Michele ‘crazy eyes’ Bachmann warns of link between census, Japanese internment

Via: TPM

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is taking her refusal to fully fill out her Census form, which is a crime punishable by a $5,000 fine, to a whole new level: Invoking the memory of the Japanese internment during World War II, and the evil role that the Census played in it!

During an interview this morning on Fox News, Bachmann mostly focused on the danger of her personal information falling into the hands of the dreaded menace ACORN. But at one point, she made a very interesting appeal to history:

“Take this into consideration. If we look at American history, between 1942 and 1947, the data that was collected by the Census Bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations at the request of President Roosevelt, and that’s how the Japanese were rounded up and put into the internment camps,” said Bachmann.I’m NOT saying that that’s what the Administration is planning to do, BUT I am saying that private personal information that was given to the Census Bureau in the 1940s was used against Americans to round them up, in a violation of their constitutional rights, and put the Japanese in internment camps.”

The Man Who Didn’t Salute Hitler (1936)

Via: All That Is Interesting

Joining the Nazi party purely in hopes of finding a job, German August Landmasser was eventually sentenced to two years at a labor camp for falling in love with a Jewish woman whom he tried to marry.

Love overrode the anti-semitism that swept throughout the country, though it wasn’t strong enough to save his would-be bride Irma Eckler.

Like so many others, Eckler’s life came to a tragic and premature end at a death camp.
