DPRK state media published two statements on 19 June (Wednesday) that lambasted and partially denied** an allegation that the country’s leader Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n) distributed copies of a translation of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s memoir-cum-manifesto Mein Kampf (My Struggle) along with other gifts to DPRK elites on Kim Jong Un’s birthday in January 2013. New Focus International, citing DPRK sources in China and internal documents, reported on 17 June (Monday) that “to mark Kim Jong-un’s birthday on January 8th, DPRK officials ranked departmental director and above in the National Defence Committee were presented with the autobiography of Adolf Hitler in the form of a ‘hundred-copy book’ (This refers to a limited edition of translated books which are officially banned but have been published in secret for the consumption of members of the North Korean elite).” NFI‘s report was disseminated, without any independent corroboration, in South Korean media and by The Washington Post‘s WorldViews blog. KCNA issued a commentary which described NFI‘s story as “sheer fabrication” and “false trumpeting by forces hostile to the DPRK”:
The Washington Post recently quoted an article allegedly carried by New Focus, media of human scum in south Korea, as saying that the DPRK presented Hitler’s memoir “My Struggle” to its officials and there is possibility of the DPRK mounting a campaign of learning after Hitler, which is sheer fabrication.
As known, New Focus is wicked media made up of human scum who fled to south Korea from the DPRK after betraying the nation and which is supported by the south Korean puppet group and ultra-right conservatives. It has carried a whole gamut of false reports slandering the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and distorting the situation of socialism only to be cursed and censured by the public at home and abroad.
The group of such dirty men talked rubbish packaged in false information, a mockery of media whose basic mission is objectivity, impartiality and neutrality and an intolerable insult to human conscience.
This foolish act is aimed to tarnish the image of the DPRK and hurt the validity and invincibility of the Songun cause, being frightened by the might of the DPRK that arouses admiration and support from the world with time. The U.S. media professing professional journalism carried the false report written by those rubbish betes noires for a few pennies, bringing shame to itself.
Fabricating false reports, away from elementary human conscience and ethics, and echoing them all disclose ignorance of the situation of the DPRK. It is a hysteric symptom of those who are frightened by the DPRK demonstrating its might as the world’s strongest political and ideological power and a nuclear weapons state and making leaping progress to bring prosperity. No one will believe such a false report in the bright world of the 21st century.
The false trumpeting by forces hostile to the DPRK is a serious, politically-motivated provocation against it.
Just as it is impossible to smear the blue sky dark with dirty writing brush of falsity and machinations, the forces hostile to the DPRK can never undermine the validity of the Military-First (So’ngun) cause pioneered and led by the peerlessly great men nor can they keep the army and people of the DPRK from dynamically advancing toward victory, true to the new line on simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force.
New Focus International‘s original report on Kim Jong Un distributing Mein Kampf also alleged that Minister of People’s Security, Gen. Choe Pu Il, invoked one of Nazi Germany’s key internal security agencies the Geheime Staatspolizei (a.k.a The Gestapo), which was subordinate to the Schutzstaffel (a.k.a. The S.S.) during an undated speech to public security officials. According to NFI Gen. Choe said, “We are equivalent to a police force. In other countries, people fear the police more than they fear the army. Stop focusing on ways to make money in the markets, and mould yourselves after the Gestapo. In the Kim Jong-un era, the Department of People’s Security is the most powerful department – be proud.”
The Ministry of People’s Security [MPS] released a “Special Press Statement” published and broadcasted on 19 June which alleged that South Korean President Park Geun-hye “and other incumbent puppet authorities are falsifying the human scum belonging to the malicious organizations of the escapees from the North into experts on North Korean affairs and using them as a front in an open smear campaign against us” because “they staged a burlesque of carrying in Yonhap News and The Washington Post even the escapees’ fabricated article saying that we had given to cadres as gifts copies of the book ‘My Struggle’ written by Hitler, and we are waging a campaign to learn from the experience gained in rebuilding Third Empire in Germany following the World War I.” The MPS said that “from the beginning, our army and people have thought that talking about the escapees from the North itself is shame, while regarding them as herds of the starved wild dogs in human skin. . .however, we can neither overlook nor tolerate these ugly creatures removed from the rolls of human beings and expelled from the bright world, as they are recklessly slandering and hurling abuses at our dignity and system, while playing main roles in staging the burlesques of confrontation with the incumbent South Korean gang of puppets and the brigandish US imperialists under their protection and manipulations.”
The MPS attempted to further link NFI‘s report to the Park Administration saying “we do not want to further mention how difficult is the situation of the Park Geun-hye gang that is trying to confront us at any cost even by relying on these human rubbish and how pitiable is the politics of the United States that is trying to topple our system by using them” and that “no matter how desperately they make last-ditch efforts, gripped by extreme anxiety and fears, the trouble-ridden lives of the puppets cannot be prolonged, and the hostile policy of the United States toward the DPRK, which is to realize its goal of aggression through the puppets, too, cannot escape the fate of failure.” The Ministry claimed that “our army and people are turning out, calling for eliminating as early as possible the human rubbish which are kicking up hysterical frenzies after being reduced to servants for confronting fellow countrymen, far from paying for their criminal past by death. People in the hometowns where they lived and even their own flesh and blood as well are begging us every day to allow them to kill these human scum with their own hands.” MPS also announced that “reflecting the rage of the millions of soldiers and people that is full in this land, has decided to take an actual action to physically eliminate the ugly human scum that are continuing to additionally commit high treason under the abetment of the incumbent puppet authorities and the brigandish United States. The ugly human scum will never be able to look up to the sky by remaining alive nor be able to find even an inch of land to be buried after death.” The MPS concluded its “special press announcement” saying that “the United States, the incumbent South Korean authorities, and the vicious conservative media that are tenaciously persisting in smear propaganda and criticisms against us by using them, too, will receive merciless showers of justice.”
According to KCNA, the MPS’ statement said:
The Ministry of People’s Security of the DPRK issued the following special statement Wednesday:
The DPRK, a country dignified with independence and powerful with Songun, is enjoying the greatest dignity with a bright prospect of socialism of Juche.
The world is looking enviously at the army and people of the DPRK dashing ahead toward the final victory in sight on the horizon at the “Masikryong Speed”. Meanwhile, the moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK on the part of the dishonest and hostile forces have faced bankruptcy.
A handful of human scum is moving desperately to deter this progress.
Park Geun Hye and other present puppet authorities of south Korea are openly putting to the fore human scum belonging to the organizations of die-hard defectors from the north, painting them as “experts in north Korean issue” and instigating stepped-up criticism.
On June 18, south Korea fed to Yonhap News and The Washington Post articles contributed by defectors saying that copies of book “My Struggle” authored by Hitler were presented to officials in the DPRK as gifts and campaign is now under way to learn from the experiences gained in rebuilding the “Third Empire” that existed in Germany after the First World War.
They even committed the thrice-cursed crime of belittling the matchless great personality of the leader of the DPRK reflected in his loving care for the future generations.
The army and people of the DPRK regard it as shame to make mention of defectors from the north, a group of wild dogs in human form.
The group of human scum marginalized in the bright world has become the main player in the confrontation farce under the patronage of the south Korean puppet group and brigandish U.S. imperialists. They even slandered and insulted the dignity and the social system of the DPRK, an act which can neither be overlooked nor tolerated.
By origin, defectors are human scum who were deserted even by home folks and kinsmen being branded as elements subject to legal punishment in the clean society in the DPRK for their crimes of murder, robbery, pilferage, embezzlement of state properties and corruptions.
South Koreans also know this.
But the south Korean authorities try to escalate confrontation with the DPRK by using them and the U.S. seeks to overthrow the social system in the DPRK in reliance on them. This proves the poor plight of the Park Geun Hye regime and the U.S. politics.
It is none other than the present puppet authorities of south Korea which seek to fan up confrontation wind despite their loud-mouthed ballad for “confidence” and “dialogue”. And it is the U.S. which moves overtly and covertly to topple the social system in the DPRK despite its stereo-typed call for peace and security on the Korean Peninsula.
No matter how desperately the puppet group of south Korea may try being gripped in extreme uneasiness and horror, they can never prolong their dirty remaining days. The U.S. which tries to attain its aggression aim in reliance on the group is bound to face bankruptcy in its hostile policy toward the DPRK.
The National Defence Commission of the DPRK on June 16 warned that all the future developments depend on the U.S. responsible option.
The army and people of the DPRK are strongly calling for punishing those human scum as early as possible as they are going hysteric as servants escalating confrontation with fellow countrymen, far from trying to redress their crime-woven past with death.
There are daily requests from home folks and kinsmen of those defectors for letting them kill human scum with their own hands.
The Ministry of People’s Security of the DPRK, reflecting the grudge of all its service personnel and people, is determined to take substantial measures to physically remove despicable human scum who are committing treasons at the instigation of the south Korean puppet authorities and the gangster-like U.S.
Sordid human scum will never be able to look up to the sky nor be able to find an inch of land to be buried after their death.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities and wicked conservative media resorting to smear campaign against the DPRK in reliance on them will be made to meet merciless punishment of justice.
**Whether or not the DPRK denies the distribution of Mein Kampf in its two statements is a subjective interpretation. New Focus International claims that the DPRK did not deny it had given copies of the book to senior cadres in its 19 June statements. However, describing something as a “fabrication” and “false trumpeting” can be viewed as an indirect denial.
