‘Even North Korea is not this nuts’: Defector slams ‘woke’ US schools
A North Korean defector said she viewed the US as country of free thought and free speech – until she went to college here.
Yeonmi Park attended Columbia University and was immediately struck by what she viewed anti-Western sentiment in the classroom and a focus on political correctness that had her thinking “even North Korea isn’t this nuts.”
“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park told Fox News. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”
“I literally crossed the Gobi Desert to be free and I realized I’m not free, America’s not free,” she said.
Park said North Korea students were constantly informed about the “American Bastard.”
“I thought North Koreans were the only people who hated Americans, but turns out there are a lot of people hating this country in this country,” she told The Post.
Some pundits out there scoff at the idea that the nationhood of America That Was was built around certain values and ideals, preferring blood-and-soil nativism as the only conceptual framework that can ever be truly relevant. By their lights, someone like Park can never really be genuinely American, in any meaningful sense.
It’s codswallop. As far as I’m concerned, this fine young woman is way more American than any Democrat or shitlib will ever be, or in truth would want to be. What she says here is no more than the plain truth, coming from someone who certainly would know. It’s greatly to her credit that she’s courageous enough to tell it, however much it hurts.
