This video was produced by the U.S. Government to explain their decision to forcibly intern thousands of American citizens of Japanese descent. It's an amazing/horrific display of U.S. Government propaganda.

This reminds me of something I saw before hmm.. I know it starts with a Concentration and ends with Camps

Propaganda at its finest.

I'm watching this like, "What could the government possibly gain from the forced movement of Japanese, if not for the sake of National Security?" 3:30 Ohhhhh....

Propaganda throughout WWII was ridiculous. Look how the government manipulated Americans citizens to think the Japanese WANTED to be evacuated away from their homes, crammed into a small area where they were discriminated. The majority of the Japanese people did not joyously agree to this. Video is completely bias. 
I am a grown man and this makes me want to cry. I can not see a rational, intelligent person defending this.
reality was that the japanese Were conducting a war against all non-japanese, and it was a most serious, life/death, prospect. WWII was hell for a lot of folks. but the biggest crime was not the internment, but the failure after the war to fully help the dislocated regain their position in their former communities.

"The west coast could have become a battleground" Yeah right. The Japanese had neither the interest nor the capacity to ever conquer hawaii let alone the west coast. It just xenophobia that led to the internment camps. Nothing more

This seems like the Japanese were playfully moved to those concentration camps. God knows what was behind this description. When I was in high school I was taught they were forcefully evacuated from their properties because the Americans felt them as they were spy of Japan.
