December 7 marks the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the so-called "Day of Infamy" that led to the United States' entry into World War II. Conservative pundit Erick Erickson -- who most recently was in the news for shooting a front-page New York Times editorial calling for gun control -- to share a fond childhood recollection of how his family used to observe Pearl Harbor Day: with shameless racism and xenophobia.
Growing up, I remember my parents never letting us have Asian food on December 7th. They were children of WWII.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) December 7, 2015
This is possibly the most idiotic commemoration of December 7. Ever. Erickson's parents, apparently lacking a basic grasp of global geography, politics and history -- not to mention, um, cuisine -- never forgave the entire continent of Asia for Japan's attack on the United States. Wow, they really stuck it 'em.
I don't say this lightly, Mr. Erickson: your parents were morons.
