An invidious comparison

‘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.

People only hate it here because they were born into luxury & spoiled for choice, wholly ignorant of the brutish realities awaiting them outside the borders of our mostly safe, prosperous, & nerfed-cornered world. Having never experienced the danger, grinding poverty, & lack of opportunity that is the norm in large parts of the rest of the world, they are simply spoiled children (even the adults) who have no life experience & don’t know any better, filled with the rage & hormones of youth & nowhere productive to direct it to, thanks to academia & various other evil puppet masters. They’re all dressed up with no place to go.

As to your closing point, agreed.  

It’s just meritocracy.

It ain’t complicated.

Either you can perform, or you can’t.

Either you uphold values & standards & gain the franchise, or you don’t, & so lose, or never gain the opportunity.  (At least that’s how it works in places that aren’t wholly retarded about immigration, which should also be here, but clearly isn’t.)

The only people who complain about that are the ones who want a free ride, or the ones who want to conquer.  Any sane nation that wants its civilization to continue gives those folks a boot to the butt & an invitation to never come back.

For those already here who hate it?

It’s called a plane ticket people. Uncle Sam’s buyin’!

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
