Green Rascim?

Richard Lamm, the former Democratic governor of Colorado is learning what it's like to depart, even slightly, from leftist dogma. Among the names he is being called include "racist," "right-wing extremist" and "Nazi."

What has he done to deserve this approbrium? He is campaigning for a seat on the Sierra Club's board of directors on the platform of immigration restrictions. He believes that the population growth threatens the environment. That's actually been an environmentalist axiom for some time. But, apparently, it's only over-population by people of pallor that offends the left.

The left doesn't really engage dissent. It tries to intimidate it.
