Today marked the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks, which claimed the lives of over 3000 Americans. While Japan has apologized as a country for their actions as a whole during WWII, they haven’t specifically apologized for the Pearl Harbor attacks, responsible for America’s entrance into WWII. Little did they know that was the moment their days became numbered.
History was made today when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the Pearl Harbor, becoming the first Japanese leader to do so. And what did Obama’s official mouthpiece do when he visited? He had some pretty absurd comments to make.
As BulletsFirst reported:
White House press secretary Josh Earnest stated: “If I were a World War II veteran who was drafted by the United States military to go and fight for our country overseas in the aftermath of the Pearl Harbor attack, I might feel quite embittered and I think it would be a perfectly natural and understandable human reaction to not be particularly satisfied with the words of the Japanese Prime Minister.”
But, Earnest said those people who feel “personal bitterness” should set aside their feelings for the greater good of the U.S.
“And so, yes, there may be some who feel personally embittered but I’m confident that many will set aside their own personal bitterness, not because they’re personally satisfied by the words of the Prime Minister, but because they recognize how important this moment is for the United States.”
Yeah guys, just get over it!
Can you imagine the reaction the liberal media would have if someone dared suggest that the Japanese just “get over” the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? We’d never hear the end of it, and probably get endless lessons on U.S. imperialism from the liberal media.
I don’t think Abe needs to apologize on Japan’s behalf – it’s not like he or anyone alive in Japan’s government is responsible for the Pearl Harbor attacks, but you’d think Earnest would be able to come up with a better request than the one he did.
