Protests have raged for days throughout Iran, as people rebel against an oppressive regime that rules with an iron fist. This is not the first time the people have risen up, resulting in rivers of blood among those craving freedom.
What’s going on in Iran? – June 2009 – Green Revolution
Fact Check: Was Obama ‘silent’ on Iran 2009 protests?
On June 13, 2009, Iran announced that incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won a landslide victory. His main opponent, Mir Hossein Moussavi, had already alleged blatant violations. After the announcement, angry crowds of Moussavi supporters took to the streets.
SOUNDS LIKE THE DEMOCRATS AFTER 2016, ONLY WE’RE NOT SAVAGES LIKE THE MULLAHS ARE
June 15, Obama gave remarks on the situation. He said he was watching the news from Iran. It is “up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iran’s leaders will be,” he said, adding that “we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran.”
Asked why he would not spell out potential consequences for Iran over its behavior, the president replied, “Because I think that we don’t know yet how this thing is going to play out. I know everybody here is on a 24-hour news cycle. I’m not.”
[CtH: He was fast enough with condemning COPS, without having ANY of the facts. What a hypocrite.]
His silence validated the mullahs, despite the blood on their hands and the nuclear centrifuges in their tunnels,” presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty alleged last year in the race for the Republican nomination.
THE MEDIA CONTINUES TO SCREAM THAT THIS STINKING PIG IS A CHRISTIAN. HE’S NEVER GIVEN ANY INDICATION HE WAS ANYTHING BUT A MUSLIM MAGGOT.
Anti-Regime Protests Break Out Across Iran
The crowds drilled to chant ‘death to America’ went off the script and demanded the end of the Islamic regime instead. Videos show Iranians chanting ‘Death to the dictator’ and ‘Death to Rouhani’.
President Obama, busy cementing his ‘legacy’ with a Nuclear Deal with the Iranian regime, refused to show any support for the pro-democracy movement in Iran. He even threw a lifeline the Iranian regime at a time when international sanctions were finally beginning to show results.
As columnist Eli Lake explained, writing for the Bloomberg, “Obama wasn’t just reluctant to show solidarity in 2009, he feared the demonstrations would sabotage his secret outreach to Iran.”
“Obama from the beginning of his presidency tried to turn the country’s ruling clerics from foes to friends,” Lake added.
President Obama’s Nuclear Deal allowed Iran access to assets frozen in the US to the tune of $100 billion. The Obama administration even shipped $1.7 billion in cash to the regime, described as ‘settlement of old legal claim.’
With President Trump in office, those cash payments seem to have stopped. Buoyed by the cash flow thanks to Obama-Kerry Nuclear Deal, regime overstretched itself militarily, funding and manning pro-Iranian militia in Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Tehran even resumed aid to the Gaza-based Islamist terror outfit Hamas — Hezbollah’s estranged evil Sunni twin, patching up ties strained by Iran’s intervention in the Syrian conflict.
Iran cuts social media access as unrest turns deadly
Iran cut access to social media on Sunday in a bid to head off further protests after days of unrest that saw two people killed and dozens arrested.
The interior minister warned protesters will “pay the price” as footage on social media showed thousands marching across the country overnight in the biggest test for the Islamic republic since mass demonstrations in 2009.
[CtH: The whiners who “protest” in the U.S. of A. should be kissing the Constitution in gratitude that they can do so with virtual impunity.]
#NeverTrump National Review Licked ‘the Mud Off of George W. Bush’s Boots’ While He Allowed Iraq’s Christians to Be Ethnically Cleansed
The Bush administration showed absolutely zero concern for the Christian communities of Iraq,” said Zmirak. “And we’re not talking five or six hundred people; 1.3 million Christians lived in Iraq when the Iraq War started, and they have lived there for two thousand years. They were some of the earliest Christian communities in the world. Way before there were Catholics in Rome, or before Constantinople existed, there were Christians in Iraq.”
“Seventy-five to eighty percent of [Iraq’s Christian communities] were ethnically cleansed while George Bush was president, while he was commander-in-chief, while he ruled that country as absolutely as Kim Jong-un rules North Korea. He didn’t care,” Zmirak stated
Some call Trump’s Iran protest tweets striking turnabout from Obama era
Those protesters are being buoyed by messages from the Trump administration, says the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a coalition of democratic Iranian groups and personalities.
In two tweets earlier Saturday, President Donald Trump offered up a message of hope to the protesters: “The entire world understands that the good people of Iran want change, and, other than the vast military power of the United States, that Iran’s people are what their leaders fear the most…”
Trump added: “Oppressive regimes cannot endure forever, and the day will come when the Iranian people will face a choice. The World is watching!”
US ‘strongly condemns the arrest of peaceful protesters’ in Iran
Iran’s leaders have turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos,” the department said in a statement. “As President Trump has said, the longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are Iran’s own people.”
“We urge all nations to publicly support the Iranian people and their demands for basic rights and an end to corruption,” the statement added.
CNN Caught Sharing Iranian Regime Propaganda
The Iranian regime also decided to hold their own rallies in support of the corrupt ruling class. Protesters were bused in for the rallies.
The pro-regime protesters were carrying ‘down with Israel’ signs. This photo was taken from Tasnim News Agency in Iran from their protest shots today.
Later today CNN reported on the rallies. CNN took their photos from the Tasnim News Agency. They are literally spewing the pro-regime propaganda in their news reports
Supreme Leader Tweets About Jesus, But Iran is One of World’s Worst Persecutors of Christians
Iran is also one of 10 countries currently designed “countries of particular concern” under U.S. law for egregious violations of religious freedom. Iran carries out more executions each year than any country apart from China, applying the death penalty for offenses including apostasy, insulting Mohammed and other “grand prophets,” moharebeh (enmity against Allah) and “corruption on earth.”
Just two weeks before Christmas, however, the independent Iranian Christian news agency Mohabat News reported that security forces raided six houses in Karaj, Iran’s fourth-largest city, where Christians hold house church services.
It said four converts to Christianity were arrested and that shops owned by two of the men were also raided. Four of the Christians received ten year prison sentences, after being convicted of engaging in missionary activities and “conducting activities against national security,” Christian Solidarity Worldwide reported at the time.
“The charges and sentences against these four men are unwarranted and unjustifiable, given the paucity of the evidence against them,” said CSW chief executive Mervyn Thomas.https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/patrick-goodenough/supreme-leader-tweets-about-jesus-iran-one-worlds-worst-persecutors
Iran Starts Killing Protesters, ABC Ignores While CBS and NBC Downplay
IF THIS SURPRISES YOU, YOU’RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.
Disgustingly, the deaths didn’t trigger much air on the three major American networks. ABC’s Good Morning America had a blackout of the deaths and protests all together while NBC only found 24 seconds for them. CBS finally discovered the protests, as they continued into their fourth day, dedicating a meager 16 seconds.
Instead of allowing serious time for the brutal murders of Iranian civilians and the protests, whose marchers have been chanting “Death to Rouhani” and “We don’t want an Islamic republic,” NBC’s Sunday Today ran a four minute and 37 seconds long highlight reel of the media slamming and smearing President Trump from this past year.
