FDR Got It

This September 11, my wife and I took an out-of-town guest sightseeing on the Mall. 

We began our tour at the FDR Memorial.  Inscribed on the memorial's walls are 21 quotations; some well known, some not.

This one caught our attention:

"We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all our citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred, is a wedge designed to attack our civilization."

How a propos is that?
