This much is true: “On February 19, 1942, Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which forced all Japanese-Americans, regardless of loyalty or citizenship, to evacuate the West Coast. No comparable order applied to Hawaii, one-third of whose population was Japanese-American, or to Americans of German and Italian ancestry.”

But your speculation makes no sense: “Why? Because they were WHITE. Because they were not to be perceived as a Threat. Because of the COLOR of their SKIN.”

You already said that Japanese-Americans in Hawaii were not interned either: was that because they were WHITE? Because they were not to be perceived as a Threat? No: it was because it was impractical to intern 1/3 of the population. That is the same reason Americans of German and Italian ancestry were not interned in continental USA; there were far too many of them. German and Italian citizens were interned in Australia during the war. It is possible the Japanese were evacuated from the West Coast to protect them from being shot by defenders in the event of a Japanese invasion. They may just have been clearing the field of fire of false targets.

Your rewrite of “First they came” is bogus too:

“First they came for the Muslims, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Muslim.” They did not come for the Muslims, only for the Islamist Terrorists; there’s a massive difference.

“Then they came for the Immigrants, and I did not speak out, because I was not an Immigrant.” They did not come for the immigrants, only for illegal immigrants; there’s a massive difference.

“Then they came for the Transgenders, and I did not speak out, because I was not Transgender.” No one is coming for the Transgenders, because there are no such things, only people suffering from Gender Dysphasia, who instead of being cured of their mental illness have been mutilated by greedy unethical surgeons. No one is coming for these mutilated men, in fact most people agree to treat them as women out of pity for their condition.

“Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Terrorists, Illegal Immigrants and Transgenders make up a tiny % of the population, so there are plenty of people left to speak up for you, if they could be bothered supporting someone who spouts evil, lying, hateful nonsense such as this. The round ups have not BEGUN, unless you count the deportation of criminals back to their countries of origin.

“We are REPEATING history all over AGAIN.” No we are not; that is just more of your bullshit. In the immortal words of Crowded House “History never repeats!” America is not Germany, and Trump is a Capitalist not a Socialist.
