7 Nelson Mandela Quotes You Probably Won’t See In The U.S. Media

7. On the U.S. war with Iraq:

“If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.”

6. On Israel:

“Israel should withdraw from all the areas which it won from the Arabs in 1967, and in particular Israel should withdraw completely from the Golan Heights, from south Lebanon and from the West Bank.”

5. On the U.S. war with Iraq:

“All that (Mr. Bush) wants is Iraqi oil.”

4. Mandela on Castro and the Cuban revolution:

“From its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution has also been a source of
inspiration to all freedom-loving people. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of the vicious imperialist-orquestrated campaign to destroy the impressive gain made in the Cuban Revolution. … Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”

And more.

Bottom line: Nelson Mandela was a Marxist who hated the United States. Since that attitude corresponds with progressive thought in America, it will not be mentioned in the current weep-fest over Saint Mandela’s death.

In the end, the left in America has turned Mandela into the same sort of icon as Che Guevera, another communist butcher.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Yah, back when he was prez of ZA, I was thinking that the cheers and genuflections by much of the US were misplaced. Just what we needed, another anti-American commie terrorist leading a nation.

    But now we in the US have Obama, who fails at being an anti-American commie terrorist only because he doesn’t have the balls to be a terrorist.
