Fake Uyoku - the obscure cult (2)
What's an "fake Uyoku" (fake rightists)? If you already read the previous post, it's a dull question. They typically stroll in a scaringly decorated car like the pic above, and make loud army songs in the street. Although most of normal Japanese wonder what the heck they are, mass media won't take up their real face. If you have a Japanese friend and may want to dare to ask him/her about them. But I'm pretty sure your friend just don't know much about it in spite of being intimidated.
My previous post was a venture; I condemned that a number of Korean(zainichi) have been slipping into those organizations. Recently, I was very alerted about incidents around Uyoku: one of the suspicious ones was taken place April 23rd 2004, making me feel that Koreans are involved with an evil intention. But my investigation ended up with vague findings. This article is about how I had investigated this incident and what I got as the conclusion. Let me sort the backgrounds around it chronologically.
Around that time, there was a cronical and controversial argument flaring-up between Japan and China about their territory issues, Senkaku islands and Okinoshima island.
THAT incident happend in the middle of those arguments. An fake Uyoku car slamed into Chinese Consulate in Osaka, ending up with burning and destroying their main gate. Needless to say, Beijing issued a strict warning to Tokyo to keep an eye on those radical groups. Penalized for this, Japan consequently made the negotiation unfavorable.
The criminal, Nobuyuki Nakagama (34),was immediately arrested, and newspapers the next day reported this rather briefly. His motivation was to claim that Senkaku islands should belong to Japan. He was from an Uyoku party, Nihonkoumintou (日本皇民党), which means "Japan Emperor's Citizen Party".
The story develops rapidly. A Korean zainichi, Ko Chong-Su (高 鐘守) (40), was arrested two days later for supervising this din. Many hardly noticed his arrest; newspapers barely reported it with a very small headline. Bingo! Korean again.
But I really don't know why Koreans are frequently involved. Some might say that way they can undermine Japan's reputation and scare ordinary people away from being rightish. I might agree to that.
After this incident, public trials over 11 times are disclosed online on the criminal, Nakagama. Reading this, I sensed that he is a pure Japanese who is just radical. More investigation revealed that this fake Uyoku group, Nihonkoumintou (日本皇民党), regards Chinese communists as an fatal enemy. Their activity has been based just for aggressive act against Chinese communist. The reason for their hostility is that their will is to unite all Asia, which won't be realized with communists, I guess. Since those Uyoku parties typically wish they live within Great East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere, they are assumed to be inevitably generous to Korean new comers. There's a rumor that some fake Uyoku parties have been already taken over by Koreans because of the generousity of Uyoku to Koreans. But for the case of this party, Nihonkoumintou (日本皇民党), it's not realistic to determine this party is anti-Japanese manipulated by Korean.
Sorry that I have to conclude this story like that. It's like there's no concrete conclusion! The Uyoku issue is so complicated that it's very hard to get an access to their core part. Anyway, I don't support Nakagawa's reckless act although it may reflect his "noble" belief against communists. Hate to say it, but it ooks like Chinese communist has a right to blame Japan by all means this time.
Mass media exist to expose those mysteries to people per se, but they keep silent probably because fake Uyoku live on intimidation. They don't want to run a risk of having intimidation by them.
