Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty sickening displays. And this scene from Singapore ranks right up there:

Kim Jong-un presides over a starving populace and work camps. He is responsible for countless deaths. That’s nothing to applaud.
People *cheering* Kim Jong Un’s entrance — and shouting “Mr. Kim, Mr. Kim!” as though he is a celebrity — is a thing that is happening right now in Singapore. Unclear if said people have ever read the news, ever. https://t.co/hmKbJaKgvW

It’s possible, of course, that these cheerleaders are being forced to perform. It wouldn’t be unprecedented.
Lots of “plants” in that audience. Remember the NK cheer team? Literally worth their lives to not make mistakes.

Are we sure that these people aren't from North Korea and coerced into cheering under threat of death or harm to their families? Just thinking back to the Olympics "cheerleaders"

Either way, it’s just disgusting.
Why do they cheer this murderous dictator?

Nothing like cheering a mass murderer

During the Olympics, much of the international — and our — media swooned over Kim and his sister. They effectively gave him and his regime free propaganda. They helped feed this beast (while his own people starved).
Kim's already won. https://t.co/iZdn7ggrUE
