Congratulations, North Korea, you made it out of the World Cup's group stages!

Confused? You should be.

North Korea, of course, didn't even participate in the World Cup.

That didn't stop a video from being created showing celebratory images of North Korean footballers and scenes from Brazil.

So North Korea didn't even send a team to the World Cup but they've defeated Japan 7-0, the United States 4-0 and China 2-0. Do they REALLY think anybody buys this nonsense?

Was Dear Leader the only one on the team?

It’s meant for NK consumption, and yes, having no other means of verification, most North Koreans will believe it.

Loinvoters in the US suffer from the same reliance on leftist media.

Why not? The world accepts, endorses, pays for, global warming and demands allegiance and sacrifice to it’s alter. So why not?

Yes, he was. Still, he has never faced a soccer team manned by one Mike Ditka!

They enjoy making fools of their citizens. Not much difference between North Korean communists and our Democrat party and RINO establishment.

It’s so over the top — it’s almost as if somebody in their media is hoping the people will finally catch on, and begin doubting.

Shame on them, but I’ve changed my view of this rot, more and more.

Now I simply think to myself, “We’re not as bad —YET.”

The propaganda in Nork is truly one for the ages. My guess is that many in North Korea believe winning the World Cup is true. The others? Well...they pretend that they believe it is true.

Yup, the NORKs think ‘Nineteen-eightfour’ is a ‘good government’ instruction manual.
Something like our socialists and their MSM:
“Comrades! Attention comrades! Deportation continues and 3-4 billion new dollars to process deportees was delivered to Dear Leader by smiling congrissars leading smiling, happy workers streaming from factories and offices joyfully singing praises to Big Bro’ .... blah blah blah”

“Video Depicts North Korea Triumphing at the Group Stages of the World Cup”

Sure, but that’s only because President Obama couldn’t play because he was busy guarding our border with Mexico.

North Korea lying to its people about winning the World Cup isn’t much different than the President of the US telling us we can keep our doctors and health care plans or creating a fantasy of some mob enraged by an Internet video causing the death of four Americans. Kim Jung-un ‘s fantasy life is only a little less credible than what we know about Obama’s past. Much of the US media slavishly reports what they are told by the White House little different than the state controlled media in North Korea.

I agree that the distinctions between North Korea’s media dominance/blackout and our own are quickly disappearing. All doubts were removed when the incompetent token, presiding over the financial disasters that marked his first term, was re-elected; the massive propaganda effort, coupled with verified voter fraud and the use of the IRS to silence enemies, was over the top.

We are North Korea’s citizens that just aren’t being lined up and shot yet.
