Kim Jong Il, star of Team America. Besides white Christian capitalist American gun owners, he's the only PC-acceptable scenario evil bad guy left.
"Critics: Iowa terror drill portrays immigration foes as killers."
A reporter asked me for comment about this and I replied:
Political correctness has severely limited the scope of fictional scenario writers. Red Dawn, remade with Chinese bad guys, is itself remade at great expense before release to make the bad guys North Koreans. Like the North Koreans have that many armed sampans to project force across the Pacific. The Sum of All Fears gets made into a movie without Jihadis but with American neoNazis as bad guys. Of course, it is not like Jihadis have flown planes into American buildings or shot up American army bases before, right? The Manchurian Candidate gets remade with neither Manchurians nor Communists, but with evil capitalists.
What does that leave the PC scenario writers? White "extremists", almost always racists and neoNazis (although "Christian religious fanatics" are sometimes substituted). And, trust me, they are almost always "firearm enthusiasts." Because of course firearms ownership predisposes people to being a racist terrorist, right? Why don't these schmucks take a leaf from Hollywood and make all their bad guys North Koreans? Or, like Team America, at least malevolent interstellar cockroaches.
Or how about White Christian Religious Fanatic neoNazi Gun-toting North Koreans?
Now there's a plan.
Well, like they say, "DURKA DURKA MOHAMMED JIHAD!"
