    Eugene Terreblanche killed in South Africa [edited]

    This story really gave me some very uncomfortable mixed emotions.

    BBC News - Eugene Terreblanche killed in South Africa

    My first reaction was that the World would be a better place without one of its few true remaining Nazis. But I don't believe in killing and I don't applaud anyone's death, not even a figure of towering hatred such as Terreblanche.

    What is a rational response to the violent death of someone who preached violence and racism?

    As a South African. I can tell you this will have serious reprocussions. This smells of a cover-up. If it was a racially motivated attack, some of his remaining followers will retalliate.

    I hope I am wrong.

    If he believed in violence and racism, and his end was met with such beliefs, how can you feel bad for the man?

    Stormfront boys are going to have a field day with this.

    I guess I feel that if the hate-mongers antagonise the ordinary, peaceful, non-extremists to the extent that they (we) feel good about a pretty gross act of violence against them, then they have scored some kind of sick, pyrrhic victory. If we want a World in which hatred does not have the final word, then this is Terreblanche and his philosophy saying, "I KNEW you'd see it our way eventually!"

    Does that make any f***ing sense?

    Kindof.

    I don't feel good about this man's death. I don't feel anything. To hold contempt for a man like this grants him more attention than he deserves.

    I think the problem is this. You have to understand in Rural South Africa, white farmers have been brutally murdered for years. 3000 since 1994. Crime in South Africa is off the charts. Because in South Africa, its not enough to break into your house and steal everything you own. They have to rape your wife, possibly your daughters, beat you, torture you and kill you. This is the reality of the South African world.

    What this murders says to White Extremists everywhere in South Africa who otherwise may have remained dormant is.

    "This will happen to you unless you take action"

    What action that entails is entirely dependant on, if there is a cover-up going on here. If it was a politically and racially motivated attack. I think we will see responses from the White Extremists once more.

    Sort of, but its human nature to bash the brains out of somebody who brings you much misery, so i wouldn't say the ordinary man wouldn't find pleasure in his demise as i consider myself pretty ordinary in that sense and am glad he has been permanently silenced.

    On the other hand he was killed by a couple of black dudes so he has had no victory in any sense of the word whatsoever. Its quietly ironic and to many a degree humorous.

    I dont sanction violence, dont get me wrong. But i would be a liar if i said to you i wasn't glad the son of a bitch is dead.
