I did it for Madiba!


I’m sure my South African readers are by now GATVOL of being reminded that 18 July is Nelson Mandela Day. Our radios and television sets have been reminding us, about every 10-15 minutes - that whatever we do on 18 July, it MUST be done for Madiba. I wonder if the promo of this campaign has also been so intense in overseas countries, for it is, after all - supposed to be an International Day. It was declared as such in November 2009, by the UN General Assembly – (who else?), in recognition of the former South African President’s contribution to the culture of peace and freedom… in case you forgot!

There’s no doubt that the creation of the global icon, Nelson Mandela (aka Madiba, his Xhosa clan name), was planned, most expertly and most discreetly, years before the average man on the street ever dreamed that a convicted terrorist would became a real live international symbol for freedom, justice, peace, goodness, love, forgiveness…, and all things bright and beautiful. It goes without saying - that they would have probably found someone else if Mandela did not exist. (By now, I presume, readers should know to whom I’m referring when I speak of, “they”.)

Much has been publicly broadcast and written about Mandela’s life and the 27 years he spent in prison. The overwhelming majority of these publications and documentaries, which exist solely for the purpose of influencing the attitudes of the masses (inspiring change, as they would say), looks all so splendidly civilized and proper, that few people hardly notice against whom the psycho-esoteric target of attack is directed. It is directed towards God Himself, as it subconsciously tutors the minds of the masses that it’s okay to leave God out of the equation - and to, “Do it for Madiba.”

As time steadily moves on, the finer details of the premeditated violence and suffering this terrorist spawned on ALL THE RACES of South Africa, will eventually be erased from memory, and fade from the history books of the world. The future generation will search for the truth – knowing that it must be out there somewhere, but they will not find it. The next generation after them will boldly proclaim that the missing truth were all lies anyway – and is thus not worthy of finding. Blogs like this one, for example, will vanish out of site, with the flip of a switch.

Besides a scarce reference here and there, very little has been said about the numerous endeavours on the part of the South African apartheid government to get Mandela OUT OF PRISON…. Instead, we are continuously reminded how courageous this man was for making (?HIS OWN?) decision  to STAY IN JAIL.

On 31 January 1985 the State President of South Africa, P W Botha, speaking in parliament, offered Mandela his freedom on condition that he 'unconditionally rejected violence as a political weapon'. Mandela refused! It was the sixth such offer - earlier ones, as far back as 1973, offering to remit his life sentence on condition that he recognised the Transkei authorities and agreed to settle their as a Transkei citizen. Mandela by Martin Meredith (Mar 30, 2010) ISBN: 9781586488321

Not surprisingly, all citations mentioning these offers of freedom speak of Mandela having to accept “exile” in the Transkei. Since when is an offer of freedom in your home country, among your own family and friends, considered “exile”?  Did Mandela perhaps refuse to accept these offers for personal reasons, and the fact that the descendants of his branch of the royal Thembu  family were not eligible to succeed to the Thembu throne? The revelation of African culture in Long walk to freedom, by Munzhedzi James Mafela.

Was it just mere coincidence that a nuclear particle discovered in 1973 by scientists at the University of Leeds, was named "Mandela particle"? 

Where was Mandela during his so-called ‘lost years of isolation’? Are the rumours that Mandela was an M16 agent really all that farfetched? Is it a coincidence that the long-standing former M16 agent, Richard Tomlinson, author of The Big Breach (selling now for only $0.51 on Amazon), was labelled as a criminal and a scoundrel, and imprisoned for violating the Official Secrets Act 1989?

The Big Breach claims, among other things, that Mr Mandela and his former wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, flew to Kent from France on a special operations helicopter where they held "secret discussions" with government officials. Although Mr Tomlinson still stands by his assertion that the Mandela visit was organised by MI6, he did make a public announcement, under intense pressure no doubt, stating that… "I realise that Mr Mandela may not have been conscious that he was meeting MI6 as opposed to ordinary government officials. I have asked the publisher to remove all mention of Mr Mandela."

Mr Mandela described the allegations, which were reported in a British broadsheet newspaper as "a disgraceful fabrication". It is not surprising that the whole episode received little credence in the South African press. UK news report here.

And lastly - is it mere coincidence that Mandela’s given name Rolihlahla means "to pull a branch of a tree", or more colloquially, "TROUBLEMAKER"? -- Sources: Mandela, Nelson (1996). The Illustrated Long Walk to Freedom. Paul Duncan (abridgement and picture editing). Boston: Little, Brown and Company. ISBN 0316880205. Mandela, Nelson (1994). Long Walk to Freedom. Little, Brown and Company.

The comprehensive list of awards, honours and other recognitions (more than 250 in total) bestowed on Nelson Mandela, is absolutely mind-boggling! Mandela also received several honorary recognitions long before his release from prison, namely – to mention a few:
  • August 1981 - Freedom of the City of Glasgow. In the same year two roads were named after Mandela by the London Borough of Brent, and the City Council of Harlow.
  • February 1983 - Honorary citizenship of Rome. **** See note below
  • March 1983 - Honorary citizenship of Olympia, Greece.
  • June 1983 - Honorary Doctorate of Laws. City College of New York.
  • June 1983 - City Council of Dublin, Ireland, unveiled sculpture in a city park by Elisabeth Frink dedicated to Nelson Mandela
  • July 1983 - Award of the order Star of International Friendship in gold by the German Democratic Republic  --  Sourced from: Wikipedia Page – Nelson Mandela
Hmmm, let’s see now… The year 1983… That was the year when Soviet-backed Cuban forces, heavily armed with Russian and Chinese weaponry of all sorts, were threatening to invade our borders. That was the year when strong SWAPO force infiltrated Ovambo, in February 1983 – planning a full-scale infiltration, and when South African forces successfully counteracted with Operation Phoenix…. oh never mind, the rest is here, if you’re interested!

****
Isn’t it odd that while all this blood was being shed, a terrorist sitting behind bars was being honoured by noble cities such as Rome?

There is even a seaslug Mandelia microcornata named after Mandela by two marine biologists who discovered it, Angel Valdes and Terry Gosliner.



In their words:

"This South African genus is named Mandelia to honour Nelson Mandela, who led the struggle for a multiracial government in South Africa. The specific name is derived from the Latin mirus (odd) and cornus (horn) in reference to the peculiar shape of the rhinophores of this species."

Mandelia mirocornata has only been recorded along the coast line of the Cape Peninsula. Source: www.biodiversityexplorer.org

There now…
I’ve done my part for Madiba, well before 18 July, and it took me longer than 67 minutes to do it… Don’t bother thanking me, I did it for Madiba -
His Excellency!

I forgot to mention, in the above posting, another incident that took place in the year 1983, when a few major cities of this world were honouring a convicted terrorist with awards of all sorts.

The Church Street bombing took place in Pretoria on 20 May 1983. I was about two blocks away from the blast when it happened. It was such a thunderous explosion that, for a brief second, I thought the end of the world was upon us!

The explosion killed the two terrorists who carried out the attack, and also 19
other people. In submissions to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
(TRC) in 1997 and 1998, it was revealed that the attack was orchestrated by a special operations unit of the ANC's Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK). The attack had apparently been authorised by Oliver Tambo, the ANC President. Many streets and buildings in several cities in South Africa were later re-named in honour of this man. The Johannesburg International Airport, known as Jan Smuts, was also re-named in his honour.

AND they want us to honour Mandela Day on 18 July, every year!

Rooi gavaar much ? Show me a country than carries the negative oppression and thought control associated with communist in nature than the Apartheid South Africa ? Even Soviet Russia or Maoist China were liberal countries by comparison. Kim Jong Il's North Korea perhaps is on the same level. What a laugh for someone to suggest there was anything noble about the awful Apartheid regime.

You know who really make me laugh ? The extreme right wingers who are trying to create an armed conflict in South Africa because apparently there is some oppression against their rights. They make me laugh when they say thing like someone really oppressed like Mandela was a terrorist for trying to fight back from ACTUAL oppression.

They can't even find real oppression to moan about so they make things up like "There are now white squatter camps all over South Africa" while whites are still by far the richest group and "there is a white genocide" when whites are the least affected by violent crime. For little to no reason some of the same people who call Mandela a terrorist promote the ideology of a race war. What are they then ? Promoting violence for not nearly any of the same valid reasons of actual oppression ? That's a real terrorist !

I'll call this : Pots, Kettles and hating blacks.

A good read: Iron Curtain over America - John Beaty and Communism;a Jewish Talmudic Concept. Both books are available on the website www.fugaziquo.com for download. Solzhenitsyn wrote a book about the USSR gulags. The book is not yet translated into english yet due to it's suppression.
Mandela's day is sure to come, maybe the scumbag is afraid of dying because he knows what his fate will be.
He is a terrorist, atheist and a communist.

Mandela Day?

The only sensible thing we all should contemplate about, but not only on July 18, is how to get out of the mess this dubious celebrity has brought us into since the disaster of 1994.

The Anon commentator @ July 16, 2011 6:43 AM, 7:49 PM, and 8:13 PM, is that dubious character from Port Elizabeth...(aka R..ster)

His previous delirious-smut ravings, which were also accompanied by threats of closure, were marked as spam, hence the reason why he often tiptoes in here under the guise of “Anonymous”.

Now it is not my habit to scrutinise each and every IP address that happens to land on these pages as I do not have the time to do this, the fact is that my true identity, which is well-known to many readers of this blog, has heightened my senses to be on the alert for potential threats of closure... which I’ve taken quite seriously! You may clap your hands now Mr R…!

You – Mr R..ster has been identified as the one-and-only solitary commentator who is in opposition to what is being propagated on this blog. The manner in which you often express yourself creates doubt regarding your bona fide intentions. I thus really don’t see the point in debating these issues with you. Neither is it my responsibility to tutor you on these matters, so if you don’t like what is being presented here, then don’t visit this blog… It’s as simple as that!

Hey anon: Any dickhead who thinks communist Russia was better off than RSA under any regime is totally freaking mentally deranged. You obviously never went there during the KGB days.

Liberal? You're freaking deranged man! at least any person (black or white) in SA could buy a car and wouldn't be on a 10 year waiting list, dumbass!

If you do it for Madiba on 18 July, you’re condoning the Genocide of Europeans. Any Whiteman who supports this cause in the name of a communist terrorist is a confused and demented soul. Although the communist philosophy appears to incorporate many of the same saintly principles we find in our Bibles, it remains a satanic scam of mass proportions. Its true colours have come to the fore time and again, leaving a trail of blood and despair in its wake…. yet the sheeple remain blind and deaf to the horrors of this reality. The socialist-communists call this a “victorious advance”….

“But in spite of this victorious advance, the Communist movement still faces powerful enemies which must be crushed and wiped out from the face of the earth before a Communist world can be realised.” – Nelson Mandela

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
