Hating "Illegal Immigrants" Can Make You Say the Damnedest Things: Congressman Joe Wilson's YOU LIE Moment at Obama's Health Care Speech
Lately, the Tex[t]-Mex Galleryblog has been railing against the rise of fascism in the United States, an insidious blend of patriotism, ignorance, and Mexican-hating that has made it open season on Latinos and Latinas from New York to Texas, from Pennsylvania to Utah. The rise in hate-based crimes, fueled by the fetid kerosene spewing out the mouthes of Limbaugh, Dobbs, Beck, Coulter, Hannity, and their ilk is making it more and more likely that race and race-hatred will continue to typify the American dasesin far into the 21st century. Hit the image above for NPR's coverage of the Joe Wilson shoutout to the President at last night's health care speech to the joint houses in Washington.
