Today in Disgusting People

Take your pick:

We all know Ann Coulter as one of the intellectual lights of the conservative movement -- which goes a long way toward explaining how the conservative movement became what it is today.

If you're not familiar with Jared Taylor, here's some background via Joe.My.God:

Some background on Taylor via his Wikipedia entry:

Taylor is an American white nationalist and white supremacist. He is the founder and editor of American Renaissance, a magazine often described as a white supremacist publication. Taylor is also an author and the president of American Renaissance’s parent organization, New Century Foundation, through which many of his books have been published. He is a former member of the advisory board of The Occidental Quarterly, and a former director of the National Policy Institute, a Virginia-based white nationalist think tank. He is also a board member and spokesperson of the Council of Conservative Citizens.

Yes, that’s the same National Policy Institute that threw a party for neo-Nazi leader Richard Spencer at which audience members delivered Nazi salutes in the name of Donald Trump.

This calls to mind that old saw, "Lie down with dogs. . . ." The problem in this case is figuring out which is the dog and which is the flea.

For more on the "Speak English" bill, here's some background. Looks like another one of those bills that no one likes except Trump and the bigots who drafted it.
