NHK “So Sorry About Hitler Shirt!”

TakafumiHorie-NHK-Hitler-Shirt-4

Japanese broadcaster NHK have apologized for the “offensive” shirt worn by ex-con guest during their “Afternoon Live” talk show, with the culprit being none other than Livedoor founder Takafumi Horie, wearing a shirt depicting Hitler saying “no war”.

Horie’s shirt prompted numerous complaints and caused the show’s co-host to apologize during the program; responding to the flood of inquiries via Twitter, Horie stated that he was shocked by the chaos his shirt had sewn and that it was meant to be an “anti-war message”:

I have worn a shirt showing Hitler making a peace sign with the words ‘NO WAR’ a number of times, but this is the first time (my wearing this kind of shirt) went viral.

Whichever way you look at it, wishing for peace is the only message you can see from this T-shirt.

The offensive shirt:

TakafumiHorie-NHK-Hitler-Shirt-2

TakafumiHorie-NHK-Hitler-Shirt-3

TakafumiHorie-NHK-Hitler-Shirt-4

This has not been the first instance that Hitler/Nazi based outfits have caused controversy in Japan, as even idol groups have been accused of supporting such “embodiments of evil”…

    What seems to be the problem?

    I'm a pole, and I do not feel offended.

    I'm not offended by this either. I'm FAR more offended by the German chancellor that wants Poland to open it's border to Arabic invaders.

    That is borderline sabotage there.
    Being offended to it is mild, I'm outraged.

    When visiting my Polish relatives when they were still alive they often remarked that occupation of Germans was better than Soviet occupation. German were strict but fair unless you were a Jew. Their soldiers didn't steal and were punished if they did. Soviets were thieves who stole everything that wasn't nailed down and sent it back to the Soviet Union.
    After the war one of my uncles went to town and was told to get on a bus by some Russian soldiers. He wound up in a Soviet labor camp for three years for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and the Russian fucks never told his family what happened.
    He just disappeared. After three years he was let go and how he got back to Poland was up to him. Fuck Russia and Russians!

    I don't think that -ANY- sort of occupation is good, regardless of how invaders act.

    It wasn't only jews either back then, but I need not to review whole history here for sake of making a point, right?

    Not really, they are currently the most right-wing of the first world countries, nevermind Hitler was friendly to Japan.

    And since Nazis had great aesthetics it's easy to fetishize them.

    If he had succeeded, hollywood would NOT be run be jackasses who are STILL hell bent 40 years after murdering Bruce Lee to CONTINUE white-washing Asians out of the cultural landscape to make sure that the joke that was mickey-rooney's distorted buck-toothed mockery of a "Japanese" man is the first and only thing that people think of when the word "Asian" is mentioned. The redhead johannasberg live-action insult-adaptation to Ghost In The Shell being the latest example. Pity.

    You dont know what you're talking about. Hollywood is ran by blacks and liberals now. Scarlett was cast because she's a feminist, they marketed Ghost in the Shell as to be fighting some "injustice" which is the Liberal's rally call, thus the lesbian scene with a black woman and the phrase "they created her, but they cant control her." in all of the previews.

    Of course it feels strange Hitler saying No War. Not very likely in reality.

    Oh sure 100% of the blame goes to hitler. Let us forget stalin also started that shat against the Poles, and the French who asked to be assraeped again for what they did after WWI.

    At least besides the French, they all made great spiced sausages.

    And he is not 100% wrong about greedy shats who all happens to be evil kiks, really bad a lot of good and decent Jews, as well as other groups, have to suffer greatly like many other groups, just so the evil kiks of that generation can get away scot free and use that shat to gain bulletproof protection.

    Go ahead, call me an anti-Semite, when I personally have done more for the state of Isreal, and my people have done more for the survival of one large group of WW2 nazi-Jews without thanks, than you. Besides, Isreali-Muslim fuckup was just another purposeful fuckups, by the same group that did the Indi-Paki fuckup.

    Oh and all this will probably get deleted, just like comments supporting "shat-tier" anime, but leaves out conflict seeking and anime hating comments from normies who don't watch anime.

    Keep doing that and wonders why should anyone disable ad-block.

    Lol, and hitler the shat was also a true war hero, the equivalent to a recipient of Distinguished Service Cross or Navy Cross. Modern people forget that when they ask, WHY?

    Reminds me of that scientist landed something on a comet and had people bitching about his shirt choice (made by female friend) instead of his big achievement. Guy was harassed so bad about it while apologizing started crying. You'll never make these people by caving into to them imo.

    When I saw it, I thought to myself that becoming a sociopath and trying to murder off those empty-minded angsty masses wouldn't be such a bad thing.
    Though a bit hypocritical.

    the anti-war message in this shirt is worn more as a fashion statement then a political one. japan pretty much exists in a fucking bubble cut off from the rest of the world. any one with a reasonable amount of common sense and global awareness would understand how tacky this is.

    he probably could have shown up with a fucking swastika on his forehead and no one in the studio would have saw a problem.

    Swastika is a part of Buddhism so he would actually look like a monk.

    Are you refering to swastika or sauwastika? Because both are way older than buddhism

    Comment by Anonymous

    shit thats a good point and i didnt consider that. but still think they should know better. even if they arent personally offended, they should at least know its in bad taste.

    the guy doesnt even actually apologize. his first instinct is to defend himself.

    I think it is good that Japan does not have the ridiculous PC culture and sensibilities that the western world has.
    Getting offended by everything and everything is ridiculous and people should try a lot harder to curb that.

    The problem is postcensoring. People have forgotten that just like the right to feel offended exists, so does the right to offend others.
