The United States has a political party that is undergoing and promulgating the most heinous of social regression in US History.
Over the centuries, we have evolved away from our more shameful historic events and historic washy of life. Native American genocide (via manifest destiny), Women's Suffrage, Anti-Union thuggery, Japanese internment (during WWII with no Germany ancestry internment), and Jim Crow (albeit it short lived), are classic examples of how we as a nation we overcame past horrors. You might have noticed I expressly avoided past treatment of Italian Immigrants, horrors perpetrated against Irish immigrants. Moreover, I am certain you noticed no mention of the forced immigration of Africans to facilitate early American capitalism and elitism.
All in the past; all with documented and existential evolution away from the sins of our social past. Alas, we now regress. we regress out of the shadows of GOP regression that commenced in the early 1970s via political expedience under the auspices of Richard Nixon. Social regression that was honed to a fine science under Ronald Reagan under the tutelage and ownership of Lee Atwater and a finely tuned version of Richard Nixon and Kevin Phillips "Southern Strategy." No, my point isn't one that gyrates solely around race. My point is a direct address of policy and ideology born of political expedience and turned into paradigm shaping fodder via Fox News.
In 2015, the two leaders of the herd of GOP candidates for the 2016 nomination have, over the past 24 hours, illustrated US social regression. Donald Trump and Ben Carson remind of why voting against the GOP in the coming elections could be tantamount to nations saving. If you are inclined to feel comfortable Trump and Carson will wane of the primary race, know the GOP has a few equally regressive candidates on their bench. Rubio, Cruz, Huckabee, and Paul are social misfits ready and willing to follow the footsteps of the party's leading demagogues.
Trump and Carson over the past 24 hours. As you pursue the following recall, the Paris terrorists were to the person citizens of Belgium and France. Could we have a racial or ethnic components to what follows?

“We’re going to have to do thing that we never did before,” he said during a Yahoo interview.
“Some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule,” Trump said.
“Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy,” he added. “We’re going to have to do things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”
Trump would not rule out warrantless searches in his plans for increased surveillance of the nation’s Muslims, Yahoo reported Thursday.

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson on Thursday compared the process of vetting Syrian refugees wishing to enter the U.S. to a parent protecting a child from a rabid dog.
"If there's a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you're probably not going to assume something good about that dog," Carson said during a press conference in Mobile, Ala. "And you're probably going to put your children out of the way. That doesn't mean that you hate all dogs."
He said it was simply "putting your intellect into motion" to call for a strengthened screening process to weed out potential terrorists before letting more refugees into the country.
"We have to have in place screening mechanisms that allow us to determine who the mad dogs are," Carson said. "Quite frankly, who are the people who want to come in and hurt us and destroy us."
Watch Carson's comments below:
Donald Trump and Ben Carson are setting a tone across conservative America that alone could fill a vault with evidence of dangerous social regression.
Before I move on with a salient point regarding GOP regression, I will once against ask, why no forced internment of white American homegrown terrorist who are becoming more overt with their acts of horror. I have yet to hear one single comment from the right about people such as those in the following video news segment.

UPDATE: And, this man is an alleged minister!
