    The progressives at fark dotcom can’t decide whether to cheer on the government of Iran or laugh that Trump is worse than the government of Iran. In either case, progressives never have and never will worry about popular revolt. For my money I can’t wait for the Ayatollahs to call out the tanks to run over people just like the Shah did, if only to read in the New York Times that it’s Trump’s fault.

    Has Liberal MP Maryam Monsef, the Minister for the Status of Women, or
    her government made a statement in support of Iranian Supreme Leader,
    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei yet, against all those Islamophobes who are in
    Iranian streets protesting?
