Feckless f*cks and the Fukushima 50


I’ve been wanting to post about the tragedy that hit Japan on March 11th beginning with the 9.0 earthquake that struck in the North that sent ripples through the rest of the island and the devastating tsunami that claimed so many lives. I’m angry, more like an uncontrollable rage that I can’t bottle in anymore.

Those feckless f*cks (hereinafter referred to as fecks) such as the overseas news networks who, like a pack of jackals frothing at the mouth, instead of reporting the true misfortune of events in Sendai and the surrounding areas decided that it wasn’t as newsworthy as “TOTAL NUCLEAR MELTDOWN!” You irresponsible twats who would rather keep people in fear to boost your viewership ratings and to sell papers! It was almost as if you wanted things to get worse. One report even went as far as to say that Japan could be wiped off the face of the earth. FOX “news” even used the above picture showing a nuclear plant being housed in a Japanese nightclub (Shibuya Eggman). Eggman even posted on their website “Shibuya Eggman has no nuclear plant, Our electricity’s powered only by music.”

I learned more from this Japanese video made to explain to kids what was happening than the speculative drivel you tout as information.

And you, fat cat foreign bankers who without a moment’s hesitation shelled out thousands of dollars (up to $265,000 one way) to charter private jets out of Tokyo forgetting about how good this country has been to your pockets. I don’t even need to break down how much aid that money could bring. These same bankers who not long ago sent the economy into a downward spiral only to be bailed out later by their governments. The Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) had to ban brokers from selling stocks for their own arbitrage trading. You fecks.

And you douches who use this opportunity to still harp on about “Japan killed my grandfather so this is karma”, you immature fecks. You forget about Hiroshima and Nagasaki, retaliation that no other country I can think of could pick itself up and carry on. You selfish brats who cry “Where is the money my government wants to use to aid Japan coming from? Not my taxes?” You would be the first begging for aid from other countries if the tables were turned, and trust me Japan would be right there to help.

All in all, I count myself and many others here in Tokyo as very lucky. We have nothing to complain about. Yeah, supermarkets and conbenis were literally empty as people panicked and stocked up like crazy and don’t get me started on this drama queen who could just do us all a favour and be deported. So what if there’s no milk, those cows up north could use a break too. I made a joke there, but not to take away from what’s really going on in Sendai, Fukushima, Iwate, Ibaraki, those are the people who really need us. The Fukushima 50 who are working non stop to keep us all safe, let us not forget them and their families. My fear/sadness/anger has now rightly returned to reflection and JanKenBPM salutes you brave souls!

If you’re not one of those fecks and want to know how you can help Japan, don’t just click “like” on one of those Facebook groups or say “Oh, let us pray for Japan”, do something:

If in Japan:

  • Groupon, they will give two times the money you send, maximum 10.000 ¥ each time
  • Here you can find various options

If you are outside Japan:

    So proud of you for posting this! I can’t agree with you more! I’ve been observing people, of whom I thought very high, leaving this country as if it’s the end of times. One guy even told me that he’s doing the right thing because ‘if there are less foreigners to feed it will be better for the people up north’. Well, his leaving this country didn’t seem like he’s doing it for the sake of the people up north. Anyways, your post makes me relieved thinking that somewhere out there there’s someone who still has head on his/her shoulders. I’m in Tokyo and won’t be leaving.

    • Thanks for your comment Aeho! If your friend left because he has kids then I can’t fault him. If on the other hand say, he is in a managerial position, has a lot of responsibility and left his employees behind then… maybe he’s a feck.
      Hey, keep safe out there and thanks for reading 🙂
