Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Course, he created no such thing. I don't need to go through a list with you again. But it was actually Franklin Roosevelt who created interment camps. And he saw a military order directing that one hundred twenty thousand Japanese Americans and Americans of Japanese descent were to be removed from their homes. Moved into these camps. Some are placed in Arizona some replaced where they were to be moved off the west coast. I want you to know some history. It's all very important because FDR is one of the favourite presidents of the left and the tenured historians who are professors. It usually is Washington Lincoln Lincoln, Washington. And of course, FDR sometimes they put after your first because he was the great progressive. One day. It'll be Obama. FDR was a racist. I'm not saying that to be provocative. So an excellent book written on this subject put out by Harvard gentleman by the name of Robinson by order of the president. Spend a lot of time reading history. And. He issued the order. The New York Times. So it was really kind of cool. Here's the headline from the New York Times. March twenty four thousand nine hundred forty two Japanese begin evacuation trek I caravan. They liked the word caravan of three hundred and fifty cars with one thousand leaves Los Angeles for Owens river valley. Listen to this sub headline good humor prevails. Government announced plans for colonization of twenty thousand in Arizona Indian reserve. This democrat party is amazing, isn't it? Now, that's not that long ago. Nineteen forty two. So I've been reading this book been reading scores of books over the last several weeks is I. Do my research. And they point this out does Robinson. This book is not a new book. It comes from the Harvard University press must be good, right? It's first copyright. Let's see here. I believe is a nineteen sixty six. Let me read you this. Too closely interrelated elements stand out strongly as determinative in the president's decision and his subsequent actions. One of these was undoubtedly Roosevelt's own negative beliefs about Japanese Americans.

They couldn't be assimilated whose presence was a source of both chronic irritation to their white American neighbors, I'm quoting and conflict with Japan. During the nineteen twenties. Even as FDR praised the Japanese government and called for closer relations between the two countries he publicly opposed any further immigration of the Japanese into the United States, he justified discriminatory legislation against Japanese aliens on the west coast. So means of preserving white, racial purity. This has been the history of the democrat party slavery. Segregation, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt. Yes. I know. I'm I'm I'm telling you the truth. You don't hear these things? A low FDR did not consider people of Japanese ancestry racially inferior in is a few. They were a biologically distinct people when innately incapable of adapting to American society are becoming true Americans. This is your democrat party. This is your great FDR. He argued that they needed to be kept apart, and he considered anti-japanese nativist sentiment reasonable and just. The president's inability. This goes to immigration, his inability to conceive of people of Japanese ancestry as true Americans contributed to his failure to intervene to protect their liberty and property rights in the face of public hysteria.
