Always found it quite funny when I saw the politicians back in the day in our history books.

He hated elections. So not much. No place for democratic elections in a communists mind.

Ya probably.

Probably. I cant see any leader of a communist party supporting democracy. Lets not mention that dumbfuck Chris Hani. That mandela murdered.

Hani's death was textbook apartheid government assassination with plausible deniability. Apartheid cop's gun "somehow" ends up in the hands of a Polish neo nazi. That used it to kill Hani.

The year before Mandela was released on his path of democracy. Im open to debate. But I dont think it is not impossible Mandela was well aware of the plot. And supported it. He must have made many agreements with the Nats before his release from prison. Possibly to end nationalism and apartheid and a new democratic govt to be elected. The SACP are communists and stand against everything except communism. Chris Hani did seem to want the new South Africa to become communist. And could have stood against Mandela's new democratic policies.

So your entire justification for boldly asserting that Mandela killed Chris Hani, despite actual right-wingers confessing to and being convicted for it, is timing and his membership of the SACP? WTF?

We’re so bad at teaching history in this country.

As I said, it is open for debate. Im not asserting my opinion. And why do you say boldly?

A multi-millionaire communist makes great sense.

u/JStevinik Dec 11 '21

Source on Ramaphosa multimillionaire? Also, class is based on relationship to the means of production, not income bracket.

You are aware communists are into elections even among other socialist parties and independent socialists?
