Nelson Mandela Not a Terrorist.

17 January 2014, 08:44

I am surprised and a little saddened that so many white people still believe that Nelson Mandela was a terrorist.

To me, that’s a bit like a Nazi getting uppity about Jewish people – most definitely not in a position to judge.

The same goes for whites.

Unfortunately, prior to 1994 we were in fact the baddies! Yes people, we were the Nazis of the apartheid war and the blacks were the Jews. Sorry folks, but we were, and the whole world (and history) knows it.

In fact my dear ostriches, you know it too.

So pull your heads out of the sand and enjoy what Mandela gave us instead of trying to claim the moral high ground.

We all know the current ANC is a balls-up, but if they lived up to Nelson Mandela’s standards we would be in a better place.

And before you get all nostalgic about the ‘good old days’, remember they weren’t so good.

They were days governed by Verwoerd, Vorster and Botha et al with that confused mess the SADF as their personal Boerbul.

Now some of you may have served in that very defence force . . .

Yes sir, perhaps you were the terrorist!

I mean, how else do you describe an army that murders its own women and children?

Zuma is not the problem

What amuses me is the way people think that if the Zuma goes the problem will be fixed… I am an old ex-factory worker who is looking at the frenzied hand wringing round the no confidence debate and its inevitable outcome.  Read more...
