    North Korea bans sarcasm because Kim Jong-un fears people only agree with him ‘ironically’


    North Korea has forbidden people from making sarcastic comments about Kim Jong-un or his totalitarian regime in their everyday conversations.

    Even indirect criticism of the authoritarian government has been banned, Asian media reported.

    Residents were warned against criticising the state in a series of mass meetings held by functionaries across the country.


    “One state security official personally organised a meeting to alert local residents to potential ‘hostile actions’ by internal rebellious elements,” a source in Jagang Province told Radio Free Asia’s Korean Service
    .

    “The main point of the lecture was ‘Keep your mouths shut.’”


    The caution was also issued in neighbouring Yangang Province, sources revealed.

    Officials told people that sarcastic expressions such as “This is all America’s fault” would constitute unacceptable criticism of the regime.


    “This habit of the central authorities of blaming the wrong country when a problem’s cause obviously lies elsewhere has led citizens to mock the party,” an anonymous source said.

    Gotta love Kim Jong. He kills and imprisons so many of his own people.

    Statistics say 99% of Un's people like him. Based on that - I'd say Trump gives him a hearty thumbs-up.

    I had the pleasure of spending time with some Korean kids this summer.

    They regaled me with tales of how fukkin bad both N and S Korea are now.

    How can I live if I cannot snark?

    :c

    This is the fake story, Mike. It's very, very easy to make up stuff about the DPRK, because they have no way to counter it. Don't get me wrong, things are not good there, but this story is just blatantly false.

    I don't know, that guy seems kind of cool to me. We need a cool guy like Kim or Putin to rule us like a bad ass emperor.
