They line up like desperate puppies at his gate to shake his hand. When they are interviewed years later, they go on about meeting the old terrorist and how his smile "changed their lives".
Statues of Madiba are littered all over the world. But we're not all fooled by the MSM puppet.
This guy was in jail for terrorism and treason. Like hundreds of Islamic terrorists in Guantanamo Bay. I don't know why the US hasn't done the same thing to diffuse Islamic Terrorism. All you have to do is brainwash one of the prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, put him under house arrest for a few years and groom him to become a messiah of the oppressed masses. Most people would believe the crap if you keep ramming it into their heads. Even the most anti-Islamic American would - after a few years of indoctrination - believe that the guy was actually a saint.
I believe that the powers that be groomed Mandela to become the messiah. And it was probably a good thing. South Africa would've gone the route of civil war. But Nelson only postponed it. We should never forget that Mugabe was also revered as the messiah of the oppressed masses. Ghana, which was the first African colony to gain independence was "led to majority rule" by Kwame Nkrumah, who ended up a megalomaniac, almost worshiped by the rest of Africa.
I grew up in the most turbulent decade of South Africa's history. And I never even heard Mandela's name. My parents heard about him when he was on trial in the 60's and never again. I can guarantee you that 90% of the blacks in the country didn't know who he was until the powers that be decided that he was the right candidate to lead South Africa to democracy. (African democracy, though - one man one vote, once)
I could go on about the life of Mandela, but it's been done.
I dread Mandela's death. It's going to go on and on and on. We're going to be bored to death by the endless tributes and whining and howling. Flowers and processions and tribute concerts and donations to the foundations. Every celebrity will jump on the bandwagon. I'll definitely turn off my TV for about 6 months.
A lot of people see through the lies and bloated adoration of an ex-terrorist turned messiah. Watch these videos below. We're not all as thick as the MSM would like us to be.
I guess we should give the old fool some credit for not slaughtering all the whites after he took power. But his party is doing a pretty good job today.
