Ayatollah Khamenei uses Ferguson, Mo., to lecture US on democracy, justice

, , , , , ,


Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, today delivered a series of tweets inspired by Ferguson, Mo., that sound like they could have been lifted from President Obama’s comments at Saturday night’s Congressional Black Caucus Foundation awards dinner.

I like how he basically paraphrases THE PRESIDENT on #Ferguson. Great job, WH speechwriters. @michelelfrost @GPollowitz @khamenei_ir

Let’s have a look.

Pres Obama said too many young men of color feel "judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness."

Pres Obama cites statistics that show "significant racial disparities" in the treatment of minorities by police.

In countries that claim to support #democracy,there's more injustice toward humans like in US where blacks are still discriminated.#Ferguson

As Doug Powers reminds us at michellemalkin.com, this comment comes from the leader of a country where citizens are executed for homosexuality, “perversion,” and adultery.

If US govt has a power, then it should use it to solve its own problems& put an end to racial discrimination. #Ferguson #Syria #Iraq 4/13/94

Have you managed to establish #justice inside the US? Can you claim that the 50M black people enjoy the same rights as the whites? #Ferguson

How can US claim to be the leader in #WarOnTerror while it has got its hands dirty with the blood of humans? #Ferguson #Syria #Iraq 12/31/90

As long as we have you here on Twitter, how about a few questions?

@khamenei_ir How's that Christian pastor? Still in jail?

@khamenei_ir What about women's rights in your country. #worryaboutyourself #timetoretire #islamiclawsucks

@khamenei_ir @hempoilcures Do you notice who the President, Attorney General and other American leaders, elected and appointed, are?

@khamenei_ir don’t you have some women to stone or something?

@khamenei_ir you should be more concerned about water shortages, and unemployment in your country, oh! And those #evil happy dancers! #ass

— Hawk RN (@Hawk546nj) September 28, 2014

Oh yeah, those six young Iranians who were arrested for posting a video of themselves dancing to Pharrell’s “Happy.”

Ayatollah @khamenei_ir is obsessed w US #democracy, injustice in #Ferguson yet there is NO accountability for Human Rights abuses in #Iran

@khamenei_ir Please free the detained journalists in Iran!

— Arttu Muukkonen (@amuukkonen) September 28, 2014

@khamenei_ir that is the height of hypocrisy. Iran is amongst the worst human rights violators on the planet.

@khamenei_ir Whilst I disagree with your assertion, I respect your right to be an ignorant and uncivilised religious person! #atheist

@khamenei_ir Agreed….Ferguson bad!!! Are your MILLIONS of Black Slaves upset about it? #JustBEHEADthemIFso

Somebody should hack @khamenei_ir's nudes.
