MASS MARKETING

 THE MANDELA MYTH

 

Film Review

The new Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom film presents a selection and distortion of the history of South Africa and Nelson Mandela as the secular humanists of the New World Order would like us to percieve it. The film rushes through the life and times of Nelson Mandela, completely ignoring the Cold War context and threat of Soviet communism on the borders of South Africa at that time. It glosses over the murders and massacres of the Marxists and presents scenes that stereotype whites as racist and blacks as noble revolutionaries only seeking for justice. 

Political Propaganda

Producer Anant Singh is recognised as South Africa's preeminent anti-apartheid film producer. Previous productions of Singh include: Place of Weeping, Sarafina!, Red Dust and Cry, the Beloved Country. Heavily funded by the South African ANC government and the Nelson Mandela Foundation, this 22 million Pounds authorised biopic presents a selection of incidents from the history of South Africa and the life of Nelson Mandela that will go a long way towards further marketing the Mandela myth. 

Emotive Speeches Backed by Orchestras

Shot for spectacle with impressive crowd scenes, the legend of Nelson Mandela is presented with numerous speeches backed with swooning orchestration that climbs to emotional peeks whenever Nelson Mandela addresses any crowd. 

English Born Actor Plays Mandela

London born actor, Idris Alba, plays Nelson Mandela from his early days as a smooth lawyer through his recruitment to the African National Congress (ANC), to his arrest, imprisonment, eventual release and election as president. Naomie Harris plays Winnie, the fiery revolutionary love interest and second wife of Nelson Mandela. 

Animistic Circumcision Rituals

The film begins with Nelson Mandela as a teenager going through the Xhosa circumcision ritual where witchdoctors prepare youth for initiation rites. The painting of their naked bodies in white chalk, passing through the smoke of burning everything relating to their childhood and washing off in the river, with full frontal male nudity, is disturbingly depicted. 

Anachronism

Next we see the Nelson Mandela character depicted as a smooth lawyer in a three piece suite walking past anachronistic security gates and burglar bars (which did not exist in South Africa in the 1940s). 

Shallow Stereotypes

The film is a mythic and heroic story of man against man. In this case it is a black man leading all black people against white people who are depicted as uniformly racist, shallow and stupid. The film makers apparently believed that the best way to exalt Nelson Mandela was to depict all whites as narrow-minded, selfish, racist bigots. The first scene of whites in the movie is of them sipping champagne on a balcony, while the black workers bussle around on the streets below. Numerous fictional incidents and comments are inserted in order to reinforce this stereotype. 

Reluctant Revolutinary

The time worn cliche of the reluctant revolutionary is inserted into the story turning Nelson Mandela from a happy-go-lucky smooth lawyer confounding a white woman in the witness box, to a frustrated and angry revolutionary fighting for justice, peace and equality for all. 

Police Brutality

Numerous incidents of mindless police brutality are depicted, giving the impression that, without any provocation, or reason, they would beat up, or shoot, black men, women and children in cold blood. 

Adulterous Affairs and Abuse

Nelson Mandela's pattern of adulterous relationships and repeated beating of his first wife are briefly touched on in a few fleeting scenes. Then much attention is given to the romance with Winnie, who became his second wife. 

Prefering Paganism

In contrast to the repeated, respectful treatment of animism, Christianity is dismissed in a few striking statements and scenes. Mandela states that God only seems to answer the prayers of the Boers, and Winnie declares that there is no God who will save us, we must save ourselves! 

Necklace Murders

Later Winnie Mandela gives a revolutionary call to violence from the front of a church, where the cross is obscured. With much anger and expressions of hatred, Winnie Mandela repeatedly calls for using stones, boxes of matches and petrol to 'necklace' the informers and kill the enemy. One brutal burning to death of a supposed informer through the ANC's signature necklace method is depicted. Actually, over 1,000 black people were burnt to death by the brutal necklace murder, so publicaly promoted by Winnie Mandela. Many of these were elected black town councillors and mayors - but that is not acknowledged in this film, which claims that blacks had no rights, no votes and no elected representatives. 

Ignoring the Cold War Context

Significantly there is no mention of the Cold War context and not a scene or a reference to communism, the Soviet Union or the Russian and Cuban troops, at that time engaged in conventional warfare on the border of Angola and South West Africa. 

The Missing Victims

No mention is made of the Cuban training in terrorism received by Nelson Mandela. Nor are any of the victims of his bombing campaign depicted. From the film one would get the impression that his armed struggle consisted of nothing more than night time bombings of unoccupied municipal offices and a power station. In fact none of the ANC's car bombings are depicted, not even the Church Street bombing bloodbath. None of the ANC assasinations, such as of Bartholemew Hlopane, are depicted or referred to. Nor the Shell House massacre when Nelson Mandela, as head of the ANC, after his release from prison, ordered his security to open fire on unarmed Zulu protestors belonging to the INKATHA Freedom Party. 

The Communist Connection

At no time does one even see a hammer and sickle. The huge Soviet and South African Communist Party flags that Nelson Mandela spoke in front of are nowhere to be seen in this film. Neither are any of the white Russian communist members of the ANC, such as Joe Slovo and Ronnie Kasrils, depicted in any way in this film. 

The Making of a New Religion

It is disturbing that this film is due to open across the United States on Christmas Day. With songs of praise and hymns glorifying Nelson Mandela being sung by choirs and taught to school children, we seem to be seeing a beginning of a new religion. 

Icon of the New World Order

Certainly Nelson Mandela is the pre-eminent icon and idol of the New World Order. The United Nations General Assembly has even declared 18 July, Nelson Mandela International Day! 

Strategic Timing

The timing of this heavily state-funded propaganda film is interesting as the ANC, mired in corruption scandals, is heading into an election year. Many see the timing of this film as a distraction from the disastrous failures of the ANC, by rewriting history to depict the past in the worst possible light and rally the voters of South Africa behind the party of the revered Nelson Mandela. 

Blame Everything on Apartheid

The violence of the ANC is mostly blamed on Winnie Mandela, with Nelson Mandela apparently disapproving. Even when referring to Mandela's divorce from Winnie, Mandela's character blames it on the apartheid government! 

The Missing Opposition Parties

There are disturbing and shocking scenes of the black on black violence in the townships with axing, macheting, shooting and hacking of men, women and children, but no explanations given as to who was doing what to whom. At no time is any hint given that there were actually other black political parties in South Africa, such as the INKATHA Freedom Party, with whom the ANC were locked in deadly turf wars. 

The Last Word on Everything

Throughout the film, Nelson Mandela dominates the screen and always has the most intelligent and profound things to say. He always has the last word, even in court and in prison. No one else ever seems to have a reply for his dogmatic statements. 

A Redemptive Message

After all the depictions of white racism and evil, the film concludes with Nelson Mandela commenting: "If I can forgive them - you can forgive them!" He asserts "peace is the only way." The film ends with a quote from Mandela's Long Walk to Freedom book: "My country is not meant to be a land of hatred. People are taught to hate and they can be taught to love. Love comes more naturally than hate." 

Divorced From the Historical Context

If the message of the film is forgiveness then it is a good message. However, divorced from the context of the brutal war being waged by the ANC to intimidate the people in the townships, and terrorise farmers and civilians, this film turns communists into heroes and Christians into villains. It also denies the depravity of man, claiming that love (apart from God) is natural and dismisses God as irrelevant. 

Presidential Performance

The film wisely stops at Mandela's Presidential Inaurguration in May 1994. That is understandable, because at two and a half hours long, the film drags and sags at times. It is quite episodic. However, it would be relevant to note that the Nelson Mandela presidency was a disappointment and a failure in many ways. Nelson Mandela reintroduced race classification for Affirmative Action, Black Economic Empowerment and job reservation. He legalised pornography and abortion. Violent crime exploded with rape and child abuse increasing 400% during his presidency. The currency imploded and the ANC looted the country of billions of rands through chronic corruption. 

The Abortion Holocaust

Over one million babies have been killed, officially, legally, in South Africa, with taxpayer's money, since Nelson Mandela forced through the Termination of Pregnancy Bill 1 February 1997. 

Crime Wave

Under Nelson Mandela's presidency, an average of 25,000 people were murdered each year. Yet, to celebrate his birthdays, Nelson Mandela would regularly open prison doors and set many convicted criminals, including armed robbers, murderers and rapists, free. Some of these were murdering and raping within 24 hours of being released. Well over 100,000 people were murdered under Mandela's term as president. 

The Growth Industry of Murder

To put this into perspective, in 44 years of apartheid, 18,700 people were killed in politically related violence. This included soldiers, police, terrorists, civilians, necklace murders, rioters - all victims. However, after Mandela became president in 1994, an average of 25,000 people were murdered every year. Over 67,000 whites have been murdered in South Afica since 1994, 3,000 of them farmers. Many fear that this film will incite further race hatred and targeting of whites for murder. Genocide Watch warns that South Africa is already in the Genocidal process stage 6 targeting white Afrikaners for extermination. 

Economic Deterioration

In the 1970s, even while facing terrorism, riots and engaged in a border war with the Cubans in Angola, the SA Rand was stronger than the US Dollar. In Mandela's first four years as president, the Rand lost 80% of its value and more than 2.8 million man days were lost to strikes. The national debt doubled under Nelson Mandela's presidency. 

Financial Failure

Therefore, under Mandela, even with no war, no sanctions, no riots, no conscription and with massive international aid and investment, the Rand plummeted to R10 to the Dollar. Economic deterioration and sky-rocketing crime marred his presidency. The Economist at the time described Nelson Mandela's presidency as: "a failure." 

Do Not Let the Facts Get In the Way of a Good Story

However, we are not meant to allow facts to get in the way of a good story. So, this Mandela film calls us to forget all these facts and to shelve our pro-life, pro-family, moral convictions and bow before this new idol, sing this politician's praises and effectively burn incense before the image of a new Ceasar. 

Rewriting History

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom presents a selection and distortion of the history of South Africa and Nelson Mandela as the African National Congress (ANC) would like us to remember it. This heavily state-funded biopic is politically correct propaganda which markets the Mandela myth by ignoring the Cold War context and threat of Soviet communism on the borders of South Africa at that time. Stereotypical and episodic, it includes numerous obscenities, nudity, occultism, pagan and humanist worldviews, anti-Biblical and anti-Christian sentiments, immorality, adultery, drunkenness, smoking, extreme, brutal and disturbing violence, revisionist history and racism. See: www.movieguide.org for reviews on all films from a Biblical perspective. 

Summary

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom markets the Mandela myth by demonising white South Africans, dismissing Christianity and God, promoting paganism, occultism, humanism, socialism, and justifying violent revolution. The film is a mythic and heroic story of man against man. Despite ending with a call for forgiveness and love, the rest of the film seems more inclined to incite hatred and racial sterotyping. It does not allow the facts of history to get in the way of their story of this icon and idol of leftist causes and the socialist New World Order.

Nelson Mandela’s Fruits and a Racist South Africa

By Ben Barrack

Almost as instantly as the news broke that Nelson Mandela had died, the cable news networks – including Fox News – all kicked into high gear, paying incessant tribute to the deceased Communist hero. Much of the reverence for Mandela is quite politically correct in nature. Here was a black man who had been liberated after being jailed for three decades by a ‘white’ government. He then led the country that jailed him. It was “story book”, to quote Joe Biden, who once said of Barack Obama that he was an “articulate and bright and clean and nice looking guy”.

Mandela with his wife Winnie and South African Communist Party President Joe Slovo.

Mandela with his wife Winnie and South African Communist Party President Joe Slovo.

There is a myriad of problems with the elevation of Mandela; he was a leader within the South African Communist Party (SACP), despite his denials to the contrary. On the SACP website is the transcript of a speech Mandela gave at the “Rally to Relaunch the South African Communist Party” on July 29, 1990. At the time, Mandela was identified as the Deputy President (later President) of the African National Congress (ANC). Here are some excerpts from the speech:

We are here today to participate with you in the public launch of the Communist Party, 40 years after it was banned. We do this because during the nearly 70 years of its existence, the Communist Party has distinguished itself as an ally in the common struggle to end the racial oppression and exploitation of the black masses of our country. It has fought side by side with the ANC for the common objective of the National Liberation of people, without seeking to impose its views on our movement.

It has been and is a dependable friend who respected our independence and our policy. Its members have been devoted Congressites who, as members of the ANC, have propagated and defended the policies of our movement, including the Freedom Charter, without hesitation. They have therefore given strength to our own movement, whatever their separate perspectives might be as an independent political formation.

Its leaders have been close friends and colleagues of the leaders of our movement. The general secretary of the Communist Party, comrade Joe Slovo, is an old friend. There is an old established friendship between his family and mine. We went to university together. We were co-accused in the Treason Trial of 1956 to 1961.

In a game of good cop / bad cop, the ANC might be perceived as the good cop and the SACP as the bad. In the speech, Mandela was careful to communicate that he was not a member of the SACP but wanted it and the ANC united (wink, wink):

The ANC is not a Communist Party. But as a defender of democracy, it has fought and will continue to fight for the right of the Communist Party to exist. As a movement for national liberation, the ANC has no mandate to espouse a Marxist ideology. But as a democratic movement, as a Parliament of the people of our country, the ANC has defended and will continue to defend the right of any South African to adhere to the Marxist ideology if that is their wish.

That is inherently contradictory. Marxism, by its very nature, is antithetical to democracy, assuming democracy is supposed to be synonymous with freedom. These are word games. One may debate whether Marxism should be banned but in that speech, Mandela was embracing it; there is a big difference.

Mandela embraced Marxists.

Mandela embraced Marxists.

If there is any doubt that this was an attempt to play both sides of the fence, consider the discoveries of Stephen Ellis, a left-leaning professor at Amsterdam University, relayed in an article at the New American. Alex Newman wrote about these discoveries, which revealed Mandela’s allegiances:

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.”

As Cliff Kincaid points out at America’s Survival, this would make Mandela a liar.

A bit later in Newman’s article, it’s revealed that apologists for Mandela’s membership seemed to put forth an argument that he had ulterior motives but was well-intentioned:

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.

That twisted line of reasoning is reminiscent of what Bill Clinton put forth at the funeral of Democratic U.S. Senator Robert Byrd, who had been a Grand Kleagle with the Ku Klux Klan. Clinton said the former KKK Grand Kleagle joined such a group because it was in the best interests of his constituents.

Becoming a leader within a murderous movement in the name of helping people is the worst kind of oxymoron.

In 2000, international correspondent Anthony C. Lobaido, covered the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), a group assembled to investigate South African atrocities committed both by the Apartheid government and the ANC. According to Lobaido, innocent and defenseless people suffered heinous deaths as a result of Mandela and his wife. Lobaido wrote:

The crimes committed by the ANC in the name of liberation are legion. First, there was the practice of “necklacing,” in which a gasoline-filled tire is placed around the neck of a victim and set ablaze — an action carried out by Winnie Mandela and her minions. Another horror was the “Church Street Massacre,” in which Nelson Mandela approved of a bomb set to explode at rush hour to maximize casualties of Afrikaner women, children and babies.

The same Mandela who told the black youth of South Africa to “burn down” their schools has produced a lawless, unemployable generation. Mandela recently traveled to Libya and presented Gadhafi with South Africa’s highest military medal.

A bit later, Lobaido wrote about the conditions of South Africa just a few short years after the fall of the Apartheid government:

Media coverage of the new South Africa has been muted at best, rarely focusing on ANC-sponsored anarchy. Indeed, South Africa, once a rich and prosperous pro-West, first-world nation, has decayed into anarchy over the past six years.

In the thirteen years that have passed since Lobaido’s article, the situation in South Africa has gotten worse. Despicable and heinous crimes are being committed by blacks against whites, particularly white farmers.

In an article that appeared at Genocide Watch entitled The Gruesome Reality of Racist South Africa, Arnold Ahlert explains:

In 1994, Nelson Mandela and his Marxist African National Congress (ANC) assumed the reins of power. The international community looked away, satisfied that justice had prevailed. They continue to look away, even as South Africa has degenerated into another racist pit, best described by an Afrikaner farm owner: “It’s politically correct to kill whites these days.”

In July of 2012, Dr. Gregory Stanton, head of the nonprofit group Genocide Watch, conducted a fact- finding mission in South Africa. He concluded that there is a coordinated campaign of genocide being conducted against white farmers, known as Boers. “The farm murders, we have become convinced, are not accidental,” Stanton contended. “It was very clear that the massacres were not common crimes,” he added — especially because of the absolute barbarity used against the victims…

…Many victims, including women and infant children, are raped or tortured before they are killed. Some have boiling water poured down their throats, some are burned with hot pokers, and some are hacked to death with machetes, or disemboweled. Several others have been tied to their own cars and dragged for miles….

The President of both South Africa and The African National Congress (ANC) is a man named Jacob Zuma, who dismisses charges of racist crimes. If the argument against Apartheid was that it was a racist government, one should be able to rightfully expect that those who sought to replace it would want to go out of their way to avoid becoming what they despised. When it comes to Zuma, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Ahlert writes:

…the ANC celebrated in 100th year anniversary with a song led by President Zuma himself. “Dubula iBhunu” or “Shoot the Boer” was a line in the lyrics of an apartheid-era song, “Ayesaba Amagwala” (“the cowards are scared”) that violates the South Africa constitution prohibiting the “advocacy of hatred that is based on race … and that constitutes incitement to cause harm.” Yet Zuma apparently felt no compunction to refrain from singing it, because the ANC considers it an integral part of the anti- apartheid movement that is part of their heritage.

Jacob Zuma: South Africa's President.

Jacob Zuma: South Africa’s President.

In 2010, Julius Malema, then leader of the ANC Youth League, revived the practice of singing the song after many years. After the South Africa High Court ruled it was hate speech, the ANC appealed. Last October, the ANC and AfriForum, a lobby group that wanted the song banned from public performance, reached an out-of-court settlement.

After Mandela’s death, Zuma spoke glowingly of the former leader.

Another problem for the pro-Mandela crowd has to do with both his associates and the fruit borne of this ANC / SACP alliance. The word “Apartheid” became synonymous with repressive governance. Now that Apartheid is gone, South Africa is controlled by the black majority, led by Zuma. Yet, the South Africa of today is home to the most brutal manifestations of racism.

Two wrongs do not a right make.

Speaking of Wright, in one of his most notorious speeches, in which he said, “America’s Chickens are coming home to roost”, Barack Obama’s pastor – Jeremiah Wright – equated the plight of blacks in South Africa to the plight of Palestinians at the hands of the Israelis:

“We (U.S. Government) have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans and now we are indignant!”

Consider just how hated the Jews are by the Arab Muslims. They are hated far more than Afrikaners were by blacks. Yet, when the Afrikaners were removed from power, they are subjected to unheard of atrocities. Should we therefore conclude that if the “Apartheid” government of Israel were removed, Jews would be subjected to even worse atrocities?

Mandela’s successor as President of South Africa was a man named Thabo Mbeki. Like Zuma, Mbeki held Mandela in high regard, even penning a poem in Mandela’s honor. In the last paragraph of his 2000 article, Lobaido revealed something very telling about Mbeki, especially in light of what the world has learned about a certain far left-wing billionaire:

In recent weeks, current South African President Thabo Mbeki (who admits he grew up memorizing the works of Karl Marx) has announced that South Africa has formed an alliance with communist China. For decades, South Africa had helped Taiwan, but last year, Mandela switched official recognition from Taiwan to China. Mbeki has applauded the seizures of white-owned farms in neighboring Zimbabwe, even as ANC black revolutionary cadres step up their terror campaign against white farmers in South Africa. His communist flank secure, Mbeki recently announced in a speech to parliament that he is effectively handing over control of South Africa’s economy to international financier George Soros and a group of 12 Western transnational corporations.

There is also a reason why Mandela and Cuba’s longtime Marxist President Fidel Castro were so cozy with one another. The Soviet Union and Castro backed Mandela’s ANC. In particular, both the Soviets and the Cubans sent troops and money to help the ANC fight the Afrikaners in Angola. In this video, Hollywood actor Harry Belafonte refers to the relationship, saying:

“one of the greatest friends that Cuba has is Nelson Mandela and his appreciation for what the Cuban people did and Fidel Castro.”

Belafonte spoke these words as video of Mandela and Castro embracing – multiple times – is seen:

What such people would have one believe is that the Afrikaners were the evil oppressors and the ANC was fighting for its own survival. That’s not accurate, according to Lobaido:

Through the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the gulags of northern Angola — where the ANC mutilated and tortured cadres who would not go along with the terrorist campaign — have also been brought to light. The ANC has admitted that torture and “staggering brutality” were committed at their Angolan re-education camps in the 1980s and “could have caused prisoner deaths.” In an internal report, the ANC documented 17 eyewitness accounts of detainees who survived the camps.

These are the fruits of Nelson Mandela, his ANC, his associations, and his ideology.

Once again, the media is missing in action when it comes to reporting the truth.

South Africa’s

“Truth and Reconciliation Commission” — ostensibly set up to cleanse that nation’s psyche of its tortured past — is finding that the Marxist revolution fought there between 1948 and 1994 witnessed a departure from the normal rules of war by both the communist African National Congress and the Christian, pro-West Afrikaner government.
The TRC’s official goal is to investigate crimes committed by both the Marxist ANC and the right-wing government during the apartheid era. Crimes committed by other groups, including the Inkatha Freedom Party, or by AZAPO, the Azanian People’s Organization, are also being investigated. If those charged with crimes promise to tell all they know to the commission, they can be granted amnesty.
Under ongoing hearings before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the sordid and often macabre blood sport that characterized this war has been leaking out in dribs and drabs to a global audience. Most of those appearing before the TRC can apply for amnesty and escape prosecution if they admit their guilt.
Many have chosen this route and testified against either the Afrikaner apartheid leadership or the African National Congress. Others, like Winnie Mandela, ex-wife of Nelson Mandela, and former South African President P.W. Botha, have maintained their innocence to the very end.
The African National Congress at first denounced a parliamentary bill granting amnesty for those who request it from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The feeling among the ANC was that it would provide a blanket amnesty for the torture and killings conducted by the right. However, as more and more of the ANC’s misdeeds are exposed, some have concluded that the Marxist organization is also in need of blanket amnesty.
The misdeeds of the Soviet-sponsored African National Congress have been well chronicled. It operated under and parallel to the South African Communist Party, established in the early 1920s as the first Communist Party outside the Soviet Union. In fact, the party was set up under the slogan, “Whites of South Africa unite to keep South Africa white.”
Throughout the Cold War, the Russians provided training and advisors to the ANC. Russia sent troops and billions of dollars in arms to fight a war in Angola against the Afrikaners. This was a part of the Brezhnev Doctrine to “seize the strategic mineral treasure chest of Southern Africa and deny these materials to the Western military industrial complex.” These minerals include titanium, used to build fighter jets, and zirconium oxide, a rare commodity used to sheathe nuclear reactor fuel.
The crimes committed by the ANC in the name of liberation are legion. First, there was the practice of “necklacing,” in which a gasoline-filled tire is placed around the neck of a victim and set ablaze — an action carried out by Winnie Mandela and her minions. Another horror was the “Church Street Massacre,” in which Nelson Mandela approved of a bomb set to explode at rush hour to maximize casualties of Afrikaner women, children and babies.
The same Mandela who told the black youth of South Africa to “burn down” their schools has produced a lawless, unemployable generation. Mandela recently traveled to Libya and presented Gadhafi with South Africa’s highest military medal.
More bizarre yet is the saga of

Executive Outcomes, a private army of Afrikaner special forces who fight on behalf of the ANC and Western multinational corporations around the world.
ANC death camps in Angola
Through the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the gulags of northern Angola — where the ANC mutilated and tortured cadres who would not go along with the terrorist campaign — have also been brought to light. The ANC has admitted that torture and “staggering brutality” were committed at their Angolan re-education camps in the 1980s and “could have caused prisoner deaths.” In an internal report, the ANC documented 17 eyewitness accounts of detainees who survived the camps.
“The ANC routinely violated its own code of conduct with physical and psychological torture,” said the report. One detainee has written a book about the camps, which he referred to as “a scene from [the film] ‘Spartacus.’”
The report — which was authored by two ANC officials and an independent advocate — did not single out any ANC members responsible directly for torture, although it is believed the late ANC activist Chris Hani was involved. Nelson Mandela has refused to apologize for what he said were “inexcusable” violations of human rights during the ANC’s terror campaign against the white-led regime. Mandela did, however, admit that torture occurred at ANC prisons and camps. But the report now documents that this abuse was widespread and far-reaching. Torture and murder occurred not only in Angola, but also in ANC re-education camps in Uganda and Tanzania.
This report was a major embarrassment to the ANC, which had been lionized in the West for its war to end apartheid and install a supposedly democratic government in South Africa. Detainees recounted in the report that they were tortured for disagreeing with Marxist orthodoxy, refusing to carry out bombings of civilians, being accused of spying, questioning ANC policy, or trying to leave the organization altogether.
Even the late Joe Slovo, a Lithuanian-born KGB colonel and the main leader of the South African Communist Party through the 1980s and early 1990s, said before his death that “it is possible that people died” in the re-education camps.
WorldNetDaily has now had the chance to examine the report, which reads in part:

“The worst conditions were at the Quatro camp in Angola, where guards and medical assistants were universally hostile. The inmates, whether convicted of any offense or not, were denigrated, humiliated and abused, often with staggering brutality. Prisoners were forced to crawl through piles of red ants, thrown down into trenches and then made to crawl out while guards poured dirt into the hole. Others were denied food, water and medical treatment. One prisoner had boiling water poured on his head. His head was then regularly struck against a tree to prevent healing. Prisoners were beaten to force confessions. Some prisoners were executed by firing squads for taking part in mutinies, beaten to death for infractions of military discipline or died of malaria and other illnesses in detention. From the late 1970s until 1991, suspected spies were imprisoned for up to eight years without any hearing, tortured to extract confessions, and beaten with sticks and wires.”

Ironically, the ANC accused the white-led South African police of conducting torture of black cadres in a similar manner.
The report continues: “We were left with an overall impression that for the better part of the ’80s, there existed a situation of extraordinary abuse of power and lack of accountability at the prisons. Order in the exile camps began to break down after the 1976 black student uprising in Soweto, which brought a flood of new and younger volunteers into the guerrilla training centers. Many of the new recruits were poorly educated, impatient to fight, given to drinking and drugs. Some were secret agents sent by the South African police. Thus the ANC gave its security department, called “Mbokodo” [the Xhosa word for "grinding stone"] unchecked power to investigate, judge and punish recruits.”
The panel that compiled the report also learned the names of accused torturers, some of whom still hold posts in the ANC’s security apparatus. The actual names were withheld from the published report, but are known to the ANC hierarchy. Two ANC leaders were directly named, however: Joe Modise, the former head of the ANC’s military wing, and Jacob Zuma, the former ANC secretary general. Neither was accused of torture.
However, Modise was cited as being part of a tribunal that in 1981 improperly arrested Dumisani Khosa, a producer for the ANC’s underground radio station. Khosa was arrested for “complaining about nepotism and sexual harassment” within the ANC. The report states that Khosa was “beaten until he urinated blood, then shipped to the Quatro camp in Angola where he was held for more than three years.”
Others implicated in the report are ANC representatives in Zambia and Uganda, as well as one of Mandela’s former bodyguards.
Rape capital of the world
Media coverage of the new South Africa has been muted at best, rarely focusing on ANC-sponsored anarchy. Indeed, South Africa, once a rich and prosperous pro-West, first-world nation, has decayed into anarchy over the past six years.
There is a rape every 26 seconds — only one in 35 of which is reported. In 1998, the official South African rate was 104.1 rapes per 100,000 people; in the U.S., it was 34.4 per 100,000. The “rape generation” of black males aged 20 to 29 have around a 40-percent HIV infection rate, according to some estimates. Many young blacks erroneously believe that if they rape a virgin, they will be cured of AIDS.
U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno has now dispatched FBI officials to help 20 South African courts to train prosecutors and investigators to try sex crimes. Yet there is little evidence that this help from the U.S. Justice Department has made a positive impact. The Advertising Standards Authority of South Africa even banned a television ad against rape because the ad “was deemed to be anti-male.”
Miranda Friedman, a leader of Women Against Child Abuse, said, “We sent 250,000 signatures to the ANC government for stiffening rape sentences, but they still haven’t been implemented.”
“The rape issue is three-fold,” said Narina Van der Merve, an Afrikaner police spokeswoman, in an exclusive interview with WorldNetDaily. “First, Mandela telling the youth to burn down their schools and not learn Afrikaans. Second, Mandela emptying all the jails of rapists and murderers — this is a classic tool of terror on the populace by communists the world over. Third, the ANC-mandated affirmative action programs.” “Most of the affirmative action-appointed police can’t read or write,” said Van der Merve. “So they can’t even write up a rape report. It’s a bloody joke. We have concluded that one in three women in South Africa will be raped in their lifetime. But I promise you, there is going to be a war in this country. The whites and decent blacks — Zulus, Coloreds and Indians — they are all fed up with the ANC and their Marxist lies. We are already in a war, only it’s the black communists who are killing and raping. But they have woken up the tiger inside the Afrikaner, and there is going to be a big payback for them.”
The case of Amy Biehl
While the crimes of the right wing under apartheid have been for the most part state-orchestrated or carried out by the extreme right wing, the crimes and murders of the left can appear haphazard and disorganized. Unless, of course, they are “framed together in a pattern of Leninist ‘anarcho-tyranny’ to cow the populace into submission,” adds Van der Merve.
There is no greater example of this phenomenon than the murder of a white American college student named Amy Biehl of Newport Beach, Calif. She came to South Africa in the early 1990s to work with blacks and help them prepare for the 1994 elections. She was a Fulbright scholar who lived in a black township and generally interacted with the ANC Marxist cadres in a peaceful manner.
In August of 1993, Biehl was attacked by a group of black youths chanting communist slogans like, “One settler [Afrikaner or Boer farmer], one bullet!” Biehl was stabbed innumerable times and had her head bashed open with bricks.
At the Truth and Reconciliation Hearings, Biehl’s attackers testified about the event. Three of the four youths who testified finally admitted that they were part of the mob that set upon her. A fourth youth, Vusumzi Ntamo, admitted hurling stones at Biehl’s head as she lay dying in a township outside Cape Town.
The youths tried to evade their 18-year jail terms by claiming that the killing was political and not criminal. Ntamo acknowledged that he was too ignorant to understand any political theory.
Biehl’s father, Peter, and mother, Linda, appeared at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission trial and actually shook hands with the murderers of their daughter. Mr. Biehl read a poem to the youths before embracing them. Mongezi Manqina — who admitted he applied the fatal stab wound to Biehl’s chest — wiped away a single tear from his eyes as Mr. Biehl read the poem.
Says Van der Merve, who attended the TRC Hearings on Amy Biehl, “I don’t want to be rude or insensitive, as I would have done anything to prevent this killing. But the Biehl family just doesn’t get it. They are what Lenin would call the ‘useful idiots’ of a Marxist revolution. Their own daughter, the girl they raised from a baby to adulthood, was horribly murdered by these animals, and they just shake the hands of the killers. This is the mentality of the liberals.”
Pauline Naidu, a South African of Indian descent, told WorldNetDaily, “I was attacked by some blacks in Durban at the cash machine. They beat me up horribly. It used to be ‘your money or your life.’ Now it’s ‘your money and your life.’ It’s just madness. Still, I wasn’t raped or shot — so I am thankful.”
The master plan
Many whites have fled South Africa during the last six years of ANC rule — almost one-third, according to some statistics. Nelson Mandela has pleaded with whites to stay in the country, and even begged for those who left to live in Canada, Israel and New Zealand to return to help rebuild the nation.
In recent weeks, current South African President Thabo Mbeki (who admits he grew up memorizing the works of Karl Marx) has announced that South Africa has formed an alliance with communist China. For decades, South Africa had helped Taiwan, but last year, Mandela switched official recognition from Taiwan to China. Mbeki has applauded the seizures of white-owned farms in neighboring Zimbabwe, even as ANC black revolutionary cadres step up their terror campaign against white farmers in South Africa. His communist flank secure, Mbeki recently announced in a speech to parliament that he is effectively handing over control of South Africa’s economy to international financier George Soros and a group of 12 Western transnational corporations.
