  •  I'm really happy about this -- it's always good (15+ / 0-)

    when the hidden agendas of bigots surface. It's like Rachel Maddow exposing the words of the co-author of Arizona's (and other states now) immigration laws:

    Hethmon worries about cultural shifts that could result.

    Immigration is “on track to change the demographic makeup of the entire country. You know, what they call ‘minority-majority,’ ” said Hethmon, who is general counsel at the Washington-based Immigration Reform Law Institute. “How many countries have gone through a transition like that — peacefully, carefully? It’s theoretically possible, but we don’t have any examples.”

    The anti-immigrant bigots can pretend all they want that it's about competition for jobs or the rule of law or whatever, but when you get down to it, it's the same thing as Brunstetter's wife: they want to preserve the whiteness of America.
    They're dinosaurs.

    We're not perfect, but they're nuts! -- Barney Frank
