Okay, Newt, let Americans try the way Mandela did to get out from under the yoke of Obama. What would happen? And is SA really better off now? What about the white farmers? Newt, you just jumped on the Mandela bandwagon. Anyway, I have no respect for you so I don’t really care what you say about anything.
Why do you put yourself in the position of defending the Apartheid regime, which was more oppressive than Southern segregation ever was? Never as bad as the Belgium Congo at its worse, or German East Africa, but an unjust regime nonetheless. Thanks to Mandela, South Africa has not become one of the hell-holes found to the North. Not yet, anyway.
So you are arguing for apartheid? His ruling and the ANC post-Apartheid is bad. But you simply are being foolish or worse if you are going to downplay what he accomplished before the ANC ruined that country.
