Rightwingers land on Senkakus, hoist flags | The Japan Times Online

SENKAKU, Islands Okinawa Pref. — In a move likely to further inflame tensions with Beijing, Japanese nationalists raised Hinomaru flags on one of the islets at the heart of a corrosive territorial row with China on Sunday.

Around a dozen members of the rightwing group Gambare Nippon (Hang in There Japan) swam ashore from a 20-boat flotilla carrying activists and lawmakers.

The landing comes just days after Tokyo deported pro-Beijing protesters who landed on the same islet, which is part of the Senkaku Islands.

I guess that means that when Japanese land on their own islands, (the Senkaku's are part of Okinawa and Okinawa prefecture is part of Japan) it's OK to say that they're right wing nut jobs but, when the Chinese illegally come ashore on Japanese territory, it's not politically correct to call them left wing nut jobs or war mongers! Now it all makes sense!
