3. Trump picks and chooses his scapegoats

Fascism requires them after all, as a distraction to rally the masses in order to enable a sinister agenda. However, this is no longer about Omar. It's about the sick pervasive bigotry that Trump spews day-in and day-out. And that particular outrage is not a stand-alone strategy, but rather a means to an end. Get people riled up with fear and hatred and they might overlook the fact that the current health care system is not serving them well, that critical infrastructure needs have not been addressed, that our global alliances are being damaged in order to do the bidding of a dictator who wishes us harm, or that the impacts of climate change are being ignored to the peril of future generations. To name a few. Trump at his core may be an ignorant buffoon, but he has mass manipulation and propaganda down to a science.
