This country has ALWAYS had concentration camps. The government calls them ‘Indian’ reservations…though the people in them aren’t from India. Ignorance prevails even in the 21st Century because in most respects they are still effectively doing their purpose.
My stepmom as a child and her family were ripped from their home in 1942 and thrown into one. They lost their home in San Francisco due to the inability to pay their property taxes (locked in a cage for years could have had something to do with that I’m guessing) and, when the gates were finally opened, they had nothing and were on the street broke and homeless.
Not much has changed, has it? This country never learns from history.
And the prison/industrial complex is pretty much on-going black concentration camps since those are used the same way for the similar purposes.
Hey, anybody else ever been through El Paso in the summertime? I hitch-hiked through back in the 70s. About killed me. Summer is coming, and with the crashing climate I’m assuming the incredible scorching heat is going to be blasting down sooner than expected because like most every year it seems that happens earlier and earlier. Has anybody else reading this stood under a concrete overpass on asphalt in El Paso on a 115’F days? Care to tell us about how it felt? Empathy only goes so far…
But I’m confident that someone in that vicious federal bureaucracy has thought ahead and already ordered hundreds of body bags by now. Best to be prepared, eh? Your tax dollars at work!!
