Iranian Protestors Rally for Regime Change And Freedom, Trump Calls For Support [VIDEO]

Iran will be ringing in the New Year soon, but it won’t be a party with fireworks and confetti. Instead many will be on the streets protesting the brutality of the Iranian regime.

The anti-government protests, as noted here while discussing the new U.S./Israel agreement, broke out on Thursday in Iran’s second largest city, Mashhad.

Initially the protests were slated to be demonstrations in support of the Iranian government. However, what the world is seeing is something entirely different, and it mirrors the Green Revolution in 2009 when protestors were brutally mowed down and killed because they dared to call for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s ouster after a blatantly rigged election. In spite of brutal crackdowns, those protests went on for nearly three more years.

Folks on Twitter and other social media platforms picked up on the escalating anti-government protests and sent out news, information, and support. The Iranian government’s response is as expected:

First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri has suggested that government opponents are behind the protests, according to comments reported by state broadcaster IRIB.

He said: “Some incidents in the country these days are on the pretext of economic problems, but it seems there is something else behind them. They think by doing this they harm the government, but it will be others who ride the wave.”

The governor-general of Tehran said that any such gatherings would be firmly dealt with by the police, who are out in force on the main roads.

Meanwhile, the U.S. government has responded.

What’s interesting about President Trump’s tweet is that it mirrors WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweet. Which tells me that the U.S. government is on the same page. Peaceful protests should not be met with government force. But does that matter to many in the media? NOPE.

Oh give it a rest. Who cares if the tweets are similar or were posted three hours apart. The much BIGGER story is that Iranians are protesting a regime that is one of the largest terror sponsors in the world.

What many don’t want to admit is that these new protests have been brewing for quite some time. Why? Several reasons, including inaction by President Obama in 2009. Instead of admitting the election was rigged, he provided this weak sauce quote.

“The world is watching and inspired by their participation, regardless of what the ultimate outcome of the election was.”

In other words, Iranians were on their own with zero support from the U.S. in fact, as WSJ’s Jay Solomon found out, Obama ordered everyone to stand down including the CIA, yet another move to try and turn the Iranian mullahs from foes to friends. In 2012, we found out why he let Iranians seeking freedom wither on the vine.

President Obama’s Nuclear Deal allowed Iran access to assets frozen in the US to the tune of $100 billion. The Obama administration even shipped $1.7 billion in cash to the regime, described as ‘settlement of old legal claim.’

As many have attempted to argue, all that cash was Iran’s to begin with . Yeah, no. To heck with that. As we now know, Iran took that windfall and used it to ramp up their military, build more missiles, ramp up their production of nuke plants, and fund terror in Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Hamas, and likely Hezbollah. Helping Iranian citizens, not on the government’s radar whatsoever.

Instead the Iranian government would rather make the U.S. the bad guy (as usual) and call President Trump’s support ‘deceitful.’ Yet it’s not just the economic situation many are protesting. They are also protesting the regime’s brutality against women.

President Trump has been vocal from the beginning of his campaign to now regarding how bad the Iran Deal was for the U.S. and the world.

The recently unveiled National Security Strategy goes even further. Given the timing of the Iranian protests just 10 days after the NSS report was unveiled, I have to wonder if some of the leaders of the protest read it and realized that once again the United States will be a genuine champion for freedom instead of being pro-mullah/pro-oppression/pro-terror.

    Carefully split into 390 million chunks, because any payment of more than 400 million must, by law, be given its’ own separate line item in the money appropriated by Congress. When peons like us set up payments to avoid legal reporting requirements, it’s a crime, called “structuring”, and we get prosecuted, put in jail, and the cash is seized.
