Salon contributor David Sirota applauds AP's stand against 'dog-whistle bigotry'

Good news for those four or five people who read the Associated Press’ hand-wringing death notice for the term “illegal immigrant” and wanted more. Salon’s David Sirota applauded  the AP’s move as a “big victory for objectivity and against the propagandistic language of bigotry” — and not just your everyday garden-variety bigotry, but dog-whistle bigotry:

Thus, as any honest person can admit, when Republican politicians and media blowhards decry “illegals,” they are pretending to be for a race-blind enforcement of immigration laws, but they are really signaling their hatred of Latino culture.

Before you xenophobes race to defend yourselves against charges of bigotry, consider this: do you really want to go on record as disagreeing with GOP superstar Gov. Chris Christie?

Why can’t you white people be more like your hero and presidential frontrunner, Chris Christie?

Yeah, how is it, exactly, that “only” white people are complaining? Do white people even read Salon?
