I'm not surprised. Those people are a bunch of SAVAGES! I'm sure someone will be in here to tell us about the peace-loving New Yorkers and how they're not all like that, but the video is pretty compelling. How many New Yorkers go and kill people each year? If New Yorkers don't like being called violent savages then they need to stop being violent savages.

Where are the peace-loving New Yorker protests condemning this violence? Exactly. When will Americans wake up and face down this scourge in our midst?
 
2012-09-28 11:43:52 AM  
Disgusting.
 
2012-09-28 11:44:02 AM  
Who were these protesters? Average Americans, or expatriated/asylum seeking Iranians who had to flee from Iran? I would expect the latter, and be saddened if it were the former.
 
2012-09-28 11:44:59 AM  
Angry mob? I see a picture of 10-15 protesters. If that's what passes for the Great Mobility in this country, we have a long way to go.

Lovely. Now, we've pulled yet another strut from our moral foundation - whenever we complain about our embassies being protested or ambassadors being harassed, their governments can point to this incident and say, "hey, you got something on your face, there..."

It says there were anti-regime Iranians (I guess they were angry that their relatives were killed or something), mixed with Syrians who are pissed off about Iranian involvement in Syrian's civil war.

I would think you'd have to have a pretty big gripe with the regime to even know who the guy was just by looking at him, so it was probably some people who had to flee, maybe some of those gay people they don't have in Iran.

Ahmadinejad is hilarious. Barack Obama gave a huge string of speeches about how terrible suppression of free speech and arrests of protesters were in Iran; then we had Occupy Everything, and the US kept arresting protestors and suppressing free speech. Ahmadinejad took the podium at the UN and made a huge show of (hilariously) repeating all of Barack Obama's arguments about how important freedom of speech is and how people shouldn't be jailed just for protesting against the establishment.

He denies the holocaust, he calls 9/11 "Mysterious," he constantly raves about the threat of the Zionists. He's a camera guy, he wants his own sitcom. Look at him when he speaks, he has a huge farking smile> because he thinks he's hilarious. Spoiler: He is!

Seeing as at least one was wrapped in an Iranian flag I would agree.

FTA: A coalition of Iranian-American groups organized the protest against Ahmadinejad - one of the largest gatherings staged against the Iranian leader in recent years during the General Assembly.

It's true. Not many people know this, but way back in the day, he was a big name in the comedy club circuit up in NYC. Night after night, he'd pack people in, have them rolling. His whole shtick was that he was a redneck arab, with a 'Git 'er done for the Prophet, peace be upon his name' which was hilarious even back then. Then one day he was up on stage at a dive in Queens where I was running bar, and this pack of Rabbis came in and heckled him so hard he went beet-red and ran off the stage in tears. Never heard any more of him until years later, when I found out he became the president of Iran and was all anti-Semite. Funny how these things work out.

Well, when anti-Iranian government protestors protest in Iran, things get shooty.

Say what you want about it reflecting badly on the country, but they are Iranians and Syrians protesting here because we don't shoot protestors.

We need to understand how our system has created these people. Our neo-colonialism have exploited the average New Yorker to the point they cannot stand it anymore. We have no one else but ourselves to blame. Really, if you look at it, it is a beautiful piece of performance art about the oppressed New Yorker expressing their rage yet still impotent towards the corporatist powers.

There are a several of "moral high gound" posts here already... honestly? I am getting sick and tired of being the world's doormat. A little in-kind response is not necessarily a bad thing. It's not even like they murdered the guy, as happened to U.S. diplomats. All they did was verbally abuse and put some fear into him.
 
2012-09-28 12:12:27 PM  

mcicchi: Wait, did they murder him? No? Just yelled at him? Fine by me, the rest of you get off you high horse.


Threatening someone with violence is not "just yelling" at him. And yes, IANAL, but 'Run away, you scared s**t!' is a threat. Go to an Obama rally and yell, "I'm going to kill you, you damn atheist Muslim Kenyan time-traveller!" at the top of your lungs. Then tell the secret service to get off their high horse.

Even if it was illegal, it was still a disgusting and shameful act which makes New York, and by extension the USA, look bad.

That is the most blatant bullshiat lie I have ever heard. Might want to do some fact checking on that before you start claiming Strom Thurman was a porn star before politics.

And at the end of the day it isn't some random people mad at Iran for being Iran or because of some movie or cartoon, it's a bunch of people who were chased out of their country and probably had relatives killed by the regime.

this was essentially a group of MEK supporters.

De-listing them is a HUGE mistake. These people are cultists. They are hated by everyday Iranians because they are Iranians who sided with Saddam in the Iran / Iraq war.

They have killed Americans. The only reason they were de-listed is because they funneled HUGE amounts of money to people like Rudy, Tom Ridge, Howard Dean etc etc. These people should have been tried for aiding and abetting a terrorist organization (American Muslims have been jailed for much much less).

That is why Rudy is there.

These are the folks who have been supposedly working with the Israelis and the US to kill Iranian civilian scientists.

So yelling 'run away' is the equivalent of yelling 'I'm going to kill you'?

I bet I could go to an Obama rally and yell 'run away' and I would NOT be arrested for threatening the life of the President.

Of course I'm not condoning what they did, but when you have the CIA messing with your country for years and even staging a coup to remove a democratically elected leader, there is going to be some resentment. That incident didn't take place in a bubble and I am sure you would be looking for revenge too if the tables were turned.

I don't think I need to tell you that yelling "Run away, you scared s**t" is far different than yelling "I'm going to kill you, you damn atheist Muslim Kenyan time-traveller!". But good to know that you think protesting against a representative of a murderous regime is disgusting and makes us look bad. Like I said, get off your high horse.
