Locking People Up Just On Suspicion: A Democrat Idea

Not just when FDR interned Japanese-Americans but now.  Dec. 10, 2015 MSNBC reports:
As Hillary Clinton slams Donald Trump’s rhetoric on Muslims, some liberal and Muslim advocacy organizations are calling on the Democratic presidential front-runner to distance herself from Wesley Clark, the retired general and longtime Clinton ally who made controversial remarks on segregating radicalized Muslims this summer.

Clark, the retired four star general and NATO commander who ran for president in 2004, has been a surrogate for Clinton’s 2016 campaign, most recently stumping on her behalf in Iowa last month. But in a letter the 11 advocacy groups plan to send to Clinton’s presidential campaign Thursday, they ask the former secretary of state to remove him from that role....

Appearing on MSNBC in July, Clark said that radicalized people need to be separated from society. “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 and it’s our right and obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict. And I think we’re going to have to increasingly get tough on this,” he said.
