‘Saint Nelson Of The Blessed Necklace’ [UPDATED Below]

06 December 2013 @ 20:41

That fitting title was bestowed by Stacy McCain earlier today and how true it is.

As I predicted last night, the ‘sickeningly sweet sycophancy’ is in full rage mode and  TV News has, indeed, become ‘even more unwatchable’.

-Sadly, many on the Right have given into the temptation to speak well of the dead, unrepentant Communist Nelson Mandela.  A perfect example of this may be found by listening to Mark Levin’s interview with Breitbart’s Joel Pollak last night.  What you will hear, if you click here, is a sorry and failed attempt by Mr. Pollak to whitewash and obscure Mandela’s miserable legacy, employing some Moral Equivalence along the way [hmmm…just like the Lefties do].  As Stacy remarked last night:

Now, Joel Pollak is a friend, but he was born in 1977 — the year I graduated high school — so that by the time he was old enough to vote, the Cold War was already a fading memory. And I appreciate Pollak’s concern that conservatives observe decorum on this occasion, but if conservatives do not insist on remembering history as it really was, we acquiesce in liberal revision of that history.

One hopes that Joel Pollak will make a full recovery from his Quislingtitus…and soon.

Good Friend In The Ether, Evi, The Evil Blogger Lady, made this comment in Stacy’s post, at one point:

Being a revolutionary in the face of oppression (and there was definitely that) is not evil, per se. But the ANC was definitely corrupt and committed heinous acts. Mandela refused to foreswear violence, but also refused to be released until his fellow prisoners were released.

Violent crime did explode under his regime. So did AIDS, which his government at first refused to even acknowledge existed as a disease (and remember this was in the 1990s when HIV was well known). But he personally paid for that too, losing a son to the disease.

He was no saint. But he was not your typical African or Communist dictator either. He played an important role in the transformation of South African and in that role did more good than harm.

I replied…

If you use the word ‘revolutionary’ in the modern meaning of the word, then I must disagree. The goal of every Revolutionary is to tear down all existing institutions, set the clock back to Year One, and build Paradise On Earth. He seeks to wipe away all traditions, morals, and customs, and re-engineer Mankind. The Revolutionary seeks to be as God.

Thus, all Revolutionaries are Evil.

If Mandela truly wanted to bring about change with as little bloodshed as possible, he would have renounced the ANC and joined either the Liberal or Progressive Parties. Instead, he chose to remain in the Communist ANC [which, by the way, there’s evidence that the Soviets controlled] and condone and plan violent acts.

That Mandela never renounced the ANC or Communism means that he chose to remain on the side of Evil.

Since his election as President of South Africa, the ANC and affiliated Leftist groups have been waging a hushed-up campaign of violence and death against both blacks and whites there who will not enslave themselves to the Communist Ideology.

As one commentator here remarked, South Africa is, indeed, a sewer and Nelson Mandela had chronic diarrhea.

[Evi: I will gladly post a response by you to my comments, if you wish.]

-In a post from earlier today, over at The Other McCain, Stacy reminds us of what was going on in the African world during the 1980’s, when U.S. college campuses exploded with anti-apartheid sanctions and divestment-of-investments campaigns.

As he writes:

The sanctions and “divestment” campaign against South Africa was therefore an effort to advance Soviet foreign policy aims in Africa by sabotaging the economy of a key Western ally.

Please do take the time to read the whole post, which also offers a portrait of Margaret Thatcher at her best.

-I will attempt to Update this post later.

UPDATE at 2349…

-Adjoran is pretty damn spot-on in his remarks on Stacy McCain’s post cited immediately above:

It is one of Stacy’s endearing and quaint qualities that he believes a recitation of the factual record could have any bearing on the policies of leftists or the permitted opinions of their politically correct thought control.

The truth does need to be repeated, if only to ensure it isn’t completely buried, of course – but it never had any effect on the Left. They didn’t care for it in the ’30s, or the ’50s, or the ’60s, or the ’70s (just stop me if you begin to detect a pattern here).

Mandela was part of terrorist bombings, assassinations, torture, etc., and these were why he was arrested in the first place. He was a violent man who headed the paramilitary force of the ANC. When their buildings were raided, among the weaponry was a stockpile of 144 tons of ammonium nitrate. The Oklahoma City truck bomb contained about one ton.

It’s fine to recognize Mandela’s relatively peaceful – if corrupt – government service. That does not wash the blood off his hands, however.

My Quibble: The last paragraph — Saint Nelson had plenty of blood on his hands during his Presidency, outward appearances to the contrary.

-Gator Doug, commenting on the picture of Mandela in front of a huge flag bearing the hammer and sickle that I included in my post of last night:

…To the Left, only the Collective is good and noble, no matter how many people their beloved Collectivism/Marxism slaughters and tortures. You can criticize me for daring to share historical facts, but ask yourself this. What type of man would pose in front of this symbol? The symbol of Gulags, torture, butchery, and mass suffering? is that man worth celebrating? I will let you decide that for yourself. For me, it is rather cut and dry.

For me, too.

Communism has been nothing but a plaque on all the world, bringing only misery and death wherever it’s parasitical ideas gain a following.  It is a lead priest in the High Church of The Culture Of Death.  Everywhere it’s diseased Ideology goes, atrocities follow.

No…I will never have one single positive word to ever say about one of it’s adherents.  I have no fear in stating that I know Doug would agree.

-You knew this was going to occur [from a post by Donald Douglas]:

Black supremacist Ta-Nehisi Coates is leading the chorus of attacks on “racist” Cold War conservatives who questioned the anti-apartheid movement in the 1980s. See, “Apartheid’s Useful Idiots.”

You have to read the whole thing, but literally the bottom line is that to raise any questions about Mandela’s legacy, regardless of the historical context, and most importantly, regardless of Mandela’s terrorism and Communism, and you’re a racist….

Of course.

-Richard McEnroe has a picture up on his site that should be reposted and re-Tweeted everywhere.

UPDATE at 2359…

Stacy McCain has up another post on the fellating of Saint Nelson.  All of the Left and some, sadly, on the Right will not like the truths contained in it.

A highlight:

See, the media’s omissions from Mandela’s biography are not random.

It is impossible to believe that any figure on the Right, with a comparable history of association with terrorist violence, would be celebrated by the media as a secular saint when he died.

Well, yes, but . . .” and then our conservative friends give us a lecture (which sounds a lot like what MSNBC has been saying in its wall-to-wall Mandela telethon today) about how Mandela embraced peace and democracy and everybody lived happily ever after.

Except maybe for the people who got killed or raped.

The Gospel of Saint Nelson does not merely omit the long-ago victims of ANC terrorism, but also manages to ignore the ultra-violent reality of contemporary South Africa, “The Rape Capital of the World.”

It’s not me, the Evil Right-Wing Racist, who’s saying this, it’s South Africans themselves, and most of the victims of South Africa’s world-historic rape rampage are black, as are their rapists.

And hey, let’s talk about murder: In 2011, the murder rate in South Africa was 31.9 per 100,000. The U.S. rate is 4.7 per 100,000.

Rape, murder, terror — it’s the Communist Way…it was Nelson Mandela’s Way.

    It might help Damn Kids These Days to know what “necklacing” is: summary execution by jamming gasoline-filled tires around a victim’s body and setting them on fire. An especially gruesome way to die which was commonly employed by black South Africans against those they considered to be traitors and collaborators. The practice was officially condemned by the ANC (*wink* *wink*) and openly endorsed by Mandela’s then-wife Winnie. If they need proof, there’s video out there…which I’m not even going to try to find because I saw it once and I don’t need to see it again.

      I may end posting video of the practice if this BS goes on much longer.

        There’s a quote from Starship Troopers which goes something like this: “they won’t read, they don’t listen, but they can see“. Sometimes people really do have to see with their own eyes in order to believe.

    Take heart. Many of us are patiently waiting for the dog and pony show to end and for the country to recover to feed the disillusioned and the hungry.

    I am pleased to find we are not alone but we will make it. Whether the worshippers will be able to cope with reality remains to be seen though.

      Ike, has anyone seen Mandela’s face in a pancake yet? It’s more than 24 hours since the news broke. I’m beginning to suspect it’s all a con.

      • 08 December 2013 @ 00:28 00:28

        I saw his face in the bowl before I flushed!

        • 08 December 2013 @ 01:13 01:13

          Is that the flushing I hear through the speakers? Or just a few thousand enraged leftwit heads exploding?
          They might be atheists, Bob, but they’re wishing you in Hell all the same.

    One can think of Menachem Begin, former Irgun member, to see how the Left treats political leaders with “terrorist” pasts.
