Posted on 06/08/2013 4:06:38 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Former South African president and anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela was in a serious but stable condition on Saturday after being taken to hospital with a recurrence of a lung infection, the government said.
The 94-year-old, who became the first black leader of Africas biggest economy in 1994 after historic all-race elections, has been in hospital three times since December. He has been battling the infection for several days, a statement said.

Did someone give him a necklace? This bullNo award winning humanitarian has given so many others that gift.
I’m sure Michelle is out buying a $2000 black dress as we speak.
Well, with Hugo Chavez, Frank Lautenberg, and Richard Ramirez waiting for him in He’ll, there will soon be enough to start a game of Bridge.
Well, his heart was in the right place. NOT! Time to go there super commie. Maybe fidel will be joining you soon. You and he and che will have a great time. You should be used to the heat.
Good! May he rot in hell. I pray for his soul to be appropriately dealt with.
Well, with Hugo Chavez, Frank Lautenberg, and Richard Ramirez waiting for him”
...don’t forget Teddy and John Murtha await as well!
I’m not going to put Mandela up on a pedestal. But, he helped a transition that could have been very violent. He then set a precedent by stepping down when his term was over. How many people have been handed great power and then handed it back?
He was a committed Marxist who did not impose a Marxist dictatorship, and while there could have been horrible retributions against the white South Africans, he did not do it. Neighboring Rhodesia has not been so fortunate, nor has most of the rest of Africa.
Having said that, his successors have not covered themselves in glory. They are in the process of turning South Africa into what the rest of Africa has become.
Looks like you haven’t been keeping up, with all due respect. Plenty of evictions (and murders) of white farmers under Thabo Mbeki. The ANC (thoroughly Communist) will never give up power to any other.
I think I said that his successors have not covered themselves in glory.
Whether or not there is any real basis for it, there is a fairly widespread belief among South African expatriates that the death of Mandela will trigger violence on the level of an attempted ethnic cleansing. No idea where it comes from, but they do believe that.
Neither has Mandela himself. The media has not been too adept at covering what happened during Mandela’s presidency.
Yawn, he is responsible for the hell hole south africa has become.
Especially in that region of the world.
One less commie to worry about.
Buying? Putting it on our tab, most likely. And a mere $2,000? HA! The shoes, maybe!
It will be interesting to see what happens after Mandela...will this be the green light for SA to sink into the Zimbabwe model? I have always wondered if his being alive was a moderating influence.
I won’t be crying any tears for the commie terrorist. He’s another one whose had not one word to say about the genocide of white South Africans. No matter what else one can say, ot mist be admitted that at least under apartheid, the whites fed, educated, and gave medical care to the blacks. I say that not to excuse apartheid, but to show the difference in the groups have treated the group out of power. The ruling ANC is not even taking care of its blacks citizens, much less feeding, educating, or offering medical care to whites as the group out of power. They are turning a blind eye to the white genocide, when they’re not themselves (government officials) singing “Kill The Boer”.
And all the western nations which boycotted South Africa are just as culpable for ifnoring the plight of white South Africans. We boycotted, held concerts, and castigated Suth Acrica until they did the right thing, Now that white South Africans are being brutally murdered and denied jobs, kept out of the economy as best as the black-ruled government can without totally shutting down the country, there’s not a peep from the hypocritical west, including the US.
The whites didn’t genocide the blacks. They gave them education, food, and medical care. The blacks in return are preying upon whites in the most horrendous ways.
That stinking Bono is indicative-he said it’s no big thing that government officials sing “Kill The Boer”, it’s just a “folk song”. Can anyone imagine him having that reaction if a white government official sang “Kill The Kaffir”?
Handing power over to the ANC is not “handing it back”, any more than any general secretary of the USSR ever “handed (power) back”.
More historical revision indeed. Who today knows of the atrocities of Shaka and Dingane? Never mind the softening of the stance against the Second World thanks to people like Carter, who once said Mugabe “exemplif(ied) the finest aspects of humanity” . . .
I didn’t know about Dingane, thanks, I’m going to Bing that. I know I’ll have to slough through a bunch of politically correct bs to find the truth.
The only good commie is a dead commie
This mandala commie has been made some sort of saint. Saint he ain’t. The bum is responsible for advancing the racist murders of many.
Oh gosh /s
..once Mandela goes, I wonder if the threats of white genocide will become a reality...
in his last moments he ought to feel what a hot fiery gas tire necklace he and winnie ordered on so any others, feels like.
and his wife winnie was still in the power structure, at that time.
Hey, Nelson, your old “buddy” the Lautencorpse is waiting for you!
