Trump Says Iran Is Killing Thousands for Protesting

Erin Scott/Reuters

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Iran was killing thousands of people for protesting and urged the world to take more notice.

Disturbances in Iran began in mid-November over gasoline price hikes but quickly turned political, with demonstrators demanding the removal of the top leaders of the country in the bloodiest anti-government protests since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

“Iran is killing perhaps thousands and thousands of people right now as we speak, that it why they cut off the internet so people can’t see what is going on,” Trump said during a visit to London for a NATO Summit.

“Not just small numbers which are bad, big numbers which are really bad, and really big numbers … It is a terrible thing and the world has to be watching.”

This is just another episode in the 1300 year old internecine war in Islam. Repression and violence are inherent in the religion as is sectarian violence. In the entire history of Persia, when have the people ever been free?

While this is atrocious it’s literally business as usual for Muslims. They cut off children’s heads in front of their mothers for being slightly different types of Muslims. If we stepped in and liberated them I feel like history would just repeat itself. It’s a never ending cycle with Muslims killing each other using their backwards ass religion to herd the population, and all the while treating women like second class citizens at best property is the typical mindset towards women.


A very bitter part of me thinks “Who gives a rat’s ass, let the sand jockey’s kill each other off.
