Dennis Rodman shows Kim Jung un his new line of vodka.

NIT – Former NBA star Dennis Rodman took a team of  ex-NBA players to Pyongyang, North Korea, for a basketball game last week, and met with the country’s supreme leader, Kim Jung Un.

In a video released Monday, January 13th, Rodman is pictured with Un, showing him a table with bottles of his new line of vodka, called Bad Ass Vodka.  The two are seen laughing and embracing.  Thousands of Un’s people are locked in gulags at this time, and much of the populace is starving.  Rodman sang happy birthday to Un.

Rodman lead the team that included former NBA players Craig Hodges, Kenny Anderson, Doug Christie, Charles D. Smith, Cliff Robinson, and Vin Baker. The game was part of a celebration marking Kim Jong Un’s birthday.

Rodman calls his trips to North Korea, listed by the United States as a terrorist nation and which it is still technically at war with, “basketball diplomacy.”  He has shrugged off the recent execution of Kim’s uncle.

The men who played for Rodman say that North Korea did not pay them to come and play basketball. North Korean authorities are holding an American, Kenneth Bae, since November 2012.

    Dennis is one of those “gentlemen” who, without the benefit of pro basketball, would probably have collected several bullet holes long ago.

      Please explain to us what King Il Sung, Kim Jong Il, and Kim Jong Un have done for the people of North Korea?

      Make sure you ask the hundreds of thousands of people in labour camps. Ask the millions of people who survived near starvation (whilst their leaders turned down free food aid).

      The people of North Korea do not need a foo-foo type of vodka right now, but basic human rights and freedom. They need food. They need help getting what you take for granted.

      By pandering to the Kim Dynasty, you hurt the people of North Korea.
