Democratic politicians and their allies in the Democrat-media complex are not the only ones showing support for the Wall Street protests that have now spread nationwide.
Foreign dictatorships like Iran and Venezuela have sided with the protesters as well.
According to an Associated Press article at the Washington Post, an Iranian military commander said the protests at the beginning of an ‘American Spring” that will ultimately destroy capitalism in the West:
Gen. Masoud Jazayeri of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said the protests against corporate greed and the gap between rich and poor are a revolution in the making that will topple what he called the Western capitalist system.
Reuters adds that Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez has joined Iran in supporting the protests.
Although still convalescing from cancer surgery in June followed by four rounds of chemotherapy, the 57-year-old Venezuelan president is quickly returning to the tough rhetoric and strong views that have made him famous worldwide.
Not surprisingly, Chavez expressed solidarity with American activists who have been staging rallies and marches against what they view as corporate greed by Wall Street.
Both leaders are salivating over the idea that the protests might spark an end to America’s caitalist system.
“The failure of the U.S. president to resolve the Wall Street crisis will turn this economic movement into a political and social movement protesting the very structure of the U.S. government,” Jazayeri was quoted in the official Iranian news media.
“A revolution and a comprehensive movement against corruption in the U.S. is in the making. The last phase will be the collapse of the Western capitalist system,” he reportedly added.
Fausta Wertz writes at Hot Air:
Over at the NYT, Jennifer Preston writes that Protest Spurs Online Dialogue on Inequity. Inequity, as in, lazy freeloading dirty hypocrites demanding $20-per-hour pay for doing nothing, while defecating on police cars, and tearing down sinks and vandalizing honest businesses struggling to stay viable in this economy?
Or perhaps the hundreds of companies suing Chavez for nationalizing their businesses in Venezuela?
No, I didn’t think so.
“Help! I’m being repressed!” Wertz concludes.
