Is Mandela God?
Albert Brenner - 7/5/2013
It is always so amusing to witness mere mortals who have the same interests from women to TV to poker as the rest of us turned into a god by the media. The MSM is ablaze, in awe prostrated... rapturously conveying the frenzied idolization, the unfolding living-liturgy and imminent deification of a mortal called Mandela. `He is alive in us!`` ``He is the paragon of Love and Grace!````We must all be a Mandela``. ``He died in Robben Island but was resurrected to make the Miracle of the Rainbow Nation come true``.
Mandela`s inevitable communion with the Choir Eternal is being heralded in
with such bellicose abandonment that one already dreads the brewing
stupefaction set to follow in its wake, 2000 years from now.
Did He really walk on water, all the way from Robben Island to Tuin Huis?
Did He really ascend to the top of Mount Table to write the Holy
Constitution Script and perform the We-Are-Oneness Miracle upon His return?
Did He really take one million fish and divide them into 16 million portions
equal in size to the original million? Did He really soar smilingly undead
into the Heavens in a silver gull-wing Mercedes SLK drawn by four golden
That is was a boat, Realpolitik, social welfare grants and a hearse will be
irrelevant then. For the peddling of Guilt has always been the most
profitable profession in History. Money certainly makes the moral world go
Just, for example, ask Charlemagne - whose Economic Empowerment of the
Franks through the `Christianizing` subjugation of the Saxons, made him and
his cronies incredibly rich and famous. All in the name of the Catholic
Pope...just like Zuma, Sexwale, Ramaphosa and ilk do in the
`Secular-Humanizing` name of Mandela.
Or the Mandela daughters, with their fake hair, clothing range, wine brand
and `Being Mandela` reality show in America. Or instant-billionaire Al Gore,
with his dystopian anthropogenic Global Warming nonsense.
It is all so darn easy. All you have to do is clothe the ever-recurring
memes sustaining religiosity in the moral garments of the new Religion… and
then flaunt them shamelessly, like a drag queen at a Gay Pride parade.
In our Zeitgeist, Human Rights have become the new 10 Commandments,
Apartheid the new Original Sin, the (CO2-free) Rainbow Nation the new
Heaven, `racism` the new heresy, political-incorrectness the new blasphemy,
the South African Human Rights Council (SAHRC) the new Inquisition Tribunal
and the heterosexual Afrikaner male the new Devil.
As Nietzsche said, nothing changes, except change itself. But then, who can
blame the perennially weak of mind? The Sleep of Reason calls forth
monsters. And who better to protect them against that Monster they dread the
most, their own mortality, than a man of flesh...who became God.
