I get that this is just a sampling of random assholes on Facebook, but still...the earthquake and Tsunami are payback for Pearl Harbor??!!! Fucking Pearl Harbor, from 70 years and at least three generations ago? ?And by the pictures it isn't as if this is grumpy old farts who haven't gotten over the war, it is grumpy young aasholes who probably are whinging cause they shut down some game servers in Japan. Seriously, these people are pathetic.

But do they deserve to be raped? Why is it so hard for you to come right out and say they don't?

And I can already hear the criticisms--- why do you bring that up in this thread, VT? I'll be accused of being "snarky" and a "shit-stirrer" just because I DARE to affirm that the Japanese don't deserve post-earthquake-and-tsunami rape. Well, it's obvious that the pro-rape mentality is still alive and well, isn't it?

A long time ago I resolved to stop reading threads that aren't about rape, because everyone dances around the issue and doesn't mention it, which is just another way to blame the victims, isn't it? Out of sight, out of mind? Well, FUCK that. Raping Japanese people is a CRIME. FULL STOP.

As long as there are still people like you who ONLY want to focus on the earthquake, because evidently raping Japanese people is "A-OK," we have a long, long way to go. I will NOT be silenced!

Pearl Harbor didn't even come to mind when the earthquake and tsunami hit on Friday, and didn't still after that until I came across that picture in another thread about Japan over the weekend. It didn't occur to me that people would even hold a sort of grudge that they would mention it, whether they're trying to be funny or not. I guess it's like the Westboro church members who can find anything in a person's life to disqualify them, in Westboro's collective mind, from a peaceful life (or death).

Since very few people alive now in Japan were alive in 1942, and even fewer now alive were involved in planning or executing the Pearl Harbor attack, the only way today's Japanese citizens' misfortune could be considered "payback" is if you hold a grudge for a very long time and think that children should be held responsible for parents' actions.

One person said we could learn things from the Japanese, as they politely waited for aid instead of raiding stores. Then someone came out of nowhere with a rant about Pearl Harbor and how we don't need to learn anything from them. After that I just came back here.

Weirdly, when I was a Christian way back in the 1960s, I don't remember anyone blaming natural disasters on the Creator's unhappiness with some segment of Humanity. As far as I remember, we sent food, medicine and assistance along with Bibles and evangelists. The former was emphasized because these folks (think the Biafra disaster as an example) were DYING. It is hard to 'save' someone who doesn't understand your language and is in the midst of organ failure.

I have always wondered what happened to Christianity between the mid 1960s and now.
It used to be a gentle and loving religion (at least in my small community).
Now, it is synonymous with hatefulness and cruelty.

I heard an atheist call a woman an ugly bitch. Now, atheism is synonymous with hatefulness and crualty.

Why?Let's not jump to conclusions. Was the woman an ugly bitch?

I do! Of all the unspeakabe atrocities they commited between 1931-45, the only one they really get remembered for is Pearl Harbor. It must be so disappointing for them.

They must feel like Jan, and just want to shout, "Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!"

Am I am asshole for posting this joke (http://i.imgur.com/6pfd6.jpg) on my Facebook the morning the news broke?

Is my wife an asshole for changing her status to "Surf's Up!"?

Weirdly, when I was a Christian way back in the 1960s, I don't remember anyone blaming natural disasters on the Creator's unhappiness with some segment of Humanity. As far as I remember, we sent food, medicine and assistance along with Bibles and evangelists. The former was emphasized because these folks (think the Biafra disaster as an example) were DYING. It is hard to 'save' someone who doesn't understand your language and is in the midst of organ failure.

I have always wondered what happened to Christianity between the mid 1960s and now.
It used to be a gentle and loving religion (at least in my small community).
Now, it is synonymous with hatefulness and cruelty.

Why? The hateful ones get all the press. The ones you knew are still sending relief but it doesn't get on CNN.

Because we know we're smarter than you. *shrug*

That thar was a joke son. Actually I was the atheist in question. Also you're a fuck wad and your penis is tiny and woman laugh at it. Especially your wife. Your attitude is why I find most other atheists pieces of shit and now that is what I shall think of you every time I see you post.

Yes, yes she was.

Yes, but tomorrow you'll still be smart, and I'll have a bigger penis!

...I think that's attributed to Churchill, after he bought those pills from that spam.

An Aussie went on a local Thai Web board to say he was happy this was happening to Japan, because of how Aussie and Kiwi POWs were treated in WWII. That explains a lot about why I don't like to participate on local Web boards. These guys are not uncommon.

What about this woman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TeOdSmlacqY)? I really wonder why the extremist types seem to be so fond of the gore. I also wonder how she missed that little tidbit of fact that the population of Japan are not all atheists--there are even Christians there, too.

I wonder what those "It's payback!" folks will think about their future when prospective employers check their social media sites, notice those posts, and then decide they don't need such morons in their employ. Ah, a bright side to it!

They aren't likely the sort of people whose employers check social media sites. They are the sort of people who would apply for jobs for which an ability to think clearly would make you overqualified and likely to quit through boredom.

Well, it turns out that woman's hobby was making "troll videos." (http://www.tntmagazine.com/tnt-today/archive/2011/03/15/tamtampamela-video-god-is-so-good-for-japan-s-earthquake-and-tsunami.aspx) She got quite the backlash from that one, some of the backlash criminal (as in actually illegal). The criminal stuff is unacceptable.

Payback for Pearl Harbour ? Hardly.

Japan may have been built over an old Indian cemetary however.

Both my Grandfather and Great-Grandfather were held in inhuman conditions by the Japanese as (civilian) prisoners of war. I still find this "payback or pearl harbour" pretty disgusting.

As well as my father-in-law who was actually in the misery of the South Pacific Theater fighting against the Japanese during WW2; you'd think he would join the train ride to Paybackville.

Nope......he was just as saddened by the catastrophe there too as we were.

Well, if there're idiots who blame Jew for killing Jesus, which happened nearly 2000 years ago, blaming those Kraut-Japs for Pearl Harbor isn't too much of a stretch for their pea-sized brains.

That's because your father-in-law is a decent human being with a functioning brain.

An old Ainu cemetary, you mean.

Gay? No one in Japan is gay. Just ask anyone (except that bartender with the giant rainbow and bear flags behind him).

Hey, I have a Toyota! So does my husband! Does that mean we both have to get gay married?

I have a Toyota too... marry me and let's have an open marriage? You can have sex with your husband.

Yeah, it's all 4 shots Lloyd Bridges compiled together -- harmless, although now I can imagine some government officials in Japan probably saying/doing the same thing.
