Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Groups Spreading North Korean Propaganda

“Stop thinking like an American. Start thinking about humanity.”

“Stop thinking like an American. Start thinking about humanity.” That is the subversive message being promoted by two of the nation’s most active anti-Trump “resistance” organizations as tensions heighten between the Trump administration and North Korea's insane Kim Jong Un.

According to a must-read piece in the Daily Caller, Refuse Fascism, a group formulated specifically to "resist" Donald Trump and undermine his presidency, and the Workers World Party, a Marxist organization, are pushing a pro-North Korea position in its nuclear standoff with the United States:

Both groups have consistently echoed North Korean talking points that demonize America while excusing Un’s genocidal regime, and both groups have instructed their followers to distrust American media reporting that reflects negatively on North Korean leaders’ oppression of their own people.

After the United Nations’ Security Council unanimously voted on August 5 to impose further sanctions on North Korea, both Refuse Fascism and Workers World defended the North Korean regime as the victim of international imperialists.

Workers World’s magazine published an editorial titled “Korea won’t be intimidated.” The editorial claimed America — and not the North Korean regime — is the country standing in the way of peace. The last nine paragraphs of the editorial were direct quotes from North Korea’s government.

Five days later, the magazine published another editorial titled “Self-defense and the DPRK” that portrayed the U.S. as the “oppressor” of North Korea.

Three days after the UN voted on the new sanctions, Refuse Fascism — whose financial backers include left-wing financier George Soros — published an outraged statement that framed the U.S.-North Koreas standoff as “the largest military power in the world bullying a small, isolated country and terrorizing the people of that entire region.”

In July, Refuse Fascism issued a statement accusing the U.S. of using a “playbook of demonization” against Kim Jong Un. The statement urged Americans to put aside their country’s and “act in the interests of humanity instead.”

“Stop thinking like an American,” the statement said. “Start thinking about humanity.”
