“Give Mandela a break, Babalu! Geeez! You guys are BEYOND hopeless!” (Fine, we’ll start on Desmond Tutu)

Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandelafree_the_five

"Free The Cuban Five!" says the other South African saint Desmond Tutu. From the BBC:

The letter details what it says was the unfair trial of the five men, the refusal by the US authorities to grant visas to Ms Perez and to another of the wives, Olga Salanueva, for several years, and restricting other family members to visits just once a year.

The signatories include 10 Nobel laureates, among them Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, German and Portuguese novelists Gunter Grass and Jose Saramago, and Guatemalan indigenous rights campaigner Rigoberta Menchu.

    So have these champions of justice and freedom ever signed a public document calling for the release of ALL Cubans, millions of them, from their oppression by the totalitarian and godless Castro tyranny? Hell NO, and they've had over 50 years to do it. That means they're posturing hypocrites and FULL OF SHIT, most especially Tutu, given what he is officially and formally supposed to be. They are all disgusting and deserve zero respect, but Tutu is downright repulsive. The best one can say for him is that he may simply have taken Castro-generated propaganda at face value, but then again, why would a man of God trust ANY communist regime? Or is one supposed to excuse him on the grounds of mental retardation? Talk about a scandal.

    From the first time I heard people raving about him, ca. 1985, I could just not stand the sight of this bishop doodoo. He immediately struck me as a complete fourflusher, a smooth-talking, whiny, publicity-mongering shill for communist rats and their genocidal schemes.

    How convenient he shows up during the Reagan Era, to bedevil President Reagan and subvert South Africa over to the soviets.

    Just could not stand the sight of doodoo. How could he possibly be unaware of what the castro crime syndicate did to Cuba? The good bishop is no kid, he's been around, and he surely reads the papers. Just another in a long line of useful idiot subversives.

    As to his crony mandevil, necklacing tells us everything we need to know.

    The demonic duo. There, I said it. And if feels good to call bullshxx these two genocidal commie flim-flammers.

    Oughta do it more often.

    From the first time I heard people rave about him, ca. 1985, just could not stand this bishop doodoo. He came across as a phoney-baloney useful idiot whining commie shill. He and his crony mandevil turned South Africa into the most dangerous country in the world, as well as the rape capitol of the planet.

    Way to go, bishop doodoo, you genocidal jerk.

    There. I said it. feels good to say it. OUghta do so more often.
