pity he looks so creepy as his anti mask , non-brainwashed stance might just resonate with the youth
Did you not read the article ? He's not anti-mask at all. He's fighting Masayuki Hiratsuka, who is an "anti-mask, corona is just the flu" moron.

“It’s been a long time coming, but the dark days are over,” the memorandum says. “Just like race and gender, the ability to speak English has nothing to do with your ability to do your job.”
What kind of shiftless thinking is that?!? I would much rather work with/hire someone who has actually made the effort of learning English than lazy people who rely on AI for their work.

There is of course a link between alcohol and violence in general (domestic or otherwise), but again, it's far from being the main cause of domestic violence, and most of all, thinking that people who smoke weed don't beat their spouses is simply inane.

Outlaw alcohol and legalize weed--that'll lower the number.
If you think the main cause of domestic violence is "alcohol", you really to read a book or two.

Your hypocrisy is outing her “black-face” but neglecting to also point out ‘Downtown’ manzai’s prominent display of “black-face’,
I'm not outing her blackface, but simply giving my opinion on her body of work, which is profoundly unfunny.
*televised during one of ‘the most anticipated and watched annual owaria events for Japanese children each year’. *
Gaki no Tsukai is certainly not "for Japanese children", that statement is blatantly false.
Hardly, 2 minutes.
It was a two to three minutes sequence. He came out dressed as Axel Foley, lamented that his costume was different than his partners, tried to get on the bus, then got changed and the show moved on. Why would you say that sequence was something it isn't? Did you actually see it or are you "maliciously" exaggerating?
Hers, if it happened, would be eqaully egregious. Not angry or indignant or signaling. Started this thread offering support. Just wary that there other comments like your comments since @5:09p are maliciously wishing her failure.
I am entitled to my opinion. My opinion is that Naomi Watanabe is basic and corny. If you're a fan, that's good for you, but don't attack other people for not liking what you like with your bold italics.
Also, I do not "wish her failure". I simple wonder how she could succeed given her lack of talent. I don't harbour any ill-will towards her, on the contrary, I find it extremely sad that she's building her career around rolling towards an early death from diabetes.

Hitoshi Matsumoto, who laughs when his partner, Demae-can (or, whatever, unfunny no-talent he’s known as,)
He's actually know as "Masatoshi Hamada", one of the most popular, famous and respected living comedian in Japan with a career of close to 40 years (and some very bad commercial choices his own partner very rightfully makes fun of).
dresses up to ridicule Eddie Murphy.
The only person they were ridiculing in that sequence was Hamada himself, but you obviously rather purposefully completely missed that in order to make some sort of indignant point.
Don’t you think it’s hypocritical to use their “black-face’ to call out her ‘black-face’? She never applied black-face to pay tribute to Beyoncé .
And I never said she did. You seem very angry for some reason, but please direct your virtue signalling anger elsewhere.
I never said dressing up Hamada as Eddie Murphy for a 2 minutes sequence was a good idea. But playing an african ryokan owner speaking in broken japanese is much, much egregious.

a comic legend in his own mind.
A comic legend in actual fact, as his influence on japanese culture in general is absolutely huge. I don't know about his ego since I don't personally know him, but anybody deserves to have a big ego, it's definitely him.

I always found all the segments on TV showing her gobbling up unhealthy amounts of food to be like watching someone commiting a very slow suicide: sad and disturbing. The only other vivd memory I have of her is when she played an african ryokan owner in blackface in a TV sketch. It was exactly as "funny" as it sounds.
I fail to see how she would be successful in the US seeing that her only talent is being able to dance while being obese. The equally unfunny Yuji Ayabe moved to New York in 2016 to pursue a comedy career, and five years later he's completely M.I.A. I really think most Japanese comedians grossly underestimate american entertainment and especially stand-up comedy.
Even Hitoshi Matsumoto, who's a comedic genius (in my opinion), whould have a hard time making it in the US, so why would younger, humor-challenged yoshimoto alums think they could do it is beyond me.

Hey remember a month ago when our GOP apologists were somehow accusing Nancy Pelosi of wanting to crash the economy and cause the death of all working americans by refusing them a new stimulus check? (complete fabrication, of course).
Well, now republicans blocked a new stimulus check and those same people are happily applauding. Because a new stimulus check would...crash the economy and cause the death of all working americans?
If this was a parody, it would actually be pretty funny. Unfortunately, these guys are actually serious.

Liberals can't say anything when it comes to bigotry
Let's see, on one side there's a political group mostly comprised of rich white men (plus some women and a very occasional minority), and on the other a diverse group of white, latino, indian, asian and black men and women. I wonder which one is more likely to be bigoted? I reaaaaally wonder.... Hmmm.... Tough one... If only one of the groups was doing something blatantly racist, like actively trying to keep minorities from voting, it would be so much easier to identify them...

Lower taxes, deregulation, more incentives to small businesses, refortify the border, stop illegal immigration, empower more the middle class, focus on American first, ensure energy independence....
You are citing conservative ideas in general, but not the actual 2021 GOP platform.
nothing should be online anymore for anyone cut that out and you will cut down on voter fraud.
Are you actually under the impression that "online voting" somehow exists for american elections?
of course, and the job creators passed it on down to the middle class

I think they do have the right to not vaccinate.
Vaccinations are like condoms. People can choose not to wear them and spread disease around, but it's not a "right", it's a prerogative. A selfish, dangerous one.

because their exercised their human rights.
Not getting vaccinated is not a "human right", it's a prerogative. Stop trying to make your argument sound grandiose by invoking it.
The government is formulating policies and forcing private companies to comply with them.
What "private companies" are you talking about? In theory if you're stopped from entering a country, it will happen at the (airport) border of said country, so there's no private company involved.
