Everything old is new again
Not only would [Trump] prevent these 10,000 people, largely old people and women with children, from entering the country, but he would also require Muslims to register in a national database. “They have to be,” he said, adding for eloquent emphasis: “They have to be.”
He hasn’t got the foggiest idea how this would happen, except that it would be in “different places.” Like railroad yards at night in the rain, with guard dogs keeping them under control? Then what? Would they all wear little yellow crescent moons on their jackets so everyone would know they were a) Muslim and b) registered?
Holocaust analogies are cheap and usually not worth making. But the similarities to the registration of Jews in Nazi Germany are inescapable.
Asked by reporters if that comparison was justified, Mr. Trump said: “You tell me.” He said it repeatedly, until he stopped answering the question.

Well if we’re going full-on holocaust, let’s do it.
Time to get your Hitler on dear readers:
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
“What luck for rulers that men do not think.
“It is not truth that matters, but victory.”
“By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.”
“Words build bridges into unexplored regions.”
“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth. ”
“The receptivity of the masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”
