Round up them Muslims!

Ok so I'd like to start by apologizing to the three of you who read this blog. I had to take a little time off to attend to some scholarly matters, and I'm sorry if you've been checking this page feverishly several times a day to see what quirky insight I would have into current affairs, only to be disappointed over and over again.

But this one's good, if you haven't heard it already. A couple of days ago, as a joke/social experiment talk show host Jerry Klein started his show by suggesting that all Muslims be forced to wear "idenifying markers". He said: "I"m thinking either it should be an arm band, a crescent moon arm band, or it should be a crescent moon tattoo." (4:00).

Here are a couple of the responses he got:

"Not only do you tattoo them in the middle of their foreheads; you round them up and then ship them out of this country, period." (15:58)

"I don't think you go far enough... you have to set up encampments like they did during World War II like with the Japanese and Germans." (23.50)

It's actually worth scrolling to the bottom of this page to listen to the whole thing, especially the end when he blasts them for buying into it.
