Thanks for providing a link to that site. Now I understand what feeds RWNJ’s.
LWNJs mostly I think.
Thatcher thought that bleckman was a terrrrorrrist, too, as well, also.
Question: Are people in South Africa today economically better off? Are they safer; that is is there less crime and violence there today?I know next door in Zimbabwe that isn’t the case. A once prosperous and safe nation has been turned into a economic basket case of poverty, violence, and repression all in the name of “Freedom” by a man who’s life in many ways paralleled that of Mandella.
He proved himself a terrorist when he waged war on all whites after being elected President. At least I read that somewhere on the internet so I accepted it as fact without looking further.
He was a non-violent man when he got out of prison. He was in prison for being a violent man. While imprisoned he saw the light and emerged a better man. God bless him, but don’t pretend he was a non violent man from the start.
When faced with apartheid, as a “colored”, how would any of his critics have reacted, over time, and in the end? Comparing African nations, even pretending there is “commonality” is absurd. In large part, the history of empires is the history, and cause behind much of the brutality we see in some of those nations. That South Africa IS a more rational nation post-Mandela, and those willing to support him across the racial divide played a role as well, is a credit to humanity. We could all learn from the model Mandela put forth.
