well, they would be idiots
They are indeed idiots. These people put their lives on the line for freedom (and we do what, send teabags to our congressmen?) and some FReepers still can’t be bothered to root them on, because their own preconcieved notion that all Iranians are Islamonuts and hate the US gets in the way of reality.
Here’s an excerpt from an Iranian blog: Amir, Mashhad, aged 23: Please let the world know the people of Iran are using the election and its outcome as an excuse, their real problem is the whole system and the corrupt regime of the Islamic Republic. Anything that happens to us is because of this religion. How can I make you understand, religious beliefs are personal and should not be enforced on the public.
The Iranians need to arm themselves, they say. They can’t keep firearms, they have no 2nd amendment. We in America have millions of firearms yet we aren’t out in the streets protesting 0bama with them. We have nothing stopping us yet we do hardly anything, while these Iranians could be shot yet they go out and protest anyway. These FReepers are so damn arrogant that they see fit to demean an oppressed people from behind their own protective screen of free speech while they themselves don’t do what they yell at the Iranians to do.
Screw ‘em. Prayers for these brave Iranians. IRAN AZADI!
