When Japan defeated the U.S. in Germany last year at the Women’s World Cup, one of the worst tweets I remember reading was to the effect of “Japan may have won the World Cup, but the U.S. scored the first two points with Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” referring to the two atomic bombings during World War II. Well, this year’s tweets did not fail to live up.
When are these Olympics over? It’s soon, right?
I haven’t watched a minute of the coverage, admittedly, but I’m sure tired of the jingoism.
