以下は,今回取り上げた慣用表現に絡(から) めた
愚かな残虐行為の歴史に関する記述です。
The following is just one piece of anecdotal evidence
that shows how xenophobic garbage is growing
like gangrene in the Japanese blogosphere
where jingoistic self-aggrandizing gasbags
are going gangbusters,
slogging their guts off to get out loud
ghastly, grotesque gripes, grumbles and groans.

The other day, I stumbled on a seemingly innocuous
English learning-related blogging site
penned by a Japanese man.
As I perused some of his entries,
I came across some abominable passages.
The long and the short of it is
nothing but crudely-couched racial slur.
This fella made no bones about
betraying his butcher mentality:
he would be happy
if he could
literally make mincemeat of
certain people he regards as "infidels",
in order to feed dogs at that.

Here's my response to the despicable piece.
"The way you made mincemeat of 'infidels'
reminds me of the Third Reich's 'final solution'.
You'd do well to take stock of
several historical facts, old and new.
Look how his chickens came home to roost
for Hitler and his henchmen
when the Allied Forces eviscerated their proud city Berlin.
Look what happened to the former Yugoslavia
that went through ethnic cleansing.
Look how Rwanda was ruined
as Hutus unleashed atrocities against Tutsis.
Look how Osama Bin Laden and his main al Qaeda body
was gutted by the international coalition.
And look how the same fate as above
is now in store for Islamic State.
As evidenced by these fatal consequences,
the bigoted slaughterhouse mentality
espoused by people like you and many others
has time and again proved to be
both
self-defeating and self-destructive.
It will get you nowhere in this modern world."
