THE POLITICS OF PREJUDICE. PT 4.

Aggression, Attack, Oppression, Bully


Perhaps the Most Insidious form of Prejudice, as it Pertains to World of
Politics, is HIDING THE DESIRE TO DESTROY THE IDEOLOGY OF EQUALITY
AND OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL, BEHIND THE MASK OF BEING "PATRIOTIC",
AND "FOR THE LOVE OF COUNTRY."

It is the STRATEGY OF CONTROLLING GOVERNMENT THROUGH CREATING 
NON-EXISTENT ENEMIES OUT OF SPECIFIC GROUPS WHO "THREATEN OUR WAY OF LIFE."  

However, These are not ENEMIES FROM THE OUTSIDE, FOREIGN POWERS WHO DESIRE OUR DESTRUCTION.  NO, IT'S THE ENEMY WITHIN.

In Reality, the only thing that is really THREATENED IS THE HOLD ON POWER 
THAT CERTAIN GROUPS WANT TO MAINTAIN, AND HAVE NO DESIRE TO SHARE WITH OTHERS.

Throughout World History,  Many Government and Regimes have used SCAPEGOATS TO BLAME FOR EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL PROBLEMS OF THEIR OWN MAKING, OR TO FIND SOMETHING TO FAULT FOR AN INABILITY TO GOVERN SUCCESSFULLY, DUE TO THE FAILURE OF POLICIES THAT THEY HAVE IMPLEMENTED.

IN THE UNITED STATES, THE HISTORY OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC HAS SEVERAL EXAMPLES OF SUCH;

-  IN THE 19TH CENTURY NATIVIST POLITICAL GROUPS FOUGHT ANY ATTEMPT TO ALLOW RECENT IMMIGRANTS A CHANCE TO ASSIMILATE, AND GAIN A MEASURE OF POLITICAL EQUALITY.

-  UNIONIZATION IN EARLY 20TH CENTURY BROUGHT CRACKDOWNS ON AMERICANS WHOSE ANCESTRY CAME FROM PARTICULAR PARTS OF EUROPE, NOTED FOR THEIR ANARCHISTIC AND NIHILISTIC GROUPS.

-  THE "RED SCARE" OF THE LATE 1940s and 50s, an Assault on any Intellectual Movement that didn't accept and obey A RIGID AND STRICT DEFINITION OF THE "AMERICAN WAY."
