A moment of silence for Mandela?(Vanity)
Self

Posted on 12/07/2013 12:29:10 AM PST by L.A.Justice

Apparently, at one sporting event in America, there was a moment of silence for Nelson Mandela...

I listened to the beginning of a volleyball game at Univ. of Nebraska...(The NCAA division one women's tournament is going on.) The game audio was streamed on the school website.

The announcer said that there was a moment of silence for Nelson Mandela...

I don't mind a moment of silence if some former US President has passed away...But, not the former president of South Africa...

I would not be too upset if there were a moment of silence for someone like Winston Churchill...But, Mandela is no Churchill...

English Premiere League clubs are going to honor Mandela this weekend...A moment of silence followed by a moment of applause...Remember, when Thatcher passed away, the Premiere League refused to require clubs to have a moment of silence...I guess "not honoring" Mandela could be considered racist...I think Thatcher deserved just as much respect as Mandela...

I guess you don’t know that Nelson Mandela was a black man? Please turn yourself in to your nearest USSA thought crime reeducation center.

At “Commentary Magazine,” a RINO publication, Jonathan Tobin called Mandela one of the greatest men in history and compared him to George Washington because he gave up power voluntarily.

My memory is vague on Mandela’s rise to power, but I seem to recall that he never passed up an opportunity to align himself with Marxist Africans.

A moment of silence...

Great idea. All the better to hear the multiple raspberries!

Oh, let the Liberals have their fun.

They are getting their collective butts kicked over ObamaCare.

2014 will be a bad year to be a liberal, so let them have their moment. Maybe we can get Celine Dion to sing for them...

Those observing silence for Mandela should set fire to a tire and wear it as a necklace.

He directed the murderous operations of Umkhonto we Sizwe for years. And today, the Boer farmers in ANC-controlled territory are on genocide watch.

The Black Arafat gets no silence from me.

Its beyond irritating

All I can say is 20 years in what became a very very soft prison taught him to try for pragmatic ends

And tempered what had been a taste for indiscriminate violence against innocents

He gets credit for that

“All I can say is 20 years in what became a very very soft prison taught him to try for pragmatic ends.”

It was an entire 27 years and all of that time he had a swimming pool, private quarters, a cook and all the visitors he wanted.

The Mandela apologists try to paint a narrative that he was in the little cell that Obama visited and exploited for his own political purposes.

Turning a Marxist criminal into an international hero. Ovomit has ordered flags at half staff for this killer. Lowered US flags are for US citizens, not foreign criminals.

It’s even worse now. Mandela has been channeled into Obama’s psyche.

Dies, should read Died. My excuse for my mistake is that English is my second language.

I propose a national holiday to go along with the only holiday that honors a person in the history of this once great country.
Look for an international holiday
to honor the greatest person that ever lived.

Yes, let’s have a moment of silence for a communist who condemned our country, hated Israel, consorted with terrorists, and helped destroy a country. What a great idea. (snicker)
