Close Your Eyes, Can't Happen Here

I think the thing that surprises me the most is that this comes as a surprise:

Huge street protests made millions of immigrants more visible and powerful last year, but they also seem to have revived a hateful counter force: white supremacists.

Groups linked to the Ku Klux Klan, skinheads and neo-Nazis grew significantly more active, holding more rallies, distributing leaflets and increasing their presence on the Internet — much of it focused on stirring anti-immigrant sentiment, a new report released by the Anti-Defamation League says.

Gee, I wonder why this could be...

Could it be because some of our more... ardent Congressional delegates are playing to these folks' interests, to the point where Tom Tancredo attended one group's barbecue?

Could it be because Lou Dobbs has been raising the specter of illegal immigration during every single one of his shows, to the point of using a well-established hate group as a source for one of his pieces?

Could it be because Glenn Beck faces absolutely no penalty from his higher ups after asking America's first Muslim Congressman to prove that he's not with the terrorists?

Could it be because David Duke is brought on The Situation Room and allowed to steamroll Wolf Blitzer with allegations that he is a "Jewish extremist"?

I wonder...
