Absolutely agree, Nicholas.

Amazingly, the powerless are lumped-in with the bombers and shooters by the Right. How else could asylum-seeking families from South America, walking thousands of miles in extreme heat, become (as Laura Ingraham of Fox News labeled them) “an invading hoard.”

The power of the powerless is they engender sympathy, which is a threat to the agenda of money and power. But the Right’s weapon to fight this is to position them (these poor, struggling refugees) as tools of the Left.

“The meek shall inherit the earth!” To which Trump says “Not on my watch!”
