  • A response to some bakwas from “Harry’s Place”
    Yep, they got bored over there at Islamophobe Central and so they thought they’d make up some nonsense. The mistake they made is that they thought I would ignore someone making up rubbish and that I wouldn’t respond. Aha, I did. A while back, and…
