Following President Trump's United Nations' speech threats to "totally destroy" North Korea, lambasting the North's leader Kim Jong-un as "a rocket man on a suicide mission," it appears he is not the only one capable of public and aggressive hyperbole.
As The Independent reports, propaganda fliers presumed to be from North Korea and calling US President Donald Trump a “mad dog” have turned up across central Seoul, including near the presidential Blue House, according to posts on social media and people who found them.
“Death to old lunatic Trump!” reads one poster, with a North Korean soldier with rifle in hand, crushing what looks to be Trump’s head with his tongue dangling out of his mouth.
Near the soldier’s head is the line: “Complete obliteration.”
Another poster shows Trump with the body of a dog being decapitated by an axe…
Blood is shown splattered on the axe in the poster, which states:
“Let’s behead mad dog Trump for the future of a peaceful and warless world and mankind!”
And In an apparent jab at Trump’s UN speech, one of the propaganda posters featured Trump standing behind a podium with a rocket in his mouth painted with the words “totally destroy North Korea”.
Again, Trump is depicted as a dog with a human face and labelled as “mad dog Trump”.
Men in suits (on the right) with surprised looks on their faces are shown in the poster saying:
“He’s gone completely insane” and “If we let him be, there will be war”.
Of course none of this is new to Trump as liberal so-called comedians have gone there…
And so has German magazine Der Spiegel…
But, it is reportedly not difficult to find North Korean propaganda posters in South Korea, usually flown by balloon over the highly fortified demilitarised zone.
Military images and anti-US threats are common in North Korea propaganda as Pyongyang demands the United States cease what it says is its preparations for invasion.
“I am pretty sure it came from North Korea by balloon, since the prevailing winds during October have been from north to south and we’ve been getting reports of others finding them throughout Seoul,” said Chad O‘Carroll, managing director of NK News, a Seoul-based news subscription service, who found the leaflets while jogging in central Seoul.
But, as The Indepdent reports, the new series of fliers posted recently on Twitter and other social media target Trump specifically.
