North Korea returns to the Dark Ages

On the political landscape, the Vancouver Province reported that North Korea executed 80 people for watching foreign films. It was a small article buried in the paper yet the ramifications of it are absolutely astounding. It’s surreal. It’s almost unbelievable. It’s inconceivable.

The article quotes a South Korean paper which claims the 80 public executions took place in seven separate cities in North Korea and in one case a large number of civilians including children were forced to watch. Family members were sent to prison camps.

The claim is that those put to death were found guilty by the state of minor misdemeanors, including watching videos of South Korean television programmes or possessing a Bible. Possessing a Bible? Watching a TV show? The first question that comes to my mind is that really true? Did that really happen? It was reported in a South Korean paper. Was that just propaganda or did it really happen because if it did really happen, then that is an act of war.

Canada did participate in the Korean War. They helped prevent North Korean from invading South Korea and committing those kinds of atrocities in South Korea. I realize that people are very polarized about religion but imprisoning someone for their religious beliefs or lack there of is absurd. It violates civil liberty. Executing them for either is Hitler and Stalin déjà. It’s hard to conceive that the world would allow that in our modern age.

Another one of my pet peeves is their recent insanity that the Harper government is spamming the public with. They are complaining about something Justin Trudeau said that could possibly be interpreted as an indifference if not support of China’s dictatorship. I just find it insanely hypocritical that they would dare raise the issue to promote their political party. They are the ones that gave Communist China our oil rights.

Every time we fill up with gas at then pimps we are financing the military expansion of a Communist dictatorship. Anything that Justin Trudeau could have possibly said in a talk is nothing compared to the treasonous support of that same dictatorship the Harper government has displayed by giving them our oil rights. That is one decision that needs to be reversed right now. China is the ones supporting North Korea’s insane violation of human rights. Likewise china has a similar history of inconceivable violations of human rights.

We cannot in good conscience support any of that. It mocks everything we stand for. This also opens up the door to claims that China Admits to Organ Harvesting. Soemthing that ties in with BC organized crime.


  1. If it is true at least they got the balls to do it up close and personal unlike the US that dispatches drones from the comfort of their office computer terminal to kill indiscriminately both women and children for no more than the crime of being alive.

    1. The courage to murder innocent people up close and personal? That’s kind of messed up. I oppose the US’ use of drones to kill suspected terrorists without a trial. However, that is very different than returning to Stalin or Hitler and holding public executions for insane offenses in violation of civil liberty.

      I don’t think the drones are indiscriminately killing innocent women and children though. They do miss and create civilian causatives which is a real concern. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for shooting down spy drones in Canada and America. The point is we can’t let ourselves be blinded by linear stereotypes. We have to admit wrong on both sides of the political spectrum when it happens. What North Korea is doing right now is wrong and we need to be vigilant in our opposition of it.

    2. I doubt it's true ....... South Korea - were the story originated - is just trying to stir the pot.

  2. I'm not defending N Korea, but a report that references it's story to "according to newspaper article" only is likely rife with misinformation. The mainstream media demonizing a country for the sake it its masters in nothing new and has been going on since the advent of the printing press itself.

  3. That's why I said if it's true. I do think it's important to investigate to find out whether or not it is true because it is a very serious accusation and is entirely possible given China's ongoing history of human rights violations. If it turns out to be a false allegation then that also needs to be addressed.
