    I probably should've posted this after I got back to the states. But, if I'm sitting in a pub and some guy starts cusing me out with the most profane and poetic stream of insults followed by a black eye, I'll know who it is.
    Which pub ?

    Compare with the reaction you get when bringing up slavery to a die-hard southern nationalist. It is similar.
    If he hadn't made comments about Korea lying about Japanese atrocities or not caring about programs of systematic rape carried out by Japanese soldiers, we could say that he's just tired of it.

    But he's not "just tired of it". He is of the same mentality as the Japanese government & those soldiers during the war.

    This isn't the same as a Southerner flying the Confederate flag because he's got SOuthern Pride.

    This is the same thing as a NeoNazis flying the Swastika because he wants the Fourth Reich to arise & wouldn't feel bad if a couple Jews accidentally fell into an oven.

    That's Ryo Chonan.

    And that you, for some fucktarded reason, think that viewing Chonan's assholery as analogous to their assholery makes what he said better.

    So, yeah, there are assholes like that. But, no, that has no relevance to Chonan, and no, it doesn't make him less of an asshole.
    And said confused an ignorant assholes still believe this to be true to the very fiber of their being. Could be the same with Chonan and other Japanese nationalists.

    Not defending him, you understand, merely attempting to put his statements into a possible context.

    Ryo Chonan just did a flying scissor to heel hook combo on common sense and historical accuracy.
