|Mayor David Bowers longing for the good old days of Japanese internment camps|
Republicans are going off the richter scale when it come to xenophobia these days. They were in the scaredy pants red zone before but since the Russian plane bombing and the Paris attacks they have gone full on pant shitting pussy.
An example: Yesterday, Mayor David Bowers of Roanoke, Virginia issued a public statement that expressed his fear of Syrian refugees and then intimating that perhaps we need WW II style Japanese internment camp for them.
Here is the statement…
If you didn't catch it here is the truly vile and offensive paragraph…
"I’m reminded that President Franklin D. Roosevelt felt compelled to sequester Japanese foreign nationals after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and it appears that the threat of harm to America from Isis now is just as real and serious as that from our enemies now."
That's right... An elected public official has just advocated locking up widows and orphans fleeing their war torn countries for their lives.
This has been just one example of the GOP and right wing conservatives fear mongering and cowardice.
