Banned: The Innocence of the Filmmakers
Remember the film Innocence of the Muslims?
Protests throughout the Muslim world, particularly in the Arab world, about the film got a lot of coverage in North Korea.
Or what passes for “a lot of coverage” in North Korea:
The FBI says North Korea was behind the Sony hack, causing Hollywood capitulation and self-censorship.
The North Koreans were upset about The Interview, a film about the killing of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un.
Kim, of course, is a God-like figure in North Korea, and the worship of him is tantamount to a religion.
Why would the North Koreans think the West would capitulate if it retaliated for the insult to its God-like leader?
The North Koreans are probably wondering what all the fuss is about.
