Here is an example of what some of these North Korea apologist lawmakers in South Korea think:
Lawmaker Lim Soo-kyung of the opposition Democratic United Party yesterday made a second apology for calling North Korean defectors “traitors” in an alcohol-fueled tirade at a Seoul restaurant Friday night.
Appearing at a party workshop in Yangjae-dong, Lim, who was jailed for three and a half years for making an unapproved trip to North Korea in 1989, said: “The whole controversy was prompted by my lack of virtue and I sincerely apologize to everyone who would have been hurt by my inappropriate remarks. My beliefs and thoughts aren’t like that. I hope North Korean refugees settle down and live a stable life.”
In an altercation in a restaurant in Jongno District, central Seoul, Friday night, Lim called 28-year-old defector Baek Yosep a “traitor” and continued: “How can a son of a bitch like you, a North Korean defector of humble birth, come and challenge a lawmaker of the South Korean parliament?” [Joong Ang Ilbo]
You can read more at the link, but it seems to me if Lim thinks North Korea is so great and that the defectors shouldn’t have left, than why doesn’t he do us all a favor and stay in North Korea himself?
