If media reports are to be believed, Dennis Rodman seeks a turn a “rehab redemption” for kissing the ass of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un during a birthday party for the man, who prior to the visit executed his uncle for corruption and other “crimes against the regime.”
There is no bargaining with the type of evil! An evil dictatorship that starves its own people in order to feed their army and supporters of the family. An evil dictatorship that punishes three generations of family members for the alleged misdeeds on one family member. An evil dictatorship that continues to kidnap and threaten South Koreans, full well-knowing that the South Koreans are unlikely to fight back.
As for Rodman and his so-called the basketball diplomacy, it appears that Rodman was in it for the money and media attention. Sort of a bad version of his friend Donald Trump. Where is the sportsmanship when the teams exchange players and fight to a pre-arranged tie?
Bottom line …
I grant you that Dennis Rodman was a championship athlete and an entertainer post retirement, but Dennis Rodman is a poor excuse for an American. To even think that some North Koreans believe Americans dress and behave like Rodman is a tragedy. Rodman is such a fool that he does not know if he is being “played” by the North Koreans as an example of the corrupt and decadent West.
