    The actual term 'concentration camp' was invented by the Spanish (as campo de concentración or campo de reconcentración) in 1896. A rebellion had broken out in Cuba, then a Spanish colony, the previous year and Spain was brutal. The second country to operate concentration camps under that actual name was the United States in 1900, in the Philippines. The USA had recently acquired the Philippines from Spain, only to be confronted by a rebellion by Filipinos who wanted independence rather than American rule. Neither of these were death factories like the Germans ran. Nor is America gassing hungry children in Texas.

    The dictionary tells us a concentration camp is; "a place in which large numbers of people, especially political prisoners or members of persecuted minorities, are deliberately imprisoned in a relatively small area with inadequate facilities"

    Which is exactly what these camps are.

    No. The term does not matter. Nor do the Japanese Americans as they are "West Coast Democrats"

    It matters not in the name as it is still a "concentration camp". Concentrating a certain group of people in a small area.

    The Japanese knew exactly what they were. The Japanese had beautiful garden homes when they were taken away, and the Chinese took over their homes and gardens. All over the west coast this happened. The land was never given back or the Japanese compensated for their loss.

    A HISTORICAL FACT. A blight both on U.S. and Canadian history.

    They are NOT "Humanitarian camps". HC would house & feed & provide medical care & housing for the aliens so NONE DIED. Yet there has been family separations and a dozen have died while under the care of ICE. Kids are in CAGES. WHAT DO YOU CALL THAT?

    Yet Trump wants to pick a fight with Iran because they killed a machine that was spying on them? Face the fact that Iranian tech can see what crosses into their airspace (even 12 mile high stealth) and they can hit it. No one died (and spies are classified as "nobody" in rules of war.)

    The U.S. still has to apologize to Iran for shooting an Iranian passenger plane out of the sky with 150 people who died. The U.S. conveniently forgets about that incident.

    . The explosion that happened on the JAPANESE oil tanker was done by a surface to surface missile and the only one in the region with that capability is a U.S. frigate ship. . A sailor aboard the oil tanker said he saw something coming to the ship "like a bullet" from elsewhere so it was not a bomb placed on the hull above the water line. Trump and his war monger crew fakks up trying to frame Iran for something the U.S. did. Other countries see this too, so nobody is going to jump aboard the declaration of war by the U.S. Trump does not care if he uses a nuke in Iran. Iraq is primitive compared to Iran and the war there took 20 years & a Trillion $ and many U.S.lives. A walk in the park compared to Iran.

    A war in the region will mean all the oil in the region of the Arabian peninsula will become radioactive. Pissing all the ARABS off. Gas prices will shoot up into the stratosphere because the oil companies can and will charge that much more because they are short on oil reserves. The U.S. subsidizes the oil industry so even more money comes out to keep the prices lower than world prices. Financially it is a crazy orange move.

    But TRUMP will do "Crazy schitte" to hide his financial records. He is POOR compared to the other rich people. That is why he is hiding his records, and he gets a pay off from the Russians.

    His son Eric said so.

    Trump is still attacking "Hillary" His mind is stuck in gear. She is not running. He has only his record to go with, and that is pretty BAD. While he says the economy is doing great...we know he lies (so the opposite is True) as his record for lies is in the thousands at last count and still rising.

    What's the difference in the camps???

  • 6 months ago

    A concentration camp is just a place where you concentrate people.

    They were invented by the British during the Boer war so that they could keep an eye on Boer families to make sure they weren't feeding the rebels.

    We created concentration camps in Vietnam, called "protected villages" for the same reason.

    Japanese American "detention camps" were also concentration camps by another name.

    But when we hear the phrase, it makes us think of the NAZI death camps.

    An Immigration detention camp is not even similar to a death camp.

      Before you take it as a lesson in campaigning, research and know where the term came from. (It did NOT originate in Germany, and until WWII, it didn't mean death factories. But they WERE always evil)
