The emperor was very much an issue. To New Deal hardliners, he (and all he represented) the main source of the problem and had to be totally destroyed. If it was really a “non-issue” the U.S. would have agreed at the outset to a conditional surrender.

Oh, so now it’s a New Dealer conspiracy to slaughter Japanese civilians? How novel... and how irrelevant and preposterous.
