George Galloway, Andrew Murray and Dennis Rodman notwithstanding, the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea is, as I observed some years ago, the most Nazi-like, openly racist state on the face of the earth.
More evidence of the North Korean obsession with racial purity emerged in a recent screed from the regime’s Korean Central News Agency.
In terms that might draw assent from Ted Nugent, the KCNA described President Obama as a “crossbreed with unclear blood.”
(Texas attorney general Greg Abbott, the Republican candidate for governor, was willing to overlook Nugent’s description of Obama as a “subhuman mongrel” when the rocker/rightwing loony joined him on the campaign trail– which puts him on about the same moral plane as Galloway, Murray and Rodman.)
The Washington Post quoted the North Korean news agency as saying Obama “still has the figure of monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years.”
“It would be perfect for Obama to live with a group of monkeys in the world’s largest African natural zoo and lick the bread crumbs thrown by spectators.”
…Josh Stanton, who blogs regularly about the North’s viciousness and rights violations, uncovered the Korean-only piece, as well as a separate, milder article that was translated into English and in which Obama was called a “wicked black monkey.”
Some academics — most notably B.R. Myers — argue that North Koreans fundamentally have a “race-based” worldview, showing more similarity to fascist Japan during World War II than Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union. Myers condenses North Korean’s state orthodoxy into a sentence: “The Korean people are too pure blooded, and therefore too virtuous, to survive in this evil world without a great parental leader.”
…North Korea still goes to alarming lengths to maintain its racial purity. North Korean women often cross into China looking for work or an escape; if those women are impregnated and forcibly repatriated to the North, they are subject to either forced abortions or infanticide.
The United Nations said in a recent human rights report that this practice points “to an underlying belief in a ‘pure Korean race’ in the DPRK to which mixed race children (of ethnic Koreans) are considered a contamination of its ‘pureness.’ ”…
