    What does one have to do with another? How are you not doing the same thing he is doing by accusing their "founding fathers?" of genocide?

    George Washington also preached and practiced conciliation toward all in the new nation. He did not condone or encourage any such things as hangings or tarring/featherings.

    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."

    Washington made a point to hang people in public.

    Not as reprisals against loyalists, which is the subject. He certainly did so for desertion and insubordination in his own ranks, as well as with spies. All of which was quite customary at the time.

Thatcher accomplished nothing that can rival freeing and entire race of people that inspired the world.

    Has American liberal revisionism also contaminated Canada ?

    Yet they still sided with us during the revolution and the War of 1812. We have officially apologized for residential schools and maltreatment of natives. America is guilty of the same.

    Let me ask you this, would you of preferred the militant man who went into prison, leading a bloody revolution/civil war? Or the peaceful reconciliation that happened? Before he went in, he thought violence was the only way. And after being put in a situation that would of made a lesser man bitter and hard, he came out and became the man South Africa, nay the world, needed.
    That is what I have been arguing he was was not a communist militant when he came out.

    "Today, the United States has lost a close friend, South Africa has lost an incomparable liberator, and the world has lost an inspiration for freedom, justice, and human dignity -- Nelson Mandela is no longer with us, he belongs to the ages," he said in the document.

    "Through his fierce dignity and unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others, he transformed South Africa -- and moved the entire world.


    For a Communist? Antithesis to Freedom and Liberty?

    And nothing for Maggie Thatcher...nothing

    I truly want to vomit.
    This is embarressing, but what did we expect?

    David Duke isn't a member of the Ku Klux Klowns anymore, either. I bet you still think he's a racist.
