    we see what he's doing.  Take it out of the context of US politics in Arkansas and look at it more broadly.  This is the sort of tribal group identity based politics that is very effective at mobilizing people, evil right to its core.

    I wonder if this worthless POS has ever heard of Radio Télévision Libre des Mille Collines?  That was the Hutu radio station that started by calling Tutsis "cockroaches" and ended by giving directions to gangs of machete wielding gangs.

    And it's doomed to fail here.  It is, however, the reason why those eastern KY counties in which >50% of the GDP is from Medicaid and Social Security vote for Mitch McConnell.

      What at least some of these people who stockpile semi-automatic weapons with dark mutterings about "social collapse" really hope for are what our history books call "race riots". That is, they fantasize situations where they'll have an excuse to go rampaging through brown-skinned neighborhoods. Think how many more Tutsis would have been slaughtered had the enraged forces of Hutu Power had semi-automatic weapons instead of machetes.
