Removal of Rep. Howard Coble
More Info at:
Rep. Coble's views regarding the Japanese American internment, which he has repeatedly defended in the days following his statement, demonstrate that his understanding of fundamental American values, basic civil liberties and constitutional rights is far out of step with the U.S. Congress and the American people. He is unfit to serve as the chairman of a Congressional subcommittee that is charged with weighing the most consequential civil liberties issues of our time.
We view Rep. Coble's statement that "I apologize if I offended anybody. I certainly did not intend to offend anybody" as a non-apology, and his continuing efforts to justify the Japanese American internment as an affront to all freedom-loving Americans. We call for his immediate removal from the House Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security.
