Nope, this isn’t a crowd of liberal students protesting President Bush at Berkeley… or Harvard… or University of Colorado.
It is a crowd of democratic-minded students protesting a real tyrant, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, at Tehran University. (h/t – GatewayPundit)
An estimated 100 students staged a rare demonstration Monday against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling him a “dictator” and scuffling with hardline students at Tehran University.
Ahmadinejad, who was giving a speech to a select group at the university to mark the beginning of the academic year, ignored the chants of “death to the dictator” and continued with his speech on the merits of science and the pitfalls of Western-style democracy, witnesses said.
The protesters scuffled with hardline students who were chanting “thank you president” while police looked on from outside the university gates. The protesters dispersed after the car carrying Ahmadinejad left the campus.
Students were once the main power base of Iran’s reform movement but have faced intense pressure in recent years from Ahmadinejad’s hardline government, making anti-government protests rare.
But Bush is the real enemy of course, because as we all know protesting in the United States has been outlawed by our eeeeevil regime.
Meantime, those on the American Left swoon for the Iranian leader who vows to destroy our nation even though she’d be the first one beheaded under Islamic rule.
