Margaret Cho: Let My Bodies Go

Margaret Cho blogs about the journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling in an access on her blog alleged Let My Bodies Go:

I am actual anxious about Euna Lee and Laura Ling, the American journalists for Current TV who aloof got bedevilled to 12 years in a North Korean activity camp. It’s alarming and terrible. I could calmly see myself in their position. You are aggravating to do your job and again you get bent up in article huge and unstoppable.

What’s so messed up about this accurate bearings is that because they are Asian American, I anguish that North Korea feels beneath accusable about backbreaking them. They wouldn’t anytime accept the adventuresomeness to do this to white journalists, abnormally white macho journalists. Back Lee and Ling attending like their own, they feel they can amusement them like their own – and in North Korea, this is not a acceptable thing. And back Asian Americans are not as calmly authentic as “American” I’m abashed that these two will get absent in the shuffle. It’s the aberrant defenseless aftereffect of Asian American character played out to the affliction accessible conclusion. Could you brainstorm the aforementioned affair accident to Anthony Bourdain? He could accept adjourned his way out with a canteen of Crown Royal and some Marlboro reds. If Andrew Zimmern went there to eat alive octopus and was nabbed by Kim Jong Il, he’d be chargeless afore the tentacles chock-full fluctuant in his mouth.

But this is a austere situation. I am not abiding if bodies see Euna Lee and Laura Ling as American, but they are aloof as American as the angle of abandon of speech. Let my bodies go!

She directs bodies to Feministing and Angry Asian Man for pointers on how to allege out adjoin the imprisonment of Euna Lee and Laura Ling.

There seems to be actual little in the account about this alarming situation. This is absolutely disturbing.

To add some adverse angle to this abominable amount of a targeted abduction of the two Asian American women journalists, amuse apprehend the LA Weekly allotment about their colleague, Mitchell Koss, who was actual briefly bedfast alongside Ling and Lee– but bound appear by the Chinese. Koss has been bashful about the experience: Laura Ling and Euna Lee Face Silence
