The late Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, predicted that the Supreme Court would one day look the other way and either by overt commission of by benign neglect, authorize another FEMA camp style incarceration in the midst of the presence of war, or in the midst of domestic disturbance leading to the abuse of the civil rights of civil rights of specific Americans. Consequently, this would lead to another round of history repeating itself as Americans are sent off to internment camps (ie FEMA camps). Scalia referenced World War II era Japanese-Americans and the internment camps they were sent off to internment camps as a prime example of his point.
An Associated Press report quotes the former Supreme Court Justice in reference to use of the latin phrase, which loosely translated states that, "in times of war, the laws fall silent… You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again..tthe comments were made in reference to the heinous Korematsu v. United States ruling which attempted to legitimize FDR's use of internment camps for American citizens of Japanese heritage). The operative term here would be American citizens. Anerican citizens who were detained for overt physical racial characteristics.
That day has arrived. It happened in Houston and it happening, right now, in Hawaii.
FEMA Has Been Practicing for Mass Incarcerations for a Very Long Time
Retired US Army General and the former Supreme Allied Commander of Europe for NATO Wesley Clark advocated, on MSNBC the rounding up "radicalized" and "disloyal" Americans and putting them in internment camps for the "duration" of the war on terror. This would effectively be a life sentence for political reasons. This makes Youtube, Facebook and Google tame by comparison.
