North Korean leader Kim Jong Un certainly leads a repressive regime, but his latest directive may have crossed the line and it will definitely shock you.

Kim Jong Un has reportedly issued “a directive that prohibits citizens from making sarcastic remarks about what some may or may not label an oppressive regime.”

North Korean citizens have recently been warned against the use in casual conversation of sarcasm directed against the regime of national leader Kim Jong Un, with state security officers threatening that even indirect criticisms of party leadership will not be forgiven, North Korean sources say.”

The warnings were reportedly given in mass meetings organized by the government.

“Expressions of public discontent with the North Korean regime have spread widely in the tightly controlled state this year, with graffiti mocking production slogans appearing at a construction site in Pyongyang and “more serious” scrawlings attacking Kim Jong Un personally found in areas near China, sources told RFA in earlier reports.”
