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.
