Terror in South AfricaNelson and Winnie Mandela, once husband and wife, sure think alike. During Mandela's trial they produced 90 pages of documents in his own handwriting. These documents all showed that he really was nothing other than a communist terrorist. He never denied that he had written it. One of those was entitled "How to be a Good Communist." In one document Mr Mandela addressed the issue of "sellouts". He advocated "cutting their noses off". As you can see, from what happened in Zimbabwe one should not think such comments are intended as jokes. When these people speak of cutting parts off of living humans they're not joking. In Angola, the breasts were cut off living white women and other whites were sawed in half at a timbermill.Winnie Mandela once said that they would liberate South Africa with boxes of matches. Here are a few reminders that it wasn't a joke. More than 400 black South Africans were murdered in this way. They poured petrol on them, put a tyre around them, and with their sick macabre humour referred to this as a "necklace." People were stoned, stabbed and burned alive.Most of these people were black. Many people outside South Africa may remember seeing film footage of crowds of blacks engaging in the murder of these unlucky individuals. You never saw white people murdering blacks like that because it never happened. But those people who conducted those murders are now the government of South Africa. ...
Very Important: This racist flyer is being spread among Black people across South AfricaDate Posted: Thursday 11-Jul-2013[I received this scanned image of a racist flyer doing the rounds among black people in johannesburg. I urge people to be on the lookout for extremist black racists who are advocating action against whites. This type of thing has to be watched closely. These people are inciting racial hatred and trouble. Note the reference to whites as "the enemy". I find it funny that after 19 years of black voting and black rule that they still have a need to blame their failures in self-governance on whites! During this time, whites were milked for trillions of rands in taxes and used by their politicians whom they voted for. I really think they need to get a life and grow up and stop pointing the finger at us when they had all the power for the last 19 years.]
