Let Them Eat Snow – North Korean Report on Life in America

UPDATE: It’s a fake.

‘How Americans Live Today’: Fake North Korean Propaganda Video Punks The Internet

This North Korean news report, titled “How Americans Live Today,” may be in need of a little bit of fact-checking.

“This is how Americans live today- drinking coffee made from snow and living in tents, and buying guns to kill each other, especially children. Some people complain about the guns…”

Kim Jong-un has a serious problem – how to keep his people convinced that their country is a relatively nice place to live, despite starvation, prison camps, power shortages, and a leader who clearly doesn’t know what he’s doing. Possession of foreign-made video CDs is a serious crime in North Korea.

Despite the propaganda, some people have a clue.

Defectors have told U.S. officials that the North Korean people—probably not a majority, but still a growing number—are aware of the glaring contrast between their own lives and the rest of the world.

Of course, if Paul Ryan gets his way maybe we can reduce the contrast between us and North Korea…

    Richard, I thought North Korea was your kind of nirvana. I mean, income equality, free health care, making money is bad, and all that.

    The North Korean version of America is Paul Ryan’s Ayn Rand utopia. All you can get from the government is one cup of melted snow per day – otherwise you’re on your own.

    Did you see the latest from the GOP wrecking crew?

    Rep. Paul Ryan: Republicans won’t ‘give up on destroying the health care system’

    Out of context quote, but hey, what goes around comes around.

    You take Kim Jong Un’s utopia. I’ll take the US Constitution’s.

    Let’s hope the Republicans don’t get any ideas from this video. We thought catfood was bad.

    Or to quote Woody Allen from “Love and Death”: How about a nice big bowl of sleet?
