I'm back from the Left-wing re-education camp
It's hard to believe I've been back for a week- I've just been crashing in my apartment . . .
It was worth it going up north to teach at the Japanese language immersion camp for 6 weeks, but I was bitterly disappointed that the language "villages" of my youth have been co-opted by submoronic Left-wing politics- with politically correct "simulations" conducted in the English language nonetheless.
I just about lost it when they they tried to get me to play the role of a guard at a Japanese-American internment camp during the 40s-
1)If we're shooting for a beyond-pathetic "simulation", in a Japanese language immersion camp, of what it might have been like to be a Japanese-American interned in the 40s, doesn't that then imply that the internees were not real Americans after all?
2)If the US had interned as many German-Americans during World War II, would that then let Nazi Germany off the hook?
3)I did wonder if the German "Waldsee" village was teaching WWII from the friggin' Nazi point of view . . . and why we never have peace ceremonies to commemorate the fire-bombing of Dresden or the Rape of Berlin . . .
rant, rant, rant . . .
