While world leaders seek to outdo each other in expressing admiration for Nelson Mandela it’s worth asking the question – what kind of legacy has he really left?
Archbishop Desmond Tutu has described the African National Congress government in South Africa as being “worse than the apartheid government.”
The African National Congress were of course Marxist terrorists and they have not changed. Margaret Thatcher expressed the view that anyone who thought the ANC could govern South Africa was “living in cloud-cuckoo land.” As usual she was right. It is depressing that no conservative leader of today would have the courage to express such a view.
The ANC were terrorists, albeit incompetent ones. Mandela was a terrorist and a doctrinaire Marxist. He has left a legacy of hatred and violence. He was not a great man. He was not even a flawed great man. He was simply a terrorist.
