Winnie and Nelson Mandela; statue of Mandela in London

Nick Griffin tells FWM: Mandela statue in London ‘must be melted down’

The statue of Nelson Mandela in London’s Parliament Square should be removed and melted down to remember the victims of communist rule, Nick Griffin, leader of the British Unity Party has said. In comments to FWM, Griffin noted that "statues have become weapons of political warfare in recent years".

    The British Unity Party is led by Cambridge-educated Griffin, who has been a nationalist activist since 1974, and former leader of the British National Party from 1999 to 2014. Griffin has been the most outspoken Member of the European Parliament (2009-2014) and the most successful and experienced nationalist leader in British political history.

    “At present, it’s a one-way street, with the Marxist left pressing for the removal of statues to Confederate war heroes in the USA, Boer freedom fighters in South Africa and ‘Dead White Males’ in general in Britain,” Griffin told FWM.

    “It won’t happen any time soon but, one day, British patriots will remove the statue of the Communist terrorist Nelson Mandela from the plinth in Westminster, central London. Personally, I would like to see it melted down and made into a tableau depicting a child victim of Britain’s Boer war concentration camps side-by-side with six-month old Natasha Glenny, the little girl murdered in Rhodesia by Marxist terrorists supported by the British political and media establishments.

    “This would put into bronze a valuable reminder for the British about the evils they did, or encouraged, in Southern Africa,” Griffin said.

    Meanwhile, David Furness, a British National Party (BNP) spokesman, told RT that the statue of Mandela in London’s Parliament Square should be removed because the anti-apartheid leader was not British, did nothing for the UK, and was a violent terrorist.

    Mandela had received training in terrorism through Islamic jihad-cells in Algeria in 1961 (Jabhet Al-Tahrir Al-Watani) and was responsible for many murders of innocent women and children. He was arrested and jailed for his terrorist acts, issuing orders to kill white people merely for being white.

    Umkhonto we Sizwe or MK, the military wing of the Marxist African National Congress (ANC), was in fact established by its commander, Nelson Mandela, to launch a war of terror against South Africa’s whites. It was presented in the mainstream media as a “war against racists”, liberating blacks from “white oppression”.

    Furness said the bronze statue of the late president of South Africa should be removed from Parliament Square and placed in the South African embassy. Calls from the British Unity Party and the BNP come amid a growing frustration with the removal of “racist” public symbols in the US, including a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a park in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    There have been similar shrill anti-white calls in the UK for the removal of Lord Nelson’s statue, in Trafalgar Square, because he is was “a white supremacist”.

    The lyrics from the anthem of Mandela’s creation, MK, or “Spear of the Nation” actually leave little to the imagination: ”Go safely Umkhonto. Umkhonto we Sizwe. We the members of the Umkhonto have pledged ourselves to kill them — kill the whites.”

    Mandela repeated the refrain about killing white Boer farmers, together with Ronnie Kasrils, a Soviet-trained terrorist who helped Mandela found MK. Kasrils was a member of the Central Committee of the South African Communist Party. Mandela’s struggle essentially gave anti-white Communists dominion over the country, increased violence and rape exponentially and did little to relieve poverty despite draconian anti-white affirmative action laws.

    As a founding member of Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) or Spear of the Nation, the armed wing of the African National Congress (ANC), Mandela was arrested in 1962 for conspiring to overthrow the South African government. He was given a life sentence on Robben Island. Released 27 years later following the “dismantling of apartheid”, he was elected president of South Africa in 1994 even though he had directed the terror campaign from his prison cell.

    Griffin’s party

    Western liberal journalists have wanted to bleach Mandela’s history of terror against whites into a noble “people’s war” against an “evil, murderous, racist regime” but the ANC also killed thousands of moderate blacks. The Shell House Massacre remains the largest stain on Nelson Mandela’s reputation, with eight deaths recorded. In fact many more died in and around Johannesburg. At least nineteen died downtown, and as many as fifty-five people were murdered throughout the Witwatersrand on one day.

    In the early 1990s, when political killings reached unprecedented heights in South Africa, the transition to a non-racial democracy had already been decided and all major apartheid laws had already been repealed, but on 28 March of 1994, Mandela gave the direct order for ANC security guards to open fire on rival Inkatha members at Shell House, fearing that he might lose the coming election.

    Eyewitnesses say the Inkatha marchers were peaceful, merely chanting and singing. A year after the massacre, Nelson Mandela was heckled when he told Parliament that he had given the order to “defend” Shell House, and to “kill, if necessary”.

    Moreover, black IFP/Inkatha supporters, called the ANC out for being generally destructive, disruptive and dominated by unruly youth, John Perlman, a senior writer for the Independent group had noted. “I used to be a UDF member,” a young black man told Perlman, “but I changed because we were just burning buses and throwing stones. The children are in charge of politics, but in the IFP, we are united and disciplined.”

    Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi

    South Africa’s “miracle” transition is a fiction to cover up a less palatable reality. In 1975 Inkatha was established by Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi. Inkatha disagreed with the ANC’s principal strategies of armed struggle and economic sanctions and sought to end apartheid by other non-violent means. It soon commanded substantial support, making it an important internal rival to the ANC. The ANC then set forth to kill most of its rival’s prominent members. By some estimates 20 000 blacks consisting of Inkatha/IFP supporters were murdered by ANC thugs, while Mandela was making sanctimonious speeches about “peace” and “brotherhood” to an adoring international audience.

    The “people’s war” Mandela launched, began on 3 September 1984 with a surge of violence in Sebokeng and other townships in the Vaal Triangle which lasted a month and cost the lives of four local councillors along with 60 other people. Mandela’s wife, Winnie, oversaw the day-to-day necklacing of black dissenters while her husband Nelson directed the vicious ANC campaign from prison. By the end of 1989, some 5 500 people had been killed in political violence, some 700 of them by the terrible and cruel necklace method.

    The MK alone is thought to have perpetrated 150 public acts of terrorism and violence that killed 63 people and injured 483, but tens of thousands of innocent anti-communist blacks perished at the hands of the ANC, mainly in the province of KwaZulu Natal.

    Mandela should be considered a terrorist who “killed many people”, Furness said. “It’s very inappropriate to have a statue of a terrorist in Parliament Square,” he said, suggesting such a “bad example” could legitimize terrorism. “[It would make people think] ‘I can set off some bombs, get what I want, and eventually it will all be forgiven,’” Furness added.

    Mandela’s statue was erected in 2007 by then Mayor of London Ken Livingstone. Livingstone told RT Mandela was one of “the greatest figures of the twentieth century who fought against the worst forms of racism”.

    Necklace killing ordered by the Mandelas

    The former Mayor of London added: “He was completely right to fight for the freedom of enslaved black South Africans. Anyone should be free to struggle for their own freedom.”

    But even the left-leaning Amnesty International never accepted Mandela as a political prisoner. They asserted that he was not a political prisoner but had committed numerous violent crimes and had had a fair trial and a reasonable sentence after he himself had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing campaigns, which entailed planting bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Mandela’s MK terrorists.

    South African President PW Botha had, on a number of occasions, offered Nelson Mandela freedom from prison, if he would only renounce terrorist violence. This Mandela refused to do.

    The US State and Defense departments dubbed Mandela’s political party, the African National Congress, a terrorist group, and Mandela’s name remained on the US terrorism watch list until 2008.

    In January 1989, the US Defense Department included the ANC in an official publication, “Terrorist Group Profiles,” with a foreword by President-elect George HW Bush. The ANC was listed among 52 of the “world’s more notorious terrorist groups”.

    The report cited 13 attacks during the 1980s, many of which targeted government facilities, including a military command headquarters, an unfinished nuclear plant, a courthouse and SASOL, the government-owned coal-to-oil conversion facility. The biggest terror attack was a car-bombing of the South African Air Force headquarters in Pretoria that killed 19 and wounded 200 on 20 May 1983, most of them innocent civilians who were walking on the sidewalk in downtown Pretoria.

    In April 2008, during the last year of the George W. Bush administration, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told a Senate committee, however, that her department had to issue waivers for ANC members to travel to the United States.

      Good to see that the truth is finally being realized for the first time. I am currently a white Boer living in South Africa and the double standards are clearly visible.

      Yesterday the FF+ wanted to have a moment of silence for a white couple who got murders on their farm in the Mpumalanga area. The ANC and the EFF mocked and laughed at the notion. They do not mind farmers being killed for sport. Here is the Facebook article (it is in Afrikaans).

      The other day, Robert Mugabe said that they will not prosecute those who killed farmers during the land grabs in Zimbabwe.

      Remove those damn statues. We have suffered enough.

    • Mandela repeated the refrain about killing white Boer farmers, together with Ronnie Kasrils, a Soviet-trained terrorist who helped Mandela found MK. Kasrils was a member of the Central Committee of the South African Communist Party. Mandela’s struggle essentially gave anti-white Communists dominion over the country, increased violence and rape exponentially and did little to relieve poverty despite draconian anti-white affirmative action laws.

      Ronny Kasrils’ grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Latvia and Lithuania who fled from Czarist pogroms* at the end of the 19th century. He is the son of Rene (born Cohen) and Isidore Kasrils. His father was a factory salesman. His mother worked as a shop assistant prior to her marriage. Kasrils matriculated at King Edward VII School in Johannesburg. He subsequently became a script writer for films in Johannesburg from 1958 to 1960 before accepting a position as a television and film director for Lever Brothers’ advertising division in Durban from 1960 to 1962. […] he joined the African National Congress (ANC) in 1960, becoming secretary of the Congress of Democrats in Natal in 1961, the same year he joined the South African Communist Party. In 1962, he received a five-year banning order prohibiting him from public speaking. He was a founding member of Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) as member of Natal Regional Command during the same year. He became the commander of Natal Regional Command in 1963. He underwent military training in 1964 in Odessa, USSR and at the end of 1965 was sent to London to work for the movement there. During this time Kasrils worked with Yusuf Dadoo, Joe Slovo and Jack Hodgson and they formed a special committee (1966–76) to develop underground activities in South Africa from the United Kingdom. During this time he trained various people including Raymond Suttner, Jeremy Cronin, Ahmed Timol, Alex Moumbaris, Tim Jenkins and Dave and Sue Rabkin, with the aim of establishing underground propaganda units in South Africa. He served the ANC and was based in London, Luanda, Maputo, Swaziland, Botswana, Lusaka and Harare. Kasrils eventually became a member of MK’s High Command and was appointed as Chief of MK Intelligence in 1983. Kasrils also served on the ANC’s Politico-Military Council from 1985 to 1989 and worked underground for the ANC in South Africa during Operation Vula from 1990 to 1991. He went on to head the ANC’s campaign section from 1991 to 1994.

      *The truth of the matter is quite the opposite of the official history. The violence in western Russia at this time had several qualities in common: few Jews were killed; Jews were almost always the aggressors; and Jews were far better armed than the local police in these areas. One of the more important reasons for the creation of this myth is to cover over the crimes of the liberal and leftist movements in Russia. Between 1905 and 1906, the Socialist Revolutionaries murdered 15 governors and mayors, 267 security officials and 12 bishops. That is only one single leftist party in just one year. All told, those killed and injured by leftist terror between 1905 and 1907 is more than 20,000 and the majority of the terrorists were Jews. The pogroms were a cover story for this violence.

      From the 1960s, the apartheid government of Hendrik Verwoerd and onwards had two main opponents. One was a Jew named Harry Oppenheimer, the other a Jew named Anton Ruppert. Both controlled banking monopolies in the country, and wanted “rights” extended to black South Africans for the purpose of extending their money lending business.

      Oppenheimer had ties to the Rothschild banking family and to the US CIA, which throughout the 1970s through 1990s supported the overthrow of white South African rule, at the direction of the Jew Henry Kissinger. Oppenheimer lobbied the Rothschilds to overthrow Verwoerd, who had publicly denounced the Jewish banking monopolies in Parliament. The Rothschilds secured the support of the Rockefeller, Carnegie and other “Anglo” families in the United States, and had those institutions lobby against the white government. Rockfeller influenced the Council on Foreign Relations and its members in the US government in particular to oppose white rule.

      In 1963 a group of Jews founded Umkhonto we sizwe (MK). They were Lionel Bernstein, Bob Hepple, Dennis Goldberg, Arthur Goldreich, Hazel Goldreich and James Kantor, with a few blacks as front men — Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki (father of Thabo Mbeki), Raymond Mhlaba, and Ahmed Kathrada. Other prominent jews who fully supported blacks: Helen Suzman, Helen Zille (Ex DA leader), Yimach Shmam Vezichram, Shem Reshaim Yirkav and Ronnie Kasrils who’s standing next to Mandela singing kill the boer (ama bhulu) Ruth First, the Jewish wife of Jewish Soviet KGB Colonel Joe Slovo, also a jew, the leader of the South African Communist Party, was primarily responsible for funneling funds to them.

      In 1989 a Freemason with ties to B’nai B’rith, the Jewish Masonic fraternity which controls the ADL, was elected President of South Africa. President De Klerk was a Jewish-backed candidate with ties to the international Zionist establishment. De Klerk worked for and eventually achieved, the Jewish goal of black rule in South Africa.
