Listening to K-pop ~ death by firing squad

MAN SOLD CDs FOR FIVE BUCKS

In North Korea a young man was executed by firing squad for selling South Korean K-pop CDs inside the Brutal Kingdom. He confessed to bringing the outlawed CDs and USB sticks into the country and selling them for $5 to $12 each.

The man, identified only by his last name of Lee, was then shot to death in a fusillade of bullets in front of a crowd of 500 people including his own family after violating Dictator Kim Jong-un’s new ‘anti-reactionary thought law.

NORTH KOREA

FAMILY TAKEN TO PRISON CAMP

Lee’s wife, son and daughter who had been standing in the front row of the execution area collapsed and were loaded into a truck and taken to a political prisoner camp.

“The family’s friends and neighbors had to stifle their grief and weep in silence for fear of being caught in the criminal act of having compassion for a reactionary,” according to a source who witnessed the shocking event.

Kim Jong-un has outlawed the South Korean popular music as a “vicious cancer corrupting North Korean youths’ attire, hairstyles, speech and behavior,” a crime that warrants 15 years in a labor camp, or, in Lee’s case, execution.

LISTEN TO BLACKPINK AT YOUR PERIL

Citizens who fail to report someone who watched or distributed the forbidden music are sentenced to seven years in prison. Even just having compassion for a reactionary gets you locked away in a prison camp.

“The entire population is shaking with fear,” the source said.

The South Korean superstar group Blackpink (블랙핑크) is a prime example of the kind of music that can cost you your life in the North.

Since hitting the world stage in 2016, the South Korean girl group — Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa — has become the highest-charting female Korean act on the Billboard Hot 100.

Final Departure


Next step — the Patriot Party?

TRUMP PATRIOT PARTY

Donald Trump’s next move is to start a third political party — the Patriot Party — to take on the Democrats and his own Republican Party in the next federal election.

“The movement we started is only just beginning,” Trump said in his farewell address on Tuesday.

Polls show that Trump has strong support among rank-and-file GOP voters. More than 74 million Americans voted for him.


Washington DC — Dystopian City

VOTERS ASKEWD FOR IT!

The normally busy streets around Washington’s Capitol building are empty amid growing threats of violence for Qiáo Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday.

A loudspeaker repeatedly announces in an ominous Communistic monotone:

This is a test of the US Capitol Police audible emergency notification system.

“Super dystopian,” said a member of Remora House DC, an outreach center that shelters the district’s homeless. “Super scary times we live in.”


Kind of like Pyongyang, North Korea
