Original Mandela Autobiography Advocates Violence, Communism

Before being sanitized by a “ghostwriter” who now works in the Obama administration, the recently released original manuscript of South African revolutionary Nelson Mandela’s autobiography exposed the widely celebrated figure as a self-proclaimed violent enemy of “democracy.”

The first Long Walk to Freedom manuscript also reveals Mandela’s little-known support of violence and terror to advance communism. Largely ignored thus far, the document paints a picture of Mandela that is entirely at odds with the myths of a peace-loving political prisoner propagated by the establishment, communists, and the Western media.

After the revolutionary’s death, the ruling African National Congress and its South African Communist Party coalition partner both released statements officially confirming what had long been suspected by credible analysts. Mandela was not only a communist, he was a member of the Soviet-backed party’s decision-making Central Committee. With the release early this year of the communist leader’s unedited Long Walk to Freedom autobiography, even his most ardent supporters may have trouble defending many of Mandela’s violent and radical views.

“Unquestionably, my sympathies lay with Cuba [during the 1962 Soviet missile crisis],” Mandela wrote in the original, expressing fervent support for one of the most ruthless mass-murdering communist autocracies to ever plague humanity. “The ability of a small state to defend its independence demonstrates in no uncertain terms the superiority of socialism over capitalism.” In another excerpt from the heretofore unreleased version, Mandela said he considered the U.S. brand of “imperialism” to be “the most loathsome and contemptible.”

On the Marxist principle of “dialectical materialism” — a key foundation of every murderous communist regime’s terror — Mandela said: “I embraced it without hesitation.” The newly unveiled document also confirmed again that despite popular myths about Mandela remaining a “peaceful” and “moderate” activist until the 1960 Sharpeville massacre, he had actually been plotting violent revolution since at least 1953, perhaps even earlier.

In his unsanitized memoirs, for example, the revolutionary reveals that he sent a “comrade” to seek weapons and support for the then-officially “non-violent” ANC from the mass-murdering communist regime in Beijing. The original draft also reveals the fact that even Mandela acknowledged that the anti-communist white-led Apartheid government had not isolated, beaten, tortured, or killed a single political detainee until the murderous communist bombing campaigns began in late 1961. Countless innocent civilians were killed in the ANC-SACP terrorist onslaught.

Indeed, to advance communist tyranny, Mandela was more than willing to use violence, as other scrubbed sections from the original manuscript reveal clearly. For instance, Mandela wrote that he felt “ever more strongly” that South African whites needed another “Isandlwana,” a reference to an 1879 battle in which Zulu warriors slaughtered over 1,300 British troops. Incredibly, he seemed to glorify murder and mayhem, writing that soon, “the sweet air will smell of gunfire, elegant buildings will crash down and streets will be splashed with blood.”
