North Korea Taking Away Anti-US Propaganda
After June 12 summit with President Trump, Kim Jong-un has eased the imagery.
There’s proof that the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made major progress. And that proof is coming from north of the Demilitarized Zone.
Kim Jong-un has ordered an easing of anti-U.S. propaganda, including the previously ubiquitous posters of missiles heading towards Washington D.C., in the wake the June 12 summit. That’s a major step considering the state has a monopoly on media in North Korea and citizens’ views are shaped by that propaganda.
“Gone are the posters depicting the U.S. as a ‘rotten, diseased, pirate nation’ and promising ‘merciless revenge’ on American forces for an imagined attack on the totalitarian country,” writes The New York Post’s Eileen AJ Connelly. “In their place are cheery messages touting praising the prospects for Korean reunification and the declaration Kim signed in April with South Korean President Moon Jae-in promising ‘lasting peace,’ according to reports.”
