    until recently, the republican rubes could be counted on to grok the difference between Cubans (good, though brown. They hate Castro, have $, and vote Republican) Puerto Ricans (kind of americanish, but boy, there's a lot of them, and why do they keep coming to the mainland?) and Mexicans (eeewww!).

    Now, thanks to the supremacy of dog whistles and overt, mutant, ugly ugly ugly racism coming from their party's standard bearers, that distinction is quite lost. All that's left is; OMG, BROWN!! BAD!BAAAD!.

    somebody help me out here; Townhall.com is a reasonably well-visited site, yes? The overt racism displayed in these comments was not long ago the kind of thing you simply did not see in print unless you went looking for it. Now it's comfortably tossed about by a lot of people, seemingly with no concern about they come across. I get that the intertubes are all about echo chambers, but just how the hell did this kind of spew get out of the darker KKK alleys of the web?
