Nelson Mandela, Communist
New York Times, by Bill Keller

Original Article

Posted By:MDMuskrat, 12/8/2013 10:12:21 AM

IN 2011, the British historian Stephen Ellis published a paper concluding that Nelson Mandela had been a member of the South African Communist Party — indeed, a member of its governing Central Committee. Although Mandela’s African National Congress and the Communist Party were openly allied against apartheid, Mandela and the A.N.C. have always denied that the hero of South Africa’s liberation was himself a party member. But Ellis, drawing on testimony of former party members and newly available archives, made a convincing case that Mandela joined the party around 1960, several years before he was

A Bill Keller whitewash of a Communist. Enlightening.

A typical New York Times sanitizing of a Leftist media-created hero - a communist but not really a communist! Can you imagine how the Times would treat someone who said, "I was a member of the Klan but I did not agree with the Klan´s philosophy."

I´m with the Times on this one. Who would expect a man of Mandela´s time and place to be an ardent and consistent supporter of free market capitalism? His own economic thoughts were probably socialist (just guessing), and his allies were communists, so what´s the big deal about joining the party when it suited his purposes?

I think the key thing is whether his motivation was African rule for South Africa, or establishment of an international communist order.

That´s why our black communist leader and his Congressional Black Communist Caucus are all going to attend the funeral.
Obama wants the center stage glamour and the rest just want to visit Mother Africa on our dime to send off a fellow communist traveler.
This all stinks.
The New York Times, he was against the communist before he became a communist. Like being a little bit pregnant.

"It is something in the nature, the culture, of liberation movements [aka "community organizers"]. United by what they are against, they tend to be conspiratorial, to discourage dissent, to prize ends over means."

The issue of importance for us today is not whether Mandela was a Communist....

But rather whether Obama -- and, by definition, his co-collectivists/statists, Reid, Polosi, Kerry, etc. -- are communists....

The People will decide this in the next election.

We went to war in Vietnam to fight the spread of Communism. Thousands of our young men lost their lives; we spent millions of dollars on that war. When we left Vietnam, millions of Vietnamese were murdered by the Communists. And now we are celebrating a Communist, and our President once belonged to the New Party in Chicago which was basically a Communist party. What is wrong with this picture.

Sometimes you ally yourself with others who share your main objective like we did with Communist Russia in WWII. Doesn´t mean we were Communists ourselves nor did Mandela govern as a Communist after 1994. Wasn´t Mandela´s ending apartheid a worthy objective and enough to make him one of history´s heroes? Most people think so.

They´re enough to make you laugh and weep at the same time. I have to think that most of the moonbats posting comments there are the final leftovers from the Lincoln Brigade and the Alger Hiss defenders.

We fought the Viet Nam War because we can’t resist sticking our noses into other peoples’ business – in direct violation of George Washington’s sage, departing advice.

In Viet Nam, Uncle Ho hated the United States, because – instead of eschewing the (albeit juvenile) concept of dictating to other peoples what kind of government they must have -- we had always backed “our friends” the French -- who “democratically” had owned everything of value in Viet Nam. Thanks, JFK, for deciding for us that 50,000 American boys would “pay any price…”.

Woodrow Wilson had no qualms about sending American kids to die in a foreign war “to make the world safe for Democracy”.

Thereafter, this social Democrat created the seeds of WWII by allowing/encouraging “our friends” the democratic French, etc. to steal most of Germany. Hence, it was very easy for Hitler to convince the German people that, when they did the same thing in reverse a few years later, it was just a legitimate pay-back time. Thanks, Woodrow -- for all your democracy and nation building.

Cuba is very much the same thing. Castro remains a “communist” to the extent that it has assisted him in creating and maintaining his island dictatorship for the past 50+ years. Mugabe in Africa is the same.

Mandela was an amazing man and leader FOR AFRICA. He did not become a dictator and allowed himself to fade from power. That alone makes him a giant in a land of Mugabes. But he was NO friend of America. Extensive documentation records his hatred for America and what it (used) to stand for. Lower no flag for this man.

“Communism” is simply the name for the system that prevents the subjugated masses from resisting the dictator – and one that spins the tale that it is really what is good for them. Uncle Ho, Castro and Mugabe were only trying to help.

If there were a lesson in all of this for America, it would be to mind our own business where there is nothing in it for us -- and to resist the siren song of the Internationalists/statists who have this quasi-religious belief that it is the function of America to “stamp out evil” across the globe.

Let’s see how well we do in drilling and fracking our own oil, so we never have to do business with the Arabs, the Iraqis, the Iranians, etc. again.

We probably won’t, because of guys like George Bush and McCain – who are addicted to their own self-importance in running their “world democracy “side-show.

Their message is: “What’s the matter with you? Don’t you like Democracy? And, by the way, you want to be “manly”, don’t you?”

I believe the motivation for GW to go into Iraq was well justified and desperately wanted by the miserable Iraqis. I was and am very proud of our efforts there to set those people free and put them back into control of their government. And I am so proud of our forces who gave their all to accomplish it.

Since #7 has made the same post twice today, I will provide the answer he seeks.

It is clear from his long trail of comments and associations, neither was "using" the other. They went together like hand in glove.

To say a man that lived to 95 was used by, or using, the communists is a bit of a stretch. If he had erred for a year or so as a twenty something, maybe. A lifelong association, on the other hand, cannot be ignored or explained away.

It is insufficient to point out that Mandela had been a member of the Communist Party for probably 70 of his 95 years. And, it is a self-fulfilling fallacy to point out that this was "not a youthful mistake." Of course not; Mandela was a well-educated person (a lawyer), and knew precisely what he was doing.

Moreover, the inarticulated assumption is that Communists are evil. And they are.

But the question that remains to be answered is: Who was using whom?

We don´t need personalities, here. Civility is important in maintaining a logical, informative, productive, adult discussion and exchange of ideas.

Unfortunately, Some people just don´t like what is being said -- so they attack the person.

Moreover, if more people were interested in the article selected, a few posts here or there would not constitute a significant percentage of the total.

Next, apparently, we will hear the suggestion that we should start controlling the number of articles that a single source can post. We all know those in this society and in others who must control the activities of others. In contrast, there are others of us who will continue to speak out for freedom -- to speak out.

Also, and fundamentally, a poster cannot control the number of posts by others -- which is a material element (i.e., by definition) in determining an arbitrary ratio or percentage.

But more importantly, this forum is dedicated to political speech, which is the very thing that the First Amendment seeks to protect.

Finally, this is Christmas -- loosen up, dude....

Bundy´s Rebellion

The thing that needs to be said in respect of the rebellion that has gathered at the ranch of Cliven Bundy is that it is as American as apple pie. At the rate things are going the Nevada ranchers are going to write themselves into American history right alongside Daniel Shays and the Pennsylvania backwoodsmen who confronted the federal government over taxes on whiskey. The echoes are uncanny — complete with the sanctimonious lectures from the federal government over the law and the righteousness of the anger of the rebels.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told a crowd of law school students that if taxes in the U.S. become too high then people “should revolt.” Speaking at the University of Tennessee College of Law on Tuesday, the longest-serving justice currently on the bench was asked by a student about the constitutionality of the income tax, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. Scalia responded that the government has the right to implement the tax, “but if it reaches a certain point, perhaps you should revolt.” The justice was invited by the UT law school to present its annual “Rose Lecture,” and discussed events throughout his career

The most terrifying aspect of the collapse of US power worldwide is the US’s indifferent response to it. In Europe, in Asia, in the Middle East and beyond, America’s most dangerous foes are engaging in aggression and brinkmanship unseen in decades. As Gordon Chang noted at a symposium in Los Angeles last month hosted by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, since President Barack Obama entered office in 2009, the Chinese have responded to his overtures of goodwill and appeasement with intensified aggression against the US’s Asian allies and against US warships.

Deserts always feel like my natural habitat, and I am very fond of them. That being said, I have, for my sins, spent a fair amount of time in Clark County, Nev., and it is not the loveliest stretch of desert in these United States, or even in the top twelve. Protecting the pristine beauty of the sun-baked and dust-caked outskirts of Las Vegas and its charismatic fauna from grazing cattle — which the Bureau of Land Management seems to regard as an Old Testament plague — seems to me to be something less than a critical national priority.

Washington- Sen. Ted Cruz said Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached if he doesn’t indict former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, who is linked to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. Speaking on Sean Hannity’s radio program Thursday, the Texas Republican labeled Holder the “most partisan attorney general the country has ever had,” and added that Holder should be impeached for “defying Congress and the rule of law.” Cruz cited the attorney general’s refusal to indict anyone in the months since the inspector general found that conservative and Tea Party groups were singled out for tax purposes.

Armed Rangers were brought in from out of state by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to assist in security surrounding the Bundy Ranch, according to the family. A heated confrontation on Wednesday resulted in Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon being tasered by BLM officials and a 57-year-old protester being shoved to the ground. Stetsy Bundy Cox, Cliven’s daughter, told the Washington Free Beacon that some of the rangers had Oregon and California license plates. “You know, some of these guys don’t even know why they’re here,” she said. “A few people have talked to them and they got called in

Before conservative policy wonks can win any policy victories, they’ll need to overhaul the Republican Party. For an idea of what that might look like and the challenges any transformation will entail, they should look to one of the party’s wonkiest politicians, Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal. Last week, as President Obama touted the 7.1 million private plan sign-ups in Obamacare’s first open enrollment period, Jindal gave the world a glimpse at what the outlines of a Republican alternative might look like. Not only would the plan repeal Obamacare; it would, among other things, overhaul the tax code to remove

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.
