WaPo columnist demands Bethany Mandel apologize for calling North Korea ‘most brutal regime in human history’

As we reported earlier, the so-called “mainstream media” has become little more than propagandists for the brutal North Korean regime.  Now, a columnist with the Washington Post is demanding that Bethany Mandel, a columnist who spent the weekend raising money to help rescue North Korean refugees, apologize for calling North Korea “the most brutal regime in human history,” Twitchy reported on Sunday.

“The media shall continue on its years-long obsession about the dangers of “fake news” after having spent the weekend running propaganda for the most brutal regime in human history. And then they’ll claim it’s Trump, not their own actions, to blame for continued spiral of trust,” Mandel wrote on Twitter.


That criticism of the brutal Communist regime triggered Gene Weingarten, who demanded an apology — for North Korea.

“It’s not the most brutal regime in human history, Bethany. You need to apologize,” he said.

He then proceeded to call her clueless after her initial expression of shock:

She then basically told him that she refuses to apologize:


Weingarten then proceeded to “mansplain” his position to Mandel:

But, Twitchy said, Mandel is technically correct.  And she wasn’t about to back down to Weingarten:




Apparently so — But then again, remember that we now live in a reality where the media’s hatred of Donald Trump is so great they would side with a brutal Communist regime over the United States.

Let that sink in for just a bit…
