Dennis Rodman, companions have awesome time with leader of starving totalitarian gulag-state

posted at 6:41 pm on February 28, 2013 by Allahpundit

For once, the term “useful idiot” seems unequal to the task. Nothing I can say here can outdo the AP’s account of the trip, so hug your children, take a deep breath, and step forward into the void. Quote:

“The crowd was really engaged, laughed at all of the Globetrotters antics, and actually got super loud towards the end as the score got close,” said [VICE Media correspondent Ryan] Duffy, who suited up for the game in a blue uniform emblazoned with “United States of America. “Most fun I’ve had in a while.”

“They bonded during the game,” [VICE founder Shane] Smith said [of Kim and Rodman] by telephone from New York after speaking to the crew. “They were both enjoying the crazy shots, and the Harlem Globetrotters were putting on quite a show.”…

After the game, Rodman addressed Kim in a speech before a crowd of tens of thousands of North Koreans, telling him, “You have a friend for life,” Detrick said…

“Dinner was an epic feast. Felt like about 10 courses in total,” Duffy said in an email to AP. “I’d say the winners were the smoked turkey and sushi, though we had the Pyongyang cold noodles earlier in the trip and that’s been the runaway favorite so far.”

VICE posted photos of Kim and Rodman yukking it up at the game but, alas, no photos of the “epic feast.” If you’re curious about how epic North Korean dining habits can get, go see what Gawker has up. Mind you, we’re two weeks out from a North Korean nuclear test that was designed explicitly to threaten America; according to one former U.S. military commander in South Korea, the North might have an ICBM capable of delivering a nuclear payload to the continental U.S. as soon as five years from now.

Meanwhile, the country’s gulag network is getting bigger. Exit quotation from a VICE producer: “Um … so Kim Jong Un just got the (hash)VICEonHBO crew wasted … no really, that happened.”

Update: CNN’s verdict? A “diplomatic triumph.”

On the orders of Kim Jong-un to leave “no trace of him behind, down to his hair,” according to South Korean media, Kim Chol was forced to stand on a spot that had been zeroed in for a mortar round and “obliterated.”
 
The execution of Kim Chol is just one example of a purge of members of the North Korean military or party who threatened the fledgling regime of Kim Jong-un.
 
So far this year, 14 senior officials have fallen victim to the purges…

The real way to change North Korea is through persuasion and friendship. Penetrate the iron curtain with friendship, not missiles.

They all want to be like the leaders of North Korea……

You are right AP, “useful idiot” just doesn’t come close to covering it. Gawker’s pics are heartbreaking. I rarely visit the site but for once it was worth a click.

Eemeli Anttonen · Helsinki, Finland
What do you think he should have done? Ignored the invitation because it’s unethical? North Korea is a country and they would not give a flying fuck if he didn’t come. At best it would just have further deteriorated US-North Korea relations which could sometime in the future kill thousands if not millions of people.

Been tried. How’s that working out?

The Committee for Human Rights in North Korea estimates that North Korea holds approximately 200,000 people in its system of concentration and detention camps, and that 400,000 people have died in these camps from torture, starvation, disease, and execution. These reports, in the context of estimates that North Korea has allowed between 600,000 and 2,500,000 of its people to starve to death while its government – See more at: http://freekorea.us/camps/#sthash.KOWR1geB.dpuf

May I just play the Devil’s advocate here … literally, and say

Three days ago N. Korea was talking about obliterating S. Korea and launching missiles at Japan and they were saber rattling the hell out everyone.

Why the hell NOT send in the Globe Trotters? Why not send the Kardashians? If all it takes to alleviate the fears of millions of S. Koreans facing another civil war and get some positive “feel good” stroke representing the US. Friggin do it.

Overwhelm N. Korea with all of our best distractions and pseudo-celebrities and maybe THAT will change the tone and get some steam going for productive discussions.

It’s like the line in Galaxy Quest

Gwen DeMarco: Look! I have one job on this lousy ship, it’s *stupid*, but I’m gonna do it! Okay

Good Job Globetrotters and Rodman. Bring back pictures and stuff.

Is the world fixed? No. But at least that fire is banked for a little while.

Are they allowed to wander about the streets unaccompanied by a keeper?

Solaratov on February 28, 2013 at 9:06 PM

Appeasing with what? Clowns? It keeps them busy thinking about innocuous things. It’s a distraction and aparently an effective one. It’s called PR. Appeasement would be sending the President to bow again and don’t think that option is off the table. I’d rather see Rodman there.

BrideOfRove on February 28, 2013 at 9:07 PM

AH Dennis Rodman. Used to hang out at a lake near us back in TX, him and his rowdy friends. and his cigarette boat. my son worked at a marina restaurant and just hated it when they come in, take up a bunch of tables, drop his bumper guards on the floor, acted like royalty. Then this happened at a different lake, and while he,s innocent till proven guilty, everyone knew how he drove that boat of his, and what kind of condition he and his friends were in when they went on the lake.

Walter Sobchak on February 28, 2013 at 7:47 PM

So what if they have Nukes? I thought guns did not kill, but the person does? The same principle applies to nuclear capabilities. What’s the immediate harm in North Korea having nukes? Other than them being able to deter an invasion from an aggressor? It’s funny but America used to only go to war in response to aggression, now after Iraq, seems most Republicans are the terrorists who advocate for aggressive wars.

I agree that we should not GIVE North Korea anything, but we should open up trade and dialogue as much as possible with them, and all nations. As long as North Korea does not actually attack the United States, then we should be friends. We’re not God and cannot solve everything, and in the end, the people of North Korea are ultimately responsible for their own government.

We’ve been policing the world for the last 70+ years and look where that’s gotten us. Insolvent, spread thin and ushering in a Fascistic/Marxist system of our own. Please let go of the useless North Korea/Iran obsession, and Israel worship and start working on our own fixing our own tyrannical government here in America.

Sigh.. Another emotionally unhinged necon warmonger.

Do you blame America first as it pertains to Obamacare? I do.

Do you blame America first when it elects Obama? You Bet Your Ass I Do.

I blame America, when America is wrong.

If the only reason you support America, is because “we’re America”, then you’ve not even considered right and wrong.

America holds the power to change the relationship with Iran and NKorea.

The drug war is very expensive and contributes to Rome burning.

Our foreign intervention and blowback also lead to Rome burning.

Stop listening to Levin, Coulter, Hannity, Limbaugh and start listening to Peter Schiff, Judge Napolitano and John Stossel.

You’re saying that North Korea will start a nuclear war against us?

But, they have nukes and have not done so.

Your nationalistic propaganda is a few years behind.

North Korea has Nukes, and Armageddon has not begun.

I also predict that if Iran had nukes, they’d not use them.

The reason you aggressors don’t want these nations to have nukes is because then you can’t invade them. Tyrants always want the object of their tyranny to be completely defenseless.

Let’s just keep it real.

fatlibertarianinokc on February 28, 2013 at 10:13 PM

Hey Kook:

Conservatism is the best philosophy.

I don’t consider a Marxist thug from Chicago to be an American. He is intent on destroying America and turing us into a socialist ruin.

Normally I’m not a fan of Coulter, but she nailed it last week on Stossel:

This is exactly why you libertarians are such ________.

We are now 70% socialist with the gov’t taking 60% of everything we earn and the first two things in your priority list are legalizing drugs and gay marriage.

Don’t you think there are bigger fish to fry??

And evil exists in the world. Pandering to them will not make them hate us less. It was true with the Nazis and radical Islam.

When their nutjob leader says he wants to blow Israel off the map he doesn’t really mean it??

Maybe we should send Rodman over there too. Or invite the jihadists onto Dr. Phil.

This is exactly why I hate Ron Paul.

I’m outta her for while, you’re a complete waste of my time.

Last thing:

Just admit it kook:

You HATE Israel just like RuPaul.

Let’s just keep it real.

The fact that you get so angry, and emotional is because you don’t have any articulate reasons as to why North Korea and Iran are such an imminent threat to us. The reason they’re a threat to us is simply because you (and the establishment) perceive them as a threat. It’s just a largely self-created problem.

I just don’t see them as a threat to us, especially with nukes. The reason you hate Ron Paul is not because he’s wrong, it’s because he’s consistent. And all the while you can’t be consistent because your beliefs are not guided by principle, they’re guided by emotion, nationalism and anti-muslim propaganda. Outside of hate, what evidence do you have that North Korea will aggressively attack us? (CRICKETS)

I do not hate Israel at all. I have no reason to hate Israel. I do hate Obama’s policies because they violate my liberty. But North Korea does not violate our liberties. Iran does not violate your liberties. Obama’s does.

I’m suggesting you examine the reasons why you’ve been told to hate Iran and North Korea. Once you do, and you understand limited government simultaneously it all starts to break down. Why are those nations a threat to us? Because some people think they are.

And in the end, America holds the power in the world to change these relationships. I mean, North Korea and Iran are not putting sanctions on us, after all. Therefore the onus is on us to change it. You’ve been listening to the nationalistic and emotional Levin too long. Nationalism should never be a substitute for morality. And this goes for everyone of every nation – we should always put our individual liberty above our love of country and if we did that there’d never be a single war.

I’m surprised they didn’t mistake him for a horse and eat him…

Nothing like dancing on graves to get your appetite up

The ignoramus parties with the great slaver of the world

Not sure if they still require female inmates to strangle their own babies at birth, but there is lots of good reading on N. Korea for Rodman, if he could take that N Korean pork chop out of his mouth

I’ve been away for a while and it appears I’ve missed the latest morph of the troll species. Could someone please identify or classify it for me? Thank you!

Because wars our only fought by people who hate liberty? What ****ing idealistic claptrap.

Rodman is so butt ugly, he makes Kerry look like a leading man by contrast.

That’s going some, but, you know, you’re right.

The real way to change North Korea is through persuasion and friendship. Penetrate the iron curtain with friendship, not missiles

Thanks Neville, we’ll take that under consideration.

Rodman needs to meet this guy.

I suspect Kathy Griffin is just seething over a missed publucity opportunity. And paycheck.

TexasDan on March 1, 2013 at 11:38 AM

“…we had the Pyongyang cold noodles earlier in the trip…”

A dish with the same IQ as Rodman.

Outside of propaganda from our lying fascist government, do you have any actual proof that the people in North Korea are starving? Propaganda is not proof. I want verifiable photos and documentation. I refuse to be manipulated by our state propaganda the way you and most others are, Allahpundit, so I want proof. And while I’ve been hearing this crap for years, I’ve never seen any actual, real, hard proof.

It just seems like another method to make certain we keep propping up the military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about as he worked hard to create it.
