Ahhhhhh, so she said "concentration camps" instead of "internment camps" over and over and over again, and invoked "Never Again"....because she didn't know what she was saying. Got it. It's not that she DIDN'T invoke Nazis with that combination - it's that she didn't KNOW she was invoking Nazis when she did it.She is pretty ****ing stupid, I can buy that she didn’t understand that meaning for ‘never again’ in the sense of the holocaust.
That being said, all of those definitions are consistent in that they are not exclusive to Nazis.
Show one source that says "Concentration camps also include things like the Japanese internment camps".Do you need a list of things she has said to prove that she is brain Dead?
And all those phrases mean the word is used for other things, like the Japanese interment camps.
I think it is hilarious that he says she didn't understand the use of Never Again "in the sense of the holocaust". Is there another way that it is used such that her statement, "I want to talk to the people who are concerned enough with humanity to say that we should not...that NEVER AGAIN means something, and the fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing."$1 says he points you to his own previous post!
That’s funny. She directly linked to the Japanese interment camps. If she did anything related to German camps it was at best implied, and she didn’t say or even imply exterminationWell, duh, of course the word exterminated is horrifying. It was horrifying, and extermination was the indeed the stated goal. Here she directly links the German concentration camps to the detention centers in the US in one sentence. Pretty clear.
As far as "co-opting the language of the oppressor", shes the one co-opting the tragedy of the Holocaust, trying to borrow the horror of that event to fight against something far less horrible. Still sucky, but equating millions rounded up without any choice other than slaughter at home and sent to deliberate mass slaughter in camps to folks whose chose to leave thier homes and make the choice to illegally enter another country where they face detainment in coniditons most likely far better than they have ever enjoyed in thier live is ludicrous.
Has anyone mention the German POW camps here in the USofA?
Didn't the Brits get credit for creating concentration camps during the Boer Wars?Concentration camp
Concentration camp, internment centre for political prisoners and members of national or minority groups who are confined for reasons of state security, exploitation, or punishment, usually by executive decree or military order. Persons are placed in such camps often on the basis of identification with a particular ethnic or political group rather than as individuals and without benefit either of indictment or fair trial. Concentration camps are to be distinguished from prisons interning persons lawfully convicted of civil crimes and from prisoner-of-war camps in which captured military personnel are held under the laws of war. They are also to be distinguished from refugee camps or detention and relocation centres for the temporary accommodation of large numbers of displaced persons.
Now we're playing semantics. Most concentration camps were, in actual operation, death camps. Perhaps not direct execution, but reduced calories, horrible living/working conditions, etc. made the net effect the same.For your edification, the majority of the German concentration camps were not death camps.
And, yet, she referred to them as concentration camps many, many, many times more often than internment camps.That’s funny. She directly linked to the Japanese interment camps. If she did anything related to German camps it was at best implied, and she didn’t say or even imply extermination
For your edification, the majority of the German concentration camps were not death camps.
Someone been reading my posts?As always, she wants to have her rhetorical cake and eat it, too. She wants to evoke images of the Holocaust without having to defend the comparison. It's a bogus game.
