Despite the dog and pony show currently in progress, Nelson Mandela was a Communist. He rotted in jail for 27 years for a good reason, he tried to overthrow the South African government. He was also the mediator for Libya in negotiations about the Pan Am bombing in Scotland and it is believed he was instrumental in the release of the guy that was in jail that did it. Besides dignitaries and others connected with the aids movement it will be interesting to see who shows up for his funeral. Also, now that Billy Graham is circling the drain, it will be equally interesting to see who shows up or doesn't show up for his funeral, hear that Leroy?

As far as I'm concerned, another Communist has just wound up on the dung heap of history, and I cannot understand why the Flag of this Once Great Country is flying at half mast.

Senator Cruz took to his Facebook page to say of Mandela’s passing:

“Nelson Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, ‘Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.’ Because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now free. We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.”

Ted Cruz
