H.R. 645-FEMA Detention Centers

I've been trying to post a video about Fema Concentration Camps in the U.S., but for some reason, it, and the text of this post will not publish together.

I will post it separately, because I think it is very interesting, and you'll find it below this post.

I've been reading about these camps for quite some time, at least for a couple of years, including debates about whether or not they actually exist--so, I guess I was a little shocked when I came across the video about Fema Concentration Camps.

I had intended to post the following article, which others are posting, too, and while researching a few facts, just happened upon the video.

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.

The bill also appears to expand the president's emergency power, much as the executive order signed by President Bush on May 9, 2007, that, as WND reported, gave the president the authority to declare an emergency and take over the direction of all federal, state, local, territorial and tribal governments without even consulting Congress.

Read the rest of it here.

Okay..I know there will be a lot of nay-sayers out there, ready to ridicule, and call names like "fear mongerer," but so be it; there are just as many, if not more, with sense enough to believe that it does not bode well.

No doubt, in another time, and another place, there were many who did not heed warning of what was about to befall them, thinking that it just could not happen in their civilized world...but it did.

Reading back over what I have just written reminds me of this quote by American philosopher George Santayana (1863-1952) : "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
