Johannesburg - This is not a third-world developing nation. This is Europe.

These are prosperous middle-class people. These are not people trying to get away from areas in north Africa. They look like any European family that you would live next door to.

This isn't a place like Iraq or Afghanistan.

This is a relatively civilised, relatively European city where you wouldn't expect or hope that it's going to happen.

This is World War Three: There are 195 countries in the world, but who cares if it's only two European countries at war. Only 193 countries are member states of the United Nations. Nobody is bothered about those 2 nonexistent bantustan countries that are non-member observer states - the dreaded Holy See and the always bickering State of Palestine.

We don't speak highly of wars that are not detrimental to our financials, nor our racial representation, if we speak of them at all.

This is World War Three: Europe’s worst security crisis since the end of World War II.

Forget about the relatively recent conflicts on the continent such as the Bosnian war in the 1990s, and the Northern Ireland conflict that lasted from the 1960s until 1998.

We don't keep wars, we export them to countries that we previously colonised.

Right now Russia is making us look bad in front of the darkies.

Imagine hundreds of thousands of civilised whites suffering from cold, hunger, having no electricity, and water shortages after being bombarded by Putin’s forces.

We can't live like savages in villages.

Imagine white bodies lying lifeless in the streets and local officials having to dig mass graves. What an abomination.

Suburbs turned into slums. Grottos into ghettos.

Russian forces are still creeping ever close to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

They need to protect themselves from that extreme gangster, that ranting madman, Putin!

Therefore, we will glorify any white person engaging in armed resistance, and obviously condemn it if people of colour do the same. You don't give a loaded AK-45 to an ape.

A resistance is only a resistance if it's carried out by Europeans.

A molotov cocktail smashing the windshield of a military tank is only resistance if it's Ukrainian.

Anyone else doing the same, especially those Palestinian Hamas against Israel, is a terrorist.

We will openly fundraise for the Ukrainian military equipment, the good white people there need to arm themselves. And we will gladly freeze PayPal accounts of anyone trying to raise funds for medical supplies for Cuba.

PayPal donations with the words “Palestine” or “Syria” will be set aside. Keep up, we have already told you about Hamas.

At this point, you should not be perplexed by the paleness of people we prioritise out of Ukraine.

Yes, boycotts, divestments, and sanctions are legitimate actions against an occupying force. Boycotting an occupier is neither complicated nor controversial. We chose who is the occupying force.

Russia is banned from more sports. But the Israel national football team will play two international friendlies against Germany and Romania this month.
