Birtherism and the ecology of fear | mexmigration: History and Politics of Mexican Immigration.

Excellent analysis of the birthers and xenophobes. I actually thought about the connection between these two seemingly separate mobs, so I’m glad that others, like the author of this post, have picked up on it.

Another thing that I found interesting is the use of the term “Republicrats.” Not only is it right on the money, but it reminds me of a similar term that I coined, “Demopublicans.”

In any case, follow the link above and read the full post. It’s very informative.
