You read that right! If this Amendment goes through, specific citizens or even nameless groups of New Yorkers may be rounded up and held in concentration, I mean, detainment camps, for sixty days (or even longer!) if they’re merely suspected of being in contact with someone who’s suspected of being ill. Exposure to radiation and toxic chemicals are also listed as reasons New Yorkers may be rounded up en masse and put away.
Hello, Nazi Germany!
Nazi Camps are nothing new to New York. During the 1930s, a summer camp to “promote a favorable view of Nazi Germany” was set-up in (now) Yaphank, NY. As recently as 2016, no one could purchase a home in Siegried Park in Yaphank without proving they were mainly of German derivation.
That’s awful, isn’t it!?
So why is NY Assemblyman N. Nick Perry proposing legislation that mimics Nazi-style carte blanche incarceration a la Scheveningen!?! And who is this character anyways?
According to Wikipedia (that font of all truth and knowledge), N. Nick Perry is a Democrat. No $hit, Sherlock. What was your first clue?
Born in Jamaica in 1951, N. Nick Perry immigrated to the United States in 1971 where he honorably served in the Army and graduated from Brooklyn College with a B. A. in Political Science. “Since 2001, Perry has been the Vice-Chair of the Assembly Majority Conference and Majority Whip,” Wikipedia says. “He currently serves on the New York State Assembly Committees on Ways & Means, Rules, Codes, Labor, Transportation and Banks….Perry ran uncontested in his 2008, 2010 and 2012 general elections for State Assembly.”
WANTED: Trump MAGA Conservative to challenge Perry when he runs for re-election. Somebody? ANYBODY!?!
So what does Perry’s proposed Amendment actually say and why is it so freaking scary? Here’s the PDF. It’s only four pages long. I dare you to read it. The minutes will fly like hours.
Meanwhile, for you more impatient souls, here are the juiciest tidbits. Read it and weep, New York! They’re coming for you!
“…the governor…may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained. Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises….”
Stop right there.
Sure, the Amendment’s preamble clearly states it’s about communicable illness but pfffftttt. You only have to be suspected of having been exposed to illness, toxins or radiation to be incarcerated for five business days (at least!). Even if they do test you for say, COVID-19, we know how notoriously incorrect those tests are.
You may not even be treated as an individual. Oh no! “…if the order applies to a
group of individuals and it is impractical to provide individual copies, it may be posted in a conspicuous place in the detention premises.”
If I were a particular ethnic group (and with my maiden name I should never be anti-Semitic or I’ll have to hate myself), I’d be getting really nervous right about now.
Cast your mind back to how the Jewish community in NYC was treated just before Thanksgiving. De Blasio posted sheriffs in their communities, brazenly peering through binoculars into their homes, hoping to bust them in hypothetical wrongdoing.
If NYC did that despite being vilified for anti-Semitism, what’s to stop them exploiting this new Amendment a la Nazi Germany!?! A nar geyt tsvey mol dort vu a kliger geyt nit keyn eyntsik mol. ( A fool goes twice where a sensible person doesn’t even go once.)
The Amendment goes on to say, “After any such request for release, detention shall not
continue for more than five business days in the absence of a court order authorizing detention….in no event shall any person be detained for more than sixty days….The governor or his or her delegee shall seek further court review of such detention within ninety days.”
Sixty or ninety. It doesn’t much matter. You can basically kiss your job and your home goodbye!
But Assemblyman Perry is being big about it: “…the person or group being detained…may supply the addresses and/or telephone numbers of friends and/or relatives to receive notification of the person’s detention.” Aw shucks. How kind! After you’re rounded up in a nameless herd, they offer you the great kindness of calling Mom so she can break into your home to feed Fifi and Fido, if they’re still alive and if Mom wasn’t also rounded up in the same herd.
Shades of Manzanar!
The Amendment doesn’t exactly say, “Arbeit macht frei” but it does dictate your behavior during this unConstitutional detainment: “…a person who is detained in a medical facility, or other appropriate facility or premises, shall not conduct himself or herself in a disorderly manner, and shall not leave or attempt to leave such facility.”
But never fear. Big Brother is here to cure you! “In addition to the removal or detention…the governor…may…require an individual who has been exposed to or infected by a contagious disease to complete an appropriate, prescribed course of treatment, preventive medication or vaccination.”
There it is, folks! Forced vaccination. We always knew They would try it!
All I can say is, call your Congresspeople, New York! Write letters. Write emails. Burn up the phone lines. Pickett. Tweet. Parade. Call the White House. Do something…or you are rightly and truly and totally fu…I mean, screwed.
And to Messrs Perry, De Blasio and Cuomo I have this to say:Yeder eyzl hot lib tsu hern vi er aleyn hirzet. Translation from Yiddish: “Every ass likes to hear himself bray” and you, sirs, are complete and utter ASSES! (Click to Source)
