day of infamy squared

Nation Aghast As Obama Daughters Eat Asian Food on Pearl Harbor Day

Add to Flipboard Magazine.
WOULD YOU EAT COUSCOUS ON 9/11?Before “Pearl Harbor” was reduced to a three-hour reel of explosions starring overpriced wooden puppet Ben Affleck, it was a place where a bunch of American soldiers were attacked by a bunch of Japanese soldiers these seventy years ago today. A Day of Infamy, if you will. You may remember from every commemorative evening news broadcast since then that Americans generally avoid doing anything Asian-sounding on this day, to honor the fallen and to keep our wounds fresh. This year, though, you can count out those Obama daughters and their fancy-schmancy private school to have other plans. America-hating plans!

You can thank some local CBS affiliate “WUSA9” for keeping it so VERY eyewitness-y today, allowing the right-wing blogs to suffer a complete meltdown.

BREAKING HARD:

What are President Obama’s kids eating at school on Pearl Harbor day? Japanese food, of course!

Sidwell Friends School’s website shows the menu for Wednesday December 7th, 2011, the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, as an Asian food day.
[…]
It was the bloodiest foreign attack on U.S. soil in the modern war era, until the September 11th attacks in 2001.
Here are the options for Malia Obama and her sister, Sasha on the “Day that will live in Infamy: December 7, 2011.
Asian Mushroom Soup
Oriental Noodle Salad
Classic Spinach Salad
Teriyaki Marinated Chicken Strips
Szechuan Tofu and Veggies
Garlic Roasted Edamame
Vegetable Fried Rice
Fortune Cookies

Is the Szechuan cuisine of southwestern China native to Japan now? Eh, DETAILS. And oh, look, the kids also managed to get the Pearl Harbor Day Ceremony cancelled, too, probably as part of their training in Kenyan voodoo. [WUSA9]

    "Friends" school? Let me guess. Pacifists, right? My kids will be eating a appropriately commemorative dinner of saltwater and diesel-fuel soup with a side of burnt pineapple. And that meal will be served under the dinner table so my family can imagine we're eating in the galley of the Arizona. Nobody "never forgets" harder than me.

      Isn't it obvious that Michelle and Barack Obama, who have NOTHING ELSE AT ALL to do, planned this menu themselves?

        No, this is clearly the work of the First Lady's Deputy Chief Of Staff For Winding Up The Teatards For Lulz. The Obamas have a good old time reading offended Wingnut Blog Posts in "King Of The Hill" accents around the dinner table every evening.

    Jeebus H. Tap Dancing Christ on a Broad Noodle.

    Szechuan Tofu and Veggies, Garlic Roasted Edamame, Vegetable Fried Rice, Fortune Cookies — are all CHINESE.

    You dis-(ahem)-oriented asshats.

    • OneYieldRegular

      Except for the fortune cookies, which are REAL AMERICAN.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

      Edamame is Japanese. At least the word is, and I'm not familiar with the use of steamed salted green soybeans in Chinese cuisine, although, given how much that term encompasses, I could be wrong (and if I am, for mercy's sake tell me instead of leaving me to twist here in the wind like some pompous, inaccurate ass). Also, fortune cookies are not traditional — probably invented by those clever early Chinese immigrants.

      But yes, most Americans seem to be unable to tell one Asian from another. Pretty fucking insulting, but what can ya do?

      • anniegetyerfun

        In China, edamame are called mao dou (hairy beans; yeah, it's funny), and they are served approximately the same way. Boiled, with some flavor like star anise, tons of salt, and maybe some garlic. Common as a street food at night markets.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

          Zhen-de ma? Northern Chinese street food? I've never seen or heard of in Southern Chinese cuisine, but like I said, there's plenty I don't know, so, please to educating me!

          Your real name isn't Fuchsia Dunlop, by any chance, is it?

          Edited to add: Hao chi ma? I'm used to all the snacky things from Southern Chinese cuisine, mostly Hakka (Khek), Teochew, Hokkien, Cantonese, Hainanese, some Szechuanese, some Shanghainese. Melon seeds of different kinds, salted peanuts, dried salted fish and shrimp and all the horrible/tasty pickled stuff. This one, ah, not so have seen the before, lor.

          • anniegetyerfun

            我不会骗你! Yes, Northern cuisine. I saw it most in Beijing, hardly at all in Urumqi. If only I had a totally awesome name, but alas. My parents were boring.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

            Thought so. I've always wanted to go to Urumqi. Did you like it there?

            I have a (in my parents' opinion) totally awesome name. No one ever remembers it, pronounces or spells it correctly, or even takes my repeated and somewhat curmudgeonly hints to quit trying already.

            I wouldn't have minded being Fuchsia Dunlop, though. She's had a fascinating life and has more knowledge about Szechwanese food than the Kitchen God (灶君). But boring parents tend to ensure long and happy lives for their offspring. Children of exciting parents end up being addicted to harmful, if interesting, behaviours.

          • anniegetyerfun

            Eh, I'm still an alcoholic. I mean, my parents are boring, but Scottish and Russian. So there's that. But now I'm jealous and want to know what your name is.You know, Urumqi is a fantastic place to visit – living there is a bit tough. Like all places in China, it's easier if you're a man than if you're a woman. I had high hopes for learning Uighur and going to grad school, but they were pretty much dashed when I realized how all of Western China is still embroiled in the kind of petty corruption and dishonesty that I expect in, say, India. I mean, it's not like you won't come across that kind of thing in Beijing's universities, but I feel like it's less over there, at least for foreigners. Also, the Uighur culture is highly sexist. Having majored in Islamic Studies, I thought I was ready to deal with it, but I wasn't.That said, the food is good (everything from noodles to insanely tasty fruit to a dish called da pan ji (big plate chicken, best enjoyed in Urumqi) to greasy, spicy kebabs) and the summertime weather is great, if you like bone-drying white-hot heat. The scenery is mind-blowing, especially around the Tian Shan mountains.

      • MLite

        I was being sarcastic, but that doesn't mean it isn't true ;). You can see their "logic": "We don't like Commie China, Japan was evil and hated our freedom, therefore they were allies (and also, too, Al-Qaeda, Saddam Hussein, North Korea, Iran, and THE ILLEGALS…orchestrated of course by the Librul Atheist Muslins and their Kenyan overlord BARACK HUSSEIN NOBAMA). I mean, when have facts or changing time lines ever gotten in the way of their theories? It's all the same Axis of Evil who want to kill Jesus (i.e. The Jews). But we can't say Glenn Beck didn't warn us!"

      A DECADE? The Japanese began attacking China in one manner or another around 1905, shortly after the Russo-Japanese war ended. From 1905 on, it was one military action after another until the Kwangtung Army engineered the Mukden Incident of 1931 that led to open war. Japan was only too happy to join with the Western powers after 1860 to chop up China like a watermelon: http://kalimao.blogspot.com/2008/03/world-colonia

    As a kid I'd have taken the Sidwell diet over my public school regimen of canned potatoes, swamp gravy and pink applesauce any day.

    Then again maybe not — I was a picky eater, but I outgrew it. And as someone on another thread here has conjectured recently: what of the adults we come across who have yet to try dining at an Asian restaurant or ordering Chinese takeout? I have one co-worker in her late 50s who says the only thing "oriental" she's ever had comes in a Stouffer's heat-&-eat.

    • OurHoboSenator

      Back in the late 90s when I frequently drove Hwy. 401 east of Toronto, I used to tune in this insane right wing Xtian radio station from Rochester, NY (sample commentary: "People think England is our ally. But did you know they had TWO wars against us?").

      They used to run this ad for some no-doubt horrible Chinese buffet where a woman with a thick Western NY accent would ask "Have you always wanted to try Oriental food but were afraid?"

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

        Afraid! This from people who think PEPPER is a fucking spice to be used sparingly!

        WTF are they so "afraid" of? It's food, fer chrisake, it's not like it's gonna jump up off the plate and eat PEOPLE.

      I feel your pain, having refused to eat with my coworkers more than once because their ideas were 'you wanna order Domino's subs online' and 'We have a coupon for Olive Garden'
      I had Domino's in college, but goddammit, I will go to my grave without setting foot in that fauxtalian shithole. Once even told my best friend and his wife that I would just go home and cook when they suggested it one evening.
      That is a good damn menu, though. I've been inside Sidwell, and it was nicer than my uppity private college, Michelle O should accept no less.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

      I've finally converted some of the eejits in my end of the swamp and taught them what good fresh REAL Asian food IS. None of this "cumin-scented" shit and "Thai-inspired" crap. La Casa de Los Gatos prides itself on making everything from scratch in a WIDE variety of cuisines. From Adobo to Tom Ka Gai to Babi Kecap to Arroz Caldo, this establishment serves it all.

      Geezus, Stouffer's heat-&-eat. Wouldn't I like to fetch her a solid clip across the ear.

    • eaglewon

      no it's not, my girlfriend is Asian, she has no problem with it. I've discussed it with some of our other friends, they're all ok with "oriental". Of course people don't use it as much as they used to, but it's not a bad word or demeaning in any way.

        It's all part of the plan. The tried and tested blueprint. Lots of people know that the Gleichschaltung ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gleichschaltung ) that resulted in every institution in Germany being under the total control of the Führer was instituted gradually, so that it would be harder to resist. But not so many people know that the first institution to be brought into line was a private school lunchroom in Lübeck.

    Oh god, the comments at the Post are just ridiculous (some of them I mean, others correct the idiocy). Not only is this somehow important, but the Obamas created this menu (of mostly Chinese food, once again) and ordered Sidwell Friends to run it, as an intentional slap in the face to the troops. Gah people are stupid.

    And for fuck's sake, Pearl Harbor was seventy fucking years ago. I guess, out of respect for the troops, we should refuse to eat Mexican food on the anniversary of the day Mexican troops stepped into a part of Mexico that we decided to say should be ours, thus allowing the US to falsely claim the Mexicans had invaded us and launch a war to steal their land?

    From our friend Wikipedia it seems many of these are from Japan's arch foe China:
    Edamame bean is a preparation of immature soybeans in the pod commonly found in Japan, China, and Hawaii.
    Fried rice is a popular component of Asian cuisine, especially Chinese food.
    Fortune cookies are often served as a dessert in Chinese restaurants in the United States and some other countries, but are absent in China.

    I doubt Asian Mushroom Soup is called so in Asia. Worst of all Classic Spinach Salad is probably French.

    • TheGyrus

      I doubt Asian Mushroom Soup is called so in Asia.

      In Asia, the just call it "Mushroom Soup"

      • Lionel[redacted]Esq

        Or "Campbells."

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

        If you know anything at all about Chinese cuisine, the various soups that have mushrooms in them generally also have names along the lines of "The General's Foot Breaks The Back Of The Mounted Troops," or "Pearls Among The Jade," or "Spring Snow Overflows The Riverbanks."

        Chinese cuisine is delightfully poetic (and sometimes amazingly coarse, but always entertaining) in terms of names. None of this "Duck cooked in Orange Juice" descriptive business. When they say descriptive, they MEAN descriptive.

    • Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Edamame bean is a preparation of immature soybeans in the pod commonly found in Japan, China, and Hawaii.

      So, now it all begins to make sense. I expect an extra special Glenn Beck Black Board rant on Edamame and the coming Communist revolution in the next day or two. Didn't Bill Ayers once try to blow up a cop using only Edamame and Soy Sause?

          Talk about "paste at volume" — I came, like, 50 fucking times tonight! I'm gonna go smoke a carton of cigarettes now…

          Your upfists are on the dresser. Your avatard is in my stalk box. And your p-ness is forever in my wet spot.

    Obama flew the planes into the Pearl Harbor Trade Center himself before parachuting out over a Pennsylvania cornfield where he played Chinese checkers with illegal Messicans in the back of a Toyota. It's true. I read it on the InnerNet.

    Seeing G. Gordon Liddy bitching about someone not being patriotic enough and getting taken credibly pretty much sums up how completely stupid the conservatives are at this point.

    • Steverino247

      The trick is not minding that he's a criminal sonofabitch now making a good living spouting his bullshit.

    • ttommyunger

      G. Gordon Liddy, America's most flagrant fuck-up; next to Dubya….Tape over a lock to keep a door open, briefcase with WH phone numbers left in hotel room, WH phone #s in possession of his men at the time of arrest? What an ignorant dick, can't carry out a simple black-bag burglary without bringing an Administration down. I used his whole name in the hope that he sees this on his daily "google alerts". Dipshit!

      Isn't this the same genius who went bobbing for French fries on a lark?

  • Guppy

    On this day 70 years ago, an expansionist empire attacked the world's biggest oil producer simply because they refused to play ball.

    Are we done yet?

    • ttommyunger

      You are correct, sadly, in this Country there is no prize for that.

  • Steverino247

    Today, the Japanese can own places they could only fly over 70 years ago. That's progress!

      Admiral Ackbar, they have sushi chefs who specialize in removing the poison sacs now.

  • CheeseNPear

    They should have eaten Hamburgers and Frankfurters. Nobody could possibly associate those names with any country other than the good old USA, could they? At least, not one with any WWII record worse than the Japanese, right?

      Just be sure to wash your hands before nailing anything that day.

        *Always* wash your hands before AND after. That's how STDs are spread.

    Pearl Harbor was NOT an "attack on U.S. soil". Hawaii was not part of the U.S. in 1941.
    Just sayin'.

      Whereas Grover Norquist's wife is a MUZLIM TERRORIST!

    • horsedreamer_1

      I think it's alright since they are breeding the Asian out of their line. Like Native Americans turning white when they convert to Mormony.

  • RadioYKWE

    Yeah, we all eat shit on 9/11 day.

  • user-of-owls

    True Story: Back in grad school I worked in the Japanese Consulate in Houston as a "speech writer." Can Owls hoot in Japanese? No, not a lick. What I did was take the feed from the Foreign Ministry in Tokyo, the same feed/words/speech that every single Japanese diplomat from Berlin to Ougadougou was giving, and transform the "English" they sent into something the East Bushy Rock Rotary Club could marginally understand.

    Anyway, every December 7, they dragged out either the lowliest schmuck on the totem pole or someone who'd been very, very bad and stuck him in front of a telephone from 7am until 6pm to exclusively answer all the calls that came in regarding Pearl Harbor from the locals. So for 11 hours straight, and the phone never stopped ringing, the poor bastard listened to an endless stream of expletives punctuated by Jap, Nip and, why not, Chink. Many a Japanese Foreign Service sarariman was broken on that day.

      Holy shiitake!

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

      Smoked duck with enoki mushrooms sounds deelish. Wouldn't the duck kinda overpower the 'shrooms, though?

      You should tempura any further comments on this topic, lest people get all bento out of shape.

      • anniegetyerfun

        So you're saying you don't wonton of questions surrounding this issue to crop up?

        • not that Dewey

          A little discretion gyoza long way.

  • a_pink_poodle

    I can't be bothered to come up with a smart ass comment about this so I'm just going to say the original author is stupid and, believe me, I know stupid. I have a masters in stupid as well as a minor in idiocy and buffoonery.

  • Troglodeity

    Newt Gingrich, on the other hand, patriotically refused to pay child support for his two daughters from his first marriage – so as to avoid any possibility that he might be contributing to their eating Japanese food on Pearl Harbor Day.

  • ttommyunger

    Well, it's my birthday, too (sort of like "Born on the Fourth of July," but different) and I ate Thai food yesterday.

    Just wait until these guys found out that roughly 1.2 million New Yorkers ate falafel or halal lamb for lunch, this past 9/11. NEVER FORGET, PEOPLE!

    Ahemhemhem… "It is rather insensitive for Asia to have been built so close to Japanese ground"
