You'd think that the case of Japanese-American (and -Canadian) Internment in WWII would be a 70 year old warning against the evils of putting the illusion of safety above the civil rights of citizens.

Nope.

Learning from our mistakes robs us of the opportunity to make them again.

Peking Ballet: I think we did learn a lesson from Japanese internment. Oh wait we didn't because there are presently Muslim internment camps everywhere in America. Yup after 911 we just rounded up all the Muslims and put them in camps. Yup that's exactly what we did.

MongoMcMichael
Right. We rounded them up on an island instead, then proceeded to never let them go or bring them to trial ever. That's not like the Japanese internment at all!

Way to go, Tugboat.

Cena actually gets a point here because that really is a bad analogy.

Yes, Guantanamo is a shitstain but the sheer numbers of people affected by the internment camps demonstrates racism on a level that you can't really compare it to.

And Cena, there is a point that must be conceded that any personal freedom taken away because of race based suspicion is, however marginal, still a chip taken out of democracy that should be abhorred. Which is what has happened through full admission when it was learned that the government kept Guantanamo afloat even after finding out that half of the prisoners there were most likely totally innocent.

Internment camp survivor? By that don't they mean everybody who went to an internment camp. Saying you survived a Japanese internment camp is like saying you survived summer camp.
Cuntipede
Shut up you goddamned moron.

Buggerman
So says the tough guy who worships men in spandex underwear. LOLz.

Cena_mark
How am I wrong Buggeryman? Were the internment camps really death camps full of gas chambers? You libs will do anything to give our country a black eye. We did what we thought was needed. They were different times and we dealt with the Japanese in a very humane manner.
And I don't worship them and Cena doesn't even wear spandex, so there.

SolRo
Guys, cena is just saying that having your home and business taken away and having your family put in prison is OK as long as the prison is pretty nice.

I agree with him and think every retarded redneck should be put in an internment camp until america stops being stupid.


Buggerman
Hmm.. good point, SolRo. I guess those scary Obama Re-Education Camps aren't such a bad idea after all. Cena was right all along. It was wrong of me to judge someone simply by the fact they are into sweaty man voyeurism. My bad.

MongoMcMichael
Well, Cena *is* a libertarian, which means he loves it when Big Government rounds up law-abiding citizens on insubstantial suspicions and keeps them behind barbed wire.

Wait...

I know cena is a fucking idiot, but it deserves to be said:
People who pull this moral relativism shit with the Japanese American internment camps are pretty stupid and/or massively ignorant.
The camps weren't "death camps" in the Nazi sense of the word, but it's not like the people were simply put somewhere awkward but comfortable, then set free with a polite apology. The camps were overcrowded and little more than prisons. Many people did, in fact, die from illnesses they contracted as a result of the shitty conditions. Most citizens who were interred under these conditions were effectively declared "non citizens" by the US government and had all of their assets and property taken from them. What happened during WWII was inexcusable and easily one of the most shameful things our country has ever done to its own citizens in the name of so-called "security."

Cena_mark
Did I say Japanese internment was a good thing? Of course not. We shouldn't have done it, but for you libs to act like it was the Holocaust.
And Stanly Palin, we can relate morals to other things. Every thing gets rated with other things. Steeling a candy bar and Rape are both crimes, but I guess they're the same. Don't want to be morally relative.

Hey man, fuck you. I live near the Idaho internment camps, and I can tell you I'd fucking hate to live in a horse stall during the Idaho winter. Or summer.

And they did live in horse stalls. At least until the stalls were replaced with sub mobile home levels of barracks style housing with no insulation and shitty windows.

Avengingatheist
How does one steel a candy bar? Does that involve dipping the candy in molten metal? I understand how one can steal a candy bar but not how one can steel a candy bar.
