Izanagi-no-mikoto is the creator god of Nippon, the sacred home of the Japanese people and the abode of her gods as well. The Japanese consider themselves descendant of Amaterasu-ōmikami, the Sun-Goddess, also created, after a fashion, by Izanagi. The Emperor is worshiped as the closest in relationship to Amaterasu, though not a god himself. Japanese origin mythology does not take into account others than the Japanese, commonly called a closed universe origin mythology by anthropologists. Correspondingly then, the Japanese consider themselves separate from others in a fundamental way. The foreign might be interesting, and it may pay to be aware of the foreign, but it is always foreign. And that is why Japan rejects immigration and maintains its Japaneseness. It is by definition ethno-nationalist.
Izanagi and Izanami
Correspondingly, it has an innate resistance to the oldest threat to civilization, and the more current manifestations of that age old threat, Globohomo, also referred to as diversity or the neo-liberal global order. One of the hammers that Globohomo uses to subdue expressions of opposition, such as the war on Christendom, and ethno-nationalism, is the criminalization of so-called hate speech. Now the Japanese are not big on free-speech, though it has precious little regulation of speech, at least formally. Informally though, speech and behavior are tightly controlled by formal and informal social pressure from family, religion, neighbors, employers, and the general social compact, it is like living in a small village where everyone knows everyone and everyone knows what everyone else is doing. There is enormous social pressure to conform, which is one of the reasons why Japan is so successful and peaceful.
But Globohomo will not leave well enough alone. The world rulers want to make Japan less Japanese, if for no reason as an object lesson to others. To prove that their reach is global and no one or nation is safe. And that is what is happening in the Land of the Rising Sun. This is not the first report over the rise of so-called hate-speech laws in Japan. It is an ongoing threat.
A Japanese court has ordered a man to pay a fine of 300,000 yen for making derogatory remarks against a Korean resident of Japan in racist posts on Twitter.
The Kawasaki Summary Court on Friday imposed the fine after the 51-year-old man was found by prosecutors to have violated a local ordinance in Kanagawa Prefecture that bans troublesome behavior. It is the first time a criminal punishment has been imposed for hate speech under such an ordinance, the victim’s lawyer said.

Now, we can note with approval that there is still no hate-speech law in Japan, the violation was a general ordinance, a local one at that, designed to punish those who disturb the general peace, the closest statute in the the United States would be breach of the peace ordinances commonly used by local police to arrest crazy homeless people shouting in the streets at their demons and annoying loiterers who refuse to move along when asked by the cops.
Also of import, the local prosecutors at first thought nothing of this at first. The prosecutors likely thought that the annoying Korean was just causing her own problems.
According to the indictment, the man posted hateful remarks directed at Choi Kang I Ja, a 46-year-old resident of Kawasaki in the prefecture, on Twitter four times between June 2016 and September 2017. Choi’s lawyer said the two had never met.
The posts consisted of remarks such as “the craftiness of showing off their ethnicity pisses me off,” and “I won’t tolerate Koreans living carefree in Japan behind the shield of discrimination. I don’t recognize any of their rights.”
Police had referred the man to prosecutors for alleged intimidation. But they decided not to indict him in February.
The prosecutors obviously thought that insults on Twitter were not serious, nor worth their time. It is easy to block someone on Twitter, so it is like the old adage, if a tree falls in the woods, and no one is around, does it make a sound if it is not heard? It is not even clear from the story, perhaps deliberately so, if the Korean victim even received the insults on Twitter or if she was just mentioned to others. We don’t even know how many followers our Japanese patriot had. We also don’t know why Choi never just blocked him. Perhaps this was her intent all along, create or magnify the case as a pretext and stratagem, much as we now know that many nation busting Supreme Court cases were not organic, but deliberately created, much as we know now about Rosa Parks and Lawrence v. Texas.
As it turned out, Choi was a professional Korean, living in Japan, but ceaselessly complaining about how her host nation was “racist” against her.
Choi started being harassed online after she advocated against hate speech using her real name in March 2016. The harassment continued until police searched Ikeda’s house in December 2017, according to Morooka.

Abe Shōgun Not Backing Down
But there is a real issue here, and it is that Globohomo is using Koreans in Japan, Zainichi, as a battering ram to deracinate Japan, to make it less Japanese. Fortunately, at the moment, there is no general hate speech statute in Japan, and there is hope that Abe Shōgun is not sympathetic to such action, nor sympathetic to annoying gaijin throwing their weight around in Japan as the Zainichi so commonly do, but never integrating into Japan.
One prays that Abe Shōgun will resist the pressure from Globohomo and protect the Land of the Gods from the pernicious influence of these globalists. Izanagi and Amaterasu are calling on you to defend their people, ganbatte kudasai Abe Shōgun!

Only half in jest, I say it’s a sad day when a Japanese can’t insult a Korean with impunity.
