56. But the truth is

..their xenophobic, racist hatred is not the only motivation. They want and need a dangerous ISIS, want an enemy for the country to be afraid of and hate. They've converted ISIS into the new Cold War, which funded trillions in unneeded military spending, cost millions of lives over time, and was used to make reasonable, non-rightwingers (liberals0 look weak, unprotective, unpatriotic, and somehow not American.

This "I will protect you from the big bad wolf" game has been going on since the 1940's when the progressive feelings in the country had to finally, post-FDR, be squelched.
