They sowed the fear and they did it successfully, and now America is tearing itself a part, destabilizing the western world with a demagogue who promises to play right into their hands. Their propaganda is all about how we want to kill all Muslims and rule the world, how the west rejects Islam and they must get us before we get them. For a person like Donald Trump, it’s hardly even a stretch to build that logic bridge.
And with things like Brexit, that kind of sentiment clearly isn’t restricted to America. Even if it was wise to leave and we wanted to... where would we even go that the same tendencies toward xenophobia and nationalism aren’t happening throughout the western world? Where instigation from a Trump presidency wouldn’t rebound on other countries? Fear of Isis and Islam and immigration has taken seed and grown like a weed, beyond all logic. And now it seems like it will only get worse.
