Saturn pays Helen Suzman a visit
By Mike Smith

The French journalist Jacques Mallet du Pan once said, "A l'exemple de Saturne, la révolution dévore ses enfants" (Like Saturn, the revolution devours its own children).
Du Pan was obviously referring to the Greek Titan Cronus (Roman: Saturn) who overthrew his own father and feared that his children might overthrow him so he devoured them one after the other.
Therefore it is not really ironic to see the liberals who supported and assisted the ANC to overthrow Apartheid to be devoured by their very own creation today.
Comes to mind the likes of Max du Preez, Helen Zille and Allister Sparks being called racists by their darling ANC.
Another one is that LWB Helen Suzman who worshipped Mandela and frequently visited him in prison. She was by his side the day he signed the new SA constitution in 1996. It must have been the highlight of her miserable life.
For 36 years she tirelessly used her tactics of Marxist Critical Theory in the SA parliament where according to her, the white NP did everything wrong and the angelic black terrorists in the ANC did everything right.
Whenever the NP did something good to the blacks, built them schools, hospitals, houses, etc it was never enough. They should do more. Should do better. On and on this witch dug at the NP.
How they could never see through her tactics is beyond my comprehension. They must have been complete political dunces and judging from their eventual capitulation to the ANC, I am sure they were. They should have silenced her a long time ago.
Instead they tapped her phone. Her answer was to blow a Rugby whistle into the phone every time she answered.
However Helen Suzman’s love affair with the ANC started to crumble when her beloved Mandela praised Muammar Qaddafi who was almost Hitlerian in his anti-semitism and once called on the Arab world to wage continuous war on Israel. Of course Suzman was originally a Lithuanian Jew.
The ANC and the SACP hated her guts even more than the NP. They blamed her for not backing sanctions against SA, called her “an agent of colonialism” and “part of the system”.
Nevertheless, this ignorant cow and lover of terrorists was eventually awarded 27 honorary doctorates from universities around the world and was twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
In a British interview in 2004Helen Suzman criticized the ANC’s version of democracy and said that it was better under Apartheid
After her death, the Helen Suzman Foundation which scrutinises elections, voter choice and the conduct of political parties in South Africa, Zimbabwe and other African countries carried on her work. However they went a little bit too far.
Three days after the Helen Suzman Foundation and Freedom Under Law launched an urgent application in the Pretoria high court calling for the suspension of Hawks head, Lieutenant-General Mthandazo Berning Ntlemeza, the Foundation's offices were raided in an armed apartheid military-style operation on Sunday afternoon.

Notice how the ultra leftist “Daily Maverick" just could not resist taking a sideswipe at Apartheid, which obviously had nothing to do with the raid.
I wonder if sick tit Helen Suzman would spin in her grave if she knew what her beloved ANC did to the country, namely turn it into an East German Stasi state, or whether she would rejoice. Afterall, it is what she wanted. It was her biggest wish.
All I can say is, “Carry on Saturn. Chomp away, mate. Eat them all!”
