“Internet centrist” on Sparkling Korea

June 7, 2008

More Rumors, More Demagogy, More protests, More Violence, More Boycot, and now Witch hunts by citizens = Mass Hysteria

It’s just painful, pathetic and above all, stupid.

‘소고기 민심’ 이번엔 불매운동
맥도날드 등 전방위 확산

여기에 네티즌들은 최근 르까프, 신선설농탕, 목우촌 등이 “보수 언론 광고를 자제하겠다”고 나서자 “물건 많이 사주자”라는 글과 함께 “아직 남은 업체가 몇 군데 있다. 리스트를 업데이트해 달라”고 인터넷을 통해 시시각각 상황을 올리고 있다.

Boycotting American products and Macdonald’s(even if the accusation was false).

앞 서 개그우먼 정선희씨는 자신이 진행하는 라디오 프로그램에서 촛불집회와 관련해 부정적인 언급을 했다는 이유로 네티즌들이 프로그램 협찬사와 정씨 광고주에 대한 불매운동을 벌였다. 정씨는 항의전화를 견디다 못해 결국 6일 사과방송을 한 뒤, 소속사를 통해 프로그램 하차 의사를 밝혔다.

Mass protests against a radio reporter who spoke negatively about the violent protest. (McCarthyism or witch hunt, you name it. This is not the only example)

‘촛불파도타기’로 지구촌도 “들썩”
6개국 9개 도시에서 “우리도 날 잡았어요”
http://www.ohmynews.com/NWS_Web/view/at_pg.aspx?CNTN_CD=A0000920014&PAGE_CD=16

“Let’s light up the world village with our candle lights! We’re planning at 9 big cities in 6 countries”

Oh boy, what good does it do? That only shows how crazy Koreans are to the rest of the world…

..

And, as usual in Korean society, those who speak rationally will be dealt with fists.

Those who don’t agree will be fucked!! (Remember this?)

  1. Hello, I found your blog through Occidentalism.org.

    I’ve spent the past 90 minutes going through your blog. It’s very interesting and highly entertaining. It’s not everyday that I find a Japanese blogger who is trying to communicate in English about the topics you have chosen to write about.

    I lived in South Korea for almost five years, so I know a thing or two about many of the topics you have written about.

    At any rate, I’ve been following the latest hysterical demonstrations in South Korea. It’s interesting to see that the demonstrators are still up to their old tricks. However, not too many people here in America seem to care as usual. It’s as though the U.S Government will probably come to the rescue of Lee Myung Bak.

    Unfortunately. He agreed to the deal. He should face the consequences. It’s as simple as that. Why should the U.S. Government have to bail him out just to save face? I don’t think so.

    With these protests about the importation of American beef into South Korea, I think it is high time for the U.S. to start getting tough with South Korea. The U.S. Government has given South Korea a free ride in just about everything for far too long.

    South Koreans don’t want to import American beef, no problem. I can think of a few ways to retaliate.

    In retaliation, the U.S. Government should start severely reducing the number of visas given to South Koreans to visit the U.S. I’m thinking ZERO visas for South Koreans. In addition, the U.S. Government should start kicking out all of the South Koreans who have over stayed their visas. That’s quite a few people to say the least. South Korean prostitutes in America should also be given the boot as well.

    If the protestors want to boycott U.S. products, no problem. I say it’s high time to stop the importation of, say, cellphones by Samsung and LG because they might increase the likelihood of cancer by users (or some other excuse). We could also drudge up excuses to further reduce the importation of South Korean-made cars for some kind of safety concern.

    Also, it’s time to start calling South Koreans’ bluff by reducing U.S. troop levels in South Korea. I would even go so far as to say that U.S. troops might not do anything if North Korea would do some provocation against South Korea.

    Those kinds of measures would fix the South Korean protestors, I’m sure.
