    The racist President Roosevelt interned Americans of Japanese heritage in prison camps...should his statue be taken down?

    Internment of Japanese Americans - Wikipedia

    The internment of Japanese Americans in the United States during World War II was the forced relocation and incarceration in camps in the western interior of the country of between 110,000 and 120,000[5] people of Japanese ancestry, most of whom lived on the Pacific coast. 62 percent of the internees were United States citizens.[6][7]

    These actions were ordered by President Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Imperial Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor.[8]

    Japanese Americans were incarcerated based on local population concentrations and regional politics. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans in the mainland U.S., who mostly lived on the West Coast, were forced into interior camps.

    However, in Hawaii, where 150,000-plus Japanese Americans composed over one-third of the population, only 1,200 to 1,800 were also interned.[9] The internment is considered to have resulted more from racism than from any security risk posed by Japanese Americans.[10][11] Those who were as little as 1/16 Japanese[12] and orphaned infants with "one drop of Japanese blood" were placed in internment camps.[13]

    Let's destroy everything we don't like, let's tear down statues, burn books lets and put out death decrees on apostates and stone non- believers to death. Woops, that's Either Nazis or Islam sorry. I confuse liberals brand of hate with them, ignore me. It's getting hard to tell liberals and the fascist apart anymore. Silly me.

    Communists do it too...all of the socialist systems do it when they take power....remember, when the communists murdered the Tsar, they got rid of his body and his wife and children's bodies so they could wipe away his memory...

    You poor snowflakes. Let us know when you can address what a liberal actually says. As it is, you're just proving that you're too chickenshit to address what liberals actually say.

    Maybe. At the very least that needs brought up, alot.
    Trouble is 46% of Americans or whatever huge minority voted for Trump support the travel ban.
    Heck, we have bigger problems here, streets are named after Charles Lindbergh

    Don't forget the ship of Jews that were fleeing the Nazi's that Roosevelt ordered returned to Germany to face certain death.

    Repulsive as that was, it's history. And no historical fact should be destroyed. Neither by burning books or destroying statues.
