Countering a Demagogue

Raising Kaine did a great service today by publicizing some brave filmmakers who are documenting the scapegoating of immigrants that is occurring in Prince William County.

I hope they can find some average Prince William County residents to go on camera. I'm sure the average voter, though they may tell poll takers one thing and may very well re-elect Stewart, isn't nearly as proudly racist as that one guy who couldn't abide hearing his cashier at Home Depot speak Spanish. I think if more voters could hear from the silent plurality out there who are in denial about the realities of immigration, legal or otherwise, they would feel safer listening to their own hearts and consciences and not demagogues like Stewart.
