Scare Tactics

There seems to be a lot of fear going around that the Federal government is planning on creating a crisis and will round up conservatives and put us in concentration camps.  This video is in that catagory.  It is about a US Army field manual about how to run an internment camp.

The US military has performed this type of operation since at least the American Civil War. During WWII the US Army took over large parts of North Africa and Western Europe and Japan. Naturally they had to care for civilians who were displaced or interred. We did the same thing during the Korean War as refugees fled south to avoid the North Koreans.
US Army troops were deployed to San Francisco after the Great Earthquake of 1903 and the Long Beach Earthquake of 1933. After every major natural disaster the US Army, especially National Guard and usually Military Police are deployed to stop rioting, looting and property destruction. They bring people together so they can be fed, housed and sanitary facilities can be arranged.  This is just another fear monger out there taking information out of context and trying to scare people; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
