Fox’s “Cashin’ In” Cashes In on Japanese Internment


“Yeah, you read that headline right. Over the weekend, Eric Bolling, the host of Fox News’ Cashin’ In went to Michelle Malkin-land and justified criminal profiling of Muslims based upon the notion that sending pretty near every Japanese American on the U.S. mainland (120,000+ people) and not a few in Hawai’i to prison camps in WWII contributed to the success of the U.S. war effort. According to Bolling, “we know how to find terrorists among us: profile, profile, profile.”

Doubling down on that sentiment, panelist Jonathan Hoenig said:

…Let’s take a trip down memory lane here: the last war this country won, we put Japanese-Americans in internment camps, we dropped nuclear bombs on residential city centers. So yes, profiling would at least be a good start…

I know this view of Japanese American internment (not to mention killing at least 80,000 civilians with atomic bombs that also poisoned tens of thousands more for years afterward) is meant to drum up controversy; to lift ratings. But for the sake of those of you who, like me, have friends and family members who take the info-tainment on Fox seriously, here are a few facts to consider.

One thought on “Fox’s “Cashin’ In” Cashes In on Japanese Internment

  1. She obviously fails to remember her heritage as being from the Philippines and what kind of discrimination they too faced in this Country. She obviously has no idea what it was like for those families in those inhumane camps. She obviously has no concept of the human tragedy the atomic bombs brought. This is a woman who speaks without understanding nor seeks understanding. Ignorance and hate are often found in her comments.
