Nelson Mandela and Tommy Robinson

EDL leader Tommy Robinson has compared his history of violence with Nelson Mandela’s struggle for freedom in South Africa. Challenged by Scrapbook over his own convictions after a prominent EDL activist was jailed for attempted arson of a mosque, Robinson suggested the Nobel Peace Prize laureate had a “far worse” record than he did:

The message follows on the heels of this chestnut from Robinson’s far-right colleague Nick Griffin:

Nick Griffin on Nelson Mandela

As offensive and deluded as ever.

  1. Nelson Mandela never tried to enter the US on a false passport nor was he imprisoned for violent conduct. Naturally, those that claim that Mandela was a “terrorist” are engaging in a relativistic argument. The UK government openly supports terrorists, when they’re the right kind of terrorists.
