Wisconsin Supreme Court judge: stay-at-Home orders = WWII Japanese internment

[www.washingtonpost.com]

“Isn’t it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities?” asked Justice Rebecca Bradley.”

That’s right, folks. It’s Republican imprisonment, apparently. No different that forcing Japanese Americans into camps.

Is it any wonder that the same crowd who misreads the current situation now reveals themselves to misread a decades-old travesty, while claiming to understand it?

Once again, your freedom to make me sick trumps my freedom to keep us all healthy.

“She was appointed to the Supreme Court by Governor Scott Walker...”

‘Nuff said?

The Wisconsin Supreme Court is supremely f’ed up.

Yeah, a loosely enforced stay-at-home order in the middle of a global pandemic with 72,000 US deaths (and counting), just the same as a concentration camp.

Exactly.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you today’s Republican party.

What, are you saying Japanese-American internment camps were a good thing? How dare you! /s

Look at the bright side. At least the judge used an example of an American atrocity instead of the old Holocaust standby. Who knows, maybe the next judge will use the mistreatment of Native Americans as an example. Progress!

From the OP’s link:

“Chief Justice Patience Roggensack said the increase in cases in Brown County was the result of an outbreak in a meatpacking facility and that it wasn’t from “the regular folks.”



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

What’s kind of sad is that Oscar Meyer used to be a big presence in Madison, but Kraft closed them down a number of years ago to get cheaper, non-union labor elsewhere.

Few “regular folks” work in meatpacking any more - it’s recent immigrants and non-citizens.
