Internet is atwitter over stories about FEMA detention camps intended to lock away law abiding citizens of the United States of America.
“This could never happen in a million years!” Well, not only CAN it happen, IT’S HAPPENED BEFORE.
Loyal American citizens were herded into camps with no possibility of appeal. They committed no crimes. Neither were any of them engaging in suspicious activities. Yet, locked up they were. Government believed only the POSSIBILITY they would place their loyalties with the Empire of Japan or Germany, in place of their native country – America.
Beginning in 1942, our government began forcing descendants of Japanese ancestry into concentration camps.
Well, you may think, “those Japanese people look suspicious”.
Then you should know we did the same to Germans and Italians at various times.
This leads to the question: Who are the ‘suspicious people’ today?
Under this sitting president, the feds have classified Christians,
TEA Party people and various conservative groups as “terrorists”.
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.“ — unknown
