    Twisted and hate filled individuals like Forde may be but we need to recognize that the appeal of bigoted scapegoating and incitement to violence isn't limited to such clearly pathological characters. Such types associate themselves with tendencies like the Minutemen and the Tea Party precisely because it gives them entree to a far broader audience of potential dupes than they could ever access on their own. People who, absent the propaganda that relentlessly plays on grievances both real and imagined to promote a paranoid xenophobia, would pass for normal, albeit conservative, folks.

    Nothing human is alien to me.
