M ‘n’ M Kibbles
M ‘n’ M Kibbles
M ‘n’ M kibbles—not the candy that “melts in your mouth, not in your hand”—but Commie Candy, as in Mandela, the Marxist, or Madiba, the Marxist. Either way, it’s the same person: Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, Tata Madiba.
But oh, oh, shame on you, Cheryl! You’re not being a good little politically correct girl! But Cheryl retrieved some of these little tidbits “from the horse’s mouth,” the “mare” being the official website of the South African Communist Party, as referenced below.
Earlier this week, Cheryl sent the following e-letter to Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), as well as to the Representative from her Congressional district-of-residence. She is now eagerly awaiting replies (but not holding her breath):
According to the “Roll Call 218” blog [http://blogs.rollcall.com/218/house-to-take-up-resolution-honoring-mandela-this-week/], the House of Representatives will bring up a sense-of-Congress resolution to honor “the life, accomplishments and legacy of Nelson Mandela [while] expressing condolences on his passing.” I'm assuming that this resolution would be sent on to the Senate when passed.
Doesn't the US Congress have more important things to do than eulogize a member of the South African Communist Party? On its official website the SACP stated, in part: "At his arrest in August 1962, Nelson Mandela was not only a member of the then underground South African Communist Party, but was also a member of our Party’s Central Committee. To us as South African communists, Cde Mandela shall forever symbolise the monumental contribution of the SACP in our liberation struggle. The contribution of communists in the struggle to achieve the South African freedom has very few parallels in the history of our country. After his release from prison in 1990, Cde Madiba became a great and close friend of the communists till his last days…" See http://www.sacp.org.za/main.php?ID=4151 .
Clinching his fist in a "victory salute," Mandela's photo appeared on the cover of the 2nd Quarter 1990 issue (No. 121) of The African Communist: Journal of the South African Communist Party. To view this photo, see http://www.trevorloudon.com/2013/12/south-african-communists-finally-admit-nelson-mandelas-party-leadership-role/ . Yes, Mandela made a large contribution to the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, but he did not exert himself to uplift that country once it was free--it's a mess, even having moral evils such as abortion enshrined in its constitution. Furthermore, Mandela frequently criticized the US and was quite cozy with dictators such as Gaddafi and Castro.
"Fidel Castro and Nelson Mandela developed such a close relationship that it’s impossible to forget when speaking about the African leader in Latin America. The triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959 inspired a young Mandela. Later in life, Mandela credited Cuba's military support to Angola in the 1970s and 1980s with playing a role in debilitating South Africa's government enough to result in the legalization of his party, the African National Congress, in 1990." See http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/27/nelson-mandela-fidel-castro_n_3509710.html, which cites http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20040415/cleisure/cleisure2.html .
The Rev. Dr. Peter Hammond, a minister of the Episcopal Church of Sudan and founder of Frontline Fellowship and Africa Christian Nation, who has worked for nearly 30 years assisting persecuted Christians in Africa, had an interview with Mandela that resulted in a 13-year audit of Hammond's Christian ministry. Dr. Hammond asserts that Mandela was a Marxist who advocated abortion, pornography, homosexuality and legalizing prostitution. Dr. Hammond tells of his experience with Mandela in two video clips which can be viewed at http://www.wnd.com/2013/12/nelson-mandela-was-a-radical-marxist/ .
In my opinion, the Congress of the United States of America should NOT honor a Marxist who founded a terrorist organization known for bombing public places such as railway stations and supermarket parking lots!
After the above letter was written, additional confirming documentation has been published, including—believe it or not—in The Guardian, the UK’s virtual equivalent to the New York Times:
“The Mandela coverage and the banality of goodness” at http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/10/mandela-coverage-banality-of-goodness
“Mandela has been sanitised by hypocrites and apologists” at http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/11/mandela-sanitised-hypocrites-apologists-apartheid
“Mandela the Communist”
Nelson Mandela was a Communist. Although most people think that is not important, it is the very essence of who he was. He never denounced Communism. He never apologized for embracing Communism. He never exposed the soul-destroying nature of Communism. In this Mandela was like Mugabe, the horrific Marxist leader of Zimbabwe, though he was not grossly evil like Mugabe.
Was Mandela a Communist because he needed Communism to end the Afrikaner white rule of South Africa? No. Communism was not needed to fight the very real racist legacy of European colonialism.
In the former British colony of Rhodesia, Bishop Muzorewa in 1979 was elected prime minister of Zimbabwe, and this black Methodist clergyman was accepted by whites and blacks. In 1980, the Communist Mugabe, using extreme violence and intimidation, forced new elections, which he won, and Mugabe, the butcher, has been in power for the last thirty-three years.
Bishop Muzorewa represented all that we could have wanted in a black political leader. He visited Israel in 1983 and urged Zimbabwe to establish diplomatic relations with that nation. Muzorewa went on a hunger strike when Mugabe began driving out all political opposition.
Communism is also one of the worst things to ever happen to Africa, and as Muzorewa showed, it was utterly unnecessary to black liberation. Indeed, the vast majority of the victims of black African Communist thugs have been their black non-Communist opponents, as tormented nations like Angola, Ethiopia, and Mozambique have shown. . . .[More at http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/../2013/12/the_communist_mandela.html]
Betcha won’t see or hear such succulent morsels in the main-lamestream media (more M ‘n’ M kibbles).

P.S.: The above essay (in only slightly different form) was sent to an email list several hours ago. Thus far, only one unfavorable reply has been received. It’s from a Sibling-in-Christ who is a member of the same church with which I have been affiliated since September 2001:
You need help. You are so out there you need help. How can you hate soooooo much. As I said before take me off your stupid insane political hate list. You need to put your time into scripture. Those pages speak truth. Truth is what we need. I can't make it any clearer. Take me off your mail.
Alas, I thought I had already removed that person’s address from the list to which I occasionally send politically incorrect information. . . . My initial reaction brought some specific passages of Scripture to mind, e.g.:
Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth? (Galatians 4:16, ESV)
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:31-32, ESV)
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, ESV)
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. (John 17:17, ESV)
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,…assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus,… (Ephesians 4:15, 21, ESV)
10 As the truth of Christ is in me, this boasting of mine will not be silenced in the regions of Achaia.
11 And why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do!
12 And what I do I will continue to do, in order to undermine the claim of those who would like to claim that in their boasted mission they work on the same terms as we do.
13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.
14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
15 So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. (2 Corinthians 11:10-15, ESV)

I’ve been a serious student of the Bible for 50 years. Slightly more than 50 years ago, I wrote my very first term paper in high school. That research report was on communism. Little did I realize at that time, but I was essentially searching for accurate answers to a question that Stanley Ann Dunham, mother of Barack Hussein Obama, II, reportedly posed at a similar age, i.e., "What's wrong with communism?"
I certainly haven't mastered the Bible or communism, but I have learned a thing or two about both. I am thoroughly convinced that communism constitutes one of the many angel-of-light disguises (see 2 Cor. 11:14, quoted above) that Satan uses to delude Christians. I am very sorry that I have offended the aforementioned Sibling-in-Christ; however, I am not yet willing to retract what I have posted about Nelson Mandela's affiliation with the South African Communist Party because I am convinced of the truthfulness of the SACP's admission on its official website.
Is speaking or writing the truth synonymous with “hatred,” dear Sibling-in-Christ??? My journalistic sarcasm is not intended as an ad hominem attack on Mandela; rather, my pointed pen is directed toward the major media and VIP-elites of all major political parties who are addictively paralyzed, floundering, and intoxicated in political correctness.
Iron sharpens iron, and one person sharpens the wits of another. (Proverbs 27:17, NRSV)
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another. (Galatians 5:14-15, ESV)
Dear Siblings-in-Christ, whoever or wherever you might be, let us not bite, devour, or consume one another—lest the Devil be deliriously delighted.

UPDATE: Late-afternoon, Friday, the 13th
Here’s an article that I serendipitously spied just a few minutes ago:
"The Mandela Myth," by Rex Van Schalkwyk, posted December 12, 2013, 11:23pm
Amid the orgy of international lamentation that has followed the death of Nelson Mandela on December 5, 2013, the question is whether he possessed some or all of the superhuman qualities that have been attributed to him....
It is now 14 years since Mandela left office, and it is no doubt true that distance lends enchantment to the view. It is also true that a determination to not be enchanted may corrupt the view. To avoid any suggestion of cynicism, the issues dealt with in this note are based not on current opinions, but on contemporaneous records of the facts that emerged during Mandela's presidency. The information relied upon is contained in a book written by me and published in 1998 under the title One Miracle Is Not Enough. The book is fully referenced and indexed for purposes of verification. In some cases, extensive quotes will be taken from the book…. [More at http://www.caseyresearch.com/articles/the-mandela-myth ]
