The Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MIFAFF) were alerted to the outbreak after a large number of netizens - Koreans on the Internet - attacked the election of Korea's first non-pure-blooded member of parliament. Jasmine Lee, a supposedly Korean citizen who is in reality originally from the Philippines, was not directly elected by Koreans - which of course would be impossible - but was rather undemocratically chosen as a lawmaker under the proportional representation system by the ruling party.
Foaming at the mouth, one poster wrote "Following the immigrant wife Lee's entry to the Assembly, we can well predict the rise of unregistered foreigners and foreign women marrying in return for money. We'll see the truth of multiculturalism that exploits Koreans." Another added "Korea is a paradise for foreigners. Korea gives foreigners benefits which it doesn't even give to its nationals. Come to Korea, you can become lawmakers." before falling down in a spasm.
Many believe Jasmine Lee is part of a wider conspiracy against the Korean people, which is plotting to attack Korean ideas by trying to offer alternatives. It has long been suspected these conspiratorial foreigners are part of what has been dubbed a 'fifth-column movement', but alarmingly the National Intelligence Service appears to have no information on the first four columns or whether there are more than five.
A recent government survey of 2,500 people showed that only 36 percent of Koreans supported the coexistence of diverse races, religions and culture in Korea – less that half of the average of 74 percent among 18 European countries. While this is a good start, it raises the question of who these 36 percent are? Are they simply misguided, or are they an active part of the widening conspiracy in Korean society?
86.5 percent of those surveyed rightly identified that to really be Korean, you must have Korean ancestors, not deceptively take Korean citizenship to become a fake Korean. But that meant 13.5 percent of Koreans thought Korean blood or 'minjok' - the importance of which is taught in schools - was not important. Why are these people conspiring against the rest of us, why are they betraying their own blood, and how did they pass their exams?
One poster offered a potential solution to the foreigner problem, saying multicultural families should be killed because they "make the Korean gene rot."
The rabies outbreak has sparked a debate on whether foreigners should be allowed to stay in Korea if they are not killed, and enjoy the same rights as Koreans even if they try to infiltrate Korean society like spies by becoming citizens, with many people pointing out that if foreigners weren't here, there would have been no rabies outbreak to begin with. The argument seems to offer logical proof that foreigners are actually responsible for the rabies outbreak, and as such it may even be Korea's first confirmed case of bioterrorism. According to the MIFAFF people should not touch stray foreigners and if they do they should immediately visit a hospital.
The rabies outbreak is probably an inevitable result of the rise of multiculturalism. Everyone - apart from apparently these foreigners - knows from basic science classes how easily microorganisms or even colonies of bacteria can grow from a culture. So it can not be any surprise that the existence of multiple cultures massively increases the potential for diseases to spread outside the colonies foreigners create in places like Itaewon.
But there are voices speaking out in favor of Korea defending itself against the diseases of multiculturalism. Anders Breivik, who shot dead 69 people - mostly teenagers - in Norway July 22nd last year, said during his trial this week that his aim is to achieve a "monoculture" modeled on South Korea. These "role models" he said "are scientifically advanced, economically progressive" societies, "which will not accept multiculturalism or Cultural Marxist principles." But the Korean government denied Breivik's claim, saying that he had simply misunderstood Korean multiculturalism, which welcomes any foreigners - apart from those from economically poor countries, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, China, Japan, England and black people - who are prepared to come to Korea to live like Koreans and agree with everything we say.
However, Korean citizens - real ones rather than the fake ones who have converted and just pretend to be - were not convinced. "Unlike the United States or China, Korea has been a racially homogeneous country. I don't know why we need multiculturalism. I don't understand why the country accepts immigrants in this small country and make them threaten our livelihood" wrote one pure-blooded citizen, voicing the private thoughts of many. Some citizens did take issue with his stance however, saying that Korea was not a "small country".
As the conspiracy spreads near Seoul, sources close to the government promised to listen to netizens' voices and take into account their views since most foreigners can't vote.
