(Film Review)

This letter was written by Dr Peter Hammond from Australia

The new Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom film presents a selection and distortion of the history of South Africa and Nelson Mandela as the secular humanists of the New World Order would like us to perceive it. The film rushes through the life and times of Nelson Mandela, completely ignoring the Cold War context and threat of Soviet communism on the borders of South Africa at that time. It glosses over the murders and massacres of the Marxists and presents scenes that stereotype whites as racist and blacks as noble revolutionaries only seeking for justice.

Political Propaganda

Producer Anant Singh is recognised as South Africa's preeminent anti-apartheid film producer. Previous productions of Singh include: Place of Weeping, Sarafina!, Red Dust and Cry the Beloved Country. Heavily funded by the South African ANC government and the Nelson Mandela Foundation, this  22 million Pounds authorised biopic presents a selection of incidents from the history of South Africa and the life of Nelson Mandela that will go a long way towards further marketing the Mandela myth.

Emotive Speeches Backed by Orchestras

Shot for spectacle with impressive crowd scenes, the legend of Nelson Mandela is presented with numerous speeches backed with swooning orchestration that climbs to emotional peeks whenever Nelson Mandela addresses any crowd.

English Born Actor Plays Mandela

London born actor, Idris Alba, plays Nelson Mandela from his early days as a smooth lawyer through his recruitment to the African National Congress (ANC), to his arrest, imprisonment, eventual release and election as president. Naomi Harris plays Winnie, the fiery revolutionary love interest and second wife of Nelson Mandela.

Animistic Circumcision Rituals

The film begins with Nelson Mandela as a teenager going through the Xhosa circumcision ritual where witchdoctors prepare youth for initiation rites.
The painting of their naked bodies in white chalk, passing through the smoke of burning everything relating to their childhood and washing off in the river, with full frontal male nudity, is disturbingly depicted.


Next we see the Nelson Mandela character depicted as a smooth lawyer in a three piece suite walking past anachronistic security gates and burglar bars (which did not exist in South Africa in the 1940s).

Shallow Stereotypes

The film is a mythic and heroic story of man against man. In this case it is a black man leading all black people against white people who are depicted as uniformly racist, shallow and stupid. The film makers apparently believed that the best way to exalt Nelson Mandela was to depict all whites as narrow-minded, selfish, racist bigots. The first scene of whites in the movie is of them sipping champagne on a balcony, while the black workers bustle around on the streets below. Numerous fictional incidents and comments are inserted in order to reinforce this stereotype.

Reluctant Revolutionary

The time worn cliché of the reluctant revolutionary is inserted into the story turning Nelson Mandela from a happy-go-lucky smooth lawyer confounding a white woman in the witness box, to a frustrated and angry revolutionary fighting for justice, peace and equality for all.

Police Brutality

Numerous incidents of mindless police brutality are depicted, giving the impression that, without any provocation, or reason, they would beat up, or shoot, black men, women and children in cold blood.

Adulterous Affairs and Abuse

Nelson Mandela's pattern of adulterous relationships and repeated beating of his first wife are briefly touched on in a few fleeting scenes. Then much attention is given to the romance with Winnie, who became his second wife.

Preferring Paganism

In contrast to the repeated, respectful treatment of animism, Christianity is dismissed in a few striking statements and scenes. Mandela states that God only seems to answer the prayers of the Boers, and Winnie declares that there is no God who will save us, we must save ourselves!

Necklace Murders

Later Winnie Mandela gives a revolutionary call to violence from the front of a church, where the cross is obscured. With much anger and expressions of hatred, Winnie Mandela repeatedly calls for using stones, boxes of matches and petrol to 'necklace' the informers and kill the enemy. One brutal burning to death of a supposed informer through the ANC's signature necklace method is depicted. Actually, over 1,000 black people were burnt to death by the brutal necklace murder, so publically promoted by Winnie Mandela. Many of these were elected black town councilors and mayors - but that is not acknowledged in this film, which claims that blacks had no rights, no votes and no elected representatives.

Ignoring the Cold War Context

Significantly there is no mention of the Cold War context and not a scene or a reference to communism, the Soviet Union or the Russian and Cuban troops, at that time engaged in conventional warfare on the border of Angola and South West Africa.

The Missing Victims

No mention is made of the Cuban training in terrorism received by Nelson Mandela. Nor are any of the victims of his bombing campaign depicted. From the film one would get the impression that his armed struggle consisted of nothing more than night time bombings of unoccupied municipal offices and a power station. In fact none of the ANC's car bombings are depicted, not even the Church Street bombing bloodbath. None of the ANC assassinations, such as of Bartholomew Hlopane, are depicted or referred to. Nor the Shell House massacre when Nelson Mandela, as head of the ANC, after his release from prison, ordered his security to open fire on unarmed Zulu protestors belonging to the INKATHA Freedom Party.

The Communist Connection

At no time does one even see a hammer and sickle. The huge Soviet and South African Communist Party flags that Nelson Mandela spoke in front of are nowhere to be seen in this film. Neither are any of the white Russian communist members of the ANC, such as Joe Slovo and Ronnie Kasrils, depicted in any way in this film.

The Making of a New Religion

It is disturbing that this film is due to open across the United States on Christmas Day. With songs of praise and hymns glorifying Nelson Mandela being sung by choirs and taught to school children, we seem to be seeing a beginning of a new religion.

Icon of the New World Order

Certainly Nelson Mandela is the pre-eminent icon and idol of the New World Order. The United Nations General Assembly has even declared 18 July, Nelson Mandela International Day!

Strategic Timing

The timing of this heavily state-funded propaganda film is interesting as the ANC, mired in corruption scandals, is heading into an election year.
Many see the timing of this film as a distraction from the disastrous failures of the ANC, by rewriting history to depict the past in the worst possible light and rally the voters of South Africa behind the party of the revered Nelson Mandela.

Blame Everything on Apartheid

The violence of the ANC is mostly blamed on Winnie Mandela, with Nelson Mandela apparently disapproving. Even when referring to Mandela's divorce from Winnie, Mandela's character blames it on the apartheid government!

The Missing Opposition Parties

There are disturbing and shocking scenes of the black on black violence in the townships with axing, macheting, shooting and hacking of men, women and children, but no explanations given as to who was doing what to whom. At no time is any hint given that there were actually other black political parties in South Africa, such as the INKATHA Freedom Party, with whom the ANC were locked in deadly turf wars.

The Last Word on Everything

Throughout the film, Nelson Mandela dominates the screen and always has the most intelligent and profound things to say. He always has the last word, even in court and in prison. No one else ever seems to have a reply for his dogmatic statements.

A Redemptive Message

After all the depictions of white racism and evil, the film concludes with Nelson Mandela commenting: "If I can forgive them - you can forgive them!"
He asserts "peace is the only way." The film ends with a quote from Mandela's Long Walk to Freedom book: "My country is not meant to be a land of hatred. People are taught to hate and they can be taught to love. Love comes more naturally than hate."

Divorced From the Historical Context

If the message of the film is forgiveness then it is a good message.
However, divorced from the context of the brutal war being waged by the ANC to intimidate the people in the townships, and terrorize farmers and civilians, this film turns communists into heroes and Christians into villains. It also denies the depravity of man, claiming that love (apart from God) is natural and dismisses God as irrelevant.

Presidential Performance

The film wisely stops at Mandela's Presidential Inauguration in May 1994.
That is understandable, because at two and a half hours long, the film drags and sags at times. It is quite episodic. However, it would be relevant to note that the Nelson Mandela presidency was a disappointment and a failure in many ways. Nelson Mandela reintroduced race classification for Affirmative Action, Black Economic Empowerment and job reservation. He legalised pornography and abortion. Violent crime exploded with rape and child abuse increasing 400% during his presidency. The currency imploded and the ANC looted the country of billions of rands through chronic corruption.

The Abortion Holocaust

Over one million babies have been killed, officially, legally, in South Africa, with taxpayer's money, since Nelson Mandela forced through the Termination of Pregnancy Bill 1 February 1997.

Crime Wave

Under Nelson Mandela's presidency, an average of 25,000 people were murdered each year. Yet, to celebrate his birthdays, Nelson Mandela would regularly open prison doors and set many convicted criminals, including armed robbers, murderers and rapists, free. Some of these were murdering and raping within
24 hours of being released. Well over 100,000 people were murdered under Mandela's term as president.

The Growth Industry of Murder

To put this into perspective, in 44 years of apartheid, 18,700 people were killed in politically related violence. This included soldiers, police, terrorists, civilians, necklace murders, rioters - all victims. However, after Mandela became president in 1994, an average of 25,000 people were murdered every year. Over 67,000 whites have been murdered in South Afica since 1994, 3,000 of them farmers. Many fear that this film will incite further race hatred and targeting of whites for murder. Genocide Watch warns that South Africa is already in the Genocidal process stage 6 targeting white Afrikaners for extermination.

Economic Deterioration

In the 1970s, even while facing terrorism, riots and engaged in a border war with the Cubans in Angola, the SA Rand was stronger than the US Dollar. In Mandela's first four years as president, the Rand lost 80% of its value and more than 2.8 million man days were lost to strikes. The national debt doubled under Nelson Mandela's presidency.

Financial Failure

Therefore, under Mandela, even with no war, no sanctions, no riots, no conscription and with massive international aid and investment, the Rand plummeted to R10 to the Dollar. Economic deterioration and sky-rocketing crime marred his presidency. The Economist at the time described Nelson Mandela's presidency as: "a failure."

Do Not Let the Facts Get In the Way of a Good Story
However, we are not meant to allow facts to get in the way of a good story.
So, this Mandela film calls us to forget all these facts and to shelve our pro-life, pro-family, moral convictions and bow before this new idol, sing this politician's praises and effectively burn incense before the image of a new Caesar.

Rewriting History

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom presents a selection and distortion of the history of South Africa and Nelson Mandela as the African National Congress
(ANC) would like us to remember it. This heavily state-funded biopic is politically correct propaganda which markets the Mandela myth by ignoring the Cold War context and threat of Soviet communism on the borders of South Africa at that time. Stereotypical and episodic, it includes numerous obscenities, nudity, occultism, pagan and humanist worldviews, anti-Biblical and anti-Christian sentiments, immorality, adultery, drunkenness, smoking, extreme, brutal and disturbing violence, revisionist history and racism.


Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom markets the Mandela myth by demonising white South Africans, dismissing Christianity and God, promoting paganism, occultism, humanism, socialism, and justifying violent revolution. The film is a mythic and heroic story of man against man. Despite ending with a call for forgiveness and love, the rest of the film seems more inclined to incite hatred and racial stereotyping. It does not allow the facts of history to get in the way of their story of this icon and idol of leftist causes and the socialist New World Order.

Holy Nelson and the Uhuru Cave

Thanks to Hurricane from: topix.com
At last: the book on Holy Nelson that reveals all.

  • (When reading this story it should be recalled that The USA, Canada, Amnesty International and many other organizations had classified Nelson Mandela as a terrorist. Mandela was prevented from travelling to the USA or Canada for many years before the restrictions on his person were lifted.
  • By the way, Mandela was genuinely given a new Mercedes... no charge.)


Nelson and the Uhuru Cave.


MANY, many years ago there lived in South Africa a little black man called Nelson. When he was young, he was called Little Nelson. Little Nelson was poor, and survived by herding cattle and goats in and around his family’s kraal. One day when he was out in the veld watching his family’s animals, he saw forty naked black men coming toward him. Fearing they might be robbers, he climbed a tree to hide. Near the tree there was a steep bank formed of solid rock. When the forty naked black men came to the rock, one, who seemed to be the chief, took out a AK47 rifle, shot one of the other black men dead, and said the words, "Open, Uhuru!" Instantly a door opened in the rock, and they all passed through, and the door closed after them.

Little Nelson stayed in the tree, and after a while the door opened again, and the forty black men, at this stage down to only thirty-nine, came out. They were now all dressed in fine suits, and were all loaded up with gold and silver and great bags of money. The Chief closed the door by once again taking his AK47 rifle and shooting another man dead, saying, "Shut, Uhuru!". Then they walked away.

Little Nelson was very impressed with all this. Because he was also naked, and he would have liked nothing better than to wear a nice fine suit and have lots of money. When the black men were out of sight, Little Nelson came down, and, going up to the rock, said, "Open, Uhuru!" But the door refused to open, because Little Nelson did not have a rifle, and there was no one to shoot anyway.

Deep in thought, Little Nelson walked home that evening. He did not tell the other people in his kraal, but he promised himself to one day have an AK47 rifle and shoot other people dead, too, so he could also get a nice fine suit to wear and have lots of money. He knew that if he told them, they would know what he wanted, making it more difficult for him to shoot them and get all those riches in the Uhuru cave later. So Little Nelson kept the secret of the Uhuru cave to himself and carried on tending his family’s cattle and goats for the time being.

When Little Nelson became Big Nelson, he went away to the City of the White Man, since he realised that at that stage in South Africa only the White Man had what he wanted. There, he learnt to become a lawyer, because he knew that lawyers get into contact with terrorists, and terrorists have AK47 rifles, and with Ak47 rifles you can shoot other people, like Little Nelson, now Big Nelson, wanted to in order to get his hands on all that lovely money in the Uhuru cave. And soon he hit the jackpot, when he met some white terrorists, who were busy collecting AK47 rifles and many other lovely gadgets to kill and maim people, like landmines and explosives. Big Nelson eagerly joined their innocent little terror group in order to obtain the means to kill people. He did not really care for his fellow-black people, like his white terrorist friends pretended to care. What he cared about was to have a weapon, so he could use it to get a nice suit and lots of money from the Uhuru cave.

But just as Big Nelson and his lovable terrorist friends got into the swing of getting all the lovely weaponry to terrorise and kill, the Big White Chief, Baas Hendrik, found out about them and arrested Big Nelson. Nelson's white friends, who had been only too glad to find a stupid little black man like Nelson to do all the dirty terror work and take the rap if things go wrong, ran off overseas, leaving Big Nelson to face the White Man’s court. There, Big Nelson was sentenced to life imprisonment, and shipped off to a little island called Robben Island.

On Robben Island, where Big Nelson stayed for many, many years, Big Nelson became Holy Nelson. Realising that it was not so easy to get hold of an AK47 rifle and shoot people without facing the White Man’s court, he gladly cooperated with a new order by all the cronies and secret backers of his former white terrorist friends, who were now organising weapons and bombs from overseas. This new order meant for a black man to become a Holy Man, for the many stupid white people in South Africa and overseas to admire and one day accept as their Big Black Baas. Once there was such a Big Black Baas, and there was no Big White Baas anymore, the AK47 rifles could come in freely, and the Uhuru cave could be plundered to their heart’s content. So Big Nelson, now Holy Nelson, stayed on his little island and became holier and holier and holier, as the years went by. Near the end of his time, he had become so holy that he even fooled the Big White Baas ruling at the time, who was quite a bit less clever than Baas Hendrik, who had been killed by Holy Nelson’s white cronies long ago.

So one day the last Big White Baas let Holy Nelson out of his little cell on Robben Island, telling his fellow-whites that they had to ‘reform’. What he actually meant, of course, was that he wanted to make Holy Nelson the first Big Black Baas, so Holy Nelson would be thankful and give him a small part of all that lovely boodle in the Uhuru cave. And Holy Nelson agreed, knowing that once he was the Big Black Baas, he could do what he liked.

So it came to pass that Holy Nelson became the first Big Black Baas. Most of the dumb whiteys believed the last Big White Baas’ story about the necessity of so-called ‘reforms’, not realising this meant their hand-over to the big Black Baas and his henchmen. For the inauguration of Holy Nelson as First Big Black Baas, the country was very gay; many strangers from all parts of the globe arrived to gloat over the hand-over of all the whites to a black Baas. And so Holy Nelson ruled for a few years, before handing over to the Second Big Black Baas. And the Second Big Black Baas rules until he officially hands over to the Third Big Black Baas, and so on ad infinitum.

And since Holy Nelson became the First Big Black Baas, he and every black Baas were able to get into the Uhuru cave to loot and plunder as much as possible. Holy Nelson and his successors made sure they were never short of AK47’s and all sorts of killing gadgets again, and they shot and killed thousands and thousands of innocent people, both black and white. This way, they built up such a nice stock of killings that whenever any black said ‘Open Uhuru!”, the Uhuru cave opened up immediately .to let him in. Once inside, he or she could pick and chose from gold and silver, and funds and shares, and bags and bags of wonderful money, and even brand-new Mercs and BMW’s. So far, the huge Uhuru cave has not let anyone down. But voices have gone up to warn that, sooner or later, there won’t be many people left to shoot dead, and the Uhuru cave will become closed again. Then many of the black Base might have to get out of their fine suits, put on their riempies, and go back to tending cattle and goats. If by that time they will still be able to remember how to look after cattle and goats that is....
-The End.

  • Very good story Hurricane, except that it took me a while after I had finished it to realize that it might not all be true. After all, Winnie would have emptied the Uhuru cave long before Holy Nelson left his fine cell on Robben Island.

Nelson Mandela and Freedom Day

Today the world celebrates Freedom day and respectfully worships its icon, Holy Nelson Mandela.

The moral lesson in the global Mandela-mania is, of course, that before Mandela became president of South Africa nobody was free, except for the minority White racists (who all hated Blacks and exploited them endlessly). After the second coming of Mandela that all changed and now everybody is free so logically we should all celebrate Freedom Day.
We are saved. Hallelujah !
Holy Nelson has entered the lofty ranks of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Jesus Christ and mere mortals such as ourselves should all genuflect and be grateful (and ashamed to be White... especially if you are a South African White.)

Just in case my subtle sarcasm escaped notice, it should in all honesty be stated that this blog has a different perspective on Holy Nelson and what constitutes "freedom".

Propaganda has it that the entire South African debacle was White-Black conflict caused by the Whites and their hateful Apartheid racist policies that impoverished the poor downtrodden Black majority.

Truth, so it goes, looks different when observed from different angles, at different times.
I, the author of this blog, was in the army during those Apartheid years. Three years I spent in the South African army, dedicated to fighting communists who were infiltrating our country's borders. The Soviet Union  supplied neighbouring countries such as Angola and Mozambique with military hardware. Black recruits were trained in Russia, East Germany and other communist states.
White South African soldiers fought alongside Black volunteers who also desired to prevent a communist takeover of South Africa. We had all seen the terrible consequences of communism in Africa and had no desire to see it repeated in South Africa.

The astute reader will by now have picked up that the political situation was not a simplistic White vs Black problem. The majority of the Black population had no desire to embrace communism, as did the majority of Whites. Some Blacks and some Whites, however, supported Communism and embraced the ANC as the logical vehicle to implement communism.

"Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro" - Nelson Mandela

This implies that the ANC first had to persuade the peaceful, uninvolved Black population to support its cause. At last we are full circle back to Holy Nelson Mandela, who had co-created the terrorist organisation Mkhonto we Sizwe (MK).
During the Rivonia trials Mandela and his co-accused faced charges of sabotage, including deeds of sabotage, committing of illegal deeds, canvassing persons for training in warfare, manufacture and use of explosives with the aim to commit violence and cause destruction (altogether 153 acts of violence were listed) and conspiracy to engage in guerrilla-warfare with the aid of foreign armies.  Plans included the manufacture of 48 000 land mines and large quantities of hand grenades, pipe, petrol and bottle bombs.   These were to be unscrupulously applied; camouflaged in the most innocent packages like fruit boxes, coffee and jam tins and placed in soft spots like footpaths and entrances to gardens, with the aim to achieve maximum deaths, maiming and destruction.

These weapons were ultimately used in terror attacks where mainly Black people were killed or mutilated.
The most terrible intimidation against Black people was the "Necklace" murder, whereby a (non-ANC, invariably Black) victim was bound with a car tyre around his neck, doused with a flammable liquid (Diesel or oil burns longer and better than petrol) and set alight as a warning to others who opposed the ANC.

The child above (Black) was a "necklace" victim. This intimidation was wildly successful and the ANC top brass encouraged the practice, including Mandela's then wife, Winnie Mandela.

"With our boxes of matches and our necklaces we shall liberate this country" - Winnie Mandela.

So much for Mandela the man of "Peace"
Rather we should today be remembering Mandela the violent communist rabble-rouser.

Church street bomb carnage - Nelson Mandela created the terrorist group called "Mkhonto we sizwe" (MK for short). MK murdered far more black people than white, and far more civilians than police or military, as in the Church street bomb shown above.

Holy Nelson's last act of overt violence came long after his release from prison, when he was already de-facto in charge of the political process and working from within parliament.

This child was an ANC landmine victim.
Smuggling in thousands of landmines was a Mandela initiative.

Zulus opposed to the ANC organised a protest march outside ANC headquarters "Shell House". Zulu tempers were aroused because more than 300 Zulu leaders had been assassinated by the ANC in the runup to the "free" elections.
Shell house was locked down. There were no windows at ground floor level and doors were bolted and protected by armed security guards. There was no conceivable danger to ANC personnel inside.

Nelson Mandela personally gave the order to "Shoot To Kill", as he freely admitted in parliament.
From windows high above the marching Zulus, the ANC "ex-terrorists" opened fire on the Zulu crowd below. This became known as the "Shell House Massacre", as ordered by that paragon of peace, Holy Nelson Mandela.
Wikipedia mentions the massacre in a subdued article as follows:

  • "ANC security guards opened fire, killing nineteen people. At the time, guards claimed that the IFP supporters were storming the building, or that they had received a tip-off that this was planned. The Nugent Commission of Inquiry into the killings rejected this explanation. The commission's conclusion was that the shooting by ANC guards was unjustified.
  • This incident reflected the rising tensions between the ANC and IFP, which had begun in the 1980s in KwaZulu-Natal and had then spread to other provinces in the 1990s. The IFP claimed that the ANC was intent on undermining traditional authorities and the power of Zulu Chiefs; the ANC saw it as a power struggle as the demise of apartheid was finalised"


The above cartoon is based on the fact that Mandela, when President of South Africa, was not permitted to enter the United States as they had declared him a terrorist. Amnesty International had done the same.


The following comment is from a neutral website:
"So there we have it. Mandela. Blew up a few buildings, went to prison for years, came out and destroyed his country's economy. Quite a record. Ironically, he was probably responsible for more deaths through his disastrous stewardship of the economy than Umkhonto we Sizwe ever managed to knock off during the armed struggle."

Apartheid existed in various forms throughout human history. The first "Blacks Keep Out" signs were drawn in hieroglyphics along Egypt's southern border with the Nubians (Blacks).
By the latter half of the twentieth century any fool could see that this would change. South Africa took a little longer than the USA to change and this provided the SA Communist Party with the edge it required. It also bestowed the convicted terrorist, Nelson Mandela, with de-facto sainthood.
Holy Nelson  has now receivedover 250 awards, including the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Soviet Order of Lenin.

Meanwhile back in South Africa poverty and unemployment have skyrocketed. The corrupt ANC leadership have become rich beyond their dreams while more than a million Whites have fled the country. Thousands of White farmers have been tortured and murdered while Mandela and the ANC smugly claiom that their revolution song: "Kill the Boer, kill the Farmer" is not racist and does not condone violence against Whites.

Perhaps it is better that Mandela personally close the subject in this YouTube video:

Pardon us cynics if we do not celebrate Freedom Day. We have had more freedom than we can stand.
