It has been pretty alarming watching the media fawn all over Kim Jong Un’s sister at the Winter Olympics. It’s really obvious that they admire some of these tyrannical dictators. Throughout history, Democrats have sided with oppressive dictators and pushed back against freedom and capitalism.
Tucker Carlson had one of these liberals on his program on Monday night and it was absolutely ridiculous.
The woman, a communist named Deirdre Griswold, had no idea what she was talking about from start to finish and you could tell Tucker Carlson couldn’t believe some of the things she was saying about North Korea.
From The Daily Caller:
The Daily Caller co-founder asked, “Does it bother you at all, does it make you rethink your defense of North Korea when you see its’ population starving and its’ leader dying of obesity?”
“The people there are not starving…”
“Well they just had a famine 15 years ago,” Tucker said.
“They had a famine some years ago. You know, this is a country that was left in ashes, in ashes…”
“Oh it’s our fault?” Tucker asked. He also asked why South Korea is so built up now when it was left in a similar situation after the Korean War, a question she did not respond to.
Here’s the interview. You won’t regret watching it.
Yikes. Might be time to open up a history book ma’am. You’re a little off about a couple things.
Hard to believe someone actually believes that stuff.
She didn’t answer the question about whether she’d live in North Korea because she knows she’d never live there. In her heart of hearts she has to know how bad it is. Right?
Here’s a little more on how the media has been treating North Korea.
News outlets have come under fire for their coverage of North Korea at the Winter Olympics, with critics chiding reporters for describing the oppressive Kim Jong Un government in uncritical and “fawning” terms.
CNN faced an avalanche of criticism over the weekend for a story that said Kim Yo Jong, the sister of the North’s leader and a figurehead of the country’s delegation in Pyeongchang, South Korea, was “stealing the show at the Winter Olympics.”
“That kind of credulous tone for someone who’s not just a sister but an official from the world’s perhaps most brutal, repressive regime is just embarrassing,” Howard Kurtz, a Fox News media analyst, said on Monday. “And CNN was not alone in that.”
The piece was one of several news stories on the North Korean delegation to arouse anger in readers and commentators, with many pointing out the glowing descriptions of a government that has inflamed global tensions by threatening nuclear war and been condemned by international watchdogs for human rights violations.
If liberals love North Korea so much they should move there.
Let us know how that goes. Probably not going to be a fun time.
Liberals hate Trump but seem perfectly fine with Kim Jong.
Mind boggling ignorance.
