    He was no peace maker. He was even considered a terrorist until 2008. He didn’t even apartheid, he merely changed it to so blacks could terrorize, kill and rape whites, steal their property and more while the govt turned a blind eye. Yes, apartheid was evil, but what Mandela created was more evil. Two evil’s don’t make something good or better. He was no peacemaker, Bush was no peacemaker and Obama is no peacemaker, he raised the bar to a new level, assassinate American citizens abroad without a trial. I’m not surprise that Bush and Obama both are going to his funeral. All partners in crime and murder. Doesn’t matter who it is against, black, white, Muslim, Christian…

    Exactly. Mandela was NOT a US citizen and did nothing for the US. In fact he said we could ‘go to hell.’ He didn’t have to spend 27 years in prison but he refused to disavow his Marxist terrorist ways.

    Stop being lazy and do your own research.
    You have nothing to lose but your own ignorance.

    Republican administration of President Ronald Reagan [Unlink] and the government of the British Conservative Party’s Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher [Unlink] had declared him a “terrorist” and supported the apartheid Afrikaner regime.
    .
    In an interview with the CBS in 1981, Ronald Reagan made it clear that the US could not abandon the apartheid regime due to historical links and that the apartheid regime was "essential to the free world?”
    Reagan’s use of the term “free world” in this statement was indeed ironic.
    Reagan’s policy statement in 1981 is unlikely to shock Americans of conservative leaning whose worldview in 2013 is not significantly removed from the 1980s of Reagan’s Republican administration.

    Do yourself a favour and don’t look up Gary McCoy’s cartoon on the subject.

    I’m sure he wasn’t happy that S. Africa was still locked in poverty and many of his people still lived not much differently than under apartheid. At least financially. They were free to be poor.

    @No Man

    Reposting in response to No Man’s lies elsewhere:

    Your claims are pathetic, half baked lies, spouted by racist pigs. I usually try to avoid such language to describe other posters, but this spew of disgusting venom needs to be answered.

    Mandela & the early ANC did espouse Marxist ideals, but so did the folks who went on to form the governments of Ireland & Israel in their early, revolutionary periods. What Mandela thought in 1960 was very different from the thoughts of the man who emerged from nearly 3 decades of imprisonment. Even then, he was more interested in equality & democracy than nationalizing South Africa. By the time Mandela was released he had the benefit of seeing the disasters that nationalization caused in other African countries.

    http://www.moneyweb.co.za/moneyweb-political-economy/what-nelson-mandela-thought-about-nationalisation

    Mandela was moving from non-violent protest to believing that the only way to gain freedom was by meeting violence with violence. The ANC started using sabotage & destruction of property as a means of political protest, but expressly disavowed killing civilians as counter-productive. Mandela seems to have been planning a guerrilla resistance to the state. George Washington was probably one of his role models.

    Mandela was arrested for organizing strikes & leaving the country without permission. He entered a “plea in mitigation of sentence”, saying that he was, “a black man in a white man’s court.” He was sentenced to five years. At the time, the South African government wasn’t aware of the full extent of his leadership role in the ANC. When they uncovered documents that gave them more information on the ANC’s plans to destroy infrastructure as a means of disrupting the government, Mandela & nine others were put on trial. Mandela plead not guilty.

    The ANC went on to commit ruthless acts against suspected informers & people considered a threat to the organization. During this time, Mandela was on Robben Island, breaking limestone with a sledgehammer. Newspapers were forbidden. Mandela was allowed one letter & one visit every six months, both under close scrutiny by prison staff. There isn’t a shred of evidence that Mandela was even aware, let alone had a hand in the ANC’s despicable acts at the time.

    No Man’s “source” is Peter Hammond. As for him, “If you believe Christ wants a holy war to preserve apartheid, the Reverend Peter Hammond is your general, his Frontline Fellowship your army,” wrote the National Catholic Reporter in 1989.

    Despicable, racist propoganda.

    Glenn, you didn’t get the Koch talking points? The right is against Mandela. Something something communist something necklacing something terrorist.

    cartoon Error!
    It was TERRORISM that put Mandela into prison.
    It was not “apartheid”! Mandela could have been released if he had denounced terrorism. He had more than one opportunity to “get out of jail” but refused to do so.
    And the “solution” for South Africa was to steal property from families that had owned it for generations, through bloody defense, sweat and tears…..to give it to State-chosen “comrades”….and turned an economic success of a nation into a 3rd rate not successful nation.
    -
    (the United States and Israel are also accused of “apartheid”, falsely accused. The USA and Israel do not have governments with systematic segregation. Both do much charity and jobs programs and medical care for the needy citizens.)

    @disgustedtaxpayer

    More racist, cluelessness. Mandela was never for killing civilians, nor ever associated with killing civilians. He was for destroying government infrastructure & waging a guerrilla war. So were the Founding Fathers.

    Like most of the people trying to distort & smear Mandela’s record, you don’t even have a basic grasp of facts. You seem to be confusing South Africa with Zimbabwe or Mozambique, where new, black leaders did trash growth opportunities.

    The young Mandela would likely have nationalized much of S.A.‘s economy. The older Mandela was wiser. Since 1994, South Africa has been doing about as well as most other advanced economies. The biggest criticism, is that blacks are still not seeing anything near economic parity with whites, but Mandela’s successors have been the ones dealing with that.

    Oh boy. Uncle Joe is correct: you HAVE confused Zimbabwe with South Africa.
    And I’m astonished folks on the right give more credence to the apartheid regime of old.

    dtroutma GoComics PRO Member said, 10 months ago

    As the sister of a good friend was married to a “Brit” and living in Rhodesia before it became Zimbabwe, the “change” there WAS rather dramatic, to put it mildly. And yes, confusing Zimbabwe with South Africa isn’t unusual at all for so many of our “convinced conservatives”, and serves only as a model for many of their “facts”.


    What Mandela ended up doing for his country, and countrymen, is a positive example for the world, period.

    Take a visit to Cape Town, if you dare and see if you can walk the streets at night unmolested.

    I walked the streets of Pretoria at night many times. There are some nice restaurants and clubs there. Has any one eaten at Carnivore restaurant? It is awesome. They keep bring out meats from different animals till you surrender.
