Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia warned the University of Hawaii law school the Supreme Court will eventually authorize wartime abuse of civil rights like internment camps. The Washington Examiner reported:

Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.

“You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again,” Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.

Really? We are so weak that I can’t even imagine the United States accomplishing something like Interment Camps. Today Japanese Camps would never happen.

Yep. Justice Scalia is one very brilliant man.

I’m sure that he is also aware that we can also have another 19 April, 1775 moment too.

They couldn’t even control New Orleans during Katrina. In WWII everybody didn’t have an assault rifle or 5 and a lot of ammo to go with them. The govt can’t even round up a bunch of illegal aliens.

Boston? That bastion of conservatism and gun owners? That Boston?

What works in Boston may not work in fly-over country.

Its easy to imagine todays progressives interring 'enemies of the government', i.e. taxpayers who complain too loudly about the confiscatory levels of taxation.

After all, they advocate taking food & essential services from poor children, single women and immigrants.

I am sure they will. I think most of us have expected this. I don't think they can do this, without a major gun grab first. Since I think many will resist, it could get bloody.

Why not? They already allow, hell PROMOTE, slavery (40%+ income taxes) vs. 4th, 5th, 13th...

What matters of a ‘little inconvenience’ of detention in the War on Poverty/Drugs/Terror/etc.... /semi-s

Those who gather and present information are willing to
consistently believe the lies of one side and never the truth of
the other. I’d say anything is possible.

” internment camps “

I read that as FEMA Camps.

Do NOT Tread On ME. You wouldn’t LIKE me when you tread on me.
