Could this be what the "FEMA" camps that have been discussed and reported on will be used for? Who would be targeted in "a time of war"? You would assume that would mean immigrants from the countries we are facing at war but I'm not so sure that would be it.

I would fear that anyone that opposes such a war as well as a host of others including constitutionalists and the like.

Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.


"You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again," Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.

The local Associated Press report quotes Scalia as using a Latin phrase that means "in times of war, the laws fall silent," to explain why the court erred in that decision and will do so again.

"That's what was going on — the panic about the war and the invasion of the Pacific and whatnot," Scalia said. "That's what happens. It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again, in time of war. It's no justification but it is the reality."

Seeing how the people that backed Hitler and turned Germany into Nazi Germany have infested our government it is perfectly reasonable that this could happen. After all the elite wants to get rid of the useless eaters who are using up their natural resources.

I wonder if we have time to pack?

And what war?

When?

Who's going to be president???

Finally, will I have time to watch the season finale of Walking Dead?

Well, I don't know...if they can herd up everyone connected to Islam, radical or not, I'd probably turn a blind eye.


Even in peace time...but that's just me.

I do not think war is a requirement for concentration camps. When the economy flatlines, camps will be everywhere. FEMA, DHS, Red Cross, Wal-Mart, etc. Seriously, Wal-Mart will be involved, you bet. So, since war is not the prerequisite, rather, internal strife and/or revolt, I would guess we will see some form of "camp" in the decade, and Congress will not be silent, they will applaude them as they pass. As for inhumane treatment, of American citizens or illegals, green cards, work visas, etc., that is where the SC will remain silent, so to speak.

What I would be concerned about folks is what sort of a war would need to occur to re-establish internment camps in the US?

Americas next war will start from within.

"Department of Homeland Security" - sort of has a Nazi ring to it, don't you think?

Yes, because locking up innocent Japaneze was so successful.

Disgraceful to even consider building these things.

Unless, we use them on the people that built them.

In a time of war, the law falls silent. That is sacrilege coming from a Judge sitting on the supreme court. IMO he should be impeached. Not in this lawless, immoral place though.

The Fascists own the US and behind them are WASP authoritarians that would line up to defecate on the Constitution and/or the bible for their own gain at the drop of a hat. i.e. camps are fine if it's someone I don't like.

The moral fiber breaks down to some evil pieces doesn't it?

We don't have a war, one that we can see anyway, but the laws sure seem to have fallen silent.

I agree with your sentiment but I think you're missing the point. The point being these would be here in the United States.

This is the part that bothers me most. HE has been the biggest influence on the rulings to come out of the SC for well over the last twenty years...
The Supreme Court of this land has become as rife with corruption as the rest of our government. Just look at Scalia's stance on campaign financing. Nothing but a mouth suckling at the plutocrats' teats. Om. Nom. Nom.

The War will not start from within. Remember the SC said the Patriot Act, Bush's wiretaps, and if it makes it there I'm sure they will say NSA =A-OK

Go look at how he voted or what his stance was.
Fun times.
This whole thing stinks. We are the only country to (supposedly) freely elect the former head OF OUR SECRET POLICE AS PRESIDENT!!!
Really?!?
Yup.

law really doesn't have much of a place in war besides the "normal" things like don't treat the enemy and locals like your own personal entertainment (use your imagination)

Times of war/ Times of Fear/ Times of Financial Crisis/ Times of Famine/ Times of drought.....so forth and so on.
All of the above will lead the general public to slaughter.
During times of Bliss/Happiness/Well Being the above cannot happen.
Its all Manipulation by the few put upon the masses.

A good read is "The Gift Of Fear" Authored by Gavin Debecker.
It was recommended to me in a thread here about two years ago and I sure am glad I read it.

Yeah it can a fact all us gun owners are all too aware of.

I have read a lot of things on the Internet and in my opinion this is just about the most deplorable, disgusting thing I have ever read on the Internet. Sorry to see it here on ATS.

Those camps weren't built on a whim. They were built for a reason. The reason is the internment of Americans. Scared yet?

But Neo,

Doesn't the Fed and the government determine wealth through fiat currency?
Rich people have nothing to fear then since they are the true backers of their wealth through fiat currency.

Nope PEOPLE do.

People determine their wealth (self worth) by how ever many zeros are on their checks, or by how ever many zeros are on there government check.

It is called dogma that spreads to hate, and fear that led to interment camps.

Doesn't matter the reason it's happened before, and the people today are no different than then.
