  •  Okay, but Japanese Americans (4+ / 0-)

    get a pass because we were already interned.  Blacks, too, slavery.  All immigrant groups held in detention at Angel Island or Ellis Island or in Texas or Florida.  Native Americans. Married women.  Okay, married men.  Gay and lesbians (we've been stuck in closets for generations).  The poor, the hungry, the tired.  Unmarried people, people without children, people with children. People forced to live in substandard housing, and forced to attend underfunded public schools.  People who can't get a job, people trapped in horrible jobs.  The exploited workers. People isolated in rural areas denied access to decent medical care, communication systems, economic opportunities...

    Screw it. Let's just intern shallow selfish stupid pundits who suffer from first generation (she is one of her own despised "anchor babies") Americanitis, a gripping insecurity over their fear of being a fraudulent American, that they relieve by attacking American ideals.
