That explains a lot. It explains why the Republican Party, arguably in a long downward moral spiral, lost its mind when America elected its first Black president in Barack Obama. It explains why so many people with the luxuries of a laptop and free time (things that actual poor folks have in short supply) look for conspiracies like QAnon to explain a society that no longer makes sense for them, or why so much of the hatred on the right is expended not at the CEOs who outsourced American jobs but at the cap-and-gown-wearing eggheads like journalists or scientists they find intellectually arrogant.

1. Regardless, lower class trash than tRump had been hoping for. White supremacists fear


tRump is reported to have been disappointed in the rioters because they looked "low class".

White supremacists fear democracy because it is the biggest threat to their privileges. Even the trash among them have more privileges than a black ivy league engineer on a city street.
