Despicable Human Scum Jang Song Thaek, Traitor for All Ages, Worse Than Dog, Executed With Warmest Paternal Love

Last evening, word broke that Jang Song Thaek, Kim Jong Un’s uncle, had been executed. The official statement of the Korean Central News Agency provides further insights:

Upon hearing the report on the enlarged meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the service personnel and people throughout the country broke into angry shouts that a stern judgment of the revolution should be meted out to the anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional elements. Against the backdrop of these shouts rocking the country, a special military tribunal of the DPRK Ministry of State Security was held on December 12 against traitor for all ages Jang Song Thaek.

The accused Jang brought together undesirable forces and formed a faction as the boss of a modern day factional group for a long time and thus committed such hideous crime as attempting to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with a wild ambition to grab the supreme power of our party and state.

The tribunal examined Jang’s crimes.

All the crimes committed by the accused were proved in the course of hearing and were admitted by him.

A decision of the special military tribunal of the Ministry of State Security of the DPRK was read out at the trial.

Every sentence of the decision served as sledge-hammer blow brought down by our angry service personnel and people on the head of Jang, an anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional element and despicable political careerist and trickster.

The accused is a traitor to the nation for all ages who perpetrated anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional acts in a bid to overthrow the leadership of our party and state and the socialist system.

Jang was appointed to responsible posts of the party and state thanks to the deep political trust of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il and received benevolence from them more than any others from long ago.

He held higher posts than before and received deeper trust from supreme leader Kim Jong Un, in particular.

The political trust and benevolence shown by the peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu were something he hardly deserved.

It is an elementary obligation of a human being to repay trust with sense of obligation and benevolence with loyalty.

However, despicable human scum Jang, who was worse than a dog, perpetrated thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the party and the leader for him.

So, you see, there was really no choice.

    Interesting to compare a dog to disloyalty. I cannot think of a more loyal creature.

    Mark Twain said that if you take a man and a dog out of a ditch and make them prosperous, the dog will not bite you.

    In other words,” I HAD to do it! He was a bad, bad man! Because of…. stuff! Yeah, stuff and things – not because I just wanted him dead. Nope. Imma good boy and really love the man I just had shot in the head. For reals. Imma morally upright dictator because I believe in family values during execution!”

    After all, can’t look like the bad guy when being the bad guy.

    I just want to give two thumbs up to the wonderful post title.

    Isn’t it wonderful, though, how Dear Charming Forthright Leader put country above family. The Extremely Democratic And Fair For Sure Republic of North Korea wins again!

    Ya know, I never did trust that Jang Song Thaek guy. He always looked a little too sneaky.

  6. Just 'nutha ig'rant cracker says:

    Another sidelight to the current story. The Korea Times today reports that a Rodong Simmun article reports that neither Kim Il sung nor Kim Jong-il ever approved of Jong-il’s sister marrying Jang.

    And yet the marriage was permitted to go on for 40 some years and he was afforded a place of high authority in the government.


    Memory hole…please report to the Ministry of State Security…
