Mr. Trump calls for exclusion of all Muslims from US; calls for mass Internet censorship

Mr. Trump calls for exclusion of all Muslims from US; he's also called for mass Internet censorship, a "shutdown" of the Internet based on content.

Mr. Trump's New Hampshire campaign manager defended his exclusion proposal by comparing it to the mass internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

Let me write that again in all caps:

HIS NEW HAMPSHIRE CAMPAIGN MANAGER DEFENDED THIS POLICY BY COMPARING IT TO THE MASS INTERMENTS OF JAPANESE-AMERICANS DURING WORLD WAR TWO.

I saw on Twitter last night a comment to the effect of, "The Democratic Party is now pretty much a big tent of everyone not actively trying to start a race war." Given that we are now back into "concentration camps were a GOOD IDEA" territory, I'm no longer convinced that's far off the mark.
