Left Wing Media, Which Never Met A Genocidal Communist Tyrant They Didn't Like, Praises North Korean Kim's Sister, Criticizes Pence

The left in the U.S. follows a simple rule: look the other way at crimes against humanity as long as those perpetrating it hate America as much as they do!

Something interesting happened at the Winter Olympics in Korea. Much of the left wing media went into a full swoon over Kim Yo Jong, deputy director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of North Korea, and sister of murderous dictator Kim Jong Un. There were an astonishing number of flattering news stories along with negative comparisons to Vice President Mike Pence that it can't be mere coincidence. Something else is at play here.

A sampling:

Apparently the irony of that last quote was lost on the people who run the Washington Post. North Koreans are a captive people. The very worst Stalinist state in existence where the people are literally "captive" and are shot if they try to escape.

Left's Praise for Butchers Goes Back Nearly 100 Years

But this is nothing to a left wing media tradition that goes back nearly a century  to praise genocidal communist tyrants. New York Times columnist Walter Duranty won a Pulitizer Prize for his reporting on Stalin and the Soviet Union in the 1930's. Whether a willing accomplice or not Duranty played right into the hands of Soviet Propaganda covering up the monstrous crime of agricultural collectivization which resulted in the starvation of millions of people. But never mind about that.

Then there's the glowing and uncritical coverage of Che Guevara, Fidel Castro and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. Left wing icons like Noam Chomsky even praised the Khmer Rouge revolution in Cambodia which led to the genocide of the Killing Fields while dismissing factual reports as mere stories from refugees.

So, here we have a left wing media that gladly trumpets North Korean propaganda which is used to enslave it's people and they do so willingly because they hate Trump and America as much as the North Koreans too.

Would CNN also do this?

Maybe so, as the New York Times actually did this:
In fairness, not all left wing media joined this twisted hate fest.
Bethany Mandel in the New York Post:
Unavailable for comment on that side-eye? Otto Warmbier, an American college student brutally tortured and killed by the North Korean regime last year. His father, Fred, was a guest of Pence’s at the Olympics, and was present also at the State of the Union.
American Otto Warmbier being removed from an airplane in a coma
 after being released from North Korea. 
Again from Bethany Mandel in the New York Post:
Strange reading a red carpet-like report about a member of a regime that has concentration camps the size of Los Angeles, where children have been secretly photographed starving in the streets and whose leader uses anti-aircraft weaponry to execute his political enemies.
Not everyone was fooled into parroting propaganda. MSNBC host Willie Geist tweeted, “I can report South Koreans here in PyeongChang are not as enthralled with Kim Yo Jong and the North Korean cheerleaders as it seems some media are back home. Something about N.K. killing, starving, imprisoning its people while threatening South Korea with nuclear annihilation.”
Not ONE of the reporters who slavishly gushed over North Korea actually stopped to think that while they were making critical comments on V.P. Mike Pence, that if they were North Koreans doing the same for their government they would be shot. But then, I guess they are not worried since they obviously have no intention of criticizing North Korea or ANY genocidal communist regime!
