American Muslims to concentration camps?


This video from the USA says about itself:

10 December 2013

After Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, many Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps. Betty Taira was only eight when her family was sent to the Heart Mountain internment camp in Wyoming.

From the Huffington Post in the USA:

Trump Supporter Cites Japanese Internment As ‘Precedent’ For Muslim Registry

”The president needs to protect America first.”

11/17/2016 12:24 am ET

A supporter of President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday cited the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II ― considered one of the darkest periods in American history ― as the basis for creating a federal registry for immigrants from Muslim countries.

Carl Higbie, a retired Navy SEAL, made the case in an interview with Fox NewsMegyn Kelly, who was decidedly incredulous upon hearing it.

  1. We have an extremely short window to stop Steve Bannon–a white supremacist, anti-Semite, and domestic abuser–from reaching the White House.1

    Right now, some members of Congress are rightly protesting Bannon’s appointment as Donald Trump’s chief strategist, while the rest are under extreme pressure to join the protest.
    Every member of Congress has the power and responsibility to keep rabid racists and misogynists out of the highest level of government.

    Protests have already erupted across the country, and members of Congress have either joined or are keeping a watchful eye. If we speak out right now, we can make sure they do everything in their power to block this white supremacist from the White House. Can you call on your member of Congress to stop Bannon?

    Steve Bannon is infamous for his bigotry and misogyny. Here are a few of Bannon’s “greatest hits”:

    Under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart news became a leading platform for white supremacists in the United States.2
    He harassed Fox News host Gretchen Carlson to defend serial sexual predator, Roger Ailes.3
    His appointment by Trump has been endorsed by the former head of the KKK.4
    He was charged with domestic violence, but he threatened his ex-wife to keep her from testifying against him.5

    Republican or Democrat, every member of Congress knows a white supremacist, anti-Semitic misogynist can’t be in the highest level of government.

    Despite what congressional leadership would like us to think, they do have options to act–they can even block Trump’s cabinet nominations until Bannon is off the table–and they should. If we act immediately, Congress can force Trump to rescind this appointment.
