Of course they did. Division is a priority with this administration and racial division is a HIGH PRIORITY!

If it can be divided

Division it will be.

In today's political power grab it is comparable to publicity. There is no such thing as a bad division.

This was common knowledge in the 1930's to the Nazi's in Germany.

Stalin's Rise to Power.


Summarized as follows:

(a) control and use of party bureaucracy to accumulate power;

(b) the ability to divide his opponents and/or rivals, and play them off against each other;

(c) skillful use of the cult of party unity, sacred to Bolsheviks.

(d) an unshakeable determination to wield absolute power and absolute ruthlessness in using it;

(e) the ability to wait patiently for the right moment to act; and

(f) the ability to retreat when necessary, in order to advance later.

While accumulating power, Stalin maintained a "centrist" position, throwing his support to those he needed, and then "dialectically" switching policies. That is, he would support a policy in order to defeat one set of leaders, and then adopt the policy of those he defeated to crush those whom he had supported. (Russia under Lenin and Stalin 1921-1939)
