Like U.S. President George Washington, Nelson Mandela did engage in crimes against the state. Like Lincoln, he brought the country back together through some terrible events. Like Gandhi, he’s loved worldwide and learned to lead by inspiration and action.
Mandela dedicated his life to ending apartheid, he said "apartheid has no future." In 1993 the apartheid ended.
The hypocrites, those very old men that labeled him terrorist, communist, etc., wanted him jailed and even murdered are now singing his praises. They are an utter disgrace, these old men of the commies era, who don't realize they have lost their relevance and their way. They must go away!
Rest in Peace for eternity Nelson Mandela, only now are you truly free man!
