Frankly, even IF hypothetically the massacre was a lie, the massacre is still a drop in the bucket compared to the other attrocities Japan committed, it's just like denying the holocaust

Posted in: Opponents of immigration in Japan, particularly political conservatives and members of right-wing groups, argue that Japan is a single ethnic group and cannot easily absorb people from other cultures. See in context
I don't disagree, it may not be "Easy" but that doesn't mean it's impossible. Getting a job isn't easy either, that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it or have one

de Blasio is ruining that beautiful city, crime is up, assault is up, murder is up, homelessness is out of control and running amok. Why not turn 42nd Street back to what it originally was. That's what he seems to want, an out of control liberal progressive free for all society without morals, conduct or any sort of accountability. Just disgusting!
Got any proof to back up the claims? Correlation is not causation and New York has always been like that, I don't know if Deblasio giving free pre-school to poor families is causing it

I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt considering that Paris, France is ranked the most rudest city on the Planet. I mean, I thought British people were mean, but it's a good thing I can't understand french, otherwise, they'd probably have a TON of insensitive and rude things to say, just liike at John Galliano

I think his main issue is that tens of thousands are heading to the US illegally and committing crimes when they arrive. Which they are. Hes right about not letting anyone with two legs and a heartbeat in. Theres a process.
There's no doubt that people who cross the border illegally are breaking the law, the problem is that many politicians then go on to make a nasty untrue caricature that most of these illegals are committing heinous and horrible acts. That is the part that is offensive and a down-right lie, because while some commit crimes, most of them don't....Also net illegal immigration in America has been zero for a very long time

It's not specific to China, the west doesn't give credit to the BIGGEST fighters of World War 2, which was Russia. The perception is that Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt were somewhat equals, when we all know that Joseph Stalin was Hitler's biggest and worst enemy, Russia suffered the most, this lack of appreciation is not China-specific

Conservatives from every other 1st world country already have common sense beliefs such as Gun Control, Universal Healthcare, and the existence of Man-Made Climate Change. It's the US that has special Republicans who are more right-wing than people like John Howard, Shinzo Abe, Margaret Thatcher, and Stephen Harper

If people want to argue about politics, then let them do it, but it becomes a problem when their hatred bleeds into non-political people's lives. People who are not political people and don't care about Korea and Japan shouldn't have to suffer when other people are fighting, keep them out of it. Now, I would also agree that maybe anti-korean sentiment has nothing to do with it, but it's got to affect it somehow, the question is to what degree

Well, I would imagine part of the reason why Japan is so low is because most of the conservatives are also extremely old, and it's not likely that a 78 year old conservative man would be willing to fight for his country. Japan has a huge old population
But that also takes into account the fact that Japan is pacifist and has no military.

Oh I don't know....I mean, Japan and many other countries supported America's invasion of the Iraq war, China was totally against the invasion of Iraq.....If there was anything in recent history that reminded people of nazi germany, it wasn't sea expansion, it was the Iraq war, Abu Ghraib, waterboarding, etc. not that human rights isn't a big issue in China, but China could never ever get away with invading another country like America did

Again, just TRY to imagine the President of Germany not recognizing WW2 war crimes against jews and for Angela Merkel to visit war shrines dedicated to Hitler, Goebbels, etc. and then not apologize for the holocaust. Its the 21st century ffs

The difference between Japanese war crimes and America's dropping of the bomb was that Japanese war crimes were committed with absolutely no provocation, America did not drop the bomb on Japan because they felt like it, they dropped it because it was a war, whether or not it was necessary, it's not like America had done it out of the blue for no reason, Japan had attacked the US, the US fought back in any way they could, that's different from when japan invaded several countries and tortured them all to death for no reason, the bomb was just a bomb, it killed alot of people instantaneously, I'd rather be vaporized in an instant than be raped, beaten, and then bayonetted or buried alive.

it's easy to pay attention to the negative posters and ignore the millions upon millions of people who had no problem with her ethnicity. Even in a super multi-cultural place like Canada or America, there are still racists around. But it would do Japan good to be around people of different races more to understand them

We should hold ALL victims of war with the equal amount of sympathy and respect, regardless of who they are, and while there is nothing wrong with honoring the victims of war against Japan, it's wrong for Japan to then honor the people who committed war crimes in other countries during world war 2
How would Japan like it if Curtis Lemay was honored as a hero in America? They can't feel sympathy for their victims but then ignore the victims of their action because they are not blood related.

Posted in: A simple comparison of Japan and Germany is inappropriate. The two countries differ in terms of what happened during the war, under what circumstances they engaged in post-war settlements, and which c See in context
Yes I agree, Germany was dirt poor and was constantly abused by the nations around them which lead to why they started fighting, as resentment to their horrible treatment to other people
Japan was angry they didn't get land, so they butchered and murdered people for their land. Killing people who did absolutely nothing to them in a more sadistic fashion than the Germans did to people they held responsible for all their pain and misery
BIG difference, one killed because they were pushed into a corner and was abused, the other killed more sadistically because they wanted stuff and things.

78% of Jewish people voted for Obama in 2008 and 69% of Jewish people voted for him in 2012. What does it say when most Republicans are the the RIGHT of Jewish people within America? This is all a pandering method by Boehner to spite Obama, but Jewish people know manipulation
George HW Bush's Secretary of State, James Baker once said "F*** the Jews, they don't vote for us"

Wow, you don't even see this type of stuff done to Black kids in America, I never see a group actually protest black schools and there are over 20 Million+ blacks in that country.
That's why every minority in Japan should pro-create more and more, create a pushback against the conservatives and their racist thought until it's politically toxic to do so, and I'm glad ABE criticizes it but that's common sense
