You would think that living as a comical Bond villain who builds c-grade nuclear weapons and runs labor death camps would get one put into the bad guy column pretty easily. Then folks would treat that person like the living Hitler they were, and we’d respond accordingly.
You’d be wrong.
People are fascinated by Kim Jong-Un in a manner I just find weird. When his sister showed up at the Olympics the press covered her like she was some celebrity Kardashian. Never mind that all those expensive clothes she wore come at the expense of her starving people. Here was a royal figure the press could dig into with glee.
And take a gander at this Versailles picture from the BBC with this bizarre fawning line:
“North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un is to be served a Swiss potato dish at a summit dinner with the South, in an apparent attempt to remind him of school.”
Oh my, what an interesting line. It’s almost like it’s totally cool if you run an extermination camp, as long as you’re unique. Selective morality is awesome! Just ask most of today’s Western elite.
But really, I need Kim to sell my house too. Because the latest fiction is this guy is committed to giving up his nuclear weapons. Kim said so, so China says so, so does Trump, the media, whoever.
People just buy this shit like it’s true, because they really don’t seem to think things through. But, I guess, that’s to be expected when their whole lives are focused upon the most recent controversial Tweet, what Trump said to who, and who is outraged at who today.
But I’ll call this one right now, the celebrity cottage boy in Kim is not giving up his nukes. Daddy played the same game with the planet and got away with it. North Korea still has nukes. We’ve been down this road before.
If you still don’t believe me, or think just now there might be some hope of resolution, then please bask in this entirely unrelated photo of Gaddafi as he was beaten, sexually assaulted, and mutilated by a crowd before expiring. Note the guy nonchalantly smoking in the bottom right corner. In the end, tis nothing to kill a king.
Trust me, Kim’s not giving up his nukes. Kim is playing everybody for fools. Again. That anybody swallows this nonsense as reality tells me Kim’s the guy to sell my home. I could have a swarm of crocodiles living in the attic, Kim could make the sale happen.
