On Racist Cockroaches

Abby Zimet

It's hard to know what to do with the racist rantings of people like
Rep. Steve King, who was mouthing off again this weekend at some "United
We Stand Against Brown-Skinned People!" event. Does reporting it give
it credence?  Does ignoring it give it permission to stand? Does
analyzing its hateful fearful roots help anything? Here
it is.

King said he only supports amnesty for illegal immigrants if,
"Every time we give amnesty for an illegal alien, we deport a liberal."
