We Are In Danger

The hatred-mongers of ISIS have certainly advanced their strategy of destabilizing the United States. That becomes clear when we see our fellow citizens berate all Muslims as “terrorists,” as happened recently at a hearing on construction of an Islamic Center in Virginia. But the bigots have been given permission to vent their hatred by people such as the leading candidate for the Republic presidential nomination. Is there any real difference between (1) his suggestion that mosques be closed down and that torture be used against America’s “enemies” and (2) the anti-Semitism and violence of the nascent Nazi party? If we are not afraid of the possibility that this Republican candidate will bring the reincarnation of Nazism into this country via the next election, we should be.
