I'm getting really sick of this racism against white people it's offensive and is only going to backfire on blacks both men and women. This virus didn't affect black women any different than it affected any other person. Stop playing the victim game and join society or get the f out out the country. Getting so sick of you people and your inferior complex and always causing division and trouble.

So is he now "Pissy Donny"?
We've known he was all wet for years.
The idea of the upcoming debate seems to have put his knickers in a knot.
Hope he can find something he "Depends" on to get him through it.

7:32, stop playing the victim game.

There is no "racism against white people"

Charlie Horse said...

Hey Montana... You might consider locking your doors in Malibu due to the illegals running around snatching kids. Consider yourself lucky this time.

Funkin Byrhouser said...

@7:32 that's an awfully racist thing for you to say, all American Citizens have an equal right to claim "victimhood", it's guaranteed in Article One!

I ran several of Boomer Hater/Geezer/Pops/Geriatric Fu*ktard/Old People/Weird/CHUD boy's comments through an online age detection app for written materials and it showed in the results that he is only 10 years old. You can tell his age by his lack of writing skills and his frequent temper tantrums. I'm guessing he dropped out of elementary school, and his mother doesn't know what to do with him. For his welfare, we’ve started a GoFundMe page titled “Save the 10-Year-Old Dumbass."

Elvis Grbac would have fallen down if the kidnapper entered his house.

Lin Elliott would have unloaded his 9mm at the kidnapper and missed every time

I'm glad the steroids have worked well for The Rock's body. Too bad they damaged his brain.

Was entering Arrowhead one Sunday morning for early tailgating.

Looked over to my right and there was Joe Montana in his Ford Explorer.

I waved and he smiled real big and waved back and raised his hands like what's with all the cars this early in the morning.

Good guy and his teammates loved him.

The Rock pumps himself so full of steroids each day his testicles are probably the size of BB's.

Boomer Hater's mom has bigger testicles.
