Iran Protesters Cheer Trump, Call for Sanctions

I guess they must be Islamophobes.

They are risking their lives to bring freedom to Iran, and vow to continue their protests.

"These uprisings have just begun. People are not at all willing to give up," one activist told Fox News from the streets of Iran.

The protesters are members of the long banned opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI, also known as the MEK). The group's leader, Maryam Rajavi, has been directly blamed by the Iranian government for fomenting the unrest.

The group is calling for Iran’s oil exports to also be subject to sanctions, the ability of the Tehran regime to access the international banking system to be cut off, as well as other punitive measures.

The activists predict stronger methods will work, and are thanking the president and the American public for keeping up the pressure.

"We thank you President Trump. We call on all of the supporters of the people who press this regime from different fronts, to put pressure with you and overthrow with us," the activist told Fox News in broken English.

"In Iran taxis and buses and public places, you heard people talking that they are happy that the United States and President Trump is actually taking actions on the side of the Iranian people and as you know, the overthrow of this regime and establishment of a free country is in the interest of the entire world."

But not in Obama's interests. Or the interests of the left.

That's why the media reacted to the protests the same way it did under Obama. It tried to ignore them, dismiss them, minimize them, distort them and then finally banish them from the news. The left became Iran Firsters with the Iran Deal. And they will do anything they can to protect Obama's radioactive legacy. 

So look for the media to ignore the men and women fighting for their freedom in the streets... while reporting on what sort of candy, President Trump eats.
