Liberal Democratic Party (Japan)
| It doesn't stop|
at the water's edge
The Liberal Democratic Party(自由民主党, LDP) is a conservative party that is Japanese nationalist and right-wing populist in Japan. The party is made up of an enormous number of factions, but it is largely divided into "conservative essence"(保守本流) and "conservative discharge."(保守傍流). they ruled for almost 54 years! Continuously![note 1][note 2] The LDP is currently Japan's ruling party.
Originally, it was a center-right to right-wing(=conservative essence in mainstrim) party, but in the 21st century, moderates fell and hard-rightists(=conservative discharge in mainstrim) took control of the party. The current Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe[note 3], belongs to the party and is so far-right that Steve Bannon once called "a great hero to the grassroots, the populist, and the nationalist movement throughout the world.". The party's ultra-rightist tendencies have become so serious that it can no longer be called the center-right.

- You know, except those 11 months in 1993 and 1994
- The only party in a democratic nation to beat them in terms of longevity of reign is Mexico's PRI that - as chance would have it - returned to power again after a brief absence from it.
- Abe's creed is the strongest historical revisionist, denialist, ultra-nationalist and right-wing populism in the post-war Japanese conservative administrations, and his wife is suspected of sponsoring radical anti-Korean kindergartens. and his father is Nobusuke Kishi, a World War II first class war criminal. Before that, Japan's conservative and right-wing regimes also had nationalist tendencies, but since the 1960s, few governments have been as far-right as Abe.
- Anti-Korean sentiment is common among Japanese nationalists. And this includes both South and North Korea.
