DEMS GO SILENT: After Trashing Trump’s Drone Strike, Dems Go Quiet on Pro-Democracy Protests

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.13.20

Top Democrats clammed-up this week after blasting President Trump’s US Drone Strike against a top Iranian General; largely dismissing the growing pro-Democracy protests sweeping the streets of Tehran and beyond.

“Democratic congressional leaders and presidential candidates who were unsparing in their criticism of President Trump for the escalation with Iran over the past two weeks largely have gone silent now that the protests on the streets of Tehran and beyond have turned their rage toward the regime — and not the Trump White House,” reports Fox News.

“Even as videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse protesters, so far among the 2020 Democratic candidates only former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., have spoken out in support of the people,” adds Fox.

“The Iranian people walk around the US and Israeli flags on the ground – rather than walk on them,” posted Richard Grenell, the US Ambassador to Germany.

“Videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse demonstrators protesting against the Islamic Republic after the country mistakenly downed a Ukrainian airline plane shortly after takeoff from Tehran,” reports Fox News.

“There was no immediate report in Iranian state-run media on the incident near Azadi, or Freedom, Square in Tehran, but, if true, could be seen as an act of defiance against President Trump who warned the regime against the use of deadly force,” adds Fox.

President Trump tweeted his support for the Iranian demonstrators on social media, warning leaders in Tehran “Don’t kill your protesters.”

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.31.19

A crowd of dozens of Iran-backed protesters stormed the US embassy in Baghdad Tuesday; crashing a gate while chanting “Down, Down USA!” in response to American airstrikes targeting militants in the region.

“Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!” posted President Trump on Twitter.

 

“The embassy attack, one of the worst in recent memory, followed deadly U.S. airstrikes on Sunday that killed 25 fighters of the Iran-backed group, the Kataeb Hezbollah. The U.S. military said the airstrikes were in retaliation for last week’s killing of an American contractor in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base that it had blamed on the militia,” reports Fox News.
