Greenfield: “The man who preached a utopian creed with a violent edge proved to be a pragmatist.”

Gårsdagens store mindehøjtidelighed for Nelson Mandela, blev en pinlig affære for præsident Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, ANC-lederen der i lighed med Mandela har en fortid i ANC’s militære gren ‘Nationens spyd’ og Det Sydafrikanske Kommunistparti (SACP).

Yderst velskrevet artikel af Daniel Greenfield set på Frontpage Mag – The Mandela Myth.

“White liberals are obsessed with Nelson Mandela everywhere outside South Africa. … To Western whites, Mandela is an iconic figure, a latter-day Gandhi, but to South Africans of all races his memory is entangled with the corrupt infrastructure of the African National Congress and its leaders. …

Like Gandhi, Mandela is a more controversial figure inside South Africa than he is outside it. But to many he isn’t even that. In a country torn apart by disease, poverty and crime; he appears far less relevant than he does in Washington or Brussels. Few South Africans want inspiration. Instead they want results.

After leaving office, Mandela blasted his own African National Congress accusing it of being ‘as corrupt as the Apartheid regime’ and warning that, ‘Some Africans have made mistakes. They now throw their weight about as a majority. There are some Africans who inspire fear in the minorities.’

That began a process that would allow Mandela to detach his reputation from the corrupt sinkhole of the African National Congress. But it is another of the Mandela myths that the ANC became corrupt only after his tenure. The African National Congress was always corrupt. The only difference is that it has become more flamboyantly corrupt now that it has a majority that will always vote for it.

South Africa is for all intents and purposes a one-party state. And it was Mandela who blasted opposition Democratic Party voters as white racists who ‘would one day die with a heavy conscience.’ What other outcome of that could there have been except a one-party state and what outcome of a one-party state could there be except the total corruption that we see in South Africa today?

As a Communist, Mandela had always envisioned a one-party state.

‘Under a Communist Party Government South Africa will become a land of milk and honey. Political, economic and social rights will cease to be enjoyed by Whites only. They will be shared equally by Whites and Non-Whites. There will be enough land and houses for all. There will be no unemployment, starvation and disease,’ Mandela wrote.

Today South Africa has a 26 percent unemployment rate and a 17 percent HIV rate. There is no equality. Instead, like all wealth redistribution schemes, inequality has been spread along with resentment and a pervasive feeling of injustice for everyone.

… much of the white population is thinking about leaving. Nearly a million have already left. And they’re not alone. …

The South Africa that Mandela leaves behind is a land in search of a people. There is no milk and honey. Instead there is a desperate scramble for a way out of the country by every race and creed able to agree only on wanting to leave. Post-Apartheid South Africa is an experiment that Western liberals love to admire, but that nobody seems to want to actually live in.

‘The people of South Africa, led by the S.A.C.P. will destroy capitalist society and build in its place socialism where there will be no exploitation of man by man, and where there will be no rich and poor, no unemployment, starvation, disease and ignorance,’ Mandela wrote.

Today 77 percent of South African households face food insecurity and most teachers are not able to teach students how to read independently. The Communist utopia of universal literacy, plenty and equality has not come and isn’t coming.

To many white liberals, Mandela has taken his place in the pantheon alongside Gandhi and the Dalai Lama as a Third World saint who led a resistance based on forgiveness and acceptance. This need for Third World saints that led to a white cult growing around Gandhi and the Dalai Lama has more to do with the decline of spirituality in the West than with the reality of the three political figures who like most leaders understood the value of symbolism when it came to cloaking their more human agendas.

Mandela was neither a monster nor a saint. Instead he occupied a troubled middle ground which saw him employ terrorism and align with unambiguous monsters like Castro and Gaddafi. The man who preached a utopian creed with a violent edge proved to be a pragmatist. If there is any virtue to take away from his life, it is that when push came to shove, he chose pragmatism over ideology.”

  1. Ja, 27 års fængsel har nok en beroligende virkning på de fleste.

  2. Brev frav David Cameron, 10 Downing St, London til Barack Obama, The White House, Washington.

    “Kære Barack! Det var hyggeligt at se dig igen din gamle sortseer.
    Jeg skriver til dig fordi min kone bliver ved med at plage mig om hende blondinen du ved, hende der altid dukker op, når vi er sammen.
    Hende der konstant vil fotograferes sammen med os.

    Jeg har prøvet at forklare min kone, at blondinen er en af dine venner fra Island eller Grønland, men hun tror mig ikke. Min kone påstår at blondinen er tilknyttet et eller andet escort-bureau i Bruxelles og at det udelukkende er på grund af hende, at jeg ikke for længst har trukket Storbritanien ud af EU.

    Kunne du ikke lade dine vakse frenge fra CIA kigge lidt på sagen.

    De bedste hilsener fra David Cameron”

    “PS, hvis der dukker nogle interessante billeder op du ved, kunne du så ikke lige sende dem til mig sådan lidt diskret?”

  5. “Alle de kommunistiske stater er endt med elendighed og brutale undertrykkelser. En af de mest kendte demagoger, der repræsenterer det var ved magten i løbet af det 20. århundrede. For eksempel Joseph Stalin i Sovjetunionen, Mao Zedong i Kina, Pol Pot i Cambodia og Fidel Castro i Cuba. Den igangværende Røde Holocaust hvori over 94 millioner er blevet forskelligt udryddet gennem kunstig klasse-baseret mord, hungersnød og ideologisk udrensning – er den største forbrydelse i annalerne om verdenshistorien. På trods af dette, er det på nuværende tidspunkt heltene, (der bekæmpede den røde fare) der regelmæssigt er dæmoniserede i det styrede medie, af håndplukkede politikere og af røde professorer i universiteterne.”
