North Korea Calls Obama ‘Wicked Black Monkey’ on State-Run Media

North Koreans attend a rally in support of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's order to put its missile units on standby in preparation for a possible war against the U.S. and South Korea, in PyongyangNorth Korea for years has confounded the world with its head-scratching diplomacy, but the rogue nation has appeared to reach a new low: Incredibly racist news reports on the country’s state-run media refer to President Obama as a “wicked black monkey,” among other epithets.

In addition, the media outlet KCNA has referred to South Korean President Park Geun-hye as an “indecent philistine and vile prostitute serving the U.S.”

While it isn’t unusual for the country’s state-run media to post vitriolic rhetoric, these latest are unusual in their crudeness and offensiveness.

The worst piece, published in Korean on May 2 and caught by a blog called One Free Korea, has the headline, “Divine punishment to the world’s one and only delinquent Obama.” The story repeatedly refers to the leader of the free world as a monkey.

“You can also tell this by his appearance and behavior, and while it may be because he is a crossbreed, one cannot help thinking the more one sees him that he has escaped from a monkey’s body,” it stated.

“It would be better for him to live with other monkeys at a wild animal park in Africa … and licking bread crumbs thrown by onlookers,” worker Kang Hyok at Chollima Steel Complex was quoted as saying.

Marie Harf, a State Department spokeswoman, yesterday called the report “offensive and ridiculous and absurd.”

“I don’t know how many words I can use up here to describe the rhetoric … It’s disgusting,” she told reporters at the Foreign Press Center in Washington.

In the view of Yoo Ho-yeol, professor of North Korea studies at Korea University in South Korea, what North Korea is doing is garnering attention by publishing such comments through its state-run news agency. He added that it tries to distance the government from the remarks by attributing them to a citizen.

“If it was to publish such a report in the voice of the authorities it would entrap them, whereas reporting the story under some ordinary citizen’s name will give them leeway,” Yoo said, according to the Associated Press.

  2. Oh how shocking this is. ..lol

  3. They are trying to embarrass the president with words, because saying the president look like a monkey, he need another pair of glasses. How in the world can a little short, fat, obesed, no manly sex appeal, feel he can criticize the president looks, or any black man looks. Come on now, obviously, they are jelious of the president looks. Just a buch of short little people, everything is short on his body. The racist Japanese, they are not into sex with women hardly, no they are not gay, but they are into virtual/simulated sex. Report just came out the other. To all blacks, this is waht they call all blacks. is that a joke or what? The very sport he love with a passion, he cannot play because he is short and fat. I refuse to sit back and allow them to talk about black people. Asians/Koreans along with the rest of them, do not share a common genetic heritage, they came from different lineages, that migrated from Africa. Unlike the Africans, no mixing, except the ones who intergrated. Talking about Obama is mixed, what is he? White poeple's own genetic scientist a German, Svante Paabo, said, "Genetics should be the last nail in the coffin for racism", as this Korean has tried to do. The scientist also said, :Genetics will help beat down racist arguments, but they will need to be beaten down, because they will keep coming up". President Obama go have yourself a good laugh, as you show them you can play basketball too, and be a president of these US.
