Skip to comments.Jimmy Carter, in N. Korea, Gives Kowtow Subservient Bow to N. Korean Hosts (Footage)

These people disgust me. Absolutely disgust me.
President or Former President notwithstanding, the United States of America not only publicly bowing in Asian subservience (their culture) earlier this afternoon to a much less powerful nation, but one with one of the worst human rights records on the face of the earth, complete with concentration camps as we speak.
Carter arrived today. And did the deed immediately upon arriving at the airport in Pyongyang, North Korea, to a DPRK official.
Go to URL here: LINK and hit the arrow to stream.
Do these naive morons honestly believe we can gain the friendship with these mass murderers who threaten South Korea, Japan, and our hundreds of thousands of troops in them--with such abject, pathetic acts of sychophancy? Should stream on most computers, but up for a limited time....
The Karter Kowtow comes at approximately :11 seconds.
Followed by that, the former Norwegian premier (Socialist) also is just tickled RED at the Communist salute by a poor little brainwashed North Korean Young Pioneer boy given to her at :25 seconds.
In both of these, the North Koreans know they have the UPPER HAND and have made the American and Europeans crawl to them in subservience, half way around the world!
Obama and Madeline Albright would respectively be very proud. Donald Trump or somebody in the GOP race for President, or Rush Limbaugh/Glen Beck/Mark Levin/Michael Savage should see this and seize upon it, ASAP
Did Jimmy ever meet a dictator he didn’t like?
Hope the old guy brought plenty of knee pads.
And a ONE WAY TICKET.
Those tunnels the DPRK are building as execution chambers for the hundreds of thousands in the gulag population- is there room for Jimmuh?
Or will he get his gulag time in hell
Just getting a former US president to go to NK is a HUGE win for chia head and his supporters.
For Carter to bow to them is a joke.
That would be Kowtow, Kowtown souds like Ft. Worth. But Carter giving NoKs a Ft. Worth sounds like something he’d do. And we might have just giving Ft. Worth a whole new meaning.
Notice the NK scum doesn’t bow back.
Are you absolutely sure this is N. Korea? I can’t read Japanese.
They are smiling at Carter on the outside and laughing at him on the inside.
Christopher Hitchens described North Korea as a start-up where they misunderstood the book 1984 to be a `good government’ instruction manual, instead of a warning.
They can afford to buy invasion hovercraft, but can’t feed their own people. Carter has no shame. He really is despicable.
Yeah, the Moderator will fix that in no time.
I wonder if Hassenpfeffer will be on the menu for the Dinner in his honor?
With any luck he will stay over there with HIS PEOPLE! ! ! !
Jimmah can’t leave this earth too soon for me. Since he was born in 1924, maybe there’s hope. The only good thing Carter ever did was bring us Ronald Reagan. Hopefully his Mini Me, Obama, will give us a Reagan, but in surveying the likely candidates he or she hasn’t surfaced yet.
What would they charge to keep him there?
No sadder fool than an old fool and he’s all that.
This carries a big, profound meaning in Asian protocol and society. Ond man is clearly senior, and one man is clearly junior, a subservient, in an Asian Vertical Sense.
Guess which county licks the boots of the other country in this PR fiasco today in Pyongyang.
Won’t run on my computer :-(
Maybe one of our geekier Freepers can grab a screen capture of the bow and post it for us? TomGuy, maybe?
There must be something in the genetic makeup of leftist Dems that causes them to bow to tyrants.
The only bow I noticed was Carter to the kid to acknowledge receipt of the bouquet.
That scene is the pic in post #1.
Thank you for the clarification. At least from the angle of that photo, it might appear that Jimmah is just bending a little in order to receive the bouquet from the much smaller child. I wouldn’t be surprised if he bowed to someone, anyone, in N. Korea or elsewhere, but this photo doesn’t really show it.
While I despise Jimmy Carter, in the Korea's a bow is the normal greeting. No different than a hand shake. It is not the sign of subservience as in other cultures. I don't know if Jimmy knows that or not.
“While I despise Jimmy Carter, in the Korea’s a bow is the normal greeting. No different than a hand shake.”
I lived in Korea for several years and have family who are Korean, I know their culture.
For any leader to bow to subordinates is shameful. For a world leader to bow to someone much weaker is a sign of complete and utter disgrace.
Koreans who like America are saying “WTH is he doing!” For those who do not like America it is a victory.
How bows to the first man greeting him, then again to the child.
Many, many years ago, all of Carter’s brains went to his peanuts.
Thanks for the post AIT!
Oh and if you look really fast, Carter actually did 2 little bows to the boy that brought him the wedding bouquet.
Thanks for the screencaps, Syncro. That top picture shows exactly what I was looking for (since I can’t watch the video myself). Yep...that is most definitely a bow. Good grief, could he and his ideological twin, Obowma, be anymore disgusting and disgraceful?
It's absolutely disgraceful
Carter should have hung it up long ago...he consistantly makes matters worse. He needs to stay out of politics entirely.
Their souls are tainted and their consciences seared by the spirit of hate and death.
Obama, Carter, ClintonX2, Holder, R. Emanuel etc etc.
They are pawns of the devil.
I am hereby pledging to deliver to the port of your choice one each pallet of rice if you keep Jimmy Carter within the borders of your country. The delivery will be made within seven days of your announcement that Mr. Carter will be enjoying your hospitality indefinitely.
And, a side note here, I dont know who "Virgil Bierschwale" is, but appears to be a bit dishonest. He runs a blog and picked this FR thread story up (fine), but did not credit Free Republic at all and passed off the entire translation above, the text/explanation, links, everything, as to his own work, "by Virgil Bierschwale" (sic).
Shame this is even within the Conservative ranks. (though I dont mind the story going viral).....Some fellow named "Randy's Right" did this is well.
Now HOW in the world would these guys mine this stuff exclusively in the Japanese langugage, only.
Evryone reads FreeRepublic and unprincipled ones steal from this site.
I saw what you were talking about with a little googling.
That’s pretty whack, giving himself the byline to something he copied line for line and link for link.
I don’t think Bierschwale is a much of a conservative, he’s a huff and puffer over at the leftist site Huff post.
At least he hasn’t posted it at his facebook page yet...heh
Keep up the good work, I always like to read your posts.
This was an EXCELLENT find.
Thanks for the feedback, Much appreciated!
So, would this be a case of Obama taking after Carter, or Carter taking after Obama?
