    Default White Supremacist Leader Murdered In South Africa

    BBC News - S Africa far-right leader Terreblanche 'killed'

    South African white supremacist leader Eugene http://www.politics.ie/newthread.php...23Terreblanche has been murdered, local media reports say.

    Mr Terreblanche was beaten to death on his farm in the north-west of the country, the reports said.

    Mr Terreblanche and his Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (Afrikaner Resistance Movement - AWB) came to prominence in the early 1980s.
    Just breaking news on BBC right now. I've no idea what the state of white supremacy groups are right now, but I'd expect violent repercussions over this if it turns out to have been an attack by blacks.

    Murder is a very strong term for the likes of Terreblanche.

    To my delight and surprise, Nick Broomfield's wonderful "The Leader, The Driver And The Driver's Wife" is on Channel 4's channel on YouTube in its entirety. Well worth a watch for a reminder about the extraordinary and quite appalling Mr. Terreblanche, RIP:

    Remember seeing that on television years ago. Must take another look at it. Thanks for the link. Although if I remember rightly, if you take out the bits about Broomfield himself there's not a lot left.

    The positive aspect of this is that it's being reported as a simple crime over money as opposed to a race issue

    The two allegedly attacked the 69-year-old far-right wing leader because they were not paid for work they did.

    The murder of whites in South Africa is nothing new:

    The article says it was about wages with employees. If it was racially motivated I do not think we will hear about it.

    White supremacy, especially in South Africa is dead.
