North Korea sentences US college student to 15 years’ hard labour

North Korea has sentenced an American college student to 15 years’ hard labour after finding him guilty of “crimes against the state”, in a ruling that is certain to increase tensions with Washington.

He’s not going t get any help from Obama. Too much white privilege.

    Too much white priilege? Too much American privilege! Obama likes North Korea.

  • Poor guy. North Korea is one of the most evil regimes on earth today. And no one does a thing about it. (They are all steadily focused on… Israel!)

    It is difficult to muster up a lot of sympathy for someone who has chosen to visit a nutbar state like North Korea. It is just plain stupid.

      Normal people, who don’t have their head up their ideological ass or aren’t suicidally naive about how respected their imagined rights are abroad, they know this.

      But I’ve seen Westerners who truly believe North Korea is a workers’ paradise, and that all the negativity is just propaganda from the capitalist white patriarchy.

      Maybe PM Shiny Pony could be talked into subsidizing a… hmmm… cultural exchange tour program, for people to take dirt cheap trips to the hermit kingdom. Either their eyes are opened, or they run afoul of their enlightened comrades and are treated to an extended in-depth cultural experience. Worth every penny.

      100% agreed. My first take on this was what the F**K is this kid doing traveling to North Korea? It’s like the ideologues who travel to muslim countries to prove it’s save then get raped and tortured….leave him there.

      His American education has totally failed him, and he is not alone by a long shot. Cultural Marxist economics professors blowing leftist sunshine up his ass. Never allowed any critical thinking, so he couldn’t figure the risks out for himself. Then he tries to steal one of Kimmy’s fucking flags for his home town church? There’s no helping these morons. If he does the full fifteen years, he will be a bony starved useless mental case when he gets back. If he makes it.

    Travel advisories. Use them.

    A: he is an American so the states ought to work for his release.
    B: he is a really dumb shit for being a tourist in North Korea and thinking he can act like aN occupy baby in a country where shit is serious.

    But at least after 15 years in jail there he’ll come out with a Ph.D. in Reality Studies.

    He went as a tourist? To North Korea?
    Tough titty!
