jokes allegedly told by north korean defectors

US propaganda radio has some funny jokes which they claim came from defectors. Maybe maybe not, but the jokes are very funny.

Two things amused me about that. Firstly, the wife-and-child joke, which I'd never heard before. Secondly, that the Russians are (when they appear) on the good guys' side :)

(I suspect some of those jokes are Russian in origin anyway...)

I wonder why this US-government-affiliated body has decided to release this particular list of quips at this particular time?

I had a couple insights as well.

One is I was wondering if North Koreans really know all that about all these other cultures. If so, they must know that they are prisoners of their own horrible system right, and if they would stop with the bullshit they wouldn't have to starve to death or cannibalize their own children anymore, right? Hard to say if that is true. I want to believe that they believe the propaganda and are innocent, but if they know the truth, then shit. In that case they get what they deserve, a government to oppress them so they can know it and do nothing.

Second, is the last joke where they are told to get a mouse and get a dog and beat it until it confessed to being a mouse. Maybe that is North Korea, but the first thing I thought of was the US. We arrest people here and terrorists abroad and get them to confess to things they didn't do by using both torture and psychological manipulation.

I read about the proven fact of "wilding" in a sociology class textbook.

The kids arrested said they were tortured by NYPD until they confessed.

No one believed them.

Years later they had to release them when DNA proved they were all innocent.

Here's a whole book on how the US tortures people to get false confessions and then goes after them with the death penalty, knowing they are innocent.

Just like you know your own political system is bullshit, just like 80% of other Americans, yet none of you have exactly formed a movement and overthrown it yet.

I am well armed and train with my local militia.

Now that I have agreed with you, will your next step be to say I am an extremist who must be stopped?

Dammed if you will, dammed if you won't.

Whoop de fucking do.

You haven't.

No, you're an idiot who must be ignored.

>Dammed if you will, dammed if you won't.

*patiently awaits CC's attempt to overthrow the US government*

...after all, if we can blame the norks for not doing it, why can't we blame you for not doing it either?
