Roberto Rodriguez: Decade of Fraud, Fear, Hate and Permanent War

The Decade of Fraud, Fear, Hate and Permanent War
by Roberto Rodriguez

" ... 9-11 became a clarion call for a fanatical crusade against Arabs/Muslims and a call for a permanent worldwide war: God Bless America.
Enter hate. Brown people became the enemy … with turbans. Brown people became the enemy in Afghanistan and then at home. And it didn’t matter what kind of brown people. They became both the enemy and the convenient scapegoat."
