The white nationalists at VDARE have responded to the death of Nelson Mandela with a flurry of blog posts painting the former South African leader as a “monster” and “nasty individual” responsible for destroying “first-world South Africa.”
In an essay posted on VDARE just hours after Mandela’s death, “RIP Nelson Mandela – And The Dream of A First-World South Africa,” James Kirkpatrick wrote, “The legacy of Nelson Mandela is a slow motion white genocide and the ruin of a once great country.” The end of apartheid, he argued “should provide a useful lesson for Western whites who are being reduced to minorities in their own historic homelands”:
The legacy of Nelson Mandela is slow motion white genocide and the ruin of a once great country. However, he didn’t kill all his opponents. Implicit in the rejoicing of the Main Stream Media at his legacy is the idea that South African whites deserve to be murdered, but Mandela magnanimously refrained. This should provide a useful lesson for Western whites who are being reduced to minorities in their own historic homelands.
In “post-Apartheid” South Africa, all one has to do to be a civil rights hero is not be too enthusiastic in calling for the murder of whites. If one does kill them, the media won’t praise you… but they won’t condemn you either.
We all must face death, so RIP to Nelson Mandela. He certainly is not the worst leader Africa has produced.
But what no one else will say is: RIP to the Boer farmers being murdered every day, to the Afrikaners attacked in the streets, to the poor blacks savaged by ANC thugs and police… .and finally, rest in peace, the dream of a First World South Africa.
The next day, VDARE’s Patrick Cleburne chimed in with a blog post calling Mandela a “nasty individual.”
“What America should be celebrating is the courage and wisdom of the leaders of White South Africa in keeping this monster away from power until it was, for his purposes, too late,” Cleburne wrote.
John Derbyshire, for his part, compared the international mourning for Mandela to North Korean displays of grief after the death of Kim John Il.
