I got into a bit of a discussion with a liberal relative about Mandela's death earlier today. She believes that all the negative remarks going around about him are attributable to conservative slander and racism.



I looked online for some strictly factual history about the man and his activities, but all I can seem to find are liberal sources fellating him and conservative sources crucifying him. Can anyone point me to a good reference that won't be instantly dismissed as "right wing slander"?




Thanks.

Straight from the horse's mouth:

I don't know about you all, but when I saw this today, it just was the final nail in the coffin.

I have quite a few South African friends. Both black and white. Mandela was not any of things that are being said about him. He was anything but a nice man wrongly imprisoned by white racists. There is a reason its called a Mandela necklace.

Yup...and the "usual suspects" celebrating his life prove it even further.

The fact is that even Amnesty International refused to take on Nelson Mandela’s case because they asserted that he was no political prisoner but had committed numerous violent crimes and had had a fair trial and a reasonable sentence.


Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. He had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.


South African President P.W. Botha had, on a number of occasions, offered Nelson Mandela freedom from prison, if he would only renounce terrorist violence. This Mandela refused to do. - Invictus Idolatry
