War with North Korea may be imminent, as Kim Jong Un continues to threaten the United States and her territories and allies. Some Americans might not understand why diplomacy hasn’t worked over the past couple of decades, and could be terrified by the accelerating rhetoric of both sides.

TheBlaze’s Buck Sexton joined Mike Opelka on today’s “Pure Opelka” to discuss the elusive psychology of the North Korean people. He explained that their “reality is distorted” by the “funhouse mirror of the Kim autocracy.”

He said Americans need to understand that we are not dealing with a people that have simple economic and geographic differences. It is a “whole next level of aggression and militarism,” he explained, and Mike agreed, that there is a “cult of personality with the Kim family” that is like the previous administration on “super steroids.”

Sexton also gravely noted that the atmosphere in North Korea is more like that of World War II Germany, with a sense of racial and cultural superiority and supremacy that borders on “Hitlerian.”

He advised people who want to know more about this mindset to read “The Cleanest Race: How North Koreans See Themselves.” A people who are brainwashed to view themselves as flawlessly superior to others will view any action against them, including sanctions and defensive positioning of troops, as aggression against their greatness.
