Revering Nelson Mandela (Moonbattery)
Stay away from your TV this weekend if you have a low tolerance for saccharine. As you know by now, former communist terrorist and President of South Africa Nelson Mandela is dead. The liberal establishment has been waiting for decades to conduct his memory to the peak of Mount Olympus.
Although Mandela led a brutal gang of socialist revolutionaries best known for the practice ofnecklacing; allied himself with a rogue’s gallery of terrorists and maniacs, including Fidel Castro, Yasser Arafat, and Muammar Gaddafi; and also threw in with the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War, he was far from the worst leader Sub-Saharan Africa has produced. When he took power, he behaved for the most part responsibly, refraining from aggressively repressing whites, in stark contrast to the goons who run South Africa now.
