K-pop star PSY once advocated 'slowly and painfully' killing US soldiers; Update: PSY issues apology, says 'I will forever be sorry'

He has the most-watched YouTube video ever (more than 900 million views), and is set to perform for the Obamas at the annual Christmas in Washington concert later this month.

Eight years ago, however, the “Gangnam Style” K-pop singer advocated  the murder and torture of US military personnel and their family members.

HAPS, an English-language Korean magazine, says PSY’s anti-American views have long been known in Korea, but only recently surfaced in the US.

The lyrics of the anti-US song performed live by PSY and several other popular Korean singers  in 2004 (shortly after the US invaded Iraq) were first translated into English  two months ago on CNN’s iReport:

싸이 rap :

이라크 포로를 고문해 댄 씨발양년놈들과
고문 하라고 시킨 개 씨발 양년놈들에
딸래미 애미 며느리 애비 코쟁이 모두 죽여
아주 천천히 죽여 고통스럽게 죽여

PSY Rap:

Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives

Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture

Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers

Kill them all slowly and painfully

PSY’s anti-American views weren’t discussed when the K-Pop star appeared on Ellen.

Exit question: Will anyone in the mainstream media ask PSY if he still supports killing US soldiers and their family members?

Hat tip: Jon.

Update:

Surprise! Despite PSY’s anti-American views, President Obama still plans to attend his Christmas in Washington performance.

Correction: Twitchy originally stated that PSY was set to perform at the White House. The Obamas will attend PSY’s Christmas in Washington performance, but the concert venue is the National Building Museum. This post has been updated to reflect that information.

Update:

In light of the overwhelming reaction to this story, PSY has issued a statement of apology this afternoon, which reads:

As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world. The song – from eight years ago – was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time. While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused anyone by those words.

I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months – including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them – and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology. While it’s important we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music I try to give people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that though music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology.

The chances of PSY being uninvited from the Christmas in Washington event seemed slim before and are likely nonexistent now. Perhaps the best we can hope for is that the president not say, “No apology necessary.” But will Americans find it in their hearts to forgive for the sake of “a culture of humanity”?

    Perfect guest for the WH, Psy hates Americans and so does the current residents at the WH.

    • Joejoesing

      They don’t hate Americans…they just hate freedom….and anyone who doesn’t agree with them or isn’t willing to be subdued and subverted. They love Americans who are willing to roll over and expose their bellies to their oppression.

    Oppa is Gangnam style
    Gangnam style

    A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
    A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
    A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
    A girl with that kind of twist

    I’m a guy
    A guy who is as warm as you during the day
    A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
    A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
    That kind of guy

    Beautiful, loveable
    Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
    Beautiful, loveable
    Yes you, hey, yes you, hey

    Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
    Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

    A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
    A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
    A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
    A sensable girl like that

    I’m a guy
    A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
    A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
    A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
    That kind of guy

    Beautiful, loveable
    Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
    Beautiful, loveable
    Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
    Now let’s go until the end

    Aren’t the South Koreans free because of the lives of US Maines and Soldiers. Did we not sacrifice and shed enough blood for them to be where they are today, a free society. We liberated South Korea as we liberated Iraq, through the services and sacrifices of our strong and heroic military members. I believe Psy needs a smack in the face on how he is free to make so much money and be a star. It is because of us Yankees as he put it.

      This guy totally has all the right to his views, and your sense of superiority needs a fucking reality-face-smack. We left Korea because of Anti-American Protests DEMANDING our leave. The UN set up a demilitarized zone for peacekeeping, and that was the end of it. Same thing is happening in Afghanistan.

      And yeah bro, Korea was a great win. 10,000+ of our troops lost, 500+ INNOCENT Korean/Asian/American/ civilians lost in our POW camps, and oh I don’t know, the fact that North Korea is STILL HOSTILE? 2010, they torpedoed a S.Kor ship killing 45 sailors. Later they artillery fired upon an island killing 4 S.Kor civilians.

      but no, everythings fine. America is cool. Psy should burn etc.

        The UN didn’t step in. We dragged the UN in. And is the UN the hammer there making sure that DMZ keeps from blowing up? No. It’s us.

        Are you blaming us for NoKo’s continued hostility? If not, what’s your point? How does that relate to our involvement in NoKo’s war of aggression on the South?

        Or are you just reaching for any “Can I hit America with this” club that’s make you feel better about yourself on the cheap.

        Among the many problems with Progressives like yourself is the shockingly lazy way that you think about the world. Take for example the assertion that “this guy totally has all the right to his views.” Really? Nobody said he didn’t. What they’re saying is that if your views are that US troops and their families should be murdered for trying to get rid of a mass murderer and install what continues to be the one bright spot in the Middle East, taxpayers shouldn’t be footing the bill for the Commander in Chief to be dancing it up to your ungrateful idiot ass.

      There’s quite a few young koreans who’ve never had to deal with the whole “world is bad” reality–mostly due to the rabid anti-war left, and “give peace a chance crowd.” PSY is an example of this. My hubby’s(Japanese) second cousin is Korean, and it nearly came to blows with his kids a couple of years back when we were visiting. Until he not quite so gently explained to them, the only reason why they weren’t eating tree bark soup was because of the US.

  • WhiteHatBobby

    This protest took place after the 2002 armored vehicle accident when a US Army vehicle returning from a training exercise killed two teenage girls walking on the side of a road. The road is very narrow. The protests were rampant after that incident, when most people did not understand the circumstances in question.

    • TomJB

      That is a good point, and every newcomer to Korea (at least 2ID people) are taken to that very spot during in-processing and taught about what happened and about the follow-on problems from it. Unfortunately, even after 10 years of people being shown all the circumstances in question, and what has been done to avoid such things in the future, there are agitators who still assume the worst. On the other hand, many soldiers don’t do themselves any favors either, as far as public opinion goes, with how they conduct themselves on the subways and the streets…

    Just another wolve in sheep’s clothing that got to dumb sheep American pocketbooks via their mecca and messiahs of Hollywood! I wonder if the rest of the K-Pop world feels the same. As for this nerdball in shades, he’s K-Flop to me.

    • Blake Waymire

      Doubtful the rest of KPop feels the same way. For one, there is a surprisingly high number of KPop artists originally from the US. From their post-concert interviews, at the very least the artists from SM (this includes the heavy hitters: Girls’ Generation, SHINee, f(x), Super Junior, and BoA, among others) loved being in the US the past couple of years and were thankful for the reception they were given. And some of the artists are just so nice you wouldn’t think they’d wish death on anyone. Those who aren’t Psy tend to keep their political views to themselves, even when pressed for it. For example, recently Park Gyuri gave a non-answer on the question about an island group disputed by SK and Japan.

      For the record, some of the artists who are from the States originally are: Tiffany Hwang (born in SF, moved to Diamond Bar, Ca), Jessica and Krystal Jung (SF), Lee Soonkyu (born in LA, moved to Kuwait with her family shortly after birth, then to Seoul after the invasion by Iraq), Brian Joo (born LA, moved to Abescon, NJ), Nicole Jung (LA; no relation to Jessica and Krystal), Jay Park (Edmonds, Wa), Lena Park (LA), and Paul Baek (Shreveport, La).

      • Darrell G. Walton

        Thanks! Good to know. Being an old Vet, and not well versed in K- Pop, your info is good to know. Regardless of their entertainment or music genre, when these things are found out, they are nolonger worthy of our American dollars and patronage.

        • Blake Waymire

          I’ve been in the KPop fandom since Girls’ Generation released their Oh! album a couple years ago. It’s kind of hard to avoid some of the tidbits since they appear literally everywhere (advertisements, dramas, variety shows… they’re called “idol” groups because they’re trained to do basically everything). Speaking from the group I follow the most, Tiffany’s gone out of her way to help people without being asked, even likely saving someone’s life after he passed out drunk in the snow (she didn’t know him), Choi Sooyoung’s befriended Park Seungil and has helped him and his girlfriend collect money for research into Lou Gehrig’s disease, and is a spokesperson along with Tiffany and fellow member Seo Juhyun for retinitis pigmentosa research. All of them donated the proceeds from their first Japanese single to the Red Cross after the tsunami in Japan, and there’s quite a bit of evidence that they together donated over half a million personally and anonymously at the same time. Those are just a few examples. They’re far more than just nine pretty faces.

          I’m hoping the readers here who aren’t into it don’t judge KPop just by Psy’s past idiocies. The Korean industry is filled with genuinely good people who appreciate their status and use it for good when they can. That’s the main reason I still listen.

          If you want non-Psy, some good ones to look up are Pandora by KARA (more general pop, and though the dance is sexy, it’s nowhere near what US pop acts put out) and How Great is Your Love by Girls’ Generation (ballad written by Choi Sooyoung as a praise song).

      …….because that ALWAYS happens when a Republican accidentally says something which could be interpreted as a negative and is then broadcast over and over again and mocked and derided and used as gospel.

      Sure. Let’s give this guy the benefit of the doubt that he’s changed his position. When you believe Americans should be killed slowly and tortured, THAT’S something you change your mind about just a few years later because you sang a song about “gangnam style”. Totally legit.

      His “lyrics” ~

      Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives

      Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture

      Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers

      Kill them all slowly and painfully

      ~ And then, because he sang THESE meaningful gangnam lyrics, he changed his mind and now LOVES Americans:

      A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
      A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
      A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
      A girl with that kind of twist

      I’m a guy
      A guy who is as warm as you during the day
      A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
      A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
      That kind of guy

      When you voted for Obama, you were not, at least not intentionally, advocating the destruction of our country or harming human beings. Your thinking has evolved and led you in another direction. You did not profit monetarily either way. This guy either believes it, or he was saying these things because he thought it would put him on the right side of popular thought. He’s hiding it now, because he’s made a lot of money from the same people he advocated killiing. He’s despicable. You’re noble.

        I wasn’t able to vote in 2008. I was a High School Freshman. 2012 was the first election I voted in and I know I made the right choice, even if my country did not.

          You did make the right choice. Please stay involved and keep voting. You obviously paid attention to the actions of the Obama administration and its impact on you and others of your generation, and not the platitudes and empty promises of 2008. You’re way ahead of your peers. Sorry it was a tough lesson to learn, but at least you didn’t cast a vote in 2008 and have to regret being responsible for awarding power to Mr. Obama and his appointees.

            Thanks. I feel so duped and back stabbed. I fell for the lofty promises and great speeches and I didn’t really know much about politics or where I stood at the time on many issues. I sure did make up my mind quick though in the years after he was sworn in. Definitely involved a LOT now. I helped get my Aunt elected to the Board of Supervisors for the county I live in in VA, I know my Republican State Senator very well, I’m friends with one of his campaign managers and I spent dozens of hours at the phone banks, setting up signs, and attending and volunteering at the Romney event in Fishersville back in October too. Definitely proud of the work I did in this election, hopefully it will actually be meaningful next time around.

    As a AMERICAN of Korean descent and a ARMY and NAVY veteran I am angered by this. I have been posted to Korea and understand that if the US had not become involved in 1950 that the Republic of Korea today would not exist. The tech systems that ROK military has is either mostly US or based off US systems. I have seen personally how the older Korean people feel about US military compared to ones in my age group of 18-30yrs old. I think a another Korean War will change his mind, Just my two cent.

      Thank you for your service. I too was stationed in S.Korea, and the generation that lived through the Korean War understand what it means to have US/UN Forces stationed there. Unlike the ‘GenXers’ of S.Korea who live and lived on the gravy train of their parents/grandparents that rebuilt S.Korea from the total wreck it was after the cessation of the War of 1950. One can easily see the mindset of the younger Koreans in their TV shows/movies, so many are about sex, power, life w/o consequence…kind of like most younger Americans today. History that is forgotten is usually repeated !!

      • Winsie Lee

        S Korea has indeed a lot of influence from America, but a lot of their dramas do not include sex! They usually feature more committed relationships. Sexual elements in movies are usually made to make sure that profits would be made, aimed toward older audiences, and provide some sort of sexual information.

        • autdrew4real

          True! Totally got hooked on Korean dramas. Watched “Boys over flowers ” with my kids & never had any sex scenes despite being about high school kids.

        • http://bpsitrep.blogspot.com/ BpSitRep

          I’ve watched a few K-Drama’s about the Korean War, and really enjoyed them for the historical values/facts and Korean point of view. Profit does propel film makers to make trash, like the latest reality TV show about kids in West Virginia. Most shows we watch are J-Drama’s, and I’ve learned a lot from them, unlike just bad influence tripe from American shows.

      Agree! I spent three yrs in Seoul with my family. We had the honor of being able to attend the sixtieth anniversary commemoration of the “Frozen Chosin”. Everyone should know & appreciate the unreal hardships endured by us & the Korean people. The elderly thanked us all the time. The rebuilding & amazing growth these people created a “miracle on the Han “yet the sad thing is how this isn’t being passed on to many in the younger generation. They have been terrible incidents, certainly, but we go above & beyond in trying to smooth things. I wish the Korean govt did as much to solve crimes against foreigners, up to & including rape & murder. Korea is an amazing place & most of the people are very nice.
      I have to also agree re their military. Despite being required to serve two yrs if you are a male, its kind of common knowledge that if we left, they are screwed. In a way, us being there has given then an excuse for not having a better, more expensive military. However, that doesn’t apply to R.O.K Marines. Those guys are awesome!

    All of you need to get off your high horses! First of all this song was released during a time when US/Korean relations were at a boiling point due to behavior of AMERICAN soldiers toward Korean citizenry, namely the raping of two Korean teenagers! . It was also the time of the GITMO scandal. You are all so quick to jump on the bandwagon without checking the facts. South Korea was pissed, The people were pissed and so was PSY. WTF is wrong with being angry about something like that?? He had a moment of poor judgement (looking back on it now) but that doesnt give any of you the right to crucify him over something that was 10 years ago. If anyone in this thread had never done a wrong thing in their life.. PLEASE SPEAK UP NOW..

    • WilliamAmos

      People are allowed to express their outrage at Psy as well. It isnt a one sided affair where he gets a pass and can say whatever he wants. And then tell people they can’t disagree with him is very hypocritical.

      • InternationalKpopNoona Channel

        Theres a difference between being justifiably outraged when you have all the facts and when you attack someone with no facts. People are to quick to give an opinion without doing and real research into the matter. Some of these comments are as racist, if not even more so, that what PSY implied. I think the most messed up part of this so called “reporting” is that the writer uses a small piece of information to stir up the proverbial hornets nest and doesnt give all the facts.

        • NRPax

          Not bad. This thread has only been open four hours and someone is breaking out the accusations of racism. Maybe folks have been oversleeping today.

        • WilliamAmos

          So did or didnt psy say the words ? You are trying to justify them that is fine but I dont see the justification you want to try and make. The words are repugnant and should be pointed out.

        • NCRelite

          Listen, Americans gave their lives to defend the freedoms of his countrymen. In fact, if it weren’t for their sacrifices he would probably be eating grass sandwiches in some gulag or worse. My father was a medic in Korea, helping to defend the 38th parallel. He saw people lose their lives and limbs on hospital beds, folks with 3rd degree burns all over their bodies, shrapnel wounds etc. Perhaps PSY now realizes how stupid he was, but he really should’ve gotten in front of this scandal. The people will form their own opinions and you can defend him until you’re blue in the face but ultimately the public will decide whether they want to tolerate MC Kim Jong Un any longer.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002109532283 Jillane Kent

      So that excuses a song that illustrates fantasies of murder of all soldiers and those that love them? Sorry, guy. Moral relativism and heinous, but limited acts does not excuse such behavior.

    However, there will be at least as many Americans – of the self-loathing stripe – who will embrace this guy, and defend him from his detractors. I can hear them now: blame Bush for PSY’s anger and “PSY Rap.”

    First of all I think you have your facts wrong. Abu Ghraib wasn’t until 2004.

You would be pissed off also if South Koreans ran over two American kids in the US. I think this is taken out of context. The protest concerts started in 2002 and 2003 which would coincide with the accident in 2002. They South Koreans still protest that awful day on the anniversary every year.

    If Communism had prevailed he would have never had the opportunities he enjoys today. He’d probably be singing on a street corner for spare rice and never travel out of his country like he does now.

        You’re right…you’re acting like a victim being wrong criticized RIGHT NOW, idiot. Your hypocrisy is so ming-numbing in that you talk about “audacity,” yet South Korea owes its FREEDOM and its very way of life to American troops, dumbass.

        It’s not my fault you’re getting all butt-hurt because your life is so pathetic as to worship a ridiculous no-talent pop star!! Since you hate America so much, go be butt-hurt somewhere else.

          So I’m acting like the victim for asking you Amuricans to face the facts? Just face the fact that you’re no longer the saviour of the world. Talk about no-talent..America is the haven for no talent popstars who struts around the stage half naked to sell records singing about drugs and sex to corrupt the world…gone are the days when America actually makes contribution to humanity…When will you ever stop dwelling on your grandpa’s ancient contributions to humanity and really stop being the global parasite that you have become. I’m sure Korea thanked your grandpas for their contribution and unfortunately, the current america is a mess…so deal with reality and stop living in your past. I’m sure you’re going to live in denial and throw random insults back at me because this is what you’re about, America….DENIAL.

          • cgraham77

            You talk like a child. How old are you?

            We are talking about events that occurred in the last GENERATION, you idiot. This is not “ancient” history. Although to a child, I would imagine it would seem that way.

            Also, we are are talking the difference between North Korea and South Korea. Do you understand the difference?

            The savior of the world? You can throw around as many strawman arguments as you can muster. It doesn’t change reality (something you might want to familiarize yourself with). Global parasite? Trust me, buddy, if it were up to me, we’d pull all the foreign aid WE provide to OTHER countries.

            I’m not going to bother with these irrelevant childlish squabbles about whether I know the diff btw north/south korea in vain hope that you can win an argument..most people outside of America actually knows the difference…Again, how many more years are you going to wave your grandpa’s contribution in everyone’s faces?…don’t forget your contributions to WWII which happened before that. Give me an exact expiry date for this 60 year old favor you’ve done for the world so you can stop using that as a cover for every atrocity. Yes, you put alot of foreign aid to provide for other countries…great…so does plenty of other countries…so I guess that makes you feel very righteous about all the killing and all the stealing then since you’ve pre-paid for it with foreign aid…..It seems like you believe that America is blameless because as long as you’ve made contributions in the last 60 years, then America is god…what a joke!

          • cgraham77

            Get off your sanctimonious high horse. You talk about what the US has produced in the music industry. What the hell has CANADA produced?? Justin Beiber? LOL!!

            And as far as global contributions, politically and militarily, Canada has always been in the US’s shadow! No wonder you have sour grapes. But I actually don’t have a problem with Canada…only idiots like you.

            You have yet to answer a single question I’ve posed, but instead try to deflect with nonsense quibble about “winning,” (BTW, since you’re slow on the uptake, my question about North and South Korea was RHETORICAL, illustrating that you clearly don’t even understand what the argument is about)…

            You’ve avoided the central point of this argument…do you think you are blameless for your atrocities because you’ve pre-paid it with foreign aid and a war from 60 years ago? You managed to completely miss the central argument and went ahead with slinging insults at Canada. You’re sounding like a butthurt 4 year old….. We have plenty of great musicians on our radio, America just happened to pick up on the worst of them. At least we make mainly positive music and we don’t have whores, drug addicts and gangsters to sell our music to the younger generation.

            We all know about the Korean war..we all can tell the difference between the north and the south..don’t you even try to derail this debate so you can avoid the central argument.

            It doesn’t matter how old I am and I don’t care how old you are.
            All I can see is a man acting like a 4 year old in denial. With your low IQ, you probably think having the last word and throwing insults like a child will win you the argument and that’s all the comfort you’re looking for..but the central argument is you’ve fucked up and insulting Canada won’t change that.

          • cgraham77

            The central point to the argument??
            It’s called a STRAWMAN, you moron!!

            Insults to Canada? I was responding to your SANCTIMONIOUS drivel about American music, which you continue on your current tirade.

            Butthurt 4 year old? Why is it that whenever libs try to argue, they simply make poor attempts at trying to flip the script. You’re even now using words I even used against you. Is that the best you can do? Not very original or creative. But I wouldn’t expect originality or creativity coming from you. Who’s the one with the low IQ? LOOOL! You can’t even come up with your own insults! Friggin hilarious.

            Far from derailing…the WHOLE POINT is about the difference between the 2 cultures, you moron! What the hell do you think the Korean War was about?!

            Your ignorance is mind-numbing.

            Fun to see a low IQ Amurican child losing his mind here. You’re just a butthurt American who can’t deal with a deserved criticism of your troops. All that crap about a Korean singer’s hypocrisy on criticizing your American GI is nothing more than an excuse to exempt yourself from blame. American soliders fighting the Korean war 60 years ago has nothing to do with what the soldiers are doing today. It doesn’t mean you should get a freepass for every future atrocity and it doesn’t make the criticism hypocritical. Nothing more than a child who is looking for excuses to get out of criticism.

            You are the one who raised the subject on TALENT. NOT ME.
            When you call someone a no talent, make sure you look at your country’s pop artist first. Don’t even act butthurt and try to bring Canada or Justin Bieber into this. You love the shittiest crap from us, so deal with it.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    I fought in Korea.
    The kpop guy previously takes us to task saying that there’s a difference between people speaking when they have all the facts and when they don’t— by implication (and this is unclear) that the protesters either didn’t have all the facts and we do so we should just laugh it off or that the protesters didn’t have all the facts and we do so we should laugh it off.

    My question is: why?

    Irregardless of the knowledge level, why should anyone cut them slack? Did all of the solders do what the few supposedly did? No.

    Are there no Korean drivers who hit people?

    Are there no Korean thieves, rapists, or murderers?

    Are the Korean people open-handed and giving to absolute strangers who aren’t asian?

    Yet— until the Black Emperor took power and started stripping the average American of their wealth, we gave more to help disaster victims of any race or people even those who counted themselves our enemies than any other people on earth.

    But, go ahead, make excuses for people that are such pus-filled pustules of hate that, not only do they yell about torture-killing solders, but innocent women and children to boot. As if there’s ever an excuse for that.

    The same with Progressives, btw. They call us hate-filled, the we conservatives are the ones glorying about raping & murdering the children of our opponents– Progressives. We didn’t even poke fun at them until the hate projected at us became so huge that some sort of response seemed required to keep sanity.

    We are the only nation on earth that has answered the call to help when a country’s own produces a dictator. Oh, we had other reasons. I won’t deny that.

    But, in eras past, when a country put down rulers in another country the victor levied remuneration of some form or another. We do not and did not.

    WWII happened in a large part b/c of the extreme economic penalties leveled by France & Britain on Germany– which created a fertile ground for Hitler.

    China, Korea, etc did the same to Japan.

    To our shame, while we tried to slow these things down, we didn’t try very hard– another Wilsonian-philosophy legacy.

    After the defeat of Japan we didn’t strip them of all they had– as was the Victor’s Custom. Instead we tried to grow a friendship.

    We spent blood and treasure to help keep So.Korea able to choose its own destiny. We still maintain bases there.

    Why Kpop? What do we get out of it, seeing that we’ve been making friends with China for the last 50yrs?

    After we left the Philippines at the behest of the Filipino Muckity-Mucks (something the average Filipino didn’t want) every other country that had US bases begged us to stay.

    Personally, I think we should just dismantle all our bases overseas, leaving bare earth, and bring all our people home.

    Any country that’d prefer we leave’em alone we should— even if they subsequently change their mind. It is like people who throw rotten eggs at firemen — until their house is on fire.

    We could survive alone, if we shrank the Federal Government and junked industry-killing over-regulation wholesale. Recent discoveries of the existence of lodes of most of the necessary tech-industry rare earths on U.S. soil make this possible.

    That way everyone would get what they want. No more hated American Presence in their countries, no more meddling in the affairs of sovereign nations, and we’d no longer waste the lives of our young people defending those with short memories.

    • gatogatogato

      ever hear of a protest song? why get so bent out of shape over song lyrics? were you this outraged when you saw the photos at abu ghraib? when you heard about the CIA torture program? how about invading a country on false pretenses? i don’t blame the soldiers who carried out the acts – i blame the chain of command.

      if you were indeed outraged by American abuse of power, then go ahead and get pissed about a pop singer’s song lyrics.

      from a military point of view, the idea that we should dismantle our bases is silly. unlike any other country in the world, we have strategic advantage to attack just about anywhere. these were the true spoils of war from every conflict we’ve emerged victorious and an excellent long term strategy for effective national security. the problem is that we saw under GWB what happens when you abuse that power. the only deterrent is nuclear weapons. why do you think we invaded iraq but not north korea? why are we so insistent on iran not getting the bomb?

      personally, i tend to lean towards the ron paul style of foreign affairs as you similarly describe. save the money, bring the troops home, and rebuild our own crumbling country. the military and its private sector lobbies are not going to let that happen and that’s a major reason why a guy like ron paul couldn’t get elected – too much money against him.

      whether you like it or not, we now live in a global economy. the developed world is so intertwined that we can not close our shutters to the world. the private sector would not allow it to happen (mcdonald’s exists in 119 countries) and it’s pure fantasy to think otherwise. only a totalitarian state could enforce such measures – ironically, it’s what North Korea has done quite effectively. would you base your model for a country on North Korea!?

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        @gatogatogato:
        That’s a silly comparison.
        You can close your doors w/o becoming a dictatorship… infact, that was implicit in the ‘art of my comment that mentioned dumping industry-killing over-regulation.

        Sorry, sonny. Try again… but before you do, you might want to consider:

        There are precious few advantages to being almost 97yrs old… but one us breadth of experience.

        I remember how much Libery qas lost. I kniw that this nation, which is the size of all of Europe, plus some more, has more than enough of everything it needs to survive— except Liberty.

        As forNo.Korea, it hasn’t closed itself off, it is a client state of Red China…

        So, since Dingleberry is indenturing our descendants to them, I guess we are following the No.Korean model already.

        • gatogatogato

          How do you enforce keeping those doors closed? Liberty implies that the door is always open – and that you can freely enter or leave. Liberty implies that our borders are open to refugees and immigrants. Liberty implies that businesses are free to operate globally. Liberty implies that citizens can breathe clean air and drink clean water. That last one is the most important and that’s why we have regulations on business. That’s why these regulations are constitutional.

          The greatest period of US isolationism was after WWI and many historians lay the blame for Hitler’s rise to power at the hands of the isolationism you yearn for. It was another period where we turned our backs on immigrants because jobs were scarce. We shut our doors to Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany – our own Congress enacted laws to keep the Jews out. Now, with the global economy and our multi-national businesses, there’s no way we could conceivably cut ourselves off from the world. You are right that it would be possible to be self reliant, but it’s just not feasible. Isolationism and Liberty are in many ways polar opposites. You can build that big wall, but don’t forget that it will also hold you captive on the inside. Ron Paul made that excellent point when debating building a wall between the US & Mexico.

          The cold war is over. China is communist in name only as can be seen from the rise of the upper class in that country – every year they shed more of the old ways, but there are still some old fogies clinging to the past. Their citizens are free to come and go as they please. Foreigners can visit the country. I’d be shocked if they didn’t have free elections within the next 20 years. If you want to see what lack of regulations will do to a city, try breathing the air in Shanghai or Beijing. Take a look at the crippled hands of a Foxconn factory worker or the suicide nets hanging below the rooftops. Unregulated industry is the true threat to individual liberty. Could we reform some regulations in this country? Yes. The system should be ever evolving to stay current, but regulations are absolutely necessary to protect individual liberty. Look at how many individuals had their liberty violated due to the under regulated financial industry just a few years ago. Millions of hard working Americans lost their jobs when companies could no longer find credit to keep the lights on during a slow period. Smart regulation would have prevented the entire mess.

          The best way to level the playing field is not to lower safety standards or wages for our workers, but apply pressure on other industrialized countries to raise their standards. The short term solution is to panic and slash regulations – the long term solution is to build on our status as the most productive work force in the world to lure the visionary companies back to our shores.

          Thank you for your service to this country, and I wish you many more years of good health.

            @gatogatogato:

            Thank you for your wish of a long life of many years. I recognize it as Pro Forma– but, still, it is nice of you to say. Unfortunately, if the Oncologist who was in charge of my case is any good at estimation, I won’t see Spring.

            But I did enjoy the thoughtfulness you put into your reply.

            I know that there’re now blaming isolationist for Hitler. I saw that bit of historical rewrite start almost immediately.

            All I can say is read the treaty Germany signed, then do the math over the reparations that were being squeezed out.

            Also, you can have Liberty w/o erasing your borders (which is what an “all comers” policy is), and control of the rate at which people enter and become citizens is absolutely critical to Liberty now— though I grant you at one time that wasn’t the case.

            Look. In rawest terms (because I’ve been reading the forum most of the late afternoon and my strength fails) The United States of America was unique among nations in that it was based, not on a shared ethnicity nor origin, etc, but on a shared ideal.

            Those ideals are set forth in the Proper Preamble to The Constitution of The United States of America (conceptually speaking): that being The Declaration of Independence.

            The ideals of Liberty are incompatible with those of Socialism. They are so, not because I say so, but because they are diametrically opposed by their nature. To understand why, get yourself a good book like ‘5000 year Leap’ by Skousen.

            This fact was used to our destruction by no longer teaching those principles, dilution of historical knowledge relative to it, and changing the “melting pot”, where we kept the best of every culture to “tossed salad” where the everything was kept. Balkanization was the purpose behind that.

            Yeah, I know someone, (even if it isn’t you) will yell conspiracy nut!

            So? The people who engineered this over the generations wrote books, tracts & pamphlets outlining this strategy and describing events pretty accurately, all things considered.

            And the U.S. itself is the result of a successful conspiracy.

            So was the USSR, NAZI Germany, Rome… I could go on.

            Anyway. I’m very tired, so I’ll say good evening to you.

    • Its True

      Blaming Obama for wealth inequality, you conservatives are legitimate jokes.

      • doc255

        Typical liberal. You ignore 99% of this veteran’s very legitimate and well thought out post and focus on one phrase, which is equally legitimate. He didn’t say that Obama is SOLELY responsible for any “income equality”. He just mentioned that he is participating in it. And just so you know, in the past most “income equality” was the direct result of “effort equality”, not the result of some nefarious government scheme. Not so much anymore…..

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    I fought in Korea.
    The kpop guy previously takes us to task saying that there’s a difference between people speaking when they have all the facts and when they don’t— by implication (and this is unclear) that the protesters either didn’t have all the facts and we do so we should just laugh it off or that the protesters didn’t have all the facts and we do so we should laugh it off.

    My question is: why?

    Irregardless of the knowledge level, why should anyone cut them slack? Did all of the solders do what the few supposedly did? No.

    Are there no Korean drivers who hit people?

    Are there no Korean thieves, rapists, or murderers?

    Are the Korean people open-handed and giving to absolute strangers who aren’t asian?

    Yet— until the Black Emperor took power and started stripping the average American of their wealth, we gave more to help disaster victims of any race or people even those who counted themselves our enemies than any other people on earth.

    But, go ahead, make excuses for people that are such pus-filled pustules of hate that, not only do they yell about torture-killing solders, but innocent women and children to boot. As if there’s ever an excuse for that.

    The same with Progressives, btw. They call us hate-filled, the we conservatives are the ones glorying about raping & murdering the children of our opponents– Progressives. We didn’t even poke fun at them until the hate projected at us became so huge that some sort of response seemed required to keep sanity.

    We are the only nation on earth that has answered the call to help when a country’s own produces a dictator. Oh, we had other reasons. I won’t deny that.

    But, in eras past, when a country put down rulers in another country the victor levied remuneration of some form or another. We do not and did not.

    WWII happened in a large part b/c of the extreme economic penalties leveled by France & Britain on Germany– which created a fertile ground for Hitler.

    China, Korea, etc did the same to Japan.

    To our shame, while we tried to slow these things down, we didn’t try very hard– another Wilsonian-philosophy legacy.

    After the defeat of Japan we didn’t strip them of all they had– as was the Victor’s Custom. Instead we tried to grow a friendship.

    We spent blood and treasure to help keep So.Korea able to choose its own destiny. We still maintain bases there.

    Why Kpop? What do we get out of it, seeing that we’ve been making friends with China for the last 50yrs?

    After we left the Philippines at the behest of the Filipino Muckity-Mucks (something the average Filipino didn’t want) every other country that had US bases begged us to stay.

    Personally, I think we should just dismantle all our bases overseas, leaving bare earth, and bring all our people home.

    Any country that’d prefer we leave’em alone we should— even if they subsequently change their mind. It is like people who throw rotten eggs at firemen — until their house is on fire.

    We could survive alone, if we shrank the Federal Government and junked industry-killing over-regulation wholesale. Recent discoveries of the existence of lodes of most of the necessary tech-industry rare earths on U.S. soil make this possible.

    That way everyone would get what they want. No more hated American Presence in their countries, no more meddling in the affairs of sovereign nations, and we’d no longer waste the lives of our young people defending those with short memories.

    • $4252790

      (1) Opposing the war in Iraq is fine. Psy wanted to torture and murder our soldiers.
      (2) There’s no U.S. “occupation” of South Korea, dummy. Our troops are there, at the invitation of South Korea, to help deter an attack by the most brutal regime on earth, which is 31 miles north of Gangnam.
      (3) Your post makes liberals look ignorant, arrogant, and anti-American. I’m offended on behalf of my friends on the left, who are none of those things.

It is commonly understood and used as a mild derogatory term against “white” people; Thus, it is not uncommon to see Korean people calling white people such as French or Swedish “Yankee(s)”.

    This Twitchy article suggests no such thing. How you got that from
    reading it is beyond me except to say your claims seem to be pure
    projection on your part. I, however, see no proof in your reply that can or would verify your claim that the song in question was driven by some random accident involving American soldiers who, btw, were cleared of wrong doing by a Seoul court. Some of that projection I referred to, it seems.
    There is no need to refer to this incident, whatsoever, or for Twitchy
    to have even been aware of it, for any reason, since it has no apparent
    bearing on the article itself which clearly concerns the song and
    author’s involvement, not the motivation behind it. Regardless of
    whether it was or was not a motivating factor though, the incident in
    question could not and does not justify the evil and hypocritical nature
    of these lyrics by a hypocritical, despicable, vile little coward
    masquerading as some sort of innocuous pop star (duly noting the fact that putting the terms innocuous & pop music together creates quite a stark oxymoron).

  • Streetiebird

    While I’m doing Twitchy Staff’s homework for them:

    From 2003: http://fpc.state.gov/documents/organization/27530.pdf

    Anti-American sentiments have long been present in South Korean society, particularly during the 1970s and 1980s. After the end of military rule they were largely confined to highly ideological groups, particularly student organizations, that generally operated on the political margins in Korea. In the late 1990s, however, criticisms of United States policy moved into the mainstream, a move that also has made anti-Americanism less ideological and more issue-specific. The criticisms range widely and include accusations that the Bush Administration is not listening to South Koreans in general, that the Bush Administration is blocking rapprochement between North and South Korea, that U.S. forces in South Korea are not sufficiently accountable for crimes they commit in South Korea, that the United States is covering up alleged atrocities committed during the Korean War, and that the South Korean government too often caters to U.S. interests.

    Underlying these sentiments is the declining sense of threat that South Koreans feel from North Korea. This trend was evident in the late 1990s, and has deepened since the North-South Korean summit in June 2000.

    Two events in 2002 caused the critiques to coalesce into massive anti-U.S. demonstrations:

    President Bush’s inclusion of North Korea in his “axis of evil” countries, and the June 2002 killing of two Korean schoolgirls by a U.S. military vehicle.

    PSY is only issuing an apology because he was found out. It’s obviously his true view point. As for the Obama’s, I’m sure they love the fact that PSY is anti-american, and will embrace his views as their own.

  • des111168

    If the apology is sincere, we should accept it. And perhaps he’s really not anti-American anymore. After all, 8 million dollars US in profits can make him love America pretty quick.

  • Chase C.

    How people are reacting to this is a joke. He apologized. We all have made mistakes. Jesus teaches forgiveness.

  • Nonya

    Appears as if obama has made another friend

    Translated: “I USED to hate all you American people and wished you dead, …but that was BEFORE, when I didn’t make money from you….”

    I really didnt want to hate this guy. but mayyyybbbeee…..maybe he just knew whatever crap he was told … and then when he came to america for whatev, he was like….hmmm….america is pretty cool, and americans are pretty cool….im sorry? Poeple only know what they are told and taught,until they find out for themselves. so maybe we have a super bad rap over there or something, just like certain countries have a bad rap with us, and he learned otherwise and apologized. i dont know! aw man. this sucks. please dont be an america’hating douche PSY! But since you apologized, I think i MIGHT forgive you, (prove it). Music (and money :( ) truly is the univerdal language. who would ahve thought that we loved your song we dont understand so much! :)

    • http://www.facebook.com/kyla.froehlich Kyla Froehlich

      I bet he said all that crap its said…around 8 years ago…and when this got famous in america ha was thinking “ohhhh shit.”. Sorry I dont have a more educated thing to say :) about politics and war and Koreo and all, like someone said below about the Gen Xers, we unfortunately dont know, and apperently the ones who teach us (not talking about parents, talking about public school) either dont know or dont care to teach us about things like this. we all owe it to ourselves to find out! So please dont rip rip my head off with the comments :)

    Got in a little hometown jam
    So they put a rifle in my hand
    Sent me off to a foreign land
    To go and kill the yellow man
    Born in the USA…

    He should run for office as a Dem. Knows only to apologize after he gets caught.

  • wkstat

    A phony apology to increase his bottom line

  • Todd

    This is a great analysis of the accident in Korea and media/public reaction.

    As for Psy, that’s one of the better media apologies I’ve seen, compared to the “I’m sorry if you were offended” type

  • stuckinIL4now

    Sure, he’s forever sorry until just after his performance is finished and then all bets are off. He’d make a great libturd rep and probably could get elected from a stupid place like CA or NY or Crook County.

    mabey obama will bow to him to

    Well of course the Mocha Messiah wants him to come perform. They actually agree with each other.

  • Linda O’Grady

    He is apologizing because he just signed on with the people who promote Justin Bieber and is trying to break into the American Market. Is he really sorry or does he just want to make money? Will he donate to one of the funds to support soldiers or is it a hollow apology?

  • Cassi Cummings

    The lyrics that are written in this article are not directed towards all Americans or even all American soldiers. They are directed at soldiers who performed torture on captives and those that ordered the torture of captives. I am an American who supports our troops, but I do not support torture of captives. PSY apologized to those who misinterpreted his lyrics which were very clear: ” Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives / Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture / Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers / Kill them all slowly and painfully ” These lyrics are obviously not directed at the troops in general, or at the families of the troops in general, they are directed at a very specific group of troops and their families. I don’t see how this makes him anti-American, this just makes him anti-torture. Now, if he has other words, written or spoken publicly that say otherwise I would retract this statement, but based on the information in this specific article, he didn’t say anything that should cause this much of an uproar.

  • Cassi Cummings

    The lyrics posted in this article are not anti-American or anti-American troop lyrics. These are anti-torture lyrics. In fact they are very clear: “Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives / Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture / Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers / Kill them all slowly and painfully” This message is saying that he is disgusted with those who have blood on their hands for torturing or ordering someone else to torture captives. This message is saying that he wants those with blood on their hands to hurt and be tortured as they did to others and he wants their loved ones hurt the same way. No where in these lyrics does it say “all Americans” or “All of the American Troops”. In fact he was very specific “Those Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives” and “Yankees who ordered them to torture”. Very specific. I happen to be an American who supports our Troops, even though I may not support everything they are ordered to do. However, I do not support torture at all. Ever. Does that make me anti-American too?

    Fuck you PSY

    I know this will get lost in this swirl o’comments, but just wanted to point out a few things.

    If you have paid attention over the past 50+ years, you will realize there is ALWAYS a segment of South Koreans who protest the U.S. military being in Korea. I’ve cried from the tear gas, have you? They’ve gone from college students yelling to pop stars singing. Same shit, different medium.

    There has always been this dichotomy of
    people (some S. Koreans, usually younger ones)
    protesting the thing (US + its military)
    that allows them the right to protest (‘cuz they’re not N. Korea=> they are FREE).

    It appears that Psy
    changed his mind (or at least stopped bitching)
    after he served his mandatory 2 years (more like 19-21 months)
    in the Korean Army (which he didn’t want to do at first),
    just like most Koreans do, after they or their loved ones serve.

    Don’t worry about Psy.
    Worry about the ones that serve their 2 years and become MORE radical afterward.

    “limits to what language is appropriate” –so the sentiments are fine, just the langauge …liberals really like to think they’re fooling somebody…

  • arrow2010

    Come on guys, he apologized.

  • Lance Turner

    What is the big deal. The president and his wife say bad things about America and dislike America. Psy apologized, while, Michelle and Barack still haven’t apologized.

    • Cranky Crab

      Your trolling sucks

  • J.N. Ashby

    To be fair to PSY, I hate the Yankees as well. Buying all their WS titles and what not.

  • Cochise

    I cant believe he still walks + talks! I will never 4give any1 4 being so ignorant! I guess if he could be man enough 2 take up arms + hit the front line, I could, but we no he will never be man enough!

  • Amytan999

    I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent
    months – including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for
    them – and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology. While
    it’s important we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory
    and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music I try to give
    people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that though music,
    our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity
    and I hope that you will accept my apology…..

    … and yet he never says he doesn’t advocate the torture of American servicemen and women. Something tells me when this guy performs hes only performing for himself and of course the cash. I wish every host on every show he has appeared on tv would make a public statement about PSY. They he won’t be able to hide behind them with soulless apologies…
