Apparently, more Americans than ever seem ready to march in any parade or jump on any bandwagon that makes them larger and more visible, especially if it sounds good.
They define “good” down to what they want and what works for them. If they are successful, they win. If they fail, they blame racists who can be punished and exorcized.
The crowd waving anti-racist signs and disgorging propaganda slogans was disgusting enough, but what frightened me more was the premonition that this could grow into a violent racist-style movement against racists, chauvinists, homophobes, the rich, Islamophobes, or anyone else out-of-step with the crowd.
