The purpose of the US’s prevailing 2018 belief of the Japanese-Americans in 1941 was to make people as if they were obligated to falsely blame Japanese descent for the bombing. Furthermore, they make propaganda posters telling the Japanese they are banned from certain areas and aren’t worthy to be their due to their background and telling the American citizens how the Japanese were untrustworthy and bad people.they make propaganda posters telling the Japanese they are banned from certain areas and aren’t worthy to be their due to their background and telling the American citizens how the Japanese were untrustworthy and bad
In The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, Miller uses one of his main characters, Abigail, to cause fear among the townspeople due to witchcraft. Abigail takes advantage of everyone's fear, and gets the townspeople to turn against each other or to take her side, however in the end the results are disastrous as 19 people are left dead and many remain in prison due to the accusations. Arthur Miller does this to demonstrate to his audience the dangers of using fear to motivate an audience to confront a threat. On the other hand, Franklin D. Roosevelt uses the Pearl Harbor incident to cause fear among his audience. Roosevelt uses his audience's fear of being attacked unexpectedly, like the Pearl Harbor incident, in hope to persuade them to support the war and volunteer to go to war, and the result left over 100,000 military personnel dead at the end of the war.
In my opinion bombing Japan was the right thing to do at the time. The war resulted in an unprecedented death of thousands of US soldiers. Is it morally acceptable to risk the lives of more soldiers if we have this weapon at our disposal? If we decided to invade Japan, who knows how high the death rate would have been. Japan attacked us first thinking that they could take us out of the war before we even joined.
“December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy-” is when Pearl Harbor was suddenly and intentionally attacked by “naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” President Franklin Roosevelt in his speech asserts that the attack on Pearl Harbor is a justified reason for the United States to go to war, because of the damage and tragedy done to the nation. He supports this claim by, first using situational irony and diction appealing to logos, then anaphora appealing to pathos, finally authority appealing to ethos. President Roosevelt’s purpose is to persuade Congress in order to convince them into allowing the United States to enter the war. President Roosevelt begins his speech to the American people and Congress by recalling the events
Additionally, Whitman uses a proof known as expression of disgust. He does this when he says, “Law made second class citizens of Blacks, Filipinos, Puerto Ricans, Asians and Native. Most especially deprived these non- white Americans of any meaningful right to vote (Whitman para. 3)” In this quote he expresses his disgust with the practice, but proves that it is something that Nazis would support. By combining fear of pain and expression of disgust Whitman effectively leverages the readers emotion to believe that the Nazis really did love
This fear, he is hoping, will cause his people to want to take action and precautions against the evil at hand. Because he wants his people to be on his side when launching war on Japan, he appeals to pathos in the way he speaks by provoking feelings of anger and a hunger for revenge toward Japan. Other strategically stated phrases from Roosevelt, such as “deliberately sought to deceive” or “unprovoked and dastardly”, have a similar effect. Words that really stand out when this is said are deliberately, unprovoked, and dastardly. He really makes a point of how the Japanese went out of their way to attack America when in turn, Americans have been nothing but peaceful to Japan and its people prior to the attacks.
He states in a diary entry after the bomb; "Nobody is more disturbed over the use of Atomic bombs than I am but I was greatly disturbed over the unwarranted attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor and their murder of our prisoners of war. The only language they seem to understand is the one we have been using to bombard them.” Truman wanted these Japanese atrocities to end, for the war to end, and for eventual world peace. He made the decision to drop the bomb in order to save as many of his own as he could, which any good leader would
Because about 3 months before their internment, Japan itself did attack a harbor, destroying ships, ruining a lot of people’s lives, breaking FDR’s heart down. During this internment, Japanese people, except those who lived in Hawaii, treated in a most badly way. There’s an attitude in some Americans that discriminated someone by their races, so then some people hated Japs, because they’re Asians. “Propaganda began to spread that Japanese-American fishing boat “will sow mines across the entrance of our ports…. Japanese farmers … will send their peas and potatoes and squash full of arsenic to the markets.” One California barbershop offered “free shaves for Japs” but was not responsible for
I strongly disagree with the internment of Japanese-Americans because it was unconstitutional, the Japanese-Americans showed loyalty by volunteering to fight in the 442nd combat team, and because of the hypocrisy of the situation. The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, on December 7, 1941 brought the United States into World War II. This brought worry and disgust from American citizens, towards the Japanese Americans and caused the passing of Executive Order 9066. The executive order imprisoned 110,000 of citizens in internment camps. Internment is a less ruinous word then prison.
The author, Arthur Miller, wrote “The Crucible” that tells us the hysteria of the Salem Witch Trials. The society in Salem in 1692 was full of McCarthyism and fear because they thought their other citizens are doing witchcraft. Miller tells us that ignorance and fear combined can destroy a town’s social well-being. On the play, “The Crucible”, the citizens of Salem’s reacted with fear when they hear that someone has a sign of being a witch. For example, when someone coughs, society thought he/she’s a witch.
The Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor caused Japanese Americans to face discrimination. They were viewed as spies and suspicious. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry were sent to one of 10 internment camps. Japanese Americans should receive reparations from the U.S. government because it was unfair what happened to them during WWII. Life for Japanese Americans in the camps was bad.
The Japanese Americans were treated unfairly during their captivation in the internment camps. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought the US into the second World War making the Japanese people an easy target for hate and suspicion. The American government forced all Japanese Americans into internment camps that were extremely cramped and unsanitary. The anti-Japanese propaganda influenced by the raging war just outside America, fueled Americans with hatred and distrust towards these immigrants which in turn made the engagement of the Japanese people, as well as culture such an easy feat. The United States was launched into WWII on December 7, 1941, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.
Building up to the mid 1940s, Japan’s resentment towards western civilizations grew in response to their forced trade relationships. After militarily taking over parts of China, Japan decided to strike the United States before they could respond to Japan’s belligerence. With the attack of Pearl Harbor, Japan pushed the United States to officially join the Second World War. Fear from the attack towards the Japanese and existing racism lead to the internment of the Japanese citizens of North America, which led to hostile relations between those of the Japanese and the Americans. Pearl Harbor created an overwhelming fear amongst the citizens of America of the Japanese.
With the warnings given by radio, alarms, and leaflets, this demonstrates that the Japanese knew what could happen to their beloved city and decided not to evacuate their cities. Therefore knowing how the Japanese soldiers think about surrendering, the millions of lives saved by ending the war quickly and shortly, and the countless warnings given to the Japanese, I think dropping the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was warranted and
In the early 1900s, due to Imperial Japan’s struggling transition from the feudal era to the modern era, Japanese immigrants were flooding into the West coast of America. Fearful of the rising number of Japanese immigrants, Americans would proceed to try and eradicate the “yellow peril”, leading to prejudiced exchanges and racist encounters with the Japanese-Americans. These encounters would drastically affect the Japanese-American community and ultimately lead to their internment during WWII. Because of Imperial Japan’s struggle to come into the modern age, its economy was increasingly worsened. The first Japanese-Americans, or Issei, came to America in the early 1880s, looking for work and adventure.
