Biden Calls Japan Xenophobic in Ridiculous Speech

Biden calls Japan xenophobic, but Japan is actually smart, prioritizing social cohesion and avoiding the same mistakes of the Biden admin.

Under the Biden administration, our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us, and why should they? Just look at the recent blunder with Japan: Biden labeled them xenophobic for their prudent immigration policies. This sort of diplomatic misstep not only insults a steadfast ally but also undermines mutual respect. Japan’s approach to immigration is driven by a desire to maintain social cohesion, an astute recognition of the dangers posed by allowing unchecked masses who may not integrate into their society. Such careless comments from Biden reveal a total lack of disrespect for the sovereign rights of other nations.

Biden made these remarks at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, labeling Japan—a staunch U.S. ally—alongside other nations as “xenophobic” due to their restrictive immigration policies. While attempting to champion the supposed economic virtues of American immigration policy, Biden criticized Japan and India, as well as rival nations China and Russia, suggesting their economic challenges stem from a reluctance to embrace immigration.

Biden’s comments truly exemplify his incompetence and how he simplifies and misrepresents the complex economic scenarios and internal policies of these nations. His comments are not just diplomatically insensitive but also reveal a profound misunderstanding of the unique cultural and social frameworks that define other countries.

The backlash from Japanese lawmakers was swift and pointed. Sohei Kamiya of the right-wing populist Sansei Party critiqued the U.S. by stating, “It’s not that we’re xenophobic, we are being cautious after seeing your failures.” Japan is wise to observe the chaos Biden’s open border policy has wrought on America and steer clear of similar mistakes. Any sensible nation would balk at mass migration after witnessing the detrimental effects it’s had here in the U.S.

This situation is a glaring example of how the Biden administration’s approach leads to diplomatic faux pas that does more than ruffle feathers—they can undermine the very alliances that are vital to U.S. strategic interests. It’s especially alarming considering the sophisticated balance required in managing relationships with key allies like Japan and India, who play crucial roles in the geopolitical stability of the Indo-Pacific region.

As we move closer to another election year, these missteps become all the more critical. They reflect a pattern of behavior where the current administration’s attempt to push domestic political narratives overshadows the nuanced realities of international relations. The American public must remain vigilant and hold Biden and his ilk accountable for sowing chaos and division, jeopardizing our national security and the bonds that have been carefully cultivated with our allies over decades.
