Trump is the personification of the problem, he is the trickle of water on the face of the dam and, as Orvie in A Stone’s Throw said: “You can’t stop a leak on the downstream side. That’s where you see the water coming through, but no matter how much stuff you push into that hole and how hard you push it in the water is gonna get through. Ya gotta find the upstream side of the hole, but it’s not just on the other side of where the water’s comin’ through.”
The problem is not Fox “news” and other right wing commentators either because the United States is not alone in accepting nationalistic hate mongering leaders. I don’t know where the leak in the dam is but unless we find it, we won’t be able to fix the problem without reliving the 1930s.
