Leftist media blamed Otto Warmbier’s white privilege for his arrest. What about his murder?

Otto Warmbier deserved to be tortured in North Korea because he was a privileged white male.

That’s what leftist media bleated last year when Warmbier was arrested for taking a poster from a hotel in Pyongyang. Warmbier, then a 22-year-old college student, had been visiting North Korea as part of a tour with a China-based tour operator.

Otto was charged with spying by the paranoid North Korean regime, which then sentenced him to 15 years in prison. Warmbier spent the next 18 months rotting in jail before being returned to the United States last week in a coma. On Monday, Warmbier died of apparent brain damage. The cause of death is still being investigated.

While Otto’s family and patriotic Americans mourn the loss of a young man struck down in his prime, Twitter recalled how leftist media including Salon, the Huffington Post, the Comedy Channel, Ebony magazine, and Bustle gleefully celebrated Warmbier’s 2016 arrest.

Instead of being outraged or sympathetic that a fellow American was unlawfully detained by a murderous regime, liberals cheerfully blamed Warmbier for his arrest. Basically, leftists said Otto was a privileged white male who deserved what he got for pulling a frat-boy stunt by stealing a poster.

Here’s a reminder of liberal media blaming Warmbier for getting arrested.

Meanwhile, liberal media outlets did not assign any blame to the 4 Iranian-Americans who were jailed in Iran during Barack Obama‘s presidency.

While Obama reportedly told Otto Warmbier’s dad to stay silent about his son’s captivity, he worked tirelessly to negotiate the release of the Iranians jailed in Iran.

It bears noting that Iran felt it had the right to arrest those prisoners because they held dual citizenship (Iran and United States). Tehran does not recognize dual citizenship, and treated the arrests as a domestic matter. In contrast, Warmbier was 100% a United States citizen. North Korea had absolutely no “claim” on him, and therefore, no right to detain him like that.

In January 2016, the 4 Iranian-Americans jailed in Iran were released after the Obama administration delivered a ransom of $400 million in cash (that’s taxpayer money).

So what was the difference between Otto Warmbier and the Iranians Obama worked so hard to free? Here are their names:
Amir Hekmati
Saeed Abedini
Jason Rezaian
Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari.

From the outside, it seems Otto Warmbier might have lived—and Obama might have worked harder to secure his release—if only Otto were Muslim or had darker skin.

So, did Otto deserve to die because he was white? No. Did he die because he was white? You do the math.

Links to the following article.
North Korea Proves Your White Male Privilege Is Not Universal | HuffPost
La Sha is identified as a blogger. Four articles blogged.

And a review of how Huffington Post blogging works reveals this...
Yep, you no longer have to wait for the editors to review your contributions and can see your work published almost immediately.

Obviously this means that anyone and everyone can become a Huffington Post blogger, which kind of muddies up their brand since there aren’t any standards anymore.

It’s turning into a Medium of sorts — or nothing too special.
How to Become a Huffington Post Blogger (Using Their New Platform) - Careful Cents

That blogger no more represents Huffington Post (or liberals) than Manitou represents Political Wrinkles.


But I get it.
Others recognize the sleazy con job that this thread is and don't want to be bothered with proving it to people who don't care about it being a con job.

Leftists just can't handle the truth about the dirty scum that is part of the Left.
Founditt , what about Salon and all the rest of the hateful Left mentioned in the article, are they just random bloggers also?😳

Him being a stupid tard(Because that is what you would have to be in order to go to North Korea) who thought it was a bright idea to go to North Korea is what got him arrested. I guarantee that if anyone of those loony libs screaming white privilege went to North Korea some of them may wind up in the same situation.

You would never hear a black man say he should go to a KKK rally in the middle of nowhere by himself and unarmed and no streaming camera. You would never see an intelligent Trump supporter(assuming one exists) say hey I should go to that ANTIFA terrorist rally by myself wearing a make America great again t-shirt and unarmed.Those things would never happen unless it was accidental and those people are blind. But yet we have morons who think its a good idea to go to North Korea.

I have no doubt that both the left and the right have some dirty scum elements.

What I find hilarious about some posters on here is how they demand you repudiate any little piece of s**t excrement that they post, but then it never matters.
Because you don't care about the truth.
You'll be back to posting similar crap for another thread later.

And it's always somebody else's responsibility to disprove your lies.
YOU COULD do a little research yourself, but why should you be bothered with figuring out the truth when you're so damn eager to swallow any lie that comes your politically convenient way...


Regarding the Salon article:
In a statement on Tuesday, Executive Editor Andrew O'Hehir told Business Insider that the site chose to remove the article, titled "This might be America’s biggest idiot frat boy: Meet the UVa student who thought he could pull a prank in North Korea," noting the article was a write-up of a segment on the Nightly Show, a late night talk show that ran on Comedy Central from 2015 to 2016.

O'Hehir said he wasn't aware of the article until Tuesday.

"It was a 200-word post wrapped around the March 2016 Larry Wilmore clip about Warmbier, one of numerous late-night roundup pieces Salon and many other sites post over the weekend," O'Hehir said.

"It contained no original reporting, opinion or analysis on the Warmbier case and was entirely based on the Wilmore segment," he added. "Furthermore, we had significant editorial turnover during 2016 and no one on our current staff had anything to do with publishing that piece. I don't think anything in it was inaccurate: Wilmore said the things he said. But under the circumstances, it seemed respectful and appropriate to remove it."
Salon removes article calling Otto Warmbier 'America's idiot fratboy' - Business Insider

Larry Wilmore is a comedian. And that's not to say that the skit in question was "funny". I don't really know much about his stuff.
But that's HUGELY different from trying to nail Salon and Huff Post on false claims that I'm fairly certain you have absolutely no remorse for your part in that libel...


If you want me to go further, then how about you tell me which of those claims is credible, and then we go from there.
Cause as of right now you posted a stupid, s****y article and you're demanding I prove each element as stupid and s****y instead of doing the honest thing and just admitting it was bad.
