    "White Supremacist" has long been the preferred Jewish epithet for any White people who have the temerity to do what Jews do routinely: openly advocate for their own ethnic interests. This is not, nor has it ever been, "hate".

  4. 24-year-old Chidera Okolo who was charged with assault and armed criminal action.

    I am pretty certain Chidera is not a white nationalist but the local media and black leaders were claiming the mythical boogey man KKK and Proud Boys were vandalizing the church. So stupid.

  6. We all can sleep at night knowing Lady Ga Ga got her bulldogs back and they did not become a dish of Beef and Broccoli at the local China King.

    Now Lady Ga Ga can reapply her peanut butter and let her doggies lap it up.
