Mandela Death Observation
Me vanity ^ | 06/24/13 | Me vanity

Posted on 06/24/2013 7:28:31 AM PDT by keving

Just thinking ahead....,,,Will the death of Mandela cause US flags to fly at half staff? If President orders will towns and corporations comply? Will those who do not comply be labelled as racists?

Legacy: We hear only the good. What is the state of South Africa as a result if Mandela's rule? Are they better off now?

Nelson Mandela was a communist agitator, married to a mass murderer, who took the helm of modern and proserpous country and turned large areas of it into a 3rd world cess pool.

How about a Moment of Silence? I’m sure the Kenyan would see no harm in asking all Americans to observe a Moment of Silence.

HEY! WHO FARTED?

SA has turned into a cesspool since the ANC took over. I know people that still live there.

I don't think we traditionally fly flags at half staff for foreign heads of state. Having said that, nothing this administration does would surprise me anymore.

As for whether they are better off now than they were then, I suppose that would depend on who you talk to. White South Africans may say no. But black South Africans would probably prefer the way things are now, with all its flaws, to life under apartheid where they had no control over their lives.

“Legacy: We hear only the good. What is the state of South Africa as a result if Mandela’s rule? Are they better off now?”

My boss has gone to South Africa on hunting trips, three times now. He also housed a foreign exchange student from there for almost a year. He describes a dangerous nation, where there are areas white just plain cannot enter at night. Specifically, his exchange student lamented that more and more areas were becoming ‘off limits’ to whites, at night.

He also described tha absurdity of the AIDS epidemic there. Some high level official had sex with an underage relative...now the media outrage over this was not the incest, infidelity, or statutory rape. No, the outcry was that he had not used a condum. Adding to the absurdity, this official retorted that he had taken a shower prior to the intercourse, which apparently is widely believed in the region to prevent std’s. So, the political discourse, during the entire time my boss was in country on one of his trips, was whether or not this guy was lying about taking the shower.

And I look at the Pistorius case. Even if you believe he is guilty, it is hard to ignore the paranoia he had, in prior Facebook posts...or the fact that he lived in a walled community with razor wire.

Such is present day South Africa - a Mad Max style world, where violence and ignorance rule the day.

America was instrumental in the decline and fall of the Africaans’ country and culture. America empowered the communist Mandela, so I would think that our socialist phony president will order all flags flown at half-mast and America’s phony president will kneel on his little rug, face eastward and pray to his god.

We do not lower the US flag for foreign people. I KNOW mine in my yard will not be. Neither will they at our church since I am the one who handles that also. I will not put some foreign person in the same category as US soldiers and such that we do the half mast for.

Nelson Mandela could have instantly been released from prison at any point he chose.

All he had to do was repudiate violence as a means of public debate.

Yes, he is/was a world changer, a mover and shaker, but he was the antithesis of a Gandhi.

Just like Obama, it doesn’t matter what state the country is in. It only matters that they worship him as ‘hero.’

Perhaps some rounds of Memorial Necklacing in certain neighborhoods. And outside the George Zimmermann trial.

According to the U.S. Flag Code, the flag can be flown at half staff for foreign dignitaries upon a presidential proclamation.

Obama will make sure Mandela dies in the next couple of days so the funeral can be used as an excuse for his African trip.

Chris Christie lowers the flag to half-staff for everyone.

Growing up I do not recall seeing the flags at half-staff, ever.
Now these days they drop ‘em down for everything. It’s like giving every performance a standing ovation; it just dilutes the meaning and nobody gives a rip.

Well there you go. When Mandela dies the flags will be at half staff for months.

SA has turned into a cesspool since the ANC took over.

This says it all.

The South African government faced criticism over the weekend after it confirmed reports that the military ambulance carrying Mr. Mandela to the hospital had broken down, leaving him waiting on the roadside until a replacement vehicle arrived.

GMTA! I was thinking a moment of silence interrupted by farting! That’s what the racist murderer deserves. No respect whatsoever.

I think Obama is going to so capitalize on Mandela's death that, by executive order:

* Flags will be lowered completely off the staff.
* Every day there will be a national moment of silence at the minute of his death.
* Our capital will be renamed "Mandela, D.C."
* Pennsylvania Ave. will become "St. Nelson Mandela Blvd."
* School children will be taught to sing "For he's our holy Mandela."
* NFL teams will wear commemorative patches with Mandela's image, and shoes and gloves in the colors of the South African flag.
* All TV award shows, every presenter and every award recipient, will pay tribute to St. Mandela.
* Anyone who objects or fails to comply will be sent to mandatory sensitivity training.

Big deal -- There are areas like that in almost any large US city. When I lived in Oakland, CA back in the 1990's, there were areas that whites knew they had best avoid even in broad daylight.

One, it is still alive and kicking. I can tell you, IF he were to be gone at some point before I am gone, I will not lower my flag for him. He is not a citizen in my opinion. And, he is not my president. I do not recognize him as my president. I don’t watch any of his speeches, talks, whatever, nor read a word he says. If his face appears on my TV, I immediately change the channel. As far as I am concerned, America is a ship sailing on the seas without a captain, no leader, no leadership at all. Not in the White House nor in Congress. For the first time in my life, I feel I am in a nation that is leaderless, without direction and failing and dying. We can be compared with Mogadishu or some like place. But, that is one man’s opinion.
