Can you believe that there are at least three statues of Franklin D. Roosevelt in Washington DC? There is one in South Dakota too, another in Virginia, and even more in London.
It appears all these places are overrun by racists and fascist sympathizers. How can people put up with revering a man who:
1. Literally Rounded Up 120,000 Japanese Americans, and Put them in Concentration Camps!
That was authorized by executive order 9066, which Roosevelt signed February 19, 1942.
How is this fact so often left out of any discussion about how “great” FDR was? These people were American citizens, and they were arrested for no reason other than their heritage.
He imprisoned an entire race. How is he not widely accepted as the biggest American racist of the last century? He was certainly the most effective racist.
Two reports which Roosevelt commissioned in the years prior found that Japanese Americans posed little to no risk to the government. Since FDR ignored the reports’ recommendations, it seems his violation of the rights of Japanese Americans was motivated by racism.
2. He Actually Outlawed Gold!
FDR had absolutely no respect for the people’s rights. He had no respect for the rule of law. He was a tyrant!
With Executive Order 6102, signed on April 5, 1933, everyone living in America was given 25 days to turn in their gold. Yes, their property was confiscated without due process. The government set the price they paid to about $20 per ounce. Three months later, the price miraculously jumped to $35 per ounce.
