RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3380Goal: $3500

Yoshihide Suga September 2020 (1).jpg

Yoshihide Suga(菅 義偉) is Japan's current prime minister and a national conservative politician. Suga is a member of the Liberal Democratic Party.

He appeared on TV Asahi in September 2019 and said, "South Korea is responsible for all the twisted relations between South Korea and Japan."[1]

Political position[edit]

  • He is in favor of a constitutional amendment.
  • He reserved his approval for the couple's use of different surnames after marriage. (Legally in Japan, couples must have the same last name.)[2]
  • Like his predecessor Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, he is a strong right-wing nationalist and belongs to the far-right organization Nippon Kaigi.
  • Hōsei University(法政大学), where he graduated, is said to be one of the most leftist private universities in Japan.
