    All you and the others claiming Mandela was some evil commie terrorist will still claim that despite all the evidence against it. No matter that he rightly or wrongly was sent to prison for 27 years - it will never be enough punishment.

    Hope you never committed any crimes lest you find the same attitude against you - whether you serve punishment or not.
    What is this evidence that commies, Marxist, progressives and liberals keep talking about but nobody produces ?

    Nelson Mendela was offered a number of times to be released from prison if he would just denounce terrorism and he refused.

    Nobody including President Obama denies that Obama wasn't a homophobe. President Obama just said he "evolved" and was no longer a homophobe.

    I suppose some time in 1990 Nelson Mendela evolved.

    Why don't you read about him and educate yourself. Look at how many countries that are sending representation. Even Ted Cruz is attending

    Because I was responding to the quote in the post that said he only flies the flag at half-mast for locals.



    Why?
    Because he was a bad president. An "empty suit" I believe you conservatives today call it.

    You have that wrong.

    You have that wrong too....Bating a thousand.

    And what does that matter? Look he's like Michael Jackson (except he's not an American). A ton of folks honored him at his funeral. Yet some folks will never honor him. The fact remains Mandela has no connection whatsoever with America, did nothing for America and is honored by only some Americans. So honor him all you wish, but lowering our flag for him is a no-go.

    I was well aware of who Nelson Mandela was by 1971. Most Americans had no knowledge who Mandela was until the mid 1980's and all they knew about him was that he was sitting in a prison in some country they couldn't even find on a map.

    1962 Mandela (on the left) illegally left South Africa for military training in Morocco not Algeria as the revisionist claim by the ALF which was aligned with the Soviet Union and was armed by the Soviet Union.

    So what, so what, and... so what. Most of us don't care that he was engaged in military resistance--we laud it. The South African people had every right to take up arms against the regime that oppressed them, ghettoized them, and terrorized them. In the end it proved critical to the greater combination of forces that forced the Apartheid regime to the table.
