I could be wrong, but I’m not going to let that stop me saying I don’t care how many people the Mullahs kill in Iran. Here’s one time I’m on Obama’s side.
I don’t believe that the people rioting in the streets are all that much different from the people tear-gassing them and shooting them. It’s just who happens to have control of the tear gas and the guns. I think Iran is a country of 70 million assholes, as in, some people have one, some people are one. As with almost every Muslim country, everyone worth a damn has already gotten the hell out. Most home-bound Iranians are one.
We’ve been waiting 30 years for the so-called disaffected, Westernized Iranian youth to make a move. Instead, they attend stonings and patronize prostitutes with no cognitive dissonence whatsoever. Now they riot over Tweedledum.
The riots over the Lakers win are more politically significant than this standard issue Muslim street violence over the Christian equivalent of how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
