Praising a dead communist who led the movement against the former conservative, Western-ruled South Africa is what passes for the Right in the USA. Shameful. If Tennessee were to secede from the USA, perhaps our leaders would not feel so obligated to pay tribute to such men as Mandela.

Why would anyone with an once of integrity or sense praise a child murdering commie terrorist? That is what Mandela was. Only now as he is burning in hell is he getting the justice he so richly deserves.
