North Korea has banned Sarcasm. Kim Jong-un sees sarcastic comments as unacceptable criticism of the regime. The government blamed the sarcastic comments on America.
North Korea has done the unthinkable … They have banned sarcasm.
In Kim Jong-un’s most diabolical move yet, he has had his government crack down on anyone making sarcastic comments about him or the government. All because he can’t tell if people are praising him “ironically.” Truly a problem that dictators everywhere struggle with.
Kim Jong-un let the country know by having his party hold mass meetings that were mandatory attendance so government officials could tell them to keep their mouths shut.
“One state security official personally organised a meeting to alert local residents to potential ‘hostile actions’ by internal rebellious elements,” said one North Korean to Radio Free Asia’s Korean Service. “The main point of the lecture was ‘Keep your mouths shut.’”
