I seriously love shooting down discussions on FreeRepublic.

I have an account there, and I put out inconvenient facts that bring down discussions and pretty much end them.
Tonight, some funny ( ) person put out a satire post about Japanese people fearing a backlash after Pearl Harbor, trying to tie Charlie Hebdo to all Muslims. People were posting back and forth for a while with things like
"Don’t Blame Japanese for Pearl Harbor—It was japanese airplanes that bombed our ships! You can’t blame the whole Island full of people. FDR must send a peace committee to work out new terms and foreign aid to the Japanese Empire."
"America has been calling Japanese products cheap and inferior for years . . . Pearl Harbor was just a natural response to such blatant disrespect."

Is it hilarious? Is it racist? Hilaracist?

My reply to the thread was: "Well, considering between 110,000 and 120,000 people of Japanese descent were interned in the U.S., maybe some fear of backlash was warranted."

Another 'legitimate rape' wacko.
