Multiple media outlets are reporting North Korean Defector Yeonmi Park’s shock that, “she viewed the US as country of free thought and free speech – until she went to college here.”
Yeonmi Park attended Columbia University and was immediately struck by what she viewed anti-Western sentiment in the classroom and a focus on political correctness that had her thinking “even North Korea isn’t this nuts.”
The 27-year-old told The Post that she couldn’t believe she would be asked to do “this much censoring of myself” at a university in the United States. “I literally crossed the Gobi Desert to be free and I realized I’m not free, America’s not free,” she said.
These days more and more apparently intelligent people seem to upspeak. That’s the irritating “Valley Girl” inflection where every sentence sounds like a question. Don’t these people trust their own thoughts and words?
Perhaps upspeakers’ brains are fried after being fed a steady diet of DEI, ESG, and BIPOC. For the uninitiated, these initials stand for “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion”, a corporate stock/investment rating based on Environmental awareness, Social justice and (right-minded) Governance to enhance the lives of “Black, Indigenous, People of Color.” “Privilege” gets the full word. White people must “check their privilege at the door” and shut up under the current era of Stalinesque cancel culture.
Black American slaves used to have some version of Simon Legree as their master. Now the woke white liberals have assumed that role. Even President Biden views BIPOCs as helpless morons whom only the government can rescue.
I’m proud to say that this was one of the most productive legislative sessions we’ve ever had. We made tremendous strides in strengthening Oklahoma’s economy and helping improve the lives of our citizens.
Altogether, the governor signed close to 600 bills, which included nearly 15 of mine. One of those will help our dedicated 33,000 state employees by modernizing the annual state employee flexible benefit allowance to better address ever-increasing healthcare costs.
Multi-platinum selling country rock group ALABAMA has announced a new date to their “50th Anniversary Tour” with a stop in Tulsa at BOK Center on Saturday, October 23.

It’s been 50 years since Jeff Cook, Teddy Gentry and Randy Owen left the cotton farms of Fort Payne, Alabama to spend the summer playing music in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina bar called The Bowery. It’s a classic American tale of rags to riches. From humble beginnings picking cotton in the fields to international stars, ALABAMA went on to sell 80 million albums and change the face and sound of country music.
As the Biden Administration effectively eliminates our Southern Border, Tulsa Today morns Alma Barragan, killed while campaigning for mayor of Moroleon in the violence-plagued Guanajuato state of Mexico – this makes 34 candidates (to date) murdered nationwide ahead of upcoming 6 June elections.
According to Sky News, Ms Barragan was running on the ticket of the Citizen’s Movement party, which in a statement said, “It is unthinkable that participating in political life means putting one’s life at risk. This is the most violent election in Mexican history… and we are not willing to act as if that is normal.“
Of course most American media cannot be bothered, but the killing occurred the same day she posted a Facebook Live video sharing her exact whereabouts – inviting voters to come and speak to her.
