  •  A Lot Of Them Specifically Preparing For Race War (5+ / 0-)

    I'm not sure how to fit that into the view of reality, but these themes are part of conservative media  back to "Birth Of A Nation," and before that to Harpers Ferry and the hysteria over slave rebellions.  To them, the most traumatic experience in their lives was seeing the Rodney King riots on tv. It's good that almost none of them probably know of the race riots of 1919 where white torched the black sections of many cities. But the race war theme is still a staple of survivalist doomer porn like "The Turner Diaries," and when "the end" comes they often talk about barricading people into the cities like vast Warsaw ghettos. This has been in their DNA for over a century.
