Squib of the Day: September 27, 2010

Do these baggers have any idea how ignorant they look?
"When this country does manage to get beyond its narrow-minded bigotry, it’s not by insisting that racism is a rare aberration and gasping in surprise, but by openly acknowledging the utter depravity of our condition and doing something about it. Our great civil rights movements—against the majority’s delusions about race, gender, and sexual orientation—have always known this. By pretending as if Islamophobia, anti-immigration, or the Tea Party are odd and temporary, we excuse ourselves from taking them seriously, and from seriously fighting against them"
—Garrett Baer, "Yes, Mr Kristof, This Is America," at Killing the Buddha.
