The making of another Moonbat Messiah. There will never be another one like him. (spit)
Full name Nelson Rolihlahla Dalibhunga Mandela. AKA ‘Madiba’:
Revering Nelson MandelaÂ (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. No one in his right mind would want to live under him, but he looks great in comparison to racist looters like Jacob Zuma, Robert Mugabe, and Barack Obama.
The truly clueless may believe Mandela was imprisoned in that cell for peacefully protesting. Actually, he was in jail for terrorist acts that legally qualified him for the death penalty. Â Read it all: Â Nelson Mandela
A Cuban Exile Sees No Cause For Celebration
Much is made about the fact that Mandela felt a kinship with Castro overÂ his decisionÂ to send up to 10,000 young Cubans to their deaths in Angola. MandelaÂ himself saidÂ that few countries could “point to a greater record of selflessness” when describing this purge of Cuban youth. But Mandela did not stop at saying positive things about the regime. He insisted on telling its victims that he was choosing to ignore them.
“Who are they to call for the observance of human rights in Cuba?”Â he saidÂ on his visit there in 1991. “Who are they to teach us about human rights?”
In South Africa, the blacks have reversed the apartheid system and are systematically murdering whites; unreported by the leftist media in the west. Â SA is headed for total ruin as the remaining whites leave or move to Â areas where they believe they might be safe for a little while longer.
Some people believe that he “forgave”, he didn’t. When Â power was handed to him, all the military class was white. He could not overthrow them without loosing his place. Plus, as member of a terrorist organization, prosecuting the whites would have forced him to prosecute his own friends who had blood on their hands. The easy way out was “forgiveness”. He was a brillant policy tactitian.
Since Mandela took over, South Africa has become a Third World country.
It went from being the safest country in Africa, to being the rape and murder capital of the world. In Johannesburg, 5,000 people are murdered every year. Unemployment went from 5% in 1994 to 50% today.
Mandela led the ANC that massacred thousands of white farmers. Did he stop it? No he didn’t. It still goes on.
The ANC and Mandela were not taken off the terrorist list until 2008. Why were they on the list? Because they were a terrorist organisation.
So who took him off that list? That’s right:
Mandela led the ANC from prison:
THE ANC’S VICTIMS WERE MOSTLY CIVILIANS:Â
1981 – 2 car bombs at Durban showrooms
1983 – Church Street Bomb (killed 19, wounded 217)
1984 – Durban car bomb (killed 5, wounded 27)
1985-1987 – At least 150 landmines on farm roads (killed 125)
1985 – Amanzimtoti Sanlam shopping centre bomb Dec 23 (killed 2 white women and 3 white children)
1986 – Magoo’s Bar bomb (killed 3, wounded 69)
1986 – Newcastle Court bomb (wounded 24)
1987 – Johannesburg Court bomb (killed 3, wounded 10)
1987 – Wits command centre car bomb (killed 1, wounded 68)
1988 – Johannesburg video arcade (killed 1 unborn baby, wounded 10)
1988 – Roodepoort bank bomb (killed 4, wounded 18)
1988 – Pretoria Police housing unit, 2 bombs (wounded 3)
1988 – Magistrate’s Court bomb (killed 3)
1988 – Benoni Wimpy Bar bomb (killed 1, wounded 56)
1988 – Witbank shopping centre bomb (killed 2, wounded 42)
1988 – Ellis Park Rugby Stadium car bomb (killed 2, wounded 37)
Late 1980s – numerous Wimpy Restaurant bombs (killed many, wounded many)
On 31 January 1985 State President P W Botha offers Nelson Mandela, leader of the banned African National Congress (ANC), conditional release from the prison sentence he had been serving since the conclusion of the Rivonia Trial in 1964. The condition of his release is that he renounces violence, and violent protest, as a means to bring about change in South Africa. He decline to renounce the violence.
And the U.S. Moonbat Messiah reveres him. Disgusting.
UPDATE Â from Tim Blair:
Today’sÂ Daily Telegraph:
Faced with the horrors of apartheid as a young man, Mandela initially resorted to Marxism and even the support of armed violence against South Africa’s whites-only leadership.
In this, he shared much in common with many other African revolutionaries of the 1960s and 1970s. One of the great tragedies of Africa is that so much potential for positive change has been wasted in pursuit of pointless extremism.
For an example of just how destructive this has been for Africa, consider the nightmare of Zimbabwe under Robert Mugabe’s vicious tyranny. Similar examples abound throughout the modern history of what should be one of the world’s wealthiest continents. At the same time, apartheid – which banned nearly 70 per cent of South Africa’s population from voting – provided a similarly grotesque barrier to progress.
For some blacks, he just wasn’t black enough:
FromÂ a NYT articleÂ thanks to blazing cat fur:
“It’s not an exaggeration to sayÂ Mandela’s leadership style, characterized by accommodation with the oppressors, will be forgotten, if not rejected within a generation,”Â he wrote in June.
Some criticized him for what they saw as anÂ overeagerness to placate the country’s white power eliteÂ in the transition to nonracial democracy in the early 1990s and, thereafter, with being more interested in keeping economic power brokers happy, albeit with a few new black faces in the group, than in delivering economic equality to the vast majority of those still living in poverty.
He just wasn’t harsh enough. Mugabe is your man!
I am not optimistic about South Africa.
“Nelson Mandela is a symbol, an icon, one of the world’s most famous statesmen, recognised and revered by all. He dines with royalty, associates with the world’s great leaders and his opinion is sought and valued on all weighty matters. He has achieved an almost divine status in the world, equal to that of the Pope or the late Princess Diana.”
Most people on the left of the political spectrum would agree wholeheartedly with the above quote. But they run into an unexpected problem when someone asks “why is he considered such a great statesman?”
The problem is that Mandela, apart from having a likeable personality, has achieved next to nothing in his relatively short political career which saw South Africa rapidly decline to the status of the world’s most violent and crime-ridden country, and, to add to the confusion, his greatest friends are communists and dictators like Fidel Castro, Moammar Qaddafi, Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein. His ex-wife Winnie Mandela, whom he quickly jettisoned when it became clear she was a considerable embarassment to his political career, is a self-confessed advocate of terrorism and violence and has even committed murder.
