It looks like Juche has won a new convert. Dennis Rodman has had nothing but praise for Kim Jung Un. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Rodman says his visit to North Korea was great and that Kim Jung Un is a good guy.
Stephanopoulos challenged Rodman repeatedly on his travel to North Korea and its atrocious human rights record but Rodman wasn’t having it.
“I don’t condone that. I hate the fact that he’s doing that. I didn’t talk about that. I saw people respected him, his family. He’s only 28. He’s not his dad. He’s not his grandpa. He is 28 years old. He’s very humble. He’s a very humble man. He don’t want war, that’s one thing he don’t want. He loves power. He loves control, because of his father, you know, stuff like that. But he’s just…he’s a great guy. He’s just a great guy. You sit down and talk to him,” said Rodman.
I wonder if Dennis Rodman will be part of the Juche mythology? Will The North Koreans claim that he appears in dreams to inspire belief in Juche?
