Mandela – Mass Murderer Transformed into Saint by Media.

South Africa











Much of the world is concerned about Nelson Mandela’s health as the 94-year-old spends a fourth day in hospital.

This concern is the net result of one of the greatest propaganda successes ever foisted on a gullible public in the West by the left-wing media.

To any thinking person with even the most poorly developed powers of discernment, the falsity of the Mandela myth should be immediately apparent.

Lets look at the facts:

Mandela was imprisoned for conspiring and supporting acts of terrorism, mainly the blowing up of infrastructure (power lines) plotting to place bombs in public places (railway stations etc.) and stockpiling explosives and weapons to carry out terrorist attacks.

He was not imprisoned for opposing the South African Government.

Had he been convicted of the same crimes in the USA, he would almost certainly have received the death sentence, in Canada or Europe, a life sentence in prison where he would probably have died years ago.

Approximately double the number of violent deaths have occurred in the 13 years since 1994 when Mandela was released from prison as occurred in the 46 years under White rule from 1948. Source Truth About South Africa  (warning article contains gruesome images of necklace victims)

As many as an estimated 5000 of those deaths were murders committed by Mandela’s ANC on Black South Africans of the Zulu people by the “necklace” method. A gasoline soaked tyre set on fire around a victim’s neck while he or she was alive.

Mandela’s wife at the time, the murderous Winnie, proudly shook her box of matches on national TV proclaiming “If we cannot win with the ballot box, we will win with the matchbox”

Add to those around 1000 White farmers murdered each year, many politically motivated in a strategy to drive farmers off their lands, impoverish farm workers and intimidate rural voters.

Despite the European settlers of North America and Australia having decimated their indigenous populations by introducing western diseases, alcohol, guns, residential schools and then swamping them with massive waves of immigration, liberals in those countries had the audacity to condemn South Africa and support the communist inspired and armed terrorists actively trying to take over the country.

If White South Africans were so bad, why has the indigenous population in that country increased over 30 times since the arrival of the first European? Yet in North America, it’s size has not increased and possibly decreased after being “settled”. In Australia a similar situation.

Well meaning but naive liberals shout about apartheid without any idea of what the real situation in Southern Africa was. How could you deny people the vote on grounds of colour they ask self-righteously.

Firstly there were aspects of the South African system that, with the benefit of hindsight, were wrong and can now be recognised as such. Just as here in North America, condemnation of slavery is universal, no thinking person can understand why, a hundred years ago, women were denied the vote and child abuse is now seen as the evil it is. All those awful practices were considered normal by a large part of the population in previous generations.

There were other aspects that were ridiculous and were slowly being eroded by common sense, education and pure demographics.

The key issue though is that in North America and Australia, the massive waves of European immigration in the 18th to early 20th centuries quickly reduced the indigenous people to powerless minorities.

In Canada today, for example, a recent report indicated that the indigenous population stands at 1.4 million, 4.3% of the total. (Wikipedia) When a segment of the population is that small, it would not matter if it had 2 votes for every man woman and child, it could not materially affect the course of history.

In pre 1994 South Africa, a population of around 4 million Whites, 2 million Indian and Asian and perhaps another 1 to 1.5 million Black people with equivalent incomes supported a total population of 40 million.

With the best will in the world, it is not possible for such a small economic base to finance equal education, health and housing services for a large unproductive sector.

That is why Black schools were not all as good as White or Asian, why government hospitals for the masses were inferior to private ones for those with sufficient income to pay for their services. Why Black people migrating from rural, tribal areas could not afford Western type housing in the cities and instead created squatter camps.

It is a testament to the resilience of the South African economy and the efforts of its economically active minority that they were able to finance services for the majority of the population at all, even if those services were judged inferior.

It is interesting to note that despite claims that all Canadians have equal access to education and health services, there is ample evidence to indicate that the reality in the tribal areas, is somewhat different.

For those who still believe Mandela is an icon for peace, remember that his ANC terrorists murdered many veterans of the two great wars and their dependants, service men and women who fought and died shoulder to shoulder with Canadians, Americans, Australians and other Allied soldiers.

Politics always trumps loyalty, sadly the South Africans, just like the Rhodesians 2 decades earlier, were sacrificed by their former allies on the altar of appeasement and expediency.

Mandela is a mass murderer, terrorist and war criminal from the same mould as Pol Pot, Idi Amin and many others before them, he has escaped his rightful place before the International Court in The Hague. He is not going to get his just punishment in this world, perhaps he will in the next.

Did Society Fail The Boston Bombers?








Did society “fail” the Boston bombers, or did the Boston bombers fail society?

Enough has already been published, said, tweeted, updated or videoed about the Boston Marathon bombing and subsequent events to cause a peak in energy consumption or a newsprint shortage if it had happened a few decades ago.

I am not going to add to it directly, but a comment by a colleague at a social function this week got me thinking.

He was expressing compassion for the victims and all those affected by the bombing and believed that we should also show compassion for the bombers because “society had failed them.”

I disagree, compassion yes, failure no. If any group failed them, it was the Islamists, Jihadists, fundamental or otherwise who recruited and subverted them. Of course they would see the event as a success not a failure.

It is the sign of a good and caring person to show compassion for a murderer as well as his victims, but to blame a violent act of terrorism on society’s failure ignores the fact that people are responsible for the consequences of their actions.

Millions of people come to North America and other developed countries to escape poverty, misery, oppression and brutality in their homelands. The vast majority come because of the better conditions and opportunities, not to replicate the appalling conditions they have fled. Most are law-abiding, hard-working people eternally grateful for a chance at a better life. Some take advantage of loopholes in our welfare system to get a free ride, a small minority become criminals. An even smaller group become terrorists with the intention of furthering their religious or political causes.

I am also a recent immigrant and I have a personal axe to grind in that through both direct hostile action and deliberate inaction, the Western powers forced a terrorist government on my peaceful, economically successful country, Rhodesia. The murder of my father, crippling injuries to my mother and later, illegal theft of my farm are all results of that interference.

To add insult to injury, the same countries pressurised my new country, South Africa, to surrender to another brutal, corrupt, terrorist organisation, the ANC. The disaster in that country is still unfolding.

Despite all that, I am grateful for the safety and opportunities to rebuild my life in Canada. I have chosen to live here and must abide by the laws and customs. I have chosen to fight against policies I dislike and call for change by becoming a citizen, using my privilege of voting for a political party with policies I can support. (a difficult task)

I have those options, if my dislike of the country becomes intolerable, I am free to leave.

Like most reasonable people, I will not manufacture bombs out of pressure cookers, kill innocent bystanders at sporting events and create mayhem in a society that has offered me refuge from a far worse place.

No, I do not believe our society failed the Boston Bombers or any other home-grown terrorists. If any group failed them, it was the fanatics who recruited them. But of course they would see the outcome as a success not a failure. The death of one and capture of the other as justifiable sacrifices in their campaign to return the world to the dark ages.

The two brothers had a choice, if they did not like America, they were free to return to Chechnya, Dagestan or whichever den of Islamic fundamentalism they chose.

It is irritatingly common in our politically correct society to find someone, some group, some event or some external influence to blame for bad behaviour and its consequences.

Bad things do happen to good people, accidents happen. We have a choice, do we accept victim status , use them as an excuse for anti-social, destructive or murderous behaviour? Or do we get on with our lives and use them to demonstrate that we have the resilience to overcome adversity and build better, purposeful lives?

From living most of my life in the third world, I understand why billions of people believe that power is everything, compassion seen as weakness. This is why democracy is having such a difficult time taking root in Africa and elsewhere in societies that have been collections of feudal, tribal chiefdoms for thousands of years.

If the West has failed any immigrants, it has failed them by being too tolerant of attempts to subvert the norms of society to those of the countries from whence they came. “Multiculturalism” is one of the glaring failures, the word itself is an oxymoron.

Just as I must conform to the standards of my new country and abide by its laws, so must every other newcomer from whichever origin. No exceptions, if I or they cannot, then we must leave, not plant bombs in cities.

Ethnic shops and restaurants, areas with a majority of one ethnic origin are one thing. Changing employment rules, tolerating elements of foreign laws, making excuses for the abuse of women and instituting different dress codes for some people something entirely different.

There is a simple solution, conform or leave, no pandering to any immigrant minority groups, settle in Canada and you are Canadian, live permanently in America, American. People can hold on to and celebrate their ethnic, religious or national beliefs. But in any matters that affect other people, laws and established customs, there can be no tolerance for anti-social or worse, behaviour.

That is why I cannot accept that society failed the Boston bombers, the blame lies elsewhere.

What do you think? Leave a comment.

Wishing you success.
