It is unlikely that our president would make that many mistakes that consistently by accident. No, I have to believe he acts intentionally, on the basis of premises and goals most Americans do not share. He believes America was founded as a racist and greedy nation that must be radically reconstituted. If the new America cannot be achieved by propaganda and lies, then it will have to rise from the ashes of conflict and conflagration. Whatever it takes is just, right and true enough.
