Nelson Mandela is one of those secular saints that the mainstream media, and, for that matter, most Americans, believe can do or say no wrong.

Here’s something this very flawed man said about Castro’s Cuba (h/t Jay Nordlinger):

“There’s one thing where that country stands out head and shoulders above the rest. That is in its love for human rights and liberty.”

As for the good Mandela did for his native South Africa, well, the country has been going down the craphole these past two decades. Something has driven out the most productive whites, who are re-settling in Britain, Ireland, and other English-speaking and free countries. Of course; all those who left are racists. Unlike the ANC, which is, and always has been, merely a peace-loving collective of machete and AK-47 wielding thugs.

Nelson Mandela is a fellow-traveler of tyrants, one who is blind to tyranny. Did he do some good? Possibly. But it is hard to admire someone so morally blind.
