This post was originally entitled “Funny Political.” My intention was to note the nearly one-month anniversary of the duly installed President of the United States of America with funny memes. I am not his supporter.
I just became aware of the historical significance of this day and could not allow it to pass without mention.
As part of a response to the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii by the Empire of Japan, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942.
Thousands of law-abiding and innocent Japanese American people were dispossessed of their property and relocated to internment camps where they lived for several years, because of racism. They were denied due process, because of racism. They were deemed the enemy, because of racism. The order did not affect either German or Italian Americans.
What is legal ain’t always right.
Apartheid was legal. It was unjust.
Jim Crow was legal. It was immoral.
Nazi Holocaust was legal. It was wrong.
Colonialism was legal. It was unfair.
Slavery was legal. It was illicit.
Genocide of the Native Americans was legal. It was unacceptable.
Fascism is always wrong.
Legality has nothing to do with justice, morality, right, fairness, or legitimacy, but it has everything to do with who is in power.
Your voice matters.
*And now back to our regularly scheduled program.*
A collection of funny memes from the recent presidential elections season, which appears to be unending… Enjoy!
