What timing:

Obama keen to see Madiba

By Peter Fabricius
June 23 2013

Johannesburg - US President Barack Obama hopes to see Nelson Mandela when he visits South Africa this week – but only if Mandela’s health permits and the former statesman’s family approves....

“I met him once. He was the kind of dumb you are when you don’t know the language. But he knew the language.”

The world communist media can build any POS to a “world leader” to the adoring dumb masses.

Case in point, 0b0z0 got the Nobel Peace price by achieving nothing on similar world communist media drumbeat. On the contrary, he killed a lot of civilians by expanding what he’s most fascinated by, drone strikes.

Obama is probably trying to get Mandela’s death scheduled to coincide with his big Africa trip next week (June 26-July 3). He never misses an opportunity to grandstand, especially about racial matters.

If anyone can do it - The Obamessiah can. Remember when his Hawaain grandmother died in ‘08? Bammie managed to cremate the old Typical White Person and toss her ashes off a cliff between campaign speeches.

The social consensus the Mugabe forged, however imperfect, will probably not last long after his death. South Africa may come to resemble Zimbabwe. There will be demagogue majority politicians who will demand it.

New Evidence Shows Mandela Was Senior Communist Party Member

http://www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/africa/item/13920-new-evidence-shows-mandela-was-senior-communist-party-member

Excerpt:
The ANC and its terrorist wing, founded and led by Mandela, were dominated by the Communist Party as well, and the influence goes back decades. “No major decision could be taken by the ANC without the concurrence and approval of the Central Committee of the South African Communist Party,” former ANC and SACP leader Bartholomew Hlapane testified before the U.S. Congress before being executed by an assassin. Support from the communist terror regimes ruling China, Cuba, and the Soviet Union for Mandela, his ANC, and the SACP is also a matter of historical record.
