As a follow-on to our recent piece on Iran’s aggressive behavior since the Iran nuclear ‘deal,’ we report today on the fabulous hoot’nanny in Tehran to celebrate the 36th anniversary of Iran seizing the U.S. embassy and holding scores of Americans hostage for 444 days. Thousands of Iranians gathered outside the former U.S. embassy, as well as in other Iranian cities, to chant ‘Death to America’ and burn American flags. Signs reading ‘Down with America,’ were seen and government officials gave rousing anti-American speeches.
Iranian state media unleashed a barrage of anti-American conspiracy theories, a KFC opened for two days was closed, more businessmen with American ties have been arrested, and a billboard in Tehran with an image mocking the U.S. Iwo Jima memorial was established.
With friends like these, who needs enemies.
The Iranian Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, declared today a national holiday, the national day to fight against global arrogance. The New York Times quotes Farshad Ghorbanpour, a political analyst who has long said the nuclear deal would lead to positive changes and more freedoms, “All these arrests baffle me.” I wonder if the White House and their progressive minions are baffled as well or if the president will apologize to the American people.
