WH Condemns NK’s Racist Remarks About Obama

From the Washington Post:

U.S. criticizes racist North Korean screed against Obama

By Chico Harlan and Zachary A. Goldfarb | May 8, 2014

The White House on Thursday sharply condemned a lengthy and racist North Korean screed against President Obama, calling the rhetoric from Pyongyang “particularly ugly and disrespectful.” The rebuke came in response to a recently published diatribe by North Korea calling Obama a “clown,” a “dirty fellow” and somebody who “does not even have the basic appearances of a human being.”

Another part of the tirade declared, “It would be perfect for Obama to live with a group of monkeys in the world’s largest African natural zoo and lick the breadcrumbs thrown by spectators.” The White House — which often ignores the rhetorical excesses of the North Korean regime — suggested that the new comments from the Korean Central News Agency were especially repugnant.

And never mind that the North Korean state-controlled media says even crazier things on a regular basis than our own state-controlled media does. This is serious. This is racism. And it is against Obama.

All of which is far more concerning than, say, their usual threats to blow Los Angeles off the face of the map.

“While the North Korean Government-controlled media are distinguished by their histrionics, these comments are particularly ugly and disrespectful,” Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, said in a statement.

Ms. Hayden replaced Tommy Vietor as the spokesman for the NSC. Otherwise, this condemnation would have begun: "Dude, while the North Korean…"

Propriety has never been a part of North Korean rhetoric, but rarely has Pyongyang so ferociously — and personally — attacked a U.S. leader, in this case pulling language right out of the American 1850s.

Oh, yeah. They got this from America. And never mind that North Koreans are some of the most racist people on the planet. They mock everyone who isn’t Korean.

The attack seems unabashed, except for one thing: Unlike most articles published by the North’s state-run news agency, this one wasn’t translated into English.  “He is a crossbreed with unclear blood,” the North says. And later: Obama “still has the figure of a monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years.”

The diatribe, published May 2, almost escaped foreign attention. But Joshua 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.”

The Korean-only piece (headlined “Divine retribution for the juvenile delinquent Obama!”) featured four lengthy passages, each attributed to a regular citizen. In the North, quotations of citizens are state-sanctioned and often spoon-fed by the government’s propaganda department, analysts say…

Still, these comments about Obama are far more racist than anything Donald Sterling’s is alleged to have said. I hope the UN decides to ban the North Korean leadership for life, and they take the country away from them.

    Hey, Obama admin, the alarm clock is buzzing its head off and you’re still snoozing.

    The world HATES the United States. Has hated it, will continue hating it and even if you’re successful in dragging it down to a socialist cesspool, the world will still hate it.

    The centuries of manufactured beliefs, not too dissimilar as to why arabs hate Jews, aimed at the hatred of US about “imperialism”, “theft”, etc. all from the weak-minded idiots who find such attitudes useful to foment more anger and distrust…are the same attitudes which you hold.

    Yup, Little Kimmy and you are cut of the same cloth.

    HOW—ABOUT—THAT?

    I could easily have heard those words from Hitlery, Reid, Chuck U Schumer, with just some minor substitution with the word “republican” in place of your own name.

    Remember when the “police acted stupidly”?

    How about when you called someone a “jackass”?

    And there are many, many more where you just couldn’t button your lip and keep your personal hatred of people-who-didn’t-think-like-you at bay.

    This is why the left cannot run the world. It would be a world of pure hatred pitted against pure hatred. Stalin vs. Hitler ring a bell? And even when they team up, they still hate one-another.

    I have been saying this for years; that it’s amazing the alliances inside the democrat party. One needs little to imagine what they say about each other, let alone about republicans. It’s just that they are more careful about that.

    But commies are deeply invested in hatred. Is this you are first hearing of it? You mean, it’s a surprise? Maybe Kimmy is trying to make points with the “evil right-wingers” well, I have news for him, I applaud his right to say what he wants (freedom of speech and all that) and partly even agree with him. But he is not my ally. He is my enemy.

    But Obama, you’re my enemy too. You are a domestic enemy of the Constitution of the United States and I took an oath to defend it against schmucks like you. So….if I have to fight little fat Kimmy, I have to fight you and your bread-crumb gathering self too boot.

    Hope it doesn’t come to that but I will if I must.

    Sorry you’re all butt-hurt by the little commie dictator who you so secretly admired, wishing you could rule a nation the way he does….but hey….ya gotta take the good with the bad, right? Or, in your case, spin the bad down the rabbit-hole.

    But nothing, NOTHING is gonna make the rest of the globe actually like the United States. Nothing. Not a world apology tour, not throwing money at them, not bowing to them or even kissing their feet.

    N-O-T-H-I-N-G

    (And they like you even less)
