George Takei Vs New Possibly Internment Bill S.1253
When George Takei speaks, people listen. He is advocating for people to vote against 1253.
Could it happen again? Maybe not in mass, but who knows.
“Now a bill proposed in the U.S. Senate, S. 1253 (McCain/Levin) would authorize a similar sweeping authority, granted to the President, to order the detention–without charge or trial–of any person even suspected of being associated with a “terrorist organization.” I could scarcely believe my eyes when I saw that we hadn’t learned from the terrible lessons of the past.” (allegiancemusical – Takei)
