Sometimes I measure how great a person is by how much the left loathes them. Suffice it to say, Mike Pence isn’t popular among liberal grum tublets. Possibly because he isn’t a childless cat lady who channels her misery into policy. The left’s latest complaint came after he refused to stand and applaud for North Korea at the Olympics. SJWs now care about people standing for anthems. Just not our anthem.
Mike’s reasoning had to do with principle, so naturally, leftists were befuddled. Luckily for them, he explained his choice in depth at CPAC.
“The era of strategic patience is over,” he said of the North Korean regime. The crowd boos as Pence references the media “fawning” over dictator Kim Jong Un’s sister during the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.
He says that the U.S. government has sanctioned Kim’s sister for abetting North Korea’s human rights atrocities. “For those who think I should have stood and cheered for the North Koreans, I say the U.S. doesn’t stand with murderous dictatorships we stand up to murderous dictatorships,” Pence says to loud applause.
The media was taken in by Kim Jong Un’s sister. Who probably has a name, but isn’t important enough to warrant a Google search. Plus, methinks it isn’t much of a stretch to assume Kim Jong banned everyone else in his family from having names. Possibly to avoid sibling rivalry and the like, since he’s an insecure wimplet (see Kim Jong-un Just Banned Sarcasm in North Korea. No, Seriously…). So, for now, we’ll just call her Kim Jong Un’s sister.
While liberal media doted on Kim’s sister, Mike Pence opted not to celebrate the dictatorly wench.
Liberal media ignores the facts Mike Pence discussed at CPAC. Instead, they’ve retrieved a few gross non-stories. Much like a cat brings home unwanted carcasses. Most of these do-not-wants include the Russia fantasy and now North Korean love affair.
It’s always good to see the media called out, but what makes this speech memorable is Mike Pence’s clear dedication to our country. He’s not trying to score feel-good points. He cares not if his American principles offend North Korea or leftists for that matter. Bonus points if they do though.
