What the ... outage?!?!?

As Burndog walks away from his Herr Consoleman and Eve keeps bringing up hers I feel left out. It has been a long time since I mentioned my Herr Consoleman, the real one, and his sad band of racist fucktards at Korea Sentry.

I was going to visit there to see what Herr Consoleman is rambling about now and then mock him here. A friend pointed out that Korea Sentry is DOWN. Lo and behold, it is. If you go there you get the following message.

It has been down for 2+ weeks. I have to wonder just who they will blame for it being down.

Foreigner Teachers? After all, this is their biggest bugaboo. They blame foreign teachers for just about everything.

Immigrants to Korea? They do seem to be their second favourite whipping boy.

Vitamin200: The recent massacre in Norway was caused by multiculturalism ... Korea must avoid this dangerous multicultural path.

China? Probably tied with Immigrants as their second favourite whipping boy.

Herr Consoleman himself: Fuck China!

dangun harabuji: Still, it'd take a really long time to dilute the Northern heritage. Although the amounts of chinese cockroaches gaining citizenship is kind of worrying.

xcreaturex100: Chinese, probably island chink, that's why we had to make refute videos against these chink trolls.

The Japanese? Another favourite of theirs.

Jews? Yes, anti-Semitism also has a home on Korea Sentry.

shihtzuumji in a thread about Steve Jobs dying: The man was a killer and a Jew wannabe.

Vitamin200: Korea can't become a Jewish-worshiping nation. All these bullshit ideas such as "multiculturalism", "human rights" and "globalism" are Jewish ideas that have plagued Korea and a lot of European countries.

Herr Consoleman: you know Hollywood is control by Jews and a lot of non-American directors and producers and if you're redneck then there isn't much future within entertainment industry.

Korean Women? After all if they even think about not marrying a Korean they are stupid and evil.

MidwestInsahm82: Little do these stupid yellowcab sellouts know that dating or worse, marrying a white or non-Korean male leads to marriage problems in the future, and even identity crisis for their kids.

I'm all for Korean-only marriage. I know this may sound off topic, but this is why horses that participate in races are PURE bred. Nobody wants to buy a cheap mixed-breed horse. Same with racial purity.

Herr Consoleman: Korean women are bossy when it comes to Korean men but submissive when it comes to smelly Whiteys.

What can I say, they seem to hate everyone not Korean, and even some Koreans. It is hard to say who exactly they will blame but odds are they will try and put it on foreigners somehow.

Douchey Dave: 1st Encounter

My introduction to David Thiessen aka Douchey Dave happened on YouTube years ago. He left a typical Douchey Dave comment on my old YouTube Channel.

"I wonder why you do this.? Can you tell me?"

This wasn't left in reference to any one video, just in the general comment section of the channel. It was followed up by this one.

"Foreigners only have themselves to blame for much of what transpires during their sojourn in this country, we are not blameless and the fault does not lie with the Korean nation only.

Take a hard look at your own actions, look at your attitude and behavior through an outsider's eye and see if you are happy with what you see."

I would discover that this is classic Douchey Dave. He takes the stand that whatever happens it is ALWAYS the fault of the foreigner. No matter how fucked over the foreigner gets it is always their fault according to good old Double D. It really makes you wonder how he functions with his head so far up his ass.

I left a couple of replies, which formed the nucleus of my later response. Then I looked up his YouTube Channel. The twat basically just went around to any videos that criticised South Korea in any way, whether real or perceived by DD, and spread his batshit. That is the sum of his contribution to YouTube. Much like his contribution around the web and in print. To be a troll.

Since my replies elicited no response, and in the time honoured tradition of ranting and responding, I made a video for Davey boy. :) Below is a transcript of it. At first, based on the insane logic and blind defence of South Korea I figured DD was just another Kyopo or Korean with an axe to grind, like the KKKlan members at KS. It was only after making this and searching his name on the web that I found out who he is, and just how batshit crazy he is.


Good afternoon. This is a bit of a rant but also a response. YouTube member davidarchthiessen posted a couple of comments on my channel's main page. I really don't know what to make of the comments he made.

Basically it seemed like he started off by saying it is the foreigners fault if things go pear shaped. If they have any problems, if something bad happens it's YOUR fault. And ONLY the foreigners are at fault. Never the Koreans.

He did have a bit of a point, and not just the one on his head. Sometimes with your attitude or your outlook you can create your own problems. I do that. We all do that.

Everybody has bad days. Sometimes your actions are so strange that it REALLY makes you look bad. Like if I were to, ohhh, take a phesant and hammer it to death. That would make me look very bad. Maybe a little "evil". Maybe I would even look like a psycho.That would be my fault and no one elses.

It works both ways though. Sometimes people create the problems for you. Sometimes it is their attitudes and what they do. Like if I am walking down the street and I hear a Korean say Meechin Miguk to me. Well, who just created the problem here? Him or me? Me because I learned enough Korean to understand he is being rude or him for being a rude asshole?

So, I do agree with him to a point. Sometimes foreigners do create their own problems here. I have done it. Other foreigners have done it. But it doesn't ALWAYS work out that way. According to Douchey Dave it is always the foreigners fault. That is pretty fucked up.

Then he posted "Why do you do this?"

Why do I do what? Why do I make videos? Why do I talk about life? Why do I criticize Korea? (Which does seem to be the burr in his saddle.) All of the above? I mean, it is not actually a bad question but qualify it. What do I do that you want to know about?

Why do I make videos? I want to. I can. So, I do it. Ok, that is being a little glib. I do it for my friends. A good friend got me started on YouTube or I probably never would have. So, some of it I do for him. Some of it I do for me. Some of it I do for family. Some of it I do to try and share my experiences in life with other people and friends. I have met some nice people through this and I have met a lot of people full of haterade. Which one are you davidarchthiessen?

Why do I talk about life? Well, you know what? I am living it! I'm not going to talk about your life because I am not living your life. What happens in your life, well, I don't know. Maybe YOU should share that with other people? You might like it. You might not. If you don't then you stop doing it.

When I view other peoples videos, well, except for the comedy ones, but the life ones I view them to learn from their experiences. Sometimes I learn lessons about myself. I hope people have the same experience with mine.

Sometimes in doing my videos it makes me examine what I think. Or comments I get back make me examine some of what I have said. Maybe I was a too harsh. Maybe I am taking something the wrong way. I would like to think that I am open minded enough to learn from that.

Why do I criticize Korea? I don't JUST criticize Korea. Granted a lot of my rants do that. But, you know what, I am living here. I pay taxes here. Income tax, pension, health care, sales tax. I pay that money out and if I want to criticize something about Korea ... I will.

If I was living in Canada odds are my rants would mostly be about Canada. No one country is perfect my friend. None! South Korea, Canada, America, Zimbabwe ... you get the idea. I could keep throwing out the names of every country.

No country is perfect. They all have problems. And sometimes, especially if it is a big problem like racism, if you don't talk about it then it will never get fixed.

After looking at your responses, reading your comments, and posting my replies I took a look at your YouTube Channel. I wonder why YOU are here? Are you just here to attack people you feel are saying disparaging things about Korea?

You created your account just over a week ago. All you seem to have done is piss people off by posting on their channel how much you don't like them. Which makes them post back on yours about what a douche you are. If that is all you are here for ... go away troll.

Why not try and contribute something? Make some videos about what you think makes Korea great. I challenge anyone out there ... make some videos about what makes your country great. If there is something in your country that ticks you off make a video about that.

There are a lot of good things in Korea. Tell us about them! Educate us about the country and what makes it great. If you aren't going to do that ... piss off.

If you need help I can give you some ideas. If you need some stock footage I can take some for you and send them to you. No problem. I will help you if you really want to do that.

If you do that. If you start to contribute and not just with your stupid comments. (Ok they weren't all stupid. "Why do you do it?" was an ok question.) People will take you seriously and won't just think you are a troll.As it stands right now I think you are just a troll. But I made this anyway. :)

Davidarchthiessen, have a good day. Relax. Drink some soju. If it raining where you are a little makkeolli and pajeon always goes good with the rain.

What the ... honour?

Stig emailed me this headline from Yahoo News. It is about a current trend in South Korea for people to have the ashes of deceased loved ones transformed into beads to wear.

I am betwixt and between about what I think of it. On the one hand everyone grieves in different ways. I know of one woman, Korean, who had a special crucifix made to hold some of her dead husband's ashes. It is a touching gesture.

On the other hand it seems a litdtle morbid. Especially when you read about the guy who had his father's bones dug up to be cremated and then made into beads for him to wear.

In the end I lean more towards thinking "to each their own". Many people keep the ashes of loved ones in an urn in a place of honour within their homes. Now some will wear them. While it isn't something I would do if it brings them comfort and doesn't hurt anyone so be it.

More Mad Cow Stupidity.

A tip of the hat to Korea Beat for translating the article about how Young Koreans fear that the FTA with the US will lead to Mad Cow infected beef coming to South Korea. According to the article:

54.7% of those in their 30s believe that the KORUS FTA will cause rampant mad cow disease, and 69.1% of women in their 30s are worried about it, the survey found.

After being in South Korea during the various bouts of Mad Cow bullshit I can't say I am surprised by the poll. There was a lot of batshit reasoning floating around then. A lot of fears were played on to get people riled up. A lot of anti-American bullshit was heard. Which makes the part of the poll that showed a majority of people feared becoming a US colony due to free trade not very surprising either.
