Woman Who Escaped From North Korea Slams ‘Woke’ American Universities As Crazy (VIDEO)

A young woman named Yeonmi Park, who escaped from North Korea, appeared on the Sean Hannity show this week and described her experience in American higher education as crazy.

She said that she always thought of America as a free country, but then at Columbia University, she found herself surrounded by people policing her language and claiming to be victims of oppression.

How insane does academia have to be for someone from North Korea to say this?

Yeonmi Park has experienced plenty of struggle and hardship, but she does not call herself a victim.

One of several hundred North Korean defectors settled in the United States, Park, 27, transferred to Columbia University from a South Korean university in 2016 and was deeply disturbed by what she found.

“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park said in an interview with Fox News. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”

Those similarities include anti-Western sentiment, collective guilt and suffocating political correctness.

Yeonmi saw red flags immediately upon arriving at the school.

Do people who work in higher education find this embarrassing? They should.

Our entire system of higher education needs to be overhauled.
