Skip to comments.Nelson Mandela “proven” to be a member of the Communist Party after decades of denial
Posted on 12/09/2012 12:54:46 AM PST by Olog-hai
For decades, it was one of the enduring disputes of South Africas anti-apartheid struggle. Was Nelson Mandela, the leader of the African National Congress, really a secret Communist, as the white-only government of the time alleged? Or, as he claimed during the infamous 1963 trial that saw him jailed for life, was it simply a smear to discredit him in a world riven by Cold War tensions? Now, nearly half a century after the court case that made him the worlds best-known prisoner of conscience, a new book claims that whatever the wider injustice perpetrated, the apartheid-era prosecutors were indeed right on one question: Mr. Mandela was a Communist party member after all.
The former South African president, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, has always denied being a member of the South African branch of the movement, which mounted an armed campaign of guerrilla resistance along with the ANC. But research by a British historian, Professor Stephen Ellis, has unearthed fresh evidence that Mbsenior rank in the South African Communist Party, or SACP. He says Mr. Mandela joined the SACP to enlist the help of the Communist superpowers for the ANCs campaign of armed resistance to white rule.

I hate communists
So do I.
But at this point I'd say that 100% of the democrats and two-thirds of the republicans in Washington D.C. are communists ... so what do you do...
Sure,Mandela was/is a communist. No surprise. What is a surprise is that we elect the same as our President, Senators, and Representatives...
The communists say he was elected. There is plenty of suppressed evidence to the contrary.
Decades-old news. But when the press is on the same side, they aren’t going to bother with truth or evidence.
oh come on, of COURSE he was a communist. They were all communists. The IRA was a commie outfit, something they conveniently hid from their lovely Irish American supporters.
And Obama, he’s a gosh darn communist too. And the Teachers Unions.
No, I’m not being snarky, they are all as red as they come.
But, we tolerate it. We re-elect them all. SO to hell with us. That’s what I say.
I’m joining Barbie on the dark side.
Do we really re-elect them all? Did anyone ask the corpses, the electronic voting machines, or Mickey Mouse . . . ?
Anyone who was paying attention knew of Mandela’s true philosophy.
Castro agressively denied his communist background until after his revolution too.
Meanwhile, we’re waiting for someone - anyone - with some sense and a modicum of insight to declare Obama a member of the communist party.
Mandela and all the ruling class in South Africa are communists. They, like the monster currently ruling the USA, are thoroughly indoctrinated marxists who believe that their job is to enrich themselves at the expense of the downtrodden they rule.
Communism is an ism that believes in the gluttonish enrichment of a few, but as Orwell famously wrote: some pigs are more equal than others.
Perhaps Bronco Bama wants to turn America into something like Zimbabwe. (Or is it Zimbabme or Zimbabyou?)
And my college classmates thought I was a racist when I told them Mandela was a proven racist and commie.
But research by a British historian, Professor Stephen Ellis, has unearthed fresh evidence that during his early years as an activist, Mr Mandela did hold senior rank in the South African Communist Party, or SACP. He says Mr Mandela joined the SACP to enlist the help of the Communist superpowers for the ANC’s campaign of armed resistance to white rule.
Meanwhile, were waiting for someone - anyone - with some sense and a modicum of insight to declare Obama a member of the communist party.
There, now do I win some type of prize or reward?
Alas, no - no reward. You have too much common sense to win.
No surprise here
Most of the media’s favorite Black leaders of all time, in the US and abroad, were Commies and Marxists
Look at the NAACP here in the US....it was founded by known Commie WEB DuBois. DuBois was traveling to, and, in the USSR well before the US even recognized the USSR
So Mandela being a Commie is no surprise
I see you are a realist.
Imagine what their heads would have exploded if you told them that the Naacp was founded by white communists !
Mandala was a terrorist and proof that one man can destroy the prosperity of a country if that man has enough people who are stupid enough to follw him
America should learn that lesson from him.
We now have that man in the White House.
Communist or not, when Mandela dies, the Republicans in DC will be fighting each other to get in front of a TV camera to deliver the most glowing tribute to Mandela.
He wrote a communist manifesto while he was in prison titled “How to be a Good Communist by Nelson Mandela”. Is that what tipped them off?
well yeah . the ANC has always been a Marxist organ . now if only we can get the POSOTUS to fess up?
Yes, he was a communist. Just about all liberals/progressives are one of the following:
- Foolish dupes
- Fellow-travelers who sympathize with the communist agenda but either can’t admit to themselves or are in denial about it
- Deceivers practicing a political form of Taqiyya.
Mandela, IMHO, was the third type. Jail time and the desire to be liked by the global community has moderated him somewhat.
But we're not supposed to talk about that.
The CP cleverly sought out and exploited groups of "discontents" in the first half of the 20th century.
And American blacks were justifiably discontent over Jim Crow laws and other discriminatory practices -- little did they know, however, that hitching their wagon to socialism's star would eventually result in the destruction of the black American family, and make life immeasurably worse.
He didn’t use the word Communist, but still....
I would add to the list that lawyer in India, Gandhi. He used the same tactic against England the communists and Islamist vowed to use against us...using our own laws against us.
obama is using a slightly different tactic, he just ignores all our established laws and it’s easy because he owns the Department of ‘Justice’.
“Imagine what their heads would have exploded if you told them that the Naacp was founded by white communists !”
and that WHITE is a COLOR.
The dominant ideology in any university humanities dept is Marxism.
