Fear This: An Inquisition In America

Once upon a time, during the Spanish Inquisition, you could be brutally murdered if you weren't a Catholic.

Fast forward.

The foundations of an American Inquisition are being laid...word by word. 

Fear and bigotry have opened the door to the destruction of Democracy.

A terrorist attack in France has spurred passed over Trump VP choice, Newt Gingrich, to suggest giving a test to every person of Muslim backround in America in order to determine whether he or she believes in Shariah, a legal code based on the Quran and other Islamic scriptures.

If anyone says yes, they are automatically deported. It doesn't matter if they're an American citizen or not. 

Our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, but that doesn't seem to bother Gingrich ((or people who believe like he does).

Have you ever noticed that it's always Republicans calling for extreme measures against segments of our own society? Conservatives like to say they believe in the Constitution, but are the quickest to violate it for political and ideological reasons.

Maybe Gingrich was hoping to make an impression on Trump by showing him they are like-minded. Even though Newt didn't get the VP nod (Trump went with Mike Pence), he still hopes to play a role in our government.

Fear that.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
