Remembering Mandela, without Rose-Colored Glasses
As the world watched the passing of Nelson Mandela, 95, what died with him was the true Nelson Mandela. I ask, "Who is the real Nelson Mandela?" for which there is only one answer. I also ponder how a nation as great as ours can applaud the life of one of the most notorious communist terrorists of his time. With my recollection, I recall that the United States of America was opposed to Communist aggression and terrorist acts such as bombings of buildings and necklacing; however, Nelson Mandela was guilty of all this and more. One is not simply jailed for over two decades for no reason, Mandela was guilty of mass-murder. The real Nelson Mandela I answer is a man who founded and commanded the ANC, a communist organization, and who directed many bombings of public places, killing more women and children than apartheid security, and also directed the necklacing of individuals he deemed guilty. Necklacing is one of the most horrific punishments, filling a tire with gasoline and hanging around one's neck and lighting on fire until the one parishes. Nelson Mandela, the real Nelson Mandela was a mass murderer; his organization killing some 14,000 in 4 years, double that of all of apartheid within all of its years. America and the world must stop listening to lore and learning to obtain their own opinion through unbiased research. How can Mandela be compared to MLK and Gandhi, peaceful protesters, though he used violence? Did the means justify the end, Mr. Mandela? One to I have begun to believe lied his way into the presidency of South Africa. Much more to read is provided here. Lets praise and mourn someone deserving, I know I will. Lastly, if our president praises such a man of those capabilities, why are we spending trillions of dollars against terrorism and communism?
