Guess who issued the executive order to illegally imprison Japanese, Italian and Germans living in the US some US citizens? Our only 4 term, President for life Progressive icon FDR. The responsibility for the wholesale violation of minority rights is diffused to the country, can't allow anything to sully the image of our so-called greatest President.

Dammit, don't comment on any more videos I post without watching them It's insulting to both of us.

Don't display your ignorance of history, it's embarrassing to you. The truth is it wasn't the country that betrayed him, it was FDR the icon of Progressive Democrats. Today we see the inheritors of this totalitarian legacy imprisoning political adversaries weaponizing Congressional authority into endless investigations of the same set of facts.

I am not going to spend 10 minutes or whatever watching a racist actor expound on how his ancestors were mistreated but he is so wonderful he loves the country anyway. Recall his racist tantrum directed at Justice Thomas for the "crime" of writing a dissenting opinion from the SCOTUS royal edict declaring same sex marriage a so-called Constitutional right? Of course not, the virtue signaling actor is so wonderful we must all bath in the grievance.

Salty, if you want people to pay attention to your videos limit them to 7 or 8 minutes tops and summarize. What it's all about is not a summary.

I'm not going to watch 15-20 minutes to see if you actually have a point. The try to figure out what that point might be.
