    If you truly want to see what some posters in these forums sound like, try a site called “Korean Central News Agency”.

    A couple of excerpts from KCNA concerning the guilt and execution of Kim Jong Un’s uncle:

    “However, despicable human scum Jang, who was worse than a dog, perpetrated thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the party and the leader for him.”

    “Even after they were disclosed and purged by the resolute measure of the party, he patronized those cat’s paws and let them hold important posts of the party and state.”

    “He let the decadent capitalist lifestyle find its way to our society by distributing all sorts of pornographic pictures among his confidants since 2009. He led a dissolute, depraved life, squandering money wherever he went.”

    Blood is thicker than water, but still runs. Interesting that our own “little Kims” lean so far right they drag their fingernails off, but are equally psychotic.

    Looks like they use google translate plus flowery plus mad filter…

    @omQ R

    I don’t think the madness is filtered. I also think the writers are a hoot! I watched a video out of NK with normal citizens praising the Kims and they all phrased their praise in the same general language as that of KCNA.

    I’ve seen a couple doccies about NK which had “tourist guides” (minders?) state such outlandish porkies with a straight face that one gets the idea they aren’ lying …they honestly believe the nonsense they regurgitate. At times I felt embarrassment watching them. Some lies are so childish it beggars belief.

    I must admit I would love to visit NK but I sort of hate myself for wanting to…it would be car-crash tourism.

    What about “IgnoredbytheLeft”? I’m willing to do my part.

    Man, if Kim Jong Un even kills his own Uncle, that shows you how much of a freaking nut job he is.

    Yes, I miss martens. Sometimes I feel that this place is being overrun by …., well, by people I don’t really want to talk with. So I don’t talk to them, mostly. So I really value those, on both sides, who display a certain intelligence and civility and humor. Have a good day.
