    Hello Mark,

    You are very correct to condemn the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, just as virtually all Americans now find it to be an abhorrent stain on the history of this country. However, instead of the simple ranting that this was wrong, can you please reply here as to why you believe President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered this interment of American citizens of Japanese ancestry while generally not ordering a comprehensive interment of American citizens of German or Italian ancestry? What was President Roosevelt thinking here and how do you believe he justified this to himself?

    Thank you

    Shocking that a mega-rich white guy of the most extreme fame & privilege like Tom Hanks can get away with bringing back terms like ‘Slant eyed, yellow dog” against the Japanese, using the plight of these people and exploiting their hardships to SELL his latest project. Oh, I know he was putting that phrase in someone else’s mouth, but he’s the one saying it now, holding the Japanese out as props for his own benefit. Also, it’s very sorry to see hacks like you (Levine) sell out all racial integrity to nuzzle up to the likes of Hanks, putting another foot down on top of the victims in your pathetic attempt to gain your own personal leverage off of their backs…

    Absolutely shameful.

    Hats off to O’Reilly for exposing this.

    Mark, You obviosly are uninformed about the internment of Germans and Italians in America during World War II. You obvously do not know that thousands of Germans were interned along with hundreds of Italians or that the last Germans were held on Ellis Island until July 1948. You probably do not know that on orders of President Roosevelt,the United Staes Government in cooperation with numerous South American governments kidnapped thousands of German and Japanese nationals from Latin America and held hostage as bargining chips in a secret prisoner exchange program with the Axis powers.

    You need to read my recently published book, “Shattered Lives, Shattered Dreams” to learn the truth of the internment. Send me your mailing address and I willsend you a signed copy.
