That is America in a nutshell since 9/11.
An unspeakable tragedy happens…blame immigrants, Muslims, Latinos, each other…nothing gets done.
I can just imagine as these things unfold, someone on the right sitting with their fingers crossed hoping the perpetrator is a Muslim, or an immigrant. And, someone on the left with their fingers crossed hoping it is someone from the alt-right or 45 supporter. That way either side has a boogey man they can lay before the opposition. Then it will get ran through the multimedia mill and in the end, nothing will happen. There will be pushes for tighter/looser gun laws, tighter immigration, etc.
The right has spent the past 10 years thinking of clever ways to write Obama’s name in a negative way, and the left just chases its tail. Then someone will come in and say the whole thing is a fabrication by the liberal media to force you to have an abortion and take away all your rights. That will catch traction and wash, rinse, repeat.
With the dems back in the House, and the GOP firmly controlling the senate, it will get much worse before it gets better.
