The city of Kawasaki on Monday submitted to its assembly an ordinance bill to introduce criminal penalties for hate speech, the first in Japan.
Japan enacted in 2016 a law designed to deter hate speech, but it lacks provisions to ban or punish the use of discriminatory language, leading critics to call for tougher steps to eradicate discrimination against ethnic minorities.
“In order to promote the creation of a city in which no citizens are subjected to unjust discrimination, we will deepen discussions and work toward enacting the ordinance,” Kawasaki Mayor Norihiko Fukuda said.
The Kawasaki bill, expected to pass the assembly in mid-December and take effect on July 1, bans discriminatory remarks against a person from a particular country or region in public spaces such as on the street or in a park.
It calls for issuing advisories and orders to violators and disclosing the names and addresses of repeated violators while making them punishable with a fine of up to 500,000 yen ($4,600).
The Pope is currently in Japan visiting Japanese Catholics. In a speech at the main cathedral of Tokyo, he expressed concern that Japan has not done enough to help refugees in the recent years. He was shocked to learn that only 42 people received refugee status in Japan, and said this must change.
“I ask you to spread the arms of friendship and welcome those who come, often after great suffering, to seek refuge in your country” Pope Francis made an appeal to Japan at the meeting with young people in the Cathedral of Saint Mary in Tokyo. The Pope explained Japan’s framework of rules is “so restrictive that the number of those who have obtained refugee status in 2018 is limited to 42 people.”
Too much competition and frenzy leads to loneliness, “the greatest poverty,” the Pontiff said in a meeting with young people in Tokyo. “There are young people who do not laugh, do not play, do not know a sense of wonder and surprise. As zombies – Pope Francis used this word -, their hearts stopped beating because of their inability to celebrate life with others. And now we need to make room for God in a frenetic society focused on being only competitive and productive.”
Fading away are the gushingly-cute schoolgirl idols of yesteryear that appealed to your sense of innocence. Instead, globalized western sexuality of in-your-face aggressive feminist ass shaking is taking its place.
Do you hate girls with dark hair and dark hair? “Standing at the heel” singer “Yayo Daimon” and the Repezen Earth! A no-bra song based on the theme of “Repezen Women” released by the strongest and unpredictable female rapper “Akko Gorilla”.
Girls don’t care about their appearance or the size of their breasts, and they can shine vividly if they spend their days in a free lifestyle with confidence in themselves rather than living strictly! A positive message song. 🙋♀✨🙆♀✨️💁♀️
With the chaotic truck flipping, injury-resulting fights, and huge property damages from last Halloween, Tokyo-based and Marxist-hellhole Temple University Japan Campus just broadcasted this message to their foreign student body:
Dear TUJ Students,
Halloween weekend is coming up and the university wanted to send a note about this time of year in Tokyo.
There are numerous Halloween parties and events in the city. In previous years, some TUJ students have gotten into trouble with the police and were arrested due to careless behavior while intoxicated at Halloween parties in the Shibuya area. Not only did these actions result in criminal records here in Japan, but also affected the rest of their semester.
For our visa-sponsored students in particular, this is a very real threat in their ability to maintain their student status here in Japan. Students on study abroad programs involved in such incidents also had their parents and home institutions contacted.
**Please note that from this year, Shibuya City has banned drinking on the streets. The map of the area where the restrictions are in place can be found here. This goes into effect TOMORROW NIGHT, and will remain throughout the weekend, and some days next week.
TUJ would like to ask all students to stay safe, to go out in groups and stay together, and to act responsibly to avoid getting into trouble. The university would like to remind you that there is little support that TUJ can provide if you are arrested.
Thank you for your understanding and be safe.
This message is a legal move on the institution’s part to reduce their liability to the impending problems, and an undeniable admission of knowing that the degenerates they granted visas into the country will inevitably cause chaos.
