What a lost prison manuscript reveals
about the real Nelson Mandela

Spectator [UK], by Rian Malan

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/20/2014 6:40:18 AM

This is a story about Nelson Mandela, and it begins on Robben Island in 1974. Prisoner number 466/64 is writing up his life story, working all night and sleeping all day. (Snip) Everyone thought Mandela was a known entity, but he turns out to have led a double life, at least for a time. By day, he was or pretended to be a moderate democrat, fighting to free his people in the name of values all humans held sacred. But by night he donned the cloak and dagger and became a leader of a fanatical sect known for its attachment

Lots of us knew that Mandela´s image was highly polished but because it wasn´t politically correct, we kept silent.

But no more. Obama has released the dogs of war.

No black person can use the race card ever again because white people elected Obama. Twice. White people have propped him up in the media and in the halls of Congress. White people kept silent when they found out he was a totally unqualified affirmative-action hire.

By day, he [Mandela] was or pretended to be a moderate democrat, fighting to free his people in the name of values all humans held sacred. But by night he donned the cloak and dagger and became a leader of a fanatical sect known for its attachment to the totalitarian Soviet ideal.

Sound familiar? With whom is O consorting "by night"? They must be powerful "Soviet" types in order to make such deep inroads into the destruction of the best country on the planet in only five years.

It has been known for years that Mandela was a Communist. Obviously the leftists have embraced that and the lo-fo´s have never heard of him.

Of course Obama has known all of this since he was a young man hanging around the likes of Bill Ayers.
FTA:" ‘I have always resisted such methods,’ he says, but goes on to reason that coercion is acceptable in cases where a dissident minority is blocking a majority. ‘A minority should not be able to frustrate the will of the majority,’ he concludes."
One hears the voice of the Won saying such things- or Harry Reid.

If you take the quote posted by #3, and reverse it, it´s the perfect description of how 0bama´s "signature legislation" was passed by Reid and Pelosi. The majority of the country didn´t want it, but the dissenting minority did.

Substitute zippy´s name for the "sainted, sanitized" mandela and feel the hairs stand up on your neck.

We knew what and who he was. He wasn´t in jail for almost 30 years because he was a choir boy!

Interesting connection to zippy´s staff member who conveniently cleaned up the messy script. What! Ayers wasn´t available?

Obama may love Communists but usually they must be Muslim totalitarian leaders. He may get along with the S.American dictators but the frost between Obama and Putin is not just the Polar Vortex. Putin sees right through the façade and clearly has no patience and no tolerance for girly men and Obama with his bike helmet, mom jeans and fake macho, jock image repulses all of us.

I´m in total agreement with posters here in being against the assessment of Mandela being a saint or a martyr. I´m also totally against any attempt to compare Obama to Mandela, especially to burnish the floundering legacy of this fake president.

One major difference between Obama and Mandela is courage. Nelson had the (misguided?) courage to put himself in jeopardy to achieve his goals -- Barack has been a coward ever since he traded in his diaper for a pair of trousers.

Obama´s entire lying life has been spent behind a skirt. First, his mother, then his grandmother, then Michelle, then Valerie Jarrett, and now Hillary Clinton. There has been a few gaps and some overlaps along the way, but essentially he has never made a decision or lived with its consequence his entire life. Once he even invented a fake woman when no other skirt was available.

The "transparency" promised by this AA charlatan, amounts to all of us, from world leaders to Joe the plumber, being able to see right through him and witness clearly the disaster he is trying desperately to hide.

Apparently, Michelle, who was bought (by Rev. Jeremiah Wright) and paid for (by we tax payers) has grown tired of this charade -- notwithstanding the multimillions of dollars spent on the perks of purchase this arrangement has made necessary.

Disgusting! His castle on the sand needs to be swept away by the incoming tide.

Zippy is still the front man, so he has to avoid violence. But don´t say there hasn´t been violence because the fellow travelers´ favorite tool. Think of the black man selling "Don´t tread on me flags" at a Tea Party rally near St Louis. Or the thugs who have beaten down non-blacks for Trayvon. Think of the OWS violence.

What separates Obama from Mandela is that Obama no longer thinks he needs to totally hide his ideology.

Almost another Che. But hey Obama & the Left love him because they know the truth has been trumped by the peace lover myth. As early as 1953 Mandela was looking for armaments from Red China. FTA:
‘I was bitter and felt ever more strongly that SA whites need another Isandlwana,’ he explains. Driving around the country, Mandela constantly imagines rural landscapes as battlefields and cities as places where one day soon ‘the sweet air will smell of gunfire, elegant buildings will crash down and streets will be splashed with blood’. These vivid quotes did not make it into the bestseller.

This UK Spectator article by RIAN MALAN, revealing authentic details of Mandela´s true Communist life, found in his original prison manuscript
(http://specc.ie/longwalkms), serves as a brilliant connecting link of Communism to our fanatic Communist driven "leaders" in Washington, and not shockingly, even takes us all the way to the Mandela film in tightly controlled, Communist dominated, Hollywood!
This one excerpted sentence most clearly defines it all:
"It is the Communist vanguard, imbued with higher wisdoms of dialectical materialism (look it up!)".
This "vanguard" controls Washington, the press-media, most of academe and every foot of film coming out of Hollywood. A sickening reality, not because there are stealth communists seemingly everywhere, but that there are so few of the truly intelligent that realize it.

Starting with Rush Limbaugh, Bill O´Reilly, Sean Hannity and too many others, who continue the charade of calling all these Communists the good names of "liberal" and "progressive", little wonder the Communists gain so much ground.

Except for a rare article, such as this revelation of the dark Mandela, none of the truth tellers have the guts and outright honesty to call most democrats and RINOS what they actually ARE !

They won´t even deride them as pinkos, reds, commies,
fellow travelers, totalitarians, statists, collectivists.

They are all afraid to face the grim power of Marxist dogma ! It is time to look at he words of Lenin, and throw them right back in the faces of all stealth commies.

Nelson Mandela was a Member of the Communist Party as were Whittaker Chambers, Malcolm Muggeridge and many thousands more. Yet he mellowed in his later years. Whatever his faults and warts, Mandela was unique in that he saved South Africa from the turmoil that the likes of Amin, Mugabe and many others inflicted on their people. When De Klerk ended apartheid, the ANC wanted revenge in blood and treasure against the Afrikaners. Mandela said no as it would drive then out and impoverish the nation. So he sublimated whatever his bitterness for the greater good of the entire country, the mark of a leader, and for which he deserves great credit.

#21. Agree with your assessment but you left out the reason why Mandela said no, and that was because the ANC main sponsor, the Soviet Union had collapsed. (thanks to Ronaldus Magnus). While a communist at heart, Mandela saw that his only support would come from Western liberals.

I knew in the early 80´s that Mandela was a communist. And I never could understand the fawning of the press. With the internet, I now know. The members of the press, if not communist or socialists, embrace most of Karl Marx´s ideals.

I guess I haven´t been paying attention. Like Posters #17 and #25 I had heard that Mandela was a communist which made sense to me and assumed everyone else thought so too. How and when did Mandela become just a "liberal/socialist" kinda guy? Something we could "live" with. Was it because of the book Long Walk to Freedom. If so, this goes down with Walter Duranty and communist cover ups.

Great article. I can´t wait to read the manuscript. Really enjoyed reading all the comments at the end even more. Funny how some still live in denial and cannonize him. I always knew he was a commie and not a nice guy. He did what was politically expedient for himself...he had no concern for the welfare of anyone but himself and he especially had no care for any white lives. He would have gladly killed all whites if he could have. The fact that they still don´t educate the population is proof that the communist ideals still prevail first and foremost...only the elite in power are to ever prosper while the rest of the people languish in poverrty and a declining economy as all their intellectual and educated resources leave or die.

#21, if I use proxies to slaughter my enemies, am I a man of Peace or just using the complacent, on thier knees slobbering Press to hide my bloodthirstiness?

Mandela did just that with his wife. And DeKlerk allowed a certain amount of retributive violence so that the locals wouldn´t go over the edge.

Had the Soviet Union not fallen, we´d speak of Mandela in the same manner as Pol Pot, Stalin or Hitler.

#13, I will defend apartheid thusly:
Rhodesia fed it´s citizens well. Zimbabwe allows them to starve, slaughter and die.

It is human nature to try to control the uncontrollable, to civilize the uncivilized.

#31. Your assertion that Mandela had no concern for anyone but himself and would have killed all the whites, if he could have, is an egregious slander beneath contempt. I was in Joburg in 1995 for the Rugby World Cup when Mandela publicly rebuked his daughters for promoting racial violence against Afrikaners and he forced both of them to leave his home, as a statement to his party and followers. His control of the ANC firebrands spared South Africa from the racial turmoil endemic to most of Africa, a visionary action for which he deserves great credit.
#32. As for your claim that Mandela used a proxy (Winnie Mandela) to slaughter his enemies; such is arrant nonsense. Mandela lived till 95 during which time he
co-habited w/Winnie less than a decade. In fact they were separated by the end of Apartheid in 1994 and divorced shortly thereafter. As for what Mandela had in his heart, suggest you leave that judgement to the Almighty. Francois Pienaar, Captain of the Springboks Rugby WC winning side, judged Mandela a difference maker who mattered. As for Apartheid, defend it if you wish but recall that the Zulu were in South Africa some 2000 years before the Dutch Settlers.

And if not the 50s, then at least the early 60s. The left accuses the right of being deeply paranoid. Meanwhile the left is convinced that every Republican sneeze is a racial putdown of America’s first black president since Bill Clinton.

Shutting down a speaker, or a professor, or a book with which you strongly disagree is nothing new. Indeed, if there’s anything really new about Brandeis’ disinvitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, it’s that they invited her at all, no matter how briefly. If the school’s donors took freedom seriously, they’d cancel their contributions. But the key to understanding Brandeis is that it has been this way for half a century. Banning Ayaan is indeed the fulfillment of a famous call to censorship by one of the most famous leftist philosophers of the last century: Herbert Marcuse, a Brandeis professor who

Zeituni Onyango, President Obama´s illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. I hope she rests in peace. America, however, should be up in arms. Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country´s immigration "policy" -- or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system of laws and rules that puts the national interest first. She was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, enabled by bipartisan fecklessness. To the bitter end, she bit the hand that fed her with predictable ingratitude and metastatic entitlement.

When Brandeis University withdrew an honorary degree for Ayaan Hirsi Ali after a student-professor firestorm branded her an "Islamophobe," the campus in effect declared itself an outpost of Islamic law, American-style. Officially, Brandeis is now a place where critics of Islam -- "blasphemers" and "apostates," according to Islamic law -- are scorned and rejected. Not that Brandeis put it that way in its unsigned announcement about Hirsi Ali´s dis-invitation, which notes: "She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women´s rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the

Recently, Copenhagen Zoo shot a young giraffe named Marius with a bolt gun, publicly dissected it—like a hanged criminal in eighteenth-century England—in front of children, and then fed the remains to the zoo’s lions. Marius was killed, the zoo said, because there was no space for him, his genes were already well represented in European breeding populations, and he was therefore a surplus animal. Despite offers from other zoos and even a private individual to take Marius, the Danish zoo wanted to avoid the possibility of inbreeding and thought that euthanasia was the best solution.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

"She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
