[The Chosun Ilbo, August 6 2008] Teaching Children to Hate

Children in elementary schools outside Seoul who took part in a backpacking trip to experience cultural events in the capital stopped by tents set up by fugitive members of the People’s Association for Measures Against Mad Cow Disease at the Jogye temple downtown and wrote in their guestbook comments insulting President Lee Myung-bak. Photographs and video footage of this incident were spread throughout the Agora debate site on the popular Internet portal Daum. One child wrote "Lee Myung-bak die! Are you crazy?" Another child wrote that the president was worse than a dog. There was one child who wrote that Lee must be doing what he does because he was not born in Korea and told him to leave the presidential office before his "epileptic fits" grew worse.
