Whats going on here? Or in the words of Vince Lombardi, What the hell is going on here? I drive past the town post office today and a guy's out there at a table taking signatures for our president's impeachment! But I believe I know what's going on, and its been going on for a very long time (since the days of the founding fathers, and the demonization of the folks that were here before us): the representatives of the wealthy, corporations, Fox News and such, have convinced the very ones they're exploiting that their fears are gaining on them and will soon overtake them and what little they're allowed to have could be lost--divide and conquer (the working class). Passed up by a minority? Ahhh, never! Hang on brother, trust in me, we will make sure the white man regains his rightful place of power. Simplified, yes, but still true. The propagandists are not very sophisticated, but they need not be. Because the outing of the next boogie-man (commie, hippie, terrorist, minority) is always embraced with the arms of fear by the small-minded masses.
