More History

Regarding my post History from Wednesday, I came across this article on Twitter this morning:

Poll shows majority of Americans see an ‘invasion’ at the southern border : NPR:

Studies have consistently shown that immigrants are less likely to commit crimes or be incarcerated than native-born Americans. In the NPR/Ipsos poll, a plurality of Republicans answered incorrectly that immigrants are more likely to commit crimes.

Republicans were also more likely to endorse rhetoric that echoes the so-called “replacement theory” — the false conspiracy theory that Jews or elites are deliberately replacing white Americans with immigrants and people of color.

It’s an age old trick that politicians use. Plenty of examples in history for this, including a famous one from the country where I was born, interestingly also involving Jews. You may remember?
