Washington woke up this morning to find page 9 of their Washington Post featuring a full-page ($100,000) ad celebrating the American military presence in Japan. This advocacy ad is below.
It is funded by the Happiness Realization Party, a cult-like Rightist party that believes that China and North Korea want to invade Japan and the earth was visited by aliens in the 1980s. Makes sense to us over here at APP. Our Man in Abiko has a good rundown on this party with links to other sources. We suspect that the other organizations listed as partner organizations are simply auxiliary groups of the HRP. We are checking.
