Cry Freedom: Iranian Protests Grow in Day #2 – Regime Forces Crack Down…

It looks like the Iranian Green Revolution is back on the streets as waves of protests are happening.  In 2009 the Mullah’s brutally cracked down on the reformers and President Obama stood by.  In 2017 the reformers have an ally in the oval office as President Trump and his entire administration (specifically Rex Tillerson and Nikki Haley) openly show their support for the movement.  Stunning developments.

The U.S. Media are attempting to spin the protests as “pro-regime” and claiming the supporters are pro-Khameni and pro government.  That narrative is 100% false, yet it highlights the severity of the entire left-wing media apparatus as they attempt to prop-up the failed policies of the Obama administration.

Tens-of-thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets to express their anger, and unfortunately for the preferred media script that anger is not directed at President Trump or Saudi Arabia; but rather at the mullahs and their oppressive security forces.

The protests may have begun over economic grievances in the northeastern city of Mashhad.  However, the uprising has grown to at least 18 cities nationwide.  The slogals are no longer about corruption and economics, they are directly confronting the Islamic Republic:

Death to [Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei!”

Death to Hezbollah!”

Not Gaza, Not Lebanon, Our Life Only for Iran!”

We Will Die to Get Our Iran Back!”

Clerics Out of Our Country!”

President Trump Tweeted his prior statements from the U.N. General Assembly about Iran and the hopes for the people of Iran.  U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, also is transmitting support for the reformers along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The reformers and protesters face a brutal Iranian regime that spends most of its time trying to retain itself and will not hesitate to crack down, just as it did in 1999 and 2009.

Perhaps the difference now is they have the support of U.S. President Donald Trump, and it is likely our western propaganda media will not be able to hide the truth much longer.

    Some one is manipulating this…the Saudis, the US, someone. I’d like to know who before I get too excited.
    Culturally, persians are different than Americans. We lead, they follow and join. Ask any military trainer that spent time there – they are eager to please. Plus crowds can materialize almost instantaneously when something is going on. So I am skeptical as to the final outcome.

    I pray for the people I still know there, and hope this leads to a better government for them.

      Fall to your knees clasp your hands and look up. Someone is manipulating this.

      Never been particularly religious but stuff like this? There is a different hand at play.

      Be it Yaweh, or Allah or Buddha or heck even Krishna. Be it cosmic karma. Something is afoot.

      I am pleased to see that Trump is working with Israel to stop Iran from using nukes. Bibi wanted to help and was just waiting to be asked. I am surprised that Israel was never asked by any other President to aid this country with Iran. I guess it was easier to complain about money we gave them than to use their knowledge of the Middle East to help us. Another brilliant thing Trump has done.

    I am Iranian born, I lived in Iran until I was 18 and moved here to attend university. Then Shah was removed and I decided to become a US citizen and never went back. Still have many close family there. I voted for Obama in 2008 but absolutely hated him when he joined the Mullah’s and suppressed the first Green Party protests. Many Iranians died as a result.

    Many of you know me on this site. I have been here supporting our beloved President since day one. I am so thankful he is President during this second uprising and not that Mullah loving idiot.

    Iranian people hate the Mullahs. Most are NOT fanatic religious Muslims. They love the western culture and lifestyle. This time with the help of CIA (hopefully) and President Trump they can really overthrow that regime. And once they do, expect all of Obama/Clinton’s dirt to surface in a big way.

    “The Crushing of Light”

    The crushing of light
    is really an impossible thing
    Light travels too quickly for lies to catch it
    It emerges in places unexpected
    It fills hearts without notice
    It sets free the minds of captors and captives

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    This is what courage looks like. We see an oppressed people who have suffered long enough rise up with righteous indignation in an attempt to secure a better life,.liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. God bless ’em.

    I’m going to try and explain some things to you blood thirsty boomers who forget about America First and non-intervention as soon as your precious Israel enters the picture.

    1. The Iranian Revolution was led by a spiritual Shia vanguard, but it enjoyed broad support among the masses. Thousands of Iranian soldiers charged Iraqi lines WWI style during the Iran-Iraq war at enormous costs. People who are not invested in their society as it is configured do not do this.
    2. The Shia Republic enjoys broad support among Iranian civil society. Already there are large counter-protests. Most Iranians support the government’s foreign policy. https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2017/07/iran-support-restart-nuclear-program-deal-syria-poll.html
    3. Some of the protests are organic, but the majority of the protests describe a conflict between two competing interpretations of the Islamic revolution that converge in principle – reformists and principalists, or they Iranian left and right respectively. The hardline faction tends to favour more Bernie Sanders style economic policy, while Rouhani’s administration is more neo-liberal. These neo-liberal policies have caused resentment among the poorer working class.
    4. The organic protests occurring within the parameters of normal Iranian politics are being seeded by fringe groups connected to the US state dept and CIA, including groups like MEK which used to be on the terrorist list. So the ‘mass protests against theocracy’ is a misperception arraigned by Western media and intelligence services.
    5. Successful ‘colour’ revolutions require a split in the elite, and the Iranian elite are unified at the level of the political – us vs them rather than day to day politics.
    6. Shia Islam is organized hierarchically, unlike the Sunni mosque based authority. That means its a lot harder to subvert or undermine so long as the ‘head’ of the body politic is functional and effective.
    7. Most of the world, including the real right in Western countries, don’t want American ‘freedom.’ Individual social and economic autonomy are not the highest goal of political life; in fact it is a recipe for cultural, racial, ethnic, and religious dissolution. After years of failed nation building, Americans still want to re-enact a highly edited conception of their revolution around the world. You’re not the last best hope for mankind. Your assumption – summed up in Full Metal Jacket – that there is ‘an American side of everyone waiting to get out’ is false. The Iranian revolution in part was a response to the projects of the US backed despotic Shah, who want intent on remaking his country in the post-WWII Western image while BP and other oil companies stole national resources.

      Tell me, oh wise one, does the current regime in Iran export terrorism around the region and around the world? Would you prefer to see them continue until they can possess and distribute nuclear weapons to terrorists as well, or would you prefer to see them stopped so the prospects for peace would be better?

    * And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil.

    For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed.
    21
    But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.
