Mr Trump’s Idea is Ugly

Mr Donald J Trump proposes that all Muslims should be barred from entering the United States of America until the US authorities can figure out Muslim attitudes to the USA. If his idea became law then it would probably mean a permanent ban on Muslims entering the USA; I do not know what the “the” Mr Trump means by “Muslim attitudes to the USA” and I doubt if he knows what he means. It is a classic use of language to obfuscate meaning and latch onto to prejudice and engender mass hysteria.
Mr Trump’s idea is simply the first step on a path trodden by the late unlamented Adolf and many others. His idea is fittingly ugly.
