    I think the founding fathers were terrorist and traitors just like uncle sam thinks they are now. But I have no problem with it. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

    "In a way I had never quite comprehended before, I realized the role I could play in court and the possibilities before me as a defendant. I was the symbol of justice in the court of the oppressor, the representative of the great ideals of freedom, fairness and democracy in a society that dishonoured those virtues. I realized then and there that I could carry on the fight even in the fortress of the enemy."
    — Nelson Mandela, 1994

    You being "slightly liberal" should "slightly" give a "****" what Fidel Castro thinks.

    I am aware of the MK's campaign of bombing infrastructure, most if not all of which happened while Mandela was in the joint, and none of which targeted "women and children." My point stands.

    Why? Liberalism =/= Communism, despite your frantic attempts to insinuate otherwise.

    Did you miss this post or just choose to ignore it?

    Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 - 5 December 2013) was a communist terrorist leader and former President of South Africa. He was imprisoned for some time for attempting to plant a bomb in a shopping center with the intent of killing men, women and children. He signed off on the Church Street bombing in 1983 which killed 19 people and maimed another 217."

I'm glad she had the opportunity to meet Mandela in person.

    Greetings, APACHERAT!
    And the current leader is Jacob Zuma. He's still sings Shoot the Boer. Which is a song about killing Afrikaans. It's a good thing Michelle didn't meet him. It would have been down right embarrassing.

    There is pretty solid speculation those are extremely ginned-up charges.

    You are wrong there.. South African apartheid referendum was a white vote only. Means whites ended Apartheid.
