A CASE for RADICAL
|Branding an African slave woman|
In the responses to this week's post by Mr. Bill Ducky in his usual dismissive fashion sneered at the very idea that our government under the auspices of FEMA could possibly have built upwards of eight-hundred Internment Centers or Concentration Camps disguised as Emergency Relief Centers.
FJ-Thersites quickly responded with several links clearly demonstrating that not only was our government capable of implementing such a policy it had already done so several times in the past, and proceeded to quote chapter and verse.
I thought it was important to present a synthesis of the information FY-Thersites provided –– not for the petty reason of retaliating against Ducky –– but to show how low the forces of government can stoop, and how evil they can be when permitted to run amok.
The following also lends greater credibility to the notion that President Obama, given the radical anti-American, pro-Communist conditioning he received in childhood and beyond, might well consider it his “Sacred Duty” to do everything in his power to destroy what historical revisionists have told him are the White Man’s Ill-Gotten Gains.
The Mississippi Flood of 1927:
Negroes, because they comprise 75% of the population in the delta lowlands and furnish 95% of the labor power on the plantations and farms, where they operate as tenants, share croppers and small owners, constituted the human factor most affected.

The Capture, Imprisonment and Quasi-Genocidal Treatment by American Soldiers of the Apaches at Fort Pickens and Fort Marion:
On the morning of October 25, 1886 a train pulled into Pensacola, Florida. Onboard were 16 Apache men (in photo), some of their families and U.S. soldiers. Under guard, the Apache men were separated from their wives and children and forced onto a steamer for the short trip across Pensacola Bay to Fort Pickens.
Their wives and children remained on the train, and were taken to Fort Marion in St. Augustine, where 400 other Chiricahua and Warm Springs Apaches were imprisoned.
Goyahkla, known as Geronimo, and Naiche, the youngest son of Cochise and hereditary chief of the Chiricahuas, were among the Apaches held at Fort Pickens until 1888. The Apache men were separated from their families far from home, and worried about the fate of their loved ones. ..."
