The news media can't stop accusing President Donald Trump of dictatorial tendencies and comparing him to Hitler and Mussolini, but they fell all over themselves praising the real-world dictator of North Korea, monster Kim Jong Un, and his advisor sister at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
You can't buy the kind of propaganda handed to North Korea on a silver platter by the mainstream media this weekend at the Olympics being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Here is a sampling, courtesy of Fox News, of headlines that appeared on smitten leftist outlets such as CNN and ABC:
“Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the winter Olympics”
“The ‘Ivanka Trump of North Korea’ captivates people in the South at the Olympics”
“North Korea’s cheerleaders steal spotlight at Winter Games with synchronized chants”
The cheerleader article referred to the 200+-person cheer squad which won over the press for dancing in perfect unison, wearing matching outfits, and waving flags in support of their team. No one in the media bothered to note that the starving families of the cheerleaders likely would be executed if the cheerleaders displayed anything less than ecstatically energetic support for the international cameras.
Much of the media attention was fixated on Kim Yo Jong, Kim Jong Un's younger sister and reportedly his most trusted adviser, which should tell you everything you need to know about her. And yet the media treated her with a fawning respect they never show to our own First Lady Melania Trump, who bears the media's disgusting slanders and contempt with the dignity of a saint. Some even compared Kim Yo Jong, inexplicably, to Ivanka Trump. CNN drooled that her “warm message” has apparently “struck a chord with the public.”
Too bad CNN didn't get reaction to that "warm message" from the parents of Otto Warmbier, an American citizen recently tortured and killed by the Kim regime. Trump had given Kim the middle finger by inviting Warmbier's parents to his recent State of the Union address and publicly recognizing them to the accompaniment of a standing ovation from everyone in attendance, except the grumpy, totalitarian-loving Democrats.
Media outlets didn't mention that Kim Yo Jong's title is Vice Director of the Workers’ Party of Korea Propaganda and Agitation Department. Hel-lo -- "Propaganda and Agitation Department." North Korea doesn't even bother to give it a friendlier, Orwellian euphemism like "Publicity Outreach Department" or "CNN."
The American news media are so consumed by hatred of their mortal foe Donald Trump that they turn a blind eye to the evil lunatic behind quite possibly the world's most brutal regime, a man who has threatened to rain nuclear weapons down on America, and instead hype its presence at the Olympics as a diplomatic success. The left-dominated media would rather chastise Trump for standing up to Kim, because the left's instinct is Blame America First, and because the left refuses to recognize totalitarian evil.
