Juche: Dennis Rodman praises Kim Jung Un as a humble and a great guy!

RodmanJungun

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?

    When Rodman was on the Bulls he put on a wedding dress, jumped
    on a motorcycle & married himself.
    He could be an Obama Cabinet Secretary.

    Rodman is a former b-ball player. The Chair likes b-ball. The Chair likes socialism and Korea fits that bill. I can see how Rodman might be an unsuspecting dupe as a selectee to become a quasi-ambassador of good will(ahem) to represent another outreach to yet another radical leader.

    The Axis of Evil just got smaller in Libbyworld.

    Yep, Rodman will be sketched into a large drawing, nicely framed, and placed into Kim Jung Un’s office space, replete with American DVD’s and bottles of alcohol for the elites to enjoy.

    @ Rodan:

    If anything, other than the absurdity of Rodman going there with the Globetrotters(how apropos) I don’t see the reason or advantage being other than political. Because if it’s just about b-ball they would have to lower the hoop height for the K’s to get on-board with the game. I suspect motives that are dangerous, and gauging this Admins track record, it stinks to low hell.

    DOJ: Children Do Not Need—and Have No Right to--Mothers

    (CNSNews.com) -- The Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need mothers.

    The Justice Department’s argument on the superfluity of motherhood is presented in a brief the Obama administration filed in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which challenges the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended California’s Constitution to say that marriage involves only one man and one woman.

    Home schooling is also on the DOJ’s list of evils to be eliminated.

    Obama Pushing To Diversify The Federal Judiciary

    In Florida, President Obama has nominated the first openly gay black man to sit on a federal district court. In New York, he has nominated the first Asian American lesbian. And his pick for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit? The first South Asian.

    Reelected with strong support from women, ethnic minorities and gays, Obama is moving quickly to change the face of the federal judiciary by the end of his second term, setting the stage for another series of drawn-out confrontations with Republicans in Congress.

    “Diversity in and of itself is a thing that is strengthening the judicial system,” White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler said. “It enhances the bench and the performance of the bench and the quality of the discussion . . . to have different perspectives, different life experiences, different professional experiences, coming from a different station in life, if you will.”

    That loud thud you just heard was from my forehead hitting the wall.

    No, I haven’t seen it.

    I’d toyed with the idea of submitting an amicus brief myself, but it’s not as though I’ve had the time to do it.

    I think the whole “mother and father” issue is a complete red herring, insofar as it is addressing the issue of children being raised by same-sex couples. That has nothing to do with the issue of same-sex marriage—well, it does, but only after the issue of same-sex marriage is itself addressed.

    The problem with same-sex “marriage” is that there is no compelling reason to invent a new form of marriage to accommodate a small but vocal political pressure group—especially when that group was formed around the idea of destroying marriage in the first place, and has never formally abandoned that objective. Indeed, while the documents attesting to that objective still exist, the pressure group has never been called to account for them.

    There was an article I read somewhere in the last few months where a “study” purported to prove that two lesbian parents raised the “best-adjusted” children. Well, after forty years of gender studies bullshit and delegitimization of masculinity, I can well believe such a study exists—but, like slanted opinion polls, it’s a matter of choosing what criteria you want to claim are “proper adjustments,” and picking your sample group accordingly.

    The amount of rot that works hand in hand between the legal establishment and the “caring professions” is unbelievable.

    Read an article about two-three weeks ago about a supposedly “transgender” boy who was “transitioning” from male to female—with, of course, his parents’ approval and participation.

    To indulge this in a pre-pubescent child is, in my view, child abuse.@ buzzsawmonkey:

    It is abusive, an adolescent is more than likely just
    confused.
    Once he has the surgery, it’s too late

    He had breasts! Where did he get boobs in prison?

    He ordered them from the Charles Johnson-Smith Catalog.

    That man sells everything.

    @ 81 lobo91: My old man and his old man and his old man would have beat the crap out of me until I couldn’t remember what i was thinking about. I am softened by the 21st century and probably would unique the kid not transgender him and have him choose after puberty.

    Reading transgender politics is kind of insane. They have a word for non transgenders and flake out at anyone who has a skeptical eyebrow.

    And where did the kid even come up with the idea in the first place?

    It had to be either from the parents or from teachers.

    Let’s assume the kid was heavily into wearing Mommy’s clothes and saying, “I’m a girl! I’m a girl!” or something. It would seem appropriate for the parents to attempt to discourage, rather than indulge, such behavior.

    It’s funny to contrast the whole “wait until they’re grown up so they can decide for themselves” line that the Left pushes with regard to, say, religious instruction—knowing full well that if the child is not instructed/brought up in a religious tradition from youth there is little likelihood they will go towards it as an adult—with the push to get kids to commit to “alternate forms of sexuality” at as early an age as possible. Anyone note a trend there?

    Hell, when I was a second grader I just put a (clean) pair of underwear on my head and pretended it was a World War One biplane pilot’s leather helmet. :lol:

    The whole Snoopy and the Red Baron thing was really big then. I blame Charles Schulz.
