In the 1930s Asanuma was a member of several pro-military, far-right uyoku dantai [...] He grew dissatisfied with the direction World War II was taking and withdrew his candidacy from the 1942 election and retired from politics until after Japan's defeat. When he returned to politics, it was as a socialist and left-wing activist.

.... what happened?

The liberal/left-wing/socialist in Japan and other Asian countries is much closer to right wing in US/EU than left wing in US/EU.

Just FYI, they have no plans to bring in groids and terrorists to rape local females for the sake of diversity and virtue signalling. They also have no plans to promote genital mutilation in men for the sake of political correctness.

And that's the moral of the story: violence always works, especially when in appropriate quantities.

They simply changed their names, he didn't save Japan from shit like I said the LDP are already socialsist and the other goons move party or changed their name Shakai Minshuto Murakami, Tomiichi Murayama, New Socialist party, Naoto Kan might actually have a real party Democratic Party of Japan....but I'm not sure after the whole Tsunami Fukushima thing...if this kid did see this man as his enemy, all this kid did was cut the head of a single hydra serpent to have dozens of other serpent heads pop up and take its place

That's Otoya Yamaguchi assassinating Inejiro Asanuma, the head of the Japanese Socialist Party, in 1960.

I was just looking at the kanji for his name:
Yama-Guchi, which literally means Mountain Mouth. 山口
Was this a sign?
