Want to guess the source for The Trumpster's idea of a Muslim Roundup? Look no further than the Nuremberg Laws promulgated by the followers of Adolf Hitler in 1935. After the German invasion of Poland in 1939, the German government dictated that all Jews in Germany were to wear a yellow badge in the form of a Star of David on the left side of the breast and on the back. If a Jew was found without wearing the star in public, they could be subjected to severe punishment. The only thing lacking in The Trumpster's plan is Brown Shirts for his fanatical followers. If this is (fair & balanced) historic recurrence, so be it.

And then we’ll see who’s next. Ω
