I absolutely see where people are getting the nationalism in Shin Godzilla, but I feel as though I can do that to hundreds of films produced here in the U.S.
What irks me is the idea that somehow it's OKAY (not saying this is expressed here necessarily since I've not been here in forever) for MURICA, but not okay for Japan.
I first encountered this at a G-Fest panel wherein some old white dudes were apparently aware of what the ghost of Ishiro Honda thought of everything, despite the franchise shifting and changing to meet the demands of the market and zeitgeist many times over by this point. I guess after years and years of films with varying intents and purposes I am unfazed by this particular entry of DREADED JAPANESE NATIONALISM (tm).
