Idiot Alert: Tom Hanks says US Wanted to Annihilate the Japanese Because They Were “Different”

Posted on March 11, 2010. Filed under: Hollywood Idiots, Terrorism |

Idiot alert! When will these Hollywood idiots get a clue? What a stupid statement. Hey Tom, I believe the reason we fought the Japanese is because they BOMBED us and were trying to take over. I realize that y’all don’t know your history, but since that’s the case, then just keep your pie-holes shut!

Tom Hanks: US Wanted to Annihilate the Japanese Because They Were ”Different”

2010 March 10

Although I am used to Hollywood stars making the most outrageous, anti-American and downright stupid statements, I’ve got to admit that I was taken aback by this post over at Hot Air, nonetheless. Its subject: Tom Hanks said recently that America wanted to ”annihilate the Japanese because they were different.” Yes, seriously:

He is pleased that The Pacific has fulfilled an obligation to our World War II vets. He doesn’t see the series as simply eye-opening history. He hopes it offers Americans a chance to ponder the sacrifices of our current soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. “From the outset, we wanted to make people wonder how our troops can re-enter society in the first place,” Hanks says. “How could they just pick up their lives and get on with the rest of us? Back in World War II, we viewed the Japanese as ‘yellow, slant-eyed dogs’ that believed in different gods. They were out to kill us because our way of living was different. We, in turn, wanted to annihilate them because they were different. Does that sound familiar, by any chance, to what’s going on today?”

As John Nolte explains at Big Hollywood, “no matter how many times you read this passage the context is clear. By ‘different’ Hanks is clearly referring to race, culture and religion, not ideology.” Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey adds:

I thought it was the fact that they bombed us and then fought us relentlessly across the Pacific rather than surrender, but maybe I should tune in for The Truth. So screwy is his read, in fact, that I’m not sure it’s even fair to the Japanese: As I understand it, they hit Pearl Harbor not because “our way of living was different” but because they wanted the oil in the south Pacific and needed to neutralize the American fleet before they made their move. I’m also surprised to learn that whereas the Nazis were unambiguous evil, their strategic ally in the far east — whose imperial army utterly terrorized the civilian population of mainland Asia — was merely “different,” much as jihadists are now. That sure does help me get a handle on that Iraq election held a few days ago.

Hey Tom, perhaps you should stop reading Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States and buy and read a good history book instead. The United States fought Japan, because the Japanese attacked the US and tried to conquer the entire continent of Asia. Not only did they occupy other countries, they proceeded to pillage and ethnically cleanse them. They truly were ruthless. The US, on the other hand, was fighting for freedom and democracy. The Japanese were not being attacked because they were ”different,” but because they were the enemies of humanity.

Please also note that he thinks the West is fighting in the Middle East nowadays, not because Islamists – who adhere to an extreme, intolerant, violent and hateful ideology – attacked us and want to destroy our way of living, but because we’re all racists. I’m sure that makes perfect sense if you’re a cocaine sniffing megalomaniac, but to everyone else, not so much.

I don’t mind Hollywood minions having an opinion about politics, but it would be nice if they’d keep them to themselves. That way I can at least enjoy watching the latest movie without thinking about the lead actor’s stupidity.

Although I knew Hanks is a Hollywood Lib, I thought he was at least a little better than average. Now he opens his stupid mouth and makes a statement so inane, so wrong, so absurd he proves he really is a babbling idiot and is yet more anecdotal evidence that Liberalism is a form of mental illness.

As a 75 year old who grew up during WWII,
what Hanks said is not that far off from being true. And
IF you get off your lazy tail and do some research into the type of posters put put during the war, you MAY learn the truth of how the Japs were protrayed.

(And anyone who actually did knows what they did also knows how they were protrayed is not so far off.)

Neil C. Reinhardt

An AIRBORNE Vet who won awards for my efforts as a child during WWII.

My response is “So what”, Neil? You know of course that the Japanese told their people we were all hairy apes, barbarians that would rape their women and eat their children? You know that the Japs considered anyone non-Japanese as inferior sub-humans? Remember the rape of Nanking, the Bataan Death March, the Palawan massacre, the Hell Ships, the destruction of Manila (100,000 civilians murdered). I’m GLAD we nuked Japan, by doing so we saved countless allied lives AND millions of Japanese lives.

Wow, you got awards for collecting scrap metal and tires, hooray for you. Don’t break your arm patting yourself on the back.






Liar. You say you are 75 and were Airborne in WW II? Bald faced liar. And you’re a jerk and a moron, fancy that. I believe YOU are the one with the plexiglass belly button, faker.

I have read the comments from top to bottom. They sort of deteriorated at the end but let me throw in a few comments. If you are a 75 year old airborne vet you would have been 15 years old sixty years ago. Young for a WWII vet. I am a Viet Nam Vet and am 68, so, I don’t believe you served in the big war. Also you mention your source of knowledge of how the Japanese were portrayed as WWII posters. The purpose of which was morale and recruiting, not historically accurate descriptions of the Japanese.
I don’t know what Tom Hank’s politics are but he has brought WWII to life in his movies. If Michael Moore had made those motion pictures they would have been very different. Read a good history book before you make more comments. What you have written here just makes you look stupid.

unrestrained or excessive self-indulgence.
That is the dictionary’s term for decadence.
It also fits the Hollyweird crowd very well.
They are decadent in the extreme.

They should take that blabbering dope headed dim-bulb to PEABODY and SHERMAN put him in the WAYBAC MACHINE and set it for DEC 7 1941 and place him on the deck of the ARIZONA and see what he thinks(hanks cant realy think becuase of too much dope and booze)

You fucking uneducated turd. I know Tom personally, and he’s a straight up guy. You are a stupid fuck!

Get a life loser.

Eat shit and bark at the moon, fuckturd (Rob), you name dropping cocksucker. The Japs NEEDED to be whipped, or maybe you like little oriental boys in your ass, cumbreath?
