Classy. A SKorean cartoonist has portrayed Park Sang-hak, a NKorean defector, as a mad dog.

미친X means mad dog. The X was used because adding the word dog would have been an insult. Because THAT would have been over the line.

The caption: "I will report Moon Jae-in to the UN."

Park Sang-hak is a NKorean defector and chairman of Fighters for a Free North Korea (자유북한운동연합). FFNK is the organization that periodically launches balloons carrying human rights and pro-democracy leaflets, DVDs, and USB flash drives from SKorea to NKorea.
Last month, after Kim Yo-jong, Kim Jong Un's sister, threatened SKorea over the leaflets sent by activists, SKorea's ruling Minjoo Party sponsored five separate bills in the National Assembly to ban leaflet drops from and around the DMZ.
In fact, the SKorean government said that it would press charges against two activist groups that floated anti-Pyongyang leaflets and bottles filled with rice to NKorea.…
Park Sang-hak is not unknown to the NKorean regime. They sent assassins to kill Park in 2011.…

Due to the constant threat to his life that Park faces from the NKorean regime, his home address was kept a secret.
His address was only known by the National Intelligence Service, the Ministry of Unification, and the police. Until it was somehow leaked to the media. Reporters swarmed his home, exposing Park's and his family's whereabouts.…
The police raided Park's home.…

FFNK's offices were raided.…

Park was questioned by the police for 8 hours.…

Because he and other defectors dared to send leaflets to NKorea.
During a press conference earlier today, Park Sang-hak said, "The Moon administration is trying to deprive the people of their basic rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution. I will report President Moon to the UN."…
Park continued, "Defectors have nothing, and are some of the weakest members of this society. We all risked our lived to live in this country (SKorea). How can this government not side with us and side with murderous gangsters instead?"
Park went on, "When Kim Yo-jong threatened SKorea, the Blue House and the Ministry of Unification acted as though they were under her command. The administration and the police are panicking!"
Park continued, "People have nonsensically accused me of sending pornography along with the leaflets. The leaflets I send talk about SKorea's economy, society, and cultural development - the same material used by the Korea Military Academy.
"This is what the Blue House and the Ministry of Unification call 'garbage.' If they call the very material used by the Korea Military Academy garbage, then what country are they the citizens of?"
But sure. To the SKorean left, it's clear that Park Sang-hak is the mad dog. In case they delete the tweet or the post, I kept a screenshot.

Stay classy, folks.
NKorean defectors need political allies and support. However, ever since the Moon administration came into power, defector groups have had their budgets slashed.…
After slashing their budgets, silencing them, and marginalizing them, the SKorean left treats NKorean defectors as though they were monsters for siding with the right or the far right. But they are the only ones offering them support!
Some among the SKorean left also claim that NKorean defectors aren't fellow citizens or deserve the same rights as SKorean citizens. No wonder defector groups drift further to the right!

This is a disaster that the SKorean left created all on their own.
