Follow the money.

Read "Agents of Influence" by Pat Choate, Reform Party VP candidate and former lobbyist for TRW.

Know that the powerful Japan business community but more specifically hypersensitive Americans who represent the Japan business community in the US have made attempts in the past to shut down historical representations of Pearl Harbor.

Kentucky several years ago was one of them.

Janice Hahn's south L.A. district is in one of the areas of largest concentration of Japanese investment in the United States. Stereos, cars, shiploading, docks, retail, electronics.

It is not a far stretch to assume that representatives of the JBA (lobby group) from these interests, or the Japan America Society, went to Janice Hahn and told her 'show the movie and no more donations', or perhaps 'we will find investing in downstate Illinois a little more attractive' or even 'my, we would not want the world to have a racist image of your district now would we?'" I am privy first hand to these types of subtle threats and hard ball folks. It really happens.

Yep. This was done to shut off movies or events or historic re-enactments or shut off debate on these and other 'sensitive' issues when it was deemed 'politically incorrect.' I would not be surprised if an organization know as JACL is behind his one. If you check their website, you would probably find something right now about 'stop the hate-movie in San Pedro'. Would'nt surprise me, folks.

Follow the money. Follow the money. Follow the money.

Someone is threatening Janice Hahn's office and putting political pressure on her for Americans to 'self-censor'. Straight out of "Agents of Influence" and the movie "Rising Sun."

Not sure the Japan-America society would be interested in this, and the whole issue is old news to the JACL.

This Hahn woman, however, is the issue. She clearly doesn't know the difference between Japanese and Japanese-Americans. Actually, your post has the same flaw. But nevermind. Ms. Hahn is obviously little more than your typical obnoxious liberal ignoramus.
