In a wilfully ignorant and bigoted world, one man steps forth to represent...

Oh nooo... not that tired old nonsense. Haven't we had enough of calling people the "new Hitler" yet?
We don't want to make the Islamic Republic of Iran mad at us.
Iranians have been mad at the US since it overthrew Mossadegh (who was actually the last democratically elected president of Iran) and imposed the
Shah with his vicious CIA-trained secret police, SAVAK. They've got reason to be mad because the US is interfering in their politics, has tried to
sabotage their efforts to trade oil in currency other than the US dollar, is conducting naval exercises in their back yard, is lying constantly about
their efforts to build nuclear weapons, and is generally FAR more of a threat to them than the US has ever been.
Thank God we had Ronald Reagan who stood up to the Soviets. If you don't stand up to evil they will thrive.
High time someone stood up to the US than, they're the biggest bullies on the planet.
Ron Paul thinks if you ignore the rest of the world they will leave you alone. People fighting for freedom and democracy deserve our support,
not our silence.
So, really, China and Russia should be supporting the tea party people.
And don't even start
with stuff about democracy. The US has no right to talk about it, and US citizens who bang on about it reveal themselves
to be wilfully ignorant about US foreign policy.
Let's not forget. The US has installed death squads in:
Guatemala, Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Iran, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Greece, to name
only a handful.
The US has assassinated the leaders of the following countries: Chile, Panama (at least twice, never mind Noriega), Iran, the Congo, the Dominican
Republic... again the list is not exhaustive.
It's interfered in the democratic process in all of the above plus Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Albania, Portugal, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia,
I mean, that's not even an exhaustive list.
So don't try to make out that the US stands for freedom. No it doesn't. The rest of the world knows that. And it's not standing for freedom now.
It's interfering in another country that, actually, hasn't done anything to it at all.
(Don't bother citing the US embassy hostages. The US had been backing the Shah and training and financing his secret police for years. Iran's
response was actually very restrained, and even included doing a deal with Reagan so the hostages got released first thing into his presidency.)
Try and find out the real history of the misery the US has perpetrated on the world rather than beating your gums in that windy and pompous manner.
