- read this -then investigate the facts for yourself- not what MSM the Left and politically correct politicians shove at you. Martin Luther King was an honorable man - not #NelsonMandela.
Mandela's support of pali is well recorded -its really Hamas PLO etc but the press likes to insert Palestinians- it denote suffering people instead of the reality of a people who want Israel Not to Exist.....below are lesser known statements by Mandela on Castro,Qaddafi and you can find others on the IRA- if there is a group targeting innocent civilians the likelihood that Mandela voiced support for them and their tactics are excellent;
Twice while imprisoned, in 1976 and 1986, Mandela was given an opportunity to be freed if he would renounce violence. Both times he refused.....Not even once did Mandela renounce the violence and murders or so much as express regret....
This while his wife was publicly burning people alive.
...After apartheid ended and Mandela was freed he wasted no time in lavishing praise on communists and thug dictators. In 1991 he and his wife Winnie went to Cuba, which they called their second home, to celebrate the communist revolution with Fidel Castro.
While there he said, "Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro... Cuban internationalists have done so much for African independence, freedom, and justice. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of a vicious imperialist campaign designed to destroy the advances of the Cuban revolution. We too want to control our destiny... There can be no surrender. It is a case of freedom or death. The Cuban revolution has been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people.
Mandela also said of Cuba, "There's one thing where that country stands out head and shoulders above the rest. That is its love for human rights and liberty."
Of Libya's dictator, Moammar Qaddafi, Mandela said he admired his commitment to fight for peace and human rights in the world.
And in a speech given in Harlem, he referred to four Puerto Rican terrorists who shot and wounded five Congressmen and said, "We support the cause of anyone who is fighting for self-determination, and our attitude is the same, no matter who it is. I would be honored to sit on the platform with the four comrades you refer to."http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/3036205/posts
-----------MANDELA THE MYTH.
Sarah, the author of this factual article (written just before the 90th birthday party of this media celebrity), is an Englishwoman endowed with an incisive and razor-sharp understanding of South Africa 's recent history as I do having lived there for 24 years. Unlike so many millions of brain-washed lemmings in the UK, she sees right through the media-contrived smoke & mirrors, lies and myths as propounded by the MSM. (Mass Media.) Thanks to Sarah for the OK to reproduce this here. It says it all. Written 2008
It is often said that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter, however, this usually means that the other man has been less than fastidious in his choice of hero, or that the 'freedom fighter' in question was on the crowd pleasing side. On the 27th of June, 2008 London's Hyde Park played host to a concert in honour of Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday and it received wall to wall coverage by a star struck and worshipping media, who will continue to laud Mandela as one of the greatest, or indeed the greatest, heroes of our time.
The beaming old man will appeared on stage in one of his trademark multi-coloured shirts and cheerily acknowledge the cheers of the adoring crowd, most of whom have been taught to believe in his sainthood since their first days in primary school, which, for many of them, will have occurred around the same time their hero walked free from Robben Island.
The unquestioning belief in Mandela's universally admired saintliness will again be displayed in the press and by the unending line of politicians and dignitaries who will queue up to genuflect before him and sing his praises. It is a brave politician or journalist who would dare to question the godliness of this legend and consummate showman, and hence no such questions will be raised, nor will his much vaunted
'achievements' be subjected to any objective scrutiny.
No matter how many speeches are given or how many news articles are written, it is safe to bet that the full truth about Mandela will not be told except by those who know and care about history being recorded factually.
In fact the truth about Mandela is so hidden in mythology and misinformation that most know nothing about him prior to Robben island, and those who do tend to exercise a form of self censorship, designed to bolster the myth whilst consigning uncomfortable facts into the mists of history.
For most people all they know about Mandela, prior to his release in 1990, was that he had spent 27 years in prison and was considered by many on the left at the time (and almost everyone now) to be a political prisoner. However, Mandela was no Burmese Aung San Suu Kyi, he was not an innocent, democratically elected leader, imprisoned by an authoritarian government.
Mandela was the terrorist leader of a violent terrorist organisation, the ANC (African National Congress) which was responsible for many thousands of, mostly black, deaths. The ANC's blood spattered history is frequently ignored, but reminders occasionally pop up in the most embarrassing places, indeed as recently as this month the names of Nelson Mandela and most of the ANC remained on the US government's terrorist watch list along with al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Tamil Tigers. Of course the forces of political correctness are rushing to amend that embarrassing reminder from the past. However, Mandela's name was not on that list by mistake, he was there because of his Murderous past..... To continue By Sarah, Maid of Albion. www.sarahmaidofalbion.blogspot
