Wesley Clark Calls for Internment Camps for "Radicalized" Americans

    Right out of FDR's playbook:

    Retired general and former Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark on Friday called for World War II-style internment camps to be revived for “disloyal Americans.” In an interview with MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts in the wake of the mass shooting in Chatanooga, Tennessee, Clark said that during World War II, “if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put him in a camp, they were prisoners of war.”

    He called for a revival of internment camps to help combat Muslim extremism, saying, “If these people are radicalized and they don’t support the United States and they are disloyal to the United States as a matter of principle, fine. It’s their right and it’s our right and obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.”

    Since when has Muslim extremism been a problem?

    I'm disappointed in you for tipping your hand on Word 4. You're better than that.

    I'm confused. I thought the plan was to hold regional Muhammad-caricature contests so we can draw them out in the open and kill them with our Second Amendment rights?

    I agree with Gen. Clark and think that we should kill two birds with one stone and make Texas the internment camp.


    Can coordinate disloyal American intake with Jade Helm invastion plans

    If we fence off Texas, we get much of the Mexican border fence built be default

    Ted Cruz is already there

    The snag with Gen. Clark's plan is though many may be in favor of locking away radicalized Muslims bent on destroying America, the NRA may have an issue with taking away their guns for fear of setting a precedent.

    So it may die in committee.

    "Disloyal Americans". "Enemy combatants"

    It's all the same.

    Bullseye. Exactly what I was about to post.

    Sorry, YF, but your opening line makes it way to obvious that this is an agenda post. Somewhat interesting story, might be worth discussion under different circumstances, but not when the intro makes it so clear that it's just meant to provoke another dumb left/right pissing match. You gotta be more subtle about this shit.

    LOL. Where'd the idea come from?

    Maybe he got it from Wilson's internment of German-Americans during WWI.

    But, I'm not sure why any liberal/leftist would be upset with how I phrased my post. While FDR was certainly a liberal, and remains a liberal hero to this day, his internment of Japanese-Americans was obviously a conservative tactic, and thus does not stain the liberal movement in any way.
