Terrorist Monster Eliminated; Democrat Establishment Freaks Out


"While some in Washington are busy criticizing Trump...Iraqi youth, celebrating the killing of #Iran's IRGC Quds Force chief Qasem Soleimani, give candy to the Kurdistan 24 TV correspondent covering events in Baghdad's iconic Tahrir Square." - Heshmat Alavi, 4 January 2020, https://twitter.com/HeshmatAlavi/status/1213436443965693952

President Trump Stopped An Imminent Attack

On Friday, January 3, 2020, at about 1 a.m. local time, a drone airstrike ordered by President Trump resulted in the death of Iran's second most powerful leader, the murderous General Qassem Soleimani.

The list of reasons why the U.S. would assassinate Soleimani is numerous.

Iranian Terrorist Calls It "Terrorism"

We know why the Iranian leadership might complain; Foreign Minister Javad Zarif threatened:
  • "The US' act of international terrorism, targeting & assassinating General Soleimani—THE most effective force fighting Daesh (ISIS), Al Nusrah, Al Qaeda et al—is extremely dangerous & a foolish escalation. The US bears responsibility for all consequences of its rogue adventurism." 

The Democrats Wring Their Hands 

But what about the Democrats? Some of them seemed less concerned about American lives than the murderous Soleimani's.
  • "He deserved to be brought to justice for his crimes against American troops and thousands of innocents throughout the region." - Joe Biden
  • "There is no question that Qassim Suleimani was a threat to that safety and security, and that he masterminded threats and attacks on Americans and our allies, leading to hundreds of deaths. But there are serious questions about how this decision was made." - Pete Buttigieg
  • "Soleimani was a murderer, responsible for the deaths of thousands, including hundreds of Americans. But this reckless move escalates the situation with Iran." - Elizabeth Warren
  • "War with Iran is the last thing we need." - Andrew Yang
  • "Trump's dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars." - Bernie Sanders
  • "We cannot stay silent as this lawless President recklessly moves us closer to yet another unnecessary war." - Rashida Tlaib
  • "We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official." - Ilhan Omar
  • "An act of war against Iran." - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Hollywood Kneels

  • "Dear #Iran, The USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us." - actress Rose McGowan (she later walked it back and is probably on a social media break)
  • "Trump in full fascist 101 mode-,steal  and lie - untill there’s nothing left and start a war - He’s so idiotic he doesn’t know he just attacked Iran And that’s not like anywhere else." - actor and prolific Twitter blocker John Cusack
  • "Hello fellow Americans. Do you know this man? Did you know he was your enemy? What? Never heard of him? By the end of today you will be trained to hate him. You will be glad Trump had him assassinated. You will do as you are told. Get ready to send your sons & daughters off 2 war."" - Filmmaker Michael Moore

Leftist Media Grovel




  • "Breaking news: Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi state television reports" - The Washington Post
  • "We don't want outsiders to rule us." "Iraqis mourn the top Iranian general killed in the U.S. strike" - CNN
  • "Four Years Ago, Trump Had No Clue Who Iran’s Suleimani Was. Now He May Have Kicked Off WWIII." - The Intercept

Ordinary Iranians Rejoice

Now, compare the reactions of the leftist Democrats in the political/media/Hollywood circles of power with the reactions of ordinary Iranians on social media. These are people RESPONDING to leftists -- who normally claim to speak for them as disadvantaged people.
