The death of Nelson Mandela has predictably sparked off a turbocharged outpouring of expressions of grief in the Left/Liberal Media, led naturally by the BBC, the mouthpiece of left-liberal opinion in Britain.
The Left and Left/Liberals love Mandela because, they think, his story encapsulates their view of the world: a world of the racially naturally equal where those races at the bottom of a socio-economic heap are there purely because of ’racism’ and ‘oppression’.
South Africa was the epitome of the Marxist definition of ‘racism’: Power plus prejudice. Mandela was a black man and a Marxist who struggled against its white minority regime. Ergo, he was good and the regime he struggled against was intrinsically evil.
Never mind that it was the whites who created South Africa while the blacks merely took advantage of this creation, as they are now doing in other European societies. Never mind that the whites wanted to hang on to power because they thought, correctly, that black majority rule would mean the beginning of the end of South Africa as a civilised place for them to live. What else was and is to be expected of a population of low education – something the white population of South Africa was and is well aware of while bien-pensant liberals thousands of miles away are not?
Mandela has been endowed with virtual sainthood by Western leftism and left-liberalism. However, it is too often forgotten that his 27 years of imprisonment, which are largely responsible for his aura of martyrdom, were largely self-imposed because he refused to give up violence in pursuit of his aims.
Davis Cameron said that what one noticed when one met him was his ‘compassion’ and that he was a hero for the whole world and for all time. However, Mandela showed little compassion as head of the terrorist wing of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence which killed or maimed many innocent people. These included arranging terrorist incidents such as the planting of bombs at Johannesburg railway station. Other incidents ‘signed off’ by Mandela were:
-Church Street West, Pretoria, on the 20 May 1983
-Amanzimtoti Shopping complex KZN, 23 December 1985
-Krugersdorp Magistrate’s Court, 17 March 1988
-Durban Pick ‘n Pay shopping complex, 1 September 1986
-Pretoria Sterland movie complex 16 April 1988 – limpet mine killed ANC terrorist M O Maponya instead
-Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court, 20 May 1987
-Roodepoort Standard Bank 3 June, 1988
But hey! It’s only whites who were killed and maimed. So that’s alright then.
The Left/Liberals get Mandela very wrong. His dalliance with Marxism was merely a vehicle for his real aims; the destruction of white rule and the imposition of the rule of his own, black people. He said at the Rivonia trial that he had fought against white domination and black domination (well, he would, wouldn’t he), but does any realistic person truly believe that he would have spent his life fighting for majority rule in South Africa if it had meant white and not black majority rule?
Or if it had not been obvious that in the nature of things, black majority rule would mean black domination of whites? It is because majorities do dominate willy nilly, regardless of imposed ideology, that white leftists and liberals want to destroy the white nature of Britain and the West.
In truth, notwithstanding his methods, Mandela was a hero, not of multiculturalism and multiracialism as left-liberals believe, but of ethnic nationalism. As he said at the trial: ‘I have dedicated my life to this struggle of the African People’. He fought for his own people, and that is something we white nationalists can admire and emulate.
The idea of Apartheid or separate development was not in itself unjust. Ethnicities the world over want to rule themselves, just as they did in South Africa. It failed and made a hero of Mandela because the South African whites were unrealistic about what they could keep for themselves and how they could do it. As it slides into Third World barbarism, as they knew it would, they and the country they created are now paying a heavy price for their mistakes.
