The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has launched a coordinated attack on Japan’s handling of treated water left from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident. Despite Japan’s careful efforts, the CCP and their groveling media cronies are painting them as if they are irresponsibly dumping radioactive water into the sea.
The water – enough “to fill more than 500 Olympic-sized swimming pools” – has been the subject of debate since the March 11, 2011 nuclear accident. Japan intends to release treated water from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant into the ocean over a period starting in two years and lasting for a decade.
China, who has been “depleting” the world’s oceans, is hypocritically targeting Japan.
The establishment media is happily taking their marching orders by piling on, misrepresenting the initiative by Japan Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga as impulsive and irresponsible.
CCP officials coordinated their attacks on Japan on social media:

The United States Response
The United States has supported Japan in their measures to safely dispose of the treated water. Ned Price, spokesman for the State Department said in part in a press release:
In this unique and challenging situation, Japan has weighed the options and effects, has been transparent about its decision, and appears to have adopted an approach in accordance with globally accepted nuclear safety standards.
Further, Secretary of State Antony Blinken publicly thanked Japan for their transparency in the process, earning him a characteristically condescending rebuke from China Daily EU Bureau Chief Chen Weihua:
The State Council Information Office of China was particularly biting:
Watch as the CCP media bashes the Secretary of State for daring to support Japan:
The current Prime Minister served as Chief Cabinet Secretary under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is hated by the left. It is obvious that the concerns about the water are more political than substantive.
