2655 bearsheperd Brits yelling “make America great again”?
3179 throwawaystowawayjr Is there some sort of symbolism behind holding the American flag up that way or is he just an idiot?
1818 Netherspark Had to go and read who the "white pendragons" were. All I could find were a handful of bad youtube videos about "taking back control from the tyrants" and about how they're "growing strong" and "putting the government in panic mode". Oh and a bunch of *donation* requests on paypal. Soo, pretty much a tiny delusional English nationalist group that seems to exist almost entirely on internet forums and youtube and have about 7 members. They apparently believe something, but it's not particularly clear what that is. The name though should give you some clue. *Pendragon* is King Arthur's surname, and I wonder what the *white* part is referring to.... Edit: And apparently they have links to the EDL (english defence league). I think we now know all we need to....

4117 Americatcp Why would they hold a fucking American flag? For pro-Brexit? Probably because they were shouting pro-trump while holding the flag, also while holding it wrong like an idiot, making his views even more laughable looking
603 propanololololol Why were they calling for his arrest? I understand that they vehemently disagree with him but what do they see as an actual crime?
