A Lesson In Social Media Ignorance: Earthquake In Japan 2011

WTF People?

A friend recently shared a link to an image featuring a collection of facebook statuses regarding the recent events in Japan. All of which are blatantly ignorant and insensitive, to such a degree that it most likely will qualify as black humor for some. I am not sure the history of the image, however I’d assume they were gathered using something like YourOpenBook.org (A search on the site reveals many similar postings).

  1. I saw this as well, and was equally disgusted. Not only does this display blatant insensitivity, but the levels of willful ignorance are difficult to absorb. If they bothered to use the devices with which they posted their vapid stupidity to actually do a little research, then they… wait, wait, THAT would require common sense.

    What the hell was I thinking…

    That’s America for you. Honestly, I feel bad for them, and its sad that the US would say such things, considering almost everyone that was alive during WWII is almost dead, if not all dead, and to judge a country based on things that happened in the past, and pretty much has nothing to do with anyone alive right now, is just as blind and ignorant as a christian claiming your going to hell for not “Participating” in their fairly land fantasies. I’m not surprised by this at all, and it really is disgusting.

      This is a handful of people. Obviously their remarks are ridiculous. This is not representative of the hundreds of millions of people who have facebooks in America.

        not so fast, yesterday our son told me that in his 8th grade class there were a lot of kids that were racist. I asked if he meant the anti musilim thing and he said “no, the japanese” they were talkin how the Japs deserved it for pearl harbor!! so I believe it is much bigger than a few meathead facebook tards!!

        • No sense of history, I guess…..an opportunity for them to learn about Commodore Perry and gunboat diplomacy? Probably not.

          • Heck, they would have probably thought that Commodore Perry was the guy in the destroyer that made Tojo sign the surrender documents.

      You seem to think it’s possible everyone who was alive during WWII is dead now.

  5. Now Nanking I can understand, but Pearl Harbor?!

  7. This embarrasses me to be American. I hope everyone seeing this realizes that it isn’t a fair representation of all Americans. I can make no defense on their behalf, though. These are the types of things that are said just often enough by the ignorant, ethnocentric minority in my country to earn everyone the poor reputation that we have around the world. I’m so very sorry that this is what my country has produced.

  9. Wow…its only been 70 years since Pearl Harbor and ww2…and Germany, the UK, France, Hungary, Italy, and all the rest can get along just fine…but a giant stack of web-douches that weren’t even born then can’t forget it…really shows the quality of a human being when tragedy strikes and they scrape for an excuse to feel nothing and spew hate, doesn’t it?

      AMEN BROTHER!!!!!!

    • I think they are trying to fit in & be cool. I noticed most of these heinous remarks are being made by stupid teenagers, whom probably aren’t paying enough attention in class to know wtf Pearl Harbor was about in the first place!!

      • Not just stupid teenagers, some of the pics show adults. Most likely fanatical bigoted xenophobic FOX News-watching teabaggers from the south.

        • Why would you have to say that they are from the south. It’s funny that you used that word to describe them and in the same sentence you were being a bigot yourself. “from the south” implies that you think all people from the south are like that, or that the larger population are like that anyways.
          I get what you were trying to say but choose your words a little more carefully next time.

    • Cynical_About_Humanity | Mar 19, 2011 at 10:01 am |

      TBH, if something similar happened in Germany, there’s probably an equal minority in the UK, who would spew out the same about the blitzes, holocaust, etc, etc…

      • I guess the British government had their payback for ww2… the Bombing of Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne in February 1945 in Germany…

    • ahumanbeing | Mar 16, 2011 at 12:23 pm |

      I don’t think you can blame video games that are violent or violent movies or books. I grew up watching violent movies and playing tekken, etc…and I turned out to be a compassionate human being. The culture around us helps to depict who we become but it does not MAKE us who we are. These teenagers and people that are posting about WWII pay back are just ignorant. If there is one thing I have learned is that you can not let the past explain the future, but you can use the past to reflect upon and grow. Repeating past mistakes doesn’t help anything.

      Clearly there was one person on facebook who wrote it as their status and someone found it funny, and re-posted it…then the next, and so on and so forth. The insensitivity is astounding to me, but I think going for the usual and customary blame of video game violence is absurd.

      The social network has overtaken the world to be honest, and every person, young, old, smart, stupid is on there…there are going to be ignorant people on facebook just like there are ignorant people in the world, they just now have a single location to post their absurdities. shame on them, sincerely, as this was a natural disaster not one country attacking another. As human beings we should feel compassion for the HUMAN BEINGS that lost their homes, families and some their lives.

      “Imagine there’s no countries
      It isn’t hard to do
      Nothing to kill or die for
      And no religion too
      Imagine all the people
      Living life in peace”

  16. wow…

  18. maybe americans should be brainwashed 24/7 from pre-school to college with the stories of hiroshima and nagasaki. that wouldn’t hurt.

  20. As an American (happily living in an another country now that I’m grown up) I’m all too aware of the cultural ignorance / hollywood upbringing many American parents suffer onto their children =[
    You really can’t even blame the poor idiots, their school system is completely underfunded, their television is all powerful, and if TV and video games aren’t enough, there’s movies, drugs, porn, and everything thing else that cripples the wanderlust of youth right at their fingertips. College will bankrupt you, but all kinds of painkillers are covered by insurance, etc. etc.
    It’s hard for me to feel anything but pity.

      I’m sorry, but I’ve spent my entire life immersed in films, television, and video games, I’ve done my share of drugs both hard and soft, I spend several hours a week browsing enjoying pornography, and I’m equally appalled that these people would somehow invoke a WWII military operation against the U.S. when speaking of a horrible natural disaster some seventy years later.

      You can’t blame culture, you can only blame individuals for being fucking ignorant.

      • it’s not the only cause certainly, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, works for a lot of people, but it doesn’t work for a lot of people also. I think it’s more the parents fault than anything, but letting your kids play GTA at the age of 6 is really not the best choice for some kids… not all kids, but some need better.

      • Thank you. Malkere’s ignorance is just as strong and I’m sick of his (and others’) simplistic analysis. He obviously has his own issues.

      • Anonymous | Mar 15, 2011 at 12:55 pm |

        While I agree that it comes down to an individual basis, the distractions and temptations Malkere brings up are a contributing factor to what keeps people of certain upbringings from succeeding. Its good that you and others have enough self-control to become socially aware, however I know too many people who have been lobotomized via America’s hedonistic, for-profit culture.

    As many have already pointed out not all Citizens are this stupid. Many of us are educated and highly aware of not only what happened but also have a firm grasp on the present. The problem being that a good chunk of the populace is a bunch of willfully ignorant morons who can’t see past their televisions to be bothered to read a book. Even if you really wanted to hold a grudge for Pearl Harbor, I’m pretty sure we got them back two fold for both Atom Bombs we dropped on them. Sadly in America, ignorance is bliss this days…

  36. Wow!!! All these people were not even alive 70 years ago!!!! It’s really a shame… Human beings are suffering!!! We truly are the strangest creature in Nature. There is no connection whatsoever between the events of a human war (WWII) and the events of nature. Japan is located on a fault-line where earthquakes are known to occur!! Nature is indifferent to us. Nature does not keep score or favor one “nation” over another. Nature has no “nations”. The Earth has experienced such events throughout its geological history. I really hope that those individuals who choose to comment on such events open a book and reflect on what they will say before they open their mouths or put their fingers on the keyboard. Natural disasters are a reminder that we are not above Nature. We are all a part of Nature and despite economic, political, or social status we are all equal in eyes of existence. Natural disasters should remind us of how life is so precious. It should not remind us of an event like Pearl Harbor. Please pray for those HUMAN BEINGS just like you who are suffering in Japan.

    What annoys me is that everyone is taking this time of tragedy to say how well behaved the Japanese are and how bad the Americans were during Katrina. The US Navy has arrived faster in Japan to assist, with the threat of radiation, then after the Katrina disaster, Kanye was so right! Maybe the US is worried about Japan dumping our bonds? The Japanese have a totally different socio-economic background, they don’t have to loot! As far as the WWII comments, it boggles my mind that Japan never learned their lesson on their need for power, now they are begging Russia for help, SUPER. This is how wars get started, HELLO! What technology in Japan is 40 years old – Nuclear reactors SUPER! They aren’t letting in foreign experts to help for a reason, NIKKEI falling! There is a time for saving face and this is not it, how about some radiation with that humble pie. The Japanese government has failed her people yet again. Haiti is still a mess, shouldn’t we have world disaster response figured out by now?

      Actually, not every “American” burst into tears over Japan’s sudden catastrophe. A lot of “Americans” (as you put it) just think that it sucks. I personally don’t believe that the United States should interfere with the business of the rest of the world unless the rest of the world decides to interfere with our business. When Hurricane Katrina happened, our government denied $854 million dollars from foreign nations offering help. (Thank former President George “Dubya” Bush for that one…idiots..) Anyhow, with that point being made, most European/Asian think that the United States is made up of fat, stupid, greedy people which is unfortunate because those of us with an actual opinion that doesn’t correlate with the rest of the country doesn’t get heard unless it furthers some political agenda. We know we aren’t more than human. We are over ourselves. Our government is not. Anyone else that wants to think that we sit and worry about what the rest of the world thinks of us, you’re completely insane. Our government watches for opportunities to make capital and the people keep an eye on our family and homes; we could honestly care less about the rest of the world because the rest of the world isn’t us and we have our own things to take care of. I see no reason to give any sympathy or condolences to Japan. Their government took precautions for this exact situation, if their reactors meltdown/explode and radiation is released into the atmosphere, that’s when I’ll be worried because that could cause problems for everyone worldwide. Not just the United States of America… Dildo Douchebaggins, stop trying to make it sound like every American bursts into tears whenever we hear about a tragedy on televised media.

The people of Japan are to be commended for their behavior in this latest tragedy. They are in my thoughts.

    I don’t think you can blame video games that are violent or violent movies or books. I grew up watching violent movies and playing tekken, etc…and I turned out to be a compassionate human being. The culture around us helps to depict who we become but it does not MAKE us who we are. These teenagers and people that are posting about WWII pay back are just ignorant. If there is one thing I have learned is that you can not let the past explain the future, but you can use the past to reflect upon and grow. Repeating past mistakes doesn’t help anything.

    Clearly there was one person on facebook who wrote it as their status and someone found it funny, and re-posted it…then the next, and so on and so forth. The insensitivity is astounding to me, but I think going for the usual and customary blame of video game violence is absurd.

    The social network has overtaken the world to be honest, and every person, young, old, smart, stupid is on there…there are going to be ignorant people on facebook just like there are ignorant people in the world, they just now have a single location to post their absurdities. shame on them, sincerely, as this was a natural disaster not one country attacking another. As human beings we should feel compassion for the HUMAN BEINGS that lost their homes, families and some their lives.

    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too

    Hi my name is Richard Curtis and I enjoy agreeing with people.

  153. I feel like, despite that fact that people died, this event was neither good or bad. Good and bad are just ideas that we humans created, and to say it is good or bad isnt really describing what really happened. Sure, people died, but everybody is going to die eventually, and when you live on the coast in an area that’s known for volcanoes and earthquakes, could you honestly say that you couldn’t see this possibly happening? We live in a world of danger, nobody is truly safe from anything, and we have to just get used to this idea.

    Plus, pearl harbor happened because America antagonized japan until the point where they had to defend themselves. America began world war 2 because war was profitable, and got away with making it look like they were totally innocent and justified to go around killing people.

  154. I feel like, despite that fact that people died, this event was neither good or bad. Good and bad are just ideas that we humans created, and to say it is good or bad isnt really describing what really happened. Sure, people died, but everybody is going to die eventually, and when you live on the coast in an area that’s known for volcanoes and earthquakes, could you honestly say that you couldn’t see this possibly happening? We live in a world of danger, nobody is truly safe from anything, and we have to just get used to this idea.

  157. The Japanese should be responding, “Do any of you remember Katrina?”
    Or the Native Americans? Millions died

  158. I saw idiocracy too, I know what you men
    There was actually a discussion on IMDB regarding the rise of idiocy at large

    TBH, if something similar happened in Germany, there’s probably an equal minority in the UK, who would spew out the same about the blitzes, holocaust, etc, etc…

    Could that be the same 90% who don’t own a passport?

    Humankind – whatever happened to that? Humans per se are really starting to bum me out.

  163. I guess the British government had their payback for ww2… the Bombing of Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne in February 1945 in Germany…

  164. Sure it was bad karma for Pearl Harbour *head-shaking*
    And the 9/11 was bad karma for the Americans for Vietnam, Hiroshima, the genocide of the Native Americans, slavery of African-Native Americans…

    Every country had done terrible things… the whole world has… so what… should the whole world be destroyed?! Maybe this happen in 2012 or later in the future…

    • I’m amazed how many Americans talk about karma, a philosophy that primarily comes from India and contradicts the beliefs of Christianity, and then use it to judge others ‘after’ they’ve suffered, which is also a contradiction. I’m only using Christianity as being the most common religion in the US, and in no way suggesting people of Christian faith aren’t generally nice people. But come on, you can’t pick and choose aspects of any faith in order to justify you’re inability to show compassion. Sympathy is free, what’s the harm?

      T.G. this is more of a reply to the topic rather than directly to your comment. I agree with what you’ve said. Though I remember speaking to a Guatemalan shaman once, who said 2012 wouldn’t be an apocalypse, but when we change our relationship and understanding of water. Having seen the events of this year so far, I’d say he could be right.

    Thats just what i was thinking. karma works both ways

  174. Why would you have to say that they are from the south. It’s funny that you used that word to describe them and in the same sentence you were being a bigot yourself. “from the south” implies that you think all people from the south are like that, or that the larger population are like that anyways.
    I get what you were trying to say but choose your words a little more carefully next time.
