Dennis Rodman: Proof athletes should stick to sports & Update

Diplomacy requires intelligence

Flamboyant former NBA celeb Dennis Rodman is notorious for a lot of things.  Brilliance and international diplomacy are not among them.

During a recent trip to the repressive, communist-controlled dictatorship of North Korea, Rodman dined, drank and watched a basketball game with the country’s leader Kim Jong Un — apparently unconcerned that the head of the totalitarian regime has sworn to annihilate the United States. Last month’s third nuclear test and intensified long-range rocket launches are clearly saber-rattling aimed at the United States — which the despotic government has described as the “sworn enemy of the Korean people.” 

Yet on Friday Rodman called Kim Jong Un an “awesome guy” and said his father and grandfather were “great leaders.”

In an airport interview on his way to Beijing, Rodman said it was “amazing” that the North Koreans were “so honest.” Along with calling Kim Jong-il and Kim il-Sung, North Korea’s founder, “great leaders,”  Rodman proclaimed Kim Jong Un “a friend for life.”

“He’s proud, his country likes him — not like him, love him, love him,” Rodman said of Kim Jong Un. “Guess what, I love him. The guy’s really awesome.”

Does the cross-dressing, woman-beating, alcoholic who is behind nearly $1 million in child support payments have any idea that if North Koreans don’t “love him” they don‘t get a second chance?

Update-tag

The grossly pierced and tattooed Dennis Rodman apologized on behalf of North Korea’s repressive leader during an interview today with George Stephanopoulos on ABC‘s This Week.  Kim Jong Un, who can’t pick up the phone himself, told Rodman he “wants Obama to call him.” Rodman’s minuscule mind focuses on “He’s a great guy….He loves basketball…Obama loves basketball.  Let’s start there.”

How about we start here: According to North Korea Freedom Coalition, an estimated 3 million North Koreans have perished under the country’s brutal dictatorial regime since the mid-1990s. Families continue to starve to death as the North Korean government withholds food rations to entire regions of the nation. The government arbitrarily detains, tortures, and executes its citizens, including children, in a large network of prison and forced labor camps.

Listen closely as Rodman responds to Stephanopoulos’ questions about forced labor prisons, by saying. “We do the same thing here.”  

 “Guess what?”  “Guess what?” “Guess what?” says deep thinker Rodman.

    Imbecilic Rodman sounds like a five-year old with “guess what?” sprinkled throughout his interview. Why any media outlets consider this bizarre character worthy of an interview is mind boggling (and I say that as a basketball fan). He actually promoted his book, “Bad As I Want to Be,” by wearing a wedding dress, saying he was bisexual and was marrying himself. Betcha his “friend for life” Kim Jong Un didn’t know that. He’d be given a lifetime of prison hard labor in the “honest” North Korea for such actions. Korean homosexuals have applied for refugee status based on their fears, since some have been executed, with the Korean government saying they have been influenced by “capitalism” from the west.

    Let’s hope his 29 or 47 siblings (depending on whether you believe Dennis Rodman or his philandering father, Philander Rodman) are not a stupid as he is. This man is a pathetic clown.

    What an embarrassing moron!

    True….but more like him are seen at every NBA game and music club. Obama is willing and ready to keep enabling these people.

    I have no problem with the Harlem Globetrotters playing ball wherever they want but to give all the attention to Rodman doesnt make sense.

      I’m more concerned about people like you, Westnash, who support Liberal positions like these:

      “Westnash says:
      February 14, 2013 at 10:17 am
      I would propose an immediate 10% cut in all military expenditures including salaries. All of us can get by on 9 out of 10…..the govt. can as well…it is nothing but would make a huge dent in the problem.”

      “Westnash says:
      January 8, 2013 at 8:00 am
      There will be some changes in gun regulations at some point in 2013 and the Republicans who only tow the NRA line of “no” will lose. Wouldn’t you rather outsmart your opponent than trying unsuccessfully in throwing up a wall, that is crumbling down around you.”

      “Westnash says:
      January 11, 2013 at 3:41 am
      Obviously, Euby, it is easy for you to blame Marxism, but impossible to offer a solution for the Arizona Republicans. Hopefully there is someone in the party smarter than you.”

      “Westnash says:
      February 18, 2013 at 3:35 pm
      What I worry that the Secure Our Borders bunch really wants is to spend Billions more in hiring and fences which do nothing but increase the size of Govt.”

      And after Sheriff Arpaio broke his shoulder, you had not one kind or empathetic word, offering only this criticism instead:

      “Westnash says:
      March 1, 2013 at 9:06 am
      Interesting that when you have someone like Joe who continues to hang on…you have a real vacuum behind them. Their ego just wont let them develop a successor. Joe should retire soon and develop a strong successor…but I am afraid hubris has set in long ago.”

      Dennis Rodman has very little on you, Westnash!

      • Observer says:

        Bravo, euby! You had this guy nailed as a liberal early on. How right you were…despite all of his protestations to the contrary.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Thanks, Observer! I can smell a Liberal at 100 paces! ;-)

        Westnash is a “Trojan Horse Troll”. They are Liberals who post in Conservative blogs seeking to sew dissension and spread Liberal propaganda. Westnash isn’t effective because he has been outed so many times by so many posters here. He’s probably being paid to be a “Trojan Horse Troll”, as many such trolls are, and so is obliged to persist unless and until his handler calls him off.

    SInce obama has taken office, social misfits like Rodman are being accepted as mainstream thinkers. I think the body piercings on his face have caused bacteria to seep into his brain.
