Mainstream Conservative Organization Defends American Renaissance

When the media, including "conservative" Fox News, was promoting the claim that Jared Loughner had ties to American Renaissance, the conservative media watchdog organization Accuracy in Media stepped in to refute their claims.

What's interesting about this is the language that AIM used to describe Amren.  Normally conservatives parrot liberals and label such organizations as racist, white supremacist, neo-Nazi, and/or anti-Semitic.  Instead, AIM referred to Amren as a "conservative publication" and described it as "on the right side of the political spectrum and is politically incorrect because of its criticism of racial preference and “diversity” programs and immigration policies that weaken the strength of a country."

This is a nice development, but I'm still not holding my breath for the Tea Party movement to come to its senses on racial issues.
