In a series of blog posts, VDARE denounces the civil rights icon as a "monster" and "nasty individual" responsible for destroying "first-world South Africa."
In an essay posted on VDARE hours after the announcement of Mandela's death, James Kirkpatrick asserts that "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."
With this claim, Kirkpatrick is desperately hoping that nobody will care enough to point out that Mandela never championed the rights of whites post-apartheid just as strongly as blacks during apartheid.
The next day, a blog post by VDARE's Patrick Cleburne asserted that "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," while John Derbyshire compared the mourning for Mandela to North Korea's mourning of the death of Kim Jong-Il.
