Surprize, Suprize! Nelson Mandela Was a High Ranking Communist!!!

This will come as absolutely no surprize to anyone familiar with international communism, or South African politics.

From Alex Newman, writing in The New American

Communist leaders Joe Slovo and Nelson Mandela

Despite decades of Nelson Mandela denying that he was an official member of the South African Communist Party (SACP) during his Soviet-backed war on the Apartheid government, evidence uncovered recently by British historian Stephen Ellis shows otherwise. The new research confirmed that not only was the African National Congress (ANC) leader a member of the SACP, he may have actually been a senior official working with the party’s Central Committee.

Still, for 50 years, while admitting that he was influenced by Marx and other communist luminaries, Mandela has denied — in public, at least — that he was an actual member of the Communist Party. But now, documents discovered at the University of Cape Town by Stephen Ellis, a professor based at the Free University of Amsterdam, completely contradict Mandela’s bogus claims.

Among other evidence, Ellis found minutes from a secret SACP meeting of top leaders in 1982. The papers document a high-level Communist Party functionary’s discussion about Mandela having joined the SACP around 20 years earlier. That would mean he joined in the beginning of the 1960s, probably 1961 or 1962, well before he was prosecuted for, among numerous other crimes, membership in the outlaw party backed by some of the most ruthless tyrants on the face of the Earth.

“There was an accusation that we opposed allowing Nelson [Mandela] and Walter [Sisulu, a fellow activist] into the Family [a code word for the party],” Communist leader and SACP Central Committee member John Pule Motshabi was quoted as saying in the minutes. “We were not informed because this was arising after the 1950 campaigns [a series of street protests]. The recruitment of the two came after.”

Experts including Ellis, who first identified and publicized the documents, said it was some of the most compelling evidence to date proving that Mandela was actually a member of the SACP. However, some analysts attempted to dismiss the new finds as insignificant, portraying the former South African president’s party membership as a mere alliance of convenience that was supposedly necessary to overthrow the existing government.

Had the proof been more widely disseminated decades ago, though, it would have been much harder for the Western establishment, including the U.S. government, to openly join forces with communist tyrants to support the controversial figure in his often-brutal guerrilla war. Indeed, if the world had only been paying attention, the signs would have been obvious to even a casual observer.

Today, if the truth had been known back then, South Africa might be a very different place, too. As The New American reported recently in a series of articles citing some of the world’s foremost authorities on the subject, the so-called “Rainbow Nation” is currently facing the threat of both genocide and full-blown communism as white farmers are massacred and ANC-SACP politicians plot more robbery.

    Now that Communism and Socialism are back in vogue, the operators are making anew PR push to establish leftist totalitarianism as the protector of downtrodden minorities. MLKJ will probably be proudly outed as a card-carrying Commie next month.

    And knowing this will change what exactly?

    The communist leftists are not about to do an about face and denounce mandela after years of propping him up as the saint who stood up against the oppressive white rulers.

    Jack Daniels, it is all about rebranding. Think Pepsi and Coke; Pepsi advertised itself as the choice of the younger generation to counter Coke’s traditional market dominance, defining Coke drinkers as stodgy oldsters, and it worked. Coke countered with New Coke, which tasted like a lamer Pepsi.

    Now the commies are branding themselves as the choice of a younger, darker generation, fighting the good fight since way back when. Republicans, instead of accurately portraying commies as the party of stodgy oldsters with no new ideas, will come out with New GOP. Guaranteed.

    There’s a lot to be said about someone that belongs to an ‘organization’ but always tends to hide that fact.

    It changes my opinion of what I was taught (and by whom I was taught) in school about South Africa and Mandela…..

    Thirdtwin,

    “Republicans, instead of accurately portraying commies as the party of stodgy oldsters with no new ideas, will come out with New GOP. Guaranteed.”

    That is what is so damn depressing!
