China: Open Letter to Car-Smashing “Patriots”

The territorial conflict between Japan and China has led to a series of protests in major Chinese cities, with angry patriots smashing Japanese vehicles. In response to such action, a Japanese car owner issued an open letter to the patriots. Rachael from Tea Leaf Nation translates the letter and puts it into context.

    I wouldn’t have done that but I am extremely angry that my family members bought a Toyota instead of a Ford. They really exist in a brain fog. I am not excusing them because I think if you aren’t part of the solution, you are part of the problem and I definitely consider ostriches and people so scared they will serve tea to the Japanese and pretend to like cosplay as part of the problem. They blather doesn’t affect me but it does encourage the Japanese and we are all going to end up paying for it. Japan is impossible to neutralize. If God doesn’t blow up Japan from beneath, we are stuck with them.
