(Natural News) As I was scrolling through my various news feeds over the weekend I came across a couple of headlines I was sure belonged to state-run North Korean propaganda outlets.
“North Korea is winning the Olympics –and it’s not because of sports,” said one of the headlines.
“Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns On the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight,” read another headline.
One news outlet even compared Kim’s sis, Kim Yo Jong, to first daughter Ivanka Trump (which was a real stretch by the way).
These North Korean propaganda rags will go to any length to prop up that murderous Kim regime, I thought.
Then I clicked on a couple of the headlines and, much to my shock and dismay, discovered they linked to American media outlets.
One of the biggest offenders — as you probably can guess — was CNN, proving again why the nickname “Communist News Network” is completely appropriate. (Related: Mother Jones, WashPost, NYT, CNN and Yahoo all exposed as deep state propaganda puppets in shocking FISA memo.)
The pathetic, over-the-top gushing by American media outlets over a brutal, authoritarian regime and in particular a woman whose role in her brother’s government entails “censorship and glorifying public executions,” among other things, is not just offensive, it is nauseatingly so.
As Newsbusters noted:
CNN, who has a history of climbing into bed with murderous regimes (Iraq and Saddam Hussein) to stay relevant, was one of the more notable outlets singing North Korea’s praises. On Saturday, three reporters published a disgustingly gooey puff piece about the North Korean gulag queen “stealing the show” at the Olympics.
But the commie news network certainly wasn’t alone. As I noted above, the Washington Post was the paper that actually compared Kim Yo Jong to President Donald J. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, calling her a “political princess” and adding:
Here she was, a political princess, but the North Korean “first sister” had none of the hallmarks of power and wealth that Koreans south of the divide have come to expect,” they boasted. “In looks-obsessed South Korea, many 20-something women list plastic surgery and brand-name bags as life goals.
Well, sure, when you live in a wealthy country, you do put priorities on things other than, say, scrounging for your next meal or living in fear that because you didn’t clap enthusiastically enough when the Kim the boy god walked by you’re about to be sentenced to 40 years hard labor at some craphole prison camp.
Both of which are things that actually happen in North Korea.
What was even more disgusting was the American “Pravda” press going out of its way to praise the North Korean “princess” while trashing U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and the second lady, Karen Pence, simply because they disagree with him politically and they have no tolerance for his Christianity. They’d rather there’d be no religion at all, like in North Korea, obviously.
For the socialists who dominate American media newsrooms, pretending to be part of the Communist-led global “revolution” is far easier than actually living the dream, so to speak. After all, it’s far easier — and much safer — to muse about how “cool” and “awesome” North Korea is while sipping beers in trendy D.C. bars without having to actually live in one of the most brutal, authoritarian nations on the planet.
Then again, most Alt-Left commies in American newsrooms would no doubt love to kill their political opponents with anti-aircraft guns and VX nerve gas, too — just like Dear Leader Kim!
Fortunately, not all “mainstream” media journalists are so afflicted by Trump Derangement Syndrome and hatred of Republicans that they believe colleagues’ hype about the Kims and their country.
“I can report South Koreans here in Pyeongchang are not as enthralled with Kim Yo-jong and the North Korean cheerleaders as it seems some media are back home,” NBC News’ Willie Geist tweeted. “Something about N.K. killing, starving, & imprisoning its people while threatening South Korea with nuclear annihilation.”
