    It is easy to create mindless fear to create a mindless mob mentality. The image that usually comes to my mind is the madness of the French Revolution in mob action.

    And remember - this has all happened before. They covered this in middle school when I was a kid:

    That link was really interesting. I had heard of the Know Nothings but had not realized the depth of their political reach. Sure does seem like a repeat of the same story. Throw in the isolationist policies of the 1920's that I have read about and history is repeating itself.

    I found out from a Facebook post that a local agency has some of the children. They asked for new underwear and small portable toys. I dropped some off at lunchtime at the church agency that is collecting items. I hate that this is happening, but these children are here now and need basic stuff, so I'm doing what I can.
