  1. Whites in America must stop supporting Trump, him & the American government are keeping friendly relations with the racist anc government in South Africa.
    The anc are threatening whites, their land & businesses and the American government are aiding the corrupt anc regime.

    • This situation makes me physically ill. what a betrayal on the White people worldwide, especially SA. When i hear this “Putin and/or Trump worship”, it shows most people are like lame cattle.

      If we have a BRICS economic order, then where is Putin as a Great White Hope for the people under his wing in SA, pathetic; maybe it was fake news but supposedly it was said “Come to Russia and we will give whites land to farm”

      I have got down votes, “cry me a river” and banned from making comments elsewhere for my statement “Trump has too many Sacred Cows and they are all non-white” Undecided for 2020, will probably write in Augustus Invictus
