Media: Trump is a Dictator, But Kim Jong Un’s Sister is a DELIGHT!
If it hadn’t happened already, this was the weekend that the anti-Trump “resistance” truly jumped the shark. No one can possibly take it seriously anymore after the media – social and broadcast alike – spent a few days fawning over Kim Jong Un’s sister at the Winter Olympics. This was the moment when even the most hardheaded liberal numbskull should have realized that the media’s outrage at the Trump administration has nothing to do with the facts and everything to do with clickbaiting, ratings-driven, self-satisfied, profiteering sanctimony. This was the weekend when everyone with half a brain should have woken up to the fact that activist Twitter is a joke, CNN is a hotbed of absolute nonsense, and political discussion in America has been reduced to memes and braindead commentary.
“If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics,” wrote CNN on Saturday, “Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold. With a smile, a handshake, and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.”
That’s what they wrote about a woman whose official title is Vice Director of the Workers’ Party of Korea Propaganda and Agitation Department. Looks like she’s earned the spot, because the Western media and the gaggle of zombies on social media fell for her propaganda hook, line, and sinker. Absent from the coverage (until the intense backlash began) was any discussion of North Korea’s human rights violations, their starving population, or the nuclear ambitions that threaten global stability – to say nothing of millions of human lives. But hey, Kim Jong Un’s sister glared at Mike Pence, so that makes her ONE OF US!
It occurs to us that if Kim Jong Un were smart, he would step down as God King of North Korea and let his sister take the reins. Suddenly, any criticism of the brutal regime would be re-cast as “sexism.” The awful men of the world just can’t stand to see a strong, sassy woman in charge, you know? Look at Trump, he’s furious that this WOMAN is getting the best of him. Why shouldn’t this brave woman (and a minority, at that!) be allowed to have nuclear weapons? What, are nukes only for WHITE MEN now??! How backwards.
We’d like to pretend that this isn’t a completely plausible scenario, but let’s face it: It is. The liberal movement in the U.S. has long since decided that if a woman or a minority does it, it’s just fine (unless said woman or minority is on Team Trump, of course). And since we’ve seen the evidence firsthand, we don’t have to wonder if that extends all the way to a murderous totalitarian regime: It does.
It’s worth remembering this embarrassing episode the next time CNN assures us that Trump is literally the worst person in the world. Their moral barometer may be just a tad…off.
