It was unavoidable. Barack Obama had a kind word to say about Nelson Mandela in the wake of his death, so following the far-right's policy of maintaining 100% partisan division, they are now obligated to condemn him.
Joseph Farah, the king of the crazies himself, has done so with a column titled "Don't Mourn for Mandela," in which he denounces the civil rights icon as a racist, a Communist and a terrorist.
"Apartheid was inarguably an evil and unjustifiable system," he writes. "But so is the system Mandela’s revolution brought about – one in which anti-white racism is so strong today that a prominent genocide watchdog group has labeled the current situation a 'precursor' to the deliberate, systematic elimination of the race.
"In other words, the world has been sold a bill of goods about Mandela. He wasn’t the saintly character portrayed by Morgan Freeman. He wasn’t someone fighting for racial equality. He was the leader of a violent, Communist revolution that has nearly succeeded in all of its grisly horror."
Farah later condemns Mandela for "23 specific acts of sabotage and attempting to overthrow the government."
Joseph Farah must now answer this question: Why does he employ people guilty of the exact same offenses he now condemns Nelson Mandela for?
