Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks Doubles Down: Democrats 'Waging a War on Whites'

Remember Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks, who is a Republican, and his statement earlier today that Obama and the Democrats are "waging war on white people?"

Ted Nugent Says He Never Called Native American Protesters "Unclean Vermin," Except He Did Because They Are

Republican Rep. Mo Brooks: Obama and Democrats Are Waging "War on Whites"

Congressman Mo Brooks, who is from Alabama and is a Republican (what are the odds?) told wingnut radio host Laura Ingraham today that the GOP's intransigent hardline stance on immigration isn't going to hurt the party with Latino voters.

Steve King to Obama: Please Don't Make Me Impeach You Over Immigration

YouTube Yes, folks, the Republican Party is threatening the President again over immigration; this time it's far right Rep. Steve King on Fox News Sunday, saying "none of us want to do it" (yeah, right) but if Obama forces them into it they'll have no other choice but to start impeachment...

Republicans Are Upset at the Word "Torture" - Not the Act of Torture

Friday Night Immigration Jam: Los Lobos - Will the Wolf Survive?

YouTube The video's several years old and low resolution, but with the House Republicans' vote for a deranged racist anti-immigrant bill that has no chance of passing the Senate, I can't think of a better song for tonight's jam than the Los Lobos classic "Will The Wolf Survive?"

It's Max Fisher, but most of this is factual -- and there's one pullout I've highlighted below that Max got exactly right. ToI had the sense to take this post from a blogger, not a journalist, down quickly, so I don't see it as representing the Times at all, or...
