Wiley Drake & the Fatwa

Need I say more? Wiley’s retort to AU was swift, ferocious — and bizarre. Caught dead to rights, he didn’t even try to respond to particulars of AU’s IRS complaint.

Here he goes again with his jibber-jabber nonsense about the Orange County Human Relations Commission Totalitarian quote of the day From Steven Greenhut: Debate continues over whether to continue funding for the Orange County Human Relations Commission, even though the associated Human Relations Council does just fine with private donations,…
