Former General Wesley Clark proposed on MSNBC just a few days ago internment camps for “radicalized” Americans in the wake of the Chattanooga shooting. Four Marines and a sailor were killed after Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on two military installations, and the days since have been dominated by coverage about radical Islam and stopping more alleged terrorist attacks from happening.
Well, in speaking with MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts last Friday, Clark looked to World War II for guidance.
Back then, he said, “if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put him in a camp.”
And that’s what he thinks the U.S. should do now:
“If these people are radicalized and they don’t support the United States, and they’re disloyal to the United States as a matter of principle, fine, that’s their right. It’s our right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.”
