|The Theme is Freedom|
People there took to the streets to express anger at the government over high prices, and vented their fury against President Hassan Rouhani. Fifty-two people were arrested for chanting "harsh slogans". The protests spread to other cities in the north-east, and and some developed into broader anti-government demonstrations, calling for the release of political prisoners and an end to police beatings.... Slogans have been chanted against not just Mr Rouhani but Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and clerical rule in general.
Demonstrators were reportedly heard yelling slogans like "The people are begging, the clerics act like God". Protests have even been held in Qom, a holy city home to powerful clerics.There is also anger at Iran's interventions abroad. In Mashhad, some chanted "not Gaza, not Lebanon, my life for Iran", a reference to what protesters say is the administration's focus on foreign rather than domestic issues."
When the Mullahs rigged their elections in 2009, the world was watching. And by world, I mean Obama, Hillary, Lynch, Comey and McCabe. They were taking notes on how to subvert an election to use in 2016. Funny thing is, it was of course Obama, not Trump, who was illegally colluding with hostile regimes when he ran for president.
"The last widespread and sustained protests in Iran occurred in 2009, after fraudulent elections. At the time, President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shamefully sat on their hands, saying and doing nothing to support the protesters. They later justified their silence by claiming that protesters wouldn’t want U.S. support, which would enable the Iranian regime to paint the protests as a foreign plot.
For example, Lech Walesa, the leader of the Solidarity movement that challenged and eventually brought down communism in Poland in the 1980s, credited President Ronald Reagan’s unabashed support for the movement’s success.".......
|Iran, 2009: "Obama, Obama, are you with us or are you with them?"|
He Was On the Wrong Side of History.
Thank God we have a real American president now who stands with freedom-seeking peoples of the world and not with their jailers:
|"All the world over, so easy to see|
People everywhere just wanna be free
Listen, please listen, that's the way it should be
Peace in the valley, people got to be free"--The Young Rascals
CNN has torn themselves away from their monomaniacal Ahab-like Great White Truck-Gate obsession long enough to report on the demonstrations--the pro-government demonstrations, in which participants are bussed in like professional Democrat voters. The Times is also predictably carrying water for the Mullahs, casting the quest for freedom as a mere economic grievance; "'Death to Khameni!' he screamed fiscally."
And of course, twisting themselves into pretzels to blame Trump.
The Professional Liars' abject toady-ism before theocratic military dictators is truly disgusting, especially coming from people who make a living off of free speech, and endlessly brag about their fearless devotion to truth. Their moral retardation is on full display.
MEMO TO MEDIA: These little brown people deserve freedom too. Pull your heads out of your ascots.
