The OP is missing a much bigger picture. Since the fall of the Russian Monarchy, concerted efforts to duplicate destabilization, cultural revolution,
and communism in the West have continued. Put more simply, People don't fear foreigners, or invaders, or a bad economy. They fear their government
because the symptoms of socialism are manifesting, even if the actual nomenclature is lost on the conscious minds of the millions. They do not have to
know it is communism, collectivism, and the initial symptoms of genocide that they are suffering from. They do not have to know that there is an
effort to reduce their country to an easily manipulated 3rd world sweat shop of 310 million strong ruled by an armed minority.
They merely need to recognize that they grew up in big houses and now live in tiny apartments. They had life long jobs with retirement plans and now
they are unemployed and in debt. They once drove across thousands of miles for road trips and to visit relatives, and now they cannot trust their
relatives or afford to pay for the gas to see them. They once considered flying a luxury but now consider it a personal hell. They once looked to a
bright future of educated grand children but now reflect on the fact that their descendents will have it worse off than them. They are looking for
someone to blame but fear the blame falls upon themselves.
They are not fearing anything but this. It is not fear consuming Americans. It is despair.
