Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Liberals have been made to feel entitled to moral superiority because they are nicer to minorities, aka identity politics.
(Having been copiously lied to and massaged by propaganda to hate, whether Russia or Trump, or both.)
The Trump voters have been abundantly lied to and manipulated to hate Clinton and Obama, and the 'establishment', and the media, and Hollywood and the beltway.
So basically you're left with two groups of under- and misinformed groups programmed to hate whaling on each other, pots and kettles both so black by now it's impossible to tell which is which or whether they're just two sides of the same sad clusterfuck.
Integrity in mass media is now extinct, as is public trust in the institutions.
Both sides entrenched deep in the stupid, and digging in deeper as America's id comes home to roost in the form of the Tangerine Tantrum, spreading dissension and fomenting dissent like a bull in the genteel porcelain shop of politics-as-usual.
He wants bovver. The MIC needs another Moby Dick. Who will be the next lucky recipient of hegemonic largesse?
Will vacuous precocity, russophobic fearology and virtue posturing make it to the finish line first, or will Bannon's uber-racist bloody-minded belligerence to non-whites, and capacity to get Trump to throw as much sand in institutional gears as he can before he goes down in apricot flames.
Tune in for tomorrow's nuke-wieldingly thrilling episode!

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
