It’s Iran’s “Tiananmen Square moment” — and the Liberals, CBC pick the wrong side

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Over the past week, hundreds of thousands of people in Iran have risen up against their dictatorship, demanding freedom and condemning the regime's support for terrorism.

Iranian police have arrested protesters by the hundred, and slaughtered others in the streets.

In June 2009, there was a similar uprising. And the newly elected U.S. president, Barack Obama, sided with the ayatollahs.

Then Obama lifted sanctions against Iran, approved its nuclear program, and sent the dictatorship $1.7 billion in unmarked bills.

This time, however, Donald Trump is president.

While everyone was on their Christmas holidays, including every journalist and politician and diplomat, Trump ended Obama’s foreign policy in a single tweet.

Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau hasn’t said a word about it.

Is it because Justin Trudeau’s brother, Alexandre Trudeau, is an official paid propagandist for the Iranian regime?

Or maybe it’s Bombardier, as it so often is:

They have a $100 million sale of their planes to Iran — financed by, you guessed it, Canadian taxpayers.

Canada’s state broadcaster sees this. And they know what they have to do. I'll show you some of the CBC's shameful "reporting" tonight.

I don’t want any Canadian or American lives lost trying to free Iranians from their own dictatorship. But the very least we can do is marshall our moral authority.

Maybe pretend that those dozens of people were killed when an iceberg melted...

NEXT: To talk more about the situation in Iran, I'm joined by Clifford May, president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.

THEN: Professor Salim Mansur and I talk about his new book, The Qur'an Problem and Islamism: Reflections of a Dissident Muslim.

Ron, I knew you would have something to say about Salim Mansur’s comment regarding the Bible, and I couldn’t agree more.

Ron Voss commented in part,
“So tell me how you are going to overcome the gross dichotomy between the two teachings through interpretation?

I like Professor Salim Mansur and his passionate defence of free speech. However, with respect to The Qur’an Problem that he refers to in the title of his new book, the reality is that there is no solution apart from expunging so much of the Qur’an as to reduce it to a mere pamphlet."

Rouhani is not a moderate and he is liar. Nothing but fabrication over and over.
Why in God’s name is Justine selling them Canadian manufactured planes and Obama giving them money he knew damn well would go to terrorism and Iran’s nuclear development. These western politicians are clearly not on the side of freedom for anyone. They are apologists and or Islamists themselves. Not on our side.

Obummer lifted sanctions and gave them money. So they spent it on food for their people right.
Na they just opened a bank in Canada with Turdos help.

The Iranian uprising is due to “climate change”. It has nothing to do with Iran being a dictatorial theocracy.The hypocracy of the progressive left.

You have a gift, don’t ever lose it. Don’t lose your confidence. Might not seem like much, but many depend on your insight. Thanks for suffering

- Trudeau & Obama are globalists as is the mainstream media. Globalism is not about freedom or human rights. Globalism is about establishing a world wide glorious workers’ prison camp. Trudeau answers to the UN, not the Canadian people.

- All the professional victim groups are creations of or have been taken over by globalists. This is why we hear nothing from Western feminist groups or the LGBTCBCUN community or any other professional victim group about Iran.

- The current Iranian regime is in place because the US had a weak leader in the form of Jimmy Carter. The Shah of Iran was a dictator but he was replaced by something much worse. The first act of the regime was to essentially commit an act of war against the US – the takeover of the US embassy. As long as Carter was president the Iranian regime did as they pleased. When Reagan came along that all changed.

Ezra, would like to see more of Clifford May, president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a refreshing alternative to erudite, arrogant Daniel Pipes.

How many Iran born members do we have in justanass Parliament. Is there not any Canadian born in there. The Canadian born members need to cross over and join the Conservatives. This is a disgrace. We clearly have a little dictator and a bunch of people that could not be dictators in their own Country see a opening here.

Indeed, Chuck. No one who was not born in Canada should be allowed to run for or hold office in Canada. The rules for Canuckistan are obviously quite different.

MONEY FOR NOTHING—says Do I have this right ? Canadians borrow money to lend to basket case Iran-interest free and without security.

The above is nothing compared to Trudeau stealing from our Canada Pension Plan and giving it to Mumbai, India for a housing project for the poor. The final numbers were: out of 2.5 Billion taken from CPP, they made 7 million or 1/25th of 1%. We could have put it in the Bank and got 30 times that profit.
Don’t forget the CPP is our money not the Governments. Here is the short video.

Do I have this right? Canadians borrow money to lend to basket case Iran – interest free and without security. Makes financial sense – to liberals. A conservative might say – we’re keeping our cash for Canadians, but Iran – we’re agnostic and you’re resource rich, so buy some planes. Cash or in kind (no opium please) works.

Obama offered a cash carrot and some encouraging words. A reasonable response for the time. It is challenging enough for democracies to keep up with their people. Iran has no hope. (The CBC pontificates that freedom seeking Iranians are too far ahead, and should mind their place). Expect plenty of blood. It’s the basket case middle east. Their rulers, like all dictators, don’t care.

Those Canadian Liberal MPs – once again, stupidity on display.

Very enlightening insight by Prof. Salim on what we need to avoid.

Be thankful for democracy, freedom and Canadians who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Hey RCMP – did you learn anything from today’s episode? No? Why? Are you so indoctrinated into communist ideology that your mind is closed?

Ron, I know, I do the same with Scheer. If you go through his twitter messages or listen to Question Period, he often surprises me in a good way. I suspect all his grinning is a nervous habit!
