    Verstek Feite oor Mandela

    In die lig van al die lofprysinge oor die geliefde sprinkaangod wat ons moet verduur, kom ons stel 'n lys van die ware feite oor hom op. Hier is my bydrae:
    1. Mandela is afkomstig uit die Transkeise adel, ‘n familie van hoofmanne. Hy het grootgeword in Qunu – ‘n gehuggie in die Transkei.
    2. Hy was die hoof van 'n terroriste organisasie.
    3. Sy grootste twee prestasies was om 27 jaar in die tronk te sit en om ‘n Springbok rugbytrui in 1995 aan te trek.
    4. Hy is gevonnis omdat hy en sy meelopers in 1962 die staat met geweld wou omver werp
    5. Hy het persoonlik die plan vir die Kerkstraat bom goedgekeur
    6. Een van die eerste dinge op sy agenda as president was die vrylating van 9000 gevangenes
    7. Hy is 'n groot bewonderaar van Fidel Castro en kolonel Moeammar Kadaffi
    8. As president het hy hom nie veel met staatsake bemoei het nie; hy was eerder ‘n soort vaderfiguur, die groor versoener (aldus Koos van der Merwe van die IVP)
    9. Hy besit verskeie wonings in die duurste buurte in Johannesburg en onderhou kinders en kleinkinders, ‘n uitgebreide familie van 28. Niemand waag dit om te vra waar sy ooglopende rykdom vandaan nie.

    The most overrated man in history

    I heard an Irish priest on the radio this morning stating, matter-of-factly, that Nelson Mandela was undoubtedly the greatest leader the world has seen in the past 75 years, or probably long before that. That'll be greater than Churchill, then, without whom the world might have sunk into a new Dark Age. He added that he was the most remarkable human being he had ever personally met - Mother Theresa would be second, "but a definite second". That's quite something for a Roman Catholic priest to admit, and John Paul II didn't even get a look in.

    The cleric isn't alone, of course. Rock-stars old and young, actors revered and reviled, business-leaders, princes and presidents all want a piece of the Madiba action. So do discredited politicians. They want to be blessed by his touch, justified, made whole, like the scrofula sufferers who once yearned for the healing touch of a king. There are some, it's true, who genuflect with almost equal devotion at the feet of the Dalai Lama. But Tenzing Gyatso is a reincarnated god-king, whose aura comes drenched in mystic wisdom of the orient. Mandela is a self-made divinity. "It is funny to see Hollywood's grandest, babbling like schoolgirls before a 90-year-old man who has never made a film," writes Sarah Sands. Funny, but also rather pathetic.

    The scenes of jubilation at the Hyde Park concert to mark his 90th birthday represented the emotional apotheosis of Mandelatry, the closest thing International Relations has to an organised religion. Even Amy Winehouse was resurrected from her deathbed, such is the great man's mana - and while the effect may turn out to have been short-lived, it was sufficient to have sustained her (almost) through an intermittently coherent hour-long set at Glastonbury last night. But it was perhaps the evening before, at a dinner in his honour, that Mandela laid bare the delusionary nature of the cult that surrounds him. Because it was on that occasion, after months of silence and prevarication, that Mandela finally said something that might, at a pinch, be taken as criticism of Robert Mugabe.

    "A tragic failure of leadership", is how he put it. Something of an understatement, surely, of all the beatings, the rapes and the murders perpetrated by Mugabe's thugs to enable him to cling to power, vote-rigging having failed so spectacularly in March. Indeed, Zimbabwe didn't even merit its own sentence in the Mandela speech; rather, it was tacked on, an undistinguished phrase in longer lament:

    We warned against the invasion of Iraq, and observe the terrible suffering in that country. We watch with sadness the continuing tragedy in Darfur. Nearer to home we had seen the outbreak of violence against fellow Africans in our own country and the tragic failure of leadership in our neighbouring Zimbabwe.

    Like the later Margaret Thatcher, Mandela has taken to referring to himself in the plural, though his appropriation of "our own country" and "our neighbouring Zimbabwe" more closely resembles a formal royal decree. Mugabe's criminal regime is here placed on the same moral level as the stupid but ultimately well-meaning decision to topple Saddam Hussein, another ruthless despot. Note, too, that the reference to violence seemingly applies merely to the breakdown of law and order that has led to attacks on Zimbabwean refugees in South Africa. Shocking as that has been, it was not organised and carried out by agents of the state and the ruling elite. By any objective assessment, then, Mandela has once more failed, or refused, to tell it like it is.

    It was a "tragic failure of leadership", all right. But not by Mugabe. By Mandela's ridiculous successor Thabo Mbeki, first of all, whose latest diplomatic triumph it was to remove the word "illegitimate" from the UN's description of the Zimbabwe election. But also by Mandela himself, who could long ago have used his immense moral authority to destroy Mugabe's legitimacy in a single word. I mean this literally. Mugabe's tactic, in retaining the support of fellow African leaders, has been to appeal to his status as a leader of the "liberation struggle". This, of course, has been the tactic employed by sub-Saharan despots from Maputo to Idi Amin, and Mugabe doesn't look out of place in such company. His rule has, almost since the beginning, be accompanied by corruption, intimidation and intermittent massacres, starting with the rape of Matabeleland in the early 1980s.

    Less bloodthirsty or frankly crazed than some of his peers (it's unlikely that human remains will be discovered in any of his fridges, come the revolution), Mugabe nevertheless yields to few in terms of incompetence or sheer cynical determination to advance his own power. But he is, so his propaganda asserts, a "hero of anti-colonialism". Only one person has the power unilaterally to blackball Mugabe from that particular club; there's only one independence leader whose personal record remains spotless. That person is Mandela; and he has failed to exercise his tribunician veto. As a consequence, Mugabe is today able to show up at Shaam al-Sheikh and strut his stuff with the other African headmen.

    He could have spoken out. After all, Desmond Tutu has been calling for Mugabe to be shown the door for years now. Tutu may be the one person on the planet who makes outsiders think the Anglican church worth saving, but sadly his writ doesn't run among African heads of state. He's not one of their number. He can only be a prophet, crying in the wilderness. If Mandela had spoken so clearly, they would have listened. And so, I dare say, would many of Mugabe's remaining supporters.

    It was too little. It was too late. It will do no good.

    You wouldn't know that from the coverage, though. Almost all the newspapers and broadcasting organisations went into overdrive celebrating the supposed significance of Mandela's words. "His words were seen as hugely important" said the Independent. "Mandela condemns Mugabe 'failure'" was the headline on the BBC's account. "Mentions" would have been slightly more accurate. "Although only brief, his words of condemnation will echo around the world and send the strongest signal yet that the tyrant's days in power are numbered," the Mail declared confidently. Somehow I doubt it.

    And, in a vignette that perhaps reveals quite a bit about the world-father's sense of priorities, it transpires that Mandela "personally intervened" to ban Naomi Campbell from the Hyde Park event. Using the softly-softly approach on dictators is all very well, it would seem. But he cannot allow himself to be compromised by appearing on the same stage as a stroppy model.

    And why had it taken him so long to say even this much? "He had to wait until the United Nations had finished and until it was clear that Mugabe was going to go ahead with this election," said a spokesman. It's hard to see why.

    If it be objected that, at the grand old age of ninety, Mandela cannot be expected still to take the lead in international affairs, the answer is simple. He has not always been ninety. But Mugabe always has been a crook. The events of recent weeks have been marked out only by their intensity, their thugishness, and their shamelessness. But Zimbabwe has been suffering from its president's depredations for many, many years. If Mandela had spoken out ten years ago, or even five, Zimbabwe might already be free of Mugabe's tyranny.

    We have been here before. In 1995, the distinguished Nigerian writer Ken Saro-Wiwa, along with 8 others, was sentenced to hang by a kangaroo court set up by that country's dictator of the time, Sani Abachi. Despite international protests, the sentence was carried out a few days later. But amid all the many pleas for clemency, one was noticeable by its absence. Few who heard it can forget the anguished voice of Saro-Wiwa's son, Ken, begging Nelson Mandela to intervene, declaring repeatedly that he alone had the authority to sway the Lagos despot. It will never be known whether or not such a call would have reprieved Saro-Wiwa and his fellow campaigners for democracy. But it would not have done any harm.

    Why was he silent then, and why is he as near as dammit silent now? Is he signed up to the same Dictators Solidarity Club as his anointed successor Mbeki? Does he prefer to float serenely above the fray, as apolitical as the Queen? Is he, perhaps, afraid that if he spoke plainly, and Mugabe yet survived, he would lose part of his own mystical status?

    Mandela is quite capable of being outspoken when he wants to be. In 2002, before the Iraq War, he was happy to describe the USA as "a threat to world peace" and even accused the Americans and British of by-passing the United Nations because its then Secretary General, Kofi Annan, was black! "If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America" he said a few months later. Doubtless when he hears Robert Mugabe laying into the wicked neo-colonialists of Whitehall he nods his noble old head in agreement.

    Verstek Ant: Feite oor Mandela

    That Nelson Mandela is both a great and a good man I wouldn't deny. His achievement in leading South Africa to majority rule with surprisingly little bitterness and bloodshed will assure him his place in history. He played to perfection the role that the world wanted, and South Africa needed, him to perform. There's no doubt that, had he called for a bloody revenge on the white minority many would have answered his call. He did not; and the moral authority he gained as father of the nation has not been squandered. His work raising money to combat HIV and for development projects in Africa has continued into late old-age. He has never sought to enrich himself or his family, and if he has not refused the statues and the honours offered him, as it were to a deified Caesar, by an awestruck world he has used such occasions to promote a wider message.

    But he has his faults and moral blind-spots, and a fondness for cosying up to dictators well-versed in liberation-speak is perhaps the worst. His reluctance to criticise Mugabe by name is of a piece, not only with his reluctance to help Ken Saro-Wiwa, but also his friendship with Libya's Colonel Gadhafi, Fidel Castro (the great fallen idol of the international Left) and even, according to some accounts, Saddham Hussein himself. His loudest condemnations have always been reserved for Western countries, even as they showered him with medals and honorary degrees. Even his greatest achievement, in South Africa, was largely a symbolic one. He was the point of gravity around which a new South Africa coalesced. Yet even as he emerged from prison on that unforgettable day in 1990 the South African settlement had already taken shape, and the biggest decisions, and concessions, were not his.

    Mandela, in short, is great, but not that great; good, but far from perfect; wise, but also deeply foolish and morally purblind. There is a complex and interesting Mandela that will one day, perhaps, be rediscovered by the historians who will cut him down to size. But many years will have to pass before that reassessment occurs. A generation, probably two, perhaps three, will have to die. For a shiftless, sceptical, fractured age seems to need a hero, a figure almost beyond the category of human being who can bestow a kind of legitimacy on the whole planet. The Myth of Mandela makes the world see itself as a nicer, truer, more noble place. But myth it undoubtedly is.

    King Nelson Mandela's Image
    How Long Before Worship Is Required

    From AfricanCrisis.Org
    By Shaun Willcock
    7-25-4


    There are plans to erect a giant statue of Nelson Mandela, 65 metres (over 200 feet) high, in the city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. This sculpture would be bigger than the Statue of Liberty in New York!

    Communist countries have loved to idolize their leaders, conferring near-godlike status upon them after their deaths. Historically and officially, Communism despised all religion, but lost no time in creating a religion of its own: the religion of the State itself. And the gods of this State religion were its leaders and founders, to whom the masses were required to pay homage. Vladimir Leninís corpse was set up in public to be virtually adored. Russians in their hundreds of thousands would line up to file slowly and reverently past his see-through casket, to gaze adoringly at his mortal remains. Giant statues of Lenin, Stalin and other Communist 'heroes' were erected all over the vast Soviet Union.

    More recently in Turkmenistan, which used to be part of the Soviet Union and is (like the rest of the old Soviet republics) still ruled by Communists (for Communism never died in the USSR), the dictator Niyazov had a giant, 40-metre, golden rotating image of himself erected in the capital Ashgabad.

    But South Africa looks set to outdo even such attempts at deifying Communist rulers, with its planned massive statue of Nelson Mandela. Nothing has been said so far about casting the statue in gold, or making it revolve on its base, but wait, these are still early days. In South Africa today, when it comes to the bizarre, the sycophantic, anything is possible. More days than not, we who live here feel as if weíre living in a giant madhouse.

    For the time being, the Port Elizabeth city council has had to shelve their plans for this so-called ìStatue of Freedom.î Reason: a battle over prime property. But not for long, according to the head of the ìStatue of Freedomî committee, who said: ìThe project continues. The dispute might delay the whole waterfront, but we believe the statue will go onî (The Mail and Guardian, July 16 2004, as reported in The Witness, July 17). So it would appear that this monstrosity, this idol of an idol, will be erected on the Port Elizabeth waterfront? That will certainly cast a shadow - very literally - over the sunny beaches of the 'Friendly City.'

    South Africa is a country in turmoil. It is unraveling at the very seams. Crime is out of control, with the country being rated as the most violent on earth outside of a war zone. Millions are jobless and starving. The health, education, and other departments are in terminal decline. Racist ìaffirmative actionî is driving tens of thousands of skilled workers to emigrate. Genocide is being waged against the country's white farmers. Corruption at every level is wreaking havoc with the economy. The countryís once-excellent infrastructure is falling apart. A First World country has very definitely become a Third World chaotic mess. And in the midst of all of this, there are these plans to erect an image to Nelson Mandela, the perceived god of Africa!

    What exactly has this man done to deserve such a status? What exactly?

    Today, as I write this, it was Mandela's 86th birthday. The news reports were full of scenes of people everywhere, including very young children, singing his praises, sending him cards, and saying things like, 'We love you!' and 'Thank you Mr Mandela!'

    But what exactly should he be thanked for? What great exploits has he done, to deserve such frenzied, hysterical adulation?

    His life before prison was spent as a terrorist; and once he became president, what happened? South Africa spiraled downwards into near-anarchy and ruin. He has done none of the things that make a man truly great. None. Nothing. Zero. He has, like every Communist leader before him anywhere in the world, taken his country down the path of collapse. And yet he is idolized the world over. Such is the utter gullibility of the vast majority of people today. They believe what they are told to believe. They have believed a lie.

    Hence the planned giant image. And when it is erected, the next giant step towards the full deification of Nelson Mandela will have taken place. The Mandela myth will be even more firmly enshrined in the hearts and minds of millions the world over. The world will continue to gasp with admiration and to sing his praises. But almost no one seems able ñ or willing -- to discern the obvious: that in truthÖ the Emperor has no clothes.

    The Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, made a giant image of gold, and commanded that all men fall down before it and worship it (Dan.3:1-7). If this image to Mandela is ever erected, will the day come when South Africans will be required to worship before it? Does that sound too far-fetched? In North Korea, the Communist dictator demands to be worshipped as a god.

    The Oxford Dictionary defines worship, among other things, as: 'to adore with appropriate acts, rites, or ceremonies; to regard with extreme respect or devotion; to honour; to regard or treat with honour or respect; to salute, to bow down to.'

    Given the already almost-godlike status conferred on Nelson Mandela by a fawning world, can we be certain that bowing down to, saluting, and regarding with extreme respect or devotion, will not be required at some point in the future?

    Interessant.

    Ek haal 'n gedeelte aan:

    In July 2001 he was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer. He was treated with a seven-week course of radiation. In 2003 Mandela's death was erroneously announced by the Cable News Network, CNN, when his pre-written obituary was inadvertently published on its website. In 2007, while he was on holiday in Mozambique, email and SMS messages were circulated claiming that the South African government was covering up Mandela's death and that white South Africans would be massacred after his funeral. Again, it turned out to be falsehood.

    THE MANDELA MYTH
    THE GENESIS OF THE END

    By: Cindy-Lou Dale

    Being of South African origin and having a white skin has, over the decades, been a curse. I have been classified as racist before opening my mouth and quite frankly, I’m sick to death of it.

    Not so long ago, while preparing to interview a blowhard African-American businessman on a subject unrelated to this article, I was informed that he felt ‘uncomfortable’ about being interviewed by me. He had picked up on my somewhat subtle South African accent and decided I was a racist and referred to me as "one of them". For a moment, I felt as if all the energy had been sucked out of the room, and to say I was peeved would be too mild by far. I underwent what I imagine a ballistic implosion felt like. But I kept calm long enough to gather my thoughts. I needed to tell this man the truth. The truth the world does not want to hear. The truth the media has successfully withheld from the masses.

    What transpired in that interview could, of course, not be reported to the magazine I was working for. I transcribe an edited version of the recorded conversation as follows:

    Cindy: I am no longer bound by diplomacy, so forgive me if I occasionally lapse into reality, but did you just call me a racist?

    Businessman: I suppose so, yes. You are South African, are you not?

    Cindy: So, in your opinion, which is obviously grossly misinformed, all South Africans who oppose the ANC government, are racists? What would you call the millions of black South Africans who are anti-ANC? Are they being racist too? Don’t judge me by your preconceived ideas of racism. Many white South Africans took part in the anti-apartheid struggle, as they thought the ANC would bring democracy to South Africa. But they were wrong.

    Businessman: Nelson Mandela is a hero the world over! How can you say this?

    Cindy: Should I question why you have condemned Osama Bin Laden and his followers as terrorists, when they were clearly claiming to be freedom fighters, just as Nelson Mandela did? Should the rest of the world not be demanding that you make him your next President? To South Africa, there is no difference between what al-Qaida did and what Mandela, Mbeki and the ANC did and still are doing.

    Businessman: Huh? (mouth agape).

    Cindy: Perhaps you are not aware that the communist regime in South Africa now kills, rapes, and assaults people indiscriminately to the point where South Africa is considered the most dangerous place, outside of a war zone. You seem to imagine that one act of terrorism is justified because of its motive, while another is condemnable. If you believe Mandela fought against apartheid, you display gross ignorance. The battle against the ANC was a battle against communism. Mandela hid behind the apartheid mask, and the world swallowed the lie, his real purpose being was to install communism in South Africa. Mandela even admitted at his trial that he was ‘influenced’ by communism. If you cannot believe me, just look at what he accomplished. South Africa today is ruled by the ANC, within which, all the members of the ruling elite are card-carrying members of the South African Communist Party, an organization fundamentally clinging to Marxist doctrine. The liberal West fell for the trick and today only Botswana, Swaziland, and Lesotho are non-communist; but the latter two are crumbling. Ironically, there is more racism in South Africa today than there ever has been. Mandela’s objective was never the eradication of racism – racism is practiced with an iron fist of no tolerance, which is proof in itself that his fight had nothing to do with apartheid.

    Businessman: Is this for real?

    Cindy: Video clips have been shown of victims of "necklace" murders. I recall one victim still had his arms tied behind his back. Although it is unthinkable for the normal human mind that people can dance and chant around a burning and begging human being, it actually happened in more than 500 reported cases. Why? Perhaps we should ask the so-called Mother of the Nation, Mrs. Winnie Mandela, what she meant, when she said, "With tyres and matches we will liberate this country".

    Businessman: (Expletive)… I don’t believe this!

    Cindy: A terrorist is a terrorist, regardless of the motive. A debate about my country’s policies and politics would be fruitless unless you became educated about its history – but not as it has been recorded by those who purposely distorted the facts. Although the white South African government was called racist and the average white citizens were called thugs, one only needs to look at the outcome to find out who spoke the truth during the anti-apartheid war. The former white government said they were fighting communism, while the ANC said they fought for justice. Now, more than a decade after the handover, there is a communist government in place and less justice.

    Businessman: I came from America to address a delegation but instead I am being re-educated about South African politics. What you are telling me is insane!

    Cindy: Everything is insane--even more insane when someone calls me a racist. Not for a moment will I doubt your patriotism. Don't you dare doubt mine.

    Businessman: Hell, no. Come to America and from there expose this government for what they are.

    Cindy: Do you really think the world wants to come out from their false guilt and learn about Mandela and his side-kicks? Do they need to be reminded of why he was imprisoned in the first place? Recall, he was once the most wanted and notorious terrorist and mass murderer. I don’t think the masses could grasp the fact that bigger power games are being played here. World power moguls carefully conspired and manipulated circumstances to put a puppet martyr on the throne of the wealthiest country on the African continent. Now he and the ANC government are the champions of the oppressed, he is the icon of all freedom fighters. Slowly driving out the whites and killing the farmers, one by one.

    Businessman: What can America do?

    Cindy: I cannot tell America what they must do. But I can tell America what they must not do. The very worst thing is more foreign aid. For the most part, foreign aid is government to government, and as such, it provides the financial resources that allow Africa's corrupt regimes to buy military equipment, pay off cronies and continue to oppress their people. It also provides resources for the leaders to set up "retirement" accounts in Swiss banks. Even so-called humanitarian aid in the form of food is often diverted. Mugabe's thugs rip labels off wheat and corn shipments from the United States and Europe and re-label them as benevolence from the dictator. Most of what Africa needs the West cannot give, and that's the rule of law, private-property rights, an independent judiciary and limited government.

    (At this stage I realized the tape recorder was switched on and promptly turned it off.)

    Listening to this tape got me thinking. How has all this anarchy come to pass? I was brought up to believe that all men are created equal. Equal? I find this a startling assumption as clearly, this is definitely not so. Humanity is unmistakably divided into two categories – good and evil; which is openly displayed in what we witness daily. Man’s humanity to man and more so their inhumanity to man; those who are vicious and animal-like, waging war and killing and those that are enlightened, peaceful and caring

    Verstek Ant: Feite oor Mandela

    Now, let’s look at the world leaders. See how many of their personality traits can you pick out of this profile.

    1. Glibness/Superficial Charm - Language can be used without effort by them, to confuse and convince their audience. Captivating storytellers who exude self-confidence, they can spin a web that intrigues others. Since they are persuasive, they have the capacity to destroy their critics verbally or emotionally.
    2. Manipulative and Cunning - They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They dominate and humiliate their victims.
    3. Grandiose Sense of Self - Feels entitled to certain things as "their right." Craves adulation and attendance. Must be the center of attention with their own fantasies, as the "spokesman for God," "enlightened," "leader of humankind," etc. Creates an us-versus-them mentality.
    4. Pathological Lying - Has no problem lying coolly and easily. It is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and able to pass lie detector tests.
    5. Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt - A deep-seated rage, that is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims, and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
    6. Shallow Emotions - When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion, it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
    7. Incapacity for Love - While they talk about "God's love" they are unable to give or receive it. Since they do not believe in the genuineness of their followers' love, they are very harsh in testing their devotees and expect them to feel guilt for their failings. Expects unconditional surrender.
    8. Need for Stimulation - Living on the edge, yet testing the beliefs of their followers with bizarre rules, punishments and behaviors. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal.
    9. Callousness/Lack of Empathy - Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them. Their skills are used to exploit, abuse and exert power. Since the follower cannot believe their leader would callously hurt them, they rationalize the behavior as necessary for their (or the group's) own "good" and deny the abuse. When devotees become aware of the exploitation it feels like a "spiritual rape" to them.
    10. Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency - Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
    11. Irresponsibility/Unreliability - Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blame their followers or others outside their group. Blame reinforces passivity and obedience and produces guilt, shame, terror and conformity in the followers.
    12. Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity – Totalitarian leaders frequently practice promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts. This is usually kept hidden from all but the inner circle. Stringent sexual control of their followers, such as forced breakups and divorces, removal of children from parents, rules for dating, etc.
    13. Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle - Tends to move around a lot or makes all-encompassing promises for the future. Many groups claim as their goal world-domination or other utopian promises. Great contrast between the leader's opulent lifestyle and the followers' impoverishment. Support by gifts and donations from the followers who are pressured to give through fear and guilt. Highly sensitive to their own pain and health.
    14. Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility - Changes their image and that of the group as needed, to avoid prosecution, to increase income, and to recruit a range of members. Is able to adapt or relocate as needed, to preserve the group. Can resurface later with a new name, a new front group, and a new twist on the scam.

    Other related qualities: Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them; Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them; authoritarian; secretive; paranoid; only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired; conventional appearance; goal of enslavement of their victim(s); exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim's life; has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude and love); ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim.

    You have just read the mind-manipulating personality profile of a sociopath and probably the personality profile of several prominent world leaders -- the very leaders who exercise their exceptional abilities to charm and seduce their followers, as well as the media. The self-same media that foolishly allows itself to be manipulated and hoodwinked and that, in turn, reports its misguided findings to the masses, whose reports we naively believe.

    Now, let’s go back to Mandela. What is his claim to greatness – is it because he’s a world renowned politician? I doubt that. World leaders coerced the media into a Mandela frenzy, which was certain to make him a legend before he was released from prison. He had been sanctified by the press as a man of glory, but the press conveniently forgot why he had been imprisoned for 27 years. Power moguls, the world, over spent decades manipulating the country’s political affairs to a point where South Africa became ungovernable; and to save his countrymen from what would have been a bloody massacre in a looming civil war, President FW De Klerk’s only option was to release Mandela from prison. Has Mandela written anything of significance? No, he can barely string an coherent sentence together. Others’ thoughts are conveyed in the speeches he delivers, and his autobiography, "Long Walk to Freedom," was written by someone else. And, as for being a good politician – that is one thing he definitely cannot be accused of, as he has solved none of the country’s problems.

    His Comrades from other Marxist states, who helped mould him into the fine statesman that he is today, want him to now wield the silent weapon -- his reputation -- against President Bush. We all knew that he would soon reappear, after taking a well deserved rest from presiding over the country’s immense wealth earned by others and governing over the total destruction of South Africa’s once prosperous economy. The very icon of humanity who left South Africa in chaos and helped reduce a wealthy nation to near poverty, now points a bony finger at America and accuses President Bush of having ulterior motives for the war on Iraq, stating that "… President Bush only wants the oil in Iraq. We must expose this as much as possible." This, to the nation that campaigned tirelessly for his release and that placed trade embargoes on South Africa, opposing their segregation laws. But Mandela prefers to stand with Saddam not because he believes in Iraq's cause, but because they are Comrades in the real sense.

    Is that his halo I see slipping? Are we now seeing the true Mandela? Leaders like Mandela are unable to originate and produce a concept or an idea, so instead, they chose to linger and wait patiently, while others create and construct and build a country, a government infrastructure. then, they infiltrate and seize power.

    In my previous articles, I have written about South Africa now being the AIDS capitol of the world -- the latest statistics from the United Nations show that 55% of its ethnic population is HIV positive. I also spoke of South Africa being the world leader in violent crime. I provided Interpol statistics showing that there are more murders and rapes (per capita) in South Africa, than anywhere else in the world. You may well ask why you don’t see or hear much of this on television or in the press. Simply put, media controls are in place. To cover up their inadequcies, Mandela and Mbeki have created new ways to censor news and hide their disasters. When reporting violent crime, South African journalists need an okay from the local authorities before releasing such stories. A journalist from South Africa who, for obvious reasons shall remain nameless, recently corresponded with me and enquired after the source of my information regarding murder statistics. He claims that South Africa’s official police figures are half those I showed. I provided the information he requested and received the following response:

    "Everything is so ‘Proudly South African’ today we almost cannot mention crime. No more crime reporting in full - just ‘briefs’ tucked away on an obscure page so we don't upset the sensibilities of the brainwashed readers who, we are told, do not want to read ‘bad’ news. We seem to have turned into a nation of ostriches, similar to the Jews even after they had stars sewn on their jackets."

    The world media turns a deaf ear to the dying screams of white South African farmers. Woman and children are being killed and raped by black thugs, who are going after them like rabid dogs and purposely eradicating them or infecting them with the AIDS virus. Some folk abroad say that we had it coming, that we are now witnessing the results of years of suppressed anger following years of segregation and suppression. I totally disagree. We are back to the idea of men being created equal and my argument that this is total hogwash. Men are not created equal – it’s about the fundamental good and evil in man. Take another look at the world leaders and an even closer look at South Africa’s leaders. Look at the ANC government -- you are staring into the very souls of vicious evil demons. Like Adolf Hitler, like Idi Amin, like Saddam Hussein, there are millions of people inflicted with dark evil natures. Natures that could inflict pain and suffering and kill without batting an eye and that are appeased by wreaking terror. Good and evil has no colour. Good and evil has no race or nation to call home. Hitler, Amin, Saddam… Mandela, Mbeki… they are all of the same fibre and they know it. All of the evil ones of this world know each other.

    And his legacy? What will Mandela leave us to remember him by? White South Africans are fearful of Mandela’s inevitable passing. Many are preparing for the vicious campaign of ethnic cleansing that would follow Mandela’s death. This has been promised by the nation’s Communist Party; threats have been made country-wide that, within hours of Mandela’s funeral, there will be a mass mobilization of some 70,000 armed black men, who will be transported to the city centres and implement various "clean-up" operations. These acts of violence would lead to a revolution. One police official said, "Blacks are aware of the plans and often threaten white people, saying that when Mandela dies, they will come back and set the record straight."

    Where will the world press be then?

    Verstek Ant: Feite oor Mandela

    Kwoteer Oorspronklik gepos deur Rooi Jan Bekyk pos
    1. Mandela is afkomstig uit die Transkeise adel, ‘n familie van hoofmanne. Hy het grootgeword in Qunu – ‘n gehuggie in die Transkei.
    2. Hy was die hoof van 'n terroriste organisasie.
    3. Sy grootste twee prestasies was om 27 jaar in die tronk te sit en om ‘n Springbok rugbytrui in 1995 aan te trek.
    4. Hy is gevonnis omdat hy en sy meelopers in 1962 die staat met geweld wou omver werp
    5. Hy het persoonlik die plan vir die Kerkstraat bom goedgekeur
    6. Een van die eerste dinge op sy agenda as president was die vrylating van 9000 gevangenes
    7. Hy is 'n groot bewonderaar van Fidel Castro en kolonel Moeammar Kadaffi
    8. As president het hy hom nie veel met staatsake bemoei het nie; hy was eerder ‘n soort vaderfiguur, die groor versoener (aldus Koos van der Merwe van die IVP)
    9. Hy besit verskeie wonings in die duurste buurte in Johannesburg en die Transkei. Hy onderhou kinders en kleinkinders, ‘n uitgebreide familie van 28. Niemand waag dit om te vra waar sy ooglopende rykdom vandaan nie.
    10. Hy ly sedert 2001 aan prostaat kanker.
    Jy weet Rooi Jan die byvoeging van punt nr. 10 is algemene kennis vir almal.

    Dit feit van punt nr.1 was ek nie baie bekend mee nie.

    Ons het Engeland verslaan en weg gejaag soos sleg honde, om volgens Siener se gesigte nooit weer deur hulle gepla te word nie.

    Die inboorlinge met geen westerse opvoeding, het ons verslaan sonder geweld, eerbare oorlog, of selfs net n brief van weerstand vanaf ons Boere nie.

    Gestraf is ons volk omdat ons toegelaat het dat ongeregtigheid seevier in hierdie land. Dit is nie te laat om terug te keer na God toe nie.

    Ons kinders is ontsteld, maar ken hulle ons God.

    Bid mense, bid dat ons gered word, die wawiel rol, as dit ons beskore is sal die nasie nie die eerste beweging maak nie, maar die Boere jeug se geduld is klaar, dit is ons volwassenis se plig om ons jeug te beskerm.

    Ons kan hulle nie keer nie, so laat ons hulle ondersteun en die nodige voorbereidings tref en seker maak dat ons hele volk nie uitgewis word nie. "Die jeug het allermins die ondervinding om ons te red." Hulle het wel "wil", dit wat van ons weerhou was.

    Hy is eintelik ook 'n baster, omdat sy oupa wit was, so hy ly eintelik aan 'n identiteitskrisis, en weet nie of hy kleurling of swart is nie.
