North Korea are taking their propaganda against the west quite intense. More recently North Korea’s state owned news claimed that, ” Obama is a monkey”.
Looks like the top people in North Korea’s government were quite pissed-off and possibly threatened by the recent visit of U.S. President Barack Obama to South Korea.
The Pyongyang’s Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) were quite liberal in expressing their hatred towards President Obama. They even called the President a “wicked black monkey”.
“You can also tell this by his appearance and behavior, and while it may be because he is a crossbreed, one cannot help thinking the more one sees him that he has escaped from a monkey’s body,” it stated.
The written diatribe lists Obama as a monkey four times, as well as calling him a “clown”, “dirty fellow” and somebody who “does not even have the basic appearance of a human being”; it geared towards the United States as “paper tiger” – its strength as a nation being largely a “myth.”
“It would be better for him to live with other monkeys at a wild animal park in Africa … and licking bread crumbs thrown by onlookers,” wrote steel worker Kang Hyok at Chollima Steel Complex, who was one of the writers of the article.
Another author, a military officer named Han Jin-Sung, wrote with more madness:
“These Yankees have no idea who they are dealing with, and we will teach them the true taste of fire and war. Our nuclear strikes of justice and our powerful baptism by fire will decimate America, that devil’s den, without a trace — that is our resolution.”
On the other hand the White House did get to react to this:
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on Thursday that the North Korean dispatch was “offensive and ridiculous and absurd.”
“I don’t know how many words I can use up here to describe the rhetoric … It’s disgusting,” Harf told reporters at the Foreign Press Center in Washington.
What do you think about this petty war of words between nations? Freedom of Speech I would say.
