1. That's EXACTLY why they're pushing a race war ...
They are SCARED SHITLESS of a class war, because
there are MORE OF US THAN THEM! Wall Street,
big corporate America, the entire right wing has
been TERRIFIED of this ever since Obama was able
to raise so much money from little donations and
involve so many people in his campaign. And
with the economy in the fucking toilet, they
have to distract us with ANOTHER WAR in order
to avoid having us turn on them en masse.

2. Well put! Sure is a great distraction from the CEOs telling us we can't have HealthCare for All
:thumbsdown: CEOs and Congress members who get theirs covered by the job.

16. You know this is about fear
to get back to power.

Law of unintended consequences in full effect.

It is also about division, but it is fear... and control and caste, and all that crap.

I wish it was just as simple as keep them divided...

By the way, I wish I did not live the Chinese Curse.

21. Better to have a race war
than a class war. We can't have poor whites realizing they have just as much in common with poor minorities. Look at our Civil War where you had a bunch of poor white farmers take up arms against the Union so that a few rich Southern landowners could keep their slaves and their wealth. Sure it didn't benefit the poor white farmers at all, but hey, better to side with your wealthy overlords than with some brown people :sarcasm:

22. Some day the repressed in this country will rise up, and it ain't going to be pretty
Sooner or later, those at the bottom of the American socio-economic ladder are going to rise up, and it will make what happened during the French and Russian revolutions look tame by comparison. There will be full-fledged riots in cities throughout the nation, the rich elites holed up in their mansions cowering in fear as they clutch their filthy lucre.
