25 years ago, the idea of a Black U.S. President visiting a Black governed South Africa to pay homage to the victorious anti-apartheid struggle would have seemed hysterical to many. How things can change.
Leaders from all over the world gathered in a Johannesburg's FNB stadium to honor the passing of Nelson Mandela in a rain soaked ceremony filled with thousands of mourners. In what was the one of the largest gatherings of world leaders in recent history and watched by millions around the world, President Obama addressed the cheering crowds to give thanks for the life 'Madiba', a man he described as a 'giant of history' and 'the last great liberator of the 20th century'.
Westboro Baptist Church has hit upon probably the fastest way possible to eradicate themselves from existence: Protest Nelson Mandela's funeral in South Africa.
Dinesh D'Souza, a man who made a career out of smearing President Obama using every dishonest tactic in the GOP handbook, is almost certainly going to jail after pleading guilty on Tuesday to a campaign finance law violation.
Westboro Baptist Church revealed their strategy to The Daily Banter for going to South Africa and picketing the funeral of the nation's most beloved son. Needless to say, it wasn't pleasant.
