David Neiwert Is My Hero

If you read one blog post on the internet today, read Neiwert's superb recent post on the anti-immigration racists at Orcinus. If you don't have time, among the highlights are:

An Arizona legislator claiming that illegal immigrants have no right to be marching down our streets.

A right-wing blogger saying that solution to our immigrant problem is to follow Buffalo's solution for getting rid of their rats. Neiwert points out the long history of dehumanizing your enemy by comparing them to vermin, racism, and eliminationist rhetoric.

Read it. In fact, read all of Neiwert's posts.
