“The Camp of the Saints”

I remember reading this in the early 70's.

Excellent book.

It's amusing though that white supremacists, Bannon and Breitbart News revere it as an anti-immigration analog or rant if you will.

Apparently they missed the counter-point.

At the end a “person of color” who has taken the “American Dream” to heart and worked hard to achieve the trappings of success, picks up a gun to defend his McMansion from the incoming hoards.

Or close to some such.

People see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear.
