Here are a just few examples of this week’s interesting discussions:
• It is outrageous for the Obamas to laud and to receive a personally-signed book from Nelson Mandela — a man who was responsible for “necklacing” his political opponents, which involved tying them up, placing a gasoline-soaked tire around each of their necks and then setting them on fire, causing an extremely painful and prolonged death. (11 minutes)
• It is doubly outrageous that Obama would equate Mandela with Gandhi — his polar opposite. Gandhi was a peaceful man, a racial nationalist, and a racial separatist. (15 minutes)
