I’m referring to the paranoid forced relocation of Japanese-Americans to prison camps during World War II.
Before the war, very few Americans knew anything about the strange, exotic and mysterious cultures and beliefs of the Oriental People.
Most American’s knowledge of these people was limited to folklore, fairy tales, fables and legends. They had ‘slanty’ eyes, Yellow skin, funny names and a variety of weird faiths that just scared the Hell out of people with no understanding — which was pretty much everybody.
Paranoia ran deep. The government was needlessly afraid that American citizens of Japanese origin would hold a stronger faith and allegiance to their emperor, ancestors and strange gods than to the United States.
Over 127,000 United States citizens were ripped from their homes, schools and businesses by the unconstitutional actions of a government that feared what it couldn’t understand.
The Supreme Court upheld the legality of the relocation order in Hirabayashi v. United States and Korematsu v. United States.
Japanese-Americans, however, proved themselves to be precisely the kind of fiercely patriotic Americans the country needed.
We were wrong, and we eventually admitted it. There was even a meager attempt to compensate the surviving internees for their ruined lives, shame and suffering with money.
The matter is being quietly pushed out of the History books along with other unpopular bits we’d prefer to forget, but had best remember.
Fast Forward from 1942 to Today.
If you consider the attacks in the US and across the globe, you should see that we face a similar threat, but this time, it’s very real.
Today we face the most dangerous enemy in our nation’s history – the evil of radical Islamic conquest.
Paranoia is a baseless fear. Today, however, we have over two million Muslims living among us and are accepting more disguised as refugees. There is little doubt that when the chips go down, their loyalties will lie with their Nation of Islam and Sharia, and not our Nation of Liberty and Freedom.
I’ll admit I’m about to make some wild-assed assumptions, but I’ll try to be conservative.
- Only half of the two million Muslims are truly devout.
(One million Muslims are ‘devout.’)
- Only half of the one million devout Muslims are radicalized.
- Only half of the 500,000 radical Muslims are ready, willing and/or able to become martyrs in the name and glory of Allah leaving 250,000
- I’m really paranoid and am only half right.
This leaves a conservative 125,000 radical Islamists, living among us, ready, passionately willing, determined, well equipped and more than able to launch potentially catastrophic attacks on U.S. “soft targets.”
Add to these hundreds of thousands of disenfranchised and devout Muslim converts soon to be released, or recently released from the prison system plus tens of thousands of Syrian Muslims and the magnitude of this very real threat to America becomes obvious.
Perhaps today’s fear is not as baseless as it was in the past.
We live in a great Nation, the United States of America. There is, however, another nation living within our borders, threatening all free Americans, and all other nations — the Nation of Islam.
Separating the Muslim faith/religion from the Nation of Islam is impossible.
The Nation of Islam exists to become “The One World Nation,” founded upon blind obedience to a cruel, evil, regressive and brutal, “One World Order,” rooted in Sharia law, and the “One World Faith.”
Just as we didn’t understand the Japanese culture and mindset during WWII, we have little understanding or appreciation for the fervor and devotion of the radical Islamists among us to their dreams of world conquest.
These people show us every day that they are quite happy to kill, maim and torture without hesitation. Radical Islamists are genuinely proud and willing to die to advance their agenda.
Many loyal patriots talk a good game, which is easy to do in the anonymity and safety of cyberspace.
How many “Internet Patriots,” however, can honestly say that their level of devotion to God and country, and their willingness to sacrifice themselves, their families and loved ones for their cause is even close to, much less equal to that of the enemy?
And that’s the view from Egg Manor
