History repeats itself. In the 1850s a new political party was formed called the American Party. It was a response to the hate and fear by “native” Americans of Irish and German immigrants, mostly Catholic, who were taking their jobs and supposedly pledging their allegiance to a foreign religion, plotting against America.
Sound familiar? Their common name was the “Know Nothing Party.” Doesn’t this name fit Donald Trump and his followers perfectly? They are playing to hate, fear and ignorance.
Whoever said that Mr. Trump is not a Republican is right. He’s just another Know Nothing.
