Trump and Mandela...


Recommended Posts

So Trump is all miffed and his widdow feewings are so hurwt that Lt.Col. Vindman responded to the call to testify to the US House impeachment inquiry, that he is now attempting to interfere with Vindman's promotion.  Retribution abounds.  And then there was Nelson Mandela...

 

Quote

 

 Nelson Mandela: "After I became president, I asked one day some members of my close protection to stroll with me in the city, have lunch at one of its restaurants. We sat in one of the downtown restaurants and all of us asked for some sort of food."

"After a while, the waiter brought us our requests, I noticed that there is someone sitting in front of my table waiting for food"*
I told then one of the soldiers: go and ask that person to join us with his food and eat with us. The soldier went and asked the man so. The man brought up his food and sat by my side as I asked and began to eat. His hands were trembling constantly until everyone had finished their food and the man went. The soldier said to me: The man was apparently quite sick. His hands trembled as he ate!"
"No, not at all," said Mandela.
"This man was the guard of the prison where I was jailed.
"Often, after the torture I was subjected to, I used to scream and ask for a little water.
"The very same man used to come every time and urinate on my head instead".
"So I found him scared, trembling, expecting me to reciprocate now, at least in the same way, either by torturing him or imprisoning him as I am now the president of the state of South Africa."
"But this is not my character nor part of my ethics"
"The mentality of retaliation destroys states, while the mentality of tolerance builds nations.

 

 
 
The fish rots from the head.  And this country is neck deep in the mentality of retaliation.

POOR LYING CRYING LIBERAL ASSWIPES

 

So in this country, we got Trump, we got congressional Republicans, and we got an electorate half full of the likes of you. 

 

If it hadn't been founded with slavery still in place, I might have been tempted to say that it once was a great country.

To make this country truly great, we much address the many problems caused by slavery segregation and oppression and bring harmony to as many Americans as we can.

Trump is doing the opposite, every day he is president, this country becomes a little LESS great.

People elected Obama to be USA president for two four year contracts, we did not vote for a permanent communist dictator for a completely new legal situation where capturing and selling one classed and grouped tribe of people is a socialist civil right of the new monarchy.

Nor did Obama impose any sort of a completely new legal situation where capturing and selling one classed and grouped tribe of people is a socialist civil right of the new monarchy.

 

You are a fool totally removed from reality, Chongo.
