Little Green Footballs ^ | June 27, 2009 | Charles Johnson

Posted on 06/27/2009 1:10:35 PM PDT by EveningStar

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) goes on the Glenn Beck Comedy Hour, and repeats her contention that the government might use census data to round people up and put them in internment camps.

I saw it....I don't think he blew her off.

I think he probably agrees with her at some level.

So the census is going to be used to allocate Representatives based upon people who are not citizens? Yep, it is an outrage.

You know, I never understood why people just didn’t bold faced LIE on the census...skew the whole results..how are they gonna know?

Say for instance that pacific islanders live at your house...and that you have no toilets.

I saw him call the Leftists who voted for the House Bill yesterday “traitorous”. He seems fed up.

Here is an idea:

If your state voted for McCain, DOUBLE the number of people in your house hold.

If your state voted for Obama, tell they that you are a hermit and live all alone!

Michelle is spot on. It’s clear that Beck had a hard break that he had to get to before she even got to the point about the Japanese being rounded up. One other thing, Michelle looks really hot!!!

Quite the opposite, Beck was in agreement with her and shaking his head at where the federal government is headed.

As a side note what the heck happened to LGF I thought they were on our side, but lately it seems to have more in common with DU-think than Conservatism.

I’d like to see someone do an on-the-street interview with passersby - something like this:
“Excuse me sir, are you aware that a radical Republican representative is refusing to complete the census because she thinks it could be used by the government to round up people and put them in concentration camps?”
“Oh, yeah, right - those radical conservatives..those people are crazy, man!”
“Sir, are you aware that the government ALREADY HAS used the census to round up people and put them in concentration camps?”
“What??”
“Are you aware that the government ALREADY HAS used the census to round up people and put them in concentration camps?”
“No way, man...you must be one of those freaking idiots as well...”
The morons have no concept of their own county’s history, so we live in fishbowl of ignorance. Ah yes, American education...financed by the taxpayers...run by the government....Next up: Healthcare!

Good idea, you should double your data, if need be, so that after ACORN processes it, you may break even.

I know LGF will not allow any criticism of islam. I guess CJ must be one of those folks who lobbied the U.N. for the measure that pretty much criminalizes anything negative or controversial about islam.

The government does have far more sophisticated ways to mine data in a way the Nazis didn't. Governments that want to stay in power have no problem abusing that power.

After yesterday, I wish we had at least four more Michele Bachmanns in the House.

She's definitely not in the top 219 with regard to craziness (or corruption).

This should be kept in mind when posting LGF stuff here. Charles Johnson does all these rants against creationism while supporting global warming junk science.

In between banning people who don't totally agree with him, supporting the discredited DHS report on domestic terrorists, smearing anti jihad forces as racists; etc., Charles has gone off the deep end and this should be noted when posting his stuff here.

A barf alert would also be helpful on this board.

Johnson calling anybody loopy is . . . . humorous.

The only information the Census Department is entitled to know is how many people live in this house. Period. End of conversation.

The Congresswoman is 100% correct, and she is NOT loopy at all.

She’s right. Democrats have used the census before to round up US citizens put them in internment camps. King Barry 0’s black panther brownshirt thugs are ready to do it again.

It started with the usual "enlightened" distaste over southern social conservatives, but the psychotic break occurred over "birthers." That's when he really started gibbering and banning anyone who dared not march in lockstep with CJ The Great. A persecution complex combined with delusions of grandeur is never a pretty thing.

Agreed. I wish that the Government would try to put everyone in internment camps. The defaults would come sooner, and we could elect some men instead of sensitive New Age guys and women.

It seems the point she is trying to make is the government can use the information you give for the census against you LIKE they did to the Japanese-Americans during WWII.

In that case, I agree with her. It is none of the government’s business how many cats I have or how many times I go to the bathroom each day.

That was an addendum to her comments about the govt. attempting to garner information on yours and mine households.

Lets put it into perspective shall we? Anything you say on your Census Questionaire may be held against you which ultimately was in the case of domestic Japanese during WW-II.......Kinda like a Miranda Questionaire.......

Could any kind of govt. response to this gathered info be used against you and me? I don't know but after this past 150 days there is nothing this current administration had done that doesn't send shivers of fear up my spine...........

I’m surprised to see that no one, at least so far, has commented on the fact that Census data was indeed used for rounding up Japanese-Americans for internment after the Pearl Harbor attack.

http://newsgroups.derkeiler.com/pdf/Archive/Soc/soc.culture.asian.american/2007-04/msg00002.pdf

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=confirmed-the-us-census-b

It is safe to assume that whatever data an institution collects will be used by that institution for whatever purpose its managers believe they can get away with. Given the lack of respect for constitutional strictures (except as a convenient club to beat in-power political opponents with, until you can get back into power), it is prudent to assume that whatever data is collected can, and will, be used against you if you cross the powers-that-be.

A useful reference:
http://liberrants.blogspot.com/2009/05/hey-fellow-liberty-lovers-lets-all-make.html
Money quote:
“For those naïve and disconnected sheep who stilll believe tthat anything emanating from USG sources is anything but a lie, particularly the Census Bureau’s official bovine excrement that census data is used only for the purpose of determining Congressional Districts, I have just three words for you: Japanese-American Internment. Yes, dear naïve fools, it was data from the 1940 Census that the government used to locate, dispossess, and intern, like common criminals, Japanese-Americans in the opening months of World War II. Is there any doubt in a reasonable person’s mind that the fascist police state now evolving before our very eyes will have ANY qualms whatsoever about using the Census Bureau as just another weapon in its bureaucratic armory of tyranny tools?”
