I'm even quite sure that's their motivation. Or at the very least their excuse. "We're keeping them safe!"

Ignoring that people should first and foremost have the right to choose whether they WANT to be kept safe. That's the fallacy of self proclaimed "protectors": They don't ask those they "protect" whether they'd want to be protected in the first place. "Protecting" someone against their consent is basically illegal restraint.

Discrimination? Who speaks of discrimination? We're just asking a few harmless questions. And of course you may opt to not answer, that's completely within your rights. And of course not answering, or providing an answer we don't like, will have no influence on your chance to be employed whatsoever...

Hate to pull the Godwin here, but it fits.

People during WW2 who dared to help those that were prosecuted for no other crime than being who they are were living in constant danger. Not just of being arrested or inconvenienced, but of being killed. Along with their family. Still, people did just that. By far not many, but surprisingly many. They sure as hell could not hope for fame and glory (especially during the first years when it sure looked like Germany would win that war), actually all they could expect is that sooner or later they'll be betrayed and end their life in a concentration camp.

Sometimes some things are more important than your convenience.

Dude, you have to learn how to read slogans. "Yes we can" means "We CAN, but we DON'T". And Hope and change means that you may hope for change. If you so please. It's a free country after all.

Seriously. Did anyone really expect anything just 'cause the guy is from the other end of The Party?
