The Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder posted the story “Nelson Mandela symbolizes the essence of a human rights fighter“
Nelson Mandela is an authentic historical hero of the highest order. One irony is that his oppressive racist enemies, who now hypocritically praise him at the time of his death, validate his hero status as a champion of human rights.
Leading the hypocrisy parade is the government of the United States. The U.S. officially considered Mandela a terrorist and kept his name on the U.S. terrorism watch list until 2008. Many living members of the ANC are still on the United States terrorists list.
