, the London Telegraph admitted that yes, Nelson was, in fact, a member of the SACP. In fact, he held “senior rank” in the party! So that reveals Mandela as a liar as well as a Communist. If I had the choice, I would prefer being known as a liar.
Mandela could easily say “no” to apartheid but not to anarchy. He was pretty good (with his leftist buddies writing for him) with speeches, sermons, and slogans but not with solutions that did not include violence. When he became the first black South African President, he did not do much for Blacks, one reason for their dissatisfaction of him in recent years.
It is also interesting to note that in his later prison years Mandela was offered his freedom many times by the white minority government if he would simply renounce the use of terror, but Mandela refused to do this in obedience to the Communist Party. His payoff: President of South Africa. He chose to stay in prison until his release by the white government in February of 1990, thereby becoming a lifetime martyr. What fools! They released a man dedicated to overthrow their own government!
Nelson Mandela was a Black terrorist, but after his release by the hated white regime, he became rather docile and assumed a statesman-like persona. Except when he had seizures of stupidly by praising black tyrants from Angola to Zimbabwe. Mandela never saw a black dictator he didn’t like. That’s true of white American Liberals also!
Nelson believed in the Hug-a-Thug philosophy and he never missed a chance to do so. His most ardent friends were Communists and dictators such as Fidel Castro, Moammar Qaddafi, Yasser Arafat, and Saddam Hussein. They were his hugging buddies. There is truth to Daddy’s statement, “When you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.” Daddy was a philosopher. And Nelson has been scratching all his life. This “advocate for freedom” has always been in bed with Communists and tyrants (who specialized in taking freedom) of all kinds and has used every opportunity to kiss the bad guys and kick the good guys.
But maybe Mandela mellowed during his prison years, and became repentant and resolute in his pursuit of freedom. No, afraid not. He traveled around the world with his bag of goldbricks slung across his shoulder to peddle to gushing hero worshippers. He visited Cuba in 1991 and said, “Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”
Hopefully, Castro’s toes will turn skyward soon and he will join his comrade so they can both get what they deserve.

Fact, Fraud or Faith?

Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
