And once again, the US has shown the world it is a country populated by bigots and morons. Obviously not all Americans… although given the number of people supporting things like Romney, and the Tea Party, one does have to wonder.
I’ve written in the past how the bottom half of American society came out after the Japanese earthquake in 2011, calling it revenge for Pearl Harbor. And again, after Japan won the women’s World Cup, saying things like “You won the cup, but we nuked Hiroshima!”
Well, the USA won the Olympic gold medal for football, by beating Japan… and the scumbags crawled out of their swamps again. Not content with beating their chests and launching into the tedious, nauseous “USA! USA! USA!” jingoistic crap, they need to tear open old wounds… ironically on the anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing.
“USA Women take Gold over Japan… yeah take that Japan… that’s for Pearl Harbor!”
“Let’s just say that was payback for Pearl Harbor, Japan.”
That’s just two examples. It’s as if bombing the shit out of the country, killing millions of its citizens and nuking it into submission wasn’t enough. No, they have to wait 60-odd years and then win a football match, in order to really drive home the point.
Pride of place must go to a dribbling moron, called Alyssa Koenigsberg:
Suck it Japs! Haven’t felt this good about beating Japan since Hiroshima.
Now, considering the fact that the ignorant bitch looks about 18, and therefore wasn’t even around for the bombing of Hiroshima, I’m guessing she’s never felt good in her life. Probably because the filthy little racist doesn’t have the brain capacity to do so.
However, this isn’t all Americans thankfully. There are still good and decent people out there. However, it is a sign of the underlying stupidity, ignorance, bigotry and outright hatred that seems to be bubbling below the surface of American society.
It’s not just about comparing a football match to mass destruction and loss of life. It’s about advocating that a teenaged girl who stood up for what the Constitution says, be beaten, raped and murdered. It’s about denying a section of the population basic human rights because they are “different” to these morons. It’s about voting into power people who are openly bigoted. It’s about accusing the President of trampling on the Constitution, whilst preparing to do exactly the same when it comes to separating church and state.
It’s about being an ignorant moron.
And there more of them there are in America, the faster the country is going to turn into a backwards theocracy, run for the benefit of the corporations’ bottom line and not its citizens.
