The Communist Rhetoric Lives On

"[D]espicable human scum Jang, who was worse than a dog" is what the North Korean government had to offer in the form of a eulogy to one of its most senior and recently executed leaders. If translated into Khmer, this line could have been mistaken for something that came out of Democratic Kampuchea. It is amazing that communist governments have a distinct bilious rhetorical style that is exactly the same no matter what language it is uttered in.
