Anti-U.S. North Korean Propaganda Art

Propaganda art is fascinating, powerful and plays on emotions. There are few nations in the world who keep up with this art form but it’s usually aimed at encouraging the country’s citizens to study hard, increase production, have male babies and not watch American Idol. Still, the dedicated and proud people of North Korea keep up the struggle against the running imperialist dogs of America on a daily basis while their former leader collected Precious Moments statuettes and Barbies and his replacement can’t seem to find a good barber.

So, to help the people forget their troubles, propaganda is cranked out to convince the citizens that as bad as things might be… er, I mean as wonderful as things might be… it’s preferable to the torture and death that will be brought by hip hop-humming, iPhone-using, pants-down-around-their-asses-wearing, video game-playing Americans. Can you blame them?

“Death to US imperialists, our sworn enemy!” You can identify Americans by the flag we wear wrapped around us and the giant “missile” sticking out of our pants.

“The US is truly an Axis of Evil” And apparently in very bad need of a manicure.

It says something about ridding the planet of America. Even so, McDonald’s will continue to take over the world.

We will bring Koreans the horrors of American dentistry!

Americans use Korean women as bulletin boards to leave messages of hate and shopping lists.

Kim Jong-Il tests the new bumper car model for the Pyongyang Six Flags… with matching .50 caliber machine guns and grenade launcher!

Seriously, aside from the examples of great graphics and art that comes out fo hate and fear, people are really all the same no matter where they are from and often victim to political agenda when all they want to do is live, love and laugh. So, I invite the North Koreans to a big dance mixer with Americans. That should clear up we are not so different after all.
