When the concept of CRT is explained to them, the hosts laugh at the ridiculousness of it. Yes, in Japan you can laugh publicly now. But how long do they have until their laughs are censored into silence? [EDIT: It turns out, not long.]

Japan to allow hotels to refuse guests shunning infection prevention measures
The Cabinet on Friday adopted a bill to allow hotels and inns to bar guests who don’t have a valid reason for refusing to wear masks or take other anti-infection measures during epidemics.
Under the revised law, hotels and ryokan inns will be allowed to ask guests to wear face masks and check their body temperature if an infectious disease is spreading. They will be able to ask those with a fever or other symptoms to report whether they have seen a doctor and whether they have contracted an infectious disease. Accommodation facilities will be allowed to refuse those who do not follow such requests.
The bill calls for revisions to hotel guest registration. Guests will be asked to share their phone numbers or other contact information with hotels or inns to help identify infection routes
NAGOYA — People took to the streets in 10 cities across Japan on Sept. 4 to protest against moves to amend the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act to make controls on the residency of foreign nationals in the country even stricter.
People marched through the bustling streets of Nagoya’s Sakae downtown area holding banners and signs, such as ones reading “We oppose revising the immigration law.”
The rallies were organized by the Nyukan no Minzoku Sabetsu Jinken Shingai to Tatakau Zenkoku Shimin Rengo (National citizens union to tackle ethnic discrimination and human rights violations by immigration bureaus). Participants also demanded the full disclosure of security camera footage of Wishma Sandamali, a Sri Lankan woman who died at age 33 while she was detained at the Nagoya Regional Immigration Services Bureau in the city of Nagoya in March 2021.
“On the 7th, the Gunma Prefectural Police arrested a 41-year-old Pakistani car repairman in Fujioka City on suspicion of both kidnapping and forced indecency.”
“At around 6:40 p.m. on August 5, the man said to an 18-year-old female university student living in the prefecture, “I want you to teach me Japanese. I have teaching materials at home.” It is suspected that he took her to his house by car and committed obscene acts. The suspect admits to the charges.”
