Iranian protester Neda Agha-Soltan’s death by gunfire
The nation of Iran is presently balanced on the precipice of civil war over the recent stolen elections returning Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a second term as president. And what do we hear from the leader of the free world, President Obama? Nothing but weak, tepid words amounting to acquiescence to mass slaughter by the autocratic mullahs who acutely feel their power slipping by the day.
As millions of Iranians march in the streets of Tehran and throughout other cities, I am struck by the dichotomies between their righteous indignation over the sham elections versus America’s indifference and apathy concerning our own stolen elections six months ago by Obama (who’s most likely not even a natural born citizen), the Democrat Party and the government-controlled media. Other than hundreds of “tea parties” that broke out in cities and towns across America to memorialize the Boston Tea Party of Dec. 16, 1773, there have been no mass demonstrations in Washington, D.C., in front of the White House expressing outrage that 62.7 million voters, 54 percent of the voting population willfully elected a neo-Marxist with fascist tendencies as president of the United States.
Iran has come to America. In my home state of Michigan, a federal judge has recently upheld a decision by festival organizers in Dearborn, which is about 30 percent Muslim, to ban a Christian ministry from handing out religious tracts on public sidewalks. If America wasn’t already a benign dictatorship, Congress would have immediately drawn up articles of impeachment against this renegade judge for so blatantly abridging freedom of religion and freedom of association protected by the First Amendment.
If Christians, which 83 percent of Americans consider themselves, cannot worship and proselytize freely in America, then are we any better than China, Russia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Cuba or any other autocratic regime? At least in Iran the people are finally fed up with 30 years of Muslim fanaticism and have taken their revolution to the streets. When will Christians and conservatives wake up and take the revolution to the streets here in America?
“He’s got a very delicate path to walk here,” said Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn. “You don’t want to take ownership of this,” defending Obama’s effeminate stance against Iran’s brutal political repression. That’s not Reagan’s “Peace through strength”; that’s not inspired leadership; that’s licking your finger, holding it up in the air and seeing which way the wind blows. Leaders lead! It’s time for Obama to stop being a man-child in the Promised Land and be a Man. But he can’t – why?
Obama is enslaved by his neo-Marxist, socialist ideology, which hates American exceptionalism, or the idea that America, by her unique history, religious traditions and Constitution is better than other countries possessing inferior historical and political traditions.
Even if Iran cuts off the world to their rich oil fields, Obama is in the midst of a Hobson’s choice. He must appease one of his major special interest groups – the radical environmentalists, who detest nuclear, coal, gas and oil energy. Therefore, he won’t exploit America’s huge oil reserves we have in Alaska, Utah, Colorado and reserves off the coast of Florida, Louisiana and California. Obama’s green energy bill currently before Congress is merely a Machiavellian tax increase.
Iranian dichotomies and American ironies – what’s the difference between Iran and America? Both are ruled by narcissistic, fascist dictators, a de facto one-party system dominated by cronyism, corruption, political commissars and a state-run press that justifies perverting the Constitution to “help the poor” and crush all political dissent. Remember that Ahmadinejad’s biggest demographic are the lower classes from the southern regions of Iran.
Now it has come out the Obama used backchannel communications with Iran’s supreme leader, the Ayatollah Khamenei. The letter was sent between May 4 and May 10 and laid out the prospect of “cooperation in regional and bilateral relations” and a resolution of the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program. A Mideastwire.com article broke the story:
“The American president was quoted as saying that he expected the people of Iran to take to the streets,” Ayatollah Khamenei misquoted Mr. Obama as saying, according to a translation.
“On the one hand, they [the Obama administration] write a letter to us to express their respect for the Islamic Republic and for re-establishment of ties, and on the other hand they make these remarks. Which one of these remarks are we supposed to believe? Inside the country, their agents were activated. … The violators are not the public or the supporters of the candidates. They are the ill-wishers, mercenaries and agents of the Western intelligence services and the Zionists.”
These Iranian/American dichotomies are incredible. They show the utterly duplicitous, craven nature of Obama and how comfortable he is with coddling fascist Muslim dictators while bringing the iron fist to Israel and Bibi Netanyahu, demanding that they trade “land for peace” with the Palestinians despite the fact that Israel is a very tiny nation possessing only one-sixth of 1 percent of the total land mass of the Middle East.
After this letter Obama sent to the ayatollah is fully vetted, I’m sure it will become clear that much in the same way as the 1938 Munich Treaty between Neville Chamberlain and Hitler lit the fuse for World War II and the Nazi genocide of 6 million Jews in the Holocaust, so we will soon learn that Obama’s appeasement letter to the ayatollah gave Iran the green light to steal the presidential election, brutally crush all political dissent and develop nuclear weapons with impunity to “wipe Israel off the map.”
Obama has disappointed no one but the tens of millions of besieged Iranians who honestly believed in representative democracy and the billions of people throughout the world oppressed under totalitarian regimes whose one light for freedom and liberty, America, was extinguished by the words and letters of appeasement by president Obama.
