in response to reader comment: A grand idea

Yes, the parallel is so strong you could easily hang yourself with it. Just a few minor details, though.

The NewGestapo won't have to create special marking (mimicking some good old dhimmitude traditions) for recognizing today's targets – they already proudly affirm their difference. And they effectively belong to a community which openly seeks the domination of the world, in the name of their god – so the NewGestapo won't have to make that up for them. And they effectively are linked with very violent movements who are indeed trying to destroy our civilization, so the NewGestapo won't have to lie about that either. And – but is that worth noticing? – the NewGestapo is not calling them names, is not humiliating them, is not claiming that they are an inferior race which should be wiped off the surface of the world. But otherwise, yes, sure enough to hang yourself.
