Reblog: It’s not just Trump: Islamophobia in America is spiraling out of control
My friend Todd shared this post on Facebook, noting that it’s now like 1933 Germany, and we have to decide whether to go along with those who claim the “foreigners” are threats, or stick up for them and “potentially be the first ones in the camps”:
It’s not just Trump: Islamophobia in America is spiraling out of control
This post does not blame just Republicans or just FOX News. It also includes the left, along with TV news media in general (including CNN) and movies.
And as I research WWII for my massive rewrite of Unwilling Time-Traveler, I see the comparisons as well. Normally I just dismiss comparisons to Nazi Germany, which have become ubiquitous in today’s politics (so much so that you could make a drinking or bingo game based on them), but this one is legit. And there’s Trump, the narcissist sociopath making speeches stirring up crowds who think he’s God-sent, talking about Muslim registries.
We can stop this before it gets any worse.
