Eeeek! Donald Trump wants databases! Oh, the horror!
NEWSFLASH!!! Every person legally residing in the United States is already in a database as Diamond & Silk have entertainingly pointed out. Even a liberal writer at Slate has admitted that Trump did not specifically single out Muslims alone to be placed on a database. As for the absurd claim that Trump wanted identity badges for Muslims, that wild charge has pretty much fizzled out by now despite attempts by the mainstream media to pretend it was a fact.
Here are Diamond & Silk pointing out the very obvious about the ubiquity of databases:
Josh Voorhees of Slate spent Friday afternoon analyzing the video in which Trump supposedly called for specifically Muslims to be placed on a date base "as though it was the Zapruder film" and reached this conclusion:
I’m not sure whether or not Trump wants a mandatory Muslim registry, and I certainly wouldn’t put it past him. But I don’t think that’s what he was advocating for in this widely circulated clip.
If you want an example of someone who glories in a database for strictly poitical reasons then look no further than Congresswoman Maxine Waters:
The President has put in place an organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That's going to be very, very powerful. ...That database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it's never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They're going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can't get around it.
