Quote of the day–Michi Weglyn

In the Rooseveltain era of avowed concern for the underdog, liberals and civil libertarians had been no exception.  The stripping of a minority of their constitutional rights, indeed the entire evacuation-internment folly, was ‘engineered by liberals’, asserts Professor William Petersen of Ohio State University.  ‘Among the civilians one can hardly name a person, from the President down to the local officials, who was not one.’
