If there’s one thing we have learned from history’s dictators it’s that they all have disarmed their citizens. It’s no surprise that North Korea’s dictator hates our 2nd amendment. After all, he doesn’t want his people getting ideas about being able to protect themselves… from their government or otherwise.
In a new video, Kim Jong Un shows his disgust with our right to bear arms and scolds America for allowing this right to exist. Interestingly, his words sound very much like words that have come from President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, and other anti-gun politicians seeking to disarm law abiding Americans.
The video has been translated and explained by nknews.org and has been transcribed below:
North Korea’s state-run Korea Central Television slammed U.S. citizens’ right to keep and bear arms…as the “corrupted American way on protection of human rights.”
The about 10-minute-long video, entitled “Who is the criminal against humanity? Human rights’ hell” was uploaded on YouTube last Saturday.
The first half of the video shows a compilation of recent human rights abuses by U.S. police officers, arguing that “U.S. citizens’ are suffering from the state’s horrible human rights violations….”
The second half of the video consists of North Korean TV’s view of U.S. citizens’ right to keep and bear arms and the ongoing debate over gun control in the U.S.
“The man-hating ideology and widespread law of the jungle in the U.S. has turned its people into violent executioners where one may live by killing another,” reads the North Korean commentator.
“One can only exercise his/her political, social, cultural and all other human rights if one can be assured of the safety to live,” said Ro Keum Chul, faculty from the law department of Kim Il Sung University.
“The U.S. law that allows citizens to keep and bear arms shows the corrupted American way of protection of human rights.”
Ro also explained that the national law should ensure and respect people’s human rights but the U.S. right to keep and bear arms is hampering the process of ensuring the safety of people to live, resulting in gun crimes every day.
“Only the lawfully, culturally and morally stable society where the country protects its people’s lives can guarantee the true human rights,” said Ro.
The video also displayed how U.S. politicians are reacting to the evolving discussion on gun control law….
“U.S. the murder kingdom, the habitat of racism and the worst state for violations the human rights,” said the commentator.
Remember these statements are coming from one of the biggest human rights violators on the planet. And his reasoning for an end of the right to bear arms is all in the name of safety. Sound familiar?
In 2009 North Korea implemented strict gun control measures that would not allow the public to own, possess, or buy guns. Guns are only to be used for official duties and training. I wonder how safe North Koreans feel.
There are currently over 200,000 North Koreans in prison camps and many are there for merely criticizing the government.
According to PBS, North Korea is guilty of committing atrocities on an enormous scale:
Rape, torture, forced abortions, starvation, enslavement and murder are part of the North Korean government’s effort to control its people and crush dissent, the commission found. It said it planned to refer the allegations to the International Criminal Court.
