The Nightgown of the Sullen Moon blog is at it again with this post that includes a propaganda video about the “Japanese Relocation” in the US during WW II. For a little context, this is a post for an Asian American Literature class being taught by Professor Scanlon at UMW. Have I failed to mention how much I learn from all of the unbelievable stuff linked to in the tubular community of UMW Blogs?
Watch this video, then tell me if you know of a better primary source to frame the complex issues surrounding a nationalized rhetoric of freedom and its problematic relationship to democracy, citizenship, and homeland security –not only in regards to the defining event of the “Greatest Generation,” but more importantly to our national embroilment today? Moreover, if you know of such a resource, let me know if it can be as easily and freely accessed as this one.
