Quote of the Day (Jonathan Zimmerman, on Quests for Purity, of the Left and Right)

“The mostly left-wing quest for cultural purity bears an eerie echo to the right-wing fantasy of national purity, which peaked during the so-called 100-percent-American campaigns in the early 20th century.”— University of Pennsylvania historian Jonathan Zimmerman, “On ‘Maybellene’ and General Tso’s Chicken,” The Chronicle of Higher Education, Apr. 7, 2017
