    an analysis on the rise of right wing populism in the western world.

    things go wrong and we are trying to find scapegoats. we blame the gypsies (in europe) muslims (syrian refugees today), blacks, latinos, immigrants, gays, whatever.

    those that do however don't understand that it wasn't immigrants who slashed funding for education and health, it wasn't blacks and latinos or immigrants who cause economic crises. it is easier though to blame someone near you than to find the actual problem, that faceless rich people are screwing you over

    mmmyeah, i think you are referring to the people who fled death and despair with nothing but the clothes on their backs and what cash the could gather as an invasion force.

    so after that, there is really not much else to say to you, is there?

    It's nice that you are so comfortable that you consider Invasion an impossibility. Our nation's west and east coasts are oceans, and our northern border is Canada, a friendly and not densely populated nation.

    Our southern border has been challenged, and an invasion has been ongoing for decades, but you apparently prefer to ignore it.

    Suzianne lives in Arizona; Normbenign lives in Michigan. But the extremely arrogant Normbenign
    likes to act as though he must know much more about the southern USA being 'invaded'.

    If you want to help the people being killed, send in your military to kill the people killing them.

    You don't let them invade your country.

    Eladar goes on record saying that he thinks Jews should have been barred from entering the US during WW2.

    The UK did restrict immigration of Jews to the UK just before and during WW2.
