Nelson Mandela
(1918-2013) South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, imprisoned for 27 years, President of South Africa (1994-1999)

    This creature was a Marxist-Leninist who was a terrorist responsible for the deaths of goodness knows how many people because of his revolutionary acts.
    Read up on "Neck-Lacing." That was a favorite way he and his wife dealt with those that opposed them.
    It was sickening to watch the so-called "conservatives'' slobber over this Satanic murderer when he died.

    Communists have NEVER played an active role in fighting for freedom ! ! ! Short term objects of communism have NEVER corresponded with the long-term objects of freedom movements ! ! ! South Africa has never fully recovered from Mandela's terrorism, political exploits, and totalitarian despotism.
