A concerted, coordinated campaign of race-tainted, violence-insinuating agitprop was launched concurrent with the passage of Obamacare.
But no matter. A lie is as good as the truth for the ends of the collective. So, without a scintilla of evidence to support their claims, various "public servants" accused people of using racial epithets, spitting on them, and threatening violence. I emphasize: there is nothing to prove any of those claims. Unless, of course, you think that "spitting on a black man" happens every time a black man sits in the front row of a stage play. (See "stage spit", which I think is race neutral).
In other cases, people did...in their sense of betrayal, fear and loathing...leave messages on the answering machines of their "representatives" that were profane, vile, mean, and just wrong. Stupid. But that is hardly stop-the-presses news. It happens every day; mostly from the LEFT.
But you would never know that if you followed the world only via the MSM. Again, in a concerted, coordinated campaign, the trope was that this was new, frightening, and uniquely a product of an unhinged Right wing. If you doubt that, review this round-up. Scroll through.
This is far beyond coincidence. No, I am not suggesting a "conspiracy". It never requires that; only the very willing and ready tendency of people in the collective to pick up on the cry of the pack. That is all it takes. Fire ants don't "conspire" to attack you when provoked. They all know the signal, and they follow it.
But that is NOT to say that there is no design behind this; there most certainly IS. It is the design of Alinsky and the Frankfurt School. It is the same or very similar set of tactics we see constantly, around the world whenever the collective takes to the street...or steps before microphones behind young children with plausible anecdotes designed to supplant reason with emotion.
