North Korean defector Yeonmi Park has warned of ‘Marxist’ parallels between cancel culture in US third level education and the totalitarian regime of Kim Jong-un. Speaking about cancel culture, Ms Park said: “My enemy used to be Kim Jong-un, but now so many Marxists are sending me death threats”. The 27-year-old told the Fox News Hannity programme on Monday that after she fled the North Korean regime and arrived in the US she presumed she was finally in a free society where freedom of expression would not be censored.

However, the reality she discovered on US campuses was very different to her expectations.

Speaking on the Hannity programme she said: “I fell in love with this country, this is such a wonderful country.”

She added: “Was I sitting in North Korea’s classroom or in America’s classroom?

“I couldn’t believe why people were hating their own people that much.”

She said that the constant hatred of “white America” reminding her of the anti-US rhetoric in her own country.

She continued: “My enemy used to be Kim Jong-un.

“I have been on Kim Jong-un’s killing list of people for many years because I spoke out.

The North Korean defector said US cancel culture is a sad “irony”.

She said: “I crossed the Gobi desert to be free and now I thought I live in a country where I can say what I believe and have my freedom to think.

“However, now I have to constantly censor my speech because in the name of a safe place.
