Yes, I know that was blunt, but really, that's what it boils down to. Today, among all of the coverage of the devastation in Japan, all the stories of people having to flee their homes or identify their dead children, there were also reports of how hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans had taken to the web to spout bullshit about how the quake and tsunami were karmic justice for the attacks on Pearl Harbor.
Yeah, I know. Assholes.
I know we all have free speech. I know the Internet makes it very easy to access it. I know that ignoring these trolls is the best justice. Oh, and I also know that if karma had anything to actually do with this tragedy that they better watch their backs -- and so should other "Americans" think God only has our backs.
What about Hiroshima? Or Cambodia? Or Vietnam? How about Bosnia? Or Iraq? We really better hope Karma doesn't know about Guantanamo Bay, or the black site prisons around the world. That would bring some serious shit down on our heads.
Well, except along the gulf coast. Karma owes those people.
I mean, except for those who really think this was all because of Pearl Harbor.
