The Huffington Post, Salon and Larry Wilmore all viciously attacked Otto Warmbier last year in shocking propaganda pieces which are worth taking a second look at in the wake of Warmbier's tragic death.
Warmbier, an American college student, was imprisoned in North Korea and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for allegedly stealing a propaganda banner.
Warmbier was released last week after almost a year and a half in prison, but he was in a coma which the North Koreans claimed was caused by "botulism" and the consumption of a "sleeping pill." American doctors found no evidence of botulism and determined he suffered a "severe neurological injury." His father said he believes Otto was "terrorized and brutalized." Warmbier passed away on Monday afternoon.
The Huffington Post attacked Warmbier last year and said he deserved to be imprisoned because he's white:
“That’s what the hell he gets. Good for him!” My mother had uttered those words in her typical matter-of-fact tone one morning as she watched the news. “He” was Michael Fay, an 18-year-old from Ohio who had confessed to vandalizing cars in Singapore, and was subsequently sentence to six lashes from a rattan cane. I was in sixth grade and all I could imagine was how horrible the pain would be. My mother was unmoved at the thought, remarking, “He earned that.”The Nightly Show's Larry Wilmore similarly attacked Warmbier and mocked him for crying while begging to be released:
Salon wrote an article last year highlighting Wilmore's commentary and said Warmbier "might be America's biggest idiot frat boy":
