    So, just a little test to see if anybody here has any sense at all.

    Can anybody here tell the difference between:

    and

    Seems like the first one claims that I, personally, support Japanese internment camps in my thinking.

    Nice way to open an OP.

    A deep breath and a cup of herbal tea might have a calming effect...

    The Democrats put people in concentration camps in World War II just as a Democrat put Debs in prison during World War I.

    It is the Democrats who want to bring in more people to vote for them and it is the Democrats who want to keep out anyone who will not vote Democrat.

    Both political parties want cheap labor and neither political party has any business sense.

    The civilian leading the charge for Japanese internment was Earl Warren as much a Republican as they come. In 1948, he was Dewey's vice presidential running mate.

    The President who ordered people put in concentration camps was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as much a Democrat as they come.

    Are you going to call me a name now for posting against you?

    Nope. I simply saying that the internment was not just a Democratic action. I'm saying it was bi-partisan. California in WW2 was not the solid liberal Democratic state is today.

    The slanderous claim was made that I support Japanese internment, in spite of the fact that I've been very consistent in condemning it as a Progressive evil and have been a very vocal and consistent advocate for civil liberties.

    When called on it, he then claimed he didn't say I supported it, but that the same kind of thinking as mine supported it.

    In this thread, however, at least he was honest enough to admit that there is no difference.

    This didn't warrant an entire thread. :laugh: And while they don't read the same, the context of the first, considering what's in it, seems to make clear that it's referencing a type of thinking.

    Well, I am glad that you are not calling me a name for disagreeing with you again, as usual in my case.

    Let's see, a federal action under a Democrat FDR and a federal action (imprisonment of Debs) under a Democrat Woodrow Wilson--it was the Democrats who put people in concentration camps. Democrats controlled Congress and Democrats controlled the White House. FDR had 4 terms.

    Oh, and it was Democrat Obama who put that poor Egyptian in prison, charging him with the responsibility of Benghazi.

    Not saying the Dems hands are entirely clean on the matter. I am saying they share the dirt. The people pushing for internment came from both parties. If men like Warren hadn't pushed so hard, FDR might not have take action. And the action had little to do with WW1 situation.

    No, it means the same type of thinking lead to the internment of the Japanese-Americans. The whole group was painted with the same brush. It's not a matter of history repeating its self. It's a matter of it rhyming.

    I'd never say that I supported internment, but I would say that I completely understood the mindset of the American people at the time they did this!

    And let me tell you, unless you lived through what they went through in that particular period of time, it may not be too wise to critique them in a negative view! These folks didn't have all the electronic security devices we have today, and internment must have made some sense as a form of keeping others safe!

    At least, these internment camps were not torturing those in them, nor were they using the women as sex slaves. Sure it was wrong, but that, again, was a different time and place in humanity's history.

    Yeah, right. It just turns out that liberals are repressive but they always blame someone else. Three Democrat Presidents imprisoned people during wars, just because.

    My advice to you is to stay in a blue zip code where people will agree with you and you will not have to call me names for disagreeing with you because I live in a red zip code. You seem to have very fancy shoes but I do not care to stand in your shoes ever.

    You should really learn when not to say anything. Thoughts like these should never leave your head. All they do is confirm to the rest of us how ignorant you are.
