Leonard Pitts, Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald who apparently has been out in the sun for too long. In a column that appears today in the Olympian (Olympia, Washington), he is hot under the collar about the way Muslims are allegedly being victimized by an “irrational panic” (as if there were such a thing as a “rational panic”).
Pitts knows a thing or two about “irrational panic.” After George W. Bush won reelection in 2004, he went screaming into the night complaining that social conservatives are “the soldiers of the new American theocracy.”
Pitts, like most liberals, does not see how hypocritical he looks. He needs to cool off.
