This staged video is supposed to be an attack against Donald Trump, comparing his proposed policy to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country to what the Nazis did to the Jews. What it reveals is the depth of anxiety that Americans of all races and religions have about Muslims.
The creator of this video says “I made these muslim badges to eerily remind people of what Hitler did during the Holocaust, and to show what Donald Trump’s proposal would entail.”
But no student of history would make such a false analogy because of one important detail – the Nazis were rounding up and exterminating innocent Jews who had not attacked Germany or the German people and posed no threat – Muslims have attacked Americans several times and continue to do so.
