“We find your lack of sincerity disturbing, comrade”

Well, now we know why North Koreans were crying so hysterically at the death of psychotic brandy-swilling midget Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il last month. As I wrote at the time:

Some of it may be genuine fear for the future, and I’m sure some of it is also fear of what happens if they don’t perform on cue.

Turns out I was right:

Following the mourning period for former leader Kim Jong Il, North Korean authorities have begun to punish citizens who did not display enough sadness at his death, The Daily NK reported Wednesday.

The Daily NK, an online newspaper based in South Korea and run by opponents of the North Korean government, said it had learned from a source in North Hamkyung Province that, “The authorities are handing down at least six months in a labor-training camp to anybody who didn’t participate in the organized gatherings during the mourning period, or who did participate but didn’t cry and didn’t seem genuine.”

You also get imprisonment or internal exile for daring to question the dynastic succession that gave the throne of the world’s largest prison camp masquerading as a real nation to Dear Leader’s son, Kim Jong-Un.

And people wonder why so many of us are suspicious of government having too much power.

    None of them seemed genuine to me. There is a huge difference in a person’s body language when they are crying out for fear or out of genuine love. – Lorica

    Kim Jong-Eunuch just has that look of a world leader, doesn’t he?

    Beautiful, Sev.

    And remember, this is the Utopia to which our own Dear Leader wants us to rush into with open arms.

    What a maroon, when the evidence of his “paradise” is right before his eyes and he still can’t see it.
