The book is a new look into the two major events of modern Korean history: Impeachment by fraud in 2017 and 5.18 Gwangju Uprising in 1980. Chapter One deals with the question everyone asks—how it happened that the South Korean President Park Geun-hye was impeached by fraud?
The book “Gwangju Uprising Overthrown by Moon Jae-in's 5·18 Tear” comes with the two major topics of modern Korean history: Impeachment by fraud in 2017 and 5.18 Gwangju Uprising in 1980. While the larger part of the current volume is about the new facts of Gwangju Uprising, the first 82 pages in Chapter One deals with the question everyone asks—how it happened that the South Korean President Park Geun-hye was impeached by fraud.
Strongman Moon Jae-in, who took the political advantage of President Park’s impeachment by fraud, justifies it by talking about ‘candlelight revolution.’ But what is candlelight revolution? One cannot grasp what it implies without first knowing 5.18 Gwangju Uprising. What connects the pro-North Korean group’s term ‘candlelight revolution’ to 5.18 Gwangju Uprising is a narrative, which the book reveals as a false narrative.
So, what really happened in South Korea in 2017? ‘Impeachment by fraud’ or ‘candlelight revolution’? It largely depends on one’s perspective of 5.18 Gwangju Uprising although there is a time gap of 38 years.
2018년 신간 『문재인의 5·18 눈물로 뒤집힌 광주사태』는 2018년 5·18 역사 전쟁의 해에 문재인 ‘보궐’대통령에게 ‘사기 탄핵’과 광주사태에 대하여 팩트 융단폭격해 주는 책이다. 본서는 한국 근현대사의 가장 중요한 두가지 핵심 주제인 ‘사기 탄핵’과 광주사태를 다룬다. 제1장 사기 탄핵(Impeachment by Fraud)은 총 82장으로 구성되어 있다. 한국에서는 2017년의 동일사건에 대하여 한쪽에서는 ‘사기 탄핵’이라고 하고, 다른 한쪽에서는 ‘촛불혁명’이라고 한다. 과연 어느 쪽 주장이 맞는지를 독자들은 본서 1장에서 보게 될 것이다.
