In case you didn’t know, the women’s U.S. soccer team played Japan in the World Cup finals today.
On Facebook, one of my fellow, high school graduates and soccer player friends updated with: “This one’s for Pearl Harbor!”
To which some other moron who graduated from my high school said (and I quote): “hell yeah, I ain’t forgot that shit either.”
My response was, well … fuck it, you can read above. I grabbed a screen capture.
I explained we got our revenge.
Apparently what I should have said was, “For fuck’s sake, MOVE ON and try to understand history while you’re at it.”
And you can read what idiotic response came next.
We retaliated for Pearl Harbor with, not one, but two fucking atomic bombs (thanks, Science!). And while the Japanese wreaked havoc on our military base and slaughtered over 2,000 Americans, we killed over 200,000 innocent Japanese citizens and who knows how many Japanese military during WWII.
We painted ourselves in the corner as douchebags with the second atomic bomb. We premeditated so much carnage that we deserve international disgust after the second bomb drop.
So no, other Jeremy from my high school, this one wasn’t for Pearl Harbor. It was for soccer. It was for a fucking game. And a game isn’t going to settle a death match … although I really wish they did. Less loss of life and a lot more fun to watch.
And to top the whole thing off, the U.S. lost.
So if this one was for Pearl Harbor, we showed no one anything except for the embarrassment of people like Jeremy who lay claim that a soccer game will finally lay to rest those who died Pearl Harbor attacks.
I hate ignorance … and this is pretty much the bottom of the barrel in award-winning, embarrassing idiocy.
