Unlike our opportunist president, Nelson Mandela unified his country. He forgave the small percentage of bigots for their hatred. He could have strung up the whites like they did in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. Creating famine and death. Instead he took the high road and achieved historic success and respect. He will be remembered forever.

Our president on the other hand along with the new mayor of NY never miss an opportunity to divide the masses. What Obama is doing is dangerous for the future of our great nation. He will never be as beloved as Nelson Mandela.

I believed that if Obama had declared that his election was the end of racism (from a practical standpoint), he'd be as loved as Mandela. If he'd rejected the Hedge funds and crony capitalists, he'd be worshiped. He has missed an amazing opportunity to make health care better, grow our economy and bring all races together.

RIP to one of the greatest world leaders who ever lived. Nelson Mandela

Yeah sad day indeed. Even worse is all the people acting sympathetically on facebook, pretending they knew how influential he was. His "I had a dream" speech will go down famously in history. RIP

Exactly so, just as you can see HERE.

Starting a Mandela thread to piss on Obama. What a way to honor him.

Our single most important challenge is therefore to help establish a social order in which the freedom of the individual will truly mean the freedom of the individual.

JP, great video. Bill Maher really knows how roast the darlings of the right. Martin Bashir could learn something from Maher.

Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.

How many innocent Iraqis, including women and children, were killed by Dick Cheney's terrorists?
