North Korean Defector Exposes Life in North Korea | Yeonmi Park | INTERNATIONAL | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Yeonmi Park (North Korean Defector) about what life in North Korea is really like, how she managed to escape from North Korea, China’s support of Kim Jong Un, and her thoughts on US mainstream media. Yeonmi first describes what it’s like to be inside North Korea. She describes growing up during the North Korean famine and how malnutrition and the food crisis forced her and her family to decide to become defectors and escape from North Korea. They fled to China where they became the victims of human trafficking. Yeonmi describes what life was like living in South Korea after her and her family left China. She describes how awful racism in South Korea was towards North Korean refugees and why she decided to come to the United States. She discusses how the human rights abuses of Kim Jong Un are only possible with the support of Xi Jinping and China. She is critical of US interests including mainstream media that refuse to offend China and thereby end up giving support to the North Korean regime. Yeonmi gives her thoughts on mainstream media like NPR, BBC, and the New York Times and the similarities she sees with North Korean propaganda. She describes her own ventures in media with her YouTube channel and her warnings about the dangers of socialism. She reminds Americans of how vital freedom of speech is and why they must safeguard free speech from any attacks from Big Tech or cancel culture.
