Japanese Naval Forces Bomb Pearl Harbor; President Roosevelt Orders Washington Monument Bathed in Colors of the Rainbow to Celebrate American Diversity!



Using the powers vested in me as a blogger I traveled to an alternate timeline and visited Washington D.C. on December 8th, 1941 to watch President Roosevelt address a joint session of Congress. This timeline is very progressive and compassionate.

Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, members of the Senate and the House of Representative and all people of color:

Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 – a date where once again America was seared by gun violence – oh when will it ever end? – the United States of America was after much forethought and keeping in mind the justifiable historical enmity between our two countries attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was not currently bombing that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its Emperor looking towards signing a treaty that would be my signature achievement.

Indeed,, the Japanese Ambassador, representing that peace-loving peoples delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. This reply stated that the United States has historically oppressed that island nation, which we regrettably have.

So it must be admitted that the Japanese attack, if you want to call it that, was justified.  We must look into ourselves and accept responsibility for our racism.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands was not an attack by the entire Japanese people. To suggest that we are at war with the entire Japanese race is the worst and most contemptible form of racism.

The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States, at least the progressive, enlightened people, have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications of their previous racism.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy I have directed that all measures be taken for our emotional healing.

No matter how long it may take us to overcome our racism, the American people, in their progressive might, will win through to absolute color-blindness.

I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we have had enough. Enough of widows and orphans at the hand of gun violence. And the Japanese did use guns, assault guns, on their planes.  Congress must act to ban assault guns.

There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger. No more hate!  No more racism against the Japanese.

With confidence in our psychologists and professional emotional counselors. with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph over our racist triumphalism.

I ask that the Congress declare that the Washington Monument be lit up with the colors of the rainbow to celebrate American diversity. I ask that the American people hold candelight vigils demanding an end to hate. I ask the American people to take a Japanese person out to lunch and let them know that we are sorry for our past racism and that we do not hold the Japanese people responsible for the attack from Japan

Thank you.

Such compassion!  If only the FDR from our timeline was this forgiving and progressive.

    … and in compensation for our xenophobia towards the honorable peace loving Nips-oops I mean gooks-oops fish heads-oops Japs, in the future we will destroy our automobile and steel industries and buy these goods from Japan. Hopefully this appeasement will deter these good people from further aggression.
