As you all know, a week ago, an 8.9 earthquake hit off the eastern coast of Japan, unleashing a 23-foot tsunami that so far has claimed 7,000 lives, with another 10,000 still missing (and feared dead). Nearly 400,000 people–a good number of them elderly–have been displaced and are living in shelters. Meanwhile, the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant raised its crisis level from level 4 to 5 out of 7, which, according to CNN, “indicates the likelihood of a release of radioactive material, several deaths from radiation and severe damage to a reactor core.”
In the outpouring of sympathy and support for Japan that came from all quarters, there were those who thought what was happening in Japan was…HILARZ.
There were those who thought what was happening in Japan was from God.
There were those who seemed more concerned with the fate of the Japanese Yen than the Japanese people, and then there were those who felt very strongly that Japan finally got what was coming to them. They took to Twitter with their talk of “payback” and “karma” for Pearl Harbor, atrocities committed against other Asian countries during WWII, the killing of whales and dolphins.
And the people expressing these sorts of sentiments haven’t just been randos with too much time on their hands, they’ve been well-known and famous, with huge followings on Twitter, radio, and TV.
Below is a list of the last week’s most notable offenders:

Glenn Beck continues to uncover the ugly truth about the Obama administration’s dastardly plots to change this home of the free and land of the brave into… “Mao’s China.”
Dissenters, prepare to be tortured for pleasure, thrown into war, tossed into labor camps, and–if you’re lucky–chased out of the country.
Where does the totalitarian state of America begin? Apparently, with volunteerism–which should most certainly not be encouraged by influentials or public figures or leaders of any sort, because that’s propaganda, y’know, like in Mao’s China–where Disney also offered people free passes for a day of good-doing.
Beck argues that volunteering is only good if a person wanted to do it anyway. And even though most of us in his “most generous” America are selfish fucks–who don’t want to pay for our peers’ health care, weep at the thought of losing a tax break, guzzle as much gas/grease/booze as will fit into our bloated lives, and don’t care that this country is burning down to the ground while taking each one of us fat, egocentric, xenophobic, ignoramuses down with it–the most important thing in these tough times is that not to lift this country to a better place, but to assure that nobody’s makin’ us do fuckin’ nothin’ (Ya hear me, Obama?!!?)!!! Especially nothin’ good. Or fer free.
But that’s missing the point! We’re talking about Mao’s China here! Which is something to make light of, like Beck’s little stage friend here:

Maybe we’re wrong to judge Wendi Murdoch for her giggling evasian of New York Magazine’s prying questions about whether she likes or watches that fuckhole Glenn Beck.
“‘I can’t say!’ she said, laughing and covering her mouth, while leaving the New Yorkers for Children gala on Tuesday. ‘I have to let my husband say. I can’t say. Sorry!’
Sure, it seems she’s tee-hee-heeing her way through life. Okay, she seems like a brain-dead trophy wife. And of course, it’s pretty gross that she must defer to her husband for an opinion, lest her riches be snatched back and her ass drop-kicked back to China. We may think these are signs of weakness.
But listen, Wendi Murdoch has got to be strong-ass woman. It probably takes a lot to bite your lip, close your eyes, and get screwed frequently by
the Devil Ol’ wrinkly scrote Rupe. That shit can’t be pretty. Lady must have a stomach of steel.
We’re talking about old balls here, people (balls that have lived seven decades!). Old balls and Glenn Beck in one conversation, and Wendi Deng is still standing. Good lord, she deserves a goddamn medal.
I get a sick kind of thrill watching tea party footage on YouTube (same feeling washes over me when listening to my cousins lamely rant about Obama being a socialist, while unable to accurately define the word “socialism”). This week’s March on Washington was no exception–the ultimate assemblage of loud, confusing folks, touting clever catch phrases like “Fire Those Wacky Czars” and “Thank You Glenn Beck,” and protesting… well, just about everything.
Truth be told, I was rather unimpressed by most of the weekend protesterszzZZzZZz, who didn’t seem to bring anything really new or interesting to the tea party table!
But one guy from the selection above actually did catch my eye:
He got me thinking. I was like, OMG, I really struggle with learning languages. My Vietnamese is nil and my Spanish pretty spotty. How the fuck am I going to learn Chinese? We DEFINITELY need to stop the spending (whatever that means)!
But then I realized, if we DON’T stop the spending (whatever THAT means), maybe there’s a slim chance that at some point down the line, somebody might SPEND and BUY me Rosetta Stone for Mandarin. Then I could develop a sharp alternative speaking tongue! THEN Jen (who speaks Mandarin) and I (who will speak Mandarin) can trash annoying people (their outfits, their poor conversation skills, et cetera) with our secret language right in front of their face, whenever we want! How cool would that be?!?!?!? THEN I WOULD BE THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD!
I wish I could tell that dude “thank you” for calmly presenting both options and helping me cement my position on learning Chinese. I’m into it! Guys, let’s DO it (whatever that means)!!
