Two weeks ago, Donald Trump’s opponents went apoplectic over their manufactured story that he wanted a government registry of domestic Muslims. They called him a Nazi: Ohio Governor John Kasich cut an ad quoting an anti-Hitler poem, Roger Simon of Politico wrote a piece titled “All hail Der Donald,” Whoopi Goldberg said, “in Germany, people would point and say you know, it’s their fault it’s happening.” NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard asked Trump directly, “Mr. Trump, why would Muslim databases not be the same thing as requiring Jews to register in Nazi Germany?”

Trump, of course, never called for a registry of domestic Muslims. He said that the government ought to have a registry of foreign Muslims entering the United States.

But here’s the irony: today, the left is apoplectic that Republicans wouldn’t vote to use a registry heavily populated with Muslims to remove their Second Amendment rights.

Got it? Trump’s a Nazi for not suggesting a registry of American Muslims; the right are terrorists for not supporting a registry that carries a disproportionate number of American Muslims for purposes of removing their gun rights.

Because gun control.

The New York Times editorial board pointed out the terrorist attack in San Bernardino was in fact a terrorist attack. They then added, “While the nation suffered through the shock of another bloody massacre, on Thursday every Senate Republican except Mark Kirk of Illinois voted against legislation to prevent people on the FBI’s consolidated terrorist watchlist from purchasing guns or explosives.” Then, mirroring the left’s anti-prayer narrative from the day of the San Bernardino terror attack, The New York Times said, “when a mass shooting at home calls attention to laws that put guns into the hands of suspected terrorists, they ask for a moment of silence, while taking action that speaks volumes.”

The New York Daily News followed suit:

So did CNN contributor Sally Kohn, who went full CAPSLOCK:

The Democratic National Committee tweeted thusly:

Obama said on CBS News, “Those same people who we don’t allow to fly can go into a store in the United States and buy a firearm, and there’s nothing that we can do to stop them.”

Right, because of this little thing called the Constitution.

As John Lott writes over at National Review:

Now, being on the watch list sure sounds bad, but it doesn’t mean that a person has been convicted of anything. In fact, it is pretty easy to get on the watch list; you can be on it simply because the FBI wants to interview you about someone you might know. According to the TechDirt website, about 40 percent of the people on the watch list are considered to be under “reasonable suspicion” even though they have absolutely “no affiliation with known terrorist groups.”

There are 700,000 people on the terror watch list. There are over 50,000 people on the no-fly list. And as Lott points out, between February 2004 and December 2014, more than 2,000 Americans on that list bought guns, and not one crime has been connected to the purchase of such guns.

The government didn’t even have the San Bernardino shooters on the no-fly or terror watch lists. There are 72 members of the Department of Homeland Security on the terror watch list. As Democrat Paul Heroux writes at the Huffington Post, “Do we start depriving citizens of due process because we are afraid of what others might do?” The left’s much-beloved Council on American-Islamic Relations recently complained to a federal court about the federal government’s “broad and unchecked power…to secretly designate American Muslims to be added onto the terror watchlist without due process.”

So the left’s new idea: if you oppose depriving those on a disproportionately Muslim registry their Second Amednment rights without due process, you side with the terrorists.

Got it? Trump’s a Nazi for not suggesting a registry of American Muslims; the right are terrorists for not supporting a registry that carries a disproportionate number of American Muslims for purposes of removing their gun rights.

The hypocrisy is absolutely stunning. Or it would be, if you ever expected honesty of the left.
