Wesley Clark Calls for Internment Camps for “Radical” Americans

In the below video former General Wesley Clark calls for the creation of internment camps to segregate “radicalized” Americans from the rest of the population as we did in World War 2 with Japanese Americans. This is an interesting position from a man who had no shortage of criticisms for George W. Bush’s violations of civil liberties. Apparently protecting civil liberties is not really the mission here. Violating civil liberties is fine so long as it is your team doing the violating. Watch the video for yourself…

There are a few issues with his “ideas” of how to protect Americans. First, exactly who gets to decide who is “radical?” Today we might say it is radical Islamic terrorists, but as we have seen before people that believe in strong 2nd Amendment rights have been labeled “terrorists” on more than one occasion. Does that group get put into one of these camps? How about people that believe in any of the other Bill of Rights and is willing to fight for them. Are those individuals now “radicalized” and need to be put into a camp?

We actually have people out there that instead of having freedom of speech guaranteed by the 1st Amendment that we should create categories of “hate” speech that is illegal and should be a crime. Wow. Who gets to decide what “hate” speech is? Is that just speech you disagree with?

So if someone says they don’t believe in LGBT lifestyle is that now hate speech and said person needs to be put into a camp for being “radicalized”. When we start deciding what speech is protected and what isn’t and are constantly pointing fingers at each other and saying this person or what they said is offending me and they are a “hate” speech person or “radical” for their idea we are in VERY dangerous waters. Add to that the idea that we should start shoving these people into camps and you have the all the makings of another holocaust.

Maybe those people that believe in a strong 4th Amendment and believe that having a warrant before being able to indiscriminately search someone’s house, computer, library records, phone, business records, car is a good idea. Are those people now “wrong thinking” people that are “radicalized?” Maybe they are hiding something, if they didn’t have something to hide they would just agree to the search, right? They must be a radical, maybe we should lock them up in a camp?

The issue is who gets to decide who is radicalized and a threat and needs to go into one of these camps? What is the process for deciding they have to go? Is it just their position on an issue? Will they have to show they are a danger to society? If so, how exactly does this new Minority Report commission convict someone of a crime they haven’t actually done yet, but may in the future?

If we decide to start shoving people into these camps do they have a trial? appeals? Is there a sentencing system or are they simply put in there until they are no longer “radicalized?” Who gets to decide when that has been achieved? What happens to them in this camp? Do they get re-educated or tortured until they have seen the light? What happens to their property they owned before they got shoved in this camp, doe we just divvy it up among the “non-radicalized” people living outside these camps?

See you start getting a lot of sticky questions when you decide it is a good idea to start labeling various people you disagree with as “radicalized” and “terrorist” and decide to start stripping them of civil liberties and locking them up for crimes they *might* do someday, but haven’t done today and quite frankly may never do.

Depending on exactly what “radicalized” group we are discussing here doing a crime isn’t what is happening so much as standing up for freedom. If their only crime is being “radicalized” according to some person’s definition of the word is then some star chamber of people somewhere get to determine that and shove them in a camp until this group starts thinking the right way? Wow. Just Wow, what else can you say about something like this.

The really scary thing is this clown is actually brought on to discuss this on news shows as it should actually be considered a real policy idea. This maniac should not be given a platform anywhere where his ideas are actually elevated to the level of serious discussion.

In addition, this moron was and may be again a presidential candidate. Finally, at one time he was actually a general in the military, you know, one of only two groups, police being the other one, that should have all the guns according to liberals. Now that should scare every single person.

Obama Snubbing France after Terror Attack

Here is an interesting opinion piece about the recent snubbing Obama gave to France after their recent terror attacks. The piece does a good job at outlining the reasons for this. Basically, Obama is more interested in looting hardworking Americans of their earnings in an effort to make the world “equal”. So in the name of equality he continues to ignore serious terrorist threats. Nice. The piece goes on to point out that is has been Obama’s mission since the beginning.

Unfortunately what Obama doesn’t understand is that you can’t have equal outcomes until you have equal inputs. In other words it is a fact of life that some people work harder, longer and are simply more talented than others. Those people will generally put more into life to get more out. Those that don’t will often be on the bottom and stay there. Idiots like Obama want to somehow punish those individuals that work harder and make everyone and everything equal so that regardless of what you put in or are capable of putting in you get the same out as the next guy who didn’t do this. In short, socialism.

Using terms like “JV Team” when describing terrorist is designed to put out the message that these guys aren’t a serious threat so we can go back to his favorite topics of looting, spreading the wealth, socialism and robbing the “rich” to give to the poor. The only thing is the terrorist don’t seem to care what Obama is interested in talking about or doing. They are still plotting and planning and will keep attempting to carry out attacks against the west.

No doubt as in France these attacks will mostly likely be these lone wolf types we have been seeing pop up and will happen both overseas and sadly on American shores, eventually. This makes it even more important that Americans continue to protect their 2nd Amendment rights. Your ability to protect yourself may eventually be all that stands between these terrorist psychopaths and your own life or your family’s life. We certainly can’t count on Obama to take the threats seriously.

And this folks is what happens when you elect a JV guy to be President because of all the free stuff he promises to steal from the “rich” to give to you.
