You may have noticed the news media and a plethroa of political leaders fawning all over Nelson Mandella, the former president of South Africa who died Thursday at 95. From the way it's being reported you'd think he hung the moon. President Obomber has ordered flags to fly at half-staff--something he failed to do for Lady Margaret Thatcher and some other American heroes. (I'll fly mine at half-staff Saturday December 7th in honor of our heroes who died at Pearl Harbor 72 years ago).
Nelson Mandella's persona being reported today is a media myth. Mandella was a Communist radical and member of the African National Congress (ANC) where he helped form a terrorist branch known as Umkhonto we Sizwe or MK for short. He was the first commander-in-chief of MK and among the punishments they had for their enemies was "necklessing." It's not pleasant...consisting of taking a tire, filling it with gasoline putting it around the neck of the "guilty" and setting fire to it. Mandella said MK was "...to direct and control the violence of the nation."
This is the real guy we're "honoring" worldwide today. The 27 years he spent in prison where he was sent for terrorist activities and murder, worked wonders for his image with the left-wing and Communist media fabricating the myth of Mandella.
When released from prison the myth had grown to such monumental proportions that he was elected South Africa's first black president. He then proceeded to take a very successful country (with the best economy on the continent) and run it right into the ground with his socialist policies. South Africa became the murder capital and the AIDS capital of the world! What a legacy! Most of those getting murdered were white--and the national media was silent as the Sphinx. Once again, media malpractice! Nothing new about that.
So remember as you see all the ceremony over Mandella and hear what a great leader he was...it's as phoney as Obamacare.
