Twisted propaganda: Linda Sanchez and the AZ immigration law

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez, who asserted quite seriously that White supremacists were behind the controversial Arizona immigration bill, SB 1070, with the implication that those who supported it were also White supremacists, or at least sympathetic to White supremacy. For that, I was accused of “twisted propaganda.”

At PJTV, former Leftist Joe Hicks looks at the origins of Sanchez’s brain-dead assertion, tracing it back to wild claims made by the race-hustlers at the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Hicks’ arguments illustrate the point I tried to make earlier: that by smearing moderate and conservative opponents as racists regardless of their arguments, race-baiting groups such as the SPLC, La Raza, and MEChA, or individual race-hustlers such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, are attempting to stifle their concerns by making them afraid of being labeled as racists themselves while encouraging others to dismiss them as such.

The only point on which I’ll disagree with Joe is his possible implication that Sanchez was just a stupid tool mindlessly repeating smears she read elsewhere. She may not be the sharpest tack in the box, but she’s too experienced a politician not to know that her race-baiting words would be used to bully into silence foes of illegal immigration in her heavily Latino district.

    Why would we refer to La Raza and Mecha as race-baiting rather than just call them racists?

    Race-baiting is a tactic of racists.
