I heard about the bullying/harassment of visitors from North Korea on WMAL this morning. I just hope the bullies now realize just how much they embarrassed themselves and their country.
Here is the story in The Daily Caller, NORTH KOREAN DEFECTORS RESPOND TO ANTI-TRUMP RAPPER AFTER HE HARASSED THEM. They have a video of the incident. They weave it into an interview of Wendy Wright, President of Christian Freedom International.
Why the interview of Wright? Two guys decided to bully some people who had escaped North Korea, a truly brutal, Stalinist, totalitarian regime. Unaware of the prickly sensitivities of some people in our nation’s capital, visitors from Korea had the “audacity” to wear MAGA hats.
PJ Media also carries the story, It Gets Worse: Asians Harassed in D.C. for Wearing MAGA Hats Were North Korean Defectors. Their story, which provides a slight different slant, posts the bare bones version of the bullying/harassment video.
Are you a friend or an acquaintance of the bullies? Please do those fellows a favor. Please suggest they man-up and publicly apologize for their behavior. That includes suggesting they buy replacements for the hats they damaged. That includes sending those new MAGA hats to the visitors they self-righteously bullied. Undoubtedly, the Christian Freedom International has a mailing address, and they will be happy to forward the hats to our visitors. These North Koreans, good Christians who have escaped the wrath of truly vile bullies, will gratefully accept their apologies and thank the Lord for the newfound wisdom shown by those who once attacked them.
If the bullies are reluctant or afraid, please ask them this question. Instead of trying to discern the hearts of those wearing symbols we detest, should we not consider our own hearts first? Before we judge others, don’t we need to judge ourselves first?
Who am I? Am I one the Lord hates because I hate wrongfully?
Proverbs 6:12-19 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 A worthless person, a wicked man,
Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth,
13 Who winks with his eyes, who [a]signals with his feet,
Who [b]points with his fingers;
14 Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil,
Who [c]spreads strife.
15 Therefore his calamity will come suddenly;
Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing.
16 There are six things which the Lord hates,
Yes, seven which are an abomination [d]to Him:
17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
And hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that run rapidly to evil,
19 A false witness who utters lies,
And one who [e]spreads strife among brothers.
