The media has fallen in love with the large group of North Korean cheerleaders at the Winter Olympics, but they seem to be missing one key feature about them.
The cheerleaders doing their routines are really creepy.
Please share and comment.
In regards to the relationship between North Korea and South Korea, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un says it's important to continue the 'reconciliatory mood' between the two nations.
Rocket man has yet to comment on mainstream media's favorable reporting of his sister.
The mainstream media is in absolute awe of North Korea at the Winter Olympics. From Kim Jong Un’s sister, to the athletes and even the cheerleaders, the headlines all shout adulation, despite the fact that the country should not have even been allowed to participate.
The Daily Wire reported: The North Korean government has sent 22 athletes to the Olympic Games, which should not have been allowed in the first place. In addition to these 22 athletes, North Korea has sent a cheer squad of over 200 called the “Army of Beauties” chosen for their looks and loyalty to the government.
These women are all over social media, performing choreographed routines at various sporting events with North Korean competitors. In one routine, they even held up masks with the face of Kim Jong Il, their former dictator.

Wait for it.... one of the stranger moments of the night... North Korean Cheerleaders holding masks as they sing “Whistle” one of North Korea’s most popular songs. #Olympics2018 (Via @Kubik_Kamera) pic.twitter.com/BXACRt27nZ — Gadi Schwartz (@GadiNBC) February 10, 2018
You would think in a situation like this, all Americans would react with disdain and apprehension, this being a clear act of propaganda, but you would be wrong. While some have done so, there are certainly those celebrating these women as a sign of peace to come.
The media’s coverage of these antics has been lackluster at best. In perhaps one of the most egregious headlines, The Wall Street Journal wrote, “North Korean Cheerleaders: 100 Olympic Stars are Born.”

Along with a video of the squad posted on NBC’s twitter account they wrote, “This is so satisfying to watch.”

They later removed the tweet.
Watch out for the new craze in satisfying videos. Political pawns in a tyrannical, murderous regime performing highly-choreographed routines to Bruno Mars is about to be all the rage.
Twitter is overflowing with celebration of this distraction tactic. If you don’t believe me, just check out these tweets.

This is not to suggest that the media has been congratulating the North Korean government. However, anything less than condemnation of this ploy should be considered unacceptable. The headlines should have read, "North Korean Government Sends Cheer Squad to Olympics in Obvious Display of Propaganda." Unfortunately, most are simply not that direct.
