I'm a little ticked this morning because city hall is flying the flag at half staff to honor the life of Nelson Mandela. Mandela was a Communist and a terrorist who turned South Africa from a (relatively) peaceful, prosperous modern country into a violent, blood-drenched, poor Third World shit hole. Further, his wife before their divorce was a violent, murderous witch who used her "Soccer Team" to "necklace" her political enemies. For those who aren't aware of the term "necklacing", it's probably the most horrific, painful death known to Man. You are bound and a tire is placed around your neck, then soaked in gasoline and set alight. South Africa's crime statistics are seriously under reported so as to not embarrass Mandela or show the extent of South African's penchant for violence and murder. http://www.frontline.org.za/Files/PDF/murder_southafrica (5).pdf Conversely, when Margaret Thatcher died, no flag at half staff or presidential visit. Ghandi was a far greater man who brought independence to India without violence, a lesson the Mandelas and their followers obviously never learned.
