Make no mistake, Barack Obama did everything possible as President to further strengthen Iran’s Muslim dictatorship. He gave them billions of dollars, refused to call out decades of human rights violations, including those against women, minorities, and homosexuals, allowed U.S. citizens to be put to death, allowed U.S. soldiers to be humiliated by Iranian military, the sad list of pro-Iranian posturing by Mr. Obama is shocking when one looks at it in its entirety.
America has a new President, though. A far different one. Donald Trump openly shares his disdain for the militant Iranian regime that would see women put to death for speaking their mind. (And knowing that, how in the name of God can any American liberal support Iran? It truly boggles the mind. And yet, many are doing just that apparently out of spite against Donald Trump. That is akin to someone supporting Adolph Hitler in the 1930’s because they didn’t like FDR.)
Trump has rightfully taken eight very weird years of Obama support for Iran and thrown it into the trash. As Iranian youth rise up to protest their oppressive government, Donald Trump is doing what Obama never did – he’s openly supporting their cause:
Now consider this – President Trump is voicing his support for those trying to overthrow a brutal dictatorship in Iran where woman are second-class citizens and minorities and homosexuals live in constant fear of death – and for that some among the Establishment Media are criticizing him.
And yet, when then-President Obama repeatedly encouraged those who rioted across this country calling for an end to America as we know it, this same media applauded. Even when police officers were being slaughtered by some of these anti-American “activists” Mr. Obama and the media continued to claim these “brave” rioters were doing “good work.”
The same president and media supported a brutal Muslim dictatorship (that also armed terrorists who killed thousands of U.S. soldiers) while supporting those who want to destroy America. That bizarre contradiction pretty much sums up the eight years of the Obama presidency.
Let’s hope the people of Iran finally get a chance to know freedom. All human beings deserve such opportunity. How refreshing to now have a U.S. president who feels the same way.
