Psychologists seem to have pinpointed the mental disturbances infecting the all-American racist who make up the hate groups and that drive the lone-wolf murderers and hate-mongers in the country; which is anger and desperation. These symptoms apparently come from years of political neglect of rural and suburban communities on top of corporate greed that exploit their labor, pollute their environment, and drain their finances.
To avoid responsibility of their neglect, wealthy families on the outskirts of these communities run campaigns of fear and point to brown people as the cause of the suffering of low-income whites. They use local media to profile poor black people, immigrants and liberals as the reason for their suffering while they themselves hide out behind gated communities protected by private security.
As a result, the low-income whites become blind to this charade and cannot see these hidden politicians but only see what is broadcast to them on television. Thus, the anger builds in against the profiled suspects and they lash out at people of color and urban-dwellers as the enemy. Too misinformed and uneducated to understand what is going on right before their eyes, they form these groups of vigilantes rooted in hatred and fear.
They arm themselves with weapons of war; prepare bunkers and fallout shelters against what they deem as a threat of "the other." As President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."
But given these low-income brown-shirts the benefit of the doubt, there is no doubt they know who they real enemy is, they just refuse to go up against them out of fear and blind patriotism. They cannot handle the fact that it is their own government and people who are stripping them of their freedom, rights, and opportunities for the American dream.
Their grandparents told them America is the greatest country in the world and as long as you are a white, Anglo-Saxon protestant, you will never have to worry. However, they now have to worry yet cannot understand how and why they have been played like suckers. So what do they do? They take their frustrations out on people who are as defenseless and helpless as they. Bullies you might call them; cowards to the nth degree; modern day peasants, lackeys and servants to the rich man and his wealth.
So when you see these white trash cowards on the news lash out at people of color, women, little kids and unarmed black teens, just know that they are only doing so because they lack the courage to go against their real enemy, who has broken them down to sniveling and spineless men who hide behind white sheets, neo-Nazi garb, and blackface.
