Former lawmaker Choi said this while attending a book concert held by Democratic Party lawmaker Min Hyeong-bae with lawmaker Kim Yong-min in Gwangju the day before yesterday (19th) after he published “The Politics of Secession.”
Park Gu-yong, a philosophy professor at Chonnam National University who was nominated as the highest member of the Democratic Party last year but then declined, served as the moderator. When asked, “Should we say that we have now become a republic of prosecutors?” former lawmaker Choi Kang-wook responded, “Isn’t it a republic? It has become an animal kingdom,” and “The republic.” He said, “That’s not the word to apply to that place.”
Professor Park compared Korean politics these days to George Orwell’s “Animal Farm,” which criticized the former Soviet communist regime. In response, former lawmaker Choi said, “If you look at Animal Farm, it’s not often that females come out and set up. Now to surpass that,” he said.
Former Rep. Choi immediately stated, “I am not saying anything disparaging about ‘females’, I am just calling ‘females’ as ‘females.’”
At the same time, he said, “I want to take the path of becoming the most powerful perpetrator of this ruthless regime, represented by the Yoon Seok-yeol family,” and added, “If I don’t do that, it will be difficult to tame those beasts.”
Rep. Kim Yong-min, who attended the book concert, said to the host who asked about ways to overcome the “dictatorship of the prosecution” that “the anti-Yoon solidarity will become clear only when the impeachment of the president is proposed.”
The current and former members of the National Assembly who attended this day’s event are from the pro-Lee Jae-myung faction’s first-elected group, the Democratic Party’s hardliners.
