Allen West “Watch US student begs for mercy from NKorea; Obama’s response is PATHETIC”

Ok, here we go again. The pudgy little fat kid with the bad haircut is at it once more – and that’s not just about constantly shooting off of missiles, conducting nuclear tests and the incessant threats.

As Written By Allen B. West:

Needless to say, he sees Iran getting away with it, and figures why not me? And if any of you don’t believe there’s some collusion between North Korea and Iran, you’re smokin’ whacky tobacky.

So, following Iran’s lead, North Korea has taken another act of defiance towards the United States – and this time, an American citizen.

As reported by Fox News, “North Korea’s highest court sentenced an American tourist to 15 years in prison with hard labor for subversion on Wednesday, weeks after authorities presented him to media and he tearfully confessed that he had tried to steal a propaganda banner.

Otto Warmbier, 21, a University of Virginia undergraduate, was convicted and sentenced in a one-hour trial in North Korea’s Supreme Court.

He was charged with subversion under Article 60 of North Korea’s criminal code. The court held that he had committed a crime “pursuant to the U.S. government’s hostile policy toward (the North), in a bid to impair the unity of its people after entering it as a tourist.

“North Korea regularly accuses Washington and Seoul of sending spies to overthrow its government to enable the U.S.-backed South Korean government to take control of the Korean Peninsula.

Before the trial, Warmbier had said he tried to steal a propaganda banner as a trophy for an acquaintance who wanted to hang it in her church. That would be grounds in North Korea for a subversion charge. He identified the church as Friendship United Methodist Church. Meshach Kanyion, pastor of the church in Wyoming, declined to comment Wednesday.

Trials for foreigners facing similar charges in North Korea are generally short and punishments severe. Warmbier was arrested as he tried to leave the country in early January. He was in North Korea with a New Year’s tour group. U.S. tourism to North Korea is legal. Arrests of tourists are rare but the U.S. State Department strongly advises against such travel.”

I know, some of you out there are thinking, who goes to North Korea as a tourist? I got it, not a very smart move, but there’s something bigger here…..

    Stupid “ain’t no consequences in America” kid. Well, you ain’t in America now. Enjoy your 15 years hard labor, idiot!!! See ya’, wouldn’t want to be ya’.

    • Suzanne McKay

      I have to admit I don’t know this kid or those in the group he was with. But, I’m thinking he might be Liberal, and he thought it would be so COOL, so FORWARD-THINKING, so NICEY-NICE to go to North Korea and show them how good we are. DUMB!!!! I hope this is a wake-up call for other bleeding hearts. Again, I’m just guessing. I mean, look who else went there to cozy up to the big murdering, disgusting COMMIE . . . Dennis Rodman!!!

        Suzanne, military people have been going to foreign countries for just about forever. Before we go, and during our in-country briefings, we are told — no punches — about their country’s laws and taboos. Not only are military people held to “a higher standard” because we’re Americans, but because we’re “American Military”. The young idiots, being indoctrinated in today’s liberal colleges and universities, think they can get away with flaunting “the rules” — be they American rules or other country’s rules. I, personally, hope this kid rots. I do know that he’ll never be the same…IF he survives. KT

        • Suzanne McKay

          I totally agree with you, DenverKitty. I REALLY hope his Liberal College friends learn from this . . . especially close friends of his. COMMUNISM is not an ideology of “Sweetness and Light!!”

          • DenverKitty

            Suzanne…he may not realize it until it is too late… Kitty

  • Homer

    Why on earth would Anyone want to go to NK??????

    • Suzanne McKay

      MY FIRST THOUGHT, too!! What “group” was he with for this “New Year” tour? It sounds completely LOONY to me!!! And then to try to steal a stupid banner from a restricted area in a COMMUNIST country? I don’t think that is very smart.

      • Homer

        Kinda like jumping the zoo fence to see what the big ole Lion`s having for dinner! Couldn’t pay me to go to nk.

        Forrest had it right, Stupid is what stupid does.

        • Suzanne McKay

          An EXCELLENT analogy! It expresses the DANGER of the behavior much more than I did. And the stupidity of it.

  • Norma Davis

    Send a party of 6 from the Dumicratic party ,trade for that child

    • JoAnn Graham

      The only trouble is, he’s probably a DUMBocrat, too, so they wouldn’t be getting anything different in the trade. Anybody who would be that clueless and do somehing THAT stupid just HAS to be a liberal DUMBocrat.

  • Robert Higgins

    The kid is paying the price for unbelievable stupidity…this would be no different than trying to swim across a gator infested everglade then complain because you got eaten by a gator…DON’T swim the everglade…don’t steal in North Korea…duh…

  • metheoldsarge

    Who would want to hang a North Korean propaganda flag in a church. He could have asked to buy it or find out if he could buy one in a souvenir shop. I don’t feel the least bit sorry for him. Talk about abnormally stupid.

  • darrell_b8

    He won’t live thru it……..

  • Jeff Noncent

    Are you kidding me? it’s scarry to say the least all American stay home don’t go anywhere because one of these days it’s going to happen here in America

  • bluebonnet

    sounds like a spoiled little rich kid

  • ToucheTurtle

    WHY is this young man there? Either he lived in a vacuum where he didn’t know the danger of going to NK . . . . . OR . . . . . he thought he would be saved by his government if detained. I guess he should have listened to the former CIA member’s family who have not seen, heard from, or even know if he is a live in Iran – the POTUS never even inquired before he made a deal with Iran on nukes!!!

    Do I feel sorry for him? Not really . . . who is dumb enough to do such a thing???? It is quite apparent he belongs to a generation of Americans who have never been taught about making decisions and then having to deal with consequences. Too bad his parents didn’t do a better job OR too bad he just didn’t listen.

    This young man is NOT uneducated so he KNEW the danger, took the leap anyway, then tried to steal a banner and now he is in deeeeeeeeeeep doo-doo! There are consequences for actions, and he is about to find out what happens when you ignore danger. Perhaps Kim Jung Il will exercise a measure of mercy and only sentence him to 5 years instead of the usual 15.

    Is it our government’s responsibility to save him? If the last 7+ years is any indication, the answer is apparently not!!!
