    The fuehrer of the pro white family values REPUBLICAN Party has just thrown more RED MEAT to his groveling base by ending the DACA program.

    I am aware that the poll was taken before President Pud’s action on DACA.
    The numbers would have been even more favorable for the stinking bigots if the poll was conducted today.

    Ahhhh…. yes, Fox News watchers.

    Gullibly sucking up the racist propaganda with a serving of a nice happy white face and a side of blonde tits.

    You’ve got to remember that these are just simple Trump-loving conservatives. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new GOP. You know… morons.

    I don’t comprehend how anyone with any political awareness can believe anything else. White supremacists are a tiny population of poor, uneducated, politically unconnected nobodies trying to protect statues.

    Meanwhile, the news media is massive, wealthy, in bed with any number of politicians and has the capacity to sway public opinion on any number of issues.

    You got that right! Sean Hannity of Fox News is not only in bed with the self consumed, racist, sexist pig, REPUBLICAN President Pork Chop Pud, he attempts to sway public opinion in favor of Trump’s Lies all the time!

    Oh yeah, your tiny population of poor, uneducated, politically unconnected nobodies trying to protect statues have made it very clear that they want to kill black American Citizens to “make America great again!”

    I’ll take “69 Percent of Republicans” for $800, Alex.

    That could go on forever.
    There could be a week’s worth of Jeopardy Shows on that category.

    @Mister Bluster:

    If white supremacists want to kill black American Citizens, they should probably take some pointers from other black American citizens because the black body count from white supremacists is pretty damn tiny.
