Japan Needs ‘Foreigner Blood’ Like Naomi Osaka’s

Japan embraced ‘half’-Japanese and Haitian-American the new tennis superstar after she beat Serena Williams, but Japan’s government remains xenophobic. That must change.

    This entire article is calling Japanese racist. "Leftists only attack whites!" is a nonsense claim. Leftists fear any kind of hierarchy and authority, white societies just happen to have the most leftists.

    (((Jake Adelstein))) has devoted his entire journalist career to attacking Japan. His articles are all filled with Talmudic gaslighting mixed with foaming-at-the-mouth rage, no less than any SJW freak might direct at whites. Just Google his name and read them.

    Because a woman who is half-black and half-Japanese won a tennis tournament, the Japanese should permit and cheer an invasion of millions of low-IQ blacks from Haiti and sub-Saharan Africa, turning Tokyo into Chicago or Osaka into Baltimore. Do Adelstein and his ilk ever decry the lack of "diversity" in Haiti and sub-Saharan Africa, or Detroit and Baltimore, impoverished and hellish countries and cities that would benefit from and be improved by a mass influx of whites and "northeast Asians"?

    Wouldn't worry too much about this Adelstein fellow.

    It's Asia.

    If you've ever lived in Asia anywhere (other than the Philippines - a particularly Western-loving place, and Christian to boot), you would know that the moral hectoring of outsiders , broadly defined as anyone "not of their race", or of mixed parentage, or Asians who have foreign attitudes/leanings or culture/religion, are mostly ignored, and in fact invite snickering from the locals.

    Asians find the lecturing of those they consider alien outsiders entertaining, at best, but never take them seriously. That is most certainly the case with this writer.

    Their highest elites, leaders and tycoons are not eager to be considered "cosmopolitan". They hold the self-righteousness of Westerners to be of zero account, which renders them unable to be influenced, made to feel guilty, or shamed. As with the elites, so with the broad Asian population.

    Well, let’s say that except for the pontificating, the article has correct info.

    Jake Adelstein has been an investigative journalist in Japan since 1993. Considered one of the foremost experts on organized crime in Japan, he works as a writer and consultant in Japan and the United States. He is also an advisor to NPO Polaris Project Japan, which combats human trafficking and the exploitation of women and children in the sex trade. He is the author of Tokyo Vice: An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan (Vintage) and the forthcoming The Last Yakuza: A Life In The Japanese Underworld.

    How many goys does Ha'aretz* have working on its staff? And, if it actually has any, how often does it give them a column lambasting Israeli immigration policy for not being more "open" and "diverse"? Just a silly question (or two).

    Talmudic gaslighting
     
    Investigative journalist, Fan of Thomas Paine, Zen Buddhist Priest, Paladin. Social Justice Ninja

    Sounds just like he has been down at the Yeshiva every day learning "gaslighting".

    However, amidst the celebratory mood, there is an undercurrent of online chatter that seems to disqualify Osaka’s “Japanese-ness” due to her not “looking Japanese enough” or not speaking Japanese well enough.
     
    OTOH, conflating someone not even speaking the language properly with her being discriminated against due to some (imaginary) and bizarre one drop disqualification is dishonest.

    There isn’t much recent data on how the people of Japan define being Japanese―maybe it’s a poll no one wants to do. We did our best on Twitter, in Japanese. In 24 hours, out of 682 people who responded, those who felt it was nationality were 46 percent; 30 percent felt it involved accepting Japanese values and being a member of Japanese society. Another 16 percent voted that if you lived in Japan permanently and paid taxes, you were Japanese. Only 9 percent considered it to be a race.

    That’s a surprisingly tolerant and inclusive view of Japaneseness
     
    Whereas in America that would be a literal Nazi view of Americaness. Everyone knows an American is anyone who wants to be one and won't exclude anyone else except on this basis.

    Japanese (maybe most Northeast Asians) are close to Whites.
  8. Reina Grace Chelberg, a 27-year-old hafu who works for the United Nations, was happy to see Osaka win, but feared that no matter what happened, the message would get mangled. “For Japan to become more progressive, the discussion shouldn’t be about half-Japanese or not, but simply focus on being happy that a representative from Japan led the victory.”

    Can we at least have an explanation for why Japan needs to be more progressive, or is that simply assumed by all enlightened, right-minded citizens?

    Interestingly, Mr. Adelstein is keen to police language but uses the dubious term “mixed-race Japanese” himself in his article, as opposed to the politically correct “biracial” or “bicultural.”

    It is not at all like your representation, but to go back to the fiftth century, founding of the Imperial system, of the nobility 60% were Korean (and there were four polities in the Korean peninsula at the time, two of those made up the vast majority), 20% Chinese, and 20% native.

    In the south, a population close to malay (meaning the ethnic group), largely already subdued, in northern Honshu and Hokkaido, the Ainu were still the main populations. Subduing and tricking them took over a thousand years.

    This is not to argue for Jewish ideas of diversity, just to give a true picture of the situation at the founding of the state.

    What is the criteria for "good guys"? Tokyo Vice is an interesting and exciting book, and its explicit goal is to show Tokyo in the ugliest possible light. A "Tel Aviv Vice" talking about organ harvesting, Ukrainian "models," ecstacy, fake charities, and scatological warfare (which is Jerusalem but close enough) would not make it into an English edition (though if it did I'd buy multiple copies).

    Funny thing about this: I heard (from an old Japanese-Brazilian) that they are less accepting of the full-blooded Nippo-Brazilians (who mostly don't speak contemporary Japanese and definitely can't read it) than of the more Western-looking gaijin.

    In a way, they expect culture to come with the blood; so they expect non-Japanese to be hesitant in speaking Japanese, incapable of learning the kanji, and overall unable to fully fit in Japanese society.

    OTOH, they expect that a Japanese-looking person will be... Japanese. When they discover that their South American brethen are basically South Americans in terms of culture, they get shocked.

    He ain't Prime Minister of Japen, either, but seems perfectly content telling the Japanese what to do: 'Japan's immigration policy "must" change.' Not "should" change, but "must" change.

    Is he a Japanese citizen yet? If he isnt what are the odds of him ever becoming one? My guess is he would have an easier time becoming a citizen of Israel than of Japan, even though his bio doesn't mention him ever living in Israel. So why not venture forth with more opinions on tbe immigration policy of a country where he could quite easily become a citizen?

    The problem isn't that Israel would actually listen to him. All the American Jews we ask to support open borders for Israel could easily call our bluff by saying they support the idea. They know Israel wouldn't change its policy. They don't do it because they don't want to admit that Israel has an utterly racist immigration policy that they don't think any country but Israel should be allowed to have.

What are the chances Osaka is culturally more American than either her parents, yet claims Japanese identity? (Apparently nationalism is okay so long as it's not American nationalism.)

    And when, exactly, did her father register her with the Japan Tennis Association? As a 3 y/o?

    "Trump to Cap Refugees Allowed Into U.S. at 30,000, a Record Low"

    Why is it still so high?

    It's not just about reducing the current number of refugees we're admitting. It's about utterly destroying taxpayer-funded advocacy of open borders. All those refugee agencies resettling these people get funding from the US government. They use the money for resettlement, sure, but their taxpayer-funded jobs then allow them to lobby - in the press, in Congress, and elsewhere - for more refugees. Reduce the number of refugees and you reduce the number of resettlement agency employees, which reduces the number of people *advocating* for more refugees.

    Except it's 30,000 too high. And the next Demorat will open up the floodgates.

    No even just "progress" requires zero. Then you start to starve off the NGO infrastructure doing refugee resettlement--a parasite living off the taxpayers while killing them. Which will make it--a bit--harder for the Democrat scum to fire it back up.

For the Japanese Yomiuri, not the English version, and not as a keiyaku shaiin. He started out covering high school baseball in the boondocks, going door to door after crimes to try to shake out witnesses, and boring stuff like that. He managed to survive for, I think, eight years, ending up as one of Yomiuri's reporters at the Tokyo metropolitan police "press club." I came to Japan at about the same time as he did and know what a big deal that is.

    If people go from here and attack him on Twitter without giving him any context or nuance, he'll treat you badly. But as I said, he's a good guy, in various senses. He has been on the receiving end of trolls and a particularly bad stalker (C.J.) who makes Gamer Gate guys look like pikers, so Adelstein is a little fast to the trigger when confronted. I recommend dealing with him in a civil manner. I would characterize him as a Malcolm Gladwell type: smart, knowledgeable, a tendance to exagerate and make facts fit patterns he likes, but not to such a great extent that his views are worthless.

    There's used to be a clip online of Adelstein's Daily Show appearance when his book came out. He also was briefly a regular on a Japanese show where foreign press commented on Japanese events, but I don't know if those are online.

    I don't think he really has any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration. His article was a piece of pumped out clickkbait. If you are able to identify his stalker, a potential motive for the piece may present itself to you: In a particular sense that is not immediately obvious it will probably infuriate his stalker.

    Sounds just like he has been down at the Yeshiva every day learning “gaslighting”.

    However, amidst the celebratory mood, there is an undercurrent of online chatter that seems to disqualify Osaka’s “Japanese-ness” due to her not “looking Japanese enough” or not speaking Japanese well enough.

    OTOH, conflating someone not even speaking the language properly with her being discriminated against due to some (imaginary) and bizarre one drop disqualification is dishonest.

    There isn’t much recent data on how the people of Japan define being Japanese―maybe it’s a poll no one wants to do. We did our best on Twitter, in Japanese. In 24 hours, out of 682 people who responded, those who felt it was nationality were 46 percent; 30 percent felt it involved accepting Japanese values and being a member of Japanese society. Another 16 percent voted that if you lived in Japan permanently and paid taxes, you were Japanese. Only 9 percent considered it to be a race.

    That’s a surprisingly tolerant and inclusive view of Japaneseness

    Whereas in America that would be a literal Nazi view of Americaness. Everyone knows an American is anyone who wants to be one and won’t exclude anyone else except on this basis.

    I don't think the objective is getting Japan to fall for it. I think the objective is to get Japan to make a few conciliatory gestures which can subsequently magnified and exaggerated by the media in the west to PROVE decisively to the deplorables that Asian countries are open to diversity and immigration. One sees it already as Japan makes it easier for caregivers to obtain long-term visas and such. The Mainstream Media picks it up and runs with it, ignoring the fact that Japan has accepted a grand total of 13 refugees in the last decade. (No, that's not factual) I like to invoke the Korean Jeju Island case as my evidence for the desire of Asian countries to allow "refugees" in thier countries. Desiring to develop Jeju Island as a tourist destination, the Koreans did away with visa requirements for the island, offering a landing visa instead. A group of Yemenis who had enough money to flee the violence propogated by the Saudi and the US in their nation flew to Malaysia to seek refugee status. The Malaysians weren't having any of it, so the Yemenis flew to Jeju Island, where they demanded refugee status, a place to live, food, jobs, etc. The people on Jeju Island freaked out; all of Korea freaked out. The landing visa laws were changed in a week. Such rational defense of borders, nations and cultures should be the norm.

    I don’t think he really has any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration.
     
    Well, you're half right. He has deeply held opinions. Through through, not so much. Just for this article alone.

    Let's start with the title:

    Japan Needs ‘Foreigner Blood’ Like Naomi Osaka’s

     

    In case you missed the subtlety, that's a very clear immigration stance.

    But apart from ebullient praise for super athletes, Japan’s xenophobia runs deep, and it’s something the country will have to conquer if it hopes to be a winning nation—not just an opportunistic fanboy.
     
    By all means, dissolve an ancient people and culture through miscegenation to chalk up a few more victories by "citizens" who share little to none of the original people's genes.

    In many ways, Osaka’s victory has raised questions about what it means to be Japanese and whether Japan is ready to create the multiracial society it needs to survive and thrive as a nation. It really does need to do this—the numbers says as much, but we’ll get to that later.

     

    Um. This is kind of an immigration stance.

    Years ago, a drunken official in Japan’s ministry of education, culture, sports, and science told me the official color of the Japanese people was mugi-iro (wheat-colored), “not yellow,” and then lectured me on the purity of the Japanese bloodline, as opposed to the American mongrels. Presumably, when on Sept. 5, Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso, also known for his admiration of Hitler, praised Japan for being “the only colored country in the Group of Seven,” he meant that color. Unfortunately, Naomi Osaka isn’t quite wheat-colored, nor are all the people living in Japan.
     
    Hey, Jake's a Jew. How can he not bring up Hitler. I mean, it works so well in the West. Jews are getting lazy. They haven't changed their playbook in 50 years. Then again, it works, so why fix what ain't broken. But Jake seems to be getting a bit annoyed that it doesn't work against this team.

    Even in what appears to be an ethnically homogenous society, especially one that values conformity and harmony, there are layers and layers of discrimination and xenophobia. Third- and fourth-generation Korean-Japanese, many of them descendants of slave labor from Japan’s colonial period, are blamed for every crime, accident, and problem in Japan. Many mainland Japanese view Okinawans as “lazy” and not purely Japanese; they are also subject to shoddy treatment.
     
    Well, then by all means, let's bring in more groups so we can have even more trouble. Maybe Jake should turn the problem on its head. Inverse, always inverse, Jake.

    You can still find bookstores with tomes on how the Jews are destroying Japan, in a country where the population of permanent resident Jews is said to be less than 2,000.
     
    I can't imagine why Jews keep getting kicked out countries. They're so shy and just want to get along.

    With a dwindling population but a slightly increasing number of international marriages, Japan has to decide how to combat racism, embrace multiculturalism and tolerance if it wants to survive.

    ... It’s a matter of mathematics.
     
    See, it's just math. How can you argue with that. You like math, don't you?

    As far back as the year 2000, the United Nations Population Division in a paper, “Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Aging Populations?” noted, “In order to keep the size of the working-age population constant at the 1995 level of 87.2 million, Japan would need 33.5 million immigrants from 1995 through 2050.”
     
    And the United Nations has never been wrong about anything. Also, that's not math, it's modeling. They're different. Finally, why does Japan have to keep its working age population at 1995 levels. What if it fell to 1985 or 1975 levels. Was Japan a hellhole in 1985 or 1975?

    Seriously, Jake is an idiot.

    Japan isn’t even close to the number of immigrants the U.N. said it would need in 2000. The Nakagawa proposal would be a good start, if Japan actually wants to survive.
     
    Really, the Japanese will just disappear off the face of the earth if they don't import 10 million people? Really. Is that a fact, Jake? Is that math? A hundred years from now, Japan will be an uninhabited island. Really?

    I’d have to say I’m not completely objective on the issue. I have two hafu-lings,
     
    I'm shocked to discover that Jake is talking his book. Stunning.

    Changing the laws to recognize multi-nationality wouldn’t be hard. It would certainly be much easier than a vigorously opposed attempt to rewrite Japan’s constitution. Discouraging racism, embracing diversity, and welcoming more people to Japan–the government can do that. They even had a plan to do so, a decade ago.
     
    Nope. Jake doesn't have any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration. Again, you're half right.

    I don't know who you are, anon, but your statement implies that you're an idiot.

    Doing a survey in Japan about what they think of Jews is absurd. It's like asking Americans what they think of dark matter or the Sumerians. Jews are just not something Japanese really know, think, or care much about. No poll is going to come up with any meaningful result. It will be like when a Mormon missionary approaches them. Japanese smile, are polite, and then extract themselves and walk away.

    There were some weird sensationalistic books about Jews twenty or thirty years ago, but they were on the level of Erich von Daniken books, and were entertainament not taken seriously by the few people who read them.

    This is one of many reasons I think Americans should have to spend a couple of years abroad during their twenties. Even intelligent Americans are kind of stupid when it comes to topics that involve foreeign countries. I think that living in any foreign country (maybe not the Five Eyes) makes you much more adept at interpreting information about any other foreign country, because you have one piece of data about how wrong stuff is about where you lived. Reading journalism about Japan has made me suspicious about stories about France, for instance. And living abroad adds nuance to Americans' jingoism because you see that different ways of doing things can actaully work out just fine in practice.

    An extreme example is the cartoonish way North Korea is perceived in the U.S. vs. what you know about it living in a country whre the news regularly covers quotidian events there on the ground.

    Sounds just like he has been down at the Yeshiva every day learning "gaslighting".

    However, amidst the celebratory mood, there is an undercurrent of online chatter that seems to disqualify Osaka’s “Japanese-ness” due to her not “looking Japanese enough” or not speaking Japanese well enough.
     
    OTOH, conflating someone not even speaking the language properly with her being discriminated against due to some (imaginary) and bizarre one drop disqualification is dishonest.

    There isn’t much recent data on how the people of Japan define being Japanese―maybe it’s a poll no one wants to do. We did our best on Twitter, in Japanese. In 24 hours, out of 682 people who responded, those who felt it was nationality were 46 percent; 30 percent felt it involved accepting Japanese values and being a member of Japanese society. Another 16 percent voted that if you lived in Japan permanently and paid taxes, you were Japanese. Only 9 percent considered it to be a race.

    That’s a surprisingly tolerant and inclusive view of Japaneseness
     
    Whereas in America that would be a literal Nazi view of Americaness. Everyone knows an American is anyone who wants to be one and won't exclude anyone else except on this basis.

Nonetheless if the game is to win by best appeal to authority then strawman and ad hominem style arguments are obviously irrelevant.

But they love 1990s alternative rock because that’s what their tennis friends at the academy in Florida loved. I believe they both play electric guitar, which is pretty funny for girls from Compton.

    There are practically no Japanese in Florida, so there’s nobody to talk to.

    Doing a survey in Japan about what they think of Jews is absurd. It’s like asking Americans what they think of dark matter or the Sumerians. Jews are just not something Japanese really know, think, or care much about. No poll is going to come up with any meaningful result. It will be like when a Mormon missionary approaches them. Japanese smile, are polite, and then extract themselves and walk away.

    There were some weird sensationalistic books about Jews twenty or thirty years ago, but they were on the level of Erich von Daniken books, and were entertainament not taken seriously by the few people who read them.

    This is one of many reasons I think Americans should have to spend a couple of years abroad during their twenties. Even intelligent Americans are kind of stupid when it comes to topics that involve foreeign countries. I think that living in any foreign country (maybe not the Five Eyes) makes you much more adept at interpreting information about any other foreign country, because you have one piece of data about how wrong stuff is about where you lived. Reading journalism about Japan has made me suspicious about stories about France, for instance. And living abroad adds nuance to Americans’ jingoism because you see that different ways of doing things can actaully work out just fine in practice.

    An extreme example is the cartoonish way North Korea is perceived in the U.S. vs. what you know about it living in a country whre the news regularly covers quotidian events there on the ground.

    I happen to know quite a few 2nd, and even 3rd gen American kids with ethnic heritage from a European nation many times smaller than Japan, with often no one around but their mother to speak with in the mother's native language. Their language skills in their mothers' native language are more than adequate. It's more about the mother's (or in one, the father's) attitude towards retaining their language and heritage than anything else. In most cases, as the mother was born and raised in the U.S., her first language is English, with excellent, but not quite native-like level of ability in the ancestral language. And yet their 3rd gen kids speak and write it just fine.

    In one exceptional case, the child isn't even theirs, but is adopted from Africa, and yet speaks the (US-born) mother's ancestral European language fluently.

    So what's Osaka's excuse, having actually lived in Japan during the most important language-formative period of her life and being a hafu? Does she really identify as Japanese, or as an AfAm, as is typical with blacks or half-blacks in the U.S. regardless of their parents' ancestry? (cf. Kaepernick).

    Adelstein is a smart and talented guy with an interesting life. His book Tokyo Vice recounts how he read the Yomiuri every day for a year while attending, I think, Sophia University, then took their exam and was hired as a reporter seishaiin. For the Japanese Yomiuri, not the English version, and not as a keiyaku shaiin. He started out covering high school baseball in the boondocks, going door to door after crimes to try to shake out witnesses, and boring stuff like that. He managed to survive for, I think, eight years, ending up as one of Yomiuri's reporters at the Tokyo metropolitan police "press club." I came to Japan at about the same time as he did and know what a big deal that is.

    If people go from here and attack him on Twitter without giving him any context or nuance, he'll treat you badly. But as I said, he's a good guy, in various senses. He has been on the receiving end of trolls and a particularly bad stalker (C.J.) who makes Gamer Gate guys look like pikers, so Adelstein is a little fast to the trigger when confronted. I recommend dealing with him in a civil manner. I would characterize him as a Malcolm Gladwell type: smart, knowledgeable, a tendance to exagerate and make facts fit patterns he likes, but not to such a great extent that his views are worthless.

    There's used to be a clip online of Adelstein's Daily Show appearance when his book came out. He also was briefly a regular on a Japanese show where foreign press commented on Japanese events, but I don't know if those are online.

    I don't think he really has any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration. His article was a piece of pumped out clickkbait.

    I don’t think he really has any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration.

    Well, you’re half right. He has deeply held opinions. Through through, not so much. Just for this article alone.

    Let’s start with the title:

    Japan Needs ‘Foreigner Blood’ Like Naomi Osaka’s

    In case you missed the subtlety, that’s a very clear immigration stance.

    But apart from ebullient praise for super athletes, Japan’s xenophobia runs deep, and it’s something the country will have to conquer if it hopes to be a winning nation—not just an opportunistic fanboy.

    By all means, dissolve an ancient people and culture through miscegenation to chalk up a few more victories by “citizens” who share little to none of the original people’s genes.

    In many ways, Osaka’s victory has raised questions about what it means to be Japanese and whether Japan is ready to create the multiracial society it needs to survive and thrive as a nation. It really does need to do this—the numbers says as much, but we’ll get to that later.

    Um. This is kind of an immigration stance.

    Years ago, a drunken official in Japan’s ministry of education, culture, sports, and science told me the official color of the Japanese people was mugi-iro (wheat-colored), “not yellow,” and then lectured me on the purity of the Japanese bloodline, as opposed to the American mongrels. Presumably, when on Sept. 5, Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso, also known for his admiration of Hitler, praised Japan for being “the only colored country in the Group of Seven,” he meant that color. Unfortunately, Naomi Osaka isn’t quite wheat-colored, nor are all the people living in Japan.

    Hey, Jake’s a Jew. How can he not bring up Hitler. I mean, it works so well in the West. Jews are getting lazy. They haven’t changed their playbook in 50 years. Then again, it works, so why fix what ain’t broken. But Jake seems to be getting a bit annoyed that it doesn’t work against this team.

    Even in what appears to be an ethnically homogenous society, especially one that values conformity and harmony, there are layers and layers of discrimination and xenophobia. Third- and fourth-generation Korean-Japanese, many of them descendants of slave labor from Japan’s colonial period, are blamed for every crime, accident, and problem in Japan. Many mainland Japanese view Okinawans as “lazy” and not purely Japanese; they are also subject to shoddy treatment.

    Well, then by all means, let’s bring in more groups so we can have even more trouble. Maybe Jake should turn the problem on its head. Inverse, always inverse, Jake.

    You can still find bookstores with tomes on how the Jews are destroying Japan, in a country where the population of permanent resident Jews is said to be less than 2,000.

    I can’t imagine why Jews keep getting kicked out countries. They’re so shy and just want to get along.

    With a dwindling population but a slightly increasing number of international marriages, Japan has to decide how to combat racism, embrace multiculturalism and tolerance if it wants to survive.

    … It’s a matter of mathematics.

    See, it’s just math. How can you argue with that. You like math, don’t you?

    As far back as the year 2000, the United Nations Population Division in a paper, “Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Aging Populations?” noted, “In order to keep the size of the working-age population constant at the 1995 level of 87.2 million, Japan would need 33.5 million immigrants from 1995 through 2050.”

    And the United Nations has never been wrong about anything. Also, that’s not math, it’s modeling. They’re different. Finally, why does Japan have to keep its working age population at 1995 levels. What if it fell to 1985 or 1975 levels. Was Japan a hellhole in 1985 or 1975?

    Seriously, Jake is an idiot.

    Japan isn’t even close to the number of immigrants the U.N. said it would need in 2000. The Nakagawa proposal would be a good start, if Japan actually wants to survive.

    Really, the Japanese will just disappear off the face of the earth if they don’t import 10 million people? Really. Is that a fact, Jake? Is that math? A hundred years from now, Japan will be an uninhabited island. Really?

    I’d have to say I’m not completely objective on the issue. I have two hafu-lings,

    I’m shocked to discover that Jake is talking his book. Stunning.

    Changing the laws to recognize multi-nationality wouldn’t be hard. It would certainly be much easier than a vigorously opposed attempt to rewrite Japan’s constitution. Discouraging racism, embracing diversity, and welcoming more people to Japan–the government can do that. They even had a plan to do so, a decade ago.

    Nope. Jake doesn’t have any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration. Again, you’re half right.

    * My phone’s spellchecker actually corrected the word from Ha’aretz to “Ha’aretz.” It won’t autocorrect “y’all” or a thousand other common American words and it won’t even get the quite common name of my sister right, but it knows how to spell the name of an Israeli newspaper.

    He ain’t Prime Minister of Japen, either, but seems perfectly content telling the Japanese what to do: ‘Japan’s immigration policy “must” change.’ Not “should” change, but “must” change.

    Is he a Japanese citizen yet? If he isnt what are the odds of him ever becoming one? My guess is he would have an easier time becoming a citizen of Israel than of Japan, even though his bio doesn’t mention him ever living in Israel. So why not venture forth with more opinions on tbe immigration policy of a country where he could quite easily become a citizen?

    The problem isn’t that Israel would actually listen to him. All the American Jews we ask to support open borders for Israel could easily call our bluff by saying they support the idea. They know Israel wouldn’t change its policy. They don’t do it because they don’t want to admit that Israel has an utterly racist immigration policy that they don’t think any country but Israel should be allowed to have.

    It’s not just about reducing the current number of refugees we’re admitting. It’s about utterly destroying taxpayer-funded advocacy of open borders. All those refugee agencies resettling these people get funding from the US government. They use the money for resettlement, sure, but their taxpayer-funded jobs then allow them to lobby – in the press, in Congress, and elsewhere – for more refugees. Reduce the number of refugees and you reduce the number of resettlement agency employees, which reduces the number of people *advocating* for more refugees.

    I don’t think he really has any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration.
     
    Well, you're half right. He has deeply held opinions. Through through, not so much. Just for this article alone.

    Let's start with the title:

    Japan Needs ‘Foreigner Blood’ Like Naomi Osaka’s

     

    In case you missed the subtlety, that's a very clear immigration stance.

    But apart from ebullient praise for super athletes, Japan’s xenophobia runs deep, and it’s something the country will have to conquer if it hopes to be a winning nation—not just an opportunistic fanboy.
     
    By all means, dissolve an ancient people and culture through miscegenation to chalk up a few more victories by "citizens" who share little to none of the original people's genes.

    In many ways, Osaka’s victory has raised questions about what it means to be Japanese and whether Japan is ready to create the multiracial society it needs to survive and thrive as a nation. It really does need to do this—the numbers says as much, but we’ll get to that later.

     

    Um. This is kind of an immigration stance.

    Years ago, a drunken official in Japan’s ministry of education, culture, sports, and science told me the official color of the Japanese people was mugi-iro (wheat-colored), “not yellow,” and then lectured me on the purity of the Japanese bloodline, as opposed to the American mongrels. Presumably, when on Sept. 5, Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso, also known for his admiration of Hitler, praised Japan for being “the only colored country in the Group of Seven,” he meant that color. Unfortunately, Naomi Osaka isn’t quite wheat-colored, nor are all the people living in Japan.
     
    Hey, Jake's a Jew. How can he not bring up Hitler. I mean, it works so well in the West. Jews are getting lazy. They haven't changed their playbook in 50 years. Then again, it works, so why fix what ain't broken. But Jake seems to be getting a bit annoyed that it doesn't work against this team.

    Even in what appears to be an ethnically homogenous society, especially one that values conformity and harmony, there are layers and layers of discrimination and xenophobia. Third- and fourth-generation Korean-Japanese, many of them descendants of slave labor from Japan’s colonial period, are blamed for every crime, accident, and problem in Japan. Many mainland Japanese view Okinawans as “lazy” and not purely Japanese; they are also subject to shoddy treatment.
     
    Well, then by all means, let's bring in more groups so we can have even more trouble. Maybe Jake should turn the problem on its head. Inverse, always inverse, Jake.

    You can still find bookstores with tomes on how the Jews are destroying Japan, in a country where the population of permanent resident Jews is said to be less than 2,000.
     
    I can't imagine why Jews keep getting kicked out countries. They're so shy and just want to get along.

    With a dwindling population but a slightly increasing number of international marriages, Japan has to decide how to combat racism, embrace multiculturalism and tolerance if it wants to survive.

    ... It’s a matter of mathematics.
     
    See, it's just math. How can you argue with that. You like math, don't you?

    As far back as the year 2000, the United Nations Population Division in a paper, “Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Aging Populations?” noted, “In order to keep the size of the working-age population constant at the 1995 level of 87.2 million, Japan would need 33.5 million immigrants from 1995 through 2050.”
     
    And the United Nations has never been wrong about anything. Also, that's not math, it's modeling. They're different. Finally, why does Japan have to keep its working age population at 1995 levels. What if it fell to 1985 or 1975 levels. Was Japan a hellhole in 1985 or 1975?

    Seriously, Jake is an idiot.

    Japan isn’t even close to the number of immigrants the U.N. said it would need in 2000. The Nakagawa proposal would be a good start, if Japan actually wants to survive.
     
    Really, the Japanese will just disappear off the face of the earth if they don't import 10 million people? Really. Is that a fact, Jake? Is that math? A hundred years from now, Japan will be an uninhabited island. Really?

    I’d have to say I’m not completely objective on the issue. I have two hafu-lings,
     
    I'm shocked to discover that Jake is talking his book. Stunning.

    Changing the laws to recognize multi-nationality wouldn’t be hard. It would certainly be much easier than a vigorously opposed attempt to rewrite Japan’s constitution. Discouraging racism, embracing diversity, and welcoming more people to Japan–the government can do that. They even had a plan to do so, a decade ago.
     
    Nope. Jake doesn't have any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration. Again, you're half right.

    I don't know who you are, anon, but your statement implies that you're an idiot.

    I happen to know quite a few 2nd, and even 3rd gen American kids with ethnic heritage from a European nation many times smaller than Japan, with often no one around but their mother to speak with in the mother’s native language. Their language skills in their mothers’ native language are more than adequate. It’s more about the mother’s (or in one, the father’s) attitude towards retaining their language and heritage than anything else. In most cases, as the mother was born and raised in the U.S., her first language is English, with excellent, but not quite native-like level of ability in the ancestral language. And yet their 3rd gen kids speak and write it just fine.

    In one exceptional case, the child isn’t even theirs, but is adopted from Africa, and yet speaks the (US-born) mother’s ancestral European language fluently.

    So what’s Osaka’s excuse, having actually lived in Japan during the most important language-formative period of her life and being a hafu? Does she really identify as Japanese, or as an AfAm, as is typical with blacks or half-blacks in the U.S. regardless of their parents’ ancestry? (cf. Kaepernick).

    Up to age 3 you don't interact outside the household much and you are entirely present-centered. Both parents probably spoke English at home.

    Once in the US, there is zero incentive to speak Japanese other than as a hobby or intellectual pursuit.

  129. The whole ‘Japan’s birthrate is low so they need to admit foreigners’ argument is a bit like realizing that you have eczema so you need to cut off your arm.

    Obviously, a low birthrate has to be addressed. It is possible for a nation to raise its birthrate, and it’s particularly possible for a cooperative and organized people like the Japanese. Meantime, there are robotics — which the Japanese are good at as well.

    There’s nothing wrong with Japan’s population declining for a while. It’s reached 120 million, and the islands would be perfectly adequately peopled with forty million. All that needs to be done is to slow the rate of decline and ameliorate the effects of an aging population.

    That says engage in some social tinkering to encourage childbearing and develop still more automation. It doesn’t say ‘admit tens of millions of immigrants and commit national suicide.’

    Japan is not a multi-racial society. That’s mighty fine, and I’ve no desire to fix it.

    If I married a Japanese woman and we had kids, I’d earnestly recommend that we move to the United States. The United States is a multi-racial society. They’ll be happier here.

    Per se, neither one is right, or wrong, or (God help us) needs to be ‘fixed.’ It’s just the way it is. What’s wrong with accepting that?

    Doing a survey in Japan about what they think of Jews is absurd. It's like asking Americans what they think of dark matter or the Sumerians. Jews are just not something Japanese really know, think, or care much about. No poll is going to come up with any meaningful result. It will be like when a Mormon missionary approaches them. Japanese smile, are polite, and then extract themselves and walk away.

    There were some weird sensationalistic books about Jews twenty or thirty years ago, but they were on the level of Erich von Daniken books, and were entertainament not taken seriously by the few people who read them.

    This is one of many reasons I think Americans should have to spend a couple of years abroad during their twenties. Even intelligent Americans are kind of stupid when it comes to topics that involve foreeign countries. I think that living in any foreign country (maybe not the Five Eyes) makes you much more adept at interpreting information about any other foreign country, because you have one piece of data about how wrong stuff is about where you lived. Reading journalism about Japan has made me suspicious about stories about France, for instance. And living abroad adds nuance to Americans' jingoism because you see that different ways of doing things can actaully work out just fine in practice.

    An extreme example is the cartoonish way North Korea is perceived in the U.S. vs. what you know about it living in a country whre the news regularly covers quotidian events there on the ground.

    I happen to know quite a few 2nd, and even 3rd gen American kids with ethnic heritage from a European nation many times smaller than Japan, with often no one around but their mother to speak with in the mother's native language. Their language skills in their mothers' native language are more than adequate. It's more about the mother's (or in one, the father's) attitude towards retaining their language and heritage than anything else. In most cases, as the mother was born and raised in the U.S., her first language is English, with excellent, but not quite native-like level of ability in the ancestral language. And yet their 3rd gen kids speak and write it just fine.

    In one exceptional case, the child isn't even theirs, but is adopted from Africa, and yet speaks the (US-born) mother's ancestral European language fluently.

    So what's Osaka's excuse, having actually lived in Japan during the most important language-formative period of her life and being a hafu?

    Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi?


    His original vision was for a world divided into only five states: a United States of Europe that would link continental countries with French and Italian possessions in Africa; a Pan-American Union encompassing North and South Americas; the British Commonwealth circling the globe; the USSR spanning Eurasia; and a Pan-Asian Union whereby Japan and China would control most of the Pacific. To him, the only hope for a Europe devastated by war was to federate along lines that the Hungarian-born Romanian Aurel Popovici and others had proposed for the dissolved multinational Empire of Austria-Hungary. According to Coudenhove-Kalergi, Pan-Europe would encompass and extend a more flexible and more competitive Austria-Hungary, with English serving as the world language, spoken by everyone in addition to their native tongue. He believed that individualism and socialism would learn to cooperate instead of compete, and urged that capitalism and communism cross-fertilise each other just as the Protestant Reformation had spurred the Catholic Church to regenerate itself.

  172. Actually, Japan does have a fair number of foreigners living there. There are lots of Chinese people living in Japan as well as a growing number of Thai and Vietnamese. My wife, who is both Japanese and somewhat of a Japanese nationalist, is generally opposed to immigration to Japan. However, she thinks it would be OK for immigrants to come from neighboring Asian countries who share similar culture. These would be “Toiyo-jin”, which means East Asian and other people who share similar culture (Buddhism) and race. I suggested that Indonesian Christians would probably be good as well.

    Both my wife and I are vehemently opposed to Islamic immigration or immigration from cultures that are completely dissimilar to that of Japan (for example, MENA region, Africa, etc.).

    I suspect our gaijin friend from the Yomiuri Shimbun would disagree on this last part. I also suspect he would be opposed to a merit-based immigration policy that would limit immigration to those with technical, professional, or managerial capacity and experience.

    Adelstein is a smart and talented guy with an interesting life. His book Tokyo Vice recounts how he read the Yomiuri every day for a year while attending, I think, Sophia University, then took their exam and was hired as a reporter seishaiin. For the Japanese Yomiuri, not the English version, and not as a keiyaku shaiin. He started out covering high school baseball in the boondocks, going door to door after crimes to try to shake out witnesses, and boring stuff like that. He managed to survive for, I think, eight years, ending up as one of Yomiuri's reporters at the Tokyo metropolitan police "press club." I came to Japan at about the same time as he did and know what a big deal that is.

    If people go from here and attack him on Twitter without giving him any context or nuance, he'll treat you badly. But as I said, he's a good guy, in various senses. He has been on the receiving end of trolls and a particularly bad stalker (C.J.) who makes Gamer Gate guys look like pikers, so Adelstein is a little fast to the trigger when confronted. I recommend dealing with him in a civil manner. I would characterize him as a Malcolm Gladwell type: smart, knowledgeable, a tendance to exagerate and make facts fit patterns he likes, but not to such a great extent that his views are worthless.

    There's used to be a clip online of Adelstein's Daily Show appearance when his book came out. He also was briefly a regular on a Japanese show where foreign press commented on Japanese events, but I don't know if those are online.

    I don't think he really has any deep and thought-through opinions on immigration. His article was a piece of pumped out clickkbait. If you are able to identify his stalker, a potential motive for the piece may present itself to you: In a particular sense that is not immediately obvious it will probably infuriate his stalker.

    Asians find the lecturing of those they consider alien outsiders entertaining, at best, but never take them seriously. That is most certainly the case with this writer.

    Their highest elites, leaders and tycoons are not eager to be considered “cosmopolitan”. They hold the self-righteousness of Westerners to be of zero account, which renders them unable to be influenced, made to feel guilty, or shamed. As with the elites, so with the broad Asian population.

What is the mechanism behind elites from various countries connecting to each other and working with each other within what belief and value system is a question. The weakness of Russia and mistrust of Russia by China is that Russian elites are always ready to betray their people and ready to embrace the West. So China is very skeptical about giving full support to Russia in Russia contest with the West. In China where there is a communist rolling party with well defined doctrine and internal rule and discipline the elites must be much more careful.

    These media people are a complete fraud. The Zany interviewer opens by claiming she wants to understand his views–but she spends her energy challenging Bannon, and interposing her own assumptions.
     
    Precisely so. Bannon should have responded: "You're lying. You don't want to understand me. You want to defeat me - by any means necessary, including lying, cheating & stealing. You know that, I know that, and we both know that we both know that. So let's proceed without any such polite pretenses. Do your worst. I will beat you. By telling the truth."

    Just the other night on NPR, a producer for “This American Life” tricked some beer-drinking yahoos into representing Deplorability as best they could; even with the Baron-Cohen casting trickery, the producer still resorted to obvious lying, misrepresenting Yahoo Two’s doubts about the legitimacy of refugee asylum claims as Yahoo Two not thinking that refugees physically exist (but at the same time, being worried about them coming here). Seriously, her follow-up snark (all the NPR journalists today talk like bratty teenagers, so every deplorable assertion is always followed by follow-up snark mocking the speaker) was “like unicorns or something.” The producer’s own evidence for the legitimacy of refugee asylum claims (and physical existence as the refuge-seeking-thing-as-such) was to assert without evidence that this is like totally serious for real you guys.
    She picked the dumbest people she could find, to Simon Cowell them on national radio, and she still had to resort to lying and unicorns.

    If you've ever lived in Asia anywhere (other than the Philippines - a particularly Western-loving place, and Christian to boot), you would know that the moral hectoring of outsiders , broadly defined as anyone "not of their race", or of mixed parentage, or Asians who have foreign attitudes/leanings or culture/religion, are mostly ignored, and in fact invite snickering from the locals.

    Asians find the lecturing of those they consider alien outsiders entertaining, at best, but never take them seriously. That is most certainly the case with this writer.

    Their highest elites, leaders and tycoons are not eager to be considered "cosmopolitan". They hold the self-righteousness of Westerners to be of zero account, which renders them unable to be influenced, made to feel guilty, or shamed. As with the elites, so with the broad Asian population.

    I find it hard to believe in Adelstein. However, I can’t call him a liar, and his writing on crime is entertaining. However, it seems that he was being fed info. by the police, not truly an investigative journalist.

    I could do something similar on a smaller scale, but it would involve betrayal and anecdotes of incidents.

    Not that I have any involvement, but social contacts at times with them, many are arseholes, but tend to leave you alone if you are not connected with their activities.

    Re. Osaka, almost nobody heard of her, even after she beat Williams at Wimbledon. The tennis star who is loved is Nishikori, in the men’s competition.

    I am sure that the sympathy generated by the atrocious and then condescending behaviour of Williams will win her much sympathy. People notice such things.

    Re. Cambridge, anyone who actually watched the race can see that the three runners who preceded him had already placed the team in a very good position, there is no way that he was solely responsible for the result. He finished in the exact position set up for him before the final baton pass.

    Presenting it as his win was just a lie, all that he had to do was to maintain the position the other three had already established.

    Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi?


    His original vision was for a world divided into only five states: a United States of Europe that would link continental countries with French and Italian possessions in Africa; a Pan-American Union encompassing North and South Americas; the British Commonwealth circling the globe; the USSR spanning Eurasia; and a Pan-Asian Union whereby Japan and China would control most of the Pacific. To him, the only hope for a Europe devastated by war was to federate along lines that the Hungarian-born Romanian Aurel Popovici and others had proposed for the dissolved multinational Empire of Austria-Hungary. According to Coudenhove-Kalergi, Pan-Europe would encompass and extend a more flexible and more competitive Austria-Hungary, with English serving as the world language, spoken by everyone in addition to their native tongue. He believed that individualism and socialism would learn to cooperate instead of compete, and urged that capitalism and communism cross-fertilise each other just as the Protestant Reformation had spurred the Catholic Church to regenerate itself.

    “ The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. …

    Thankfully, Japanese regard foreign ideologies as fashion, never coming close to actually adopting said ideologies wholesale. Sure, the Japanese can be influenced, but never brainwashed like the Anglo-Zionists or the Communist Chinese.

    Christianity, to take one example, has had pathetically low uptake despite more than a century of missionary work in Japan. Japanese women have Christian weddings in white dresses, but would never consider actually changing their faith.

    I don’t think the objective is getting Japan to fall for it. I think the objective is to get Japan to make a few conciliatory gestures which can subsequently magnified and exaggerated by the media in the west to PROVE decisively to the deplorables that Asian countries are open to diversity and immigration. One sees it already as Japan makes it easier for caregivers to obtain long-term visas and such. The Mainstream Media picks it up and runs with it, ignoring the fact that Japan has accepted a grand total of 13 refugees in the last decade. (No, that’s not factual) I like to invoke the Korean Jeju Island case as my evidence for the desire of Asian countries to allow “refugees” in thier countries. Desiring to develop Jeju Island as a tourist destination, the Koreans did away with visa requirements for the island, offering a landing visa instead. A group of Yemenis who had enough money to flee the violence propogated by the Saudi and the US in their nation flew to Malaysia to seek refugee status. The Malaysians weren’t having any of it, so the Yemenis flew to Jeju Island, where they demanded refugee status, a place to live, food, jobs, etc. The people on Jeju Island freaked out; all of Korea freaked out. The landing visa laws were changed in a week. Such rational defense of borders, nations and cultures should be the norm.
