Yes, but the MAGA hats fall for the “other” bate every time. For almost 30 years the GOP and Trump types have been using immigration and the “other” as a diversionary blame game for the fact that its their Wall Street fat cat benefactors that are robbing the red hats blind, not Mexicans. Putin and Trump laugh themselves silly at watching gullible Trump supporters shoot themselves in the foot year after year.

The only way I see you fitting in to any of this is as a Putin shit stirrer. I can see where, having nothing to lose, this can be a lot of fun. Vandalism does have its charms.
