The coven at The View discussed the Olympics in Pyeongchang. Then they called out VP Pence for ‘protesting’ North Korea at the Olympics. Here’s the 411.
idiots progressive women of The View are expressing a sentiment that is popular online — Vice President Pence is a hypocrite for refusing to stand for the joint-Korean team at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Peyongchang, South Korea.
[UPDATE: He’s also being called out for ‘disrespecting’ Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong whose high ranking title in the regime is Director of The Workers Party’s Propaganda and Agitation Department. Charming.]
Let’s take a look at what the hullabaloo is all about and why it’s completely wrong.
The anti-Trump and anti-Pence crowd are saying that because VP Pence made a big deal about leaving the Colts game in October because of the anthem protests then posting this:
I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.
— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) October 8, 2017
From the video:
HOSTIN: I thought that Mike Pence said that it was inappropriate to make political statements at sporting events? Wasn’t he that guy who walked out of the football game because people were kneeling and not standing?
JOY BEHAR: Well he would say that’s in their own country is what he would say to that
HOSTIN: But he’s representing the United States of America isn’t he?
GOLDBERG: We have to be respectful because what we do know about politicians is they end up sitting with people that you and I say well, why are they sitting with them? So if you’re in Korea, you need to stand up. You need to stand up and show respect.
Proving yet again that I have wiped things off of my shoes that are smarter than Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, and Whoopi Goldberg combined.
Kudos again to Meghan McCain for willingly subjecting herself to this insanity day after day and dropkicking the truth into the cesspool of estrogen-poisoned, leftist groupthink.
No, no, no you harpies! VP Pence doesn’t need to stand. Here’s why:
1. The NFL kneelers and VP Pence’s protest are not the same.
Vice President Pence isn’t a citizen of North Korea. Or South Korea.
Refusing to stand for your own flag and anthem is different than refusing to acknowledge propaganda being pushed by a murderous, dictatorial regime constantly threatening war for their own political ends.
Because that is exactly what this is — Propaganda.
It’s likely that the entire reason that Kim Jong-un sent a delegation to the Olympics in the first place is that the sanctions that President Trump insisted on for the escalation in threats made by Pyongyang are finally hurting them.
As a matter of fact, CNN reported that North Korea asked South Korea for oil to fuel the return of their Olympic delegation.
Kim Jong-un also realized that it was a prime opportunity for the world’s media to see a ‘softer’ side of North Korea — in essence, he is using the event for propaganda for the entire world and the majority of the media is falling for it. That’s why he sent his sister — also because the dead family members that he had murdered were unable to attend — it plays to the sympathy of the progressives, especially the feminists.
2. North Korea is a sh*thole country run by a sh*t regime.
Now, I know that it isn’t politically correct to call countries ‘sh*tholes’ even if it is true, but can we at least agree that living in North Korea is bad?
There is no freedom of speech or thought, there is mass malnutrition, there are forced-labor camps, no electricity or running water for the majority, no freedom of religion, no free and fair elections, and don’t even get me started on human rights.
Oh, and for those saying that this is the ‘road to reunification’, that has always been the plan — reunification of Korea under the leadership of a dictatorial Kim Jong-un.
Many in the Media (D) are falling over themselves to praise Kim Jong-un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong. She’s a ‘princess‘, ‘North Korea’s Ivanka‘, and she’s ‘won the gold medal for diplomacy‘ because she is ‘stealing the show.’ That’s not who she is. She’s Kim Jong-un’s kid sister, a close confidante and a senior official in the regime. That makes her complicit.
Remember who these people are.
Jake Tapper is one of the few big names in the Media (D) calling out his pro-NoKo colleagues:
If you hate US leaders more than you hate the Kim Jong-un regime, you really need to read up on North Korea.

3. North Korea is keeping a close eye on every member of the delegation that they have sent and punishes those that ‘misbehave’.
The North Koreans attending the games are closely watched by guards to make sure that they don’t defect.
Security guards will be keeping guard over athletes at all times to ensure no-one defects to the South, a former North Korean police officer told the network.
Unlike most athletes who bunk with teammates, North Koreans will share their rooms with minders who will be closely monitoring their every move.
Security will follow them everywhere they go, including the bathroom, as any defections will cause embarrassment to Kim Jong-un’s regime and spark a diplomatic crisis.
They will also make note of who athletes speak to and report any suspicious activity back to Pyongchang.

In 2006, 21 members of the Cheer Squad that had attended international sporting events had been sent to forced-labor camps for speaking about what they saw in South Korea.
Twenty-one members of North Korean cheering squads who traveled to South Korea for international sports events are being held in a prison camp for talking about what they saw in the South, a news report said yesterday…
…In 2002, Pyongyang sent hundreds of female cheerleaders to the Asian Games in South Korea’s Busan, where their tightly synchronized routines drew worldwide attention. The North sent similar cheering squads to South Korea in 2003 and last year.
The defector, whose real name wasn’t given, said the female cheering squad apparently violated a pledge not to speak about what they saw in South Korea, the Chosun Ilboreported.
Citing another unnamed defector, the newspaper said the cheerleaders had pledged before going to South Korea that they would treat the country as “enemy territory” and never speak about what they saw there, accepting punishment if they broke the promise.

4. The Vice President is displaying leadership by not acknowledging North Korea.
The Trump administration isn’t swallowing the B.S. that North Korea is shoveling at the world.
Refusing to acknowledge propaganda is leadership.
Refusing to celebrate an accomplice in a murderous, dictatorial regime is leadership.
Refusing to cheer on the creepy, choreographed cheerleaders that are selected for their looks, connections, and threatening them with reprisals if they don’t do a good enough job, is leadership.
Would that other nations and media outlets do likewise…
But then, not every country has badass patriotic leadership like we do here in America.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:
And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:
Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
