But japan HAS made it illegal to speak native languages, and I quote, “The Meiji government in Tokyo declared the Ainu language illegal, forced them to adopt Japanese names, redistributed their land to mainland settlers and forced them to labour in the fishing industry.” (Source) Mira may be off but she’s not wrong, I don’t think she’s even that off. It’s not just “making a standard language to communicate” when you’re going into Ainu communities and forcing them all to learn Japanese, forcing them to integrate, forcing them into slave labor when it was their land to begin with. You can argue all you want, but the goverment of japan has attempted ethnic cleansing of native languages and people and are only now starting to kinda acknowledging it slowly, although by now Ainu language and traditions are boardering very close on extinction. Which was the main goal. Which was trying to erase an native population from existence and integrate them into Japanese society as if they were never there in the first place, ie, ethnic cleansing. It’s not as violent as genocide but it’s again, ethnic cleansing by erasure. By ignoring independent languages, peoples and traditions they’re trying to keep up the illusion that they’re one homogeneous people and that these people, they effectively don’t exist. Mira said “the Japanese government really likes to ethnic cleansing stuff” I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say she’s not wrong, historically it’s true, by keeping silent it’s continuing to let these cultures and traditions die, and they have multiple times made speaking your native language illegal ( it happened in Korea too, during Japanese occupation). She’s said some incredibly dumb stuff recently but she gets something right once and everyone tries to make an argument that shes said something crazy offensive lmfao
Perhaps Mira is using the word too liberally here but japan really is responsible for attempted ethnic cleansing more than once. It’s a huge blight on Japanese history and one they largely ignore and deny. The forced assimilation of the Native Ainu could be considered an ethnic cleansing; their land was taken, they were denied indigenous status, they were forced to abandon their traditional practices, take Japanese names and basically become Japanese. Until 1997, it was official policy that there were no ethnic minorities in Japan. It’s ethnic cleansing by erasure. Japanese invasions of China and Korea were DEFINITELY attempts at ethnic cleansing, complete with mass murder. We’ve been over this before, Japan is not innocent and is hiding many, many skeletons in their closet they refuse to own up to even today.
Apologies if I snapped back, intent is always hard to tell through text and I honestly didn’t mean it to be serious. I can see the concern though, because there are plenty of people who mean it, especially after stuff like this. I’m not sure how much Japan can do with the influx of tourists that will be coming over with the Olympics, but I really hope people can get their heads on straight. There needs to be better education on how to go abroad because it’s going to be nuts, I’m sure
It was entirely a joke and you missed the point. Foreigners are already judged as a whole, there’s no going around it. There’s been an embarrassing number of incidents over the years that just seem to escalate (re: Logan Paul), plus the recent declaration from Mira yet again that she is Japanese. She hasn’t weeded herself out yet. I know weebs and japanophiles that are still as bad, if not worse, than they were decade ago that seem to be doing just fine and are continually enabled by their friends and social media. And of course, tourists that go over and act like jackasses. They reflect poorly on everyone and the legacy they leave behind last. That doesn’t go away. People remember and they continue to hold those sentiments against foreigners no matter how innocent they may be. When I went abroad we were instructed not to do anything that would undo the progress of our program in that country, because Americans, particularly college age students, have a bad reputation. We do, and continue to have a very poor reputation abroad. We don’t need anymore international incidents. We don’t need more Logan Pauls tromping through Aokigahara and filming suicide victims, or running through a fish market jumping on work vehicles. And there were already problems with tourists in the fish market prior to him even. There are plenty of good people abroad, in Japan and elsewhere, who work hard to undo the stereotypes, who make friends and try to be part of the community. It’s not an easy process, and it’s never going to change everyone’s minds, but they’re there. I was a part of a program like that. I don’t honestly believe in kicking out everyone just because of a handful of people and I believe there are plenty of good people abroad right now making a difference. But there is a real, very large problem with foreigners ruining it for everyone because they feel like going abroad entitles them to act however they want. It looks bad for everyone else and it hurts the good people too.
I say with Mira, every weeb with a Japan fetish that thinks they’re Japanese, and the latest stuff with Logan Paul, Japan should once again expel all the foreigners in the country and close the borders. It’s best for everyone.
Long time, no post. I just figured it would be worth to share (if it hasn’t been already) Logan Paul’s dad has been on Kotaku angerly replying to people, which is, in a word, incredible. https://twitter.com/weeaboo/status/949031534895476738
Ah, so she finally found a niche of people who are willing to give her the attention she desprately craves. Japan just wasn't doing it. Now that she can sucessfully convert to a a religion that has presumably low numbers of western converts, she doesn't have to deal with all the "hate" from people who don't believe her. They're just "haters" and islamphobes, like everyone who called her out on being jApANESE were racists. It's easier for her to convert to Islam and get less questions than to pretend she is ethnically Japanese. People will support her either way but this is hilarious in how painful it is.
there are some very small changes between Halal and Kosher, the biggest of which is who is doing the slaughtering. Any adult Muslim proclaiming Allah's name can slaughter an animal for it to be Halal, but a rabbi must be the one slaughtering the animal to be kosher. There's also some things like camels are halal but not kosher, but they are pretty similar dietary restrictions. I try to avoid any pork or shellfish products even though I'm not Jewish or Muslim so I look for halal or kosher when I'm shopping tbh
Miranda is claiming she's not reading this website because it's bashing her religion when a lot of people have come to the defense of Islam, and there have been a couple people speak up who are Muslim. I doubt she's actually stopped reading PULL because she's said in the past she didn't read "hate forums" but eventually gave up on that lie. And ha! "I'd never be a Christian because I'm a woman of science, and the Quran supports a lot of scientific miracles." I'm not sure what the Quran says about science but a miracle isn't something you can explain via science, that's the point. The point of religion is believing in something bigger than you, something you cannot see. I come from a Christian household, and she's so insulting, as if Christians can't and won't believe in science. Muslim countries do have a very long and progressive history of science, but Christian history is hardly devoid of scientific progress (although i would hazard to say not as glowing, but I could be wrong). Why would she even need to say that other than to be a dick? Her bid for religion is so exceedingly fake and condescending. She's whitesplaining islam to people who have lived it their entire lives, Rody was right to ditch her sorry ass.
"They do it in Saudi Arabia so it's not haram" is the height of stupidity for dear Miranda. When lifelong Muslims come to you and tell you something, it would probably be beneficial to listen to them. She's not even polite. She could have come up with a logical argument about why she's doing it, but she didn't. Really goes to show she doesn't care about other Muslims or their opinions. This is all about her and how she likes to appropriate cultures because they look cool, not that she actually truly wanted to convert because she had a change of heart.
I'm not Canadian, never been to Canada, but from all my research and having found authentic Canadian poutine here in the US- it's not. According to Wikipedia, light gravies are used made from turkey, veal or chicken. Some places offer vegetarian friendly options, too. Heavy gravies made from beef or pork are not typically used. Not all gravy is made from pork, I don't know why it irritates me so much she doesn't seem to know this, or, more likely, she's pulling out the "I'm Muslim and halal now, look at me" which seems to be her new mode. Case and point- they asked if she missed it, not if it was halal dummy.
In classic Miranda fashion, she's a Muslim for a week and automatically knows much more than any other Muslim ever. Rodi presumably has been a Muslim his entire life, but she's enlightened now and sees that he's a bad Muslim, but she's good, religious woman now. Miranda is living proof that you can become an expert in anything you choose just by saying you are!
Godddd this is such good stuff. I hope Rodi releases the full thing and exposes her in all her wickedness. I don't believe for a second she's actually accepted religion after insisting time and time again she's an atheist that just really likes Islam. She's really stopping drinking for good? That's a good joke. Miranda acts like she let him be because he blocked her, but Simon was bugging him, probably at Mira's behest. And not only that, all her tweets and her apology video. Those were made to get his attention. And he would've completely forgiven her and moved on if she could have just acted like an adult! Mirandas inability to be a good person has put a whole lot of ammo in the wrong persons hands.
She's up to $158, which I wonder how? And then realize it's because of the one guy who's obsessed with her making up about 75% of that number. She's been milking this for days and has a whooping total of five patreons out of the thousands of followers she has across all her social media accounts. Great job, you're really as famous and admired as you claim I can totally tell.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but they reformatted their patreon I think, starting at $10. There's a tier for vlogs and then a higher tier for even more vlogs? Because you really have to pad it out with more useless shit! And now you get THREE whole presents from wherever they go if you shell out $120! Now I have to back them and see the magic first hand.
