Robert at Stormfront did this research:
What about federal civil rights laws? Does NJ Transit get federal money? They could claim Weinstein fired him for not being Jewish or Muslim, but being a White Christian whom Bill Maher spreads hatred and disdain towards along with other MSM outlets. White Christians are a group subjected to open hatred by Jews in the media and from government and academia. So this could be argued as a basis of a civil rights claim against Weinstein and NJ Transit. Take the Jew rules to the Jews. The 1964 Civil Rights Act was written by Jew Norbert Schlei to stick it to Christian Whites North and South.
This appears to this observer to be obvious discrimination against one of the few Founding Stock Americans still living in New Jersey. This is ethnic cleansing by Ellis Islanders of FSA’s.
This is another reason for the South and Appalachia to seek separation from our rulers. Let them keep New York City and some coastal zones in New Jersey and a few other places. We should take our historic lands with us in the new country: Founding Stock America.
