Honda blasts Japanese PM over failure to admit World War II-era sex slavery

Rep. Mike Honda

CONGRESS | DISTRICT 17 | Rep. Mike Honda invited 86-year-old Yong-Soo Lee to attend Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s speech Wednesday before Congress.

Seventy years past, Lee was one of over 200,000 so-called “comfort women” enslaved for sex by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.

However, during his address, Abe offered little acknowledgement of the wrongs by his country generations ago and the omission raised the ire of Honda,

“It is shocking and shameful that Prime Minister Abe continues to evade his government’s responsibility for the systematic atrocity that was perpetrated the Japanese Imperial Army against the so-called ‘comfort women’ during World War II, by not offering an apology during his speech today,” Honda said in a statement Wednesday.

Honda had previously called for Abe to issue an apology in a op-ed.

Although Abe did not explicitly issue an apology for the wartime atrocities against women during the war, he called for strengthening women’s rights in the region. But it wasn’t enough for Honda, who added, “without acknowledging the sins of the past, history will repeat itself.”

Honda, himself, also suffered during World War II, spending time during his youth in a Japanese-American internment camp in Colorado.

    Mike Honda is one of the most important members of the leadership of the Demagogue Party, the sleazy mafia of parasites and scam artists that pretends it is composed of great liberals and wonderful humanitarians, and as part of its scams regularly rants and raves against various injustices and supposed injustices by those who do not give it money, and therefore buy its silence, blindness, and PROTECTION.

    For instance, I used to work in a building in which it was standard procedure for the building ownership and management to use undocumented aliens as unwitting AND UNPAID AND UNPROTECTED dupes to perform various tasks, and including removing asbestos, and also illegally dumping asbestos into general purpose trash dumpsters.

    However since the building's primary owner was extremely politically connected to the Demagogue Party (he was a major source of large election campaign contributions and under the table bribes) and had close relationships with a lot of the big boys, and including Willie Brown, John Burton, Dianne Feinstein, Bill Lockyer, and Bill and Hillary Clinton, etc, therefore he was free to engage in any and all criminal activities he so desired, and including criminal activities that will lead to slow mass murder by way of mesothelioma and lung cancer.

    And over the last several decades, how many tens of millions of people have been murdered by US based tobacco companies, their crooked lawyers, and the public officials who have taken bribes, er, excuse me, I mean political contributions, from tobacco company executives and their sleazy lawyers!!!

    In other words, Mike Honda, and just like the majority of US politicians, and virtually all politicians who are members of the DP, is first and foremost a demagogue and big windbag,

    A few more details in regard to the above post:

    At that building, and whose primary owner was a close friend of Willie Brown, John Burton, Dianne Feinstein, Bill Lockyer, and the Clintons, etc, it was standard procedure, and even though the building pretended to be union, to have the majority of the janitorial and virtually all of the so called asbestos “abatement” done by undocumented aliens, and who were generally fired without pay, and under threat of being turned into Immigration for deportation if they did not just quietly disappear.

    However, Dianne Feinstein, Bill Lockyer, Willie Brown, and the Clintons, etc, all “knew” that the building's primary owner was a “wonderful” person and of the very highest “ethics” and “integrity”.

    In fact when the building's primary owner, and who was a huge organized crime money launderer in addition to being a major trafficker in undocumented aliens, decided he wanted to be the US Ambassador to Switzerland, Feinstein and the Clintons made it their personal mission to arrange it for him.

    So let's have Mike Honda tell us all about the “standards” and “ethics” of “liberal” politicians such as himself, Feinstein, and the Clintons, etc.
