This is an update to todays “Of Groundhogs and Sexual Identity Confusion” post (below this one).
As usual, a cleric from the religion of peace decreed that not only was killing completely justified he urged more.
Was it family killers? (oops, no, look all through the middle east on that one)
Child molesters? (oops, no, see article below)
Indiscriminate bombings? (oops, no, see Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.. and Yemen, and Saudi Arabia…)
No, it was for speaking out.
A powerful hard-line Iranian cleric on Friday called for the execution of more opposition activists to silence anti-government protests, praising the hanging a day earlier of two men caught up in the leadership’s postelection crackdown.
“Whatever we suffered was because of our weakness. How many did the judiciary execute on July 9?” [Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati] said, referring to one of the particularly large protest days.
“We showed weakness, so then we had Ashoura,” he said, referring to a major protest on Dec. 27. “If you show weakness now, the future will be worse … There is no room for Islamic mercy.”
What has the Iranian establishment suffered, exactly? Just the results of being a corrupt bunch of vermin. Not too bad, all things considered.
Iran and so many cockroach tinpot dictator countries (lets lump China in there) just can’t seem to understand that if you want to be taken seriously and with respect as an equal, you gotta stop stomping on people for speaking their minds.
