The Media Myth and Global Cult of Nelson Mandela

Mandela’s Inauguration as President of South Africa

  Inauguration day, May 10, 1994: South Africa had never seen a spectacle like it.  It was more like a coronation than an inauguration.  In front of thousands – among them royal personages, presidents, vice-presidents, dictators, tyrants, and terrorist leaders – and watched by millions of television viewers around the world, Nelson Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa’s president.  He ended his speech with the words, “God bless Africa”; but which god did he mean?  Certainly not the true and living God, the God of the Bible, for he was a stranger to the true God.  After he took the oath as president, prayers and readings by a Hindu priest, a Jewish rabbi, an Islamic sheikh, and Anglican archbishop Desmond Tutu followed![49]  None of these men knew the true God.  This religious syncretism was an abomination to the Lord.

  The world’s leaders had come to celebrate the entry of South Africa into the World Order.  And what an assembly of wicked people it was!  Among many others, there was arch-Socialist Hillary Clinton, wife of United States President Bill Clinton, along with US vice-president, AI Gore; there was President Robert Mugabe of neighbouring Zimbabwe, a Marxist dictator with the blood of thousands on his hands; there was the leader of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, Yasser Arafat, that vile terrorist organisation, smiling and speaking of Mandela as his “brother”; there was the Marxist President dos Santos of Angola; the UN secretary general, Boutros Boutros-Ghali; US Senator Ted Kennedy; US leftist religious leader Jesse Jackson; and there was Cuban Marxist dictator, Fidel Castro, the man whose forces had been engaged in a bloody and protracted battle with South African forces, as Cuba had done all it could to promote the Marxist cause in southern Africa, a man with the blood of hundreds of South African soldiers on his hands.  “Welcome to South Africa,” said the now deputy-president, F. W. de Klerk, warmly shaking Castro’s hand![50]  Castro had reason to be pleased: South Africa had finally caved in to the forces which Cuba had so long assisted, not by being beaten on the field of battle, but by betrayal.  Here he was, one of South Africa’s arch-foes, shaking hands with de Klerk on South African soil.

  It was a day of celebration around the world, for South Africa had been conquered.  A Communist was in power, the immense wealth of the country was available to the internationalist forces, and one of the last remaining pieces of the jigsaw was now in place.  Piece by piece, the world map was taking shape according to the plans of the Jesuit/Illuminati forces at work behind the scenes.  Another domino had fallen, a vitally important one.

  Never had the world united around a single cause – the fall of South Africa to Communism – as it had around this one.  Its diverse peoples were now under Marxist rule, and the country itself in bondage to the powerful masters who had orchestrated its fall.

  And behind May 10, 1994, stretching back into the years that had passed, was a river of blood and tears that no celebrations on that day could ever dry up.

The Growth of the Myth During Mandela’s Presidential Years

  Another entire article, or even a book, could be written about Mandela’s term as president of South Africa, and then his life of semi-retirement afterwards.  During this time, the media-created Mandela myth continued to grow and grow, until he came to be perceived, in the eyes of multiplied millions of South Africans of all colours and political persuasions, as the almost god-like “father of the nation”.  They separated the man from the political terrorist organisation-turned-party that had been his life, not associating the atrocities, corruption and other iniquities of the ANC with him.  Even as the country spiralled downwards, year after year, under ANC/Communist misrule, into a crime-ridden, collapsing Third World mess, Mandela rose higher and higher in the esteem and adoration of the people.  Not because of anything positive that he really did as president, but merely because of the power of the mass media to maintain and build on the myth that had been created in those years when he had been in prison.

  I wrote in an article in 2005: “In 2004 the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) aired – and then pulled – a programme called ‘The Greatest South Africans.’  It was a programme in which viewers were asked to vote for the 100 greatest South Africans of all time.  ‘The people’ got all excited.  Nominations poured in. Predictably, considering that the SABC is the voice of the ANC government, former South African president, Nelson Mandela, was declared to be the greatest South African of all time…. But what exactly is it that makes Mandela great?  Nothing.  Nothing whatsoever.  He is portrayed by the fawning media as the greatest South African, indeed the greatest African, ever; but – why?  He has done none of the things which make a man great.  He does not display ‘integrity of character’, he is not ‘magnanimous’ or ‘noble’ [dictionary definitions of ‘great’].   He helped to establish the armed wing of the terrorist ANC.   He was justly imprisoned for life for extremely serious crimes.  He was released 27 years later and went on to become SA’s first black (and first Communist) president.  He did not create a reconciled nation.  He did not heal the rifts between black and white.  He uttered many very racist, anti-white statements.  He enthusiastically supported the world’s worst criminals, thugs, dictators and Marxist madmen.  His worshippers cannot see that, in truth, ‘the Emperor has no clothes’!  Even if we ignore his personal character, etc., and look only at his achievements, he is not ‘eminent in point of attainments or achievement; exhibiting signal excellence in some important work’ [dictionary definition of ‘great’].  He achieved nothing of any lasting value, nothing of excellence.  He is merely the creation of worldwide media hype.  ‘The Mandela magic’ is really the Mandela myth.  The man is real, but his supposed greatness is not.  It doesn’t exist.”[51]

  And yet the idolatry continued.  Huge statues of Mandela were erected in public places, not only in South Africa but in other parts of the world.  These are eerily reminiscent of the giant statues of Stalin and other Communist dictators that were erected in the Soviet Union and elsewhere.  And yet the world, which condemned those idols, heaped praise upon the Mandela idols.  Giant images of his face, also, appeared on screens set up in public squares and other places, dwarfing the passers-by and giving the appearance of him being larger than life, like some kind of deity.

  He did nothing whatsoever to deserve his global, virtual deification.  Under his presidency the brutal tortures, murders and rapes of thousands of black and white South Africans increased tremendously, and he did nothing to stop this.  SA became a criminal haven, with tens of thousands of brutal murders and rapes every single year, and again he did nothing to stop this.
