I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.

Persecution Under the Radar

Picture the Islamic Republic of Iran. What comes to mind? For the
average American it may be nuclear proliferation, the bombastic President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, maybe Persian rugs, but not much else. Certainly seven
regular, middle-class people who have been imprisoned for quietly practicing
the Baha'i religion haven't made it onto our radars.
