    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    The only reason to fly a flag at half staff is if that person freed people from Apartheid?

    Is that in the law somewhere?

    If you want to argue that Mandela wasn't a terrorist, then do it. But all of this bringing up of the "Founding Fathers" is just rank ignorance and stupidity. No, a rebel is not automatically a "terrorist."
    In this case

    Mandela = Obama

    Founding Fathers = Bush

    Source: HOW TO BE A GOOD COMMUNIST, by Nelson Mandela –


    MANDELA THE MYTH

    “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.”

    IMV, our Flag should not be lowered to half staff in deference to any foreign dignitary...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    I think it is the right thing to do. It is a way for our country to show its respect for the recently departed. It doesn't bother me whether he was an American or not. We have flown the flag at half mast for several public figures previously.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter has nothing to do with ideology, but about methods and ethics—particularly the treatment of noncombatants and the observance of established rules of warfare.

    If you cannot see the difference between the great men who founded this nation, and the movement with which Mandela was associated, with regard to these parameters, then that's your deficiency. Mandela's movement may have been for a good cause, but its methods and ethics were those of terrorists and murderers, not of legitimate freedom fighters.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
