Instead of nettouyoku, can we call this group the bakauyoku?

clueless - just like the man they adore...

13 ( +27 / -14 )

Comic relief continues!

11 ( +24 / -13 )

This is supposed to be ironic, right?

7 ( +16 / -9 )

The supporters look like japanese.. After all these historic touble with u.s, i do not think why the japanese support u.s president.. why u.s ??

4 ( +10 / -6 )

Sickos, all I can say!

1 ( +14 / -13 )

Ridiculous!

6 ( +18 / -12 )

Do they even know who Donald Trump is...?

14 ( +23 / -9 )

All countries have a few idiots who can’t differentiate reality and fake! The picture above shows some of the nutcases from Japan!

11 ( +22 / -11 )

Conservative religious sects..... Well, there you have it. Certain people are more susceptible to joining cults. The Trump supporters I know ( otherwise generally good people) :). All have a belief in god in common.

I really needed a good laugh this morning. Got it! Thank you JT. Great job!

11 ( +19 / -8 )

Well, isn't that cute. Now go home and start looking for some other lost cause to support. Here's an idea....Show your love for Kim Jong Un since he and Trump were such close friends. Maybe Kim will send some more of his love over in the way of more missiles.

"We wanted to show that many people in Japan are supporting President Trump," rally organizer Naota Kobayashi said .

There was only 120 of you, so they don't. Go home and be a family man.

12 ( +17 / -5 )

One hundred and twenty. That's about the total amount of brain cells they have combined. Be like your dear leader and go away but don't come back in any form.

14 ( +17 / -3 )

Probably Falun Gong nutters. They strongly support Trump as he was anti-China. China is prosecuting the cult.

5 ( +7 / -2 )

Baka! Trump is already out of office waiting to be arrested for tax evasion.

15 ( +17 / -2 )

Tokyo chapter of the Coup Klutz Klan...

9 ( +12 / -3 )

Hardline? Maybe they forgot about what he did for ZTE only to kind of change his stance with Huawei.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

The news said many of them were from a religious cult, not Falun Gong, something with "science" in the name. Not "scientology", but probably something similarly crazy. Many Qanon supporters too

Possibly the "Happy Science Institute"?

7 ( +8 / -1 )

I think they know who they are taking on . . . . the U S Congress, and the majority of people in the U S . . . .

5 ( +7 / -2 )

I think these delusional people should be more concerned about their own useless government. They're probably bored.

12 ( +15 / -3 )

Trump who?

Go home he left the building.

8 ( +11 / -3 )

So much winning.

My home country has a few of these winners, too. Genuinely misguided and in some cases, deeply unpleasant individuals.

Probably Falun Gong nutters. They strongly support Trump as he was anti-China. China is prosecuting the cult.

Here's the thing, though. Despite the flip-flopping, let's not forget that 45 supported Xi on a number of issues, the imprisonment of the Uighurs, the authoritarian measures he uses on his people, not to mention his (Trump) own family's business interests within China.

8 ( +10 / -2 )

A shipload of fools in search of a ship...

8 ( +10 / -2 )

Find it rather amusing people in Japan are rallying for Trump. They should better be rallying for some of the issues in their own country which is slowly but surely sinking.

8 ( +10 / -2 )

Well, it's useless now because Trump can't tweet and brag about how Japan is with him. So this will just be one news, and no one will know.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Lazarus, yes, these guys!

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Too late.

Go home people.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

What the deuce?

They should have stormed the Diet or made trouble in Kasumigaseki.  Then we could call them insurgents and they could be listed as terrorists.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Japan Stands With Trump?

Some how I don't think so. More like 'the 120 of us out of 126,000,000 stand with Trump'!!

7 ( +10 / -3 )

Oh, I missed it!

Nice to see a group of free-thinking people for a change.

Nice to see a group of free-thinking people for a change.

Translation: ...adherents to QAnon - a conspiracy theory that posits that Trump is secretly fighting a global cabal of child-sex predators that includes prominent Democrats, Hollywood elites and "deep state" allies.

The far right do like their strange bedfellows. Only the other day, one was praising a holocaust denier, sorry, free thinker.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

Free thinker means believing lies you are told by the Dear Leader.

4 ( +6 / -2 )

Our free thinkers have come out with some fascinating lines, of late. Not content with the aforementioned examples, some of them admire Hitler's artwork as well.

Because, hey, they are "free thinkers", man. And nothing says free thinking more than the casual praise of/and legitimizing the folks who burnt people, books and artwork they thought to be inferior or "degenerate".

Oh, those right wing rascals! Always acting the edgelords.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

HRC was 100% right, these MAGA folks are a basket of deplorables.

3 ( +6 / -3 )

Face it. The last chance with four years of efforts to keep the U.S. is gone now. That country over there is lost territory taken over by communists within, Hispanics from the southern reopened wall and by all other ‘unity’-intruders from Muslim and African countries per plane and ships, all fastest possible accelerated with Biden’s signings already on the first day, just inaugurated. Wave a last goodbye and that’s it.

I didn't realize that there were like hidden supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump in Japan.

Switching gears: I know that former U.S. President Donald Trump and former Japanese Prime minister Shinzo Abe have good chemistry with each other. :‑)

4 ( +4 / -0 )

I am not sure what to do, go on a support a trump rally or watch paint dry.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

I though taking recreational drugs was illegal in Japan. Someone should find their stash and destroy it, it's obviously sizzling their little brains

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Who wants to bet that those people pictured at the recent QAnonsense ‘rally’ in Tokyo were amongst today’s ‘rally’?

It's called free speech.

Youtube is filled with Qanon crap in Japanese, in fact much more fake news than real news. Many Japanese conservative/right wing journalists and commentators bought into the conspiracy and spread it though SNS and youtube.

There are many players in this but some to note are Happy Science as written in some comments. Also many JP conservative sites refer to media such as Epoch Times, which is Falung Gong related and Washington Times, which is Unification Church. They also bought into many claims made by lynn wood, marjorie taylor greene, ted cruz, giuliani, and peter navarro.

Some are really stirring things up like Masako Ganaha with her youtube page and appearance on newsmax to claim ANTIFA was at capitol riot.

My parents bought into this conspiracy and currently dealing with this nightmare. If it's someone else, it's laughable but oh man, how hard it is to deal with parents in another dimension.

This is what happens when you don't learn English Japanese people, those auto translated bull crap youtube news will melt your brains with echo chamber!

That country over there is lost territory taken over by communists within,

How the far right wing think - to be centre right, is akin to communism.

Hispanics from the southern reopened wall and by all other ‘unity’-intruders from Muslim and African countries per plane and ships, all fastest possible accelerated with Biden’s signings already on the first day, just inaugurated. Wave a last goodbye and that’s it.

What the far right think of the rest of us (who aren't caucasian) - intruders, replacements, there goes the neighborhood, swarm, etc.

Nauseating and evil. And to be challenged at every opportunity.

About 120 people joined the march

More than those who showed up for Trump's farewell speech at Andrews.
