Is anybody else out there also fascinated by the many videos of North Koreans weeping uncontrollably over the death of Kim Jong-il? I can't get enough of watching them. They are both quite fascinating and unintentionally HILARIOUS due to the over the top grieving.
Rush Limbaugh today aptly noted that these mourners look quite well fed, which in a nation where the vast majority are starving, means they are the One Percenters of North Korea aka ruling party members.
So how real is the grief? Well, they HAVE to show over the top grief or be tossed out of the party which means they starve since they would get the same paltry rations as the the masses. Having just come back from a Chinese Seafood Buffet where I slurped down a couple of dozen oysters I can surely sympathize with them. Threaten me with a cutoff of my buffet chow, and I would also be on the ground sobbing my heart out.
One of my favorite North Koreans "mourning" videos is this one: North Koreans weeping hysterically over the death of Kim Jong-il. I really like at the 1 minute mark where the North Korean guy is on all fours pounding the pavement while sobbing hysterically. Another highlight is at about 1:20 where another N. Korean is replicating the performance of the first North Korean.
Oddly enough, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the new feudal ruler, Kim Jong-umph, hasn't shed a tear for Dear Old Daddy. More than likely he is wondering how he can parlay his new position as dictator of North Korea into either a visit to Disney World or the Las Vegas Strip.
This will be the Democrats’ reaction on November 6, 2012, when Dear Reader is voted out of office.
Make it look good folks. Failure to do so may be fatal.
O’Reilly pointed out last night that there were ZERO tears in the eyes of those “weeping greviously.” He ran a bunch of video, and sure enough, much moaning and groaning and wiping of the eyes, but no tears.
Isn’t the crying weird. Well, maybe I mean the sound these people are making. Almost like horror movie sounds.
That is the world’s largest prison and the warden just died. Of course they’re crying, they know better than to show no emotion. Go to South Korea and do the Panmunjom tour. You can actually stand in North Korea. The soldiers in the North are like hobbits, due to malnutrition, versus the South where everyone has enough and more. It’s only a matter of time before the DPRK is taken over by the ROK and/or China.
He never looked better to me than he does right now.
Looks cold in N Korea...I can see their breath!
Wow...The video reminds me of planet of the apes or some bizarre sicko Hollywood movie.
The guy using the flag to blow is nose is a hoot.
It’s well known that if they don’t show any grief they’ll be beaten up and then executed.
If they don’t show ENOUGH grief they can get beaten up at worst, and have a bunch of penalties and sanctions placed on them and their families.
One interesting thing, you can be laughing hysterically but make it seem like you are mourning with just a few additional facial expressions. In my case, I would be LMAO but pass it off as mourning. In fact, I would be laughing so much that I would shed REAL tears. Hey, if Kim Jong-umph spotted me, I would probably be rewarded with a top level party position for the “grief” that I displayed.
It’s all fake.
They are basically forced to do this crap all over the country. Factories, schools and every other place will officially record who did and didn’t (probably none) participate.
Somebody is always watching you.
Didn’t even think of that. When I laugh hysterically, I do shed tears and my back starts to hurt.
Most of these videos come from Pyongyang, where only the most trusted are allowed to live. I bet they want to stay too.
KCNA is also keeping official tallies of the mourning, reporting that over 5 million in Pyongyang have carried out this duty.... its population is about 3.2 million.
Those not crying will be beaten to tears and forced to eat a diet of rat cakes for 3 months.
