Justin Bieber is a celebrity and he is a young man with a modern education. That statement is enough to provide evidence that Mr.Bieber is an ignorant individual who believes “the past” refers to what he did last week. After spending the past five years teaching at St. Louis Community college sites it is clear to me that if ignorance of history was a virtue, 90% of
modern youth would wind up as saints in Heaven. Someone told Mr.Bieber that the Yasuksini Shrine in Tokyo was a place in which love of humanity was central to its existence. He visited the shrine and then posted pictures with the caption, “thank you for your blessing” on his Instagram page. I assume someone with intelligence gasped in shock at the pictures and explained to the ignorant young man this shrine was dedicated to Japanese soldiers who had murdered and raped during World War II. Justin did remove the pictures..
I doubt if Justin has any idea who fought in World War II, let alone what happened. The Japanese army murdered over five million Chinese people. In the city of Nanking they raped at least 80,000 women and forced thousands more in China and Korea to serve as “comfort women.” Gee, Justin, have you ever considered reading a book???
Anyway, Justin is no more insensitive than Japanese Prime Minister Abe who is certainly no “Honest Abe” when it comes to defending Japanese murder and rape.
