    “From the very beginning of the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons.” President Potatohead, on the 2nd Amendment.

    So, WHO were these “certain people” from the very beginning?

    Blacks? Native Americans? Illegal Immigrants?

    Sure sounds like racist dog whistle code words to the Democrats!

    Why not? He’s a Democrat and it was a Democratic President and a Democratic controlled congress that put Japanese Americans in internment camps.

    It's ironic.
    I had three great uncles who all flew P38 lightnings. The trio were German-American pilots. (Aces) They flew in the Pacific.
    Japanese Americans SHOULD have been allowed to volunteer to fight Germans or at least support the war.

    Inevitability strikes again. Amazing how history does have a way of repeating itself.

    In spite of this forced incarceration and rampant wartime prejudice, more than 33,000 second-generation Japanese Americans (nisei) volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army during World War II. Of those, 19,000 served in the 100th Infantry Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service, where they proved their loyalty to America and became the most decorated unit of its size in U.S. military history.

    They were towards the middle/end of the war. They were only allowed in the European theater though. 442nd Infantry I believe.

    Edit: @AZ Draht beat me to it.

    My favorite class in college was a ww2 class taught by a Second gen Japanese American. He wrote a book on the Nisei soldiers.

    Because the general human condition of avarice and greed is a constant.

    Avarice being a more refined version of greed.

    Fear is about the only thing that organizes us.

    IMO
