Obama Compares Nelson Mandela to George Washington - ABC News

Here are a couple of links to the real Nelson Mandella:

And now, on his $100,000,000.00 holiday to Africa, Obama compares a devoted communist to our Founding Father, Revolutionary War hero, and First President, George Washington! My digestive system suddenly found itself in reverse. Definitely leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

PRETORIA, South Africa , June 29, 2013: Although President Obama will not get a chance to see Nelson Mandela on his trip to South Africa, he is using his historic visit to pay tribute to the man he calls a hero to the world and will meet today with the Mandela family.

Obama's two-day visit to South Africa -- and his entire week-long visit to the continent -- has been dominated by the Mandela vigil, giving Obama to speak about what Mandela means to Africa and the rest of the world.

"And what Nelson Mandela also stood for is that the well-being of the country is more important than the interests of any one person," Obama continued. "George Washington is admired because after two terms he said enough, I'm going back to being a citizen. There were no term limits, but he said I'm a citizen. I served my time. And it's time for the next person, because that's what democracy is about. And Mandela similarly was able to recognize that, despite how revered he was, that part of this transition process was greater than one person."

Oh, sure as hell the Mandela's are so well-placed to be praised

Oh, sure as hell the Mandela's are so well-placed to be praised.

Aren't they?

Those who have if only two grams of brain cells for memory won't miss to remember the great things these Africans of Winnie Mandela's "Football Club" DID TO OTHER AFRICAN YOUTHS OF THEIR OWN COUNTRY, in the 80s:

Winnie Mandela, the Necklacing Murderous Diva


Necklacing (sometimes called necklace) is the practice of brutal and cruel execution, carried out by forcing a rubber tire, filled with gasoline, around a victim's chest and arms, and setting it on fire. The victim may take up to 20 minutes to die, suffering severe burns in the process

According to Wikipedia:

The practice was often carried out in the name of the ANC, and was even implicitly endorsed by Winnie Mandela, then-wife of the imprisoned Nelson Mandela and a senior member of the ANC, although the ANC officially condemned the practice.

One of the highest profile cases was that of a young girl, MakiSkhosana, who was necklaced in July 1985

“Moloko said her sister was burned to death with a tyre around her neck while attending the funeral of one of the youths.
Her body had been scorched by fire and some broken pieces of glass had been inserted into her vagina, Moloko told the committee.

Moloko added that a big rock had been thrown on her face after she had been killed

So, yeah... keep lessoning us, ObaMARX, about the feats of your role models...

Or, how about:

YOU SHUT THE F... UP, for a minute ?

Now, that'd be sooooo sweet.

AFAIC, I'm just waiting to see the American people bringing for you and your predecessors THE ROPE THAT YOU DESERVE FOR YOUR CRIMES.

No worries, I am very patient. I'll be there to watch it and enjoy it as it'll happen, in the name of TRUE JUSTICE, finally, when people have remembered about LANGUAGE and the importance of THE WORDS OF THEIR BILL.

I won't miss it for all the gold on earth.

Oh no.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Obama is a liar

If South Africa had apartheid today, he would call Mandela a terrorist.

Failure to acknolwedge the facts?

Repeat them.


"Washington set out to transform a people's army, uniquely suited for a libertarian revolution, into another orthodox and despotically ruled statist force after the familiar European model."

The Central Bankers hire a Strong Man to make sure that things go their way.

The Central Bankers almost lost control of The Colonies.

Why hire the criminals to fight crime?

Why hire the criminals to write agreeable laws?

The criminals agree with the criminals to perpetrate crime, each time, that is what they do, so failure by the victims to know this fact, is not a case of unintended consequences.

It is either ignorance or it is stupidity, there is no such thing as willful ignorance.


Is Mandela also related to Henry III of England?


Free includes debt-free!

There's another similiarity

There's another similiarity George Washington was also a terrorist.

Can I tell you something
Got to tell you one thing
If you expect the freedom
That you say is yours
Prove that you deserve it
Help us to preserve it
Or being free will just be
Words and nothing more

Lovely city, lovely song...

btw, I'm a terrorist too...

Chris Indeedski!

Daily Paul cured my abibliophobia.

I wonder...

who does he think he's addressing... pre-schoolers? These people never give up with their patronizing empty rhetoric 'cause there's always plenty of nimrods to awe.

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

Nelson Mandela was a

Nelson Mandela was a terrorist! So Yassir Arafat was a terrorist who killed occupying and racist Jews, and he was a vicious anti Semite, while Mandela, killed racist Whites and he is a hero. Think about that. I personally still think Mandela was a great man and hero. But why does Obama given the fetish about opposing "terror"?

What a world we live

What a world we live in...

"Although initially committed to non-violent protest, in association with the South African Communist Party he co-founded the militant Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) in 1961, leading a bombing campaign against government targets. In 1962 he was arrested, convicted of sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Rivonia Trial."


Yesterday's violent extremist becomes today's cuddly Kermit the Frog-voiced leader. What time and a good PR team can do for one's rep... Hey, given enough time even Charles Manson could make a comeback in a rebooted "Charles In Charge" on TV.
