Not mine - his wife is a murderous terrorist who bragged about "necklacing" people who opposed them, putting a tire filled with gasoline around their necks and lighting it on fire.

Not sure if I would call him one of my heros. He was a freedom fighter, and fighting for rights is not always pretty.

But IMO flying the flag at half staff should be reserved for American occasions. Let Africa honor him with their flag at half staff.

12/7/13 the flag will be at half staff in remembrance of Pearl Harbor. But it looks like that may be overshadowed by Mandella.

We will all remember Pearl Harbor regardless of what oblamba does.
He and his followers will try to divert the ocassion, but, us "True" Americans will not forget.
Seems We are getting fewer as time goes on though.

Nelson Mandela was a radical Marxist and a firm advocate of abortion, pornography, homosexuality and legalizing prostitution, according to a prominent Christian missionary who was summoned to the home of the South African president.
Read more at ‘Nelson Mandela was a radical Marxist’ I was not making this up.

Well, since the article was written by a Christian missionary, I have no doubt that the author is looking at it from a greatly different perspective form myself.

Abortion = FREEDOM of choice
Pornography = FREEDOM of press
Homosexuality = FREEDOM of choice
Prostitution = FREEDOM of choice

To paraphrase Voltaire, "I may not agree with your choices, but I will defend your right to make them.

I am not trying to change anyone's mind on Nelson Mandela. I just want to point out that there are many different points of view to look at. I do not agree that the American flag should be lowered for him.

Was Mr. Mandela a perfect man? No, but no one is perfect
It's easy for some to tear down his accomplishments from the comfort of a soft chair. It's easy to judge a man's actions when you have a full belly and a warm home. He did much to tear down an oppressive regime and for that he earns my respect. Maybe not my admiration, but my respect.

The way a man discards his shackles is of little importance, as long as his hands are now free.

Sinmply ask the question, would you be content to live under apartheid?
Or would you do anything necessary to be free?

You can justify a lot of actions with this motto. If you commit terrorist acts using this as your mantra, you will quickly become what you despise, and worse. For certain you will become something I will despise and actively oppose.
