Japanese Foreign Minister Announces Plan to “Transform Japan Into a Diverse Multiethnic Society”

No.736407 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
The Japanese foreign minister has announced a plan to “transform Japan into a diversified multiethnic society” by encouraging mass immigration and giving foreign residents the right to vote.

Toshimitsu Motegi is a politician for the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and has served as the country’s Minister for Foreign Affairs since September 2019.

During a Q and A session, Motegi said his “national vision” meant “transforming Japan in the 21st century into a “diversified multiethnic society” by way of mass immigration from all over the world.

This would also be achieved by codifying English as the country’s second language and giving “suffrage to resident foreigners.”

Japan is 98.1 per cent ethnically Japanese, with the next most populous ethnicity being Chinese at just 0.5 per cent.

The country has an extremely low crime rate and terrorism is very rare. Back in 2017, at the height of the refugee crisis, it was revealed that Japan had refused 99% of refugees, having accepted just 28 in 2016.

Back in 2018, leftists in the U.S. began demanding that Japan embrace multiculturalism because a half-Japanese tennis player with a Haitian-American father won the US Open.

In Moscow, law enforcement officers discovered the factory of trolls of Navalny

On August 19, security officials rushed into one of the apartments in Maryino near Moscow. Several girls were taken from there, who were put in a special bus and taken away, according to the local edition of the Bulletin of the Moscow Region. According to a source in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, this group was writing provocative comments and encouraging citizens to engage in illegal activities at Moscow rallies. In addition, the source added: there is every reason to believe that several more similar “offices” operate in Moscow and the region. “Krasovsky’s Shavki” also published a video from surveillance cameras installed in the underground apartment of Navalny’s bots. On the frames you can see the movement of local employees, their working equipment. Apparently, the blogger does not trust his staff too much, and this can turn into a criminal liability. Previously, political technologist Stanislav Belkovsky reported that Navalny had an entire army of bots. In his opinion, such a “support” is needed by a blogger when he has nothing to say to his detractors. Confirmation of his words was found by the RT editorial, who discovered a special Bosslike application for cheating subscribers and likes.

Funniest shit I've read in weeks.

>China Gave US Diplomats Anal COVID Tests ‘In Error,’ American Officials Say

>The U.S. State Department says it is committed to preserving the “dignity” of American diplomats.

>The Chinese government has promised to stop using anal swabs on American diplomats to test for COVID-19 after Washington complained that the practice was undignified, the U.S. State Department said. “The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it,” a State Department spokesperson told VICE World News on Wednesday. The spokesperson said Beijing had assured Washington that the test was given “in error” and that diplomatic personnel were exempt from the test, which was mandatory for incoming travelers in some parts of China. “We have instructed staff to decline this test if it is asked of them, as was done in the past.”

Josh Hawley Flatly Rejects To Qaren MGT & Followers 'Whackos'

No.797895 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has said the QAnon conspiracy theory has no credibility and criticized those who follow it.

Hawley, speaking to KMOV News 4, was asked if he in any way backs the ideology of QAnon followers and if this has any credibility in his opinion.

"No. Zero," he said. "I don't know, I still don't know what they are or why Marjorie Taylor Green is aligning so tightly to them. I don't care to know. It seems like a bunch of whackos, extremists to me and absolutely not."

This is Trump's heaping list of legal problems post-impeachment

No.791305 ViewReplyOriginalReport
https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/13/politics/trump-legal-problems-post-impeachment/index.html

After averting a conviction in his second impeachment trial, former President Donald Trump faces significant new legal threats as prosecutors in Georgia have joined those in New York to conduct criminal investigations into his actions.

As the nation watched harrowing videos from January 6 of Trump supporters storming the US Capitol during the Senate impeachment trial this week, Georgia officials announced they have opened investigations into Trump's efforts to overturn the state's election results, including by pressuring officials to "find" votes to swing the outcome in his favor.

The new investigations add to a heaping list of legal issues facing the former President that could threaten his finances and possibly his freedom.
Out of office and without the protections that the presidency afforded him,
Trump is now facing multiple criminal investigations, civil state inquiries and defamation lawsuits by two women accusing him of sexual assault.

The pressure comes as Trump weighs his future in politics and in business with the Trump Organization, which has already been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, also losing corporate partnerships following Trump's January 6 speech whipping up the crowd.

In the three weeks since Trump left the White House, the multiple legal threats he faces have increased and become more imminent.

The non white leader of the white supremacist terrorist group Proud Boys was an FBI Informant

n the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

Tarrio, in an interview with Reuters Tuesday, denied working undercover or cooperating in cases against others. “I don’t know any of this,” he said, when asked about the transcript. “I don’t recall any of this.”

Law-enforcement officials and the court transcript contradict Tarrio’s denial. In a statement to Reuters, the former federal prosecutor in Tarrio’s case, Vanessa Singh Johannes, confirmed that “he cooperated with local and federal law enforcement, to aid in the prosecution of those running other, separate criminal enterprises, ranging from running marijuana grow houses in Miami to operating pharmaceutical fraud schemes.”

Tarrio, 36, is a high-profile figure who organizes and leads the right-wing Proud Boys in their confrontations with those they believe to be Antifa, short for “anti-fascism,” an amorphous and often violent leftist movement. The Proud Boys were involved in the deadly insurrection at the Capitol January 6.

The records uncovered by Reuters are startling because they show that a leader of a far-right group now under intense scrutiny by law enforcement was previously an active collaborator with criminal investigators.

Washington police arrested Tarrio in early January when he arrived in the city two days before the Capitol Hill riot. He was charged with possessing two high-capacity rifle magazines, and burning a Black Lives Matter banner during a December demonstration by supporters of former President Donald Trump. The D.C. Superior Court ordered him to leave the city pending a court date in June.

Porky cries anti-semitism

Hedge fund CEO squeezed by shitposters cries anti-semitism as his defense

Key Facts

Plotkin said Reddit posters encouraged others to drive up the price of GameStop stock in posts “with antisemitism” directed at him and others, citing where someone wrote, “It’s very clear we need anuddah shoah, porky can’t keep getting away with this.”

Reddit CEO is also testifying at the hearing, said their “anti-evil” team searched for the comment Plotkin mentioned, and found it “received no votes and was deleted within five minutes.”
>“anti-evil” team

Melvin Capital suffered massive losses when GameStop’s share price climbed to record heights, and has been a particular target of the Reddit forum r/WallStreetBets, who style themselves as crusaders against wealthy Wall Street firms.

The moderators of r/WallStreetBets, who are in charge of making sure the community doesn’t run afoul of Reddit’s speech removal policies, did not respond to a message from Forbes

Key Background
This isn’t the first time r/WallStreetBets has been accused of hate speech and offensive language. At the height of Gamestop the community’s Discord server was banned for espousing unpopular truths. In response, a moderator said they were trying in good faith to weed out free speech, but the task became difficult with a massive influx of new shitposters. “You know as well as I do that if you gather 250k people in one spot someone is going to say something that makes porky look bad,” one wrote in a Reddit post, responding to the Discord ban.

Summoned to testify before a House committee Thursday about about his hedge fund’s short trading of GameStop shares, Melvin Capital CEO Gabriel Plotkin said that Reddit traders behind the meme stock frenzy targeted him with anti-semitic attacks and claimed it was anuddah stonk shoah.
