The New Republic Editor Martin Peretz is a bigoted asshole

I mean, at least Fox News couches their hysterical Islamophobia in polite-speak. Martin Peretz, the editor-in-chief of The New Republic, on the other hand, eschews propriety and lets the bile just roll out:

But, frankly, Muslim life is cheap, most notably to Muslims. And among those Muslims led by the Imam Rauf there is hardly one who has raised a fuss about the routine and random bloodshed that defines their brotherhood. So, yes, I wonder whether I need honor these people and pretend that they are worthy of the privileges of the First Amendment which I have in my gut the sense that they will abuse.

It really isn’t hyperbole here to suggest that the next line in this “logic” is rounding them up.
