Dick Cheney – He supported keeping Mandela in jail and went on to say he stood behind his decision.


Grover Norquist – He’s the head of the American Tax Reform who went to South Africa to quell the anti-Apartheid movement.


Jeff Flake – He’s a republican Representative who personally represented companies that were pro-Apartheid in the 80s and 90s.


Ronald Reagan – He called the apartheid nation of South Africa as a “good country.”


Jack Abramoff – He headed the International Freedom Foundation whose responsibility was to shed a positive light on apartheid and a negative light on people like Mandela.


The National Review Online – They released an article linking Mandela to Hussein around 2001 when Mandela didn’t want to support another war.
