The fact is that Trump is merely a symptom of something far more frightening to me. The frequency and openness with which I hear people talking about wanting to kill all the Muslims – from preachers in their pulpits, to politicians on the stand, to ordinary people in public places – speaks to an increasing normalization of this attitude, a sense that wanting to round up, tag, and murder people by the million is not beyond the pale.
News stories like this one [https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/11/27/man-who-led-armed-protest-at-texas-mosque-publishes-list-of-muslims-home-addresses/], and the steady stream of small-scale anti-Muslim violence, tell me of a persistent danger from what we call "lone wolves;" speeches like Trump's speak of a danger of organized mass action.
In a time like this, Muslims are far from the only ones at risk, in the same way that nobody is safe when their neighbor's house is on fire: the people behind the mass shooting at Planned Parenthood only a week ago have close ties to the people who prowl around mosques with guns or threaten their lives at city council meetings, to the people who enable and advocate for the killing of our black friends and neighbors.
Not to put too fine a point on it, there are increasingly many people who believe that everything could be made all right if we could just teach "those people" their place – and the definition of "those people" has a way of spreading over time.
If we enter a time when our cousins and our fellow countrymen are in profound danger – to whatever extent we don't already live in such a time – it will be a time when we all have to stand up and be counted. To allow these things to happen, to not fight to protect one another, is to be complicit in it.
Please any insight would be appreciated.
