Sea Shepherd, The Cove, Taiji, Japan, the truth exposed
Sea Shepherd, The Cove, Taiji, Japan,
the truth exposed
In 2009 the film documentary “The Cove” it was released attempting to analyze the dolphin harvesting in Taiji, Japan. The propaganda piece (“The Cove”) eludes to it was difficult for the film crew to get into Taiji indicating the people and police were racist making it difficult for them to enter this picturesque fishing village. Another reason given for this difficulty attributed to the people of the village wanting to keep their dolphin harvesting a secret from the outside world. Huh?
Taiji, Japan ships dolphins all over the world, so how is that trying to keep their dolphin industry a secret? In 2010 the pervert thespians in Hollywood awarded this film a shallow Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Should have been for best propaganda piece or fantasy.
I went to Taiji, Japan in 2011 met with the mayor, and heads of the town’s fishermen’s association. All this without any difficulty. Never once was I stopped by police, despite driving into and around town in a huge customized Chevrolet “good times” van.
In April of 2012 we returned to Taiji in the same van. However this time we took it up a notch. We plastered on both sides of the van a large sign reading in Japanese “foreigner,” 外国人 . We drove all over Taiji, in front of city hall, in front of the police station, the fishermen’s association and once again never stopped. Based upon my travels through this town in 2011 and 2012 I would have to conclude the premise alluded to in the fantasy movie “The Cove” was a gross miss-representation of the truth – a lie!The people of Taiji and neighboring village Nachikatsuura (Nachi-Katsuura) in Wakayama Prefecture, are a warm and friendly people. The portrayal of these good people by “The Cove” and Sea Shepherd’s Cove Guardians is pure fiction with the goal of making money and exploiting the latent racism that exists in suckers around the world to view the fantasy and get donations.
