When other human beings are asking for your help because of violence your own government fomented over decades of nation building in the Middle East, and you reach for fear instead of compassion; that might be your inner conscience projecting guilt because on some level you realize your privilege.
Then again, you could just be ignorant and afraid of Mexican, Muslim, atheist terrorists who are trying to take your guns so they can turn your children into transsexuals who violate strangers in public restrooms.
