I wasn't gunning primarily for the governmental level, rather the street level. And in that case, it is a rather dumb idea to go after the german-americans and their old country. And there are plenty of people who would make a fuss if someone started targeting people depending on from where they immigrated. The alt-USA already had nasty fallout from that once, thus any demagoues will probably go looking for softer targets. Or turn on themselves, as other radical movements have done. Bottom line is, when the thing does not move forward, the USA are not exempt from the same mechanism which mire other societies.
