Time for us to Play the Mandela Card Against the Left

Ramona: Didn’t a great man once say, “Sci­ence demands noth­ing less than the fer­vent and uncon­di­tional ded­i­ca­tion of our entire lives?”

Shel­don: He did.

Ramona: And who was that great man?

Shel­don: Me. Sorry Leonard.

Leonard: Seri­ously? You’re not coming?

Shel­don: You heard her. How can I argue with me?

In short, resist­ing a more pow­er­ful oppo­nent will result in your defeat, whilst adjust­ing to and evad­ing your opponent’s attack will cause him to lose his bal­ance, his power will be reduced, and you will defeat him. This can apply what­ever the rel­a­tive val­ues of power, thus mak­ing it pos­si­ble for weaker oppo­nents to beat sig­nif­i­cantly stronger ones.

As we enter day 4 of Man­dela fest on every net­work and in every paper it’s become read­ily appar­ent that the left intends to do its level best to use Nel­son Man­dela as a club against the right even to the point where Ted Cruz is attacked not for his state­ments on Man­dela but over troll state­ment by some of his commentators.

Talk­ing points memo is in full Man­dela attack mode going after any per­son who dares not bow down before the sec­u­lar god, and the use of Man­dela as a club vs the right dom­i­nate Meme­o­ran­dum:

Jacob Fis­chler /​Buz­zFeed:

While it’s impor­tant to tell the truth about Man­dela as he was and South Africa as it is that doesn’t solve the media prob­lem nor counter the club that the left /​media will us on us with low infor­ma­tion voters.

So what is the solu­tion? The clue comes in my ini­tial post on Mandela’s death:

The world is full of exam­ples of the for­mer, of Cas­tros of Putins of Mugabes, of men who started as rev­o­lu­tion­izes against oppres­sors and became oppres­sors itself. Even here in Amer­ica how many peo­ple were attacked in the name of “Jus­tice for Trayvon?”

Because he did not, because he eschewed vio­lence when he had the power to wreak it, because he instead restrained him­self he also restrained an entire peo­ple who could have called for blood.

This made him great.

That exam­ple is the sin­gle great­est gift he gave to the world and is rightly admired for it and will be for cen­turies to come.

If only the Cas­tros , Putins and Mugabes fol­lowed it.

The sec­u­lar saint­hood myth of Man­dela is based on a sin­gle unde­ni­able fact, that he is pretty much the only Left­ist com­mu­nist rev­o­lu­tion­ary in his­tory that didn’t abuse the power he even­tu­ally won to gain wealth & power for him­self and repress and slaugh­ter those who dis­agreed with him using either gov­ern­ment or extra gov­ern­ment methods.

That is so atyp­i­cal, so extra­or­di­nary (even the peace­ful Nor­we­gians after lib­er­a­tion from the Nazis exe­cuted Quis­ling) that I have no prob­lem call­ing Man­dela “great” but more impor­tantly what if we on the right embrace that stan­dard and hold the left to it?

For exam­ple, when the left praises Cas­tro, we put Uncle Fidel up against the Man­dela Standard

Man­dela: Didn’t keep power for him­self for 50 years.

Man­dela: Didn’t keep a secret police watch­ing his polit­i­cal foes.

Man­dela: Didn’t keep dis­si­dents from leaving

Man­dela: Held free elec­tions with mul­ti­ple parties

Man­dela: Didn’t have the wives of jailed pris­on­ers beaten

Do you see? The left always seems to have excuses for mur­der­ous com­mu­nist tyrants and dic­ta­tors, but when we play the Man­dela card how do they jus­tify these acts when Man­dela him­self didn’t do them?

And that doesn’t have to be applied only to for­eign affairs consider:

Man­dela never used the tax sys­tem against his polit­i­cal foes

Man­dela never sum­mar­ily sus­pended law

Man­dela didn’t use the gov­ern­ment to sup­press his polit­i­cal foes.

It can even be used on spe­cific issues

How can voter ID be racist when Mandela’s South Africa requires it?

Q: Can I vote with my tem­po­rary reg­is­tra­tion cer­tifi­cate (TRC)?

A: No, you can only vote with your South African, green, bar-​coded ID or a valid Tem­po­rary Iden­tity Cer­tifi­cate (TIC). You can apply for a green, bar-​coded ID or a valid TIC from the Depart­ment of Home Affairs.

Q: Can per­ma­nent res­i­dents vote in the elections?

A: No, only South African cit­i­zens with a green, bar-​coded ID book can vote in elections.

One of the Alinsky’s rules for rad­i­cals is to: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. By all means we should hold our friends on the left, both nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally to those Man­dela stan­dards they pro­fess to admire.

And if they don’t, well obvi­ously they must be racists.

As we enter day 4 of Mandela fest on every network and in every paper it’s become readily apparent that the left intends to do its level best to use Nelson Mandela as a club against the right even to the point where Ted Cruz is attacked not for his statements on Mandela but over troll statement by some of his commentators.

Talking points memo is in full Mandela attack mode going after any person who dares not bow down before the secular god, and the use of Mandela as a club vs the right dominate Memeorandum:

Anneta Konstantinides / ABC News:
Ted Cruz Criticized for Praising Nelson Mandela

Don’t Sanitize Nelson Mandela: He’s Honored Now, But Was Hated Then

Jacob Fischler / BuzzFeed:
South Carolina Sheriff Refuses To Lower Flag For Nelson Mandela

 

While it’s important to tell the truth about Mandela as he was and South Africa as it is that doesn’t solve the media problem nor counter the club that the left / media will us on us with low information voters.

So what is the solution? The clue comes in my initial post on Mandela’s death:

The world is full of examples of the former, of Castros of Putins of Mugabes, of men who started as revolutionizes against oppressors and became oppressors itself. Even here in America how many people were attacked in the name of “Justice for Trayvon?”

Because he did not, because he eschewed violence when he had the power to wreak it, because he instead restrained himself he also restrained an entire people who could have called for blood.

This made him great.

That example is the single greatest gift he gave to the world and is rightly admired for it and will be for centuries to come.

If only the Castros , Putins and Mugabes followed it.

The secular sainthood myth of Mandela is based on a single undeniable fact, that he is pretty much the only Leftist communist revolutionary in history that didn’t abuse the power he eventually won  to gain wealth & power for himself and repress and slaughter those who disagreed with him using either government or extra government methods.

That is so atypical, so extraordinary (even the peaceful Norwegians after liberation from the Nazis executed Quisling) that I have no problem calling Mandela “great” but more importantly what if we on the right embrace that standard and hold the left to it?

For example, when the left praises Castro, we put Uncle Fidel up against the Mandela Standard

Mandela: Didn’t keep power for himself for 50 years.

Mandela: Didn’t keep a secret police watching his political foes.

Mandela:  Didn’t keep dissidents from leaving

Mandela:  Held free elections with multiple parties

Mandela:  Didn’t have the wives of jailed prisoners beaten

 

Do you see? The left always seems to have excuses for murderous communist tyrants and dictators, but when we play the Mandela card how do they justify these acts when Mandela himself didn’t do them?

And that doesn’t have to be applied only to foreign affairs consider:

Mandela never used the tax system against his political foes

Mandela never summarily suspended law

Mandela didn’t use the government to suppress his political foes.

It can even be used on specific issues

How can voter ID be racist when Mandela’s South Africa requires it?

Q: Can I vote with my temporary registration certificate (TRC)?

A: No, you can only vote with your South African, green, bar-coded ID or a valid Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC). You can apply for a green, bar-coded ID or a valid TIC from the Department of Home Affairs.

Q: Can permanent residents vote in the elections?

A: No, only South African citizens with a green, bar-coded ID book can vote in elections.

One of the Alinsky’s rules for radicals is to:  Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.  By all means we should hold our friends on the left, both nationally and internationally to those Mandela standards they profess to admire.

And if they don’t, well obviously they must be racists.
