USA & Germany Race for Camps

The USA has horrible history with operating camps designed to Americanize certain populations deemed a threat. Such as the Japanese, German and Italian inmates that were rounded up by the WRA and placed in camps. The camps were authorized by executive order 9066 signed Franklin D Roosevelt Feb 1942. This choice by Roosevelt to relocate and reeducate came just 12 days after the Nazi Party decided on the Final Solution for the Jewish problem at the Wannsee Conference in Germany was to relocate than exterminate.

Both Germany and USA started to build their relocation teams and establishing camps throughout each of the countries.  Auschwitz is complex consisting of concentration, extermination, and labor camps in Upper Silesia. It was established in 1940 as a concentration camp and included a killing center in 1942 after the Wannsee Conference.

February 27, 1942 Idaho Governor Chase Clark tells a congressional committee in Seattle that Japanese would be welcome in Idaho only if they were in “concentration camps under military guard.” Some credit Clark with the conception of what was to become a true scenario.

March,18th, 1942 – Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9102 gave authority to the War Relocation Authority (WRA) to start finding locations for interment of the Japanese, German and Italian refugees. The goal of educating them in American ways was the main priority, along with identifying potential security risks. The executive order was spurred by a combination of war hysteria and reactions to the Niihau Incident.

A month later in April,  Nazi German extermination camp Sobibór opens in occupied Poland on the outskirts of the town of Sobibór. Between April 1942 and October 1943, at least 160,000 people are killed here. Some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe were established during 1933-1945. They estimate that 15 million to 20 million people died or were imprisoned in the sites.World War II Japanese American internment camps

During this time, the WRA was running just as fast as the Nazi party with the construction of internment camps inside the USA. Learning how to develop the social structure to avoid retaliation inside the camps was a difficult task for the WRA. Soon the inmates had committees and representatives to express the needs of the inmates. WRA still retained control on all important decisions. Literally leaving the inmates with the choice of meals and not much else. A family of 6 living in a 6’x 19′, Sounds like fun…

June 1942 The movie “Little Tokyo, U.S.A.” is released by Twentieth Century Fox. In it, the Japanese American community is portrayed as a “vast army of volunteer spies” and “blind worshippers of their Emperor, ” as described in the film’s voice-over prologue.

Martial Law in US Internment Camps

Fear — not evidence — drove the U.S. to place over 127,000 Japanese-Americans in concentration camps

Several  US Internment Camp were placed under martial law . Military control has lasted for two months, and during this time 200 to 350 men were imprisoned in an overcrowded stockade (held under charges such as "general troublemaker" and "too well educated for his own good"), while the general population was subject to curfews, unannounced searches, and restrictions on work and recreational activities

Failed Terrorist Event That pushed further Camps

Operation Pastorius was a failed German intelligence plan for sabotage inside the United States during World War II. The operation was staged in June 1942 and was to be directed against strategic American economic targets. Their mission was to stage sabotage attacks on American economic targets: hydroelectric plants at Niagara Falls; the Aluminum Company of America's plants in Illinois, Tennessee, and New York; locks on the Ohio River near Louisville, Kentucky; the Horseshoe Curve, a crucial railroad pass near Altoona, Pennsylvania, as well as the Pennsylvania Railroad's repair shops at Altoona; a cryolite plant in Philadelphia; Hell Gate Bridge in New York; and Pennsylvania Station in Newark, New Jersey. The agents were also instructed to spread a wave of terror by planting explosives on bridges, railroad stations, water facilities, Jewish-owned businesses, and public places. They were given counterfeit birth certificates, Social Security Cards, draft deferment cards, nearly $175,000 in American money, and driver's licenses

USA Internment Topaz Camp opened: September 11, 1942 (first internees arrived) Camp closed: October 31, 1945 (last internees left) Total number interned: 11,212 joined United States Army while interned at Topaz: 451 (80 volunteers, 371 drafted)

History Tends to repeat itself

In recent years, concentration camps have existed in the former Soviet Union, Cambodia and Bosnia. Despite differences, all had one thing in common: the people in power removed a minority group from the general population and the rest of society let it happen.

The WRA forced the inmates to learn how to be an American and live the way Americans did back then. A huge portion of the Inmates were drafted into the Military after being given a loyalty test. Many of the inmates that refused the test were placed in higher security facilities.

Of those imprisoned, 62 percent were second- or third-generation Japanese Americans born in the United States. Most lost their property to the government.

We allowed this to happen. The relocation of Japanese-Americans into internment camps during World War II was one of the most flagrant violations of civil liberties in American history.

“You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again,” U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told University of Hawaii students. “In times of war, the laws fall silent.”

REX 84 — Modern Day Martial Law

The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons. This idea was drafted in a Fema report in 1970, which proposed the detention of up to 21 million “American Negroes”, if there were a black militant uprising in the United States.

FBI’s Custodial Detention Index (CDI)

The Custodial Detention Index was a list of suspects and potential subversives, classified as “A”, “B” and “C”; the ones classified as “A” were destined to be immediately arrested and interned at the outbreak of war. Category A were leaders of Axis-related organizations, category B were members deemed “less dangerous” and category C were sympathizers.

J Edger Hoover quote:

"This division has now compiled extensive indices of individuals, groups, and organizations engaged in subversive activities, in espionage activities, or any activities that are possibly detrimental to the internal security of the United States. The Indexes have been arranged not only alphabetically but also geographically, so that at any rate, should we enter into the conflict abroad, we would be able to go into any of these communities and identify individuals or groups who might be a source of grave danger to the security of this country. These indexes will be extremely important and valuable in a grave emergency"

The program was run without Congress-approved legal authority, no judicial oversight and outside of the official legal boundaries of the FBI. A person against which an accusation was made was investigated and eventually placed on the index; it was not removed until the person died. Getting on the list was easy; getting off of it was virtually impossible.

Attorney General Francis Biddle, when he found out about the Index, labeled it “dangerous, illegal” and ordered its end. However, J. Edgar Hoover simply renamed it the Security Index, and told his people not to mention it.

Watch out for State of Emergency

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation.Isis recruiting is USA

This reminds me of all the propaganda of communism. We are being forced and shown only the negative sides of islam. This is separating us as a species.  Notice the same things Americans did to the Japanese

Could you imagine if the USA issued an internment of all Muslims because of the threats ISIS keeps making. The US people have been conditioned to dislike the muslim community due to 9/11. Many people I speak to about muslims are so undereducated and opinionated on them. Should an internment be ordered against muslims, I have my doubts it would even be stopped.  (Bloomberg article) — Almost half of all Americans think the federal government should limit the civil rights of Muslims as part of the nation’s fight against terrorism, according to a survey released by Cornell University today.

“Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, we are increasing in number," read the warning. "Of the 15 states, 5 we will name… Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan.” -- Purported warning from ISIS

This warning was issued via twitter on a ISIS propaganda account after the Curtis Culwell Center Attack May 3rd 2015

One of the men Elton Simpson had been under investigation before. May 2009, Simpson told an FBI informant, “I’m telling you, man, we can make it to the battlefield. It’s time to roll.” He was also recording saying, “If you get shot, or you get killed, it’s [heaven] straightaway… That’s what we here for … so why not take that route?”

In February, FBI Director James Comey said the FBI is investigating suspects with ties to ISIS in 49 states. The FBI is tracking pretty much everyone because of these threats. Snagging them up and sending them off for even wanting to join. Attempting to buy tickets to Syria seems to be the way to get busted as I read the news. 

Some questions we should be asking ourselves;

  • Where do these suspects end up?
  • Are special camps set-up for terrorists here in the United States?

Are you scared to drink Soda now?

Tons and tons of arrests are being made for connection with ISIS and we will never question it. It won’t be long before the Americans are begging for all Muslims to be in camps. Asking for some order to come out that protects the American people.

I would like to hear some feedback from your thoughts on this topic if you would like to share?

I Wish That from Shannyn Sossamon on Vimeo.

Oft seen playing the struggling ‘Susy’ Sweet, jamming behind a drum kit, or dancing whimsically in both uncontrollable and rhythmic fashion, Shannyn Sossamon, better known for her lead roles in the early 2000s films A Knight’s Tale and 40 Days and 40 Nights, created her Maudegone Theater online-video project in 2010 for reasons she can’t quite put her finger on.

“I didn’t know exactly what it was and then you start to do more things and it all kind of lines up,” she tells Hook and Line Magazine. But, perhaps we’ve got our hands on something quite special and eclectic.

Noting that she simply enjoys the feeling of independence and freedom within the creative process, she says the Maudegone “comes from a very strange place that’s not necessarily based in story as much as it is atmosphere and feeling and…
