Life and Death

Gawker has a good rundown on what the Right's greatest heroes said about Nelson Mandela in real time.  One example:
Ron Paul: James Kirchick gave a good rundown of Ron Paul's hardline racist newsletters in a 2008 New Republic article, including this tidbit regarding what the newsletters had to say about Nelson Mandela: "South Africa's transition to multiracial democracy was portrayed as a 'destruction of civilization' that was 'the most tragic [to] ever occur on that continent, at least below the Sahara'; and, in March 1994, a month before Nelson Mandela was elected president, one item warned of an impending 'South African Holocaust.'"
Of course, no one will mourn Ron Paul's death and no one will ever cite a contribution Ron Paul has made to anything anywhere.
