North Korea insults Obama with racist barbs, South Korea's Park with sexist ones

(CNN) - Vitriolic insults hurled by North Korea's state-run media are so frequent that they're usually not news.

But recent KCNA articles use such racially-charged rhetoric that they have drawn criticism from the White House's National Security Council, which called them "particularly ugly and disrespectful."

    I guess this just proves that there are Tea Partiers and Calvin Bundy's in North Korea too.

    That's just north Korea being north Korea – kinda like crazy Uncle Cletus who gets drunk and sees "commies" everywhere, and KNOWS for a FACT that President Obama is right outside his door waiting to PERSONALLY take away his guns. Always good for a laugh, but be sure to lock your liquor & gun cabinets when he's around!

    Now the RWNJs are certainly going to fall in love with North Korea. The GOP motto should be, any other country first.

    What's the big deal? President Obama has acquired a thick skin from all the racist crap that Republicans have thrown at him.

  13. OK

    Kim Jong-un just needs to start running around with no shirt on and the right will have themselves a new hero,

  14. ThinkAgain: Don't like Congress? Get rid of the repub/tea bag majority.

    @Bill from GA: "That's enough, now. Let's just NUKE them Commies and be done with it."

    Utterly stupid remark.

  16. Say it ain't so

    So much for Obama being loved and respected everywhere in the world. I guess he needs to schedule a stop in North Korea for his next apology tour?

  17. Wake Up People! Many Rivers to cross.....

    Who gives a damn? The elected officials in this country have called him worse names, but it's kept low key by our librul media.

    Trust me President Obama has been called worse.

    Move over Putin, the little fat North Korean is about to take your spot as the hero of the GOP!!

  18. Wake Up People! Many Rivers to cross.....

    Think again... I think you misunderstood me. I was saying the GOP seems to be blaming Willard's loss on the media. I don't know how because it seems the media always takes their side. And I'm not a Bub maybe a Bubette..... ☺️

    "So much for Obama being loved and respected everywhere in the world."

    Do you know how stupid that attempt at a "gotcha" sounds in light of the past 70 years of US history with North Korea???

    North Korea insults the US and South Korea`s leaders and somehow the GOP is getting the blame. I guess I shoudn`t be surprised anymore.

    I wonder how people are quietly cheering to themselves, "He's one of us!"

    No one on these comments blamed the GOP. I think people are just drawing the obvious and striking similarity between the sexism and racism in the GOP and N.Korean media. N.Korea is more honest about it of course.
