This particular article is propaganda, look at how it brings no evidence whatsoever to the table to prove these camps do not exist. Instead, they just bash and bash those who ask questions. I've battled them for weeks now to remove the bias from their page, and I just keep getting told there's insubstantial evidence. H.R. 645 exists. The FEMA camps exist. Why can't we get a look inside the camps? Why can't we even be AROUND them?

Though exact claims about the purpose and nature of the camps vary from one [[crank]] to another, a common theme is that they will be used to detain dissenting US citizens after the consolidation of the [[North American Union]] in preparation for the establishment of a [[New World Order|one-world government]]. The camps allegedly come complete with boxcars for moving people around and plastic coffins for burying them. (Why not just burn the corpses [[Nazi]]-style?)

There has been one time in America's history when the government did send its own citizens to internment camps.

I've battled them for weeks now to remove the bias from their page, and I just keep getting told there's insubstantial evidence. H.R. 645 exists. The FEMA camps exist.

FEMA concentration camps exist in the mind of a particularly loopy bunch of conspiracy theorists who believe that mass internment facilities have been built across the continental United States by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, in preparation for a future declaration of martial law.

There are several videos purporting to show footage of the camps, as well as shots of ominous-looking fences and webpages listing locations of over 800 camps, allegedly all fully guarded and staffed full-time despite being completely empty.[1][2] In addition to the implausibility of such a massive conspiracy being kept totally silent,[3] the evidence is damaged by the fact that the videos and pictures actually depict everything from National Guard training centers to Amtrak repair stations to North Korean labor camps.[4]

The FEMA camp conspiracy theory has been alluded to by Republican leadership candidate Michele Bachmann, though she did not say FEMA.[5] Glenn Beck, who to his credit later backpedaled and hosted a debunking segment featuring a government shill guest from Popular Mechanics, promoted the theory as well.[6] Still, the theory remains popular among the survivalist community and the militia movement, and there's no shortage of adherents on the Internet.

Internment in the past

There has been one time in America's history when the government did send its own citizens to internment camps. During World War II, about 110-120,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly relocated from the West Coast to internment camps in the interior of the country, on the grounds that they would act as a fifth column against the American war effort. Privately, many white farmers on the West Coast also viewed it as a way to get rid of their Japanese competitors. This incident is often brought up by those who claim that the government has the will to do it again (occasionally claiming that some of the planned FEMA camps are renovated Japanese internment centers), neglecting to mention the fact that the backlash against internment very quickly sapped that very will.

The USA also deported many Native Americans to Oklahoma, but they weren't US citizens at the time.
