all over itself to heap praise upon the a leadership of a socialist
regime. But instead of a murderous socialist regime in North Korea, it was a murderous socialist regime in Germany just before WWII:
“Foreigners who know Germany only from what they have
seen during this pleasant fortnight can carry home only one impression:
it is that this is a nation happy and prosperous beyond belief, that
Hitler is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, political leaders in
the world today, and the Germans themselves are a much-maligned,
hospitable, holy, peaceful people who deserve the best the world can
give them.” New York Times, editorial August 16, 1936
Presumably this was before the nonsensical ‘Godwin’s law’
made the mentioning of Socialist monsters of the past verboten.
Curiously enough, this is primarily used by Leftists in trying to
suppress discussions of their blood soaked history. ‘Never forget’ is extremely difficult when one can ‘Never Mention’ the murderous past and present of the collectivist ideology.
Back then the New York Times had a bit more balance in it’s coverage with these headlines:
100,000 Hail Hitler; U.S. Athletes Avoid Nazi Salute To Him;
U.S. Welcome Is Mixed, Whistling Interpreted as ‘Bronx Cheer’ Is Heard as Team Gives Its Own Salute.
So why are we witness to a somewhat similar display from the national
media reporting on the representatives from another Socialist nation,
one that hails from North Korea instead of Germany?
Could it be they are merely ignorant that they are helping that
authoritarian regime and do not understand it’s true nature? A
government that starves, tortures imprisons and publicly executes it’s own people?
Was it as some have suggested in these cases, cheering for the rebel or the underdog?
Perhaps it is their way somehow going after the Trump administration?
Or could it just be that they are of the same ideological mindset?
We can dispense with giving them the benefit of the doubt. These are people of allegedly high intelligence, as is most of the Socialist-Left – Just ask them. With few exceptions – namely Buzzfeed
of all places – it is hard to believe they do not understand the role
they are playing with the woman who heads the ‘Propaganda and Agitation
Department of the Workers’ Party of Korea. Nor can they be excused of
not knowing the horrors taking place in what is essentially an open air
concentration camp. Again, these are people who fashion themselves as
the intellectual elite of the nation, the crème de la crème of the Left, standing up for the downtrodden everywhere, except North Korea.
It’s also hard to believe that the National media is really cheering
for the underdog, given that description hardly extends a Germany under
the iron fist of the Nationalsozialistische deutsche Arbeiter-Partei or the Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik. It
should also be clear that the national media has a history of this kind
of advocacy that existed long before Trump ascended the public stage.
So, the obvious conclusions is that they are of the same collectivist
mindset. No doubt if pressed, they would offer the same excuses for the
starvation, oppression and mass murder used for other collectivist
nations as ‘not really socialism.’ Or that the Socialism they advocate (were they truly honest about who they are) would be ‘done correctly’ in their case.
No, these were merely people cheering for their ideological brethren, and we’ll just leave it at that.
