    Scapegoat Theory: Scapegoat theory is a social psychological term that relates to prejudice. According to this theory, people may be prejudice toward a group in order to vent their anger.

    One example is the holocaust. According to scapegoat theory, the Germans used the Jews, liberals, homosexuals and gypsies as scapegoats for all of their countries problems (which included economic problems across the country).

    Today as we watch, liberals, homosexuals, public employees, unions and undocumented workers are the scapegoats for the far right. Ordinary Americans are pitted against ordinary Americans in a battle for a small peice of the economic pie, as the neo-GOP continues to use hate and fear to divide our nation and further enrich themselves and the very wealthy.

    And let the personal attacks begin. None are so blind as those who will not see, for plutocracy in America is a vivid reality to those who choose to look.

    A nazi reference right off the bat? That doesnt break Godwins law, it basically takes a crap on it.

    One can turn it around that the wealthy, evangelical christians, and buisness owners are scapegoats of the left.

    You then finish it off with the standard "those who dont agree with me are obviously too ignorant to SEE WHATS REALLY GOING ON, MAN!" meme.

    Scapegoats? Nope. I'd say more like 95% of the real causes for problems in America. I could give a shit about the queers. They are their own unique set of self-created problems but unions, public employees and illegal aliens (won't use your politically correct term "undocumented" aliens because they are criminals) are a big part of the economic problems in America today. Your comparison is pretty stupid too. Nobody in America is remotely akin to the Nazis. It's an insult to even suggest it.

    how can you not see that the holocaust is the same as wanting *undocumented workers* to obey the law, herr reichsmarschall?

    how about other political figures like bin laden and kim jong il

    they are like the two biggest boogeymen for the west right now, one has probably been dead for at least a decade, and the other is like a million years old!

    Most public employees, unions and undocumented workers are liberals. Of course the right don't like you. It's not rocket science.
