Mandela chose to stay in prison because he refused to renounce violence. Comparison offensive to jews.

The 27 years that Nelson Mandela spent in prison was not because he criticized the apartheid regime. It was not because he wanted to create a rainbow nation. It was not because he decried the poor treatment of blacks under apartheid. It was because he had admitted to running terror campaigns including the infamous 1983 Church Street Bombing which killed 19 and wounded over 200. Nelson Mandela plead guilty to over 150 acts of public violence. Mandela was in prison for terrorist bombing, killing hundreds of innocent people, many children. Mandela was repeatedly offered the opportunity to walk out of prison if he simply renounced violence but he consistently refused to renounce violence. He chose to stay in prison because he continued to advocate for terrorism, political acts mass murder to in order to gain his objectives. His objectives were not freedom for the blacks. His objective was destruction of capitalism and the imposition of a communist dictatorship in South Africa. That is not liberty for the blacks.

These are facts that have been established for many, many years because there is this fantasy about the ANC and Saint Mandela and so on. The ANC was a group Nelson Mandela was part of.

The African National Congress (ANC) was designated as a terrorist group by the US State Department, many intelligence agencies, and many governments around the world.

Here's a report by Stefan Molyneux (Jewish) on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzsAYmYzRdE

Nelson Mandela was in prison for terrorist bombings and necklacing (tire filled with gasoline to burn people alive) blacks who didn't support him. The video compares them to the jews who were slaves in ancient Egypt. The jews back then didn't go around harming the Egyptians, that was G-d.

Mandela can't even be compared to the Palestinians in Israel who regularly do bombings because the Palestinians don't do necklacing like Mandela did.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, there was a communist group called The Weather Underground who did 25,000 bombings, about 5 per day. Even they didn't do necklacing. Today the members all work for UC Berkeley so there is a comparison to Mandela who was made President of SA.

Mandela who burns people alive is not a positive role-model. The people active today who do bombings and burn people alive are the people involved in the scandals in the UK in Rotherham, Birmingham, Northampton, Rochdale, Sheffield, and now Telford. The people doing this are foreign mercenaries paid by the UK govt to be there and the UK police and government-run media cover it up.

please stop with the disinformation

The wife of Nelson Mandela, Winnie, was involved with necklacing, not Nelson Mandela. Please get your facts straight. It’s not as if you cannot find the correct information by doing some basic Internet research. Come on. It seems that all you want to do is whine.

It is to the great credit of South African jewry that a higher proportion of them knew enough to act against apartheid than either Anglo white or Afrikaner (Dutch) white citizens.

Mandella

Mandella is a poor choice to offer as an example. He was a communist and died a communist. He never offered a word of repentance for the murders he and his wife committed. Being incarcerated rightly or wrongly does not grant one licence to commit further crimes
