The Reason US Media Ignores North Korea’s Crimes (Pt. 2)| Yeonmi Park | INTERNATIONAL | Rubin Report


Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Yeonmi Park (North Korean Defector) about what life in North Korea is really like, how she managed to escape from North Korea, China’s support of Kim Jong Un, and her thoughts on US mainstream media. Yeonmi describes what life was like living in South Korea after her and her family left China. She describes how awful racism in South Korea was towards North Korean refugees and why she decided to come to the United States. She discusses how the human rights abuses of Kim Jong Un are only possible with the support of Xi Jinping and China. She is critical of US interests including mainstream media that refuse to offend China and thereby end up giving support to the North Korean regime.
