On Thursday, Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak said a big difference between the late South African leader Nelson Mandela and President Barack Obama is that Mandela embraced constraints on his power. Pollak said the mainstream press are unlikely to understand and mention that while discussing Mandela's legacy and emphasized that South Africa's more statist turn after Mandela should be a warning to the United States about how quickly freedoms and liberties can erode if a nation is not vigilant.
