Iranian Supreme Leader lectures America on human rights
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei took to Twitter to blast the US for being the "biggest violator of #HumanRights,” in the world and for committing crimes against its ppl. #Ferguson."
Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei used the chaos in Ferguson, Missouri, to launch into a Twitter rant against the United States for being a so-called enemy of human rights.
“Based on global statistics, US govt is the biggest violator of #HumanRights,” the Ayatollah’s official account tweeted to its 70,000 followers on Sunday. “Besides int’l crimes, it commits crimes against its ppl. #Ferguson”
Riots, looting and unrest continue in Ferguson more than a week after a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager during an altercation on Aug. 9. The predominantly black community was placed under a curfew for the second night in a row Sunday as Gov. Jay Nixon ordered National Guard troops into the area.
“Today like previous years, African-Americans are still under pressure, oppressed and subjected to discrimination. #Ferguson,” Mr. Khamenei continued. “In 1992 a popular uprising protesting the blatant oppression of black ppl couldn’t be subdued by the police so #army got involved. #Ferguson”
The Iranian leader then compared black residents in Ferguson to the 76 Branch Davidians who died in a fire during the 1993 Waco siege.“During Clinton’s presidency, +80 Davidians including men, women & #children were burnt alive at a house. This is their #HumanRights! #Waco,” Mr. Khamenei wrote. “During Bush presidency, besides the bombs they dropped on #Afghan ppl, they created illegal prisons & massacred #prisoners without trials.”
Kurds and Arabs in Iran are systematically oppressed, not to mention women, gays, and the small number of Jews and Christians who haven't escaped the Muslim paradise yet. If you're not a Persian Shiite Muslim, you're out of luck in Khamenei's Iran.
I don't know what's more chilling: That Khamenei actually believes this rubbish or that he knows the truth and spouts this nonsense anyway.
