The real story

North Korean news agency 'doctors photo of Kim Jong-il's funeral procession'

The death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il provoked scenes of such extreme public grief that many commentators doubted the veracity of the mourners.

Now new evidence has emerged of the lengths the Pyongyang regime will go to in order to choreograph memorials to the departed dictator.
As hundreds of thousands of people packed into Kim Il-sung Square in the heart of the capital, one image from Japanese news agency Kyodo showed a funeral cortege led by a limousine carrying the departed 69-year-old’s photograph.

2. Joseph Goebbels is smiling from Hell.

His legacy of evil manipulation of the news and media lives with us today and not just in North Korea.

3. Government manipulation of facts

 

We should always stay on guard in case abuses like this ever reach our shores.

4. Also, I believe the Beatles' faces have been airbrushed into

the snow in the pic on the right where the men are missing.

11. Whats more interesting is the line of people behind the crowd


Probably taking names of those who don't show enough grief.

14. Olbermann did it first: "Kim Jong Il has been downgraded to Kim Jong Dead."

8. After the extreme public grief in the UK over Princess Diana, I can believe the behaviour

is 'genuine' - if the media tells you for 17 years that everyone loves this person, then many people believe it of themselves. Propaganda really can work over a period, especially if you don't have access to opposing viewpoints. At least the UK allowed non-Diana worshipping viewpoints, and look how seriously some supposedly phlegmatic people took her death.

10. From the documentaries I've seen over the years on NK

I believe the grief was real since they have known nothing else in their lives.

If one is barraged from birth to death with only one view
one history, one man.....day in day out.

The documentaries were pretty sobering.

12. What's striking to me

What's striking to me is the cheek it takes for folks in our country to ridicule the goings-on in North Korea after our own week-long necrogasm over The Death of Ronald Reagan, sponsored by 20-Mule Team Borax. While we may not send folks to re-education camps for an inadequate display of grief, there are other punishments available to be inflicted on those who were not sufficiently mournful.

13. Great point.

I was pilloried after Reagan's death for my mere indifference...apparently I was supposed to show "respect for the office." My reply: respect is earned. Reagan never earned mine.

16. Definitely programmed responses that reflect a shared expectation of behaviour.

Probably grief cheerleaders sprinkled amongst the crowd to make sure the right level of grief is attained. But I also think that the lifelong propaganda programming is built on a 'father-child' model. Kim, of course, the supreme father figure; the entire population the children who depend on the father for their very existence. Framed that way, I do think many people's grief we're genuine displays of fear and anxiety of a future without the father.

I watched about 45 minutes of the video stream...it was fascinating, in a other world sense. I found the casket lashed to the roof of the limo to be really bizarre. I couldn't help but think maybe the Griswold family had taken a vacation to South Korea, inadvertantly busted through the DMZ, and ended up stopping to help out the actual hearse that broke down. I can see Clark saying..."sure, put the casket on top and I'll drive it to the mausoleum."
