OWS gets some loving from North Korea
What I find fascinating about the thug regimes of the world coming out in support of OWS is that no such phenomena occurred when the Tea Party started.
You would have thought anti-American regimes would have been praising the Tea Party for their anti-government stand but such never occurred. Even the Iranians didn't give rhetorical support to the TP.
In this instance, it's a marriage made in heaven:
North Korea's state news agency weighed in on the Occupy Wall Street protests Thursday, highlighting the "stern judgment" of "millions of people" against a capitalist system that "brings exploitation, oppression, unemployment and poverty to the popular masses."
The Korean Central News Agency's daily dispatches usually contain a few accounts of the woes of the rest of the world, so KCNA's editors were probably rubbing their hands with glee at the chance to play up the Occupy movement, which the report says is "sweeping across the capitalist world."
With no apparent sense of irony, KCNA says that in capitalist society "1% of privileged class is granted all preferential treatment while 99% of working masses are forced into poverty and death."
Predictably, the report focuses on the woes of the U.S. in particular, reeling off a list of stats about declining incomes, increasing homelessness and unemployment.
"Low-income earners' pent-up wrath against avaricious big banks and companies that caused economic inequality finally gave its vent," the report says.
In the final few paragraphs, the report appears to start channeling Karl Marx in predicting the decline and ultimate fall of the "exploiting class" under the weight of "the socio-class contradiction of capitalism."
"The end of capitalism is one of inevitabilities of history," it signs off.
Well, OK - you first. The fact that Communism can't even feed the people it rules doesn't seem to be mentioned in the article, but I'm sure that's just an oversight.
We hope to see some pictures of Dear Leader Kim Il Sung in the encampment pretty soon.
