Outrage: Democrats Block Resolution Condemning Iran For Killing Protesters, Shooting Down Plane

House Democrats on Tuesday blocked a vote on a resolution supporting Iranian citizens protesting against the regime and being killed in the process. democrats resolution iran

Proving once again that there is no level to which the resistance party will not stoop in an effort to block any perception of good coming from this administration.

The resolution, brought forth by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, would have “condemned the Government of Iran for killing 1,500 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government,” according to the Daily Caller.

It would also have “condemned the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, killing 176 people.”

It was blocked by Democrats in the House by a vote of 226-191.

Democrats Siding With the Ayatollah Again democrats resolution iran

Isn’t it funny that when there is an uprising in the Middle East under Barack Obama it’s praised universally and dubbed an ‘Arab Spring.’

But when brave protesters take on the hardliners in the Iranian regime under Trump, Democrats abandon them and pretend it isn’t real.

Numerous videos have cropped up on social media showing police in Iran shooting live ammunition into the crowd of protesters who were calling out the regime for lying about their involvement in shooting down the Ukrainian plane.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to admit what the protesters, many of whom were shouting ‘death to Khomeini,’ were rising up against.

“There are different reasons why people are in the street,” she coldly dismissed.

 

Outrage

As you might imagine, several Republicans were outraged over the resolution being blocked.

“What a disappointment —Democrats just blocked a vote on a resolution supporting the Iranian protestors,” McCarthy tweeted. “This is not the time for partisan politics. This should be a time for the US Congress to speak with one voice to condemn an Iranian regime that kills its own people.”

Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) also took to social media to blast Democrats for being unwilling to take a stand against the Iranian regime.

 

It would seem like a no-brainer.

You know, Congressman John Rutherford drew a lot of heat after calling Democrats “Ayatollah sympathizers” for defending terrorist Qassem Soleimani.

His defense still rings true, perhaps even more so after they blocked this resolution.

“It’s honestly pretty simple,” he wrote. “If you don’t want to be called an Ayatollah sympathizer, don’t sympathize with the Ayatollah.”

Democrats’ vote to block this resolution shows they’re still sympathizing with the Ayatollah while offering no sympathy for the Iranian people.
