Donald Trump has said he intends to create a registry of Muslims living in the United States, and a registry of Muslims entering the United States.
Here’s a simple but incredibly effective way to fight back.
If Trump implements a Muslim registry, all Americans should pledge to register as Muslims in solidarity. The idea comes from Trevor Noah on the Daily Show. But while he was making a point using humor, Keystone Progress decided to actually create a pledge.
I just signed this one. It reminds me of the story about the Danes during World War II. According to what may, alas, be mere legend, many people in Denmark, not only Jews, wore the yellow star.
These included the king himself, who wrote in his diary:
“When I look at the inhumane treatment of Jews, not only in Germany but in occupied countries as well, I worry that such a demand [to have the Jews of Denmark wear the yellow star] might also be made on us. We must clearly refuse this, given their protection under the Danish constitution. I have stated that I cannot fulfil such a demand addressed to Danish citizens. If such a demand is made, we would best meet it by all wearing the Star of David.”
So, let’s confuse these bastards and bollix up their plans. If the registry comes to this country, let’s make the legend real by all registering as Muslim.
