Re: We're all doomed

" ... inspite of Trump ... "

That is the key phrase. And at least he hasn't broken it. Yet.

" ... those migrant caravans ... "

Caravans. Now that's a tricky word.

Yes there are a number of people in them. But the vast majority are not actually trying to "come" ( and the majority of them are trying to come legally ). But are being aided by a large number of people trying to help them with food, water and safety. A number that ebbs and flows. And simply disappears when it gets here. And the horde ( thousands ) becomes a mere few hundred.

So words caravan and horde are mostly used to keep the Cult of Trump, the frightened and the racist pumped up. So that the xenophobia can be kept high. And the distractions can hide, cover the rest of the shit that's going on.
