Nelson Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, ‘Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.’ Because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now free.
We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.Sounds pretty reasonable, right? (Maybe some subtext about standing in principle against Obamacare). But it's a decent statement of condolence over the death of Nelson Mandela, a man that millions revere as one of the foremost transformative figures of our time.
Shockingly enough, this was written by the usually morally and sanely-challenged Republican Senator Ted Cruz.
But when you are part of crazy town, they don't let you leave. Check out his Facebook page and the comments. The ugly, racist, disgusting comments. Even Ted Cruz, wackaloon right-winger isn't far-right enough for these folk.
