Shintaro Ishihara passed away on February 1 at the age of 89. His presence was so significant that even after his death, a blame game broke out.

Shintaro Ishihara, the Akutagawa Prize-winning author and former governor of Tokyo, passed away at his home on the morning of February 1 at the age of 89. He was 89 years old. While he was highly popular among some people as a hawkish debater, his outspoken comments often caused controversy.

In the midst of this controversy, some tweets criticizing the deceased have become controversial on the Internet.

Yuko Otsubaki, deputy leader of the Social Democratic Party of Japan, tweeted at 2:30 p.m. on the 1st, just after the news of his death.

I hope that the memorial programs that will be broadcast in the future do not end with praise, but also do not pretend that the racism, sexism, discrimination against the disabled, etc. that he spread are not there.

He tweeted. Businessman Takafumi Horie responded to this by saying

I think people should at least mourn honestly when someone who has different political views dies, but it seems to be normal for leftists to hunt them down.

But it seems that leftists usually hunt them down. Similarly, Jiro Yamaguchi, a professor of law at Hosei University, wrote on Twitter on the day of Ishihara’s death

When I heard the news of Shintaro Ishihara’s death, I felt angry again that he insulted and hurt many people including women and foreigners. His great crime is that he reassured the racists that it is okay to openly spread hate speech in Japan.

This is his great crime. Akihisa Nagashima, a member of the House of Representatives of the Liberal Democratic Party, then wrote on Twitter

This is the worst comment ever made on a deceased person. The comment by Kazuo Shii, chairman of the Japan Communist Party, who expressed his condolences and said, ‘Of course there were differences between our positions, but I would like to refrain from saying anything today,’ is far more elegant.

He criticized him.

As a politician, it is only natural that there will be a variety of commentary at the time of his death, but in Japan, when a celebrity passes away, the first thing the media likes to do is to praise his achievements. A TV station insider said

“It’s not a fixed rule, but we do it based on the value that ‘flogging a dead person is not a good idea.

He said.

On the other hand, foreign countries, especially China, which has been “attacked” by Ishihara, described the deceased as a “right-wing Japanese politician” in their media. South Korea’s Yonhap News called him “Japan’s far-right delusion maker” and the Seoul News dismissed him as “Japan’s far-right politician who ‘deluded’ about comfort women.

It seems that the two extreme halos are due to the fact that he was a man with a strong personality, but at a time like this, I was reminded of the words of the TV personality Hiroyuki Ariyoshi.

On January 24, last year, Ariyoshi spoke on the JFN radio program SUNDAY NIGHT DREAMER” on January 24 last year, he referred to Mr. Ken Shimura (70 years old) who became a victim of the new Covid-19. He talked about the tendency to “deify” Mr. Shimura in some circles because he never belittled others or laughed violently.

There are people who say, ‘Mr. Shimura did not hurt people with his laugh. No, no, no! Shimura-san did that kind of laughter, and he also did very erotic material!

No, no! Ariyoshi got heated up.

What? Shimura-san did laughs that didn’t hurt people? Don’t be silly, you idiot!

And then

We love you because you hurt people, make fun of people, do sexually explicit material, and call people poop and dicks. Don’t be silly! You idiot!

He appealed aloud.

Politicians and TV personalities may have different meanings, but people have a front and a back, merits and demerits. It’s up to us to decide whether we like them or not. In the end, it may come down to that decision.
