Soleimani Funeral

| January 9, 2020


Terhan Soleimani Funeral

Poetrooper sends us a letter he received about the turnout in Iran for Soleimani’s funeral. While unverified, it certainly seems to fit with what we know about the brutal theocracy in power there.

From Karmel Melamed:

Dear Friends,

Many of you have asked me what the deal is with the Soleimani funerals so I am sharing my information as an Iranian American journalist who is following this story closely. Please DO NOT believe the U.S or Iranian regime media hype regarding the Soleimani funeral in Iran!

Journalists and bloggers in Iran that I am in contact with have indicated to me that people in Iran have been forced to attend his public funeral by the regime thugs or face imprisonment or even possibly being killed. Iranians are in fear for their lives that is why they have come out to the streets to “mourn”. The regime has shut down schools, forced businesses to shut down and shut down public offices for this charade funeral! Children have been forced to cry for the TV cameras. It’s a big show and a big production the Iranian regime has undertaken to show they are in control and the people of Iran supposedly “loved Soleimani”. The regime has bused in Shiite supporters and their family members from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria for this big production so the crowds will look large for the cameras.

The majority of people in Iran are quite happy this man who murdered innocent Iranians recently during the protests is dead. They are privately dancing and celebrating in their homes at the news of his demise. They are sadly under major duress from the regime and forced to come out for the funeral or face dire consequences!

This is like any other major funeral in a brutal totalitarian dictatorship. I remember Kim Jong Il’s funeral in North Korea several years ago! Same deal here in Iran! The Iranian regime’s thugs are masters of propaganda that make the notorious Goebbels look like a kindergartner!

Thanks, Poe!

    Where o where is my shocked face when I need one? I think this is one reason why President Trump is showing some restraint in just blasting the hell out of Iran. Maybe he feels that there are enough people that either remember the “good times” before 1979, (not that the Shah was an angel) or there are people who are just fed up with the constant warfare that has been going on for the last 40 years.

    Tanks Poe! Bet we won’t see this on the lame stream media.

    The talking heads at Commie News Network, Mega-Stupid No-Balls Creeps, and other such propaganda outlets could not be reached for intelligent comment.

      Ahh yes, the DNC Pravda mess media which still wants it all done Jimmeh Kahtuh style, pussyfooting around while everyone walks over and spits on you!

  3. Berliner says:

    Read elsewhere yesterday that hot lunches for 40 thousand were provided for attendees as encouragement. Those that didn’t attend were subject to urging by gunfire, which may account for the large (75) death toll attributed to “stampede”.

      TANSTAAFL.

    • Firebase says:

      Similar stampedes happen on a regular basis at the annual Saudi Arabian religious pilgrimage, known as the “Hajj.” In September, 2015 over 2000 “pilgrims” were crushed and stampeded to death in Mecca. That was one of the worst, but this is a common and regular occurrence in these countries.

      The recent death toll of 75 in Iran pales by comparison, and does not seem far-fetched to me at all. Although, that’s not saying that perhaps a few gunshots may have been fired into the crowd by Iranian security forces, and maybe that’s what started the stampede?

    Rush was talking about this yesterday.

    Some day that goat Khameini will die, and none of those people living in fear for their lives will mourn his passing.

  7. 26Limabeans says:

    At least the Democrats pay their fake protesters
    to attend their fake protests.

  8. Hack Stone says:

    Anyone find it ironic that more people mourned the passing of this international terrorist than mourned the passing of Daniel Bernath?

    • rgr769 says:

      I heard Bernasty only had about six present at his last hurrah. Some of the DRG we’re unavailable due to incarceration or intoxication.

    In my best Chris Farley voice…”Remember that time Khomeni’s half naked body fell off his bearer’s stretcher and rolled under the van like a frisbee??? That was cool”

    The Norks have Potemkin villages, why shouldn’t the Farsis have Potemkin funerals…

    Rest In Pieces mothatfucka!

    It was said that Soleimani’s remains were shipped back via Coach section which was actually fine and dandy because he DID NOT have to worry about leg room. He got a flaming send off to go meet his “Virgins” but everyone is certain that he’s sorry his pecker and balls got blown off. Iranians are screeching “Death to America!” while Soleimani’s remains were being carried in the back of an AMERICAN MADE Chevy Pickup.

    How much you wanna bet that for every “aloha snackbar” shouted, there’s at least fifty grumbled “Fuck that guy”s?
