I admit I find the wingnut extreme opposition to immigration puzzling. I mean, yah, I get it. It's a more respectable manifestation of racism, and I get racism. But as it's a respectable manifestation of racism, it's just a diversion from the real impulse. I get it, you hate brown people, and don't much care about (white) Scandinavian and Irish intruders in our midst. What I'm trying to say is... why is it so satisfying as a political issue when for most people it isn't the real issue?
