This post by Digby was too good not to pass along. Real Americans Love Racial Profiling:
Chuck Todd subbing for Chris Matthews:
"There's growing evidence that Americans are willing to put up with racial profiling if it means their safety."
What do you mean "Americans" white man? I suspect Hispanic Americans, African Americans and Arab Americans tend to see their "safety" in slightly different terms.
But then they aren't Real Americans, are they?
I'd like to see the racial breakdown of that poll Todd was citing. As Dave already noted here, being a racist and in the majority doesn't make you right. Polls on Arizona immigration law remind us of a historic truth: Discarding the civil rights of others is always a popular idea. It would be nice if the Chuck Todds and Hardball producers of the world and their cohorts in the media took some time to read it. No instead Hardball had Tom Tancredo on and treated him as though he had something valid to say on the matter. I guess Michelle Malkin or David Duke weren't available.
