Muslim internment camp flyers found all over University of California San Diego campus

  • Flyers about Muslim internment camps were posted throughout campus at the University of California-San Diego on Wednesday, NBC San Diego reported.
  • “All Muslim persons, both alien and non-alien, will be evacuated from the above designated area by 12:00 o'clock noon Wednesday, April 8, 2017,” the flyer, which includes multiple misspellings and grammatical errors, reads. 
  • Titled “INSTRUCTIONS TO ALL PERSONS OF ISLAMIC BELIEF,” the flyer read ordered the evacuation of Muslims from the San Diego area.
  • The flyers are a near-replica of posters that appeared after the bombing of Pearl Harbor when FDR signed an executive order to round up Japanese-Americans and force them into internment camps.
  • “No Muslim person will be permitted to enter or leave the above described area after 8:00 a.m., Thursday, April 2, 2017, without obtaining special permission from the Provost Marshal at the Civil Control Station.”
  • The individual who posted the flyers, a UCSD student who kept their name anonymous, claimed responsibility for them in a statement published in a local newspaper. 
  • The intention was not to be Islamophobic, the person said. Instead, they intended to “shock and anger people” regarding the rise of Islamophobia since Trump’s presidential win. Read more (3/2/17 2:54 PM)

September 16th 1920: Wall Street bombing

On this day in 1920, a terrorist attack killed 39 people on Wall Street, New York City. At noon, a horse-drawn buggy loaded with 100 pounds of dynamite and 500 pounds of iron slugs exploded across the street from the J.P. Morgan building. The powerful blast shattered windows all along the iconic street, and completely destroyed the interior of the Morgan headquarters; the damage inflicted totaled millions of dollars. In addition to the 39 fatalities, 300 people were injured by shrapnel and glass raining down during the lunch-time rush on Wall Street. The victims were mostly clerks, messengers, and secretaries who worked for Wall Street financial companies. The bombing brought chaos to New York, as authorities rejected the possibility of accidental cause, and struggled to find those responsible. One of the chiefs of J.P. Morgan accused Bolshevik communists of the bombing, and the public called on Congress and the White House for security measures against communist terrorism. To this day, the perpetrators of the bombing are unclear, though a warning note indicates that the act was planned by a group of anarchists. If this is the case, the bombers may have committed the attack on a symbol of American capitalism as revenge for the recent murder indictment of two prominent anarchists. Today, 95 years on, the stone of 23 Wall Street still bears shrapnel scars from one of the first terrorist attacks on New York City.

“Remember. We will not tolerate any longer. Free the political prisoners or it will be death for all of you. American Anarchist Fighters!“

December 17th 1903: Wright brothers’ plane flight

On this day in 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first successful flight of a self-propelled, heavier-than-air aircraft. The Wright brothers were entrepreneurial from a young age, and, while not attending college, honed their engineering skills by building printing presses and bicycles. Inspired by earlier experiments in glider flights, the brothers set about to build the first airplane. They conducted their experiments in the small village of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The brothers tested several gliders from 1900 to 1903, and successfully developed a biplane glider, which included a steering system. However, they required an engine to power the plane, and designed a 12-horsepower internal combustion engine, which they assembled with the plane in autumn 1903. The first flight attempt on December 14th failed when the engine stalled, but, after a few days of repairs and readjustments, they were ready to try once more. At 10.35am on December 17th, with a crowd of five witnesses, the Wright brothers’ plane - with Orville piloting - successfully flew for 12 seconds and travelled 120 feet. Thrilled by their achievement, the brothers continued to refine their machine, and by 1905 the aircraft could stay aloft for 40 minutes. The machines grew steadily more sophisticated, and in 1909 the brothers founded the Wright Company to build and market their aircraft. While certainly not the first to make advancements in flying technology, the Wright brothers secured a place in history through succesfully building a powered aircraft, controlled by a pilot. While there are competing claims to the ‘first flight’, the Wrights’ flight on December 17th 1903 is often hailed as the beginning of the modern aviation era.
