Four U.S. Presidents, current and former, will attend the funeral of Nelson Mandela. Upon his death, flags were ordered flown at half mast. Nelson Mandela, no matter what one's opinion of him, was indeed a historical figure who sacrificed much to end a morally evil system of government that denied rights to citizens based upon their race. He was of great service to the transformation of South Africa.

Conservatives are not “worthy” of adoration don’tcha know.
***Margaret Thatcher Was Less Worthy of U.S Respect Than Nelson Mandela?***
No. Not by a long shot.
Only in the bizarro world of America hating ‘Rats.
If America says something is bad, it’s good.
If America says something is good, it’s evil incarnate.
The American Free Press reports that at the trial of Mandela and the 19 other members of the terrorist group he founded, with whom he was captured (half of whom were white communist Jews), the prosecutor said that the munitions they possessed were sufficient to blow up a city the size of Johannesburg.
Simple - Barry’s a communist honoring the communist Mandela.
Thatcher was the antithesis - she was instrumental in the defeat of the Soviet Union.
The standard rule of state funeral attendance is that to show respect, the representatives sent should be of equal or greater stature than the deceased.
By that measure, NO ONE from the current administration should have been within four miles of Margret Thatcher’s funeral.
Mandela on the other hand...........
But being raised up as a pop culture hero negates any and all evil things someone ever did. Probably get an award for increasing tire sales. (Goodyear necklace anyone?) Similar to billy boy aires. Pop culture hero.
The FDOTWH (Bo) might qualify to attend. As far as lowering the flag............... I’m way over this non stop flag lowering. My truck had a flat tire last week and nobody demanded that the flags be lowered. Why not just leave them at half staff and then raise them on the rare occasion when something good happens.
If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They dont care for human beings.
The more you hate America the more we honor you?!
I’m glad you notice this garbage too. I am so sick and angered by constant flag-lowering. If not at US level, our commie governor is lowering the state flag for the death of a retired policeman and every other stupid reason. I swear flags are lowered so much I don’t even KNOW why mostly, and ask my husband if he knows when we meet again. Ever since 9-11 we’ve gone weak-kneed over every little thing not to mention massacres that have nothing to do with the health of the government.
Yep. I can recall the flags at half-staff maybe, maybe 3 times as I grew-up. Like the standing ovation, it has lost all meaning
WESTERN LEADERS WEARING WINNIE’S NECKLACE TO MANDELA MEMORIAL
Nelson Mandelas funeral is a time for praying not preening
By Judi McLeod Monday, December 9, 2013
Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George and Laura Bush will all figuratively wear a necklace at Nelson Mandelas memorial tomorrowthe Winnie Mandela necklace that is the most grotesque one of all time.
The prime ministers of Canada and Britain, Stephen Harper and David Cameron will wear the necklace, too. But none of the world leaders at the Mandela funeralDaily Mail touted as the biggest funeral in the world since Winston Churchillwill hear the screams of the young blacks who died in agony wearing the Winnie Mandela necklace.
Time and the politically correct era can never wash away the Crime of Humanity foisted on the blacks of South Africa when Communist African National Congress (ANC) freedom fighters and liberators sent hundreds to their death via the burning tire necklace.
The crime of the so many black brothers and sisters chosen for Death by Necklace? Suspicion of being too friendly to whites.
ANC members would take black people and hack off their hands or tie them behind the persons back with barbed wire. Then a gasoline-filled tire would be set alight around the victims (traitors) neck and they would slowly and very painfully burn to death. (Wiki.answers.com).
Videos of Death by Necklace, not for the sensitive, still exist. One shown in the 1980s to Toronto Sun reporters witnessed the death of a young black woman, who even in the agony of her torture, was so modest she tried to control her billowing skirt, will never be forgotten by anyone who saw it.
Its not as if western world leaders stampeding their sympathies at the Mandela memorial and state funeral can pretend they never knew.
Winnie Mandela, who will prominently attend funeral services of her late husband, was upfront about her belief in death by necklace.
Winnie Mandela famously screamed to thousands at a large open-air rally in 1985/86: with our matches and necklaces, well liberate this country!, implying that those who do not take ANCs side will be burnt alive. Such threats by Winnie Mandela could very well be considered terrorism against the very people she claimed to intend liberating. (Wiki.answers.com)
Exiled members of the ANC were taught about necklacings and torture techniques at terror-training camps in places like Angola (e.g.. Camp Quatro) and Mozambique.
Nor can the Obamas, the Clintons, the Bushs, the Camerons, the Harpers and all other Mandela funeral attendees pretend that necklacing is too far back for them to remember:
The spectre of necklacing showed its ugly head again in 2008 when foreign blacks, mostly Somali, Zimbabwean and other refugees were being set alight by their brothers and sisters in what was called the 2008 xenophobic attacks. (VG.no May 25, 2010)
Slogans such as one rope, one sellout, one bullet, one white baby and kill the boer (white/farmer) are still heard in SA today. In fact, a case of genocide has been made against 12 or 13 SA leaders, including the President (Jacob Zuma) and the ANC Youth League President, Julius Malema. According to the Rome Convention, incitement to commit genocide is also a punishable offence and the ANC has launched several appeals against court decisions that kill the boer is hate speech and incitement to commit genocide. The matter is being investigated by the ICC in The Hague. Shortly before the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa, Winnie Mandelas staff was in the news for threatening a gun-store owner, and saying: July 12 all whites will be killed.
Like a pack of braying donkeys, world leaders will gather in South Africa preening for the cameras that will send their pictures world-wide to celebrity watchers.
But phony braying, and crocodile tears notwithstanding, some still remember the bone-chilling screams of South African blacks burnt alive by the unspeakable evil of ANC necklacing.
Nelson Mandelas funeral is a time for praying not preening.

I don’t know but I’m guessing Obama knows this song...
Transformed into what? The people that write this contorted historical BS are no better than the so called progressives.

Thatcher had two strikes against her.
1) She was conservative
2) She was white
Just as the left went on to deify Kennedy, so it would appear that the Left is on a course to deify Mandela.
> Margaret Thatcher Was Less Worthy of U.S Respect Than Nelson Mandela?
Only in the eyes of Obama and Liberals.
Least we forget the Winnie Mandela Necklace, a tire put around the neck of a enemy, filled with gasoline and then set on fire to kill the victim.
“...Why not just leave them at half staff and then raise them on the rare occasion when something good happens....”
You do realize the the flag would never see the top of the pole under this regime.
I bet National Review probably didn’t have as much praise for Thatcher as for Mandela. Mandela to them was the most revered leader ever, he had “unmatched moral authority”.
“We” don’t. I do not honor the sob. Of course, I do not honor Obama either. People tell me that I am in a very tiny minority.
I too was annoyed that Obama was attending this funeral, while skipping Lady Thatcher’s. Upon reflection, I’m glad he didn’t attend, and I suspect that Maggie is happy that he missed it also.
I seem to smell the stench of appeasement in the air.
I Think this Thatcher quote would be appropriate at Mandela’s services.
This regime and some conservatives are just appeasing the ignorant rubes with this farce.
