I've never seen this level of rhetoric in my own country, and its frightening.

Reagan talked a lot about the supposed decay of urban areas in a way that otherized those particular citizens and painted them as useless eaters. “Welfare queens”. “Young bucks”. Nixon’s war on drugs, a dozen various urban crime bills, even though most suburbs and rural areas have higher per capital crime rates. Farms consisting of one family and rural infrastructure subsidized at costs to the taxpayers which could give a major leg up to an entire city block. There has been a real, systemic, institutional war on city dwellers for generations. Not just some nasty labels and words, but your government actively and aggressively neglecting the residents of the economic powerhouses of this country. Your take is worse than useless.
