Re: Nelson Mandela

Who got it right??

Seen on Facebook:


One of the most amazing things that Nelson Mandela ever said was, "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Nelson Mandela actually lived through the indignities, the punishment, the discrimination, the horrors of the South African apartheid system and came out of it. Most people who had been through what Mandela went through would have spent the rest of their life enraged and bitter and angry and would have tried to get even.


It's a sad day as we mourn the loss of Nelson Mandela, a brave and influential man who strived to create peace in South Africa as well as across the world.

From the blog "The Other McCain":


Mandela’s tenure as president of South Africa was, thank God, not the nightmare that Mugabe inflicted on neighboring Zimbabwe, but we ought not be fooled by liberal myth-makers who wish to reinvent Mandela as a secular saint whom all are obligated to revere.

How is it that all these liberals on MSNBC who wring their hands and blame the NRA for the horrible murder rate in America don’t blink an eye in praising the wonderful post-apartheid government of South Africa, where the murder rate is six times as high?" ... "The Gospel of Saint Nelson does not merely omit the long-ago victims of ANC terrorism, but also manages to ignore the ultra-violent reality of contemporary South Africa.
