Iranian Protests Continue; Bambi Kinda Sorta Finds His Cajones

The most recent video of the protests in Tehran; 6/20/09:

For the most recent Fox News information, go here.

For a good twitter feed, PersianKiwi.

Yesterday, Senator John McCain advised the president to issue a strongly worded statement condemning any violent action against the protestors and finally today Bambi issued this statement:

The Iranian government must understand that the world is watching. We mourn each and every innocent life that is lost. We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people. The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights.

As I said in Cairo, suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away. The Iranian people will ultimately judge the actions of their own government. If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion.

Martin Luther King once said – “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” I believe that. The international community believes that. And right now, we are bearing witness to the Iranian peoples’ belief in that truth, and we will continue to bear witness.

The Mullahs are cowards to be dropping boiling water and chemicals from helicopters on their own citizens.

Are the Oathkeepers paying attention?

I keep hearing that Americans are being put to shame by these Iranian students who are now fighting in earnest for their freedom, while we sit back and let this administration and government crap all over our Constitution and us.

Do you think that the campaign to disarm America is going to be ratcheted up after these protests in Iran?

********

I believe that we are going to be seeing a completely different Iran in a week or so.  These Iranians have the spirit of our Founding Fathers flowing through them.  They understand what Jefferson, Adams, Franklin and the rest knew – that once a person crosses this bridge defying a tyrant for one’s freedom, there is no coming back.  There is no return until the fight is over.

For all of those Americans out there that are wondering why Americans have not marched on Washington DC yet; we are not close enough to the bridge yet, but it is coming if this government continues to ignore our wishes…

  1. Personally I cannot bear to watch the footage of young men and women being beaten to death. Ahmadinejad and the rest to these mickey mouse dictators around the world are very lucky I’m not the President. Because I would have stopped watching and talking and would have run out of missles already. Bombs and missles would break their bones but Obama’s hollow words will never hurt them.

  2. TPTB want nothing more than a war in Iran. If we did bomb there, only the innocent will be hurt. We get too involved in the world’s problems now as it is (and we create more than our fair share too), and we have more than enough of our own at home. We must take the beam from our own eyes before we try to remove the splinter from our neighbor’s. This is their battle and we have our own. We should be ashamed at the courage these people are showing compared to the cowardice we are displaying. We are nearing that bridge, and more are awakening every day, so this display of fearlessness from these proud people may show us our own short comings and send on on the road towards that bridge. The only thing it takes for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing. Evil abounds in this country and Iran is holding up a mirror for us to see ourselves.

  3. Well said, Practical Madman.
    If our Country continues on the road it is on the
    youth of America will be fighting the same battle for freedom with rocks and sticks. Not a pretty picture.

  4. From the words of Obama:
    “The Iranian government must understand… blah blah blah.”
    Well, that said, I wonder how he will be willing to back them up. He’s already told the freakin’ world what he thinks of America…and now this.
    And I wonder…methinks these strong words, will they stick in his throat when they consider things like martial law in this country? He’s already published his words…and it would so uncool of the cool One if he then showed the world he’s lied again. But then the narcissist reacts in desparation when the situation becomes a threat to his rep/pop/authority.

  5. Tingly,

    Obama could care less if he’s caught in a lie. It’s happened repeatedly, yet the Emperor continues to declare that his suit is the finest i the world (not made in America, of course). It’s a classic characteristic of NPD.

    Robin,

    The youth in this country would only be able to fight tyranny if we put it in a video game. This time it is the grown ups who will fight.

  6. GG- unfortunately you are right. I don’t think most students today could define tyranny, or even know what the constitution is. This is all according to plan, though. TPTB dumbed down the schools over the last couple of generations because a dumb populous doesn’t know when it is being screwed. Those kids in Iran probably are more in tune with reality than our kids, sorry to say. I am 54 and I am embarrassed by the ignorance of my own generation regarding a lot of issues.

  7. you would be amazed at how many students are in love with Obama…I teach seminary in the mornings and I have a couple of students who were willing to get in a knock out drag out over Obama and their loyalty to him. It was actually pretty sad, needless to say we don’t bring up politics anymore or discuss Obama at all when these 2 students are around(the father is a teacher so that says a lot, nothing like sleeping with the enemy! of coarse you dangle a carrot(money and education) in front of a teacher and they’ll go for it every time). On the other hand my children grasp and understand exactly what’s going on because we talk freely and openly about it in our home and we don’t have the biasness of wanting money to influence what we think! No wonder more and more people choose to home school their kids!

  8. Dragon,

    I soooooo support home schooling! I cannot imaging sending a child into the mess that our public schools are right now. My former job was in field service, and I always loved going to homes where the children were home schooled. They always seemed so happy and well adjusted. Not a lot of pent up anger, and no discipline issues either.

    Our educators had better realize soon that they are being played, or their jobs will literally be nothing more than trying to control angry urban youth. Those in the suburbs are opting out more and more, and speaking from a state that has unbelievable property-based school taxes I can tell you that the model cannot be sustained much longer. NY is going to go under very soon.

  9. The youth of Iran have realized how precious freedom really is to people. Unfortunately, here in America our children have been fed lies and propaganda in our schools and colleges for the last 40 years. Most American students could care less about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or freedom and liberty. In numerous interviews I have heard them express their views, and it always sounds like a commercial for Marxism. Obama is destroying America by running up a crushing federal debt at levels never seen in the history of the world. Trillions and trillions of dollars to fund Americore, ACORN, Hamas, and all of the other radical groups that supported and funded his election. He is creating a majority group of
    non- working voters who are more then willing to accept cradle to grave welfare in exchange for their votes. This uncontrolled radicalization of America is to insure that Obama stays in power and will bring ruinous taxes, runaway inflation and the eventual financial collapse of America. The state is now the parent and we the parents are the extremist. Take a good look at Iran it may be our future. “We the people own America and its institutions and when we become disatisfied with our current government we have the constitutional right to amend it, or the revolutionary right to overthrow it”.(Abe Lincoln) Gird your loins America the bridge to Communism, Islam, and dictatorship looms ahead.

  10. In the months leading up to Israel’s declaring independence from the British, no country stood up to aid the Jews in arming themselves from the Arab onslaught that they knew was coming. Private citizens took it upon themselves to pay for and deliver arms to them.

    No nation is going to stand for these kids with anything other than words, except for perhaps Israel, and even then it’s a tricky game. If the protesters, and the Iranians in diaspora want to overthrow the mullahs they will find a way. Though the nations of the world will not invade, they can look the other way.

    As far as not being close enough to the bridge goes; if you can see it, it’s far too late.
