Here is the Tokyo Rose Page Scrubbed Off of Wikipedia
Tokyo Rose died. The left tries to rewrite history. The following wikipedia page got scrubbed off the site for some politically correct reason:
Iva Toguri D'Aquino (July 4, 1916 – September 26, 2006), a Japanese-American, was identified as Tokyo Rose, an identity dubbed by Allied soldiers for a series World War II propaganda-radio hostesses broadcasting from Japan. Identified as Tokyo Rose by the press after the war, she was detained for a year by U.S. military before they decided she had not committed a crime worth prosecuting. Upon return to the U.S., the Federal Bureau of Investigation charged her with eight counts of treason. Her 1949 trial resulted in a conviction on one count, making her the seventh American to be convicted of treason. In 1974, investigative journalists found that key witnesses had lied during testimony and other serious problems with the conduct of the trial. She was pardoned by U.S. President Gerald Ford, becoming the only US citizen convicted of treason to later be pardoned.
She was born Ikuko Toguri in Los Angeles, the daughter of Japanese immigrants. Her father, Jun Toguri, had come to the U.S. in 1899, and her mother in 1913. Ikuko, who went by the name Iva, was a Girl Scout as a child, and raised in the Methodist religion. She attended grammar schools in Calexico, California, and San Diego before returning with her family to Los Angeles. There she finished grammar school, attended high school, and graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a degree in Zoology. A registered Republican, she then worked in her parents' shop.
On July 5, 1941, she sailed for Japan from San Pedro, ostensibly to visit an ailing relative and to possibly study medicine. The U.S. State Department issued her a Certificate of Identification; she did not have a passport. That September in Japan, Toguri applied to the U.S. Vice Consul for a passport, stating she wished to return to the U.S. for permanent residence. Her request was forwarded to the State Department, but the answer had not returned by the attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941), and she was declared an enemy alien in Japan.
Toguri in December 1944 at Radio Tokyo
Following American involvement in the Pacific War, Toguri, like a number of other Americans in Japanese territory, was pressured by the Japanese central government under Hideki Tojo to renounce her United States citizenship, which she refused to do. She gained work as a typist at a Japanese news agency and eventually worked in a similar capacity for Radio Tokyo.
In November 1943, Allied prisoners of war forced to broadcast propaganda selected her to host portions of the one-hour radio show The Zero Hour. Under the stage name "Orphan Anne" and possibly "Your Favorite Enemy, Anne", reportedy in reference to the comic strip character Little Orphan Annie, Toguri performed in comedy sketches and introduced newscasts, with on-air speaking time of generally about 20 minutes. Though earning only 150 yen, or about $7, per month, she used some of her earnings to feed P.O.W.s.
She married Felipe D'Aquino (last name sometimes given only as Aquino), a Portuguese citizen of Japanese-Portuguese descent, on April 19, 1945. The marriage was registered with the Portuguese Consulate in Tokyo, with Toguri declining to take her husband's citizenship.
