Japanese Internment Camps


Executive Order 9066 was a United States presidential executive order signed and issued during WWII, on February 19th 1942, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This order authorized the Secretary of War to designate specific U.S. territory as military zones, clearing the way for the internment of approximately 120,000 Japanese Americans. Others detained in these camps include German and Italian Americans.

In Washington and Oregon, the eastern boundary of the military zone was a demarcation line drawn threw the rim of the Cascade Mountains. This line also covered the entire state of California.

Roosevelt’s order affected Japanese descents, two-thirds of whom were native-born citizens of the U.S. Within weeks, all persons of Japanese ancestry located within U.S. territories, whether citizens or suspected enemy combatants, young or old, rich or poor, were ordered to assembly centers near their homes. With little notice the Japanese Americans had to sell all they owned, and board up the businesses they operated. Soon they were sent to permanent relocation centers outside the restricted military zones. Most would never obtain their property back again.

Four or five families with barely any possessions were forced to share barracks in desert wasteland. Life as the Japanese Americans had known was now far behind them. Though their children were permitted to attend school, the Japanese labored for war purposes just as the Jews, and other undesirables had throughout Europe, including Germany and Poland. Japanese who had attempted to escape, or became combative about being detained were sent to a high security camp located at Tule Lake, in California.

In 1943 and 1944 the government assembled the 442d Regimental Combat Team, which consisted of Japanese Americans who were sent to Europe to fight for the Allies. This unit gained fame as the most highly decorated of World War II. Their military record proved their patriotism.

As the war drew to a close, the relocation centers were evacuated. While some of Japanese ancestry returned to their home towns, others due to race hatred, sought new environments. Of the Japanese American community of Tacoma, Washington only 30 percent returned to Tacoma after the war. Japanese Americans from Fresno relocated to Manzanar, and 80% returned to Japan. Some returned to their farmlands only to discover they had been sold by the U.S. government to new owners that obtained legal title. Others returned to destroyed homes, with hate crimes painted on them, such as NO JAPS ALLOWED.

The internment of persons of Japanese ancestry during World War II sparked constitutional and political debate. In the 1940s, two men and one woman, including Mitsuye Endo and Fred Korematsu, who challenged the constitutionality of the relocation, and curfew orders. While the men received negative judgments from the court, in the 1944 case, ExParte Mitsuye Endo, the Supreme Court held, “Mitsuye Endo is entitled to an unconditional release by the War Relocation Authority.” 

Many referred to the relocation centers as concentration camps. However, most Japanese considered their internment as an unfortunate episode, but a military necessity. In contrast, the Zionists who had done everything in their power to provoke a war with Germany, and got one, have spent decades building memorials, and milking payouts from European nations, and engaging in imposing legislation making it a criminal to question the Zionist narrative. 

In 1988 U.S. Congress passed Public Law 100-383, which acknowledged the injustice of the internment, apologized for it, and provided 20k USD payments to each person who was interned. The total payout to the Japanese was less than 2B USD. This is in contrast to the Jews who have sucked more than 140B USD from the Americans, and 60B from the Germans alone. Recently, the Zionists being led by Seagrams CEO, considered it an insult to receive a settlement of 600M USD from Switzerland, regarding questionable bank accounts that have sat idle for decades. Further, the Japanese have never built memorials, or engaged in publishing fantastical tales of mistreatment at the hands of those who held them in captivity during WWII.

The Japanese lived very clean in their camps; they bathed and as a result, never had to suffer a multitude of death causing diseases like Typhus. Both Theodor Herzl, and General Patton in their memoirs addressed again, and again the filthy squalor that Jews permitted themselves to live in. Patton even discussed how the Jews defected in one corner of a room instead of going outside and using the latrines. As unpleasant as this may seem, these are the words of the most famous Zionist, and the most famous general of WWII.

One of the most stunning ironies in this episode of American civil liberties was articulated by an internee who, when told that the Japanese were put in those camps for their own protection, countered “If we were put there for our protection, why were the guns at the guard towers pointed inward, instead of outward?”

The purpose of this gallery is to show how the Japanese, in contrast to the Zionists, Communists, and undesirables interned in German camps, carried themselves with dignity, throughout circumstances that were entirely undignified. While the Japanese remain silent about the injustice they suffered during WWII, the Zionist opportunists continue to whine, beg, and extort billions from people who weren’t even alive during WWII. Fantastically, the Zionists, and irrational supporters of Israel are confused as to how, and why the rampant, and widespread rise in anti-Semitism continues to grow.

The Israelis should learn from the Japanese how hard work, and ethics is what made Japan one of the world’s top economies. The same applies to the Germans. On the other hand, Israel, living off of the backs of others, perpetually begging for handouts, obtaining billions through extortion, occupation, and fraud, can’t muster up enough do re mi to maintain a top forty slot. Oy vey!
