    people who think (I use the word advisedly) this way know that they are wrong. I mean they know it in some deep down, beyond the anger, beyond the sense of inferiority, way.

    I think if Matthews had kept talking for a few minutes more she would have burst into tears. He may have noticed the split second when she almost puckered up and decided to leave it, lest he appear to be bullying this poor ignorant woman.

    Bluster? Mm. Yes, but bluster sometimes serves as a mask that hides the fear underneath.

    She, and others like her, feel they are missing out on something, something good that has passed them by, so much so that they must blame someone, they must hate someone, and it doesn't matter much who.

    As for the why, "He's a communist will serve as well as anything else." She doesn't really know the why of it.

    Suppose she had said she hated the President for being black. She wouldn't know why she hates black people either. Communist, socialist, black man--it's all the same to her.

    Facts matter. Joe Biden
