sean smith, state dept diplomat that got killed in libya, was known as vilerat, moderator of debate and discussion forums somethingawful dot com, as he was chatting with his Eve Online buddys he got killed by rouge gunman. Hillary clinton said in a speech that he was "important on the internet", and yes he was, but also an asshole



here he is with his real life counterpart. i can remember having fights with this guy on the forums before about dumb stuff, he was not culturally conservative but he was pretty to the right on economics and foreign policy and laughably argued that colonialism in africa was justified.

Quote
Africa would have been subjected to a bloodbath of proportions unseen in history if the white man hadn't destroyed their culture first.

Examples I point to are as follows -

The Zulu nation was happily destroying not only all of it's neighbors, but many of their own people as the leadership happened to be certifiably insane. Shaka for example had a small penis (actually historically accurate) and killed thousands of people because of it. The zulu empire was actually not the bad one as the Matabele under Mzilikali after his loss to the zulu, took his tribe and conducted a scorched earth campaign across the lower section of africa destroying all in his path.

Lets not forget the laughable Xhosa girl Nongqawuse who said she saw visions that if everybody killed off their cattle and burned their fields the dead spirits of their ancestors would grant not only tenfold cattle in return, but destruction of the new white Anglo/Boer civilization in the southern cape. Needless to say after they slaughtered and burned everything no ancestors were forthcoming and 25 thousand of the Xhosa tribe died.
The tribes of africa were largely barbaric and vicious groups of people who really only understood killing for the most part. There were exceptions to the rule as there always are, the hottentots, and various smaller tribes, but for the most part african culture was set up to destroy other cultures to begin with.

I'm not going to say that they are better off having been colonized by the europeans, but the alternative was pretty vicious as well.

just remember that life is short even on the internet tell the people u love that u love them before its too late :spot:

Sean "Vilerat" Smith debuts his new ink. He was a goofy guy, but does that mean its ok he died? No. Pay your respects here, its the custom in somethingawful culture to give money to the grieving departed. just put all your money in this box and ill dump it in his coffin later i swear

if back to the future has taught me anything, it is that being killed by libyans is regrettable but preventable. wear your lead vests, kiddies
