When you hear that citizens of foreign countries hate America, you can bet it's what they are taught.
Check out this evidence by Robert Koehler of the Marmot's Hole. It's disturbing and arguably, although I would contend otherwise, steaming proof of what happens when leftists infest the media and the educational system.
A poll shows that 34 percent of first-year army cadets called the United States the main enemy of South Korea, a former superintendent of the Korea Military Academy (KMA) said.That's one out of three who don't know who the enemy is. And these guys are the backbone of the South Korean military officer corps!
If a lie is told often enough, people will buy it. And the South Korean education and journalism professions must be held responsible. Both professional fields are populated with utopians who want to change the world through socialism, despite what the history books say about the inherent flaws of Karl Marx's thinking.
And equally disturbing is the following. A recent poll of Koreans ages 16-25 found:
"... 65% said that if a war were to break out between North Korea and the United States, they would help North Korea.That's two out of three fighting-age Koreans would support the enemy. Holy freakin' moly!
Now you could rationalize the results or generally criticize polling as inaccurate, but it is hard to dispute the overall message. America is bad, the enemy even, to a substantial segment of the South Korean population.
Odd, isn't it? Since if it were not for America, all of Korea would be harmoniously communist, populated with malnourished, grass-eating citizens trying to escape before they die.
Incidentally, the same indoctrination of useful idiots is occurring in the United States by the same purveyors of leftist ideology, the education establishment and the media. Thanks to the Internet, at least there's a chance to expose what is happening.
