Liberals Cheerleading for Iran
By Todd Strandberg
The Democrats are so fixated on getting Trump, they will now ally with anyone, even if it means siding with the terrorist state of Iran. Their motto is “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” After Trump ordered the drone strike on General Qasem Soleimani, the left was suddenly having friendly thoughts about a man who had helped kill 100s of American soldiers.
CNN had quoted Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as saying the United States committed a “grave mistake” in killing Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani; and US President Donald Trump responded on Twitter, writing that if Tehran attacks American assets, the US will strike “very hard and very fast.”
Some news sources spoke of the man as being quiet and loving poetry. His face gently frosted with a close-cropped white beard, his dreamy eyes seeming to shine with the recollection of a fond memory, he bears more than a passing resemblance to a mid-career Sean Connery, circa Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. He was described as a unifying leader for the Iranian people. Soleimani was the architect of Iran’s sphere of influence across the Middle East, and was considered to be the country’s second most powerful man.
New York Times journalist Farnaz Fassihi has been parroting Iranian propaganda into the Western media following Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani’s death. Retired army intelligence officer Tony Shaffer and former CIA chief of station, Daniel Hoffman said some of her tweets were directly cited from anonymous Iranian sources. Shaffer said he believes Fassihi could be getting information fed to her directly from the Iranian government.
A stampede broke out at the funeral for Soleimani; at least 56 people were killed and more than 200 were injured as thousands thronged the procession, Iranian news reports said. The stampede took place in Kerman, the hometown of Soleimani.
A clearly leftist professor is no longer on staff at Babson College in Massachusetts after what he described as a “bad attempt at humor” in a Facebook post, in which he said Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei “should tweet a list of 52 sites of beloved American cultural heritage that he would bomb.” The professor suggested those targets might include Minnesota’s Mall of America and a home of the Kardashian family, among other locations.
There was an article on the Babylon Bee that got much attention. It mocked the Democrat’s weak tone on the killing of Qasem Soleimani. It was meant to be a work of fiction, but it could be seen as predictive of how insane the Democrats may become someday:
At a press conference held on Capitol Hill Friday, mourning Democratic leaders called for flags to be flown half-mast to honor the death of Qasem Soleimani.
Flags were spotted flying at half-mast around the country, notably at The Washington Post, The New York Times, and in front of several celebrities’ homes. The celebrities went out and bought an American flag for the first time just to fly it at half-mast for this important time of grief.
“The grieving process is painful but necessary,” said Rep. Ilhan Omar. “As a nation, we need to stop and grieve this great, austere, revered religious scholar. He was one of the good ones.”
In a rare moment of unity with The Squad, Pelosi gave each of the girls a hug, telling them to just “let it all out” in their time of sadness.
Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem to know what was happening but adjusted her glasses to look smart.
A teary-eyed Barack Obama was also seen solemnly lowering the flag in front of his seaside mansion. “To think, this all could have been prevented with a few pallets of cash.” He sighed and stared off into the distance, a look of pain and regret on his face. “If only Trump had targeted a U.S. citizen with a drone strike instead.”
Later, Democrats clarified they meant we should fly the Iranian flag at half-mast, not the “offensive and problematic” American flag.
Democrats and the media are now blaming the US and Trump for the fact that Iran shot down a passenger jet. It should be clear to all that Iran’s lack of respect for human life is the main reason why those 176 passengers are now dead. If an Iranian soldier shot himself in the foot, the left would blame Trump.
We would not have this insane behavior on the part of the liberal media if people showed their outrage. Giving aid & comfort to the enemy is treason. CNN, ABC, CBS, and PBS might as well relocate to Tehran or Moscow.
I don’t expect any type of improvement on the part of the press. I think we are too close to the tribulation hour to allow for reform. When you have the liberal media willing to become chummy with one of America’s worst enemies, the end must be very near.
