The Left attacks Otto Warmbier for being ‘White’
As you have heard, Otto Frederick Warmbier had passed away on the 19th of June.
While visiting North Korea as a tourist in January 2016, Otto was arrested after being accused of stealing a propaganda poster from his hotel lobby. He was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour. For all those who don’t know, North Korean Prisons are hell-holes.
Otto had arrived safely in America, but within a week, died from this injuries after what they had done to him. No one knows what happened exactly but doctors blamed “awful, torturous mistreatment” by North Korea.
After his death, social media reminded the world of how much apathy there was towards his capture because of him being a ‘white male’.
This is how the media reported his capture in 2016:

Now, I understand the Left doesn’t like Trump or his supporters (in their view, all whites) but, calling Otto’s capture ‘deserved’ is just reprehensible and frankly disgusting.
Yet another example of how low the ‘regressive’ left has fallen. They leave common decency at the door when it comes to conservatives and ‘white’ men.
