Democrats Fear 'Impending' Trump Internment Camps, Forgetting what FDR Did

An anniversary came and went Sunday with little fanfare.

This is rich. The Hill reports that one Democrat is really mad at Donald Trump's travel ban:

Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) on Monday compared congressional Republicans' acceptance of President Trump's executive order restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries to lawmakers who didn't fight against the Japanese internment camps during World War II.

The history of the U.S. government forcing Japanese Americans to live in camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor is personal for Takano: His parents and grandparents were among the people in those camps.

"History often forces us to ask ourselves: How would we have acted if we lived in that moment?" Takano mused in a fiery House floor speech. "Through the president's recent executive order, we no longer have to wonder."

But wait just one second, Rep. Takano. When the 75th anniversary of these World War II internment camps and went on Sunday, why didn't you point out that the Democrat Party - your own - was the party who made them happen? President Franklin D. Roosevelt is the President who signed Executive Order 9066 which authorized this imprisonment. Yet, Democrats use this historical example to warn against Republican Trump?  

This tweet pretty much sums up the hypocrisy:

When asked what he thought about FDR's internment of Japanese Americans, President Tump said he was not in support of that move:

"No, I'm not. No, I'm not," he said emphatically.

But that's not enough to stop hysterical Democrats from making the most hyperbolic comparisons, hoping Americans don't remember their history. Well, since Democrats have controlled the public schools through unions for decades, perhaps that's a pretty safe bet.
