The mayor of one of Japan’s largest cities, who is seen by some as a possible future prime minister, drew an outcry on Monday after he said women forced into wartime brothels for the Japanese Army during World War II had served a necessary role in providing relief for war-crazed soldiers.
Toru Hashimoto, the populist mayorof Osaka, also said American soldiers stationed in Okinawa should make more use of the island’s adult entertainment industry, which he said would reduce the incidence of sexual crimes against local women.
this fucker needs to be thrown out of office! at least there are some who have the sense to take this shithead to task:
Mr. Hashimoto’s remarks swiftly drew widespread public rebuke.
“The comfort women system was not necessary,” said Banri Kaieda, president of the opposition Democratic Party. That Japan was the clear aggressor in war “is a fact we must face up to,” he said.
Idiocy is a widespread disease among politicians across the globe.
