Remembering the Iran Election Protests Two Years Ago


Back in 2009 in Barcelona the Irish rock group U2 dedicated their epic hit “Sunday Bloody Sunday” to Iranian freedom protesters.

While U2 was singing and speaking out in support of the democracy activists in Iran — The Basiji guards were shooting protesters dead in the streets.


The killer Iranian regime quashed the protests, murdered activists and imprisoned the protest leaders.

Two years later President Obama told the Iranian regime to allow protests.

Most people have moved on since the 2009 protests. But not U2.
Tonight in St. Louis they again dedicated “Bloody Sunday” to the Iranian democracy protesters.
They lit up the stage with the colors of the Iranian flag.


Not everyone has forgotten about the Iranian people.

One of the things that marked the Iranian protests was the use of Twitter.
From what I have learned after the gov’t strengthened its hand after the protests, almost every one of those Twitterers was either arrested and executed or arrested and tortured into a recantation of their former beliefs (for democracy).
As happy as I was to see and hear about a pro-democracy push inside Iran, it was basically Muslims out of power fighting the Muslims in power.
Sharia would be a foregone conclusion no matter which side won.

Sharia is on the march across the globe.
The Valley Park Middle School in Toronto had a story in the July 2011 Toronto Star.
The ”Lord’s Prayer” cannot be said in any Toronto public schools, but this is an average Friday.
Muslim prayers headed by an imam take place on campus, in the cafeteria.
Note the sexism.
Boys (males) are in the front, bowing.
Girls (females) are behind them, also bowing (sexism).
Then behind them (and NOT bowing) are the girls who are on their periods.
Now, as bad as that is, all of these children are taught that they are superior to ANY non-Muslims whether they are boys, girls, adults, children whatever.

Um, please explain to me again why I should give a rat’s ass about [any] Iranians?
Different untrustworthy factions there have been giving us snowjobs for 36 years.

For 150 years prior to 1975, they were a pain in the ass to the Brits, also.

For 200 years, usually covertly, they have been pawns and allies of the Russians, who are [not] our friends …, or haven’t you noticed?
