Wesley Clark: ‘Radicalized’ People Should Be Segregated ‘From the Normal Community’

Former Democratic presidential candidate and retired General Wesley Clark argued that if people who “radicalized…don’t support the United States, and they’re disloyal to the United States as a matter of principle,” then “It’s our right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community” on Friday’s “MSNBC Live.”

Clark, when asked how to “fix self-radicalized lone wolves,” answered, “Well, we’ve got to identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized. We’ve got to cut this off at the beginning. There are always a certain number of young people who are alienated. They don’t get a job. They lost a girlfriend. Their family doesn’t feel happy here. And we can watch the signs of that and there are members of the community who will reach out to those people and bring them back in, and encourage them to look at their blessings here.”

He continued, “I do think on a national policy level, we need to look at what self-radicalization means, because we are at war with this group of terrorists. They do have an ideology. In World War II, if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put them in a camp, we — they were prisoners of war. So, if these people are radicalized, and they don’t support the United States, and they’re disloyal to the United States as a matter of principle, fine. That’s their right. It’s our right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict. And I think we’re going to have to increasingly get tough on this, not only in the United States, but our allied nations, like Britain and Germany and France, are going to have to look at their domestic law procedures.”
