Dueling rallies in Iran turn violent

TEHRAN, Iran - Hard-liners attacked senior pro-reform leaders in the streets as tens of thousands marched in competing mass demonstrations by the opposition and government supporters. Opposition protesters, chanting “death to the dictator,” hurled stones and bricks in clashes with security forces.

The opposition held its first major street protests since mid-July, bringing out thousands in demonstrations in several parts of the capital. In some cases only several blocks away, tens of thousands marched in government-sponsored rallies marking an annual anti-Israel commemoration.

The commemoration, known as Quds Day, is a major political occasion for the government — a day for it to show its anti-Israeli credentials and its support for the Palestinians. During a speech for the rallies, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad railed against Israel and the West, questioning whether the Holocaust occurred and calling it a pretext for occupying Arab land. Quds is the Arabic word for Jerusalem.

But the opposition was determined to turn the day into a show of its survival and continued strength despite a fierce three-month-old crackdown against it since the disputed June 12 presidential election.

I have been at odds with quite a few really good bloggers lately, great Conservative bloggers, Facebook friends and so forth. They change their screen names to green colored fonts, they place a green tint on their profile pictures. They fly Iranian flags. They implore everyone to support Freedom in Iran.

They are very confused I am afraid.

Freedom in Iran is NOT in our hands. We’ve got all we can do to keep America afloat given the morons we have in the Obama administration. Czars, socialists, anti-American racists, crooks, uh, yeah, crooks, ACORN and their ilk.

How well do ANY of you remember the Carter administration? Do you remember what the most defining part OF the Carter administration was?

That would be the Iranian hostage crisis, and his lack of ANY success in dealing with it.

The Iranian hostage crisis was a diplomatic crisis between Iran and the United States where 53 Americans were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981, after a group of Islamist students and militants took over the American embassy in support of the Iranian Revolution. SOURCE

The people that gave us the hostage crisis in 1979 are the same people that are in power today, and some of those same people are also on the opposing side, referred to simply as, The Opposition.

The Opposition wants to take control of Iraq, and for many, that means, hey, we need to support these guys, it’s an attempted regime change. And they are right, it would be a regime change. A change from one extreme bunch of Islamic moonbats to another. It’s just that simple. A change of regime in Iran won’t bring about a democracy any more than taking Saddam out of the picture did for Iraq.

In both Iraq and Afghanistan, once the leader in place was deposed, he was merely replaced with a bit more acceptable War Lord. And that is exactly what Hamid Karzai and Nouri al-Maliki are, the smartest, most powerful and the most pro-U.S. War Lord that could be found. The minute we leave Afghanistan, Karzai will be a page in history. As soon as we exit Iraq, al-Malaki becomes the next Saddam.

Freedom in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan doesn’t mean the same thing that freedom in the USA stands for. That would be mostly because those nations will NEVER truly be free, no matter WHO the President or Prime Minister is. They will NEVER be FREE because they are, have been and always will be, dominated by Islam. Freedom doesn’t exist in a theocracy, it can’t.

theocracy — noun
1. a form of government in which God or a deity is recognized as the supreme civil ruler, the God’s or deity’s laws being interpreted by the ecclesiastical authorities.
2. a system of government by priests claiming a divine commission.
3. a commonwealth or state under such a form or system of government.
4. a government ruled by or subject to religious authority.

That is the definition of theocracy.

I am certain of this one thing, no matter who ends up running Iraq, Iran or Afghanistan, those nations will continue to be Islamic theocracies. Frankly, I don’t care if they do remain slaves to a religion like Islam, that’s their problem. My problem is this, they have sworn, even the so-called moderate Muslims, have SWORN to force their religion upon the rest of us. And they have sworn that we will submit or die. And it doesn’t matter who’s in charge in an Islamic nation, Islam WILL dominate and that nation will be run by a theocracy.

That IS the rule of the Taliban, al-Qaeda, no matter what the name used may be, that is the evil that is the Religion of Peace. And that is what will emerge from Iran, regardless of who comes out on top. As soon as they are done fighting amongst themselves, we go right back to the top of the list and we are, once again, The Great Satan.

One of the greatest principles of this nation is our Freedom OF Religion. I am happy that, at least for the time being, we still have Freedom FROM Religion as well.

God save us ALL from the American Taliban

    You are so right Fred!!! I can not believe we are letting Achmediajad set foot on our soil. At least the hotel that was supposed to entertain him as speaker canceled and said they do not want him in any of there places. I saw online this morning a web site saying there is going to be Islam on Capitol Hill, here is the link if anyone wants to ck it out http://islamoncapitolhill.com/Home_Page.html I don’t know if this is true, I hope not because this kind of thing in our Country makes me ill!! Our Country is a Christian Nation regardless of what Obama says. I think he will stop at nothing until he turns us into a place like Iran. I just want to say Thank You Fred for giving some of us a place to vent on the important issues!!! Your Great!!!

    The only reason I’ll be using green on anything is to celebrate me Irish heritage…

    I remember being torn over our involvement in Iraq during the election. The liberals only wanted to shill that “The Surge wasn’t working” and to get out now! I took a good deal of time thinking about it. My feeling was that it was probably wrong to go in there and go in half-baked, but… to go in, destroy the place fighting a war (Of course the insurgents had a lot to do with that!) and to cut and run without giving Iraq a chance seemed wrong. Especially with Iran chomping at the bit to move right in.
    But I have reached the conclusion that trying to get Islamists to embrace the idea of creating a free nation and living with Democratic rule is much like trying to get a hard core alcoholic to embrace sobriety… not likely given their love of Sharia law, which is the polar opposite of freedom! It is nuts to think anything will change in an Islamic nation.

    Fred you are correct, they are only in opposition over who should be running the show, not on how things should be done. They would only be a different face running Iran, not a freedom loving government. I don’t think Islam is conducive toward the things free societies need in order for people to be free. Like some measure of respect for women and equality under law. I’m with you Fred, a free Iran isn’t going to happen and we have our own problems to solve.

    Fred says

    ” after a group of Islamist students and militants took over the American embassy in support of the Iranian Revolution.”

    Did they, or didn’t they, say that amadirtbag was one of the militants in on that takeover?

    I am thinking that being they have no regard for life, arm the oppositions wih strap on nukes and let the wild eyed suicide monkeybombers clean house. Yeah. alah akbar MF. That I think is arabic for W…T……F!!! LOL

  5. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    Again, I say it’s not the “people” of Iran who are the problem; it’s those running the government at the behest of the ruling Muslim clerics. Until ALL the clerics are removed — and the likelihood of that is infinitesimal — not much will change and Iran will continue to be a threat. The “people” can revolt all they wish; sooner or later their blood will run, once again, in the gutters of their streets.


  6. TexasFred says:

    BZ? Do you NOT *get it*?

    The “people” that you speak of only revolt because THEIR moonbat cleric isn’t running the theocracy…

    Iran has NOTHING to do with freedom, it’s all about control. And sadly, the current administration is trying to bring that type of rule to THIS nation…

    Piss on Iran, Iraq, ALL of those Islamic asshats, we have our very own Muslim bastard to deal with right here and right now…

  7. BobF says:

    Freedom in Iran…what a joke. All it is, is one group of fanatics upset because their fanatic wasn’t chosen as president over the other fanatic. The fanatic ( Hossein Mousavi) who is supposedly behind he “freedom” movement is one of those behind the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut; 220 US Marines died in that attack.

    Don’t Forget Mousavi’s Bloody Past

  8. Silver Fox says:

    True, no matter which side wins in Iran little will change it will still be an Islamic state as far as western eyes are concerned. The man on the street will see some changes but the view from afar will remain the same. They probably look at our elections the same way. Just the way it is.

  9. TexasFred says:

    SF, that is exactly why I can’t get too worked up about their supposed Iranian Freedom BS, just one group of moonbats fighting another group of moonbats to see who’s moonbat runs their moonbat nation…

  10. Katie says:

    But the green banners etc… get under Obama’s skin. He is trying to appease Iran and we want nothing to do with it.

    Plus anything that angers the Monkeyman is good.

  11. TexasFred says:

    Yeah… That explains it…

    Support a bunch of Muslim moonbats that have sworn to kill us all and blow Israel off the map because it pisses off Obooboo…

    Makes perfect sense… 😐

  12. Katie says:

    Anything that destabilizes Iran is good. The more chaos there, the better.

  13. minuteman26 says:

    Iran will have a nuke within six months. Time for Israel to strike cause Obamalama Ding Dong will not. Muslims with a nuke is a can of worms we don’t even want to face. If a good number of these rag heads have to be eliminated to prevent that from happening; so be it.

  14. BobF says:

    I think it’s time to put these B-2’s to use and drop a few bunker buster’s on their underground nuclear complexes. Sure, the world will be pissed off openly but deep down they will be glad we did it. And the Russians? They’ll be pissed and rattling sabers in public but they’ll be happy too as they’ll be able to sell the Iranians new stuff as we would have set their program back years. And besides, who’s going to do anything about it?
