State Tyranny

I’m listening to the George Takei interview on Penn’s Sunday School.

Takei talks about how American Democracy whole-heatedly supported the internment of Japanese US Citizens during World War II, and the horrible racism and injustice that surrounded that dark page of history.

All I could think about were the disgusting statists in the anti-freedom movement in their claims that this not only could never happen again…but probably that it never happened in the first place.

Thanks I’ll keep my guns, because I suspect these beasts dream of us disarmed and living in camps.

    Someone needs to tell poor George that the Japanese interred American citizens (civilians) who were living in all the islands overrun during the war they started.
    These interred people lived under savage and very primitive conditions compared to the conditions the Japanese endured in American camps.

      Oh, I’m in no way justifying the horrible and brutal treatment of US GIs under Imperial Japanese troops. Still lumping American citizens of Japanese heritage in with the imperial Japanese is like calling me a Socialist because my ancestors are Scottish and French. Yeah the Frogs and the Scotts are serious pinkos, but MY people were people who LEFT those nations for THIS nation and integrated with the American way of life.

      Same goes for Japanese people who gained their citizenship.

    The people I am talking about were not U.S. GI.s They were U.S. civilian citizens in countrys such as the Phillippines, Malaysia, etc.

    Enemy aliens are normally interred during wartime, and this has been a customary part of warfare for centuries. What Mr. Takei fails to mention is that not all persons of Japanese descent were interred. Only those who were Japanese citizens. Granted, some also held dual US-Japanese citizenship, but they were given a choice between renouncing their Japanese citizenship or going to the camps. There were also internment camps for German and Italian citizens, and those who held dual citizenship were likewise given the same choice. This is a great deal more choice than the Japanese gave to American or British civilian citizens they captured in Malaysia and the Phillipines.
