    It was an unfortunate event….but let’s be honest here. There were no gas chambers and mass graves. If you call it a “concentration camp” people immediately think of Nazi Germany (even if the Nazi’s didn’t actually invent concentration camps…the British did). And while certainly not pleasant, what these Japanese American’s went through was nothing like people went through in Europe.

    Just for a moment, hearing the unvarnished truth, the audience is moved to silence.

    Gila River Indian Community in Arizona has the foundations of an internment camp within the reservation. The buildings are gone because the tribe dismantled for homes

    They couldn’t be “internment camps” because the inmates weren’t citizens of an enemy nation. They were concentration camp. The task was to round up and lock away undesirables without any legal bases, without charge, without due process of any kind robbing citizens of their rights, property and future. Just to get rid of them. And setting up these camps in such hostile environments as they were, had clearly the expressed intend to kill many of them along the way.

    This illegal immigrant topic is so controversial. Many after them because they cross the border illegally…. Is there a loophole in the system they can use? After all, many of us used loopholes to avoid paying taxes. We are ok with many are trying to play the system to benefits themselves, yet we are after these vulnerable and in desperate help. … These are just facts….

    it is a USA tribute to the German concentration camp system…which itself is a tribute to the Indian reservation system made by the British colonial governments..
    it is a homage to the KJV bible jew god of war..it is in the KJV city of London Admiralty law bible so it is law…you need to be born with a ‘title’ to have rights…like ‘judge’ or ‘rabbi’….’priest’..

    George suggests the term shouldn’t be used, the other interview has the term in its title. Brilliant consistency.
