2. What they are doing does not initially appear to be rational

in the sense that it does not seem to serve their self interest. But I think they value the feeling of belonging to that more than most people understand. And it's true that they have poor prospects in every other avenue of life, so it becomes even more important to them to belong to this and have enemies to blame for their failures. So, in a sad way, it is rational. But IMO they'll be sorry they felt the need to do this because the consequences won't be in their favor in the long run, unless their ultimate objective is to destroy this country and themselves right along with it.
