Chairman Zero’s response to the transparently fraudulent “elections” in Iran and subsequent protests is telling indeed. He assures the “winner” Ahmadinnerjacket that he pledges to continue working with them; i.e. continuing to mutter an occasional half-hearted “tsk-tsk” while the world’s foremost terror regime develops nuclear weapons. And to the protesters in the streets whose skulls are being broken by Ahmadinnerjacket’s thugs the message is… studied indifference.
This is typical left-liberal behavior and should come as a surprise to no one. Chairman Zero is an avowed Neo-Marxist, and as such is in solidarity with anti-American regimes around the world. He no more cares about the people being bludgeoned in the streets of Teheran than Bill Clinton cared about the 800,000 Tutsis and Hutus in Africa, or Jimmy Carter cared about the treatment of Soviet Dissidents.
For the matter, how many times have we heard from the left the Saddam Hussein should have been left alone to continue butchering his own people because “He was in a box and no threat to us.” Sounds like many on the left don’t care if brown people are being tortured, gassed, and brutalized, as long as it’s an enemy of America that’s doing it. Back in the seventies, the liberal-left high-fived itself over ending the Vietnam War, indifferent to the millions butchered by Communists in its aftermath.
Leftists don’t care about human rights, they only care about posturing about human rights. They raise a snit fit because some terrorist at Gitmo isn’t getting four-star spa treatment; while on the other side of the minefields and razor wire, some 11,000,000 Cubans are denied basic freedoms, forced to live in horrific poverty while the Communist elite whose boots are on their necks amass vast fortunes in overseas banks. The most a leftist is willing to do is slap a “Free Tibet” or “Stop the Genocide in Darfur” bumper-sticker on his Prius. He will then turn around and vote for the Far Left Democrats like Obama, Pelosi, McDermott, and Kerry who will enable and appease the thugs and dictators who commit the atrocities they claim to oppose.
