Two morons posting back to back. The first moron comes in with a blatantly racist statement because if Obama wasn't black, he'd never make the inference.
Next, we have Babe who just called Mandeal a terrorist. One of the world's greatest leaders of principle and a guy with incredible intestinal fortitude, is somehow a "terrorist"?
You said you attended college, right, Babe? May I ask where you went to college? Was David Duke your professor by chance?
RIP Nelson Mandela. He helped change the world for the better.
Have to completely agree with you on all points...
Mandela was no terrorist...he was a victim of a supremely terrorist-reactionary state...there is no genuine and knowledgable source who says otherwise unless they are a member of the KKK or American Nazi Bund...not even that bastion of right wing hate known as Fox Noise Network thinks he was a terrorist. Mind numbing blindness to what happens in the real world...
Mandela was a leader in bringing divergent and devided peoples together. In South Africa he used sports to bind generations old wounds. His is and will always be a legacy of peace and love, of brotherhood and forgiveness.
Comrade Melly, we often have commmon ground but ur wrong on this and owe me an apology. i will hold my breath til you acquiesce. there's a difference b/being racist and racialist? UNFORTUNATELY, THERE AINT MANY WHITE GUYS WHO HAD TO FIGHT FOR THEIR FREeDOM IN THE LASt 500 years esp from other races.. got that? its a coincidence of fate or race if u will.. is there a white mandela? is there a white guy in our lifetimes who had to fight another race or pigment to get out of their lands or to give them their basic human dignity or rights?
Lots of white people fought lots of other white people for independence, liberty, freedom and from a different form of slavery called taxation. Want to guess who those white people who won were? Let me give you a hint...you wouldn't be posting here with your crazy stuff if they lost.
You're saying that freedom of speech would not exist had we remained part of the United Kingdom? The last I heard, the UK was a pretty free place. In fact, in some ways, speech is freer there than here.
You heard wrong. One of the things that's been pushed throughout Europe (successfully) and is being pushed everywhere by the UN is blasphemy laws. In much of Europe to include England you can be prosecuted for "racism" or inciting hate. This is of course defined however its convenient. This is not freedom of speech, it allows the government to control what can be said by people. While people may think its great to be able to punish people like the KKK for speech they dislike there is a real problem giving the government the power to decide what speech is "hateful". How would the NAZI's define hate speech- anything that criticized them, same with Stalin, etc. Free speech with exceptions is not free speech. By its very nature, speech that needs to be protected is the unpopular speech. Only protecting speech you agree with is just nonsense.
