North Korea’s dictator and supreme leader Kim Jong-Un has banned his citizens from making sarcastic remarks about his regime or government as a mocking expression ‘a fool who cannot see the outside world’ is said to be circulating rapidly in North Korea.
Satire directed towards the regime and even indirect criticisms of leadership will not be forgiven. Mass meetings organized by central government authorities have been used to issue the warnings.
The warning against indirect criticism of the country in their everyday conversations has been issued because Kim Jong believes people only agree with him ironically, according to reports from media houses in Pyongyang, North Korea.
According to reports from media houses in Pyongyang, North Korea
“One state security official personally organised a meeting to alert local residents to potential ‘hostile actions’ by internal rebellious elements,” a source in Jagang Province told Radio Free Asia’s Korean Service. The main point of the lecture was ‘Keep your mouths shut.’
Officials told people that sarcastic expressions such as “This is all America’s fault” would constitute intolerable criticism of the regime.
“This habit of the central authorities of blaming the wrong country when a problem’s cause obviously lies elsewhere has led citizens to mock the party,” an anonymous source said.
The source added:
‘This habit of the central authorities of blaming the wrong country when a problem’s cause obviously lies elsewhere has led citizens to mock the party. another blacklisted expression is, ‘a fool who cannot see the outside world,’. The phrase has been used widely by government workers in Pyongyang who were shocked when Kim Jong-Un didn’t show up for celebrations held in Russia and China to mark the end of the Second World War.
