Every Great Leader has a DARK SIDE including Nelson Mandela.

Every Leader has a dark side including Nelson Mandela.

The DARK SIDE of Nelson Mandela.

MUCH of the sanctimonious grieving for Nelson Mandela is not just a sin against history – but a danger.

It is true Mandela rose to greatness. Freed after 27 years in a South African jail, the anti-apartheid fighter emerged not bent on vengeance but healing.

He negotiated a peaceful end to apartheid, and as the first president of democratic South Africa, preached – and practised – reconciliation. In this he was great. A healer. An inspiration.

For many whites abroad, he seems even Christ-like – someone who’d suffered for the sins of white guilt, and absolved those who believed in him of the sin of racism.

But Mandela was no Christ nor even Gandhi nor Martin Luther King. He was for decades a man of violence. In 1961, he broke with African National Congress colleagues who preached non-violence, creating a terrorist wing.

He later pleaded guilty in court to acts of public violence, and behind bars sanctioned more, including the 1983 Church St car bomb that killed 19 people.

Mandela even suggested cutting off the noses of blacks deemed collaborators. His then wife Winnie advocated “necklacing” instead – a burning tyre around the neck.

Mandela argued the apartheid regime left him no option but to fight violence with violence, but it is too easy to claim events proved him right. His legacy is not yet played out.

World leaders, musicians continue to weigh in on the life of human rights icon Nelson Mandela. Julie Noce reports.\

Current president Jacob Zuma until recently still publicly sang the anti-apartheid song, Shoot the Boer, in a still-divided country where many white farmers have been shot.

Mandela’s support for other leaders of violence is even less forgivable. He maintained close ties to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and backed Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat. As president in 1997, he gave his country’s highest award for a foreigner to Libya’s dictator, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who’d donated $10 million to the ANC. He gave the same award to the corrupt Indonesian president Suharto, who he said had donated $60 million.

He supported Nigerian coup leader Sani Abacha, refusing to say a word publicly to stop the 1995 hanging of activist Ken Saro-Wiwa.

I repeat, Mandela did great things. But many of his more radical supporters in the West now use that greatness to wash clean his record of political violence – and his support for dictators who’d used it.

That is dangerous. – Courier Mail

Chaen’s view

If you have worked closely with these great leaders and revolutionists you mentioned you would have seen many of their dark sides. The very dark side of Mandela – he was a terrorist.

Fidel Castro brought the world closest ever to nuclear destruction in history with the Bay of Pigs.

Chairman Mao was more interested to promote the Cultural Revolution which destroyed millions of Chinese families. Education in China stopped for nearly 2 years. 50 million died of starvation because of his revolution.

Paramount reformist leader Deng Xiao Peng sent army troops to crush and massacre nearly 3,000 Chinese on June 4, 1989.

Mahatma Gandhi was sex-crazy.

Martin Luther King Jr. plagiarized.

Lincoln‘s presidency had its dark side. Most infamously, the Great Emancipator suspended habeas corpus in 1861–62, allowing the indefinite detention of citizens without trial. According to “Lincoln Unmasked: What You’re Not Supposed to Know About Dishonest Abe” by Thomas DiLorenzo
