That Could NEVER Happen Here…

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker

Anyone remember what happened today, 71 years ago?

Probably not.

On February 19th, 1942 FDR willfully and intentionally violated The Constitution, an act for which he should have been impeached.

I am speaking of the Japanese internment — the rounding up of over 100,000 people who were frog-marched into Concentration Camps on American soil.

Far more than half were American Citizens with a full and complete set of alleged Constitutional Rights.

We, America, did this.

[...]

NEVER AGAIN is not just for Jewish people.

It is for us all.

Karl Dennigner's 'greenbacker'-ness aside, he hits a homerun here.

Immediately after 9/11, during that month when emotions

were running on all cylinders, I still think that we(Americans), in the name of "freedom and security", would have allowed this to happen to those of Middle Eastern descent. Look at what we've "allowed" to happen since then - always in the name of "freedom and safety".

Scary

Isn't it? I was living in Dallas at the time and there was a large Islamic community not far from me that got attacked by what are normally law abiding citizens. Not sure but I think some innocent people died in that mess. I don't remember all the details. It's been a long time ago. It was really close to home though and I remember feeling anger but at the same time feeling like it was unfair to take it out on people here. I have seen and known those people first hand and like people everywhere some are nice and some are natural born jerks.

skippy

It most certainly is

I was living in NYC at the time - not awake yet - and FURIOUS(I WANTED BLOOD). As far as I know, attacks happened in throughout NY, and Michigan, and they continued for quite a while. MANY Sikhs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikh were attacked, even though they are a completely different religion altogether than Muslims. Just the resemblance, you know? Real Sikhs and real Muslims are very peaceful people and always condemn terrorism and violence. I guess in a way, it's similar to how war mongering chicken hawks call themselves Christians.
