Do not ever forget that Reagan and all his young Republican acolytes all hated Mandela, and wanted to see him rot in prison forever. It was the same old excuse they use every time: Mandela was a dirty Commie Pinko, don't you see?

All those Young Republicans who completely supported Apartheid, and hated Mandela? They are the asshats still running the GOP today.
