The swapping out of imaginary Cadillacs (made and driven by black union members, which of course makes the vehicles all the more evil in conservative minds) for imaginary pickup trucks tells you about the shift that's going on within the conservative one-percenters' movement.

Demonizing black and brown people has lost much of its electoral value for the Cons because this demonizing has been rightly condemned as racist, so now they must demonize the people that they depend on for votes: the white working class folks, both rural and urban.
