    i always find it a little off how people will ignore the deaths related to policies that are enacted but lose their mind at assassinations

    both are political violence, but people really don't carry the same heat for the former as the latter

    "recruiting comfort women" is a hell of a way to soft sell "pressing sex slaves"

    Abe had plenty of problems/issues and was certainly hard right, but he wasn't Trumpy at all. He was at least a legitimate and relatively serious politican.

    Gross. Can we point out Abe's flaws without promoting a Putin and Milosovic apologist?

    they're called comfort women because that is the literal translation of the Japanese name for them. it's not the press, this is the correct term for these very specific women in this very specific time period.

    called it. their nationalism is off-the-charts crazy.

    i guess i get the sentiment that political assassinations aren't ideal but i do not at all agree that jokes about it aren't funny, particularly when an objectively awful person is the victim

    I’m not really interested in sifting through the differences anymore. They are straight up evil humans who profit by catering and stoking the desires of the more belligerently ignorant at best, and also evil at worst, humans of the world by exploiting and oppressing and villainizing the most vulnerable humans of the world.

    From the very bottom of my heart, fuck them all.

    Hell fuck a lot of political leaders who pretend to be progressive and liberal too for that matter.

    That’s fine. It’s not really related to my post. People can obviously be bad in different ways. Mitch McConnell is bad and has been horrible for America, but he’s smart and a very effective politician. Trump is awful and horrible, but he’s an idiot and relatively politically ineffective.

    If I’m trying to explain Abe to someone in an American context, he’s a McConnell, not a Trump.

    Calling for political assimilations is edgy even if the world would be a better place if they happen. The world would undeniably be a better place if Hinkley was a better shot. There are numerous individuals (whose death) via natural or violent ways would instantly be a positive. I can accept that writing that might be called edgy and I’m okay with that.

    I want to make it clear I am not a proponent of assassination/political violence simply that I encourage more right-wing chucklefucks to find themselves victimized by gun violence.

    It’s passive voice so it’s morally a gray area

    Is it really so wrong for me to wish more right wing nationalist would stumble and fall to the ground amidst a cloud of smoke and gun shots heard nearby by? Bc I feel like that’s pretty tame when I word it like that.

    The Moonies are/were heavily weaved into Japanese and Korean politics and Sun Myung Moon literally wanted to take over the world be called emperor. So, I think it still counts as political.
