Well, thank God they don't want to call them "concentration camps." Didn't work too well last time.

The kids at Free Republic -- land of radical Republicans -- are having quite the debate over a story from Germany that claims:
A far-right party in Germany said Wednesday that foreigners living in the country should be put into "collection camps" and then expelled if French-style violence breaks out.

The National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD), which last year won 9.2 per cent of the vote in Saxony state and has 12 seats in the regional parliament, called for laws aimed at reducing the population of resident foreigners.

Germany has about 7.3 million foreigners who comprise some 9 per cent of the total population.

"If riots are organised like in France then collection camps and vigilantes must be organised in time to protect life and property," said the NPD.
The Freeper thread reveals quite a few "Islam is the problem" comments (we keep waiting for the "I Slam, You Slam, We All Slam for Islam" comment to pop up).

Infuriating, eye-opening reading. Worth your time.

The commentaries on Free Republic are truly cause for alarm. Many of these posts exhibit an appalling degree of radical nationalism and religious intoleration.
