“Red Piper Zero One- a brief analysis of ANC and SACP aims in 21st century SA”
by: Mircea “Mitch” Negres
While it was living in denial, or at least putting on a front for a long time,
the ANC has (sort of) admitted of late it has problems with factional battles
and that state departments are among its trophies and victims.
Although the party’s internal conflicts are frequently sub rosa, they do break
to the surface of public political life when elections come around because
of the various factions’ need to ensure their survival and control of
state resources for personal gain, party gain, as well as advancing what
the ANC cadres call the National Democratic Revolution.
Therefore, the problems Nhlanhla Nene, Pravin Gordhan, Robert McBride
and former top guys at SARS have are unsurprising.
What needs to be understood is that this is not a fight between good
and evil, or a struggle for South Africa’s soul and future as a democratic
state, but actually a case of office intrigue and power struggle writ large
from which ordinary South Africans will emerge as the losers no matter
who eventually gets to the top of ANC’s candidate list or comes to power
The latest shot fired in the battle of the factions comes from none other
than South African Communist Party deputy secretary general Solly
Mapaila, who warned reporters on Friday that state security agencies
are a threat to the national security of South Africa.
On the surface this would seem to be the action of a well-meaning citizen
and politician who’s got the country and its people’s best interests at
heart- but that’s on the surface.
So, what lies beneath it? I don’t know which faction Solly Mapaila belongs
to, but I do know concerns about corruption and involvement of state
security agencies in ANC political squabbles and suppression of the truth
through harassment, bugging and smear campaigns against journalists
and politicians go back many years.
It goes back to the days when Billy Masetlha was involved in the so-called
E-mail Saga, and even before, to 2001, when the South African National
Defence’s Military Intelligence had under surveillance and harassed an
innocent man who was trying to expose and stop who and what by then had
caused three deaths (another 18 died over the next 14 years as a result),
rampant corruption, maladministration, discrimination, abuses of power,
sexual misconduct, dangerous decay in the nation’s military capabilities and
Come to think of it, this goes back even further, to the days of the notorious
Camp Quattro and the many innocents who were tortured by Mbokodo
paranoid psychopaths under Jacob Zuma’s command.
Alright, this kind of bullshit is old, but why is it happening and what is
First, one has to understand just who is in power, what their ultimate aims
are and what drives these people’s motivations.
Who is in power? On the surface, one would call it the ANC-led Tripartite
Alliance, a group made up of the ANC, the trade union umbrella organization
COSATU and the South African Communist Party.
Going sub rosa however, the picture is different.
South Africa’s ruling elite is actually comprised of people in and out of
government, in business, intelligence, trade unions, crime syndicates, SACP
These people have an agenda whose execution they finance with dividends
from seed capital provided to people such as Cyril Ramaphosa and other high
level Black Economic Empowerment beneficiaries from the days between 1994
and around 2005, besides stealing an estimated R30.000.000.000 a year.
Okay, so not all of the crooks in our government steal to finance the ANC,
but enough of them do for this to be a real problem.
The ideological underpinnings of this enterprise are found in nothing worse than
communism and black supremacism. I say this because much like the Freemasons
allowed the Illuminati in their ranks (a matter of historical fact, not conspiracy
theory), the ANC allowed members of the SACP in its ranks and gave those
people positions of power within the organization and government departments.
While the effect of the Illuminati upon the Freemasons is mostly theory, what
the SACP did to the ANC is visible in its governance record and countless
statements of ultimate political intent and tactical policy regarding South Africa.
The questions are why this happened and what the consequences will be.
The simplest explanation is that in order to assume political control of South
Africa (because a military option was unfeasible due to the apartheid regime’s
strong SADF capabilities), the ANC had to convince the National Party leaders,
MPs, constituencies, foreign governments and investors that it would be
white-friendly and allow private enterprise and secure ownership of capital
and means of production.
To do that, they needed to keep the SACP out of contesting the elections so
as to provide a façade of democratic leanings, when they (the ANC and SACP)
in fact had none. Fair enough, but this was also helped by the fact that…
The ANC had shifted its internal political doctrine from the early days to
communism some time in the 1960s, when they began to receive aid and
political indoctrination from the U.S.S.R., Cuba, North Korea, East Germany,
Yugoslavia, Romania and other Eastern Bloc countries.
Given the social stratification situation during apartheid, when whites were
generally better off than other racial groups and after the advent of democracy
in 1994, those communist (as well as anti-white) leanings were further
entrenched when it became apparent the majority of the previously oppressed,
disenfranchised and economically disempowered racial and ethnic groups had
still not benefited from the change in national political and economic dispensation.
This broad inability to improve one’s lot in life has entrenched the fallacious
belief that all whites are rich and that the majority of South Africa’s economy
is white-owned (not true, according to statistics on ownership of companies
listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange), while providing increasing support
for the idea of nationalization without compensation of privately held assets,
capital and means of production (even if it means resorting to genocide against
whites), and the rise of the populist/racist Economic Freedom Fighters party
under Julius Malema, the former leader of the ANC Youth League of all things,
who has incited genocidal violence against white people on numerous occasions.
The lack of improvement to the satisfaction of the majority’s expectations happened
under ANC’s governance. While one can take corruption and incompetence into
account for a portion of this failure, the fact is this is what communists the world
over have either taken advantage of or helped create in order to take power.
In other words, much of the failure that democratic South Africa has become is by
design, and that can only be part of an agenda.
Given electoral support for the ANC has been declining steadily for years and is
believed to lead to a narrow defeat at the polls in the 2019 national elections, one
would have to ask why a political party which has had power for 22 years is committing
One explanation is that the broad membership of the ANC is not in charge of
the party’s direction and those who are, have different aims.
Why? Well, the ANC has numerous factions, each with different interests and
political leanings. There are capitalists, democrats, black supremacists, those
interested in self-enrichment through corruption and so on.
Out of them all, there appear to be at least two dominant factions holding power
in today’s ANC, and they are the corrupt along with the communists.
Given that communism is not a virtuous system of governance by any stretch of
the definition to say nothing of its historical record, it could well be just one
large faction which combined the elements of both factions’ aims for mutual
When taking into consideration that the SACP has members in powerful positions
within the ANC and drives a lot of the party’s agenda, the unfolding scenario
points to a power play which on the surface would lead to the demise of the ANC,
but in reality remove from the contestation of power of more democratic and
capitalist-leaning factions by either forcing the disbandment of the ANC or
actively and publicly subordinating it to the SACP, and thus bring one step closer
the fruition of what the ANC calls the National Democratic Revolution.
National Democratic Revolution. “I’ve heard that before, what does it mean?”
you’re probably asking by now.
The way I understand it, it’s the umbrella name for the ANC’s strategy
of nationalization of privately held assets, capital and means of production,
total domination of the South African social and political space and creation
of a socialist state, in which we’ll very likely see mass oppression of minorities
and the rise of a blatantly corrupt leadership structure at all levels that will
use every means at its disposal to keep, maintain and even increase power
at the expense of the people of South Africa, much like nomenklaturas
did throughout the communist world during the 20th Century.
“Yeah, but they call it a “Democratic Revolution”, you’ll say plaintively.
Sorry folks, this is what the Soviets used to call Maskirovka and Dezinformatsiya.
In other words, you are being misled. You see, to quote a Romanian columnist’s
view of communism and neo-communists, “today’s communists lack empathy
because they’ve never experienced it on their own skin, so they think of it as a
live, roaring lion- that which those who’ve lived through it think of as a dead dog”.
These guys, such as Jeremy Cronin, Blade Nzimande, Ronnie Kasrils, Gwede
Mantashe, Derek Hanekom and others, believe in communism because they’ve
never seen it first-hand, did not live through its brutality and hopelessness, and did
not witness the cost of bringing down communist regimes and fixing the damage
they did. That’s not to say they’re stupid or naïve.
Much like the neo-Nazis, they’ve learned from their idols’ failures and mistakes
although the fact that communism doesn’t work hasn’t penetrated their
dangerously fanatical minds yet.
Mind you, even if they did understand, like “Red Ronnie” Kasrils seems
(but hasn’t publicly said) to have, the communist ideology provides a wonderful
doctrinal basis for taking at gunpoint that which they’ve never worked for
and to make themselves absolute masters, because as the character William
Strannix said in the movie Under Siege, “Yes, of course! Hence the name:
movement. It moves a certain distance, then it stops, you see? A revolution
gets its name by always coming back around, in your face.”
Steve Biko’s Black Consciousness Movement is dead. The ANC’s National
Democratic Revolution is not, and the above quote explains why.
This means they can theoretically keep going and do whatever they want
indefinitely, or at least until enough of the South Africans who survived the
purges which will likely follow the establishment of such a ruling elite, rise up
against it like countless oppressed people have done countless times before.
That’s a lot of killing and looting, folks, something you may want to consider
for at least a minute, even if it’s scary as hell.
This means they’re aware of most people’s dislike of communism (SACP has a
very small number of voters, perhaps even less than EFF) and thus engage in
deception to further their goals. You may think I’m talking trash, but the
German Democratic Republic was about as democratic as Nelson Mandela
was a Nazi, so there’s one example of the communists’ deceptive use of the
Furthermore, this deception also serves to keep the majority of foreign and
domestic capital from fleeing the country at present (even communism needs
money and technology) and the opposition from actively fighting against the
National Democratic Revolution agenda, which believe it or not, is vulnerable
to properly targeted political and social attack until it’s enacted.
I wrote earlier that corruption and political partisanship in South Africa’s
state security services are not new.
That’s true, and there have been numerous warnings about the issue, very
prominently after Sunday Times journalists Mzilikazi wa Afrika and Stephan
Hofstatter were harassed by SAPS under the orders of then-National
Commissioner Bheki Cele, with Mzilikazi wa Afrika actually being illegally
arrested, denied access to legal counsel and questioned for hours about his
political views, while Stephan Hofstatter reported at least one attempted
Add to it former Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille’s disclosure that she
was provided conclusive proof her telephonic conversations were being
monitored and recorded (the DA eventually hired a private investigator to
“sweep” its phones and communications, and the guy is currently facing
criminal charges for doing so, brought against him by those beholden to the
ANC), submissions to the ad-hoc parliamentary committee on the General
Intelligence Laws Amendment Bill, and many other incidents which all had a
common theme- an alarm ringing that our security services are compromised
and increasingly used for internal oppression, and that it is only a matter of
time before this would be to the detriment of the whole of South Africa.
Ladies and gentlemen, a senior member of the South African Communist Party
just said the politicization of our security services is a danger to the national
security of South Africa. Together with the ANC and other parties, they’ve had
at least a decade to say this. You need to ask yourselves why he did it now instead
of ten years ago and who benefits, because there’s no way the second-highest
leader of a communist party has at heart the best interests of those who love
democracy and free enterprise.
You need to look more closely at what the ANC means by its so-called National
Democratic Revolution and ask yourselves at which point the banks, financial
institutions and big business owners who protested to the ANC when Jacob
Zuma fired Nhlanhla Nene, will lose their freedom because they have taken sides
by default in an ANC factional battle.
Beyond that, you also need to look at why South Africa did not have an appointed
Inspector General of Intelligence for years and what effect this had on our
security services, as well as the meaning of recent coalitions in which opposition
parties entered into in order to take control of some municipalities from the ANC.
Why do I say this? Simple. When a party gets into bed with those who actively
campaign against the interests of its core constituency, that means its leaders are
willing to do anything to get power, and the right thing be damned.
I don’t know about you, but that thought scares the hell out of me.
The ANC and SACP work towards a common goal, that is the establishment of
a socialist South African state. Having lived in one for the first 12 years of my life,
I can tell you it’s not going to be pretty, what with mass graves, 3AM snatches of
dissidents, torture chambers, persecution of people of conscience and mass murder
amid the pervasive brainwashing and terror which characterized every regime that
subscribed to that evil ideology throughout the 20th Century and is still found in
Vietnam, China and Cuba to this day.
Politicized security services are indeed a serious problem, but communists are
by far the greatest threat to South Africa’s national security.
Folks, they are the red version of the Pied Piper. Unfortunately for most
of you, these guys are not leading South Africa’s parasites out of town, but
instead they’re trying to lead you to ruin. If you haven’t been worried or scared
before, better start now, before it’s too late.
Spread the word and this analysis, create critical mass and take back your
God-given right to something better.
Do it now, before the Red Pipers take everything from you, from all of us.
