The seemingly soft and unthreatening Korean K-pop rapper PSY, who has gotten millions of people to dance in a stupid fashion to his catchy “song” Gangnam Style, is actually virulently anti-American, as evidenced by the lyrics to a song by South Korean rock band N.E.X.T. that he sang in a 2004 concert:
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
He is, of course, trying to sanitize his past history in order to enjoy the fruits of his current world adulation. One sign of the impending Apocalypse? That over 900,000,000 million views of his video have been recorded on YouTube. Compare: the 1958 performance of Beethoven’s masterful Ninth Symphony, performed by the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Herbert von Karajan (the gold standard for this piece) and including an in-her-prime Leontyne Price singing soprano: 59,000 views. Seriously? WTF?
Hey PSY, here’s a little statistic for you: over 33,000 “fucking Yankee” soldiers died to prevent the country you were born in from becoming the same Marxist “People’s” shithole that North Korea has become. This happened before you were even a randy gleam in your daddy’s eye, which you seem not to know as apparently you have never studied Korean history. Had Americans not died to protect the sovereignty of South Korea, you would have grown up in a regime that has created such widespread starvation among its people that malnutrition has caused the average North Korean to be between 1 and 3 inches shorter than the average South Korean. In the late 1990’s, North Korea experienced a famine that caused upwards of 3,500,000 people to die of starvation, out of a population of about 22 million. When 15% of your population dies from state-induced lack of food, what do you do? Why, you give it a pithy name: “the Arduous March.” Man, those Commies have a catchy phrase for everything.
If you had grown up under conditions like those that exist today in North Korea, you would not be “rapping” for a high-bling living, you would be laboring in a prison camp and eating your stolen pork raw so the guards wouldn’t catch you cooking it and beat the crap out of you. Your fame consists entirely of creating a catchy song paired with a silly dance, which makes you something of a one-hit wonder. Even the Hokey Pokey (which by the way was written in 1857) is a catchy song with a silly dance. People are still singing and performing that song and dance today. Do you think anyone will be doing the Gangnam Style dance in six months? Can you say “Hey, Macarena?”
Bonus add-on: President Obama and Michelle, despite the controversy over PSY’s ugly past, will nonetheless still attend his Christmas performance. The President had a great opportunity to engage in a Clintonesque “Sister Souljah” moment, demonstrating his leadership qualities and racking up some props even from conservative commentators, who would have undoubtedly (if grudgingly) given him a thumbs-up for doing the right thing and distancing himself from anti-American sentiment. That was a high-hanging PR curveball and the President completely whiffed it. But he is, after all, The Smartest President EVAH.™
