Indeed. What a horrible man.
There's a trend among the far right that, whenever Mandela is brought up, they giggle with contrarianism and start chittering about what a horrible terrorist he was. Some of these clowns post regularly in South Africa-themed threads and this one is no exception.
It's been said again and again: Mandela used violence to fight oppression; when liberty was achieved, he succesfully advocated for a peaceful reconciliation. Christ! What a bloodbath it could have been if Mandela was really the monster that the far right thinks he was.
