Kim Jong Un is as dangerous as they come these days.
The North Korea dictator continues to test international relations with his reckless and irresponsible behavior.
But some Americans don’t see it that way because a retired NBA star just made a bizarre comment about the communist dictatorship.
Retired Chicago Bulls’ star Dennis Rodman has become somewhat of an “ambassador” to North Korea over the years.
Apparently, their “Supreme Leader” has a great affection for the former eccentric power forward.
And it seems to be a mutual admiration, because Rodman recently said in an interview that the country was not only progressive, but also a “24th century country.”
“In an interview with DuJour, former basketball star Dennis Rodman praised North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for his alleged success in modernizing the nation.
“He is changing North Korea so much it is really becoming a 24th Century country now,” Rodman gushed. “It’s more like they took down the Flintstone Age and put in the Jetsons. Out with the old, in with the new.”
Rodman, who has made several visits to the isolated communist dictatorship, seemed comically impressed that North Korean citizens speak highly of their absolute ruler.
“It’s like you’d think these people have a spell on them because all the talk about is him.
I mean it’s insane. I am so intrigued about how they live their lives through this guy,” he said, evidently unaware that North Korea’s Harry Potter-like magic transforms citizens who don’t enthusiastically worship their government into corpses.
Rodman celebrated North Koreans as hardworking people who “take pride in the simple things in life.”
“I’m not sure anyone there knows how to be lazy.
They have a lot of focus,” he marveled.
Asked where he stays when he visits North Korea, Rodman replied that he enjoys rooms in a “nice hotel” that is about 200 years old.
“I stay in the Jimmy Carter suite. It’s all marble,” he chirped.
DuJour mentions that Rodman’s latest sojourn in North Korea was sponsored by a “marijuana currency company” called PotCoin.com.
One can only imagine the residents of Pyongyang cringing in terror before a baffled Dennis Rodman when he offered to get them stoned or spark them up.
On the off chance that anyone takes Rodman’s whitewashing of inhuman evil seriously, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have a few thoughts about why North Korean citizens work hard, appreciate the simple things in life, and constantly sing hosannas to their rulers.”
Some believe that Rodman would be an asset in preventing a possible nuclear holocaust if the delusional dictator had an itchy finger.
But these new comments obviously suggest he would side with Kim Jong Un—which shows you the stranglehold Kim Jong Un has on the people who surround him.
In fact, Jong Un is reportedly starving his own people and they’ve been ordered to steal food.

Are Rodman and the North Korean people that gullible or incredibly naïve?
What exactly are they seeing that the rest of us don’t?
