Quintessential Liberal Failures
Affirmative Action
By Deon van Rensburg

In this series of opinion pieces I will attempt, and more often than not, succeed, in highlighting liberal failures. In the process I hope to shine a very bright light on the inherent hypocrisy associated with every liberal preconception, ideological turnip and bias ever uttered in the public or private sphere

In my opinion piece Liberalism – True Political Ideology or a Mental Disease (http://boikotnaspers.blogspot.com/2013/07/liberalism-true-political-ideology-or.html) I contended that there are two types of liberalism:
·      Classic liberalism as defined by those that espouse freedom for everybody – freedom from invasive government, freedom of association, freedom of religion, freedom from oppression, freedom to trade and be relieved of the master and serf condition, freedom to own property, freedom to till his earth, freedom, freedom and more freedom…All whilst keeping to the confines of what is considered civilised, moral and ethical
·      Modern liberalism or “progressive” liberalism yearns for the Nanny State, where a god-like government will be the saviour and mater of the individual, collectively looking after all from cradle to the grave, where equality is the pinnacle of achievement and inequality is deemed to be a deadly sin, where man and woman are the same despite glaring biological and psychological differences, where cultural differences have been wiped from the face of the earth despite thousands of years of poles apart development, where abnormal is the new normal by undermining morals, ethics and values, where people who do not think like you are abhorrent.

There seems to be a definite correlation between “progressive” liberalism and Sociopathic Personality Disorder – immediate gratification of the self, a feel good ideology, damn the consequences. There are also elements of Hyper-vigilant Narcissistic Personality Disorder as diagnosed by psychiatrist Dr. Glen Goddard of the Mayo Institute

“Indiscriminateness of thought does not lead to indiscriminateness of policy. It leads the modern liberal to invariably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviours that lead to failure over those that lead to success. Why? Very simply if nothing is to be recognized as better or worse than anything else then success is de facto unjust.
There is no explanation for success if nothing is better than anything else and the greater the success the greater the injustice. Conversely and for the same reason, failure is de facto proof of victimization and the greater the failure, the greater the proof of the victim is, or the greater the victimization.” Evan Sayet

I often refer to the obvious infusion of Socialism on the modern version of liberalism termed by these liberals themselves as “Progressive Liberalism”.  The palpable similarity between “progressive” liberalism and the Socialist ideology seems to be a bridge too far for “progressive” liberals to understand. I contend that “progressive” liberalism is a grouping of churlish individuals too indolent to think for themselves and will repeat, verbatim and in parrot like fashion, quasi-intellectual “socio-political” discussions of excrement - disguised as opinion pieces in the Lame Stream Media - after bourgeoisie gatherings in comfortable homes situated in upmarket gated estates. Logic, reason and fact will immediately take a week long vacation on some South Sea Island just to get away from the pure absurdity of circular reasoning.

Vladimir Lenin quite rightly referred to them as “useful idiots” who will champion the Marxist cause throughout the world. If only he knew how right he was.

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got." Henry Ford (1863-1947), American founder of the Ford Motor Company

“Progressive” liberals are not averse to implement ideological dogma that has been proven as a failure over and over again. Collectivism, equality, atheism, feminism and a great favourite of the slavering white-guilt ridden useful idiots – Affirmative Action.

In South Africa it goes by many names – Employment Equity, Affirmative Action, Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment, Quotas. It remains in essence Affirmative Action

Affirmative Action has its natal origins in the United States of America where President John F. Kennedy issued Executive Order 10925 on the 6th of March 1961 in a misguided and naïve attempt to stem racial discord in the US. A monster was created which pleased Socialists to no end as racial discord has been amplified by any notion of this bestial attempt at social engineering. It is invasive in schools, Universities, sports, business and Government – in fact, all spheres of society like a cancerous growth on the body of a mangy dog.

“Progressive” liberals will repeat ad infinitum that Affirmative Action is necessary to “right the wrongs of the past”, how “selective discrimination” is fair, how “previously disadvantaged” people must get an equal opportunity at success and how it is aimed at rectifying “white privilege”. Except that there is nothing fair about any type of discrimination – the whole notion is contradictio in terminus. Nature has an immutable law that only the strong survive which “progressive” liberals wishes to subvert but which cannot be subverted. White privilege is a Socialist myth, which could as well have been the brainchild of Saul Alinsky himself – which it probably was in its modern format although credit for this academic excrement must go to W.E.B du Bois. I will discuss the subject of “white privilege” in later articles.

“White liberals are the most racist people there are, because they put blacks in a box and insist that they think one way – and if they don’t, they attack them as illegitimate, all the while denying their policies destroy blacks”-Dr Ben Carson

I have to agree with Dr. Carson here – which just happens to be a very successful paediatric neurosurgeon and whom also happens to be a person of colour. “Progressives”, through Affirmative Action, are telling people of colour that they cannot succeed without the social engineering and the help of Socialist policies on their own. What is more racist than that? To be told that you are incapable of any success on your own, that no achievement can be reached on own accord but whitey liberals will help you along by crying “racist” at everybody that dare stand in your way.

But even more damning is that Affirmative Action is a failure – everywhere it was instituted

When cornered with the glaring failure of AA and BEE in South Africa the vitriolic retort would be that it is being applied wrong – as if there is a right way of applying any piece of doctrine that has at its heart social engineering? “Progressives” will invariably mention Malaysia as a success story, America is a beacon of success in Education, and the caste order in India all but destroyed yet they are not. Here is why:

Affirmative Action had its inception in Malaysia in 1971 and initially was a success by uplifting poor rural peoples to middle class entrepreneurs. However, in 2001 the New York Times – a mouthpiece for liberal propaganda and a target for the social group Rage Against the Media due to various biased articles aimed at the Republicans, the Tea Party and hiding the true nature of Obamacare – published an article entitledCriticism of 30-Year-Old Affirmative-Action Policy Grows in Malaysia (http://www.nytimes.com/2001/01/05/news/05iht-kuala.2.t.html). “But as the country prepares to mark three decades under what is called the New Economic Policy, the program's failures are becoming increasingly apparent. Affirmative action, critics say, has morphed into cronyism. The government transferred wealth to a small pool of politically well-connected businessmen”- sound familiar?

But as the Television ad goes – but that’s not all. Ten years later, in 2011, a study by The Centre for Independent Studies titled “ Malaysia still held back by Affirmative Action” found that Malaysia’s Affirmative Action social engineering project has been a total failure with many businesses on the brink of bankruptcy looking towards the government to bail them out. Air Malaysia is just one small example (http://www.cis.org.au/media-information/media-releases/article/2827-malaysia-still-held-back-by-affirmative-action). This does not tell a success story but rather one of abject failure. Why then deploy it anywhere else?

In America the Cato Institute published an article titled “The Affirmative Action Myth” (http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/affirmative-action-myth) and focuses on Affirmative Action in Education specifically Universities. It concludes that Affirmative Action policies do not help the AA candidate one iota and that it too is a miserable failure. This is then followed up by a piece in the LA Times in August 2013 about the miserable failure of Affirmative Action (courtesy of National Review  as I am not a subscriber to the LA Times http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/356718/devastating-affirmative-action-failure-heather-mac-donald) of a particular student at Berkley that was admitted not because of his academic excellence but because of Affirmative Action

Enter my favourite author on all matters economic and political – Dr. Thomas Sowell who is the Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow in Public Policy at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University and also a person of colour. In his book entitled “Affirmative Action around the World: An Empirical Study” he disproves the ideology, the practice and the expected consequences of Affirmative Action in the United States, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Nigeria. He delivers a stinging indictment against Affirmative Action. In his book he states: “…this discussion has been informed by theories, rationales, and debates over semantics but has been insufficiently attentive--if at all--to the actual consequences.” (http://www.h-net.org/reviews/showrev.php?id=10729) He finds in every country examined, the negative consequences far outweighed any positives that may have been generated.

The same consequences that we see in South Africa today. Cronyism, a ruling oligarchy, corruption, jobs for pals, a shrinkage in economic activity, a bloated civil service filled with incompetents, lowered education levels …ad infinitum

In the minds of their original architects, affirmative action policies were temporary arrangements, which would be phased out when real gains in education and employment among the minority were made. But, in the absence of those gains, affirmative action has often become a permanent policy of "preference" and has unfortunately incited animosity and hatred among the "non-preferred," leading to ethnic conflict and violence”.

So if Affirmative Action is such a failure – everywhere – why do “Progressive” liberals (and their affiliated political parties) champion and defend such a lost cause? Because reason and rationale does not form part of the thought process, because “Progressive” liberalism is a Socialist construct and modern liberalism is a “feel good” ideology – as I indicated, some marked similarities with Sociopaths.

Affirmative Action has been proven on numerous occasions to be a failure, pandering to the wishes of a small elite – the recipients who garner an income they are unqualified for and who for all intents and purposes are completely incompetent to add anything productive or constructive to their work environment, the ruling oligarchy who receive riches and power beyond their wildest dreams and the white bourgeoisie who do not want their little Utopias disturbed and who are still able to live in their comfortable environments with their tenured and management positions earning obscene amounts of money every month.


Here comes the hypocrisy part. With Affirmative Action being a proven failure the “progressive” liberals mounted a concerted campaign of vitriol filled idiocy against a small group of people of non-colour who held a peaceful non-violent protest march to object to the discrimination and social engineering that is at the heart of Affirmative Action – amongst others issues I will add. I would bet my house that these same “progressive” liberals would not bat an eyelid if people of colour mounted protest marches about any issues they consider important – such as service delivery. Oh wait, that happens on a daily basis yet there are no articles in the Lame Stream Media decrying such events as “racist” but rather a heart felt compassionate sympathy article decrying the plight of the poor. Once the article is written and the opinion given - they leave for their pubs, clubs and houses in comfortable neighbourhoods. Once more to have quasi-intellectual discussions with like-minded sociopaths over a glass of good malt whisky or maybe Johnny Burgers best wine.

Africa Check Nechama Brodie manipuleer misdaadstatistiek om Steve Hofmeyr verdag te maak

Me. Nechama Brodie van Africa Check is 'n selferkende simpatiseerder van Kommuniste
Deur Dr. Dan Roodt

Tans woed daar 'n polemiek rondom Steve Hofmeyr se uitspraak: “My stam sterf. Soos vlieë. Ons sterf teen ’n ongekende tempo. En dít in vredestyd."

Vandag in Rapport word Hofmeyr aangeval en 'n artikel op die internet deur 'n onbekende liberale joernalis, Nechama Brodie, klakkeloos aangehaal. Brodie werk glo vir Africa Check, 'n organisasie wat sy beginsels soos volg uiteensit:

"Africa Check is a non-partisan organisation that exists to fact-check claims made in the public arena, impartially and fairly, and publish the results. We also aim to spread the culture and enable the practice of fact-checking among the wider journalistic community."

Die Regse, Rassistiese Blankes en Verkrampte Boere vra hul Linkse, Liberale Landgenote vir 'n Egskeiding!

Deur Sunette Bridges
My Liewe Liberale, Verligte, Sosialitiese, Vrydenkende, Kommunisitiese, ANC-Ondersteunende, Mandela-Aanbiddende, Linkse Landgenoot ons vra julle om van ons te skei en ons toe te laat om in ‘n land van ons eie te bly. Hiermee ons amptelike versoek:

Dit is duidelik dat ons nooit sal ooreenkom oor wat die beste vir almal van ons is nie en miskien moet ons poog om op vriendskaplike basis uitmekaar te gaan. Ons kan dit bloot toeskryf aan onversoenbare verskille en mekaar die beste vir die toekoms toewens.

Hiermee my voorstelle vir ons skikkingsooreenkoms:

Die morele absolutisme van rasvermenging 'n taboe tema in die media

Deur Dr. Dan Roodt

Een van die eienskappe van ons revolusionêre samelewing is dat die universiteite en die media toenemend deur 'n soort revolusionêre roes verteer word. Die grootskaalse verandering wat ons tot dusver beleef het, is nie genoeg nie. Die revolusie moet altyd verder en verder gevoer word, op politieke en maatskaplike vlak, maar ook en toenemend op biologiese vlak. Toevallig sien ek nou die dag 'n artikel deur ene Desmond Painter van die Stellenbosse Universiteit wat 'n pleidooi lewer dat Sewendelaan op TV gebruik moet word om die bevolking te breinspoel om biologiese rasvermenging te aanvaar.
Vir Painter is die huidige gemengde sosiale situasies wat op Sewendelaan uitgebeeld word nie genoeg nie, want daar vind nie werklike kopulasie tussen mense van verskillende rasse plaas nie. Hy verwys ook in Die By van 13 Januarie na "die morele paniek oor seks oor die kleurgrens, oor ondertrouery, vermenging en verbastering, en oor die gevolge hiervan vir die suiwerheid en voortbestaan van die Afrikaanse volk, loop soos 'n goue draad deur die geskrifte van apartheidsideoloë - van Geoffrey Cronjé in die 1930s tot Dan Roodt vandag."

Mainstream Media Misuse of Public Trust Part 2 - The Guardian of Thoughts

Mainstream Media Misuse of Public Trust Part 2
The Guardian of Thoughts

I lie awake at night a lot these days. And I think a lot about the ills of the world whilst lying there, staring at the ceiling.  I, for instance, think about what went wrong in this world that it has become such a dastardly place, I think about the state of affairs for my People, I think of blatant injustices, I think of when the Media had become the guardian of my thoughts.

My wife says I take on responsibilities that is not mine to take, I over-think life.  She never says it outright but we’ve been married long enough for me to read her eyes – she is concerned about me, I go that extra mile to fight for what I deem important in life. Like my involvement with the Boikot Naspers! Genoeg is Genoeg civil movement.

My dear departed mother always said that when you get older, you reflect more in the silence of the night and that while you are a youngster the cares of the world does not bother you. Well I haven’t been a true youngster since my first day as a 17-year-old cadet on the parade grounds of the SAP College in Pretoria-West.

I’ll be quite honest – the SAP was not a calling for me but I was one of the first grand recipients of the words: “You are too white, we cannot give you a bursary”. Apartheid hadn’t even ended yet.  I decided to join the SAP for my National Service as maybe just maybe, I could acquire knowledge and skills that would be beneficial in my life going forward post the National Service. But once I was in the SAP it became the centre of my universe. 

I saw horrible things; I came to understand the depravity of certain individuals that walk in our midst, I finally understood why the West was never able to tame Africa and that she will forever remain a Godless un-civilisable mess.

I saw humans being burned alive with tyres around their necks without the ability to do anything about it, I saw humans being stoned to death without the ability to do anything about it, I saw what should have been fresh-faced girls with the thousand-mile stare after being gang-raped by thugs who only wanted to intimidate at the behest of their Communist masters, I saw people hacked to pieces, but left alive, so that they can carry a message to people having opposite views to what the barbaric lowlifes held at the behest  of their Communist masters.

I was unfortunate not to belong to one of the Public Order Policing units – at least they had the strength in numbers to do something when a terrible deed was visited upon the people of the townships. No, I was a member of a select few who drove around the townships in soft body vehicles and being first responders. The Knuckleheads Upstairs thought it best that we display a benevolent air towards the populace; In lieu of armoured vehicles we were given special training by a variety of purveyors of the arts of Urban Warfare

And whilst I was spending my life doing this I never gave one thought to the Media except to avoid them at all costs at any incident. We were not to be photographed by the Press or even talk to them  - under any circumstances. Then I never understood why, but I do now.

My one and only interaction with a journalist ended badly. The Knuckleheads Upstairs thought it a good idea for someone from the BBC to ride along – good PR you know. Friends and family told me later that they never knew I was such a soulless butcher. When I asked them why, the events that occurred during the ride along and how we were portrayed was at total opposites of the spectrum.

I never read a newspaper, never watched the news and the only magazine I read was the Servamus (and maybe a Scope if one was lying around the barracks). My life was filled with enough horror without the Media adding to it – as if watching the 8 o’clock news or buying a newspaper was the highlight of my day in any case. Getting back to my barracks room alive was more than enough of a highlight, thank you.

Skip ahead a couple of years and there is this young man.  “Old” and streetwise way beyond his years – having seen and experienced what most people only saw in Friday Night Horror movies at the drive-in. Now suddenly a civilian entering the commercial job market for the first time. Fully understanding the street, I was not wise to the ways of the world. Sometimes picking up a newspaper or watching the news filled me with a sense of impotence as I would read articles and know, at the centre of my being, that what I read or saw was far removed from the reality of what actually occurred. I did not understand why, I do now. So I stayed away from any form of Media.

Skip ahead another couple of years and the young man is now no longer that young and is married with children. Now being a mildly successful salesperson that was promoted through sheer doggedness, and contrary to the AA rules the government of the day was enforcing, I am de facto being forced to buy newspapers and keep up with current events. With a number of years between my leaving the SAP and now being a man with other responsibilities I had mellowed. The stark reality of my experiences has faded into the mists of time and I am no longer aware of the true state of affairs. The newspaper gets bought religiously every day of the week, the news at night was never missed and on Sundays the Rapport was read from top to bottom. Sometimes the Sunday Times as well. For years this went on without a single thought as to the true state of affairs. I gobbled up what the Media wanted me to know and spewed forth words of wisdom as preached by the almighty Media machine.

But somewhere in the recesses of my mind there was an uncomfortable feeling that I was being led along. Unbeknownst to me, this was a feeling shared by thousands of others. Normal working men and women realising that something is not kosher. But it was not until I entered the halls of upper-echelon management, and later became a modestly successful businessperson in my own right, that I started to question the Media with the harshness it deserved.

Maybe it is age or wisdom that makes one questions your surroundings. Maybe it is experience finally coming 360 degrees. Events and memories long placed in the memory banks of the human brain starts coming to the fore again making one realise that you are being lied to, that your are being manipulated, that the truth is withheld and that you are being told what to think, when to think it. What is moral and what not, what is acceptable and what not.

I at first questioned small little things but this snowballed very quickly into questioning everything about the media. And once I was able to release myself from the chains of Media induced thought-control I recognised that the Media had appointed themselves as the Guardians of my thoughts. Oh, the outrage when the truth finally hit home!

Outrage that my language, my culture, my religion is under serious threat from the Media. Outrage that horrific murders, as I had seen during my sojourn in the SAP, are being downplayed to nothing more than normal crime. Outrage that the barbarity of these murders were being withheld by the Media for the sake of “Democracy” and racial harmony – a barbarity that I had seen and tasted before. Outrage that murderers were being labelled as “robbers” whilst the true hate-filled events were being withheld.  Outrage at TRUTH having to make way for Political Correctness. Outrage that an ideology designed to destroy my culture, my language, my religion, my history, my ethnicity and the future of my children was no longer being given in small doses but being force-fed to my People and me. Outrage that my experienced worldviews was now labelled as right wing and racist. Outrage that the actual bigots were sitting in small cubicles selectively writing articles to manipulate my People. Outrage that the profession of Journalism has given up its true nature of being the voice of the people it serves and holding Governments accountable to being that of a mouthpiece for an elite few with misery and compliance our only future because of it.

But with such an outrage comes a responsibility to identify the monster. Learn as much about it as possible and shine a spotlight on it for everybody to see its shameless self. That is what we are doing at Boikot Naspers! Genoeg is Genoeg, we are showing the monster to the world and we are freeing ourselves from its influence upon us.

I lie awake at night a lot these days. Thinking on the ills of the world. Do you also lie awake at night doing the same as me? Has the awakening happened for you or are you still part of the herd whose mental faculties are being used and abused by a monster called the Media?

"It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time;
you can even fool some of the people all of the time;
but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time."

Mainstream Media Misuse of Public Trust The Cult of Personality & Idolatry

Mainstream Media Misuse of Public Trust
The Cult of Personality & Idolatry

Thursday the 18th July made me once again wonder how a person convicted of four acts of sabotage and spending a large portion of his life, quite rightfully, removed from society had been elevated to the status of demi-god and saviour -even if for no other reason than being the figurehead and poster child for a world tainted by “progressive” liberal ideology.

People throughout the world fawning over him, dedicating time and effort in his name, literally praying at his feet when they should have been filled with the same aversion reserved for other terrorists and saboteurs. I wondered if the USA would ever reserve the same honour for Osama bin Laden, France for Ilich Ramirez Sanchez aka Carlos “The Jackal”, Indonesia for Suharto, Iraq for Saddam Hussein, Germany for the Black September Organisation?

I am of course talking about Nelson Mandela.  A man convicted in a trial which by all accounts had been a free and fair, a trial in which he admitted his guilt with a statement written for him by Nadine Gordimer, a trial which even the NP Governments worst media detractor – The Rand Daily Mail – admitted that there was no other possible outcome. The infamous Rivonia Trial. A man who to this day has not sworn off violence as a means to an ends and who had made no submission to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

This made me think about other figures throughout history that has attained the same or similar status during their lifetimes and how they were possibly able to achieve this.

I started researching how these people were able too fool so many people for so long. For some this status ended with the day they ended their miserable lives – often violently – but for others, their statuses as a type of idol, heroic figure or martyr have lingered around to foul the air that we breathe. Contaminating everyday life, making seemingly intelligent and informed people – who should have the ability to reason, research and create informed opinions – mere idiots with grey water between the ears.


Examples of “leaders”, tyrants, dictators and public figures that pulled the wool over peoples eyes, but whose real character and actions were far from the puritan and benevolent aura that was created around them, are legion. Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Che Guerva, Fidel Castro, John F Kennedy, Malcolm X, Jesse Jackson & Kim Ill Sung are a few of the examples where the status created around the person still lingers to this day with the real person hidden from the world by a web of deceit, half-truths, embellishments and pure imaginary deeds. For some of these we know about their nefarious deeds yet for all it does not disqualify them from the ranks of “most influential”.

This research interestingly led me to a term that I have heard peripherally before but never really gave attention to as in my, then limited, understanding it was a neologism to explain the popularity of some individuals within their different following. Whether that following being political, ideological or ethnical. I came across the term “Cult of Personality” and began researching more about it.

The Cult of Personality is defined as: “promoting the adulation of a living leader or leading public figure”.

The term has it’s origins in the period 1800-1850 in the English, German and French languages and describes how a person is able to project a totally inaccurate image to the public whilst the true self is in most instances a total opposite of the projection of benevolence and altruisism.

From my research it seems that there are two distinct forms of the Cult of Personality

The first is short-lived and usually only spans a few years. Tyrants and dictators predominantly use it to further totalitarian regimes. The Cult of Personality is used to appear as legitimate rulers with only the best intentions for the populace. This is achieved by a massive propaganda campaign and the usage of benevolent looking images of the person plastered on every conceivable space. It is akin to brainwashing with healthy dosages of intimidation. Criticism of the person is often outlawed. Mobotu Sese Seko, Idi Amin, Hugo Chavez, Nicolae Ceausescu, Augistine Pinochet, Muhammar Ghadafi, Saddam Hussein and Robert Mugabe are prime examples of this usage of the Cult of Personality. It is firmly rooted in Totalitarianism and Communism – in whichever form - be it Marxism, Socialism, Trotskyism or Stalinism


But there is a second and more insidious use of the Cult of Personality. It is a much slower process of indoctrination than would be found in Totalitarian Regimes. It occurs in so-called Democratic societies, which in itself rubbishes the term Democracy. It is in Political Correct speech termed as Public Relations or “spin”.

Princeton University defines The Cult of Personality as: “cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass mediapropaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise… While the cult of personality generally applies to the enhancement and promotion of a political or religious doctrine, it stands to reason that it is also asserted in everyday situations where popularity is used to advocate conformity to philosophies and lifestyles, even products and attitudes by way of peer pressure and herd mentality.” (Please note the usage of the words “conformity to philosophies and lifestyles” which is a benchmark and founding principle of “progressive” liberalism) http://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Cult_of_personality.html

Firstly, it enlists the use of Academia – where history is rewritten and pertinent historical facts are systematically omitted, sanitised and denied. Disciplines such as sociology (which is not a true academic science), religious studies, journalism and law are targeted. What is more susceptible to this type of indoctrination than young impressionable mind?

Secondly, it uses Main Stream Media with Media outlets often the recipients of already indoctrinated graduates and the appointment of political chieftains and political connected individuals in positions of influence. Think of Jakes Gerwell’s appointment to the Board of Naspers. (Jakes Gerwell served in the Office of the President during Thabo Mbeki’s reign). In South Africa, BEE and AA plays perfectly into this scenario.


It is a favourite tool of those inclined towards “progressive” liberalism (which I have in previous opinion pieces explained as being a store front for liberalism infused with toxic quantities of Socialism and made rotten by Cultural Marxism leading inevitably to the Entitlement States and the total annihilation of Western society as we know it)

The MSM is the main and most direct tool of the Cult of Personality in “Democratic” societies. The Media over time embellishes qualities to a person that is not real or true. They create fictional characteristics, an air of benevolence and altruism whilst rubbishing and tainting any historical fact to the contrary thereby creating a person with god-like qualities by projecting a consistent picture of the person’s perfection. The image tends to be a literal picture – think of the various statues, paintings, images in Media, books, bombardment of positive propaganda, emotionally charged head-lines and even images on our money of Mandela.

Negative publicity are quickly reported on with the extent and seriousness of the issue white-washed to be quickly ignored for further scrutiny and buried in the cemetery of Consequenter. Think of Obama’s Fast & Furious scandal or Benghazi or the IRS scandal or…or…or…Think of how various reports by the Public Protector on DA controlled municipalities are swept under the rug and made out as less than what they actually are.

Criticism and detractors of the person is dealt with quickly, harshly and in the most vicious manner often resulting in character assassination, threats and personal insult. There are many examples of this available today – MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and CNN’s Piers Morgan are masters at the above when any criticism is levelled at Barack Obama’s Administration with the racism card being played often as an ad hominem audi alteram partum. The UK Media and UK Government’s treatment of the EDL, Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer whom are all anti-Islamasation of Western Society. In South Africa we have Naspers’ media arm Media24 who has appointed themselves as the guardians of what may and may not be said by independent thinkers and Conservatives about Mandela, the ANC and the DA. They often employ the services of ideological hitmen or groupings such as AfricaCheck - which is funded by George Soros’ Soros Foundations – Max du Preez, Leopoldt Scholtz and Tim du Plessis with a sprinkling of lesser opinionadas covering the rear guard. Naspers very often censors the opinions of counter-thinking individuals skirting the SA Press Code, International Council for Press and Broadcasting and the right to free speech entrenched in the SA Constitution.

Currently we see this type of Cult of Personality not only in Mandela but also in people such as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Francois Hollande, David Cameron and in South Africa Helen Zille, Patricia de Lille, Jacob Zuma and the ANC. (Remember the statement “The ANC will rule until Jesus comes”?)

What is even more concerning, apart from how cheaply and easily people are indoctrinated, is the longer lasting effect where Idolatry rears its ugly head.

Idolatry is defined as: “Idolatry is a pejorative term for the worship of an idol, a physical object such as a cult image, as a god, or practices believed to verge on worship, such as giving undue honour and regard to created forms other than God”.

Does this sound familiar?


Remember one thing – your mind is your own. You have been blessed with the ability of being a sentient being, to be able to reason, to be able to think for yourself, to be able to educate yourself and then to logically and critically come to your own conclusion. The choice is yours – be an independent thinking individual or be part of the herd mentality.
