The right wing had already adopted the general Nazi tactic of targeting a minority, to make a scapegoat out of them.
The Dove World Outreach Center sounds like a peaceful place, doesn’t it? Yet, this Christian center has made itself the national headquarters of a neo-Nazi action scheduled for three weeks from now: To hold a massive book burning.
They’ve organized International Burn a Qu’ran Day. Their idea is like Hitler’s: By staging conspicuous book burning ceremonies, they can whip people up into a frenzy of fear. The anti-Muslim crusaders can then use that fear to propel a political movement that will move its leaders into positions of power.
Burning Korans won’t do anything to stop the spread of Islam. Think about it: Participants will have to purchase Korans before they can burn them, thus encouraging the printing of more Korans.
The point of this book burning movement isn’t truly to stop Islam. It’s to bring demagogues into power in the United States.
We need to stand up to this neo-Nazi movement now, before it’s too late. After all, Muslims will only be the first, most convenient target. How long will it be until they start burning the books that are important to you?
