Iran Freedom Protests: Trump vs. Obama. Read the whole thing here.
GELLER: On Iran, Obama Abetted Tyranny. Trump Wants Freedom
Freedom protests have broken out all over Iran, lasting several days now.
Iranian troops have in at least one instance opened fire on the protesters and killed five, and the crackdown is not just on heads but in the information battlespace as well: the government is prevailing upon Internet providers to shut down service to several Iranian cities, so that the mullahs will have total control over what information the Iranians get. But the Iranians have shown amazing courage. The demonstrations have continued, even after the killings.
The protesters want no more of the bloody Islamic regime that has tyrannized them since 1979: they have been chanting “we don’t want an Islamic Republic,” “death to Rouhani,” and “long live Reza Shah.” Iranian dissident Potkin Azarmehr explained: “Protesters in Iran chant ‘Reza Shah, bless your soul’ – referring to Reza Shah the Great, the founder of the Pahlavi dynasty, the nemesis of the clerics, the modernizer of Iran.”
This is a historic moment. Thank heaven that to meet it, we have a president in the White House who stands for freedom and individual rights. Thanks to Barack Obama, the Iranian people who marched for freedom back in 2009 were routed, raped, and defeated en masse. The contrast couldn’t be more vivid between Trump’s immediate declaration of support for people yearning to be free versus Obama’s shrug, then silence, and ultimately support for the murdering mullahs.
The brutality of the 2009 crackdown on the Iranian people marching for freedom, for one man one vote, was impossible for those of us in the West to fathom. We heard the horror stories. We saw unarmed people meeting bullets with sheer will. But you cannot win this way.
