Ted Cruz really steps in it this time: he said nice things about Nelson Mandela

by digby

So Ted Cruz wrote a tribute to Nelson Mandela on his Facebook page:
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.
Here is a sampling of the responses of his Facebook followers:
Tom Griffin
Sad to see you feel this way Ted. He was a terrorist. I guess you have only seen the Hollywood movies

Why don't all you Mandela lovers head on over to South Africa and see what's going on now that "Mandela's people" have control of the nation. And no staying in palaces ala Sean Penn and other "entertainers" ... get out and mix with the people, experience what life is really like. Especially if you're white.

This would be the time to just stay silent on the subject. Mandela admitted to tossing grenades into school buses occupied by children and his wife was a proficient practitioner of the tire and gasoline combo around the necks of her victims...

Just look up "necklacing" (a form of murder endorsed by his wife at the time) to see what a fine man Mandela was.

Mandela was a white hating killer and his wife continued his tradition. .including torture and immolation of enemies. With Rev. Tutu they tried to help the east Germans in Angola to invade and take over S. Africa. He remained tribal and killed other blacks not of his tribal affiliates. Honoring him is like honoring the Prince of Darkness

I am disappointed in senator Cruz. Mandela was not a good human or a defender of freedom, he very much was an avowed communist.

Ted, long before you were born, his reputation was the complete opposite. He was, in fact, a terrorist and a criminal, he persecuted and killed Zulus All the apartheid B S you hear in today's media, is all lies
And apparently one of his other major crimes was supporting women's rights:
He was also a huge supporter of abortion! Don't put him too high up! Careful Mr Cruz.

Uhm...maybe not so much. My friend's post: I see that the convicted terrorist and abortion-lover Mandela has finally met the Maker whom he never acknowledged as far as I know.

That's the tip of the iceberg. There were a few people who agreed with Senator Cruz's words,or took issue with the comments but not many.

Who are these people?
