Case 1. An officer (Nelson Mandela) of a terrorist group, and branded as such by the U.S. State dept., (the ANC) is convicted by an independent judiciary in a courtroom crammed with international observers of: “The preparation, manufacture and use of explosives, including 210,000 hand grenades, 48,000 anti-personnel mines, 1,500 time devices, 144 tons of ammonium nitrate, 21.6 tons of aluminum powder and a ton of black powder. 193 counts of terrorism committed between 1961 and 1963.”
“The trial has been properly conducted,” wrote correspondent Anthony Sampson (who later wrote Mandela’s authorized biography). “The judge, Mr Justice Quartus de Wet, has been scrupulously fair.”
Here’s Amnesty International (no less!) explaining why it refused to list the media’s hero-saint as a political prisoner: “Nelson Mandela had participated in planning acts of sabotage and inciting violence, so that he could no longer fulfill the criteria for the classification of political prisoners.”
Mandela’s tribulations take place in a nation 8000 miles from the U.S. that–far from ever presenting a national security threat to the U.S.–in fact fully cooperated with the U.S. during the Cold War by fighting Soviet proxies in southern Africa. (granted these proxies were Castroite troops so their ROUTING was a laughable cakewalk, ask any South African army vet.)
The terrorist convicted by the “scrupulously fair” South African judge becomes an international hero. And upon his release from prison, he along with his wife are feted deliriously when visiting the U.S.
Case 2–a non-violent Human rights activist is beaten to death (90 miles from U.S. shores) by Stalinists shrieking NIG*R! Worthless N*GER! His mother is repeatedly set-upon and often beaten by regime-sanctioned mobs. The regime that sets these mobs on the helpless mother of a non-violent Human rights activist came closest to nuking the U.S., refers to the U.S. as a “Vulture Preying on Humanity!” and helped train and harbor virtually every terrorist group on earth…
So which regime’s victims get the Red Carpet treatment in the U.S….?
