Re: You Don't Have To Be White To Be A White Supremacist

BTW, the Knights Templar were dissolved, and their Grand Master executed, in the early 1300s, on accusations of heresy, by the Pope.

Probably trumped up charges ... :D ... but nobody tell Allan, hmmkay?

He'd be showing up at a battle of wits unarmed. Somehow, I too doubt it. He'll never debate her.

He won't debate his opponent either, just say weird stuff about him being a vampire, and whatever else. :roll:

He said he didn't know who David Duke was, either.

Re: Christian Walker is Unloading On his Dad

White supremacism is an ideology, not a race or phenotype.

And as it has been pointed out, you don't even have to be white to subscribe to the ideology.

I think his lawyers are just trolling the libs, but even if they weren't, that's the most original defense I think I've seen since the infamous Twinkie defense.

He's still a mass murderer, whether binary, nonbinary, or hexadecimal. :roll:
