Crooked Congressman Proposes Concentration Camps

Posted by Dave Blount at February 3, 2009 6:51 AM

Remember Alcee Hastings, the federal judge who after being impeached for corruption became a Democrat Congresscrook and Co-Chair of Shrillary Rotten's presidential campaign? Nancy "Culture of Corruption" Pelosi wanted him to head the House Intelligence Committee, but was forced to back off due to the outraged reaction to having a known criminal in charge of our security. Yet Hastings still has security concerns:

Rep. Alcee L. Hastings, D-Fla., has introduced to the House of Representatives a new bill, H.R. 645, calling for the secretary of homeland security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers for corralling civilians on military installations.
The proposed bill, which has received little mainstream media attention, appears designed to create the type of detention center that those concerned about use of the military in domestic affairs fear could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany.

Hastings may be best known for saying this about Sarah Palin:

Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don't care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.

Yet Saracuda isn't the one proposing concentration camps. Maybe Hastings actually believes his own rhetoric, and wants to make us into lampshades before we do the same to him. Whatever his motives, "toting guns" is a wise practice, given the people running our government.

How's this for a culture of corruption?
