What do you think of this article?

I found this on an Australian website from my hometown of Melbourne.

Interested to hear your thoughts?

yeah it's a combination of a shitty economy plus a black president. it's pretty simple really. taxes are lower than they were 20 years ago, so it's not really about that at all. people are tools, we all know this.

While I don't disagree with it, I think an article about irrational fears and an alarmist, xenophobic, hair-trigger population is a riot coming from a country famous for its whites-only immigration policy.

I'd pay good money to see even half the reporters wagging their fingers at the U.S. address their own domestic issues for once.

I was actually more interested in finding out if the ideas that are outlined in the article are ones held by Americans or are these still the more extreme view?
