Last month the int'l media reported that the U.K. broadcaster Channel 4 has greenlit North Korean political thriller “Opposite Number.” The 10-part drama series has been penned by British playwright and screenwriter Matt Charman, who wrote the original script for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Cold War movie. The Channel 4 series kicks off with a covert mission to North Korea by a British nuclear scientist, who is then taken prisoner. This triggers an international crisis as he could be forced to help North Korea weaponize its nuclear technology...(more you can read here)
Well, it took a while for the N. Korean "authorities" to find out that there's another conspiracy, created just to harm DPRK's dignity. But now - as you can imagine - they're not amused, not at all!
Therefore the National Defence Commission of the DPRK issued y'day the following statement(via KCNA): Recently the British 4th TV channel producers openly made public a plan for producing and airing a serial TV drama-style movie malignantly slandering the DPRK. The movie is nothing but a conspiratorial charade painting a wrong picture of the DPRK's reality... etc. etc. etc.
But here comes the more interesting part of the statement: The British authorities should not forget even a moment the lesson drawn from the incident in which that it was sentenced to permanent death because of "poems of evil" which groundlessly slandered a country in the Mideast in the past. Reckless anti-DPRK hysteria would only bring disgrace and self-destruction...
I searched the internet for "poems of evil", but without no useful result! But I'm guessing, about what they're talking: In 1988 S. Rushdie's novel "The Satanic Verses" was published in the U.S. and Europe. His novel created a massive outcry in the conservative Islamic world and finally it resulted in a Fatwa calling on all Muslims to kill Rushdie and his publishers...
Well, I've no idea what the "National Defence Commission of the DPRK" want to say! An nuclear attack against UK? Possibly impossible(^^)!! But why not a "Korean Style FATWA"(^^) against UK/Channel 4/Matt Charman...
Anyway, sooner or later we'll get an answer...
Two days ago(8.22) KCNA proved - once again - that there is indeed a close relationship/collaboration between the ruling "Korean Workers Party" with fascist/neo-Nazi organizations...
Under the headline "DPRK's Important Days Marked in Brazil, Germany" KCNA "reported" the following:
There took place a book exhibition and round-table talks in Brazil and a meeting in Germany on Aug. 13 and 14. They marked the Day of Songun in the DPRK and the 69th anniversary of Korea's liberation...
The chairman of the Anti-Imperialist Forum of Germany said in a speech: The new history of Korea has begun since Kim Il Sung liberated the country 69 years ago. The DPRK has won victories in the confrontation with the U.S. because HE Kim Jong Il, faithful successor to the idea and cause of Kim Il Sung, built powerful capability for self-defence with his Songun revolutionary leadership. Kim Jong Un is further developing the DPRK into an invincible military power. It greatly encourages the progressive people in their struggle against imperialism. A congratulatory message to Kim Jong Un was adopted at the event in Germany.
Already one month earlier the so-called "Anti-Imperialist Forum"/in German: "Antiimperialistische Plattform"(*) recieved the following letter of appreciation signed by the N. Korean(aka DPRK) ambassador in Berlin/Germany:
* The "Antiimperialistische Plattform" is the successor organization of the former "Combat League of German Socialists", a hardcore neo-Nazi organization... And its main aim is - for the time being - the creation of a global "Querfront".
Two days ago Yonhap News reported the following: North Korea's reserve forces took a direct swipe Tuesday at South Korea's defense minister... In a statement filled with unspeakable obscenities, the North's Worker-Peasant Red Guards accused Han Min-koo("Han" by KCNA/Rodong Shinmun) of having behaved "like a rabid dog" since taking office a month ago...
Indeed the statement is really hard stuff! While it was already published two days ago by KCNA, yesterday's Rodong Shinmun used it as one of its "main headlines"... Here you'll get the "undisputed highlights"(^^):
PS: I'm not a friend of the current S. Korean gov't...(^^)
"World No Tobacco Day"(WNTD) is observed around the world every year on May 31...(Wikipedia) But while the date in most of the countries passed almost unnoticed, in North Korea at least the state media(KCTV/RodongShinmun) celebrated WNTD. And as you can see the new "Dear Leader", as always, is leading by example...
The almost daily inhuman (sexist, homophobic, racist)agitation in the North Korean media(esp. KCNA and Rodong Shinmun) proves that the ruling "Juche Idea"("Kimilsungism/Kimjongilism") has nothing to do with socialism/communism, instead NK/the ruling "Workers Party" uses NAZI-style propaganda like "Der Stuermer"!
N. Korean "words of endearment"(via KCNA/Rodong Shinmun) for Park Geun-hye: "Dirty Comfort Woman for the U.S.", "Despicable Prostitute", "Old Prostitute", "Capricious Whore", "Political Whore", "Dirty Political Harlot", "The Bitch", "The Witch"...
"All Koreans are spitting on her[Park Geun-hye/PGH] as she is resorting to whorish and disgusting political prostitution only after leaving her soul or chastity violated at such old age of over 60"(KCNA, 5.02)
"What she did this time reminds one of a disgusting old prostitute raising even her skirt, not feeling any shame to bring a stranger into her bedroom. It is a shame and disgrace of the Korean nation that there is such a pro-U.S. indecent philistine and vile prostitute serving the U.S. as Park Geun Hye"(KCNA, 5.03)
KCNA(5.02) about Obama: Park Geun-hye's "American master reminiscent of a wicked black monkey"
PS. Of course the policy of the PGH administration is to criticize(resp. must be confronted by people's resistance) and it's also well-known that Obama is NOT a "angel of peace"...
Today's Yonhap News reported the following: North Korea again denounced as fabrication a critical report by the United Nations on human rights violations in the communist country, calling it a U.S.-led attempt to undermine its political system, the state-run media said Tuesday. Pyongyang's dismissal of the report by the U.N. commission of inquiry (COI) came days after Michael Kirby, head of the three-member commission, once again called on the U.N. Security Council to refer the case to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
But Yonhap forgot to mention why M. Kirby, according to KCNA, is not "entitled" even to talk about the "nonexistent 'human rights issue of the DPRK'"... Because "Kirby... is a disgusting old lecher with a 40-odd-year-long career of homosexuality. He is now over seventy, but he is still anxious to get married to his homosexual partner"!!! (Ugh, yuck!)
And finally KCNA added: "This practice can never be found in the DPRK boasting of the sound mentality and good morals, and homosexuality has become a target of public criticism even in Western countries, too..."
Indeed, KCNA is right: Scores of Christian fundamentalists, Islamist radicals, far-right extremists(*) and neo-Nazis(**)... are fighting against homosexuality(etc.), to defend "sound mentality and good morals"!!
* Two days(4.20) ago KCNA (proudly)reported the following:
Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, received a message of greeting from V. V. Zhirinovsky, chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia... The message said: Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, I extend congratulations to you and, through you, to all the Korean people on the occasion of the Day of the Sun, the national holiday of the DPRK.This holiday goes with the august name of Generalissimo Kim Il Sung who was an outstanding statesman of the DPRK. He bequeathed the face-lifted country with developed economy and full of confidence of bright futureOn this occasion I wish you and all the citizens of the DPRK successes in all creative fields for achieving happiness and prosperity of the country, strengthening peace and security on the Korean peninsula and bringing happiness and well-being to every family in the DPRK.
** 4.10: A group of well-known/infamous neo-nazis followed an inviation by NK's embassy in Berlin/Germany to celebrate the "Day of Sun"... (for more info please check out AiP zum Geburtstag Kim Il Sungs in der Botschaft der DVRK empfangen)
While the int'l media has been reporting from the very beginning about the "Sewol" disaster, incl. the (failed)rescue operations, in North Korea it took three days until it was mentioned. Two days ago(4.19) Rodong Shinmun published a short notice(see below) about the horrible tragedy. And while people from around the world are expressing their sympathy with the victims and their relatives... From NK: not a bit of compassion, not to mention an official message of condolence!
Today's DailyNK reported the following: North Korea has criticized the effectiveness of the official South Korean response to the sinking of the "Sewol," the passenger ferry that went down last week off the southwest coast of the Korean Peninsula en route from Incheon to Jeju Island with the loss of approximately 300 lives.
Chosun Central Television reported on the 19th that “rescue efforts are so slow that the hearts of the [ferry victims’] families are breaking.”
Quoting South Korean broadcaster MBC, the report further claimed, “South Chosun’s MBC news said that these kinds of large-scale disasters have been going on for decades, and that the families of those missing have been having sleepless nights. The authorities must recognize the depths of their sadness and rage."
Propaganda outlet Uriminzokkiri similarly reported that many in South Korea are unhappy with the “incompetent response of the South Chosun authorities” to the ferry sinking, telling of “strong criticism from every corner of South Chosun society that the government is not making any progress in rescuing [the victims].”
“All classes in South Chosun claim the responsibility for this incident lies fully on the incompetence of the current government. They are calling for the urgent passage of laws on ocean safety, including disaster information gathering, prompt response measures, strong command and strengthened supervisory systems…people are saying if [the government]listened then accidents like this wouldn't happen," the piece concluded.
Rodong Sinmun published a similarly critical piece on page 5 of its Saturday edition, declaring, "We live in a world where we cannot even send our children on a mathematics field trip."
North Korea's criticism is a broadly accurate reflection of widespread anger and deep sadness felt in South Korean society at the nature of the tragedy and speed of the rescue effort that followed it.
"A spokesman for the National Defence Commission of the DPRK released a statement on April 12 clarifying its views and principled stand as regards the fact that the south Korean authorities are talking nonsense that they 'expect' positive response from the DPRK to the 'Dresden Declaration,' which does not deserve even a passing notice..."
