Do you think that old drag queen Chuck Zito will kill Tara and then Chuck try to get with Jax so he can become queen of the gang? Do you think that pussy Chuck will fight the God of the USA hells angels or do you think Kurts sutters cunts will follow sutteres lead and maintain the silence treatment like nasty high school girls ? They should can the hells angels and just use real actors like this guy.
No point in helping the USA hells angels in their war against American women and children the angels are winning that war with out Kurts help.
