In what was known as the "Ross Affair" back in the 1900's, connected with Stanford University - because that's where he worked at the time - Professor Edward Ross said the following:
And should the worst come to the worst it would be better for us if we were to turn our guns upon every vessel bringing Japanese to our shores rather than to permit them to land
Ross is not an insignificant name to be familiar with. He was a big believer in Eugenics, and it was he who coined the term "race suicide" - which was an important term during the early 20th century progressive/eugenic era. From what I can tell, where the term was coined was in his address titled "The Causes of Race Superiority"(The address starts on page 67, but I have pointed you to page 88 where he uses the term). It was Theodore Roosevelt who popularized the term.
Ross ended up serving as National Director for the ACLU from 1940 to 1950.
As I write this, I have glanced at Ross' Wikipedia page several times and I note how sanitized it is. Should anybody be willing to be a wikipedia editor, you could really do some good(or damage, as the progressives would likely look at it) by un-sanitizing their pages with what Paul Harvey used to call "The Rest of the Story". I don't have the time for this. Those who are my regular readers know I always dig to the original source, so you would have all you would need. Conservapedia doesn't even have a page on Ross. This is a big mistake.
