Retired archbishop Desmond Tutu has said he is happy Nelson Mandela is dead—so he does not have to see what South Africa’s current leaders are doing to the country.

Since Jacob Zuma became president, Tutu has become increasingly critical of the African National Congress (ANC), which has held power in South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994—first under the leadership of Mandela.

“I didn’t think there would be a disillusionment so soon,” he told South Africa’s Sunday Times, before adding: “I’m glad that Madiba is dead. I’m glad that most of these people are no longer alive to see this,” referring to the slow pace of transformation. …

Desmond Tutu has said he is ‘glad Nelson Mandela is dead’ 20 years after South Africa’s first free elections
Oh please. With all due respect, Archbishop Pupu, you knew that this is exactly the kind of South Africa “Madiba” founded. With your help, too.

What bunk.

From memory:

Mandela aligned himself with Russia and with various pro-Communist African organizations as far back as the 1960’s.

The communist ANC was ruled with fire-tire necklaces for anti communists by the Mandela husband/wife cabal.

South Africa is spiraling the toilet? Big surprise. Zimbabwe is doing just fine though, right?

Well, no one wants to admit it, but South Africa was much better off under the Brits. And when they left, it was much better off under the remaining Dutch and British residents.

If they succeeding in murdering or driving out the remaining white farmers and mine owners, the country will really go down the tubes.

Some of the colonial powers were pretty bad. The Belgians come to mind. But for the most part, the Brits ruled well, and did a lot to improve the countries they ran.

I know, we aren’t supposed to say that.

But regardless, its still whitey's fault.

My meeting with Nelson Mandela (1 of 2) Dr. Peter Hammond

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTFhaUYmzV0

Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. He had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandelas MK terrorists.

Invictus never mentions Nelson Mandelas open support for brutal communist regimes such as Fidel Castros Cuba, Robert Mugabes Zimbabwe, Red China, Gadhaffis Libya, Saddam Hussein, Yasar Arafat and other dictators.

No you are not supposed to say any of that.

The liberal line is that sub Saharan Africa has problems due to the legacy of colonialism. It doesn’t matter that these countries became independent decades ago. We’re supposed to blame their problems even today on colonialism and the alleged exploitation which happened then.

I think Tutu is upset that South Africa has not turned into a combination of Zimbabwe and North Korea.

I agree. Mandela (the commie who called us Nazis during George Bush’s Presidency) was one of the most overrated people in world history. The world is a better place without him.

The Brits committed genocide against the Boers.

We see it in our own country, a group of people blaming their problems on slavery, which ended 150yrs ago.

Well, I’d say it was more complicated than that. The Boer War was pretty nasty on both sides.

All I know is odds are, South Africa would be much better off today had the Boers prevailed and kicked the Brits out.
