Brainwashing is good because it beat the Nazis?
You say that teaching respect for our country is brainwashing

If thats what you call it then yes, positive teaching about America is better than the hate and bile that libs are spreading
It can be if that teaching pushes a false narrative about the “goodness” of our nation.

An objective examination of who we are and where we come from would produce many criticisms of our country.

This produces a very fundamental problem with the argument given. Somehow we are going to become like North Korea because our universities push out graduates who are too critical of the nation? Given that North Korea is extremely nationalistic where criticism is forbidden, that just doesn’t make any sense.


Being critical of history is one thing, teaching corruption by blood and likewise victimhood, is un-American. Then you move into the anti-nature arena, proclaiming there are multiple genders and then punish people who don't buy your propaganda. People are actually losing their jobs because they refuse to buy into it. Sounds authoritarian to me.

Looks like someone has discovered there’s a lot of money to be made by telling the right wing what they want to hear.


So like the typical commie, you deflect instead of addressing what she said. You commies are really pathetic.

.
Read the thread. I’ve tried to address what I can but most of it is hand waving without substance.

It’s also entirely one sided.


When an individual recounts their own experiences it tends to be one sided. Are you too ignorant to know that?

.
I was referring to the article.

Typically we try to get multiple sides of a story before making a judgement. Seems to be the fair way to do it. You know, that’s how critical thinking usually works. Not accepting one side implicitly.


So tell the class what your exhaustive research as found to counter her arguments. Tell us who you have found with first person experience in NK that says differently.

The article isn’t very good at presenting an argument, as I pointed out.

The references to NK are ridiculous.

Now the left will have to cancel her.

North Korean defector says 'even North Korea was not this nuts' after attending Ivy League school

I've watched a lot of her videos and she did not "realize" leftists were insane jabbering lunatics, she recognized it immediately.

You know - when a North Korean defector tells the citizens of the United States Socialist Republic that we are actually WORSE than North Korea, one would naturally assume that those on the fascist left would pay attention.

Nope.

You are a straight up idiot if you believe US is worse than a third world authoritarian shithole like NK.

No if’s no butts.

If she had a legitimate academic point to make, it wouldn’t sound like that
Absurd

She made her point quite succinctly. Because she didn't phrase it the way YOU PREFER doesn't make it any less relevant.
And she isn't the only one. There are TONS of people who fled NK and Cuba who all say very similar things.
All it requires to hear them is an open mind and understanding that they weren't raised in our overly sensitive culture.

Here is an example of what so many in our nation take for granted and still find ways to complain but a foreigner was floored by our blessings.

I’m not sure to what degree Park is making the point you’re making. She glances over it without saying it specifically.

Her actual identified (in the article at least) criticisms is that 18th century literature was attacked. Okay. Then listening to people’s preferred pronouns was “regression of civilization”.

Let’s apply some critical thinking and all agree that calling someone by a pronoun is not going to result in the US becoming North Korea. I mean, cmon. That’s beyond absurd. I don’t know what every oppressive regime has done but I dare say that they’re not super concerned about people using pronouns. On the same note, isn’t it an exercise of freedom and individuality to declare your identity as something other than what society would demand?

Everything else in the article was just hand waving hyperbole. Nothing specific enough to critique.

What is beyond absurd is that we cow-tow to every nut's wishes and yes it is most certainly a digression of a civilized society. What is next, we are ok with bestiality as long as the animal complies? Why not? Would that be considered a digression? We live in civilized society, as such, certain norms must be followed. Sex isn't malleable, despite what you may have been told. I wouldn't go out of my way to hurt someone's feelings who had an issue with their biological sex, however, I refuse to say a boy is a girl or girl is a boy. The left wants us to do that, which is kind of the point.

You're getting desperate when you quote an uneducated girl from a commu most state predicting the future of America.
Wow.

If she were dissing conservatives you would nominate her for the Nobel Prize. Hypocrisy 101.

People on the outside often see what's staring us right in the face but we are blind to it. Just ask any marriage counselor lol
I understand that. My point is that comparing someone whining about pronouns to the North Korean regime is beyond absurd and is quite harmful to credibility.

If she had a legitimate academic point to make, it wouldn’t sound like that. This instead sounds like an attempt to get attention from right wing media who would eat this nonsense up.

There’s a LOT of money to be made in this space.
You have taken lying to yourself to an entire new level. You’re leftist card will be upgraded to platinum.

Our universities are pushing out brainwashed Maoists who will vote to impose communism on us all.

Horseshit. Accepting one side implicitly is precisely what you do.

BREAKING: African immigrant thinks Donald Trump is a doody-head.

You must take this seriously!
Could you be ANY LESS relevant in your response?
Do you really take seriously any remarks from a North Korean who has lived their entire life under that regime?


Of course you do. She has lived in a totalitarian country long enough, to know the similarities.

Other ex-citizens from Communist countries, who are living here are also expressing their dismay about what's happening in the USA now.
