  1. I see the Fake News has disabled comments on the Florida shooting video, you communists are scared of the truth getting out

  2. I am worried about how many people are contaminated with radioactivity in the water and food they eat. Many Japanese upper class have been aware of the seriousness of radioactivity risk and have immigrated a lot, but Canada and Australia are not issuing passports to protect their citizens.

  3. Radioactive Pilgrimage(放射能旅行) – Traveling or Staying in Japan Eating food and beverages should make you ready to die.Japan's Radioactive Contamination Discharge Channel Pacific, US Coastal Vineyard Cesium Pollution

  4. How come Japanese hide and lie about a radioactive endangerment of 2020 Olympics. Plus, they are planning to supply rice and all food sources from Fukushima and offer them to athletes and tourists. Tell the world the truth! Shame on NBC!
