Rhie Won-bok (b 1946) is a contemporary Korean cartoonist. He writes pedantic books about the politics and culture of countries. He is also an asshole.
The following photos were taken from my English copy of…whatever this bullshit book is called. The following is, at best, misinformed, at worst, bigoted. I’ve selected the atrocities that can be contained and explained in one or two frames.
The author is obviously an enraged smoker. He spent several pages of this book complaining about not being able to smoke in offices and at restaurants in America. Ahem, I’ve been known to indulge as well, but my proclivities don’t make me ironically consider the effects of cigarettes on my health. Shoot – why elaborate? It’s obviously ridiculous.
Whether true or not, a writer should use a fact checker. People who make this assertion hold author’s accountable for what they write.
This is just a sampling of some of the gut busting, jaw dropping, outrageous crap this guy espouses. You’re a dick, Mister.
I researched (cough googled cough) him and found out that a couple of years back he generated a righteous shit storm for including in this series conspiracy theories about Jews in the United States. He has since apologized to the KOREAN AMERICAN community for endangering their relationship with the all-powerful Jews and deleted those sections. If you’re thinking that I don’t have excerpts from this, you’re right. But this guy does.
