How convenient for Goldman Sachs. Just as most working people were demanding that the Goldman bosses and other Wall Street criminals either be massively fined, jailed or worse, the nation's attention is suddenly forced to react to the racist immigration law in Arizona. And although the two incidents are not directly related, they represent a trend that is likely to increase in the months and years ahead.
Because of the economic crisis, massive unemployment, corporate bailouts, home foreclosures,and criminal activity of Wall Street, the majority of people in the U.S. have never been as passionately anti-corporation. But the corporate owned media plus the wealthy, elite-controlled Congress reacted quickly to these intolerable circumstances and fought back.
They took the fight over public opinion to the airwaves, and massively pushed the blame for the dismal state of the U.S. economy onto those unable to defend themselves -- immigrants.
One can either focus their political rage on the billionaires who dominate the economy and Congress --Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, etc. -- or those millions of undocumented immigrants, many who get paid lower than minimum wage and are living in society's shadows.
