KCNA Rebukes Hysteric Fit of Osaka Gov. Hashimoto

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, March 23 (KCNA) -- There appeared one more psychopath in the Japanese political circle. He is Governor of Osaka Prefecture Hashimoto. His way of thinking and manner of speaking cannot be regarded as normal.

This guy malignantly spoke ill of the DPRK and its system, calling them "illegal state" and "Nazis" and likened the Koreans including the Korean residents in Japan to the German nation in the past in a bid to openly justify Japan's discrimination against the Korean schools in Japan.

This was nothing but a hysteric fit of the guy steeped in bitterness toward the DPRK to the marrow of his bones. It is the 21st century.

Gone are the days when there prevailed law and system justifying national discrimination. It is anachronistic and reactionary sophism to assert discrimination against other nation on our planet.

Hashimoto, however, made such remarks inciting racial discrimination in broad daylight, stunning the people. He might have lost his sense.

His assertions, in a nutshell, mean that national discrimination against the Koreans is unavoidable as they are just the same as the German nation at the time of the Nazis rule.

Is it conceivable that the above-said remarks were made by the politician representing one prefecture of Japan?

Whoever claims to be a politician should have common sense and be logical in any statement.

What Hashimoto said, however, is full of contradictions. He is an imbecile, a political charlatan and a wicked guy without an equal in the world as he is free to make reckless remarks without any elementary common sense of history and logic.

Much upset by ceaseless protest and denunciation of his outbursts by the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon), the Koreans in Japan and Japanese public, he visited the Korean school in Osaka on March 12 and expressed apology that "he was very sorry for creating furor by making inadvertent remarks."

What is intolerable is that no sooner had he left the school than let loose a spate of such sophism as admonishing the school to cut off its relations with Chongryon and provide its students with information about "Takeshima", "Sea of Japan" and "abduction", etc. to suit the specific conditions of Japan.

This is an unpardonable human rights abuse and fascist tyranny aimed to deprive Korean children of their national spirit, prevent them from having any relations with the homeland through Chongryon and make them "Imperial subjects" of modern type meekly executing Japan's policy of reinvasion.

If there be any Nazis country on the earth today, it is only Japan where wicked, crafty and shameless ultranationalists openly incite discrimination and domination over other nation.

No wonder, the Social-Democratic Party, the People's New Party and other political parties as well as people from all walks of life in Japan are becoming increasingly assertive demanding a stop to the discrimination against the Korean schools.

Hashimoto will never be able to escape a stern punishment by history if he persists in his criminal acts of hurting the inviolable dignity of the DPRK and antagonizing Chongryon and the Koreans in Japan in defiance of the domestic and foreign public opinion.
