Recently, Justice Scalia spoke to a law school class and said that he wouldn’t be surprised if the courts would accept internment camps again during a time of war as they did with the Japanese in WW2 because the courts are reluctant to get involved in such situations (he said he would oppose this and that the Supreme Court was wrong in the Korematsu case to uphold it). Glenn Beck, please fire up the outrage machine and go on a ridiculous rant about how conservatives will soon be locked up for being anti-abortion and doubting global warming.
“It was a group of people who said ‘we know we’re right,’” Beck said. “Global warming; sound familiar? We know we’re right and if you’re standing in the way, you’re standing in the way of Manifest Destiny. Sound familiar; Obamacare? We know we right and if you don’t, you’re standing in the way of progress. Sound familiar? Sound like abortion advocates? We know we right and if you don’t agree with us, there’s no place for you in this state. That’s why Scalia is saying it’s going to happen again.”
No, actually it’s not. It’s not even close, in fact.
