The well deserved reputation of Americans for tolerance and humility has been highlighted by a series of widely circulated Tweets trumpeting the USA’s Olympic victory over Japan as “revenge for Pearl Harbor” (two nukes and 70 years of suzerainty apparently not being enough), in the otherwise obscure and unwatched sport of women’s football – where the USA received a drubbing at the hands of Japan’s team in 2011, which was responded to with the expected good grace.

Social media lit up with anti-Japanese triumphalism the instant the US team had finished whipping Nadeshiko Japan for the Olympic Gold, 2-1:

The remarks have been excoriated both internationally and in the US, although there is some doubt as to whether such sentiments are really held by as small a minority as the majority of Americans prefer to maintain.

The Japanese reaction to these comments is as predictable – although the loss of their overly prized team has been greeted with stoicism.

    • Dear Japan,

      On behalf of most of my countrymen, and all who post here on SanCom, I’d like to apologize for the behavior of those Americans who posted such hateful remarks. They are heavily inbred, overly jingoistic bigots who are still upset that they’re no longer allowed to keep black people as farm animals — an issue which was settled over 150 years ago.

      If it’s any consolation for your defeat at the hands (or feet) of the US Women’s Soccer Team, those bigots cheered so loudly when the US lost its bid for the 2016 Olympics that we did not even attempt to make a bid for the 2020 Olympics. I sincerely hope that you get the 2020 Games, if for no other reason than to piss off those hateful bastards.

      Yours truly,
      A non-xenophobic American

        • Its time we got over this already. This shit happened 70 something fucking years ago and we’re still talking like it happened yesterday. Hell most if not all of these dumbasses weren’t even born back then.

        • Reading this shit makes me really sad to be American. Most of these people aren’t even old enough to have been born during WWII times, so they don’t have any right to be throwing around “This is for Pearl Harbor” and “Revenge” I apologize as one of the few non-retarded American citizens. *bows*

        • 07:02 I think that the fact that Americans never had their country destroyed in war make them so pro-war and all butthurt over any attack that happened in their territory.

          So thousands of American soldiers deaths are outrageous but millions of civilians deaths from the enemy, including children and elderly, is “Justice”

          I bet that if a cataclism happen on Afganistan killing millions of innocents including we will hear Americans saying that it is karma over the three thousands of deaths in 9/11 caused by a global terrorist organization.

        • The ignorance of these tweets is baffling. It does a disservice to all the men and women who served in both theaters during the World War II. Yes we did drop the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki which killed hundreds of thousands of people but they don’t understand why we did that.

          We chose to drop the bombs because the only other alternative was a full scale invasion of the Japanese homeland. It was estimated that the first 8 waves would be completely wiped out and the total death toll of the campaign (called Operation Downfall) would be in the millions. We chose to drop the bombs in order to save millions of lives and the decision haunted Truman until the day he died.

          The dropping of the bombs were never a response to the attack on Pearl Harbor (look up The Doolittle Raid) it was to end the war. The fact that all these people who keep bring this up over and over like its something to be proud of should have payed more attention in history class.

        • Sorry if I find your comment ironically funny and not that I’m specifically targeting you, because considering how many Americans here act the very same way as those tweets but to the Koreans and Chinese, just further reinforces the fact that weeaboos on this site are EXTREMELY bias when Chinese and Koreans are involved…

        • i just dont get it, just because of pearl harbor they are making a fuss (i dont know the history behind it tho) but what happened to the millions of people they killed with those 2 atomic bombs? i dont see japan saying “take that americans!! this was for the 2 atomic bombs” every time they win over america……..

        • Must also apologize. people that do this should not have twitter accounts. Less their biggotry will have to be kept to themselves. People making the connection from a friendly football game to a past war incident is just crazy.

        • I sincerly wish to apologize for the ignorant, racist, and most uncalled for comments on the results of the game. There no way to express how ashamed I am over the actions of my fellow citizens. Words cannot discribe how disgusted I am at these individuals. I give you my sincerest apologies.

        • Way too true… If you ignore them, thy just keep doing it, they just want someone to have an outburst, or *gasp* condemn them for what they said/did. Most take any feedback that doesn’t agree with them expressly as that person being ‘un-american’, and condemn the nay-sayer even worse than the topic they know really very little about

        • Ignoring them is like ignoring a festering wound, if you do so it will get worse.
          The only thing these goat-fuckers understand is a good beat down. That’s what shitkickers do and that what they expect.

      • Like in my country Brazil this kind of stupid comments is becoming increasingly unbearable, people with shit head they think will win something for his team won a game.

        Ignorant people like these Americans exists worldwide, unfortunately racist as these attract even more anger to USA, and Americans has nothing to do with it will pay for this scum

      • @01:45 Thank god. At least there’s still some honest, non bigoted fucking people in this world. These pearl harbor comments actually make be feel completely ashamed of my country. It’s a fucking disgrace.

      • Fucken amerifags. its no wonder the rest of the world hates your fucked up country. and yeh these faggots speak for all of your nation, its simple as that. you cant fucking deny it. Your Patriotic nation needs to wake up, and realise your goverment and media is turning you all into fucken terrorists. Australia is the fucken same. you people need to stop dwelling in the past. build a fucken bridge and GET THE FUCK OVER IT! GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!

      • i’m neither Japanese or American (actually i am, but i’m from Brazil so… South American?) and i get angry whenever i see these kind of Xenophobic Racist People (they’re everywhere, no matter the country).

      • Well, given how much hassle and financial hardship the Olympics bring to their host countries (‘sup Greece 2004), I can’t blame anyone for feeling relieved that the US won’t be hosting the Games in 2016 or 2020. There’s already enough shortfalls and deficits going around.

      • It’s not just raceism I think. Here in Hungary everione was crazy about Istvan “Koko” Kovacs a hungarian boxer including a former classmate of mine. As soon as Koko had his first defeat, theguy was like: Oh! what a loser! What a whimp! I always knew he’s worthless etc.
        He turned on him as soon as he lost his biggest match.

        • I believe these twitter comments are not intentionally racists, but shows signs of immaturity. Truth be told, we at one point of our lives have made a racists remarks/jokes in humor without realizing the consequences of our statement. Though it’s no justification of their comments, there’s of a society where you are free to speak your mind; unfortunately they are often aware of the backlash that follows their decisions.

          And yes I am an American and no I do not support their remarks; just their freedom of speech.

        • What you’re saying is actually really, really small compared to the racism in a lot of countries… If that’s your biggest qualm with someone of that mentality, be glad – you live in a better country than most of us.

        • Yeah, it’s always like that. I’m french and when we won the football world cup in 1998, everyone was like “oh yeah, we’re the best”.
          Then when they lost rapidly in 2002 the same people said “damnit, they’re the worst”.

      • This is what happens when a handful of dumbasses say the same thing: other people (i.e. nations) start to think that everyone that’s part of those people (i.e. the country) are one and the same.

        I’m an American, but that doesn’t mean that I act like the stereotypical punk.

        While it may be true that more than half of the majority act like dumbasses, that doesn’t mean the whole nation is like that; and that could be the said the same for any other nation.

      • I’m just going to say here that I’m American and when I saw this thread I was thinking, “You have got to be kidding me.” I have not seen A SINGLE person in my area – among my friends or family – who have the audacity to be so ridiculously stupid and vindictive as these douches have been. Rest assured that whatever idiots decided to display their true colors to their kinsmen are no brothers of mine when it comes to the olympics. These guys have turned my cheering over to the japanese! I hope to god that you guys kick our asses, please! I think only these guys will be offended and, frankly, they need a slap in the face.

    • How U.S. Economic Warfare Provoked Japan’s Attack on Pearl Harbor
      by Robert Higgs
      article source: independent(dot)org
      —————————————
      When Franklin D. Roosevelt became president in 1933, the U.S. government fell under the control of a man who disliked the Japanese and harbored a romantic affection for the Chinese because, some writers have speculated, Roosevelt’s ancestors had made money in the China trade. Roosevelt also disliked the Germans, and he tended to favor the British in his personal relations and in world affairs. He did not pay much attention to foreign policy, however, until his New Deal began to peter out in 1937. Afterward, he relied heavily on foreign policy to fulfill his political ambitions, including his desire for reelection to an unprecedented third term(before term limits were put in place).

      When Germany began to rearm and to seek Lebensraum aggressively in the late 1930s, the Roosevelt administration cooperated closely with the British and the French in measures to oppose German expansion. After World War II commenced in 1939, this U.S. assistance grew ever greater and included such measures as the so-called destroyer deal and the deceptively named Lend-Lease program. In anticipation of U.S. entry into the war, British and U.S. military staffs secretly formulated plans for joint operations. U.S. forces sought to create a war-justifying incident by cooperating with the British navy in attacks on German U-boats in the north Atlantic, but Hitler refused to take the bait, thus denying Roosevelt the pretext he craved for making the United States a full-fledged, declared belligerent—an end that the great majority of Americans opposed.

      In June 1940, Henry L. Stimson, who had been secretary of war under Taft and secretary of state under Hoover, became secretary of war again. Stimson was a lion of the Anglophile, northeastern upper crust and no friend of the Japanese. In support of the so-called Open Door Policy for China, Stimson favored the use of economic sanctions to obstruct Japan’s advance in Asia. Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau and Interior Secretary Harold Ickes vigorously endorsed this policy. Roosevelt hoped that such sanctions would goad the Japanese into making a rash mistake by launching a war against the United States, which would bring in Germany because Japan and Germany were allied.

      Accordingly, the Roosevelt administration, while curtly dismissing Japanese diplomatic overtures to harmonize relations, imposed a series of increasingly stringent economic sanctions on Japan. In 1939 the United States terminated the 1911 commercial treaty with Japan. “On July 2, 1940, Roosevelt signed the Export Control Act, authorizing the President to license or prohibit the export of essential defense materials.” Under this authority, “[o]n July 31, exports of aviation motor fuels and lubricants and No. 1 heavy melting iron and steel scrap were restricted.” Next, in a move aimed at Japan, Roosevelt slapped an embargo, effective October 16, “on all exports of scrap iron and steel to destinations other than Britain and the nations of the Western Hemisphere.” Finally, on July 26, 1941, Roosevelt “froze Japanese assets in the United States, thus bringing commercial relations between the nations to an effective end. One week later Roosevelt embargoed the export of such grades of oil as still were in commercial flow to Japan.”[2] The British and the Dutch followed suit, embargoing exports to Japan from their colonies in southeast Asia.

      An Untenable Position
      Roosevelt and his subordinates knew they were putting Japan in an untenable position and that the Japanese government might well try to escape the stranglehold by going to war. Having broken the Japanese diplomatic code, the Americans knew, among many other things, what Foreign Minister Teijiro Toyoda had communicated to Ambassador Kichisaburo Nomura on July 31: “Commercial and economic relations between Japan and third countries, led by England and the United States, are gradually becoming so horribly strained that we cannot endure it much longer. Consequently, our Empire, to save its very life, must take measures to secure the raw materials of the South Seas.”

      Because American cryptographers had also broken the Japanese naval code, the leaders in Washington knew as well that Japan’s “measures” would include an attack on Pearl Harbor.[4] Yet they withheld this critical information from the commanders in Hawaii, who might have headed off the attack or prepared themselves to defend against it. That Roosevelt and his chieftains did not ring the tocsin makes perfect sense: after all, the impending attack constituted precisely what they had been seeking for a long time. As Stimson confided to his diary after a meeting of the war cabinet on November 25, “The question was how we should maneuver them [the Japanese] into firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves.” After the attack, Stimson confessed that “my first feeling was of relief … that a crisis had come in a way which would unite all our people.

      • What a bitch argument. No one forced japan to engage in kill rape and burn in china. US has no obligation to supply a nation that is waging a war of clear aggression out of pure spite and infantile bitching. This is like saying you buy knives and meals from a store owner, go on a killing spree with them, then say the store owner is obligated to keep selling the killer knives and food when you run out of them.

        Japs dug their own grave. Only by undeserved mercy of the victor is their nation still standing, instead of being thrown to the pigs in korea and china to be raped and killed as they should have been.

    • It’s actually pretty funny, how most of them mention Pearl Harbor when in fact, they’ve never been there nor were they even born when it happened.

      The only thing that’s funnier, is when they’re going to play on their Wii or PlayStation after writing so much bullshit.

      Okay, it’s actually not funny at all.
      It’s sad, it really is.
      But looking on the bright side: I never expected much from humanity at all, and believe me: this kind of stupidity, arrogance, intolerance and hypocrisy is not exclusive to Americans, people from all countries have it.
      It’s just that the American idiots believe they could become superstars in Hollywood, if they had their name on the net, while the idiots from the rest of the world don’t.

      • I don’t really understand why the americans are so butthurt over Pearl Harbor. Maybe it was because they got outsmarted?

        It seems most americans forget that most of the men who died that day were soldiers!
        They signed up to fight for their country, they knew the risk and they got unlucky.

        What they also tend to forget is that they killed hundred of thousands CIVILLIANS, when they threw the a-bombs..

        Double standards ftw..

      • sry this comment sounds general, its not there are alot of great folks in America and as a place its a good country but the typical american Japanese hater… well i guess u can guess what im trying to say.

      • “Morons outnumber our nation 10-1.”

        It’s not that morons outnumber the rest of us by 10 to 1, it’s that they are 10 times more noticeable because they are morons.

        No one notices the people who go about their lives without bringing attention to themselves by being morons. People also tend to forget about the good things people say and do sooner than they do about the bad things they say or do.

        Every country (including Japan) has it’s morons, asshats and bigots. It’s our job to decide whether or not these people speak for their country as a whole, which is very seldom the case in my experience.

        • No, they don’t speak for their country. They speak from their country. Their inane babbling has little to do with how the general population feels. The problem is that narrow minded people will take the ramblings of a very small minority and apply it to the majority.

          On a another note. I’m curious as to just how many “That’s for Nagasaki, bitches!!” we would have seen if Japan had won.

    • Sadly, I don’t think they’re all rednecks; But I certainly agree with you. I sure do hope America gets bombed, because if we get revenge and wipeout an entire nation, we’ll have idiots(like these)acting dreadfully to any survivors, claiming retribution.

    • WOW, I’m flabbergasted by this, really ?

      Why be so inconsiderate, If anything America Launched Atomic Bombs at Japan, and I don’t see people back lashing the USA.

      No, am still surprised by this. Fucking Stupidity.
      And it’s not only Rednecks making those remarks.

    • I want a deathnote literally. id swap eyes asap and rid this world of the amerifags once and for all. men, woman, children gone. dont care what race anyone who lives in that patriotic nation deserves death.

    • FILTHY AMERIFAGS! GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!
      GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!
      GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!
      GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!
      GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!
      GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!
      GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU FUCKEN INVADERS!

    • That’s they these people are trolling…. if rednecks are so stoooopid how the hell do they know about Pearl Harbor and the dates? Unless there is some strange school system in the South the focuses on Pearl Harbor is extremely unlikely that this has any sort of serious tone to it.

      I think this is just trolling to get people talking.

        • “Also in reality redneck transcends racial, ethnic, national and cultural boundaries.”

          First I heard of that. Usually when I hear “redneck”, “hick”, “hayseed”, or “hill billy”, it isn’t in reference to a black person from a rural area.

    • Japanese military just attack the military facility in Pearl Harbor and it’s surrounding. The victims are about 2000 soldiers and not more than 100 civilian casualties.

      Oh God…..
      What about nuke bombing in Hiroshima & Nagasaki ? American kill civilians NOT less than 500.000 and left harmful radiation for generations.

      That’s too cruel for revenge. Did they learn this in world history ? Or they just sleep in class ?

      • Apparently they don’t know the true purpose why we have these “History Courses”. Its to make sure that we WON’T REPEAT the bad parts of it.
        I really hope they realize this before WWIII starts.

        • Japan also claimed (and still do in revisionist textbooks) that their invasion and masscres were for the betterment of east asia and called it the co-prosperity sphere project.

          If japan won the war and “united” east asia, would development have been better for the countries? Probably (a good example would be Taiwan, which was under prolonged colonial japanese rule compared to mainland china). The thing is, neither results nor excuses based on moral high ground account for the fact that invasions and a-bombs never were meant for anything other than violent domination and vile intent in the first place; put simply, evil does not breed good, even if outcomes of either seem “positive” in certain ways.

        • “Two nukes sounds about right for what japan did to east asia”

          No. I can understand strategic reasons to bomb them. To avoid prolonged war and hundreds of thousands your own killed in land invasion. It’s not fair, but war ain’t fair.

          But if you say it’s alright for You to kill hundreds of thousands uninvolved people, because Their army did shit like that to someone else (and not even to your own, this I could understand), you’re no better than middle Africa tribals, or Islamic Fundamentalists.

          It’s never “about right”. You may have good reason to do so, “lesser evil” for so called “greater good”, but it doesn’t change fact what you’re doing is plain murder.

        • 21:36 I agree with you for the strategy argument but you’re misinformed on the reason. America would never have invaded mainland Japan. Russia already begun it’s invasion and America had no time so they dropped the bombs to force a surrender to America rather than Russia. (Which isn’t often spoken about because it doesn’t sound very nice; indiscriminately murdering hundreds of thousands* for the sake of promoting capitalism)

          *only a few hundred thousand died in the nuclear blasts themselves. But there was much more bombing than just those two. More people died in Osaka than either Hiroshima or Nagasaki from firebombing and more died in firebombing of Tokyo than the two put together.

        • Civilians did nothing to participate in what japan did as a nation to east asia. If anything, more military leaders should have been hanged at the end of the war, while the nukes totally should not have been dropped.

      • actually those nukes probably saved more lives than it destroyed, estimated cost of lives for land invasion were (depending on the source) 1.2million to about 4 million Japanese, and to 300k to 500k American soldiers. so in fact those bombs saved both Japanese and American lives. plus those 2 cities housed more military personnel at that time compared to any other cities. look shit up before you speak. Plus the US asked them to surrender several times before dropping the bomb. The Japan attacked unprovoked. Even though they attacked military facilities they did strafe civilian area’s. They did kill many civilians in many area’s so don’t get all they were right you were wrong on the US dumb ass.

        • “Saved lives” my ass. You know what those bombs lead to? Cold War! Along with that came McCarthyism and Vie-fucking-nam. Seems to me that we ended up losing a lot more than those hypothetical military casualties, and we ended up turning an entire generation or two of Americans into some of the most arrogant, overly-patriotic assholes that could ever exist in all the world’s history. Sad to think, but if Roosevelt didn’t die and leave Truman in charge, things might’ve gone much differently.

        • The japanese had already surrender before the US dropped the bombs. The US just wanted a reason to drop them. They asked for a unconditional surrender that the emperor obviously refused and they made a point by dropping a bomb… ohh excuse me, they dropped two, why the hell did they drop two bombs into non-military cities???
          There you go… but to be fair, imperial Japan is just on the same level as imperial US.

        • Quite frankly the attack on Pearl Harbour was a failure. The ships were docked, so they could start repairs on most of them right away. Nearly all personell that was onboard survived. 2k is not that big a loss for a attack of that scale. Civillians that are working in military areas basically agree to the dange of working there.

        • Oh for god’s sake (sorry non-religious people out there, it’s a figure of speech) – I think just about half of the replies to this comment are stupid rumors born of guys trying to bring up sparks. Why are you guys bringing up these rumors and discussing Pearl Harbor and the bombins?! IT’S IN THE PAST. IT WAS WRONG – EVERYONE AGREES (well apparently not the U.S. idiots who’s tweets are displayed in this subject’s pictures – I’m American myself and I agree that they are ass holes. That and some of the people posting here…) Don’t bring up the past unless you intend to learn from its mistakes or if you have a time machine, which I’m pretty sure most of us don’t have. In this case, since history books in both nations aren’t reputed to “be complete fact”, we’ll just have to say the lesson is “War is unfair and harsh and sometimes there’s communication fuck ups – but even with all those we can safely agree that atomic nukes should be banned and never used again. We don’t want a nuclear war.” Now shut up about the stupid sides on this. You’re making yourselves look like idiots – regardless of nationality.

    • I find it ironic that most of these twitterbrains probably didn’t even have anyone in their inbred families who died at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed by the Japanese are even making these inane idiotic comments. That shit happened 71 years ago.

      TIME TO MOVE ON, MOTHERFUCKERS.

      • Ugh I think about 85% of the Americans posting here have been saying that these guys are idiots. There are also some commenters of other nations saying stupid remarks – I’m not going to tell the whole damn nation to go burn in hell. That’s childish. That’s stupid. So shut up about filthy Americans. I know we’re not all that great, but if I look at any nation in the world right now I have to say none of us are really off to a great rep right now. It’ll get better – maybe America will have a turn of gov’t or maybe morals will flare back up – we dunno. Things happen that change a nation because there’s always good people in a nation. So PLEASE stop insulting me – I don’t agree with the idiotic Americans and it hurts when you guys group me in with them -.-

    • Amne, Serp…The minute individuals from the whole of America who made those comments REALLY know how to represent their nation…

      This is why the wounds of the past will never heal and the pain inflicted will never fade, when those self-righteous idiotic Twittards keep clawing at it…

      They just had to bring up the most painful war-related memories when most of these fools were not even born back then, nor did they even experience it…

      All these jeering yuppies just based the war on their mundane textbook knowledge and their grandparent’s tales (or just playing too much Call of Duty, and thinking they know it all) of the atrocities of WWII…

      They know not what pain and suffering the war inflicted on both sides, and the lose of family, friends, and loved ones to the ugliness of it all…

      Well, it is what it is…Their actions are clearly deliberate…

      Sore losers who b*tch like a little brat on the losing end of a multiplayer FPS deathmatch (and eventually RAGE-quits his team)…

      And smug, self-righteous jerks who think one win makes them king of the hill…

  • Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor…

    Only buffoons compare the World War II result with football match one.

    I know not all Yanks are bad, but most of them are. And very insensitive too. I have decent Yanks as close friends and none of them sounds like any of those wankers. Just look at those bollocks they posted.

    • if wanker americans are like that why should we hold back our insults. nywho out of bordom and not really trolling, ive decided to come up with some of my own.

      “Remember the war of 1812? Thats right you hicks, stay south and get off canada eh?”

      “How bout that Vietnam, still communist after these 40 years.”

      “Those North Koreans kicked your ass, and your still too chicken shit to attack them.”

      • You’re showing yourself to be as ignorant as most Americans. The only one of those that really makes sense is Vietnam.

        1812 was pretty much a stalemate militarily (the U.S. invasion of Canada failed, and then the British invasion of the U.S. failed SPECTACULARLY), but a really political victory for the U.S.

        The Korean War was a U.N. action, not a purely U.S. one, and it was essentially a success in that the Communists had overrun the whole peninsula, and the U.N. was at least successful in restoring the status quo ante bellum, more or less. In fact, the North Koreans were routed, and driven to the Chinese border, and it was only the numerically superior Chinese that pushed the U.N. forces back. To this day, it is only the threat of Chinese intervention that keeps North Korea from being invaded.

        Furthermore, we don’t have to take insults from people who can’t spell, punctuate, or capitalize.

        • If americans treated 1812 like a 2nd war of independence i as an american wouldnt be wondering if it was a fictional story created by anon posters on the net to make me google it. 1812 gets maybe 2-3 pages in the history lessons taught if that and is only briefly touched on in lessons 1812 is largely a forgotten war that is given no real signifigance to any american child

        • Yeah that spectacular fail of an invasion which captured and burnt Washington DC. Remember the Brits had more pressing matters like kicking Napoleons ass and couldn’t spare the men for a proper US invasion. Over here no one really cares about 1812 since it was just a sideline to a larger conflict. Americans seem to treat it like a 2nd war of independence though.

      • “Those North Koreans kicked your ass, and your still too chicken shit to attack them.”

        LOL at retards who think US lost Korean war, especially to north koreans. Learn some history, you might find out who really lost that one.

    • Plus, do any of them even know about the Tokyo air fire bombings? They killed more civilians than either of the nuclear bombs. Over 100,000 dead and the rest of the supposed 1.5 million residents were critically injured or lost their homes.

      It was going to be considered THE revenge of Pearl Harbor, but… people here in American don’t even know about it? I don’t even remember being taught about it in school. :/

    • Obviously only buffoons compare WW2 to a football game unless of course there is ongoing animosity between the two countries. Japanese anime usually portrays Americans as greedy, imperialistic, stupid, power hungry too – look at the anime Read or Die for example or the anime Full Metal Panic where Americans are not the bad guys but are seen as stupid, ineffective, etc. Japan of course has to thank America that they’re not North Korea because Chinese/Russian invasion of Japan would follow or Reds would foster a fifth column in Japan. America also introduced a new constitution to Japan and became Japan’s number one market place to allow Japanese to become filthy rich and have nothing better to do with their time but produce lolita porno. Of course I exaggerate and generalise but Japan owes a lot to America, as does Western Europe who would be part of Soviet Russia instead. Best is to realise that no-one is entirely innocent and when poorly educated people post comments on Twitter, it does not mean more educated people don’t say that Austrians speak the Austrian language or some other such wisdom.

      But to make a whole article about this is silly. Obviously this is pure silliness from these fans and people should not take this seriously.

  • the japanese women fought until the very end. also the officiating was very debatable and if properly ref’d, it might of been the other way around. Americans are just sore losers in the face of defeat and jerks if they win. my 2 cents but very well played game, alittle dissapointing for waking up early to catch the game but it was good.

  • Yes, yes, make a few morons that post comments about WWII out to be an entire nation of over 300 million people. So yes, we do have morons, but I’ve seen comments on here that are equatable. I garuntee you, the vast majority of Americans are glad we won the gold, but without the WWII comments. But what posts where talked about in this story? Oh yeah, the ones that would get a “good” reaction from the Japanese on here, some of which have posted some fairly racist stuff themselves, so we have the pot calling the kttle black.

    • americans are far famous for being racist and also Japanese are racist as well gaijin is a despective word for racist against anyone that is not Japanese in the end, this kind of comments from morons stating this is a revenge for something that happened to different people more than 50 to 60 years ago its total ignorance and also intolerance, yes its lame yes its not the whole 300millions americans that share the same idea.

      but I believe some people you be blocked from every internet connection if they’re gonna act like that. or keep these comments to themselves, because no one cares to hear or read about how ignorant they are over a sport event result.

      • God what a retarded weaboo
        Gaijin is short for Gaikokujin which just means person from another country
        Retards want to put more meaning into the words, think what you want but don’t spread false info

    • Welcome to the real world.

      Since you’re too ignorant to learn anything, let me teach you this: people in the world hate us for being intolerant, ignorant and arrogant. Sure, not all of us are morons. But there are way too many morons here proudly calling themselves “Americans”, enough to convince people out there that most -if not all- Americans are morons.

      Also, your comment won’t help anything. People will notice ignorance and arrogance in your words.

      Talking about a pot calling the kettle black.

      • They were probably looking up information on the 2001 Michael Bay movie, and discovered to their surprise that Pearl Harbor was a real event. Same thing happened with Pearl Harbor’s (the movie’s) spiritual predecessor, Titanic.

    • This post made me mad..The sheer stupidity in these people are baffling…I just hope they don;t procreate…gives me goosebumps just thinking about what monsters their ugly kids will become!!
      I hope Arefact removes it..VERY Discriminatory and downright IGNORANT OF YOU ALL!!!

      FUCKING SHEESH TO THE MAX!!!!!

    • I understand, however it’s amusing to me how every time I meet an American in a chat room, or in person (at least where I live) there seems to be about an 80% chance that he/she is a brain-dead, illiterate fucknut I wouldn’t piss on to save from burning to death. That said, I’m sure most of you are fine people 😉

      Probability is a funny thing…

  • ServantAvenger says:

    This is downright fucking IGNORANT America. Let the ghost ship sail already, since the death toll of pearl harbor was only a little over 1,000. Nevermind the bombings of nagisaki and Hiroshima killed a (cumulative) total of probably 200,000 or so. I’m sick of seeing this kind of shit come from my country, and I bet half of it is from my state.

  • in other words, “we already killed 200000 of your civilian polulation but that wasn’t a revenge, the real revenge is a female soccer match that happens 70 years later TAKE THAT JAPAN!!! ”

    yeah sure why not :p

      • i think destroying the japanese military was more justice than revenge,
        but the bombs were pure “revenge” , i.e: a bad thing to do and forbidden by every tribunal today, if you take revenge on someone you go to jail like a criminal.

        • they weren’t given a chance. Relearn history. The US considered giving them a chance, but didn’t. They didn’t even give them a chance in the three days between Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Because Japan might have tried to intercept the bombers.
          Japan didn’t resist the a-bombs because they hadn’t the resources to fight every US plane that flies over Japan. Do you think that sounds like someone who was warned about a-bombs but decided to not give up?

        • Actually, they were given time after the USA said they were going to drop these bombs, to surrender and they didn’t.
          While that doesn’t make it okay, its not like they weren’t given a chance.

  • Um…are we forgetting the anti-yank posts Japanese do on 2ch ALL THE TIME? Why are so many of you butt kissing. All the people in the world find reasons to hate each other face it. Japanese think they are more superior to everyone else in the world anyway who cares what either group thinks. Lol@omghowcanamericanssaythatoutrage!.

    Fuck the Americans.
    Fuck the Japanese.
    and everyone else in between.

    • Nah, only a few seem to be refering to historical events and fewer still – indicative of vengeful intention. The others are more like – let’s dedicate this show of fitness and skill by our respective citizens to a geographical location right about midway from our mainlands. Or – despite what our idiot ancestors did, we’d rather have a feast and a soccer match with you. Nothing wrong with that.

  • Racism is not the sole or even majority province of White Americans. To believe otherwise is to be as ignorant as those who are being racist. Sadly, it is a global issue and it’s always those idiots with the smallest brains that seem to have the biggest mouths. They do NOT speak for the majority of us. At least I’d like to think that is the case.

  • pot calling kettle black.
    uneducated hicks rambling nonsense towards a xenophobic nation
    both nations aren’t what they used to be.
    both have lost a lot of respect worldwide
    nothing new
    yaaawn

  • Those idiots with the tweets weren’t even alive/involved during the WWII era. Dumb fucking nationalists. I’m US born but won’t take pride in this country or any country if I was born their because nationalism breeds ignorance.

      • “While they weren’t alive, they may have lost relatives in WW2”

        This doesn’t give anyone the right to hate – especially that soldiers and anyone working for/supporting the army MUST be aware that they may get killed by the enemy, especially during war.

        Pearl Harbor was a miliaty base, Japan had full right to attack it. Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was completely uncalled for (over 300 civilians died, compare that to Pearl Harbor civilian casualties) and it’s Japan who should be holding a grudge against the US, not the other way around… not that holding a grudge for 70 years is the right thing to do, but America certainly went overboard with their silly display of power.

        Like misbehaved preschoolers when you destroy their sandcastle, they immediately toss sand and all their toys at you.

        • Go to a map of Nagasaki. Beside the baseball field in the centre of the town there’s a memorial on the bomb site. The port wasn’t touched by the bomb.

          The reason they didn’t target Osaka or Tokyo was because they already obliterated all the civilian neighbourhoods in those cities.

        • Ummmm Japan knew since 1942 (yes, that early) that they could not win. Their refusal to surrender in the face of constant defeat to a superior enemy caused their destruction. Japan made it plain to America that it would take the destruction of their entire armed forces to defeat them and so America granted their wishes. WW2 was a naval war as far as the Pacific goes and Nagasaki a port where they made military ships (like Musashi) and so a perfectly legitimate target. Hiroshima was a bit of a reach but what alternative would you have taken? Tokyo or Osaka? The death tolls would have been horrendous. Japan should have surrendered after Midway when it lost the bulk of it’s fleet and their refusal to do so led to the invasion of Okinawa and the bombing of mainland Japan.

  • These comments of some idiots about Soccer and comparing it with war is making me feel that the humanity is doomed to a life of idiocracy!

    All I know US won against Japan in the Olympics

    These kinds of people makes you feel less proud of your county…

  • if you take these statements to be a personification of what real -halfway intelligent- Americans are like, than you are just as stupid as the ones who posted them to be quite honest. These incidents are like stupid in stereo…

      • I hope there will be sane enough people living near them who will drag them out of their houses and slap them with several volumes of history textbooks. They sure need their proper history education (along with a good whack in the head with a hardcover book).

  • These really are a minority in the United States, despite what everybody in comments wants to believe. As for the rest of you appalled by the atomic bombs, quit the politically correct nonsense.

    That was a war and era where if you had a new weapon, you used it. Whether you hurt some person’s feelings or not didn’t matter since the price of that war was a lot more than some police act in Kosovo or similar. Germany and Japan were working on the very same atomic weapons, so knock it off already.

    • No ‘candaians’ were ever involved in the entire baltimore campaign, much less burning of white house. Americans however, were definitely involved in burning down York (canada’s capital and present day toronto) LOL

      Interesting how canadians have to grab onto slimmest of tangents to define their non-existent sense of nationhood. Quit bitching, and let’s merge. Ditch your naive multi-culturalism and unite for fuck’s sake. It’s like you want to be world’s bitch.

  • This is the MOST STUPID THING I see for people of USA, wtf is this.
    1- These people are stupid, what kind of education they receive?, First call themselves “Americans” and USA is not even 50% of America.

    2 – A war is unacceptable, horrible, no matter who wins or loses the life of a human being is respected no matter which country is.

    And they recite the nonsense of Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it’s amazing how stupid can be, it’s amazing they do not think it, is incredible to talk about things that have not even lived!

    I can only say Thank God I’m not from USA because that people, of that comments, have no brain.

    I’m would give me very ashamed to see people of my country have this low level of intelligence in this 2012.

    It’s amazing … U_U

  • This is going to hurt me to say this.

    I hate Uneducated Americans. This happen 70+ years ago and we got INSTANT revenge the day the two bombs dropped.

    9/11, is almost the exact same thing to the US as Japan as the almost 3,000 that were in 9/11 as to the 80,000 that were LOST in Nagasaki alone, not counting 166,000 at Hiroshima. Even add the Pearl Harbor’s 2,400 deaths to the count add little to the could be raising the number to around 5,400.

    5,400 US Lives lost in two attacks 246,000 lives lost in Japan’s two attacks.

    This is the very reason I say medical science should allow some abortions, because if two bigot, dumb and self-important FAIL-hards mate, this shit happens.

    I’m black and I reside in the US and have almost no true desire to support or degrade this country but if this is the shit that happens and got reported, Then maybe a few countries were right about America been dumb, uneducated and ignorant.

    I weep for the US. Plus, I can almost say with a strong belief that 80% of these Tweets came for Christians that are ” Tolerate and Understanding”.

  • “where the USA received a drubbing at the hands of Japan’s team in 2011”

    Obviously the author of the article didn’t watch the 2011 game.

    The Americans dominated the first half and missed so many easy chances. It could have easily been 3-0 at half time.

    The Americans then took the lead twice in the game only to end up losing in a penalty shootout.

    How is this a “drubbing”?

  • My great uncle was one of Doolittle’s Tokyo Raiders, and if he were still alive, he would have been pale in the face to see the kinds of idiots who post on Twitter and Facebook.

    Come to think of it, he died the same year Twitter was founded. Damn you, Jack Dorsey!

  • I feel shame for being a human after reading such stuff. It’s Good the end comes to the weakest and the most pathetic people that exist… Why people can’t be nice?…It’s just sad…

    P.S.: watch “God Bless America” and come to my side… But don’t worry,… I’ll kill myself at the end after all “Cleaning”, so to be no harm for good people left…

  • Oh for fuck sake man. There’s being tactless and then there’s these shining examples of wasted DNA that should have been wiped off their mother’s lips instead of absorbed into the uterus. And people wonder why we of the United States get ragged on the way we do.

  • Americans: “You stupid Japanophiles. You’re clearly obsessed with anime and don’t realize how terrible of a place Japan is. They treat women horribly, are racist, immigration, gaijin not allowed, shame culture, hikikomori, mt. fuji suicide, blahblahblahblahblah.”

    Meanwhile America is…
    – Fat
    – Racist towards the first black president
    – Calls men “pussies” if they are seen as weak
    – Is obsessed with violence
    – Is obsessed with masculinity
    – Has among the worst education of any developed nation
    – Is ruled by Corporations
    – Is ruled by Christian idiots
    – Is hyper-religious
    – Largely doesn’t believe in evolution
    – Largely doesn’t believe in climate change
    – Largely doesn’t know what a theory is
    – Largely believes in the death penalty
    – Largely thinks of Muslims and terrorists
    – Largely thinks of Atheists as immoral sexual deviants and sadists
    – Is obsessed with large breasts even more than Japan
    – Doesn’t vote
    – Has no idea what is going on in politics
    – Thinks that Obama is a Muslim
    – Thinks that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction
    – Watches bad reality TV
    – Thinks that Americans are world heroes
    – Plays Call of Duty and Angry Birds
    – Calls men “fags” if they are gay
    – Thinks that gay men are paedophiles
    – Thinks that Pagans are Satanists
    – Thinks that Israel is an innocent persecuted country while Palestinians are all terrorists

    Japan is a country with plenty of problems. But how many times do you you’re the “you’re a weeaboo” as a way of saying “my country is so superior to Japan in any way”. Spend more time criticizing yourself before others. No country is perfect. And you know what’s just as stupid as “weaboos” who think Japan is a perfect paradise? Stupid prideful Americans who think America is number one in everything.

    Heck, I think it’s worse. At least people who think that other countries are better have the humility to see the positives in other countries. People who think their own country is perfect are nothing more than nationalist shitheads who use their nation of birth as a cheap self esteem boost to feel better than everyone else.

    And no, I don’t think America is a terrible place and Japan is amazing. Japan isn’t even so much as approaching, say, gay marriage yet. But what was that Christian saying about the log in people’s eyes? Hmmmm?

  • Remember, if you see anyone talking about shit like this, remind them that Japan only killed about 3 of America’s 1750 civilian deaths in WWII. America killed the rest (50 from friendly fire at Pearl Harbour and 1700, mostly Japanese, in concentration camps)

    • And nuked two big cities full of civilians! The ones that weren’t vaporized instantly or were burned alive in the fire had cancer and/or slow terrible death. Woman, elderly, children and babies included.

      Not that Japan as a country were poor victims in WW2 but US as a country were far from the “Hero” image they like to brag about.

  • When are you idiots going to get it?!

    The WHOLE WORLD is populated by human beings who take pleasure in killing, humiliating, destroying, minimizing, judging, etc.

    How many times a day do you see Japanese go off on the dumb shit that the Chinese do.

    Do you know why people are so hateful?

    It’s FEAR! People are afraid of other cultures and races because they do not know them, it’s a fucking old story that nobody listens to. Ignorance and hate is born of fear.

    Stop trying to claim idiotic moral victories over stupid shit people say, it means absolutely nothing, STOP GETTING MAD OVER STUPID SHIT.

    Be cool babies!

  • These are the people who make USA’s damaged reputation even worse. The people are a country’s mirror. Good job making your country look shit and retarded. Dont wonder why so many here overseas hate USA.

  • I hope no one here makes a singing joke “I was born to hit an American!” thing…
    Seems like these posts are trolls but you never know…

    If anything, the ones that should harbor “a Grudge” against Japan are the countries that were invaded and abused in WWII like us in the Philippines. But do you hear us saying those things? Maybe some minority, but so far, haven’t heard anything.
    It was freaking 70 or so years ago!
    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE!?

  • I don’t see Japan saying “Take that Americans!! This is for the 2 atomic bombs” every time they win over America.

    Even Benjamin Franklin said “To be humble to superiors is duty, to equals is courtesy, to inferiors is nobility.”

    Show humility in victory, and grace in defeat.

  • Really? American bloggers are calling women’s soccer gold win over Japan revenge for pearl harbor? Just how retarded can you be? Isn’t america supposed to be the high and mighty- the all-tolerant country of freedom and equality? Japan just had the worst nuclear disaster in history a year ago and you mock Japan like this? you weep over pearl harbor, 9/11, hurricane Katrina, and the U.S. campaign in Iraq/Afghanistan- all the American deaths in these events combined still do not add up to the total declared dead from the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami- 19,000 including the still-missing victims. Olympic spirit? Yeah right- Think about what you put on Twitter and Facebook before you make a fool of yourself.

  • Meh, Get used to it world. Even the idiots in our country have freedom of speech and a “dumb” phone with a twitter account built in.

    You look for haters, you’ll find them in almost any country.

    Japan has their share of bigot assholes too. Just Youtube “white pig go home” to find some.

    And it’s not exclusive to one country or another. Every country has their share of assholes.

  • It’s really nice to see a lot of Americans apologizing on these idiots behalf (even though its supposed to be them apologizing). I’m glad beautiful Americans like you guys still remain and I’m sure there are a lot of you out there. Too bad when it comes to the internet it’s always the douches that get recognized more than the smart people.

  • WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!? Do they really have to talk like that? Seriously, what if Japan won? What then? I saw the soccer game and honestly I was rooting for Japan. This is or almost similar to The Hunger Games situation. Japan, I am sorry for these idiots to talk to you like this. I love you Japan and always will.

  • As a proud half Japanese half Irish dude, I would like to say a couple things.
    1-
    Pearl harbour was nothing, I repeat, NOTHING in comparison to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. If its revenge we’re talking about, then its us that should be doing it. If you take the damage done to Japan, and increase it by a scale factor of about 10, because the US is like 10 times bigger, then the damage we should do to make it fair and square is like wiping new York off the face of the planet. You want to make it fair, let’s make it fucking fair dickheads!
    2-
    Dudes, this shit happened like 70 years ago when pretty much none of you overly inbred redhead lumps of meat weren’t even developed into sperm. It’s history. You guys are just tryin to find an excuse to find a reason to assert your dominance and make sure that you’re the best. But you’re not. The average BMI of Americans (born and raise in th US) must be over 9000 that of Japanese. Also, technology -wise, you’re lagging like a fat American kid in a race against Mo Farah or Usain Bolt. America isn’t THAT great.
    3-
    This is women’s football. WOMEN’S FOOTBALL. What the fuck. Who cares. Women should be in the kitchen. (ok forget that comment). What really matters is the men’s football. Did the US even qualify? Japan’s men got to the semi finals. We win.
    And yes, you may say that football is like the least popular sport over there, but that further raises the question: why the fuck are you claiming revenge on a sort you don’t give a rats shit about?
    4-
    All the women in the nadeshiko Japan teams are either working or housewives. They begin practice at 5 in the afternoon. Compare that to America’s team, or most other teams. It’s just different

    Okay I’m sorry to any non stereotypical redheads who aren’t racist who I might have offended, but this had to be said. Thnx

  • To be frank, I like Japan’s culture, manga, anime, pop culture, nice people, and ect. It’s the corrupt people I don’t like such as Ishihara and the other corrupt people that caused the national scandal within the schools and the police, almost as if the schools promote bullying.

    Of course, America is getting just as bad with these racist comments. Indeed quite sad how Japan view American life in such a bad manner.

  • Yet again, it’s these ignorant inheritants of hatred that make me ashamed to call myself an American.
    I seriously hope that people in other countries realize that all Americans aren’t like the useless pieces of crap that tweet this shit. The Twitter people really should find a way to filter this garbage. First amendment rights or not. If it was MY company I’d cancel their accounts faster than you say “ugly Americans!”. And I’d let ’em know why too! In no uncertain terms.

    MWH

  • What the fuck does Pearl Harbor have anything to do with a soccer game? Really, I don’t see the comparison to it. -.-
    Now, if it is supposed to be compared to it then looks like shit got real back in 2011 because Japan won that Pearl Harbor.
    Get over it people, it happened and it’s been done for 67 years now.

    On behalf of all the Other people in this country, I apologize for their stupidity. Looks as though America has been doing that quite a bit lately…

  • “Long live to the greatest country: America” (?!?)

    These people are as stupid as they are ignorants and self-centered: America isn’t a country, the US are. America is a continent.
    Fom this we get where this thoughts come from. Go back to school, buddy, you surely need it.

  • The US knew and let pearl harbor happen, just like they let 9/11 happen.
    And still they gloat over the murder of millions, the destruction of a city and a huge natural disaster?
    Not to mention the concentration camps where they enslaved japanese people during WWII.

    If someone wants revenge, it’s probably Japan.
    But I’m sure they’re trying to create a giant monster, or a girl with godly powers or a giant robot to have revenge someday.

  • If you aren’t into anime or console video games, what else does the average American know about Japan? They used to make cheap cars that are just as expensive as American ones and WW2? That’s pretty much it.

  • It’s all about team mentality, whenever teams are envolved there will always be people bringing up the past or saying ignorant things.

    In this case, lack of education also plays a big part. The United States was already in WWII before the bombing of Pearl Harbor took place. Our pilots were embedded with the British while they were bombing Japan. The Japanese government knew this, and Pearl Harbor was the retaliation. I’m an American, so I won’t say it was justified, but all governments are corrupt. I think it was first started with Commodore Perry, then the pressure just added up, and Pearl Harbor happened, in which the United States played the innocent party and the blame got turned onto Japan.

  • In short, stupidity is everywhere, and is unfortunately infectious. Check the comments around the net after any meeting, media event, accident, or competition.

    Wash, rinse, repeat.

    Ignorance knows no borders, no nationality, no religion, no ethnic background. Every group is guilty of it at least part of the time, it’s just that we all hope to eventually learn from our stupidity and mistakes, become better people, and build a better world.

    The problem is just that simple. The solution, however, may be far more difficult. People seem to cling to ignorance in many cases, and never want to hear or understand the truth. They have many reasons, many excuses why they act that way. Some may hold weight, at least to the individual, many are likely just an extension of an ‘us versus them’ mindset.

    We all think our group or ourselves are the best thing out there, until we face something that makes us question that. We either lose and cry, or win and brag, digging in our heels onto whoever we’ve ‘beaten’. It takes an altogether different kind mindset to overcome that base thinking, and a lot of effort.

    Whether people on the whole are actually willing to put forth that effort is yet to be seen. There are a lot of good people out there. Unfortunately there’s bad apples in there too, and they screw with things for the rest of us.

  • I am Japanese.
    I understand that there is a bad apple every country.
    I do not doubt that many Americans is conscientious.

    May be negative, but it was frustrating, players fought fair and square both were great.
    Than talk about the past, but now she wants to talk about our play.

    Congratulations America gold medal!
    I want to win the next Japan, now I’m to bless America!

  • Pearl Harbor this, Pearl Harbor that….at least the japs attacked a military objective. Americans literally burned two citites to the ground and murdered hundreds of thousands which had nothing to do with the war. So if you think about it, they had their revenge a lot of years ago. Deal with it.

  • Revenge for Pearl Harbor? I thought we already got revenge when we nuked Japan for it. (Not once, but twice) These inbred, boozed up, bigots are an embarrassment to other Americans. Also, from what I can tell, (at least from the profile pictures) I’m gonna guess that many of those comments are from young ignorant people people.

  • It’s not all out in the boonies. I live in new york fucking city, a world-class megalopolis and probably america’s only true one (if H.P. Lovecraft’s statement on the matter is anything to go by). There are no rednecks here unless they are tourists. But let me tell you this secret: there is absolutely NO SHORTAGE of ass-backwards racism, hatred, whatever you want to say, against Japan and its people to be found in such a “diverse” place. A perfect example is my grandmother. I’m sure there’s a generational thing at play here, but she’s not the only lady over 60 I’ve met who would be happy to nuke Japan again, just to get that extra bit of revenge for pearl harbor or whatever the fuck. The baby boomer generation is no better, having inherited these ridiculous stigmas about Japan vis-a-vis WWII. It’s discouraging. The demonization of the Japanese by Americans (quite a project in propaganda!) is clearly still endemic.

  • i hate when fucking ignorant people dealing with japan keep bringing pearl harbor when they don’t even know what was that about and the cause of it, I bet most of them don’t even know where it even is! fucking racist pricks…

    • Frankly rest of the world is far more racist than Americans fundamentally speaking. You will speak about racism when china elects (or puts up) Uyghr chairman, or when your minorities protest and your prime minister personally endorses the messages instead of pissing them off calling them ‘burakumin’ or ‘ainu trash’.

  • Thing is, we all need to focus not on our differences, but rather on the traits that we share & unite us as human beings.

    Not the least of which is the fact that every nation has it’s share of retards…& apparently they’re all on the internet.

  • ShadowGryphon says:

    Also…
    “there is some doubt as to whether such sentiments are really held by as small a minority as the majority of Americans prefer to maintain.”

    This is a cowardly and bullshit comment, given the popularity of Japanese products here in the US and the myriad fans of Japanese culture in the US.

    This comment needs to be redacted.

  • ShadowGryphon says:

    Three things:
    1: the idiot called “Jesus wears FUBU”… a black guy, first, calling the Japanese “niggas” (didn’t know the Japanese were black) and then using the pejorative “jap” and this mook would be the first to scream like a little girl about racism if it were against him. what a waste of sperm
    2: these idiots are twitter users, that alone should clue you into how moronic they are
    3:And people here in the US wonder why I want to go back to Japan.

  • So when the Americans loose, they act like fucking babies and cunts and show poor sportsmanship, and when they win, they still act like fucking cunts and show poor sportsmanship. God I fucking hate living here sometimes. And have they not even seen the photos of two teams shaking hands, buddying up, and being nice and friendly to eachother? It’s just a fucking game, but since America seems to think we have to be #1 at everything they act like assholes. No wonder most of the world hates us.

  • ye god bless America. god bless the country that killed countless ppl around the world for profit under the fake belief “we are doing for humanity’s justice and free will”. they had to come with WW2 “thats for pearl harbor” say y did Japan attacked in the first place? did they just woke up 1 day n said “hey screw America lets attack it just for the fun of it”? but nah they all look alike right? lets just throw some bombs n blow up citys filled with innocent ppl.god bless america such a GREAT country…would still b using leafs to cover their body if not for other countries share their knowledge. heres a new word for ur vocabulary oh “great America”, humility. even tho Japan lost the war, lost alot of ppl, lost the game they proly still got more humility. dont get me wrong im no Japan fan or supporter just trying to defend the prevention of what all wars are made off, make point of who got the “biggest dick”. now if u understand what im trying to say grats ur a wise person that knows what the fuck is wrong with this world if not…well then get ur head off ur uncle Sam’s ass and wake up to reality. this world if far from perfect and sure as hell we aren’t making it better.

  • You guys are just as pigheaded as those that wrote those comments. True it was extremely distasteful for them to write those comments but how come anytime someone does shit like that you blame it on rednecks? or as dude claimed slave owners? Really? And he’s bringing that up? Thats just as bad as pearl harbor. Why do you all not just say, they’re dumb. End of story. Like rednecks did that … srsly…

  • We’re in 2012 and still we see that kind of behavior. Kinda sad to say that racism was/still is a big issue in today society and it ain’t gonna stop any soon. I’m not American and that kind of thought shocks me to the core. Being from Quebec, Canada, i know that my province is targeted by hate from other provinces, tho I’m not saying every single Canadians hate my province but sadly the proportion is high and the same goes from Quebec resident toward the rest of Canada, and yes I’m ashamed. Guess living in harmony with one another is a no no…Still its good to see and read that many have a brain inside that big watermelon we have on our shoulder instead of air for some.

  • grats to the athletes but more seriously i think that people that went full retard like this just blew up the sport spirit i mean you have no rights to take a sport victory for yourself when all you did is watch sports on the tv. This most likely smells butthurt all over the place. Also attention whores looking to trash talk when they have the occasion.

  • I for one congratulate the Japanese team for putting up a hard fought game. As an American, I would like to say that the words of a few don’t express the words of the many. The majority are much better people than these, “chosen” posts, chosen by press to show the lack of intelligence and our short sightedness to everything. By all accounts it was a great game and both sides played well. Kudos to you Japan, you won the world cup, and a Silver medal, be proud!

  • This is why many hate Americans. They cause so much troubles that they are regarded with hatred. Many are
    hostile towards Americans while others don’t like
    supporting Americans but are forced to. You can beat
    they will cry and bitch if ever mention that they
    are losing the latest troubles they started. They are
    getting hit from all over ever since that tragic
    hit(may dead rest in peace). Americans just locked themselves up, spying on it self, economy broken,
    big millions with no jobs, huge many losing homes, etc.
    Its no wonder 99% of them are fucking stupid.

  • Comments like these make me ashamed and embarrassed to be an American. The amount of idiocy and ignorance is nothing short of astonishing. As I have said before, Pearl Harbor was a legitimate MILITARY target, our retaliation… dropping atom bombs on two CIVILIAN targets is NOTHING to be proud of. And regardless of that, IT WAS 60 FUCKING YEARS AGO. Japan has been our ally ever since and is one of only THREE constitutional democracies left on the fucking planet.

  • i hate these kinds of people. They are always the kinds that end up giving the good folk some shitty tag/label that doesn’t match them.

    not to mention pearl harbor was quite a long time ago. those involved are meeting their end anyways (all sides). on that i dont think you can do anything wrong in war… since its war.

  • OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10 people from America are retarded and insensitive, it probably balances out the 10 people from Japan that are stupid as well. Only America has 3x Japans population, so we are allowed 3x the amount of retards.

    I love all the Anti-American comments though you Euro fucks must have been licking your chops waiting for your chance to spew your typical Anti American sewage. Take a shower and stop sucking dicks.

  • man is amazing who much of an ASSholes the NORTH Americans can be, 2 Nukes weren’t enough to “Pay back for Pearl Harbour”?

    United-Statians (that’s NOT the only country in America), are responsible for most of the crap that happens in the world and they still act like they’re the heroes.

    • I suggest you see what happens when any other country gets control of 22.5% of world GDP, 1st tech and 3rd ranked manpower, along with half of whole continent. You will be wishing they could be as restrained as US.

      Peace spoiled bitches like you need to check yourself.

  • I’m so glad I don’t live in the mainland USA… All these “I’m ashamed to be American” comments made me recall a what my friend went though when visiting various European countries: got stink eye and cold shoulders in the beginning but when people found out they were from Hawaii, they were greeted quite kindly by the exact same people! Somehow, Hawaii =/= USA in the minds of most people 😛

    • People don’t see Hawaii the same way they see USA
      Hawaii if full of welcoming people, dance and pineapples, unlike USA.

      Well French Guiana=/=France either, even if it is part of France.
