Has this guy been paying attention for the past 7.5 years?

A South Korean education official made some waves by saying this:

“I believe that we should solidify a class system in our society,” Mr. Na, 47, was quoted as telling Kyunghyang reporters over dinner on Thursday. “The people should be treated like dogs and pigs. It’s enough just to feed them and let them live.”

Asked who “the people” were, Mr. Na said they were the “99 percent,” adding that he was trying to belong to “the 1 percent,” Kyunghyang said.

He compared South Korea’s so-called 99 percent to “blacks and Hispanics in the United States who don’t even try to enter politics or climb the social ladder.”

That's a pretty strange comparison to make at a time that the U.S. has a black president.
