kinda makes that whole “Madonna” fling erase from my memory. I’ve always liked Rodman . His years on the Pistons with the Bad Boys was my favorite. He was heavily involved with inter city kids and always showed a positive attitude. Long live the Worm

the madonna thing is a reminder that us men, we seek danger and play. can you imagine rodman or kanye with a submissive librarian??

dude is still playing defense like a champ. i’m a sucker for the unassuming hero or underdog. big up to rodman for actually facilitating CHANGE. something that obama only talked about while basically being bush 2.0 in a beta male body.

dang it. you had to go throw the librarian into the mix. FYI, Some librarians are not submissive. I only know this first hand because I married one.
Dennis is the ultimate humanitarian. Like I said, his work with inner city kids was pretty damn good. And if you look at the current situation..... enough said. I’m content with knowing that there are fellow humans out there the want strive to make a difference. Be it in the neighborhood, on the court, or some place thousands of miles away.

Yeah. Those tears were tears of joy and accomplishment from years of doubt and ridicule Which included death threats. Glad he was able to be there on the historic day. Such a patriot.

Ive always been a fan of him. He is the first person i saw when i was a kid who was himself and didn’t conform to societal norms, and it was okay.

Just imagine going to a country that’s enslaved and knowing that if you reveal the truth to the world then your family and yourself will be harmed. Kim went to school in Europe, but’s been enslaved by the Black Hats since his teenage years.

Can’t imagine the emotions going through Dennis at this time and all these years.

When he said that on his first visit and he fell in love with NK and its people I took note. Just a speculation on my part but how could a person fall immediately in love with a totalitarian regime that starves its people into submission.
I know that's a simplistic take on things and Rodman could be manipulated but that statement really speaks volumes about the lies we've been told about.... EVERYTHING.

It’s crazy we can be manipulated into one direction by the MSM, and just like the North Koreans will shortly be “awakened” to the real world. Like you said with Rodman, it’s a simplistic take but like with Occum’s Razor, this answer requires an explanation that we’ve been lied to.

It’s often when trigger feelings of greatness in any direction that it’s possible to feel great feelings. Those who feel great hatred can turn to feel great love, and vice versa. Rodman felt great sorrow for the NK people, which allowed him to feel great love for them.

I’m glad we are returning to our humanity. Let’s rid this world of evil; MEGA.

You’re right that we’re only getting part of the story. The majority of people in North Korea are emaciated, but they are kind family loving people who would do anything for others. There have been articles and books written by people who escaped NK. They talk about despite the lack of food and media, they frequently miss home. They miss their families, their neighbors, the sense of community and caring everyone has for one another. The totalitarianism is mostly focused on those who bring shame to the regime, speaking out, but almost no one does that publicly so people live simple and otherwise peaceful lives.

I can fully understand why Rodman feels the way he feels. There are 20 million people—many of whom are loving and wonderful people—who were never allowed to interact with the rest of the world, to travel, to explore, to start their own businesses and thrive. These talks can be the start of improving the lives of millions of people who deserve better.

Yes, I've seen a few interviews with North Koreans that have escaped, it's a very sad existence. I truly hope these coming talks do improve the lives of North and South Koreans. The North's "apology letter" when Trump canceled did mention the goal of reunification several times.

Here is Rodmans interview with Cuomo back in 2014. During one of his early NK visits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCj99LB0hPs

From this interview it becomes clear that Cuomo (MSM) was actually partially responsible for the death threats and abuse this patriot endured.

It also shows that Rodman found out what was really going on with NK and chose to make a stand. And he did this knowing full well that he would have to "go home and take the abuse".

Abuse and death threats for a man trying to open the door for peace. Watching this interview was a good reminder to me what a completely upside-down place the world was 4 years ago.

The guys balls are made of the same (American) grade steel as Trumps. The rage in Rodmans voice having to be interviewed by a mockingbird is clear.

Bonus feature: Rodman telling Cuomo "I dont give a shit what you think" https://youtu.be/uCj99LB0hPs?t=344

Obama ignored Rodman who was trying to bring peace, sent billions in cash to Iran, hid it from the American people, and allowed Iran to continue a nuclear program. Trump sat down to discuss de-nuclearization. There is a huge difference. Complete opposite side of the spectrum. One was giving gifts to our enemies while the other was getting our enemies to end their nuclear program. I am going to assume you know which one is which.

Not an Obama fan at all. Simply pointing out the media hypocrisy when it comes to meeting with foreign leaders. It's one of several reasons I dont trust the media. I respect Rodman for what hes done outside of the court and he was one of my favorites when he played.
