Korean rhetoric of hate immortalised on web

'You black-hearted running dog!'

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Fans of Communist anti-Western rhetoric will be delighted to learn that a US aficionado of North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) has collated more than "50 megabytes of hard-core Stalinist propaganda ... each article written in the unique and indelible style of the KCNA".

Those not familiar with the "running dog lackey" school of journalism are immediately directed to the NK News database of North Korean propaganda.

To get you started, try the list of suggested searches, including such lexicographical wonders as "flunkeyist" ("the desperate efforts of the pro-American flunkeyist traitors"); "human scum" ("The letter called upon the working class of the U.S. to denounce human scum such as Bush and Rumsfeld..."); "kingpin of [insert activity according to taste] ("The U.S. is cursed and censured worldwide as the kingpin of man-hunting and flesh traffic" or "nightmarish fascist policy of suppression and a kingpin of fraud and swindle and other irregularities..."); and, naturally, the timeless "running dog" ("The United States invited its south Korean running dogs to its embassy in Seoul some days ago and...") and "lackey" ("Kim Jong Pil, the special class pro-Japanese lackeys of modern brand...")

Shockingly, the KCNA occasionally drops its editorial revolutionary guard, as demonstrated with the entry for "Fucking USA":

A candle-light service reportedly took place in front of the Thaehwa department store, Pusan, on Dec. 21 to honor the memory of the two schoolgirls killed by the GIs in cold blood. It was attended by over 1,000 citizens, youth, students and middle and high school boys and girls in Pusan.

At the end of the service, the participants sang songs "Arirang" and "Fucking USA" with strong anti-Americanism.

Ah, that "Fucking USA" - any chance of getting it onto iTunes Japan? Could give Crazy Frog a run for his money.

Of course, it's not all negativity and abuse. The KCNA has a penchant - doubtless partially driven by a desire not to end up in salt mine - for calling former NK supremo Kim Jong-il a "peerlessly great man", while the phrase "fatherly love" ("They spoke in excited tone of the benevolent fatherly love shown by Kim Jong Il for them") makes more than one welcome appearence.

Marvellous. But the real NK News scoop is the "Random Insult Generator" for those who want to "find out what it's like be a target of the KCNA's wrath". For example, who can argue with the delicious "You black-hearted running dog, we will mercilessly crush you with the weapon of singlehearted unity!" Not us, that's for sure. ®
