This "Fear the Caravan" is just right wing manufactured hype/spin but we have all seen this ....

.... movie before and in 2014 it was called EBOLA. We were bombarded with ebola stories
24/7 and we all learned that we needed to be afraid of this external threat to America but
on election day and afterwards we almost never heard about ebola again. The "fear the caravan"
hype is just ebola 2.0.

In 2014 I had a right winger in my neighborhood and he used to have a sign up that said
stop ebola seal the borders. The day after the election in 2014 the sign was gone.

Now how do we stop this bullshit and the selling of fear? One word. VOTE!

1. I am suspicious of this "caravan"

There was a lady on MSNBC Live with Hallie Jackson this morning, Maria Teresa Kumar, to discuss the caravan. She said the typical migration period for people from Central America to the U.S. was from April to July.

Also, another thing that makes this caravan a little suspicious is the timing. How fortunate for the Don that a caravan happens to be moving toward the U.S. in the three-week period before mid-term elections.

4. What do you believe is happening?

I mean, lives are in danger. People are sick and suffering. What, other than desperation, could be behind it?

5. I don't know what to believe

On one hand, what appears to us is a caravan of Central American migrants, desperately trying to reach the U.S. in order to apply for asylum.

On the other hand, this is a caravan that is traveling outside the usual time period that migration occurs. Also, there is the timing of this caravan. It just happens to be occurring during the run-up to the mid-term elections.

I haven't seen any evidence that would lead me to believe the caravan is bogus. But, you have to keep in mind the coincidences of the timing issues.
