He pisses on Beck from a great height. The condescending tone seems a little odd though, given how thoroughly his guys are about to get thumped. Hitchens says the Tea Party is all about white insecurity. I live in multicultural California and send my kids to a school where whites are in the minority. It doesn't seem to me it's about race. Plenty of Asian and Hispanic Americans seem to me just as upset about how things are going and our leftward tack. Maybe it's just too hard for a British intellectual to understand how Walmart shoppers think. Good grief, in San Diego, nobody cares about white. I don't think the Mexicans moving to Otay Ranch (google it, Hitch) to escape the narcos are crazy about the idea of an open border either. This isn't Europe and it's not about race. Whatever it is, it's a lot more complicated than that.
