Not that long ago, a certain successful segment of society was the scapegoat for the ills of the people around them. It seems this may be happening again. A new location, polling of buzz words, but basically the same as before.
A messianic figure, mesmerizing the crowds. pointing a finger at the successful white people who kept them down. Take there stuff by force. Force them to work and redistribute that. No longer a productive member of society? Too old? It's time to remove them for the greater good. The only things missing (so far) are zyklon B and crematoria.
