Iran Protests – “Be Quiet” or Speak Up?

 In Foreign, Politics

While the leadership of Iran tries to blames the US for its recent troubles, the Iran Protests enter their 7th day. More than 20 people have been killed, and 450 detained so far, although unofficial totals are much higher in both categories. Both men and especially women are literally risking everything as they defy the regime’s rules.  In spite of the liberal Trump bashing, there is bipartisan support for the protests.

Former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice told President Trump to “Be quiet” regarding the Iran protests.

Her remark garnered a plethora of responses, 99% negative towards her. She, like other liberals recently, fell into the foot-in-mouth disease common among their “kind.”

Be quiet? About what is happening in Iran? No.

It is unclear what the President means when he says “at the appropriate time,” but it’s a refreshing departure from the response of Obama during the 2009 protests.

And the Prime Minister of Israel also remarked:

“Brave Iranians are pouring into the streets. They seek freedom. They seek justice. They seek the basic liberties that have been denied to them for decades. Iran’s cruel regime wastes tens of billions of dollars spreading hate.” Benjamin Netanyahu via Reuters

Brave is an understatement. Standing against tyranny is never a clean, “quiet” process. Maj Gen Mohammad Ali Jafari in charge of the IRGC “Revolutionary Guard” told people that “Sedition has been defeated” as  staged pro-government rallies tried to counter the anti-government protests. Whether that’s true or not is hard to discern, since the Iranian government locked off Telegram and Instagram.

What is abundantly clear is that women are oppressed under radical Islam, and some of them don’t even see it. Liberal women in the US appear to be oblivious to their plight, as there hasn’t been a peep out of them since the protests began. They’re too busy bashing Trump to care about women in Iran.

There have been a plethora of left-wingers dumping on the iconic photos coming out of the Iran Protests- saying they are fake, or that the women weren’t really there. Does it matter? The protests are real, regardless of any pictures that might have been used. The deaths of ordinary people are real, in spite of the liberal viewpoint.
