North Korea for morons

Something strange is happening in the left as of late. Following the death of the captured American student Otto Warmbier last week, it has now become convenient for leftists to defend the totalitarian regime of North Korea, thereby sinking the lowest they could possibly sink. Left wing outlets like Huff Post, Salon and Affinity Magazine went out dancing on Warmbier’s corpse, rationalising their behaviour by saying that Warmbier didn’t respect the law of the country he was visiting. For those who don’t know or have forgotten by now, Otto Warmbier visited North Korea and stole a propaganda poster from the hotel he was staying in.

Of course, they aren’t wrong when they say Warmbier disrespected the country’s laws, but isn’t it ironic that the same people who view Donald Trump as a totalitarian dictator who must be resisted at all costs don’t have the same view of Kim Jong-un, an…

  1. Well, from a Satanic perspective I’m immediately thinking of the third rule of the earth: “When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.” And considering just how easily the N.Korean government takes offense at even the slightest disrespect, that’s a lair where you won’t ever catch me going.

At the very least it speaks more for how brutal the country is and reflects very negatively on it.

        You know how it goes: walking through the winter forest, she sees a snake freezing to death and asking to be picked up and kept warm. The girl says, “No, you’ll bite me.” The snake says, “No I won’t.” So she puts the snake in her shirt to keep it warm, and later when she trips on a rock the snake gets scared and bites her. As she lays dying, she asks the snake why it bit her and the snake says, “You knew I was a snake when you picked me up.”

        Everybody who ever voluntarily chose to visit N.Korea knew they were picking up a snake.
