I know what you’re thinking. You’re seeing recent remarks from Republican presidential front-runners, and thinking that they sound an awful lot like Nazis. I must point out, in the interest of accuracy, that this is not true.
According to Washington Post reporter Philip Rucker, who was also present, Carson said of Syrian refugees:If there’s a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you’re probably not going to assume something good.
See? If Carson were being fascist, he would have compared the Syrian refugees to disease-ridden rats. Rats, not rabid dogs. We all like dogs, so he was actually saying something nice about them. Except for the rabid part. Maybe he’s suggesting we should get the refugees shots and health care?
Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy,he added.We’re going to have to do things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.
Trump would not rule out warrantless searches in his plans for increased surveillance of the nation’s Muslims, Yahoo reported Thursday.
He also remained open toward registering U.S. Muslims in a database or giving them special identification identifying their faith, the news outlet added.
Warrantless searches just means that we’ll follow the Harris plan for screenings (and we all know that Sam Harris is such a liberal fellow…), we’ll just be expanding them from the airport to everywhere, any time.
And the “special identification” will be tasteful, as all things Trump are. Perhaps some armbands with an elegant crescent symbol on them? Maybe they’d even be included in Ivanka Trump’s Lifestyle Collection. They’re gonna be BEEEYOOOTIFUL and YUGE (aiding in identification). Nothing like what the Nazis did.
And they’d even be fashionable. As everyone knows, Nazis never knew anything about style.
Rest easy, Americans! It’s simply True Patriots caring deeply and sincerely about the Fatherland!
