The media is trying to make Mandela into some kind of black mother teresa.

Nelson Mandela was no hero and no saint – quite the contrary

Your link says he pleaded guilty to 156 acts of violence, but in truth he was charged with four counts of sabotage.

The real truth what's driving all of this media frenzy is liberal white guilt.

Is anyone watching the memorial service for Mandela now? I don't get why there are so many people in the background who are cheering, smiling, dancing and mugging for the camera like they were at a soccer match rather than at a funeral service. Can these people not stay quiet and be respectful even when someone is being laid to rest??

Pretty much the only people who act like they are at a funeral are the foreigners.

This is not a funeral, it's a celebration of a person's life.

You wouldn't like the funerals I preside over, many times we have laughter. I believe it is better to celebrate one's life rather than everyone sit around and be sombre. Where I live I am now known as the funeral guy as families ask for me to preside over the funeral of loved ones, even if they belong to another church. They want a celebration not a downer.

Typical right wing hate and bigotry - very predictable (as is any response from the right to this post).
