  1. It’s open season on anybody white. The background, whether religious or not counts for zero. And if you have at least some white pride…watch out! If you are a white nationalist, well you just have to be killed, no questions asked. And where are our politicians we in North America voted for in our so-called democracies? IT appears they are in league with the media promoting white genocide. Aren’t you thankful we pulverized NS Germany in WW2. After all, the leader of that nation promoted white pride – WE CAN’T HAVE THAT!!! said the chosen.

    • Yes- it’s been 300 years of ((mob)) inciting mobs to ‘free ((Barrabus)) & execute Christ’.The mentalities of Judas Iscariot, Pontius Pilate, & the ((money changers)) haunt all in-your-face media & ‘education’, & ‘religion’. Hopefully an exceptional generation of counter ((chosen)) is on the way!
