‘Right-wing populists’ malignant tumor of Japanese society

(People's Daily Online)

09:57, October 03, 2012

Right-wing forces are malignant tumors of Japanese society. Europeans and Americans normally call social and political forces that advocate xenophobia and fascism “far-right forces,” and Japanese call them “right-wing forces” by tradition. Right-wing Japanese forces advocate nationalism and Japanese supremacy, and worship the Mikado.

Overall, traditional right-wingers have lost their mainstream status in Japanese political circles. They have either retired or been marginalized. The current Japanese right-wingers that make efforts to damage China-Japan relations and hype the “China threat” theory are mostly different from traditional right-wingers in thinking, but have caused almost the same damage to China-Japan relations. The new generation of Japanese right-wingers is more of “right-wing populists.”

“Right-wing populists” have become a mainstream political force in Japan because of the following reasons.
