Paul Watson, leader of the crazed eco-terrorists at Sea Shepherd, has written a poem implying the earthquake which recently killed thousands of Japanese was divine retribution for mistreating the oceans, whilst other crackpot greens have been rejoicing at the prospect of people from the same country as people who kill whales and dolphins dying.

Paul Watson’s contribution, by way of Facebook:


The underlying implication is rather obvious and is not lost on his followers.

His equally crazy coterie apparently see this as mother nature punishing the Japanese for their wickedness, or even as an opportunity to blackmail Japan into giving up whaling:

“It is a great tragedy and many innocent have been hurt by tremendous Tsunami,
but this Kama was not punishment or justice for an individual, it was a message to Japan as a Nation, not to overdo it with its poaching of the world’s oceans!!!!!”

“maybe it is karma… Japan haven’t been the only ones to be on the receiving end! The captain is right… This poem is true! We all need to wake up and realise that we are just tiny beings out staying our welcome!”

“It’s getting better every time you will always get the fullest from me full support for you if Japen is poor affter this disaster they are not going have to bother the whales if theres going to be a valcano ready to go off”

“Capt. Watson: Japan will require and request aid. With aid, come conditions and compromise. This is the opportunity for aid giving countries to demand the end of Japanese Whaling in return for help. When asked by your local aid organizations to give help and money, demand the end of Japanese Whaling.”

Other environmentalists pitch in on Twitter, which is currently playing host to a revitalised campaign of anti-Japanese sentiment:

“It wasnt an earthquake, it was the dolphin uprising….”

“Another earthquake in Japan – when will karma hit Taiji? The pens will crack open at Dolphin Base and the captives will return to the ocean”

“I hope the earthquake/tsunami in Japan swallows up every dolphin fishing boat!!! That would be an answered prayer = happy safe dolphins!”

“did the earthquake destroy all those japanese dolphin killers? HMPH.”

“Is it messed up that I think the earthquake is what Japan gets for bombing us at Pearl Harbor? #Karma #PayBack #WhatGoesAroundComesAround”

“you took something from the ocean Japan, and now the ocean wants something back … No more Whale and dolphin Killing ..”

“Japan, a Whale Killing Nation, suffers the wrath of Mother Nature: Earthquake and Tsunami. #Karma”

“Japan this is #Karma for Pearl Harbor!”

“Can’t help but thinking maybe the Japanese Earthquake is Karma for the dolphin and whale killings :/”

“I’ve heard that there are some SS members in Otsuchi Iwate. Are they OK after the earthquake? #seashepherd #taiji #thecove #cove”

“Serves Japan right that’s the sea getting its own back for all the dolphin killing and shark killings they do!!!”

“didnt japan kill over +1,000 American soldiers on Dec 7, 1942… #karma”

“I don’t wanna be a bitch or anything, but after the dolphin & whale slaughtering & everything else Japan does, I don’t feel bad. #karma”

“Poor Japanese. Maybe they shouldn’t have invaded Korea and China in the 50’s. #karma”

“loolz…japan get FUCK UP!!….thats for all the shark fins and whales ya’ll been fucking up in the past. #karma”

“after watching the movie, #TheCove, its kinda hard to feel sorry for #japan sorry dolphin slaughterers”

“Japan attacks Pearl Harbor, mother nature attacks them. #karma”

“Natural disasters are terrible… but I am willing to bet the Whale Wars cast is cracking brews and chuckling right about now #Karma”

“Hello World don’t send any troops or help to #japan….ask them to sign or give up killing the whales and dolphin!!!this is the time!!!”

“I’m feeling remorse for the kids and animal lovers in Japan :( but do u think its karma 4 all those who eat dogs&cats and..”

“My mom is so cold. She said that she’s glad for Japan’s loss and said that it’s karma for all the things they’ve done to us Koreans, hahaha.”

“What did Japan expect? They kill dolphins. #karma”

Amongst the (presumed) minority of Americans willing to make such comments, the notion that the earthquake is karmic comeuppance for Pearl Harbor is an exceedingly common one.

China too has seen some hateful comments, although again the vast majority appear to express sympathy and admiration for Japan’s handling of the crisis, calling the negative remarks “shameful” and praising their orderly response as “moving” and “something China won’t be capable of even in 50 years.”

The most spiteful official response seen is undoubtedly that of North Korea, which coolly published news of the quake alongside an article condemning Japan as an imperialist oppressor and demanding compensation.

    That makes no fucking sense...

    I know I dislike the Japanese are doing something wrong by extinguishing species, but to call a natural disaster a divine retribution is kinda stupid. This only makes me wish for Sea Sheperd to experience being swallowed up by the sea... they contribute little to this world besides saving a few endangered mammals anyways.

    Actually none of the mammals they save are actually endangered in the first place - common dolphins and minke whales certainly aren't...

    They are not "extinguishing" a species. They are engaging in a sustainable harvest. There are plenty of illegal fishing operations that ARE extinguishing species, just not mammalian ones. They get away with it because the altruistic habits of these terrorists aply only to certain species and not others.

    Stupidity is something entirely different from moral.

    "This quake was god's punishment for Pearl Harbor!"
    Exactly how far on your way to insanity/idiocy you have to be to spout out this kind of bullshit? The saddest part is that it's just not one person shouting this, there are thousands of Americans who actually think like this.

    I guess you could call this the downside of the internet and especially social networks: even the most retarded people can get their thoughts heard.

    It's people like these who cause racial tensions. And for what? For something that happened long long time ago in history way before any of these idiots were even born.

    Yayifications for humanity! We are all going to hell.

    They're breeding like flies on a cow patty, my friend. -_- And the hot air from the mouths of so many of them would knock the buzzards off a shit wagon at a hundred yards.

    If there was any divine retribution to be had, these inbred nouveau-hippies would be fatally gang-raped by the dolphins they love so fucking much.

    Sadly, they'll all continue to live.... befouling the air we breath with their vitriolic hate-mongering crap that they speak so well.

    No silly, that argument about the nukes was in reference to pearl harbor.

    And that's a double negative, Japan whaled way before WWII, like much of the occidental world did.

    I'm actually OK with what they're trying to accomplish, and that's saving marine mammals. Too bad the leader is a putrid old man who's gone senile to the point of saying that violence and terror is fine. Thank goodness most of the world isn't like him.

    also if it would be divine punishment of the sea, why isn't every other country getting punishment voor al the meat we eat, usa adn europe probaly slaughters thousands of cows, and millions of chickens.

    i hate the idea of divine punishment, if pearl harbor wasn't bad enough people want somthing as bad to happen, with people who have nothing to do with it. and sadly that has been the case with the atomic bombs, i'd say unnessary killing but al wars are.

    holy crap, I've never seen these videos.

    I was a Sea Shepherd supporter, but not anymore. In just the last few days I've come to despise them. I'm vegan, so naturally I'm against any animal slaughter, but I'd like to know how many of Sea Shepherd's crew and supporters are also vegan. I'm guessing not all are, probably not even most. My guess is that the vast majority are meat-eating hypocrites who can find all sorts of ways to justify why it's OK for them to eat animal A but not OK for people on the island nation of Japan to eat animal B. I'd like to organize a really obnoxious group of vegans, maybe some Buddhists from Japan, to go over to Australia or America or Canada or wherever, and harass all the meat-eating Sea Shepherd members in their country, in a foreign language, mock them and accuse them of beating their wives while sticking cameras in their faces and telling them to speak Japanese. That would be "fun".

    The fat fake captain is not a vegetarian or a vegan.There is documented proof that Watson loves meat pies, filet mingon, hamburgers from Tasmania, he loves French cheeses and French butter, he loves sea food, he eats smoked salmon , all salmon, he loves food but then thats no surprise is it. This old liar takes donations from the manipulated fools he calls trolls. He hates people by his own admission he is misanthropic. He hates the world but he loves conning people for money. This media tart is a multi millionaire on other peoples money. He is a ciminal wih one charge against him for attempted murder. All this can be found doing a Google search from honest sources and people. There is so much more about this con man compulsive liar if you look. He is wanted in many countries around the world, the odd thing about this twisted up old bastard is that Australia keep letting him in. I for one would like to know why!!! He only cares about money and publicity...that and having his freezer on board his rust bucket stocked with tasty meat dishes. Do NOT donate to this mongrol, he stashes the donations in his off shore bank accounts. He has covered his criminal trail well so day his empire will come crashing down. There is no fool like an old fool who believes he is jesus christ come to save the planet. Pity the old jerk as he embarks on his fourth marriage to a twenty year old dumb single mother gold digger. Karma will get him of this we can be certain.

    What a stinking freak to say that 'karma' was the reason thousands died in Japan. He has no respect for anyone, he would have been celebrating when he heard the news. What a vile old racist. The hypocrite claims hes not a racist but he is. He hates the Japanese with a passion. He should be in jail for many reasons known to a few insiders. Time will tell.
