Justice Scalia warns WWII-style internment camps could return

Is America about to witness a frightening instance of history repeating itself? According to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, maybe. During a speech at the University of Hawaii on Monday, Justice Scalia warned the Supreme Court could approve a wartime violation of civil rights like it did in allowing internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.

The Supreme Court’s 1944 decision in Korematsu v. United States upheld the convictions of Gordon Hirabayashi and Fred Korematsu for violating orders to report to an internment camp. While Scalia said the Supreme Court was wrong to uphold the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, something similar could easily happen during a future conflict.

“Well of course Korematsu was wrong. And I think we have repudiated in a later case,” he said. “But you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.”

Glenn has long spoken about the importance of Americans being aware of and familiar with the tragedies and massacres that have been orchestrated by the United States government in order to ensure history (like internment camps) does not repeat itself. His newest book, Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America deals with that very theme.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Excuse me? Excuse me? Now, this is the case that we make in Miracles and Massacres. In fact, he used the Latin ‘In times of war the laws are silent.’ That’s the name of one of the chapters in Miracles and Massacres… In the book we said, ‘We’ve got to learn from this because we’re about to repeat it again.’ And we gave evidence… We’re starting to do it again,” Glenn said. “And I know when I say it, it’s crazy. And I’m sure because Scalia is crazy and a warmonger or whatever he is, I’m sure it’s going to be called crazy too. But does it not wake anybody new up?”

The danger Justice Scalia discusses is not simply a big government, progressive problem; it is an inherent problem with human nature. Whether you look back in history to the slavery debate and Manifest Destiny or look at today’s conversations about abortion, human nature hasn’t changed.

“[It’s the feeling of] ‘we know we’re right, and if you don’t agree with us, there’s no place for you.’ That’s why Scalia is saying it’s going to happen again. Because human nature doesn’t change. I’m sorry. The progressives are wrong. Man does not progress,” Glenn said. “Every human starts with the same problems, the same flaws. We don’t progress past that. We have that in our basic nature. And it is for each individual to conquer that. And so you have to conquer it over and over and over and over again.”

    Scalia is only verbalizing history. All men would be tyrants as Abigail Adams told her husband.

    • William Henry Bowen

      It was in 1798, just a few years after the Constitution went into effect, that many of our Founding Fathers, INCLUDING John Adams, enacted the “Alien & Sedition Acts”, which actually criminialized dissent. I think this evil law is one reason Mrs. Adams made that statement. BTW, one part of that set of laws is still part of the United States Code (50 USC Sections 21–24).

        Internment was a response to a total war, and it was reasonable given the circumstances, although clumsy. The Japanese had a coordinated attack at Pearl Harbor as Hawaiian Japanese sabotaged an entire line of P40s at Hickam Field by driving trucks over their tails. Those P40s could have minimized the damage during the attack. Manzanar was a sad story but so was Warsaw, Auschwitz, Stalingrad and Hiroshima; I don’t feel the need to apologize.

        Actually she told John “Don’t forget the ladies”. I think that was before the constitution was signed but I could be wrong.

        I agree. Check out the coming 4 blood moons. The first one happens to be a major Jewish holiday, the Feast of Trumpets. The Bible says the first trumpet blows and the dead in Christ arise, then the rest of the church. Yippee!

        • Anonymous

          1st blood moon is Passover, second one is Feast of Tabernacles. Then there’s a total solar eclipse on Nissan 1. That is followed by 2 more blood moons, one on Passover and one on Tabernacles. This has only happened 3 times in the last 500 years-the tetrad beginning April 2014 will be the 4th time. Oh yeah, something is going down-maybe Psalm 83, followed by Ezekiel 38 & 39.

          • http://www.speakthewordnow.com/ Karen Rose

            Yes, trying to force Israel to sign away land letting the enemy in. Every time a blood moon came about, something big was going on with Israel and the Jewish people.

        • Theresa

          actually they’re not .. they’re put out by another religious group..and honestly it doesn’t matter which one. What is so wrong with existing with someone who may have different belief’s than you do? o.0 ..I could care less If you believe in not eating pork or don’t believe in Jesus.. you follow the teachings of Moses than you follow God’s teachings.. and even If you don’t believe in God if you live your life trying your hardest to do good than you must be aware of God in some way ..and you’ll recognize Him when the time comes to do so because you’ll recognize the Love you’ve been sharing His Love..But you totally missed the point. The whole video was about not being pitted against one another ..and look at us.. because you wanted to pick apart the Muslims you’ve stirred up my not so pleasant emotions and already you and I are in a sense pitted against one another, and there are people reading this some siding with you and some siding with me.. and those people are inadvertently being pitted on some level against one another.. and what this entire video was about is for us to stop.. and to co-exist …it’s about me accepting you and living next to you in peace and love and tranquility and not caring which path you chose to follow as long as you don’t harm anyone else as long as you are living for your own growth and not for others’ destruction.. and FYI Muslim’s are nice people for the most part and when they’re not .. they’re no different than you with your impression that another believe is inferior to yours …If I told you I was Jewish you might hear the words I’ve posted..If I told you I was a christian you would ignore my words and convince yourself that I was wrong in every way If I told you I were Muslim you’d say I was conspiring against you ..and None of these things matter …I am Human just like you I have my beliefs just like you …I believe in Peace and tranquility and Love and acceptance …and I would live right next to you and be kind and polite and lend you sugar or an egg if you needed it ..I would let you get warm next to my fire and help you change a tire if you had a flat I would co-exist with any member of the Human Race because when it comes down to it..we were all created from the same dust and we are all part of one race It’s time for Humanity to rise up as a whole and refuse to be pitted against one another …because being divided means being conquered. I refuse to fight you…please refuse to fight me too

          • Theresa

            I believe no person truly wants killing and war and has that much hatred ..I believe no one is born incorrigible..I think this nations people is lead to believe Islamics are hateful and war mongering Maybe it’s all true ..but this nation also wants us to believe the world trade towers were brought down by planes and not demolition detonators ..and the 7th building came down the same exact way even though no planes hit it …we’re to believe it just collapsed due to the shaking of the ground caused by the other buildings collapsing …. o.0 ..I don’t know maybe I’m wrong to be a little skeptical of what I’m told to believe, because my government will protect me if I follow them blindly …but this isn’t the point of the video either …I’m sure there are people who will appose the idea of buddying up to someone they don’t like ..and I have some people I don’t want to be friendly with in my life as well.. but that doesn’t mean we can’t all live together on the same planet.. peacefully …no matter what background we come from we all admire people like Gandhi and we all agree that war doesn’t solve problems.. this doesn’t mean neighbors won’t argue and ex-spouses won’t fight over property and children …it just means that we are all evolved enough to know that bombing the hell out of another country and killing innocent families because we don’t agree with the other country’s governments and laws, is not going to solve anything… It’s like rearing a child ..you can teach them by hitting them and they will grow to fear you and resent you… and maybe there will be peace in the future when they are an adult… or you can teach by setting an example and asking them questions so that they come up with answers themselves and choose to do the right thing on their own and have better self esteem and appreciate you when they become adults… or…I don’t know my kids not listening to me lets bomb the hell out of him and make him listen…my child told me he hates me and threw his shoe at me…maybe stoning him to death will teach him a lesson … seriously .. no one thinks like this..regardless what we are lead to believe of other nations none of them believe war will solve problems the news shows us what they want us to see… he who controls the media controls the people… …people will unite and refuse to fight, refuse to go to war ..not all of them maybe… but most of them and that’s what Glennbeck is talking about here..

            nice sentiment- but not very realistic. The world does not see through rose colored glasses and it’s time we face that fact- and treat it as it is- we have a real battle on our hands.
            The radical Islamics/Muslims of the world believe they are right and cannot coexist with those that do not agree with them.

          • Theresa

            I can tell you love your country and support it wholeheartedly, …and I do as well…but I don’t always support the way my country is run and I think we can agree on that as well…it’s always good to gather all information from all sorts of resources and all sides before making a determination on what to believe…seeking out truth and justice is a birthright it’s what our nation was founded on… and our government isn’t the same as it was back then when the American flag stood for something real and wasn’t just a symbol of what used to be
            ..I think one can argue that those who truly believe their government (any government, not just ours) when they are told war is the only way …and don’t see that there’s a profit in it.. and possibly a second agenda to war than what “the people” are being told,.. are truly the ones wearing the rose colored glasses ..being blinded to the real reasons behind bombing a nation… like control of oil which is the same reason Stanley Meyers invention was suppressed.. If you like to read I think you could really appreciate the book Crossing the Rubicon by Micheal Ruppert a retired Police chief who was engaged to the head of the CIA for a time..a real inside view with printed documented proof of his claims ..I believe it’s when people can see without those rose colored glasses they will see that going to war will not beget peace …peace will beget peace

        I come from a family of hunters – isn’t anyone else concerned about the absence of “available ammunition”? DHS? If a revolution occurs, could Martial law be declared, and elections, usual gov’t activities – be DELAYED?

        • Geronimo

          Well, buy when you can. It is tougher for high power long range rifles because if you shoot a lot you want a case lot at least, accuracy issues, point of impact at 500 or 600 meters can be significant if you buy different lot numbers of same ammo. Buffalo Bore at Midway was stocked up, I had all my backorders of 45-70, .44 and 45 colt +P magnums filled months ago. Acedemy sports has CASES of 12 gauge hornady “ZOMBIE” buckshot, 1600 fps , some hard hitting stuff available now. Whenever I go to wallyworld I buy .44 magnum Winchester USA brand in 50 round boxes when they have it, it is dirty ammo but cheap and good enough to ring gongs at 150 yards. I have at least 25 boxes of those. You buy a box or two a month and it adds up. These are the calibers I shoot with, 12 gauge shotgun , 45-70 and .44 lever guns and a .45 colt handgun. I have cases and cases of ammo, all since the “scare”. You just always walk past the sports department and when they have it buy it.
          I also have highpower slingshots, I can drop a moose with them. I have one set up with doublebands and an arrow rest, it sends arrows through a 2×4 ( point of broadhead will be sticking out other side). There are also blowguns, COLD STEEL .625 magnum is one heck of a weapon for small game. With a little practice a squirrel or rabbit within 15 yards can easily become dinner. I also have pcp air rifles, My favorite is a talon SS with multiple barrels (you can change calibers in minutes). That gun is LETHAL. I can easily shoot a squirrel in the eyeball at 50 yards. Heavy eun jin .22 are available that are 33 grains, they drop coyotes at that distance if hit between the eyes, it does penetrate the skull and rattle the critters brains pretty good.
          If revolution occurs, the best thing would be to have a small group of friends or relatives and each have a bugout kit and have a predestined meeting place out in the middle of nowhere. You can plan supplies for the whole group that way. So you would have a greater variety of supplies. You wouldn’t need 6 Coleman stoves for example if a party of 6 vehicles was in your group. Keep the group small, 10-12 people.
          If this thing does go civil war, small groups will become larger groups, we’ll meet in the field. And we have the moral high ground, and we’ll drive the bastards into the sea. We don’t get through any of this without God. You have to use your head too, improvise.
          When martial law gets declared, WHAT MARTIAL LAW, go to hell D.C. its on.

    Everybody has heard about the Japanese interment camps in WWII, but only a tiny few Americans know about the INTERMENT OF ETHINC GERMAN AND ITALIAN AMERICANS. Michelle Malkin wrote an excellent article about this. It is enlightening to know that in 1949, long after the Japanese interment camps were closed, German and Italian Americans were still being detained, in of all places, ELLIS ISLAND. This little piece of history is ignored because it would undermine the effort to promote guilt among Americans because of the Japanese interment camps. Almost everybody thinks that ONLY THE JAPANESE WERE INTERRED. The Japanese got monetary reparations for their interment; THE GERMANS AND ITALLIANS NEVER GOT A DIME OF COMPENSATION FOR THEIR PERIOD OF INTERMENTS.

    ‘…we know we’re right, and if you don’t agree with us, there’s no place for you” HHHMMMM… Sound like anyone recently? Oh Yeah! Maybe just the governor of New York, no one of any real authority, power or importance.

    • EHattSwank

      Or perhaps … sounds like Glenn Beck, when he has repeatedly told people who do not think like him that they are not welcome in Texas. And what about Beck’s nobody-but-conservatives-allowed paradise city, “Independence USA”?

  • Mark Ervin

    There will always be someone that wants to take what another has. There will always be someone that wants to be more powerful. There will always be those that want to enforce their views over others. Man is flawed and this is why the utopian fantasy world will never happen. Stop idolizing other men as they are as flawed as you and never surrender your freedom.

    • AnneCameo

      Yes, mankind, has not changed. But, our society has. It’s why laws and rules are necessary, and need to be enforced. If one wants to make an informed decision – effort has to be taken to research/learn. People respond best with “motivation”, and pride/success grows with each success. Consequences and punishments ARE necessary. And, part of the reason the boss gets the higher pay? Someone has to be the bad guy, someone has to do what’s right, as with parenting; (I don’t mean violence) you have to give consequences/teach and sometimes punish, even if the child isn’t “happy” with you, it’s the “hard” part of the job. Always ask yourself, “what is best for the child”? It is SELF-RESPONSIBILITY – not a popular Lib ideal.

    Let’s make sure that the Obamas are the first internees. Then follow with all the traioter demos and rinos. That should fill them up.

    Progressives: Are communists, liberals ,leftists and anti Americans. I escaped from a Soviet country in 1950 and they had nice names for how we were suffering. History always repeats itself. I don’t want to escape again, I’m 74 years old, please, please don’t vote for a democrat. Please, save this wonderful country.

  • Brooke Lorren

    One of the reasons why I’ve been considering leaving this country for years… if we ever get the means to go (and figure out where to go). I’m probably on the internment camp list…

      Been thinkin about that too lately but where to go?? Canada? same Rotten Healthcare, ad PC Speech Nazis. England? see Canada plus Muslims are taking over, And on and on etc. We have to take back our Country

      there is nowhere else to go, stand and fight don’t be a coward.

      • AnneCameo

        As forefathers fought and died, preserving this country for our generation. I believe we have the same responsibility, for our next generations. A simple first step: MAKE CERTAIN YOU VOTE, AND TRY TO GET INFORMED; IN EVERY ELECTION. Too many conservatives failed to even go to the polls in 2012. Maybe Romney wasn’t their choice – although I liked him – by not voting – we got the Liar-in-Chief. 11/2014 we have a chance/obligation.

        • ken.

          when people don’t show up to vote in the primaries we are stuck with rino’s who are just as bad and even worse then democrats. then everyone complains about how they won’t vote for a rino so they don’t show up to vote in the main election. we need to push everyone to show up for the primaries because they are more important then the main election.

      • AnneCameo

        Also, “leaving the country”? It’s what’s happened in Mexico. They should stay and fight for their country. As they move to the U.S., the cancer has spread. Cartels, crime, drug, etc. doesn’t STOP at the border, if not stomped out, it grows/expands.

        • ken.

          exactly, i go out of my way to call out hispanics for being cowards and running away like sissies letting their country be destroyed instead of staying home and fighting to save their homeland and give themselves a better life. they all talk about how mexico or where ever else their from is so great, but they run away from home like children because the truth is their homeland sucks. they always talk about how proud they are but it’s an act to try to convince us and themselves how great they are.

  • NoGuff

    “Domestic Tranquility” could mean anything. It could mean imprisoning dissenters because they’re making the President’s job of pushing through his agenda too difficult.

    • AnneCameo

      One reason that I’m not willing to label Snowden as “guilty”, without a trial. It would be smart for any individual, who may be singled out by the Obama regime; to not return to this country or seek refuge in some other country.

      I’m surprised how willing so many are to convict him, without a trial? Unless, there is a lot of documentation from Snowden that says so, that I’m not aware of.

      • NoGuff

        Well, there’s no doubt he took & revealed documents he wasn’t supposed to. He admitted it. So a trial is just going to show what he’s guilty of doing. What is relevant is the whistle blower’s law and how it will affect the outcome. Personally, I believe he revealed wrong-doing by our government, and so that’s why they want him in custody.

  • Jason

    This is something that I wrote some years back. Looks like I was more right than I thought.

    A Reaffirmation Of Our Declaration Of Independence

    When the rights of the individual man and woman are being subjugated by the so called good of the collective, we must then reexamine our liberties and rights as to the effect that they must be protected, as was given to us in the Declaration of Independence and the amendments in the Constitution.

    When in the course of performing our duties as citizens, we must be reminded that at the end of the day we are our own people and we will not be
    subjected to the dictates of a governmental body, whose only end is power for
    the sake of power.

    However challenging that may be, we are endowed by our Creator, those rights to be free and unshackled by the chains of a minority, who have, at the core of their being, considered themselves to become that of a god.

    We now hold certain truths, that in our lives and according to our Creator, we are to pursue that which is good and proper, not that of any governing
    body, which may attempt to dictate to us the manner in which we may obtain subsistence for ourselves.

    We are to be, by nature, free from the constraints of a body that will submit a population into desolation and destruction and eventual slavery.
    When we constrain the freedom of conscience, we disallow the freedom of
    thought, and enslave the mind of man. When such designs on the people
    are made, the attempt, by a mischievous governmental body, either by its leader
    (the President) or by its officers (Czars and or regulators) will be made to draw all sustenance unto itself in an effort to become a means to an end; and the
    end that it desires, is to leave no room for other power to be had.

    Freedom of conscience and freedom
    of thought, that is the basis for a truly free society. Our constitution listed as the
    first amendment the freedom of Religion, speech and of the press; lest our conscience and our liberties be put in jeopardy, by a body that has evil designs
    toward them.

    We are now seeing an erosion of
    our very basic liberties by men who have neither conscience nor morality, only
    that of what they would justify to give them power for the sake of power. Truly a challenge has been issued to “We The People,” to test our resolve to
    govern ourselves and live according to our created conscience, not only of
    that, but to test our strength to back up those thoughts with speech and actions.

    To love liberty is more than a
    platitude, it is the very drive of any free nation, the ethos of a people who
    are willing to defend said freedoms in conscience, word and deeds, not to submit ourselves to the whims or fashions of the time. Freedom is like the created universe, endless in its bounty, grace and potential. That is why as a created being you must exercise due diligence in protecting your conscience, thoughts and deeds, to prove them worthy of the highest and lofty goals; that is what we were created for: to renounce the slavery of thought, and conscience; to commit to that which is good and decent, in both word and deed.

    In the end, we are ultimately responsible for every free person to remain free, or we shall not be judged as being worthy to continue in a free
    state. We are that barrier between freedom and the abyss of tyranny,
    enslavement and death.

    We will either live to free all men or we will die indentured and worthless; our end will be the trash heap of the history of man.

    Therefore we have no other
    alternative but to follow the dictates of a free heart and to defend freedom
    and liberty, not as a cliché nor as a platitude,
    but that which gives us the very life that flows through our hearts, mind,
    soul, and the blood that is in our veins, for which
    so many before us have given so freely, to prove that freedom is the means to
    any good and justified ends: as freedom is the ultimate goal of all mankind.

    I am sure I will be among the first who will offered re-education or be killed for writing this. I have shown my indifference to the collective mindset and a police state.

    That is as much as I dare to put in.

      Thank you, such beautiful words, which some “downers” may claim as “only words”; but words are ideas, a place to start, and we have only to put them into action.

    Glenn is a bit “off” concerning the Rev War. We might not have punished the British but we sure punished the Tories who supported the British (I personally had no problem with that as those “Americans” who supported the British got kicked out of America as they were traitors to the United States of America.

    What are all those caskets FEMA has everywhere for? What do we need detention camps for? We have too many prisons now. If pot is legal in some states will those in jail for pot be released since it is now legal? I personally will never take a chip in my body, that is too much control over me, this country is suppose to be a free country.
    God was a big part of the creation of it. If you don’t like God then just do your own thing and let the rest of us believe in Jesus and God and the constitution. Glenn Tell the public about those coffins and camps please. WARN WARN WARN

  • KittyKittyKit

    It will happen soooooo FAST it will make your head spin, once they set the full plan in motion.

    Here’s our LAST chance, American Patriots, because it is the Patriots they plan to inter and vaporize. We can still stop it……pass this on.

    Picture this for a moment.

    I have a “comb” that has 74 teeth in it.

    Counting each tooth to represent 1.16 MILLION legal American Citizens, consider the following.

    Using the first two teeth, on the left, their sum total is 2.32 Million American Citizens who make up the entire population of America’s Active Military Forces, ALL police officers, and ALL top echelon Public Officials. (includes the POTUS, Congress, all Governors, State Representatives, Mayors, and Community officials)

    The remaining 72 teeth add up to a total of 83.5 MILLION, Constitutionally LEGAL, American Citizens, who “legally” own guns.

    We the People, are allowing 1/10 th. of 1 tooth, (the politicians) backed by 1- 9/10 teeth (all armed military and police), to THREATEN and BULLY, 72 teeth (American armed citizens) into surrendering their RIGHTS under the Constitution, and they are OPENLY, and ACTIVELY engaged in the OVERTHROW of the United States Constitution, TO OUR FACE!!!

    This PUNY force of arrogant, CITIZENS, actually believe they are the MAJORITY force and power, and are answerable to no one, especially the “private sector” CITIZENS and PATRIOTS that write their paychecks.

    Note this……….EVERY YEAR, the 83.5 MILLION citizens in the Private Sector, become the LARGEST armed military force in the WORLD.

    This happens on OPENING DAY of “hunting season” across America, when 83.5 MILLION HUNTERS step out of their houses, into the public, fully armed, with their guns loaded, and head into the fields and woods for a two week hunting period.

    There are NO REPORTS of mass shootings or homicides or an inordinate amount of “accidents” involving OUR GUNS during that two week period, EVER. We are Americans. We have been raised and trained how to use and handle guns SAFELY from our youth to old age. WE ARE TRUSTWORTHY to keep and bear arms, as our Founding Fathers knew.

    Are we going to let a MEASELY 1/10th of 1 tooth, (the politicians) to continue to dismantle the United States Constitution at EVERY LEVEL of government, when they have SWORN an Oath to “protect and defend” the very constitution they are actively engaged in destroying???

    OR…are WE THE PEOPLE going to strap on our LEGALLY owned guns, and armed with the BILL OF RIGHTS,( which have NEVER been repealed), MARCH down to our LOCAL government and City Counsel meetings, and DEMAND of our ELECTED officials, to STAND UP, one by one, and openly declare their own PERSONAL position on the American Citizens RIGHT to keep and bear arms, and to wear them in ALL PUBLIC VENUES, and to state, YES or NO, on whether or not ANY of the first 10 amendments to the constitution have been repealed.

    If the INDIVIDUAL answers in FULL SUPPORT of the Constitution, he/she retains their job.

    If the INDIVIDUAL answers AGAINST the Constitution and in favor of the continued Usurpation and Overthrow of our constitution through LAWS and ORDINANCES depriving the CITIZENS their constitutional RIGHTS, and ordering the local police forces to ENFORCE these laws, then that person is to be placed under CITIZENS ARREST for PERJURY, for LYING under their oath, stripped of his/her position of public office, and punished under the laws of perjury of the State, and an interim supporter of the Constitution is to be temporarily installed until new elections can be held to fill the seat.

    All Police officers are to be questioned in the same manner.

    We can STOP THIS MADNESS without having to fire a single SHOT, if WE THE PEOPLE, will simply put on our guns, and NEVER take them off again, and go to our town meetings, DEMANDING IMMEDIATE CHANGE, and the INSTANT REPEAL of all LOCAL laws contrary to the Constitution, and declaring such laws as UN-LAWFUL ORDERS only, and NO PERSON, public or private, is required to obey or follow an unlawful order.

    CLAIM YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGAIN, PATRIOTS and the State and Federal officials HAVE NO POWER to continue overthrowing us.

    THEN march on your State Capitals, demanding the same. KICKING OUT OF OFFICE, immediately, those who have perjured themselves. THEN we march on Washington D.C. and take back the Capitol.

    It’s a PIECE OF CAKE, patriots, and the PUNY 2 teeth are absolutely CRAZY if they decide they want to start shooting at us.

    Its time for WE THE PEOPLE to put a stop to all of this NONSENSE, and we can do it.

    NO LATER than Opening Day of hunting season, 2014, America………..PUT YOUR GUNS ON, and NEVER TAKE THEM OFF AGAIN.

    We can have our nation BACK TO IT’S ROOTS in less than 60 days, and ALL of OUR actions, are Constitutionally LEGAL .

    It’s once again time that the public officials, and police, FEAR the CITIZENS instead of the citizens fearing the politicians and police.

    An armed American citizenry is a FREE American citizenry.

    What say you……America??

    It is a truth that most of the tea party are not TEA BAGGERS. Then why do the leftists/ liberals/democrats (or whatever they chose to call themselves today) that claim to agree with the total GAY AGENDA think they are demeaning non-gay by calling them the name of a GAY ACT?

    Glenn Beck mocked and ridiculed Alex Jones for talking about Fema Camps. That’s why we watch infowars.com

  • Demosthenes Cicero

    Yeah. Glenn Beck is an ignorant fraud (fitting because Americans are overwhelmingly ignorant morons). By the way, Cicero was not lamenting the nature of laws as it applies to arms/ combat and government. He was making a statement about a man’s right to self defense. He was justifying Milo’s actions (killing Clodius) via self defense. Infowars.com

    Translated version
    For laws are silent when arms are raised, and do not expect themselves to be waited for, when he who waits will have to suffer an undeserved penalty before he can exact a merited punishment. Milo Section 11.
