Collective Punishment Is All The Rage

Until a few weeks ago, western governments and the press were bemoaning collective punishment of Japanese people during WWII, and they associated it with President Trump.

    For entertainment, the left looks for more tender spots where they can jab the right. They can’t help themselves. They’re like mosquitos.

    Japanese internment is much misunderstood- the policy may have been mistaken, and undoubtedly caused difficulty and hardship for many, but much of what people believe about internment just isn’t so.

    First, the camps were not concentration camps- not even close. Residents could work in the local economy, and mostly come and go as they pleased,

    Most of the US citizens interned were minors whose parents were Japanese nationals- were they to be left to wander the streets of SF or LA? Oh, and German and Italian nationals were interned as well.

    Fear of a Nisei fifth column was not just conjured out of thin air- google the Niihau incident .

    Compensation was paid, both after the war, and much later

    And the camps were mostly closed by mid 1944

    A more interesting question is why none of the Japanese in Hawaii were interned.

    None of this invalidates Tony’s point, but this topic’s always been a pet peeve
