LOS ANGELES - On July 31, 2012, the Rafu Shimpo published George Yoshinaga's column, "Horse's Mouth - About Signing 'Markers' In Vegas, which opened with one of his typical, misguided, ignorant rants that had nothing to do with the headline of his column.

This time, Yoshinaga railed against the much-publicized exhibit at the Heart Mountain Interpretive Learning Center, Esse Quam Videri: Muslim Self-Portraits.
Since Yoshinaga has proven to be unwilling to, or incapable of, considering other points of view, this piece is aimed at those who might be swayed by Yoshinaga's ravings, rather than trying to convince a lost cause. Read more of this post

On September 8, 2010, Rafu Shimpo columnist George Yoshinaga once again railed against the use of concentration camp to describe the camps that Americans of Japanese ancestry and their immigrant parents were imprisoned in during World War II.
In Yoshinaga's column, "Horse's Mouth: Raku, A Japanese Restaurant" (Yoshinaga's comments were also included in a separate column, "Horse's Mouth: The Richest Countries In The World," September 14, 2010), he claimed that the ten camps were not concentration camps because, "those who wanted to leave camp had no problem, contrary to her statements."
...
Yoshinaga went on to describe his exploits outside the barbed wire, more than implying that he and all other Japanese Americans at the Heart Mountain camp had complete freedom and could come and go as they pleased. Read more of this post
