    Having allowed enough time to go by so that those who wished to mourn, and honor the memory of Nelson Mandela, might do so, a more informed picture can be provided.





    The acclamation for President Mandela is due mountains of praise for his refusal to demand revenge for decades of imprisonment.
    That's true.

    But in his case, his hagiography reversed Antony's speech: "The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones."
    In this case it is the evil that is buried.





    1. "More than 90 heads of state honored Mandela at his memorial service, ... almost NOBODY mentioned the nightmare that is South Africa today: crippling poverty, a collapsed educational system, brutal attacks on white farmers, escalating sexual assaults on little girls, an AIDS epidemic, and on it goes.

    2. ...known for being a “political prisoner” for 27 years. But why was he in prison?
    ... Mandela headed up a terrorist organization that was responsible for thousands of deaths—most of it black-on-black crime. Mandela also had strong ties to communism, an ideology responsible for more death and destruction over the last century than any other political movement.

    3. Mandela once said, “Under a Communist Party government, South Africa will become a land of milk and honey. Political, economic and social rights will cease to be enjoyed by whites only. They will be shared equally by whites and non-whites. There will be enough land and houses for all. There will be no unemployment, starvation and disease. Workers will earn decent wages; transport will be cheap and education free.” This empty promise highlights another buried angle of the true Mandela: his FAILURE as a president.

    4. ... “His presidential term started with the Shell House shootings, when [African National Congress] militants on the roof of the ANC’s headquarters used AK-47s to gun down Inkatha marchers in the streets of Johannesburg. Mandela simply refused to hand over either the murderers or their weapons, and attempted to justify this wholesale murder. Then, early in his term, the government laid off all the country’s most experienced teachers, a blow from which the school system has never recovered” (National Interest, Dec. 10, 2013).





    5..... Mandela once said, “If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.” This view did not stop many American leaders from comparing Mandela to Washington, Lincoln and Gandhi.

    6. A more accurate comparison would be with Yasser Arafat, the former-terrorist-turned-statesman whom the West enthusiastically embraced. Mandela’s take on Arafat? “[O]ne of the outstanding freedom fighters of this generation, one who gave his entire life to the cause of the Palestinian people.”






    7. Today, South Africa is in shambles. It is far more violent than it was under apartheid. It hasn’t gotten better over the past two decades—IT’S GOTTEN MUCH WORSE.

    8. In 1980, there were 128,000 commercial farmers in South Africa. Today, there are 40,000. About 200 white farmers have been murdered every year since the end of apartheid in 1994. According to Genocide Watch, 3,000 white farmers have been killed by blacks.

    Many of these killings have been unbelievably gruesome: victims disemboweled or dragged to death behind vehicles, mothers raped in front of their children, babies boiled to death in hot water.




    9. Twenty whites per day are murdered in South Africa—70,000 since 1994. That murder rate is more than 100 times worse than in London.....

    “If you’re shocked that you haven’t heard anything about this, don’t be,” Selwyn Duke wrote at American Thinker on December 16. “It’s even less politically correct to talk about the extermination of whites than that of Christians, who are currently persecuted in many Muslim lands. The SA police often aren’t interested in investigating crimes against whites (especially since they perpetrate some of them), and the Western media were only concerned about reporting on SA whites when they could be demonized.”

    Compare the Mandela facts and the Mandela fictions.
    Have you ever seen a better example of Leftist revision of history?

    Even if the cause was right, do the means justify the end? and if they do, aren't those means justifiable for any cause?

    Isn't it interesting that those on the same side of the political divide who endorse the canonization of Mandela rarely miss a chance to slander the Founders of this nation.

    One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.
    Though we seek to justify any, all or some actions, it is hard ti judge when you were not in their shoes. Why even the Founding Fathers were considered traitorous fringe elements by British, except for those that wanted the British to loose that were British citizens.

    There weren't any WMD in Iraq. Over 4,000 American soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraqis had to die to confirm that fact. Does the end justify the means?

    We should never forgive those Democrats!!!!!


    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
    Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18,1998.

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999.

    Reagan sold weapons to Afghan terrorists, Iran and Iraq. The right must love Muslim extremists.

    Good to see that you have retreated from your implication that Bush, and the Republicans were behind the theme of WMDs in Iraq.


    Reagan supported those fighting communists.

    You aren't about to support communist regimes.....are you?
