Iranians took the streets to celebrate the Islamic Revolution of 1979. They did the usual chanting of “Death to America.” No gathering in Iran is complete without that chant.
They burned some flags, burned a President Donald Trump in effigy – you know a usual Saturday in Tehran.
But what shocked America were the signs applauding the anti-Trump protesters according to The Daily Caller.
The signs at the rallies must be approved by government officials, so you know the Mullah’s are loving the anti-Trump protesters.
One sign read, “Americans are welcome and invited to visit Iran.” Another read, “thanks to American people for supporting Muslims.”
Iran’s president said the small crowd gathered to chant “death to America” is a message that the U.S. needs to “speak to the Iranian nation with respect.”
Still other Iranian’s revealed their true feelings thereby crushing the nascent Iranian tourism industry saying, “America and Trump cannot do a damn thing. We are ready to sacrifice our lives for our leader.”
Trump has taken a much harder position on Iran than President Barack Obama. National Security Advisor Michael Flynn said “The Trump Administration will no longer tolerate Iran’s provocations that threaten our interests, the days of turning a blind eye to Iran’s hostile and belligerent actions toward the United States and the world community are over.”
It might just be me, but that statement means a lot more than chants by a few protesters.
