Yup another j-race story

Oy vey! Are the Elders of Zion setting up a crime syndicate in Japan? – MSN-Mainichi Daily News

Quotes:

” and contains no names and no photos, except something that looks like an old shot from a Nazi concentration camp, overlaid with the German “Juden Mafia” in gothic letters.”

“The Jewish mafia is in even better shape than the Turks,” asserts Jitsuwa Knuckles’ source. “A portion of the ones peddling accessories and fake brand goods on the streets in bar areas may be a part of this network.”

“The Jews are really skillful at knowing when to push and when to pull,” the source tells Jitsuwa Knuckles. “If they feel the police are getting to close, they stop selling the stuff themselves and subcontract to Iranians. So that way even if the Iranians get busted, they’re out of harm’s way.”

“Rather than acknowledge his inability to amass a single shred of evidence that would expose these conspiratorial Jews, “Dogen” instead maintains this only adds to the evidence of just how shrewd they really are.”

This from MSN and obviously taken the closing statements of the article, the point of it is to mock a Japanese publication posting what sounds like a totally ludcrious series of statements that begin by blaming “turks” for the “forienger crime wave” in Japan and ends with an examination of the “jewish” mafia. Studies show 80% of Japanese don’t have problems with immigrants living in Japan and while some visa reforms have made it easier for foriegners to live there, stories like this still can run a little shiver down your spine. While the story that Masuo is critiquing ran in a Japanese comic book from the looks of it, it still highlights A. the fascination with Japan’s racist past and B. the fact that Japanese themselves are beginning to get tired of the excessive battering the media takes at “foriengers”. It’s a plus and a minus in other words, one gets the feeling that Masuo is more of the average Japanese these days sceptical of such stories, but the undercurrent here is that race is still a scapegoating mechanism for a society that shows little interest in professing to include other cultures into it’s own.

    Why should Japan need to include other cultures into its own? Apparently, you’re from America where many liberals love their cultures homogenized, ecclectic, and ultimately irrelevant. From my point of view, this sort of forced homogenization is like a infection that has the effect of dissolving a nation’s identity. So again I ask, why should Japan have to abandon the pride of its dominant ethnicity to make way for a new culture that isn’t their own? Isn’t that akin to willingly having barbarians enter your walls for the sake of appearing tolerant? If the Japanese are far more content maintaining their identity, then why not respect their freedom to do so?

    “Why should Japan need to include other cultures into its own?”

    other cultures namely Canada, U.S., Europe, even most of Asia tolerate Japanese immigrants. Hence we let them in, but they don’t let others in. Secondly, it’s been pointed out that Japan would benefit greatly from better immigration (and they’re working towards that). As a wealthy nation is can attract forieng employees more talented or qualified than local ones.

    “Apparently, you’re from America where many liberals love their cultures homogenized, ecclectic, and ultimately irrelevant. From my point of view, this sort of forced homogenization is like a infection that has the effect of dissolving a nation’s identity. ”

    How so? Canadains have the easiet immigration in the world, but no one is argueing that it’s dilluting their culture.

    “So again I ask, why should Japan have to abandon the pride of its dominant ethnicity to make way for a new culture that isn’t their own? ”

    again I see little evidence that culture is diluted by immigrants, if anything immigrants seem to pick up on the dominant culture, and let’s be realistic, how can you keep people out of your country these days?

    “Isn’t that akin to willingly having barbarians enter your walls for the sake of appearing tolerant?”

    First, as I said in the article most Japanese profess to being tolerant. Secondly, your comment that Barbarians is a bit misleading, after all it’s not barbarians that would benefit from coming to Japan, it’s high cost of living would keep people who would parasite off government programs away, while allowing for canidates from other countries to not only prosper but improve Japan’s workforce and economic output.

    “If the Japanese are far more content maintaining their identity, then why not respect their freedom to do so? ”

    I don’t believe that letting foriengers somehow imperils the indentity of the Japanese, if anything strangling it with culture laws seems to do the trick.
