    Have you heard of any GOP politicians saying anything good about Mandela..

    I'm really surprised by the unmitigated hate coming from the military guys on here, not you of course..
    I guess I don't remember when Mao and Stalin died..Did they get it this bad ?

If not paying one's respects at least letting the guy get buried before demonizing the man. But perhaps it is because I am one from an older generation.

    Sometime I wish there was a dislike feature, next to the like.

    I'll admit that he was a terrorist in his past. But surely you can see that the man who died today was completely and totally different from the one angry man who went in.

    Ted Cruz also offered a nice tribute on Facebook.

    Ted Cruz Criticized for Praising Nelson Mandela - ABC News

    The commenters were not particularly gracious.

    No, he had no involvement in America, made no contribution to America. Again, we don't just lower our flag because someone was popular or did good things on the world stage. If that were the case we would have lowered our flag to half staff when Irena Sendler died in 2008.

    Maybe if you personally have known someone who was killed during the Korean war or someones name who's on the Vietnam War Memorial you would have a different view of communism and freedom fighters.

    What Forum? I really don't know why there are this many Mandela forums when it's the same thing in everyone. Also, you asked for a republican, and I gave you one.

    Which is why you should never put stock in the comments section of any website that allows them. Generally populated by the worst the internet has to offer.
