Since the announcement of Nelson Mandela's death Thursday, the media have been in a virtual wall to wall tribute to his life and legacy. Yet not everyone thinks they're painting an accurate picture of the man.

Quite the contrary, Cornel West told CNN's Jake Tapper Friday, "We are witnessing the Santa Clausification of Nelson Mandela" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Amazing.  Contrary to continued media reports and even by some here, a faint touch on reality.

First comment:

Thank you, Cornel. A progressive finally acknowledges what I've been saying since he died: he's a radical communist who engaged in lovely practices like "necklacing" (hanging a used tire around someone's neck, filling it with gasoline and lighting it on fire...Santa Clause indeed).

BUT...

He is black, he has been deified by the progressive media and Obama loves him.

Game over.

December 7th...a date which will live in infamy. Exemplified by Google's main page today. They pay homage to the important event of the day. Never mind that...oh, what was it...some accident in a Hawaiian port way back when...:

In the world we live in today, Pearl Harbor was nothing more than 'workplace violence', or one may say 'a man caused disaster'.
 
America is no longer approching 'the cliff', we have already jumped off of it. Nothing left but to continue to fall. That is all there is.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

Cornel West "I think no doubt we are. I mean, Nelson Mandela's a spiritual giant, moral titan, and political revolutionary. We are witnessing the Santa Claus-ification of Nelson Mandela. We turned the revolutionary into an old man, a huggable old man with toys in a bag, smile on his face, no threat to anybody, domesticated, tamed, and no longer really full of the fire. But we know at 95, brother Nelson Mandela was still full of fire. He had that militant tenderness and subversive sweetness and radical gentleness tied to refusing to be fearful or intimidated in the face of a vicious white supremacist apartheid regime."

Good.  That's the best way to defang someone.
