    Nobody is going to argue with you if you simply dislike Mandela or if you have personal reasons but we will argue if you give out false reasons such as "he was a communist."
    I haven't seen anything to prove Mandela wasn't a Commie but, the other half of my premise was giving credit to and honoring Maggie Thatcher for her life's work.

    If their ideologies were reversed, you people would be wearing Thatcher t-shirts.

    IC has actually always been one of Maggies staunchest supporters here.

    R.I.P Iron Lady. At her best, she could see through the failed policies of bringing everyone down to the lowest economic denominator.

    You're welcome.

    You're welcome.
    My apologies to IC for including him in that group of the extreme politically biased.

    I blame Obama and his minions for the misunderstanding.


    Who shall we blame for the atrocities perpetrated against Whites in South Africa today?

    From my experience the American flag is a at half mast every other day so why not for Mandela?

    I don't know what happened with that link, after I first posted that comment I kept clicking on the link, trying to make sure that it was working and I couldn't get a response, good or bad, I guess that website or this one was busy at the time.

    " ...As far as the Communist Party is concerned, and if I understand its policy correctly, it stands for the establishment of a State based on the principles of Marxism. Although it is prepared to work for the Freedom Charter, as a short term solution to the problems created by white supremacy, it regards the Freedom Charter as the beginning, and not the end, of its programme.

    The ANC, unlike the Communist Party, admitted Africans only as members. Its chief goal was, and is, for the African people to win unity and full political rights. The Communist Party`s main aim, on the other hand, was to remove the capitalists and to replace them with a working-class government. The Communist Party sought to emphasize class distinctions whilst the ANC seeks to harmonize them. This is a vital distinction.

    It is true that there has often been close co-operation between the ANC and the Communist Party. But co-operation is merely proof of a common goal - in this case the removal of white supremacy - and is not proof of a complete community of interests.

    The history of the world is full of similar examples. Perhaps the most striking illustration is to be found in the co-operation between Great Britain, the United States of America, and the Soviet Union in the fight against Hitler. Nobody but Hitler would have dared to suggest that such co-operation turned Churchill or Roosevelt into communists or communist tools, or that Britain and America were working to bring about a communist world..
    . "



    100% on the money.

    Great post, but some people will be calling Nelson Mandela a Communist from now until the end of time, because they don't like the way that things turned out in South Africa.
