North Korean Defector Is Shocked By Her Experience In Ivy League Schools

A female defector from North Korea who recently moved to the United States is blowing the whistle on leftist brainwashing.

Yeonmi Park says that she was indoctrinated by the Kim regime in North Korea, and she’s seeing the same things here.

One of several hundred North Korean defectors settled in the United States, Park, 27, transferred to Columbia University from a South Korean university in 2016 and was deeply disturbed by what she found.

“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park said in an interview with Fox News. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”

Yeonmi Park and her mother escaped North Korea in 2007 – an action that would have resulted in their execution if caught. Yeonmi was only 13 years old.

After escaping into China, she and her mother were taken by human traffickers and sold into slavery.

Yet this didn’t stop her from later escaping again after crossing the border into Mongolia. She walked across the Gobi dessert and found refuge in South Korea.

Now that she’s studying in America, it seems her past is following her:

“In North Korea I literally believed that my Dear Leader [Kim Jong-un] was starving,” she recalled. “He’s the fattest guy – how can anyone believe that? And then somebody showed me a photo and said ‘Look at him, he’s the fattest guy. Other people are all thin.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God, why did I not notice that he was fat?’ Because I never learned how to think critically.”

“That is what is happening in America,” she continued. “People see things but they’ve just completely lost the ability to think critically.”

This story is truly eye-opening and turns what we know on it’s head. For years, we Americans looked at North Korea and shook our heads.

We were grateful that we weren’t like them, despite not being perfect ourselves.

But now a woman who literally grew up in North Korea is raising the alarm on leftist indoctrination in our schools.

This insanity must stop!
