Propaganda

February 19th, 2006 . by Matt

Just to show that propaganda goes both ways, here is a picture that has been floating around the net. In its original size it is much smaller, but I blew it up to make it clearer. It seems to be a picture of Kim Jong Il ‘inspecting’ some girls, and you get the idea that it is probably to bed them.

Kim jong il choosing chicks

The real, undoctored picture I found was on this Chinese military BBS right here.

Kim jong il inspecting female soldiers

I suppose that Kim Jong Il *might* be choosing some girls to decorate his bedroom in the second pic, but I rather suspect that the people that found those relatively unattractive girls would be facing the gulag for their failure to procure hot chicks for the Dear Leader.

Of course the first picture is made believable because there are stories and eye witness testimony that Kim Jong Il has a ‘pleasure squad’ to service him. However, in this case, the photo is not real.

    Hmm….girls in uniforms are supposed to be hot! But in case, I’ll pass. There are plenty of hot South Korean babes for Kim Jong II to kidnap.

    Im not quite sure how this qualifies as propaganda, because the real version of this picture has been on the internet for quite some time, and even I have had a copy of it for several months. It was probably changed by some guy with photoshop and too much time on his hands.

    That is my point. Not all propaganda is givernment sanctioned – the first one was presented on a Japanese site as a real one. It is an effective piece of propaganda because it matches our perceptions of Kim Jong Il.
