"Democracy Now": Shock Doctrine in Japan: the Rightward Shift to Militarism, Secrecy in Fukushima’s Wake
The right wing nationalists in Japan (which begat WWII) and the right wing extremists in this nation through the Republican Party and their Teabag side car are both hazardous to one's health. Wingnut nationalists advocate for a war mongering militaristic strategy and its resultant nationalistic hegemony. It is dressed up in faux patriotic verbiage including an undercurrent of racist ideology. It will be responsible for the extinction of not only our nation but the extinction of man through the brutality of war and the ever present nuclear threat.
I copy Amy Goodman's "Democracy Now" here or below. "Democracy Now" is the only journalistic enterprise that gives one the whole truth with no glitz, glamour or gloss. She delivers news with a progressive view and with no care to or financed by corporate interests that pollute the playing field.
Today she broadcasts from Japan on a series of programming that touches on everything from the new militarism in Japan to the Fukishima nuclear disaster. The three year memorial of the Fukishima catastrophe is coming up in March.
We are all connected. The leaks in Fukishima, Amy reminds us, are still happening. It will, if it has not already, be coming to a shore near you.
THE TIME WILL DRAW CLOSE AND WE WILL CHOOSE. WILL OUR NATION LIVE BY PROGRESSIVE HUMANITARIAN BELIEF OR WILL IT DIE AT THE HANDS OF RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS AND RACIST TYRANTS? WE HAVE A CHOICE AND THE CHOICE WILL BE MADE. UNTIL THEN ALL OF US MUST WORK FOR THE ONLY PARTY, DESPITE ITS SHORTCOMINGS, THAT CAN USHER IN AN AGE OF PROGRESSIVEISM SO IN THE RICHEST NATION ON EARTH NO ONE GOES HUNGRY, NO ONE GOES WITHOUT A HOME, NO ONE GOES WITHOUT A JOB, NO ONE GOES WITHOUT CLOTHING, WITHOUT HEALTH CARE AND WITHOUT ALL THE NECESSITIES OF LIFE. WE MUST RIP THE REIGNS OF POWER OUT OF THE HANDS OF THE MERCILESS RICHEST 2% AMONG US.
IN 2014 THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY MUST TAKE BACK THE HOUSE, KEEP THE SENATE AND FREE US FROM INSUFFERABLE REPUBLICAN RACIST OBSTRUCTIONISM THAT REFUSES TO GIVE US A MINIMUM WAGE, REFUSES TO EXTEND UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS EVEN THOUGH THE WALL STREET THEY REPRESENT WERE THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GREATEST RECESSION SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION. KNOW WELL WHAT WE THE MANY HAVE SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF THE FEW AND WHO REAPED WHAT WE SOWED ONLY TO GIVE US DUST AND THE BACK OF THEIR HAND IN RETURN. COMPROMISE WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS IMPOSSIBLE. YOUR VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS THE ONLY THING THAT CAN SET US FREE OF THIS REPUBLICAN ALBATROSS!
