Clarence Moriwaki argues to Judge Sara McCulloch that Rynearson's refusal of the order to assassinate an American citizen without charge or trial outside a war zone who was no imminent threat (an order that Moriwaki labels "lawful") is evidence that Rynearson has "contempt for authority," while Rynearson's lawyer argues that Rynearson's refusal of the order was exactly what we hoped soldiers would have done when ordered to force Japanese Americans into internment camps

The suspect’s intent arguably was to advance his own political agenda." The Kitsap County Prosecutor added:

"Another unique fact is that the majority of the communication occurred on Facebook. If this were a face‐to‐face conversation, it most certainly would not be criminal."

Above we presented just the facts with little to no editorial. But here is the only conclusion that the facts bear out:

Clarence Moriwaki is a liar. Clarence Moriwaki is a thug. Clarence Moriwaki doesn't just lie, he lies in order to have a person put in jail. Clarence Moriwaki lies to hundreds and thousands of people to conjure fear from thin air about people he disagrees with, and makes an irrational mob think innocent people pose a threat to their physical safety. Further, in an age of tragic police shootings over harmless encounters where police routinely fear a phone or wallet, Clarence Moriwaki purposefully contacts police to encourage them to fear his political enemies.

Clarence Moriwaki is a deeply evil man.

Like most fascists, Clarence Moriwaki is insecure and thin-skinned and filled with hate. He surrounds himself with other people of similarly horrible character, like Judge Sara McCulloch and Senator Christine Rolfes who model corrupt character and abuse of power, and along with ordinary street thugs like convicted felon Tres Cozine who beat a girl with a bat because he was so angered by her speech. The hallmark of fascism is using street thugs and the machinery of government to silence those who criticize people in positions of power.

This ongoing situation demonstrates textbook fascism and makes clear without a doubt that Clarence Moriwaki is exactly the wrong person to be representing our memorial. As happened to Japanese Americans on Bainbridge Island in the 1940s, Clarence Moriwaki uses hysteria, lies, and propaganda to paint innocent people as dangerous threats while he simultaneously works with government to violate their constitutional rights and to exclude them from their homes and from their community. He stokes a mob, he plays on fears, and he lies about others while doing the very things he falsely accuses others of doing.

Clarence Moriwaki is an embarrassment to our Bainbridge Island and to the United States of America. Mostly, because indefinite detention without charge or trial is far worse than liking a sappy movie, Clarence Moriwaki is an embarrassment to our Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial and our memorial should cut all ties with him to save its credibility and further its mission.

There is no excuse for supporting Clarence Moriwaki. Let it not happen again.
