f course the intergalactic class narcissist just can't keep his trap shut. A classic propaganda piece by Andrew Meldrum of the Associated Press makes the fellow who informed Putin before his 2012 re-election that he would be "flexible" after it look like one of the "principled" opposition to President Trump.
f course Obama opportunistically forgets to mention that Although Nelson Mandela was a champion of South African equal rights, and an end to apartheid, that he and his wife were ruthless, brutal advocates of the worst kind of violence. Just do some research on "ANC Necklacing" for a true peek into Obama's "mentor" and "hero". And, yeah, the AP forgot to mention THAT in their Obama puff piece. And yet Obama talks about "strongmen" in regards to the sitting President...when all the alleged DNC hacking and "collusion" occurred on HIS watch when he could have done something to prevent these things. Again, we hear crickets from the AP regarding this dereliction of Executive duty.
Obama’s speech to a cheering crowd of thousands in South Africa countered many of Trump’s policies, rallying people around the world to keep alive the ideas that Mandela worked for including democracy, diversity and tolerance.
t should be noted that Nelson Mandela was a member of the Communist party who advocated violence, as evidenced from a passage in from a paper published in the South African Historical Journal, Vol. 64, No. 3, September 2012, pp 538-563 by Paul S. Landau of the University of Maryland and University of Johannesburg titled "The ANC, MK, and ‘The Turn to Violence’ (1960-1962)": "Lastly, that sabotage would not ‘end with Sabotage only. After that we will go into guerilla warfare’"
t seems that the AP in bending over backwards to lionize Barack Obama has glossed over a true strongman in Nelson Mandela...someone not adverse to using violence and brutality to get his own way. Isn't this kind of press/media behavior the true hallmark of propagandists and agitprop purveyors???
