In 1961 Nelson Mandela created the violent murderous
Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation) to appose the South African apartheid government. After which, during the 1960's and
70's, barely a week went by without terrorism -- dynamite at a fuel
depot, a car bomb outside Air Force headquarters in in a city center.
The ANC's guerrilla force -- known simply as MK, or more formally as Umkhonto we Sizwe translated "Spear of the Nation" At
first only the targets were infrastructure but two decades later MK was
killing civilians without compunction -- grenades would be bowled into a
hamburger joint, or trip wired limper mine planted in an arcade -- and
Mandela supported it all!.
"Notable among these attacks were the
January 8, 1982 attack on the Koeberg nuclear power plant near Cape
Town, the Church Street bombing on May 20, 1983, killing 19, and the
June 14 1986 car-bombing of Magoo's Bar in Durban, in which 3 people
were killed and 73 injured." (Wikipedia)
Amnesty International never accepted Nelson Mandela as a political prisoner. Amnesty International refused to take on Nelson
Mandela’s case because they asserted that he was no political prisoner
but had committed numerous violent and deadly crimes and had had a fair trial and a
Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist
wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. He had pleaded guilty
to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing
campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the
Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and
children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.
South African President P.W. Botha had, on a number of occasions,
offered Nelson Mandela freedom from prison, if he would only renounce
terrorist violence. This Mandela refused to do.
Nelson Mandela hands ran red with the blood of innocent people who had no part in the Apartheid government. Time and again the South African Apartheid government sought to free Nelson Mandela but he refused to renounce murder as his capital means of political change.
I ask you when is killing innocent women and children EVER legitimate political discourse.
Nelson Mandela is not only a murder but he is alos a liar. For all his political discourse black South Africans are far worse off today then when they were under Apartheid rule. The plight of Blacks in South
Africa is much worse under the "peoples' ANC government." The number of
people living on $1 a day doubled from two to four million. The
unemployment rate doubled to 48% from 1991-2002. In
2006, only 5,000 of the more than 35 million black South Africans
earned more than $60,000. A quarter of the entire population lived in
shacks without running water or electricity. A quarter have no access to
clean water. 40% have no telephone.
The HIV/AIDS/TB infection rate is 20%. Life expectancy dropped by 13 years. 40% of schools have no electricity.
Make no mistake Nelson Mandela is nothing more then a lying, thieving, murderous politician who would kill as many people as it took to seize and hold onto power in South Africa. No matter how much the Main Stream Media at his passing will try and scrub his image, it will always be stained with the innocent blood of his own people who he betrayed once he sized power.
