Right-wing psuedo-news propaganda but not Fox News?

No, dear Blubbergardeners, I'm talking about the Daily Mail, which is like Fox News only British and a newspaper. You can choose either of the first letters of its name and swap it for an F. Daily Fail, Faily Mail, Faily Fail, it doesn't matter.

In particular, there's one particular so-called columnist called Richard Littlejohn, who I just happened upon thanks to the UK's trending topics on twitter (I'm @DaveNebula, by the way [/shamelessplugging]). He thinks that because of the atrocities commited by the Japanese over 65 years ago, we shouldn't be mourning their dead following the earthquake.

No, seriously.

Honest.

He does.

It's true that Japan did some pretty horrific shit back in World War 2, but if we're in the mood for not forgiving or forgetting, I could point out that just off the top of my head, we joined America in an illegal war in Iraq. We also kinda had a little thing called the slave trade. Let us not forget the many heinous acts of the British Empire as a whole. After all America: You owe your country's existance to our douchebaggery. We have no moral high-ground whatsoever here by this idiot's rules.

    I expect for him to be receiving death threats soon. I also see him having a very difficult time getting a new job and generally being accepted by the public.

    Unless he lives in a very right-wing place?

    Touching on things like Pearl Harbor to abolish sympathy for the Japanese? What a pig.

    Here's one thing that wasn't mentioned in this blog: the Pearl Harbor thing was already balanced out at the end of WWII. Why? We dropped A-bombs on them. Seriously, ATOM BOMBS. An artificial destructive force that the world had never seen before then. We also "interned" (that is, imprisoned) Japanese-Americans thinking they were spies, when many of them didn't even speak a lick of Japanese. Besides, the government that commanded the Pearl Harbor attack and other attacks in WWII was effectively destroyed and replaced with a new one, if I remember correctly.

    Like I said, he's a columnist for one of the more prominent right-wing "news" publications in the UK. I don't see his job being jeopardised any time soon.

    It's not just Pearl Harbor, though. It might be one act that sticks out but it was hardly the worst thing the Japanese did during/prior to WW2. Plus, the nukes weren't a British act, even though we were/are allied to the USA.

    But also like I said, the UK has committed a load of atrocities in its history so we can't claim a moral high-ground.

    Sadly, Littlejohn is a professional bigot. He wouldn't recognise the validity of these points.
