Newly discovered manuscripts prove the extent of the fraud perpetrated on naive liberals worldwide, in portraying Marxist terrorist Nelson Mandela as a campaigner for “democracy”. Part of the truth is revealed in a Spectator article this week by award winning South African author Rian Malan.
Mandela was a member of the central committee of the South African Communist Party, and leader of the terrorist wing of the black nationalist African National Congress, when he was imprisoned for terror offences in 1962. In 1976 fellow communist cadres smuggled out the manuscript of a revolutionary tract written in prison by Mandela. Yet this was not published immediately: the text was heavily edited by a New York journalist called Rick Stengel, before being published as a suitably anodyne and democratic autobiography, which became a worldwide best seller when published in 1994 as Long Walk to Freedom.
The legend was burnished further when Long Walk to Freedom was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster in 2013, starring Idris Elba – London-born son of African immigrants – as Mandela. Elba won a Golden Globe best actor nomination.
As Malan points out, Stengel suppressed or distorted important aspects of Mandela’s text, in addition to disguising his Marxist ideology. The world’s liberals were led to believe that Mandela had been a peaceful campaigner for black civil rights until the so-called Sharpeville Massacre in 1960, when South African police opened fire on black rioters. In fact Mandela had been plotting an armed uprising at least seven years before Sharpeville! The future Nobel Prize winner sent a fellow cadre to Communist China in 1953 to solicit weapons for the supposedly non-violent ANC.
“I was bitter and felt ever more strongly that SA whites need another Isandlwana,” wrote the peace-loving Mandela – referring to the notorious slaughter of more than 2,000 British soldiers and civilians in 1879 by a force of over 20,000 Zulu warriors.
Ghost writer Stengel – who was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford in the late 1970s and managing editor of Time magazine from 2006 to 2013 – has been Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy in President Obama’s State Department since 2013. The job involves coordinating media and propaganda efforts to promote American policy worldwide. It is not known whether presentation of Obama’s policies has involved similar deceptions to those practised by Stengel in covering up Nelson Mandela’s Marxism and terrorism.
