Rhodes Statue Defaced with Sewage – University ‘Removes’ Statue

It started in March with a frenzied throwing of faeces at the statue of Cecil John Rhodes at the University of Cape Town (UCT). This turned into a well-supported and structured movement at the university, with the  “revolution” now bleeding into other universities and other statues.

In an unprecedented step, the University took the decision on Wednesday night to remove the Rhodes statue from its prominent current location – for the sake of transformation.

This is not reverse racism at all. We are dealing with historical justice here,” said 36-year-old PhD student Wandile Kasibe.

The statue was removed a few hours ago – to the cheers of a large crowd.

 

Australia’s prime minister, Rhodes Scholar Tony Abbott, would probably decry the removal of the statue, but I think feminist Olive Schreiner would be applauding this decision. She was a Rhodes critic over a Century ago. Schreiner, initially awed by Rhodes, had come to abhor him. In April of 1897 she wrote in a letter to her friend:

We fight Rhodes because he means so much of  oppression, injustice, & moral degradation to South Africa. But if he passed away tomorrow there still remains the terrible fact that something in our society has formed the matrix which has fed, nourished, built up such a man!

“Matrix”Schreiner used the word back in 1897 – a word that has once again become popular to describe the modus operandi of the power structures.

When I was at the University of Cape Town in the 1970’s, I was ignorant then of Rhodes’ true vision and the egregious means this man pursued power.

Rhodes formed the British South African Company (BSAC) that colonized Zimbabwe, and in April 1888, in search of an oligopoly over diamond production, he (with Rudd and the financial support of Nathaniel Mayer Rothschild) launched the De Beers Consolidated Mines mining company.

In July 1890 Rhodes became the Prime Minister of the Cape colony – with one of his most notorious undertakings being the Glen Grey Act – a document often seen as the blueprint for Apartheid.

At Oxford many years before (1877), Rhodes had articulated his imperial vision:

I contend that we are the first race in the world, and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race. Just fancy those parts that are at present inhabited by the most despicable specimen of human being, what an alteration there would be in them if they were brought under Anglo-Saxon influence…”

Rhodes became an incredibly rich man – but he was acutely aware of the relationship between money and power, and it was power he sought.

Power and Secrecy

Cecil Rhodes was motivated by his ‘great idea’ which came to him at the age of 24 – in the hours immediately following his initiation into the Masonic Order while at Oxford University.

He proceeded to pen his ‘Confession of Faith’ in which he outlined his ambition: to establish a secret society whose objective would be the furtherance of the British Empire and the uniting of the entire Anglo-Saxon race, including America, into one single empire.

Rhodes joined together with Rothschild agent Lord Alfred Milner  to form a secret group on February 5, 1891. Their group had an Inner Circle, known as the ‘Circle of Initiates,‘ led by Rhodes, and later they formed The Outer Circle – the Round Table.

Rhodes’ fortune, through initiatives like the Rhodes Scholarship Fund, has been used to promote their goal: To eventually establish a one-world government, which would be controlled by the international banking community.

Rhodes supported the idea (from Plato’s Republic) of “…a ruling class with a powerful army to keep it in power and a society completely subordinate to the monolithic authority of the rulers.”

Sound familiar?

I guess many of the Cape Town students protesting Rhodes have completely underestimated his part in assisting global autocracy. The ‘transformation’ protests are already moving on to other statues – far less “important” than Rhodes.

e.g. Police arrested two men on suspicion of defacing the statue of Boer War general Louis Botha.

Interesting what one small bucket of faeces can do. But Rhodes stank long before.

  1. The Cecil Rhodes thread of conspiracy research is particularly important because it has been academically documented by Carrol Quiqley in his classic political history book, Tragedy & Hope.

    Is Tragedy & Hope studied by students at UCT so they can achieve a genuine “transformation”.

    This is intellectual and fully dynamic in drawing in the relevant characters, ideas and documented research that confirm an alternative reality exists apart from the faulty theory in common education and media interpretation and study.

    Cecil Rhodes was adopted as useful by the Rothschild “money printers”.
    This is documented in Tragedy & Hope.

    It would be of interest to know what ambitions and philosophy lies behind the UTC “revolutionary” students.

    • I think they will ‘plant’ students in the transformation movement to turn it more into a race issue…. making people turn away from the real issues. Thanks for the link C B

        • Actually, I am still ticked off by the way the outrageous execution of Troy Davis, in 2011, was pitched as a race issue. Just because government officials are white, and the people they happen to be kicking around are black, does not mean the subject of race has anything to do with it. (Seriously).

          I don’t mean that the planners of the Davis Affair did not take race into consideration. They surely wanted to score points, as usual, against blacks. It is phenomenal how blacks are still persecuted in the US.

          But that was a side issue. The real event in Troy’s case was the kicking over of the rule of law.
          Any spectators who could only see “color” happening, rather than the out-and-out treason committed by the US Supreme Court, has a too-limited view. (Please see my website ProsecutionForTreason.com)

          Let the anti-Rhodes games begin!
          And let the whole thing be non-racial!

  2. Other Aussie Rhodes scholars: Bob Hawke, Malcolm Turnbull, Kim Beazley.
    In America:Bill Clinton, Nicholas Kristof, Naomi Wolf (see her Youtube opposing Rhodesy stuff), and, surprise, Adriana Huffington of Post fame.
    Makes ya wunda.

      • Sort of like the two presidential candidates from which we Americans could make a chioce at the polling booth in November 2004: John Kerry, member of Skull and Bones, and George W Bush, member of Skull and Bones.

        Fancy Hawke and Beazley being “Labor.” Oh, the power of words to direct our thoughts!
        At least Abbot and Turnbull are (I’m being facetious) “Liberal.”

      • Only mentioned Tony in the article. It would have been too long mentioning the others.

        Interesting to hear from the new scholars themselves…. they believe they are doing “good for humanity”…

        One sentence this young woman said struck me: “The decisions to wage war or not to wage war” (5.20)

  3. G Edward Griffin has much to say about the rogue scholars ‘club’ and how they have infiltrated universities with revisionist lying history. I noted his address in Sydney in March 2008.
    So sorry the pigeons have been denied their pleasures with the removal of his edifice. Now for his protégées !

        • How about Gambian Journalist Ebrima Manneh? I quote from Dalia’s Sept 28, 2014 article entitled “Teetering on the Brink of Totalitarianism” (referring to Brandis’ censorship laws in Oz):

          “Two plainclothes officers of the National Intelligence Agency
          arrested Manneh at the office of his newspaper, the pro-government Daily Observer. The reason for the arrest was unclear, although some colleagues believe it was linked to his attempt to republish a BBC article critical of President Yahya Jammeh. [Good heavens, the BBC!]
          Despite dozens of inquiries from international organizations,
          the government has not provided a credible account of what
          happened to Manneh after he was taken into custody in 2006.”

          Of course he may prefer that instead of dipping him in bronze, we find him alive somewhere….

    • I was reading with interest that he was “visited” by a ghost (similar experience Adolf H went through). Cecil’s stars then remained in ascendency thereafter.

    • G Edward Griffin, who wrote “The Creature from Jekyll Island”, derived his thesis on the money scam from the researcher, and author Eustace Mullins, who did the first hand investigation in the Congress Library Archives.
      Mullins published his “The Federal Reserve Conspiracy” I own in 1971.
      The pedigree of Eustace Mullins philosophical conception of reality comes from his mentor Ezra Pound.
