I said two days ago that ISIS may be the Nazi threat of my lifetime. I’ve just been proven wrong. If we elect Trump, WE ARE.

NEWTON, Iowa — Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for president, told NBC News on Thursday night that he “would certainly implement” a database system tracking Muslims in the United States.
“I would certainly implement that. Absolutely,” Trump said in Newton, Iowa, in between campaign town hall ev
His remarks came after terror attacks in Paris by ISIS set the international community on edge, making national security a leading topic among 2016 hopefuls. Numerous Republican candidates, including Trump, referred to the attacks as “radical Islamic terrorism” and have come down against President Obama’s decision to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees to the U.S. within the next year.
“There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases,” added Trump. “We should have a lot of things”
Donald Trump endorses tracking Muslims in US
When asked whether Muslims are legally obligated to sign into the database, Trump responded, “They have to be — they have to be.” The real estate mogul said Muslims would be signed up at “different places,” adding “It’s all about management. Our country has no management.”
Later, Trump was repeatedly asked to explain the difference between requiring Muslims to enter their information into a database and making Jewish people register in Nazi Germany. He responded four times by saying, “You tell me.”
He also ignored a question on whether there would be consequences for Muslims who do not register.
Responding to Trump’s Thursday evening remarks, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations seemed stunned.
“We’re kind of at a loss for words,” said Ibrahim Hooper, sounding incredulous. “Where do you go from here? If he’s willing to put people in a database and force them to carry special identification based on their religious status – where else do you go from there? What’s the next step there? Internment camps?”
On Trump’s refusal to explain why a Muslim database would be different than the requirement for Jews to register in Nazi Germany, Hooper asked, “What else can you compare this to except to prewar Nazi Germany?” adding, “There’s no other comparison, and [Trump] seems to think that’s ok.”
Hitler wanted to take over the world. It was Eichmann who oversaw the extermination of the Jews. Go ahead. Sit this election out because you have issues with Hillary. Elect the 21st century version of Eichmann.
